Awards I Have a Legitimate Chance of Actually Winning Someday…
- Craziest Cat Lady in Northern Marin County (in the 30-40 age division)
- Most Likely to Drop a Makeup or Beauty Product on Her Foot (Happens at least once a day. This morning I dropped my giant pan of Guerlain Terra Nerolia on my left foot. The pan was fine, but my foot is still throbbing.)
- Least Likely to Say “No” When Offered Ice Cream for Dessert (seriously)
I think I’d also have a shot at the “Best Dressed Landlocked Mermaid Award,” but only if I were wearing the new Guerlain Ecrin 2 Couleurs Eyeshadow Duo in 02 Two Stylish ($44).
All I have to say is “mermaid eyes!” This duo (one of eight new permanent collection duos bobbing up on Guerlain counters this month) sings a sea siren’s song with a silky semi-matte deep blue, and a softly shimmering metallic gray.
It’s glowy, gorgeous and guaranteed to make you weak in the knees (or your tail fin area) if you bold blue eye looks.
Just like the brown shade in the Two Spicy palette, both of these shadows are Dolce & Gabbana/Armani-caliber creamy; they practically melt on lids like butter on hot bread.
And gosh, that blue!
You know how some blues can be really hard to blend? Two Stylish buffs out so smoothly that it’s as if it yearns to blend. Gradients couldn’t be a whole lot easier to create, and there’s barely any fallout at all.
The shimmery, silvery gray is just as exceptional as the blue. Shiny, but not too shiny, and it doesn’t settle into my fine lines.
I think it’s beautiful on its own (or buffed on top of black liner), as well as layered on top of the blue, which is how I’m wearing it in these pics.
Worn with my trusty NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof base, Two Stylish stays put all day, no creasing or fading.
Babe, even if you don’t think of yourself as a blue eyeshadow gal, or if you’ve always felt that your skin tone was too warm for blue, at the very least, give this blue a swatch.
Or, try it on the next time you find yourself at a Guerlain counter, and let it work its mermaid magic on you.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Guerlain counters as part of the permanent collection, and coming soon to the world online

And being a part-time mermaid…
…I had another tuna fish sammie on sourdough for lunch.
FOR THE FOURTH TIME THIS WEEK!
You see, people can be very resistant to change when it comes to their tuna fish sandwiches. I’m a pretty adventurous eater (as long as I don’t have to cook it, LOL!), and it took me years to try a tuna melt, which I ended up really liking. Go figure.
I didn’t have a tuna melt today, though. Just a regular tuna sammie.
Mine are pretty straightforward. I drain the tuna, chop some onions (or use dried onion flakes when I’m extra lazy), add a little mayo, a squeeze of lemon, salt and pepper…
How about you? How do you make your tuna fish sandwiches?
