Every weekday at 5 p.m. on the dot, the children in my neighborhood leave their homes and start yelling like banshees in the street.
I’ve tried to figure out why they do it, and what they’re yelling about, but as far as I can tell, there’s no rhyme or reason.
This really has nothing to do with my makeup today (I’m wearing the new MAC Smokeluxe Veluxe Pearlfusion). It’s just that I can hear the kids outside as I type this, and I want to open my office window and yell back at them, “JUST WAIT UNTIL YOUR 30s!! THEN YOU’LL ALL HAVE SOMETHING TO SCREAM ABOUT!!! GAHHHHH!”
Oh, but the 5 p.m. outburst is nothing compared to the ice cream truck ruckus. That’s when all hell breaks loose, and I’m usually one of the kids screaming. “ICE CREAM! YAY, IT’S THE ICE CREAM TRUCK!!!”
Haha! Okay, I’m putting away the all-caps and exclamation marks (for a minute).
So, the Smokeluxe palette. Right now, I have mixed feelings about it. I like how easy to blend the colors are and the shimmery finish (shimmery, but not frosty), but I wish they translated better in pics.
The camera seems to really dull down the shine quite a bit; I think the shadows look much more shimmery in real life.
Hmm… And the more I look at these MAC Veluxe Pearlfusions, the more they remind me of Milani’s Runway Eyes.
Hope you had a good hump day and a great night. Did you do anything fun? Any quick trips to Sephora or anything like that?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
