Heya, ladies. How was your Friday? Sorry I haven’t posted much today, but I had a little disaster with Facebook early this morning that sorta threw me off schedule.
Long story short, but someone hacked my account yesterday and, pretending to be me, was hitting my Facebook friends up for money! Yup, several readers alerted me to it this morning. I quickly changed my password, but it was too late. Facebook disabled my account, and I still don’t know how many people the hacker may have contacted in my name.
ALERT: If you get/got a weird Facebook chat request from a version of me supposedly stuck in London after being robbed at gunpoint, I’m so sorry! It wasn’t me. Tabs and I are still here at home in California.
Here’s how I think the hacker got access to my account: I must have fallen for a phishing scam. I don’t recall when or if I did, but it looks like others have been going through the very same thing.
The nerve of some people, right?
I was a little fussy after the Facebook fiasco and didn’t get a lot accomplished, but I did find a few minutes for the NARS Kuala Lumpur Eyeshadow Duo ($32).
How cool is it that NARS named it after the capital of Malaysia? Francois, if you’re reading this, name something after Novato, California (LOL!)
OOH! I’m lovin’ the lighter shade there on the left — an iridescent golden melon that flashes plum when the light hits it just right.
Texture-wise, both shadows feel soft, like a cool breeze, clinging tightly to my lids and depositing a sheer, shimmery layer of color.
This doll’s gonna be a crowd pleaser. It’s easy to apply and should flatter a lot of different skin tones.
The second color in the duo is a highly pigmented reddish plum with brown undertones and a *sprinkling* of golden glitter.
I think it’s a little tricky to work with because of the color’s intensity. My first crack at it with a flat eyeshadow brush kinda failed. It looked too dark, almost brick red, like a ‘tow up vampire reject!
I had better luck using a fluffy, domed eyeshadow brush (the MAC 217) using a light touch. That produced a sheer, muted wash of plum.
Next time you’re near a NARS counter, take a minute to visit Kuala Lumpur.
I’m so glad it’s Friday. Do you have any plans yet? Whatever they are, I hope you feel good (and your makeup looks fly).
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
