Eons ago in chemistry lab, I learned the hard way (don’t touch fire!) that the hottest part of a flame burns blue.
Wouldn’t you know it? — the same holds true for the Clarins Ultramarine Eye Pencil ($23, new for spring 2009).
Ultramarine’s dark, shimmery sapphire blue put me into a trance. It applies with lots of pigment, gliding along the skin and depositing a rich blue line with barely any tugging at the skin.
It’s not waterproof, but it wears well along the lash line. On me it starts to smudge a little after six hours.
It even works great layered beneath powder eyeshadows. I tried pairing it with a mix of the violet, teal and pink shades from the Clarins Nature Temptations Palette for a psychedelic duo chrome effect that flashed from pink to green to teal to blue.

Ultramarine’s not inexpensive for a liner, but I think the color and durability make it worth the price.

Remember how I was looking for new workout music last week? You guys left me some great suggestions.
Here’s one of the tunes I came across… What do you think? It starts off kinda slow but picks up after about a minute (LOL! It’s 10 minutes long!).
Speaking of dancing, I’ve got hip hop class tonight. What are you up to?
