El Hub asked me if I wanted to go get a slice of pizza with him for lunch today, and I said…
LOL! Sometimes you just really need a slice of pizza.
On the way to the pizza joint he noticed some glitter on my cheeks.
“It’s like Miley Cyrus,” I said, referring to the glitter. “Can’t stop, won’t stop.”
Between the MAC 3D Glitters I was wearing earlier and the Lancome eyeshadow I’m wearing now, the theme for today is definitely looking like glitter.
Which is all up in the mix, by the way, in Lancome’s new $51 six-pan Azur Chic Color Design eyeshadow palette.
But it’s cool. As long as I don’t forget to tap my brush to unload some of it before applying, very little of it ends up on my cheeks.
A few flecks do make their way down there, though, especially with one or two of the shades, particularly the deep bronze I’m wearing here on my lash lines and in the crease.
Its teensy, tiny flecks of gold glitter don’t really show up in swatches, but they do show up on my lids when I buff things out.
And, uh, because of the amount of sparkle we’re talking about here, you might want to throw one of the matte shades from your collection into the mix for contrast. For the bronzy gold look I’m wearing here, I used warm reddish brown MAC Texture in the crease to balance out the shimmer.
I’m still getting to know Azur Chic better, but even with the minor fallout isn, I like it so far. I think I’ll be able to do a lot of looks with these colors. This doesn’t seem like a run-of-the-mill summer eye palette.
Azur Chic is currently available with the rest of the Lancome French Riviera summer collection at Lancome Counters and online.
Have you heard Chandelier by Australian singer/songwriter Sia? I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since I heard it last night on The Voice.
Pretty catchy tune. I like it, and there’s something haunting about it… I can’t figure out if it’s trying to make me laugh, or cry.
Sia has written songs for Beyonce and Rihanna before, and this one does have kind of a Ri-Ri vibe to it, I think. Apparently, the video is also getting a lot of attention since it came out a few days ago.
It stars a young dancer named Maddie Ziegler from the Lifetime reality TV show Dance Moms and has some pretty phenomenal choreography. It’s like the video really is the song in visual form… Makes me wish I was still taking dance classes.
Check it out.
Hope you’re having a good Tuesday so far. Your nephew says “mrow!”
