Today was the first day in a really long time that I wore a sweater and long pants…
On the one hand, I’m gonna miss the hell out of summer. On the other hand, it’s nice when your office isn’t hotter than a sweat lodge.
I kid you not, yesterday it was so hot in hurrrrr that I had hallucinations! — including one with Tabs meowing to the tune of R. Kelly’s Ignition.
One of the coolest things about the cooling weather, though, is that it means holiday makeup isn’t too far away.
Yeah, boo. H-O-L-I-D-A-Y.
If you’re the type to pre-plan your Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year’s makeup months ahead of time, 1) you’re much more organized than I am, and 2) you might really dig the new $44 Urban Decay Shattered Face Case.
It’s one of a dynamic duo of recently released Face Cases from Urban Decay (now available on urbandecay.com and coming soon to stores and counters), with a mix of wearable cool-toned beige, gray and purple eyeshadows, and slightly warmer peaches and pinks for cheeks and lips.
When my neighborhood Fed Ex guy, who likes to joke around with me, noticed my makeup today, he said he’s seen me look “much crazier.”
I’m pretty sure it was a compliment.
I’m happy to report only minimal fallout from the Shattered Face Case. Ya know, sometimes with UD shadows, I notice a sprinkling of pigment beneath my eyes, especially when I don’t tap-tap-tap to unload my brush during application.
Not the case with these colors.
As for the blushes, they totally rock. Just so pigmented and soft. And while I like the color of the peachy highlighter, it’s maybe a tad too frosty for me… You might want to go a little easy on it if your pores tend to give you drama.
I could probably have done with a different name for the case…because Shattered Face? I get it — the shattered design on the front of the palette — but it’s not my all-time favorite product name.
Eh, I’ll just call it Urban Decay’s Fun New Palette Filled with Cool-Toned Eye Colors!
See now isn’t that better?
On that note, I leave you with these wise words from R. Kelly…
Have a great night!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
