Win a $50 Sephora eGift card from Makeup and Beauty Blog

Rise and shine, morning glory. It’s going to be a beautiful day. ๐Ÿ™‚


How was your night? I spent mine relaxing with the men in my life, a remote control and some leftover Chinese food. Speaking of remote controls, you know what movie I really enjoyed? Do you remember Mickey Blue Eyes — the Married to the Mob-type comedy with Hugh Grant, James Caan and Jeanne Tripplehorn (“Fuggedaboutit!”)? Tabs queued it up using Netflix online.

It was released in 1999, which was back before Robert Pattinson stole Hugh Grant’s foppish hair, but thanks to Netflix I’ve been seeing a lot of movies I missed the first time around.

Anywho, what are your plans for today? Are you doing anything fun? I’m hoping that after doing my chores around the house we can drive up to Napa for the day, but I don’t know about that… It’s awfully Hundred-Acre Wood right now. If the fog doesn’t clear, I may just visit Sephora instead, because that’s always fun.

And, ya know, it’s even MORE fun when you’ve got one of these in your pocket/purse (I think you know what time it is):

    I don’t always wear primer, but I have been wearing cream shadows a lot, and they act in place of a primer for me. Current faves come from Bobbi Brown, Benefit, and Tarina Tanantino. I want to get a couple of the paint pots in the recent MAC Cham Pale release too – but it’s hard to justify when I have so many already.

  430. Alka says:

    I’m a total sucker for romantic comedies. Most eyelid primers tend to irritate my eyelids – I am extremely allergic to MAC paints and paint pots (boo hoo) so I just use a bit of foundation or concealer on my oily lids and watch things get wonky after a few hours. ๐Ÿ™ Yay for Sephora gift card giveaways!

  431. Went to Ulta today and bought my first Urban Decay product – Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Also bought Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Smoothing Serum…..hope it works good cause it sure was expensive!

    My husband and I have sent our Netflix queue through major upheaval lately, particularly with streaming. “Mickey Blue Eyes” was surprisingly good, and Jimmy Caan is one of my all-time favorite actors. Squeezing into the romcom category going back decades, I love “The Thin Man” with William Powell and Myrna Loy.

    Was just in Sephora yesterday (the in-laws came to town and had to make a MOA run to the Microsoft store), and picked up more of the Korres white tea cleanser and lip butter. Love the Mango color.

    My holy grail eyeshadow primer is Too Face Shadow Insurance topped by a dab of Fyrinnae’s Pixie Epoxy – my mineral shadows (go indie!!) stay put all day, no sparkle fall-out, and it brings out the vibrancy of the pigments as well as showcases complex colours beautifully. However, I am in love with Makeup Forever’s Orange Aqua Cream for lips, that would be the first thing I would buy, though I must find some way to make it not dry up and settle into the cracks! Hmm…

    OMG, Mickey Blue Eyes. The Hubs and I laughed so hard when Hugh was trying to imitate the “mob accent” that we thought we’d die. It was like Daffy Duck meets I-Don’t-Know-What, but we were rolling. We’ll always remember the movie for that part. ๐Ÿ™‚
