Filed under “Conversations I Have With My Pan of NARS DOLCE VITA Blush”:
ME: We have to talk.
NARS DOLCE VITA: OK. About what?
ME: Our relationship.
NARS DOLCE VITA: Alright, that was ominous… Should I sit down?
ME: If you want.
NARS DOLCE VITA: Are you breaking up with me? Is this a breakup?
ME: Oh, gosh, no! I still think we should see each other. It’s just… I dunno. I need more…
NARS DOLCE VITA: Space?
ME: No! Excitement. I was going to say “excitement.”
NARS DOLCE VITA: So what — are you a swinger now? You want to start seeing other blushes?
ME: No. I mean, I want to stay together, but it’s been 12 years. I just think we should…re-evaluate our status. Maybe switch to something more fluid? Like an open relationship?
NARS DOLCE VITA: Oh, I get it. Open. OK, just don’t tell me about your one night stands.
ME: Not even the one I’m having right now with the new NARS One Night Stand cheek palette?
NARS DOLCE VITA: Wait — what? Are you? Is he that limited edition holiday palette?
ME: Yes. Six blushes total, and three of them are new.
NARS DOLCE VITA: Oh, great.
ME: I actually think you two would get along.
NARS DOLCE VITA: Right! So, tell me about him.
ME: Well, the new ones are shimmery alabaster Devotee Highlighting Blush, bright pink Mistinguette Blush and fleshy pink Goulue. You already know the others — golden brown Laguna Bronzer, golden peach Orgasm and sheer peach Deep Throat.
NARS DOLCE VITA: Do you…love this palette?
ME: I don’t know. I mean, I probably would if all of its shades were new. I do really like the highlighting blush. It reminds me of NARS Albatross, only more pinkish beige? If I could have it in a single…
NARS DOLCE VITA: OK, stop. Fine, I’m willing to try. If this means that much to you, we can try sharing, but I’m not making any promises.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and sephora.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A-
With Halloween costumes, as in life, you gotta be flexible.
The plan was for Tabs to wear his Princess Leia headpiece this year, but he wasn’t having any of it when I tried to put it on him this morning.
Observe the claws…
Divas, ya know? You can’t live with them, can’t live without ‘em.
Eventually, he decided to revisit one of his classic couture Halloween costumes, the evil Shark Cat…
While I am currently dressed up as an exhausted pet assistant.
Have you seen any cool costumes yet?
