Never mind that the silver faux-croc cover of LORAC’s Silver Screen Palette ($30) kinda reminds me of my ashy winter legs. When I peeked inside, I saw stars!
I’m soooo into you!
Silver Screen, one of three limited-edition goodies from LORAC’s new Hollywood Ice Holiday 2009 collection, comes with eight neutral eyeshadows, two blushes, one lip gloss and an iddy biddy double-sided eye brush.
More of LORAC’s Hollywood Ice Holiday 2009 collection…
- The Double Booked Full Face Collection ($55, a limited edition palette available exclusively at Sephora)
- Couture Shine Gloss Collection ($23, limited edition glosses, available at both Sephora and Ulta)
NOTE: Silver Screen’s exclusive to Ulta, and I haven’t seen it for sale online yet, so peep your local Ulta store for availability.
Silver Screen’s mix of warm and cool eyeshadows first caught my eye. I dig the buttery smooth texture of LORAC’s shadows and how easy I think it makes them to apply and blend, yet somehow they still manage to last all day long, too, even on my oily lids.
If you’re new to eye makeup and confused by color pairings, you might give it a try. LORAC makes it easy for beginners by grouping their shadows into warm and cool shades.

Shimmery, peachy pink blush
Matte rose blush
And I appreciate the handy dandy smokey eye tutorial on the back of the box. It’s just a nice little touch with step-by-step instructions and a map illustrating the proper placement of the shadows.
I’m gonna give the eye look a try later this week…
Before you jet, peruse the pics, and let me know what you think.

Squash it good… Squash it REAL GOOD!
In other news, I’ve been on this weird personal mission to explore new veggies. Last week I bought my first spaghetti squash. Of course, I have no idea what to do with it.
I might just follow the instructions on the label and try nuking it in the microwave, but that’s awfully uninspiring…
Got any ideas for me? The easier the better, LOL!
