Why, yes. The silky smooth texture and all-day wear time (both on my lash and water lines) of Make Up For Ever’s new $18 Aqua Eyes in Gypsy are rocking my hot pink argyle socks off, but that’s not what I love most about this limited edition liner.
The fresh brewed coffee color of this rich matte brown makes it neutral enough to work with the cool and warm colors in my shadow stash, and I think that’s pretty sweet. Greens, blues, golds, bronzes, beiges and even purples — Gypsy digs ‘em all — and it even works well as a base for smokey eye looks with black and/or gray.

While it may not win the award for Flashiest Color on the Block, I love Gypsy’s flexibility. It’s a real workhorse shade that I can see myself working into my everyday makeup routine.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora, Make Up For Ever boutiques and online

Now where’d I put my rain boots?
Oh, winter! Just when I thought you took an early hiatus, you send over these gray rain clouds to torment me?
This is kind of random, but did you happen to catch The Voice last night? I didn’t really watch it much last season, but I’m getting into it now. Those blind auditions put an interesting twist on the whole process, don’t you think? They really spotlight the people with a lot of training and experience.
