You know, it’s funny. A lot of people don’t know this, but M. Night made a sequel to The Sixth Sense.
Yes, it was called The Seventh Sense, and it actually went straight to video, but don’t let that fool you — it’s surprisingly good.
It stars Bruce Willis, back again as the helper/mentor character, and that same little boy, except now the boy’s an aspiring 20-something makeup artist.
In one revealing scene at a dark Nordstrom counter in a locked shopping center after regular store hours, the young man, his face as white as a sheet, turns to Bruce Willis and says, “I see glittery Chanel quads…”
Yeah…it doesn’t really work as well the second time around, but maybe that’s why the movie went straight to video.
Still, between you and me, I prefer the young man’s preternatural power in the sequel. Forget the ability to see dead people. I’d rather see Chanel.
It could be a little freaky, though, especially when I slip into one of my spells, because that’s when I have the premonitions, like the one I had the first time I saw the new $58 Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Intuition.
Sometimes I even speak in tongues…
“Blurzzzzing murrrphhh gabbabababa boo…” which, roughly translated, means “The sheer and glittery cool-toned pink, gold, taupe and brown powder eyeshadows in this quad awaken eyes like an upbeat Hall & Oates song.”
“Fluurgig arrrghh shloooperbuer…” which is something else I might say, means “Your lids will glow like an apparition. Never mind the minor fallout from the tiny flecks of silver glitter.”
I have a hunch that if you like the new Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow in Abstraction and soft, sheer lids that glow, you may also like the Intuition quad…even though the price is frightening.

MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B (pretty, but I really have to layer these shadows to achieve a bold look)
Movies, movies, everywhere
While Tabs worked on the very successful MAC Catfall campaign last weekend, I watched Daniel Craig in Skyfall (did anyone else feel like they were setting us up for a transition to a new Bond?? I really hope it wasn’t Daniel’s last one).
And at home, I’ve been working my router to the bone, streaming at least one Netflix movie a night for the past week.
I really liked The Rebound, a rom-com starring Catherine Zeta-Jones as a newly single mom who unexpectedly falls in love with a much younger man…
Great character development, and I just thought it was a very sweet story, so a big thumbs up there.
I also enjoyed Timer, another romantic comedy, but this one with a sci-fi twist.
It takes place in an alternate present where dating is made more complicated by a popular service, whereby people pay to have these “timers” implanted on their wrists that count down, somewhat miraculously, to the moment they happen to meet their soulmate. So you know exactly when you’ll find your true love.
It’s an interesting premise for a movie and pretty well done. The story follows two sisters, both of them with timers. There’s a few holes in the plot — I mean, consider the premise — but if you like sci-fi, I think it’s worth a watch.
I’m always on the market for movie recommendations, so please let me know if you’ve seen anything lately you’ve liked. I’d love to hear about it.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Onward to the hump! I hope your Tuesday was all sorts of terrific.
