It’s all about the cats and makeup (the C&M).
Tabs actually wanted to tackle the pics for this afternoon’s post, and who am I to argue with Tabs? He’s a world-renowned plus-size kitty supermodel, actor and entrepreneur, and I’m just a makeup-obsessed girl with a cat…
…and strong cat lady tendencies.
And a deep abiding love for beauty bargains and cat eyes, like the kind you can do with the new $3 NYC New York Color Metallic Eyeliners in Leopard Print and Serpentine Purple.
At this very moment, both of these liners and the rest of the NYC New York Color Fashion Predator Collection are running wild in drugstores like feral cats!
Did you just picture a gang of feral cats running around inside a drugstore? Because I just did.
The limited edition release features nail polishes and makeup inspired by predatory animals, with colors like purple, green and brown.
The two shiny liquid liners Tabs is modeling here today make for a fun twist on traditional black cat eyes. Colorful golden brown Leopard Print and amethyst Serpentine Purple have a metallic finish that draws attention to your lids without taking you down the glitter route.
Perfect for a budget-friendly night on the town.
Like my cat’s haunches, the included brush is on the thicker side, so I like to swipe the liquid on the back of my hand first. Then, I use my trusty Sonia Kashuk Bent Liner Brush to pick up the product from there, and draw thin lines along the base of my upper lashes.
After giving that a minute to dry, I repeat the process one or two more times to build up the color.
As long as I keep my paws off my lids (and remember to not rub my eyes), both of these liners will last all day long. If I forget, though, and rub, the color flakes and falls away.
These kinda remind me of getting emergency, last-minute party clothes from Forever 21 (which I haven’t done in a looong time). You know, like those sparkly, $10, low-cut tops that fall apart after the third wash, but they’re inexpensive and fun while they last?
That’s what I think of these Metallic Eyeliners.
PRICE: $3 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at drugstores

In case you were looking for something to liquefy your brain…
I’m still not completely over Friday Night Lights… It was such a great show, and I miss the characters so much. I keep wondering what they’ve been up to, like they’re real people. (Did Tim Riggins ever finish building his house?? I wonder how Jason’s doing in New York.)
I guess that’s what happens when you watch 73 episodes of a show in less than three weeks…
I’ve been trying to fill the void with a show called Revenge. I like to stream it to my Kindle when I’m running on the treadmill.
It’s no Friday Night Lights, but it has its moments. It’s about this young woman who’s out to get revenge against the wealthy family that framed her father for a crime he didn’t commit.
It’s big time soapy and easy to digest, but at least once or twice an episode I shout out, “OH, NO THEY DIDN’T!”
What have you been watching these days? Anything good?
(Guess what? The zombies are back on Sunday. )
