Vets say he’s an American Shorthair, the cat-chall breed for kitties of questionable lineage (the miscellaneous cat-egory of the kitty world, if you will).
And I’d always figured Tabs was cool with being called an American Shorthair, but ever since the arrival of MAC’s Fabulous Felines, I’ve been finding evidence to the contrary — posters of exotic purebreds on the wall, copies of Cat Fancy around the house, and his diary left open to a page in which he referred to himself as an “Egyptian Mau/Ragdoll/Toyger hybrid.”
It’s probably just a minor identity crisis brought on by the Palace Pedigreed color story, which he says he likes because it makes him “feel fancy,” and who could blame him? I like it too, especially the plums and blues.

Up until a few years ago, I was terrified of getting either color anywhere near my brown eyes.
Now, I’m hooked!
I tried to make blue eyeliner the focal point of my look today, and here’s what I came up with…
I started with a few colors from the Palace Pedigreed quad (MAC Fabulous Felines): shimmery pink Courtly on my brow bone, satin mauve Quite Spoiled on my lid and matte gray Russian Blue in the crease and the outer corner.
Then, I lined both my upper and lower waterlines with Palace Pedigreed’s Russian Blue eyeshadow, ending with a thick cat eye line drawn along my upper lashes with Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in Signature Blue.
The dark lip colors from the Bobbi Brown Black Velvet collection have really been inspiring me lately, so I decided to add a shiny, deep berry lip with Lipglass in Lap of Luxury (a shimmery eggplant) above Frost Lipstick in Cunning (a shimmery berry).
Last, but not least, the cheeks — and since the eyes and lips pack some color, I went with quieter cheeks using pearly yellowish pink Mineralize Blush in Pet Me.
If you’re not feeling the blue liner look, you could try a plum instead. I really like Superslick Liquid Eye Liner in Smoky Heir. Hey, it’s always good to have options, right?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I’m happy to report that none of my teeth are falling out (yet).
