Here’s the face I made multiple times while watching last night’s episode of The Walking Dead…
And here’s the face I made today a few hours after applying Tom Ford Plum Absolute For Eyes ($35)…
Notice the similarities. They aren’t identical, but in both pics I appear fussy and discombobulated.
When my mood turned sour this afternoon, it was due to Tom’s annoyingly expensive, limited edition gel liner (new for holiday 2012) completely vanishing from my upper lash lines about five hours after I applied it.
And on top of the disappearing act it pulled on me, it wasn’t the easiest gel liner in the world to work with. The surprisingly dry, patchy formula just isn’t anywhere near as smooth as I expected it to be — not after the crazy good Tom Ford pieces I’ve come across lately.
Bummer… With that gorgeous matte plum color going for it, I had pretty high hopes, but I guess you can’t win ’em all, not even with Tom.

MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: C- (I love the color, but I don’t love the price, dry texture or uninspiring wear time.)
I’ve got the blues…the paint chip blues!
The paint swatches I picked up at Home Depot yesterday have been sitting on my desk all day long, and I’ve been hoping that by staring at them long enough, I’ll figure out which color I should use to paint my dining room. Buuuuut, that hasn’t worked out. I still have no idea…
I’m afraid I’m going to do what I usually do when it comes time to make a decision about home decorating, which is FREAK THE EFF OUT! And then nothing.
That’s usually what happens… I get overwhelmed by all the choices and end up not making any decision at all.
I’m pretty sure I’m over-thinking it (wouldn’t be the first time for that, LOL!)… I just have to remind myself that walls can be repainted.
But oh! Then I think of another possible color, like a blue that would go with my dream china, the Chirp pattern by Lennox…
Wait — did I just type the words, “dream china”? That’s gotta be a first for me, LOL!
So how was your Monday? Peachy keen, I hope. What was the best thing that happened to you today?
