So maybe stretchy pants and overindulging in holiday yummage aren’t conducive to feeling glamorous. I could use an emergency glamor adjustment, and I’m thinking the Clarins Barocco Eye Colour Trio could help.

Can you imagine the looks you could bang out next year with these three sheer shadows? There’s a shimmery sunset gold (with traces of blackish brown, just like a tigerÒ€ℒs coat!), a matte brownish black, and a shimmery blackish gold.

This particular trio here is in need of a good home…

Are you ready to help? πŸ™‚

  40. M. Gellhorn says:

    My resolution for 2011 is to use as many items in my makeup collection as possible on a regular basis, rather than continually picking up the same couple of favorites as all my other stuff collects dust. That way, I can continue to justify new purchases!

    I want to wish a happy New Year to you, Karen, to all of your awesome guest bloggers, and, of course, to the inimitable Tabs. In 2010, I visited Makeup and Beauty Blog at least once a day, and always discovered something informative, entertaining or just plain fun!

But I realized that theres nothing wrong with saying what you I am going to do more of the things I love πŸ™‚

    Watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall as I browse beauty blogs. Everytime someone mentions Clarins Barocco, I think about the beautiful packaging but high price tag. And the Gwen Stefani ft. Eve song starts playing in my head … what was it? It goes like this, “If I had all the money in the world, etc etc..” Seriously, if I had all the money in the world, I’d spend it on make up & charities!

    The last pair of shoes I bought were a pair of red silk heels from Rocket Dog. The color was GORGEOUS and taking them on a small walk around the store was fine, but oh man… I thought I needed to add heel cushions in the back (since they were the slightest bit too big) and ended up doing the worst possible thing to my feet! It’s been years since I couldn’t handle wearing my shoes all night, but I was *that girl* barefoot on the dance floor because I literally could not wear my shoes a second longer and remain upright.
