Oh, Dior … glow on with yer bad self! Your new 5-Colour Eyeshadow Palette in Crush Glow ($58) makes soft, shimmery summer looks that much easier to create.
One of seven items in the Addicted to Dior Summer 2010 collection (available next month), Crush Glow’s shadows radiate a gentle luminosity that totes reminds me of pearls.
It’s a break from the bold and frosty metallic finishes that have graced past Dior shimmers, but that doesn’t mean it’s a shadow snooze-fest. Dior may have turned down the dial (not all the way though) on the shimmer, but it’s still sure to make those lovely eyes sparkle.
Dior maintained a classic feel with Crush Glow by going with five traditional summer eyeshadow colors in gold, coral, pink, taupe and bronze-brown. No color boundaries are broken here, for sure, but I’m cool with that because of how wearable these neutrals are — think work gigs, dinners with the girls, date nights, or even weekend family shindigs (or hootenannies).
At $58, Crush Glow ain’t tight budget material, but its flexibility, soft and creamy texture (VERY blendable) and excellent, all-day wear time just may save this quint from The Land of Luxury Oblivion.
Six degrees of Metallica?
Last night El Hub and I explored the old part of downtown here in Novato looking for a place to grab a bite to eat. This area isn’t exactly a celebrity hot spot, yet we think we spotted Metallica front man James Hetfield walking (with a heavy metal swagger, of course) down the sidewalk in front of the restaurant where we had dinner!
El Hub: Hey, is that James Hetfield?!
Me: Uhhh, YES! It totally is! I recognize his tats!
El Hub: Wow… I mean WOW!
Me: Omigod, omigod, omigod! I should go chase him down… but I can’t run in these platforms, AARRRGGHHH!
LOL! Metallica hails from the Bay Area, so I suppose it wouldn’t be too big of a stretch to see a band member up here. He’s a little taller and skinnier than I remember from those old school Metallica vids.
Damn… I’m still kicking myself for not trying to get his autograph. Gah! I wish I’d worn tennies to dinner.
