Every single picture I’ve taken so far today has ended up looking more or less like this…
America’s Next Lloyd Christmas Model?
I know, right? (It’s been a rough day.) Tyra and Ms. J would probably slap the ombre highlights off me if they found out I was still posting spacey pictures of myself on the Internet and not smiling with my eyes.
More photographic evidence…
Lost in the Louvre (but having a great brow day!) circa 2005
Speaking of spacey looks, have you seen the new NARS Nail Polish in Space Odyssey ($17) yet? The Hubble Space Telescope took this shot of it on my paw…
Space Odyssey and the new NARS Larger than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Via Crispi ($23), which I’m wearing in these pics on my lids, rocket onto NARS counters and narscosmetics.com next week in the tiny two-piece Silver Odyssey collection.
Created to celebrate next week’s big Fashion’s Night Out, both limited edition products come equipped with so much silver shimmer that the crew aboard the International Space Station reports that they’re visible from space.
Alright…that was corny, but it was probably better than what I was gonna say (“I feel like they make my eyes and nails shine like stars.”).
The NARS Silver Odyssey Collection
- Space Odyssey Nail Polish — Two coats of this interstellar silver deliver fully opaque coverage loaded with silver micro-glitter. The only problem? — it takes a really, really long time to dry. We’re talking three hours, at least. MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+
- Via Crispi Eyeliner — Some silver liners, especially ones containing a lot of white, can appear stark against my tan skin. Not Via Crispi though. I think the gray within it makes it wearable by a wider range of women (it’s more of a platinum than a silvery white). Like the other Larger Than Life Eyeliners, it feels smooth, doesn’t skip, and stays put from dawn till dusk. In other news, I think NARS should rename the product, “Viva Crispi Creme.” I’m just sayin’. MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A+
The next time I wear Via Crispi, I think I’m going to try a cat eye, lining my lids with it first, and then using a black liquid liner along my lash line… Might look kinda cute with hot pink on my cheeks and gloss.
NARS fans, if you’ve been scanning the heavens for a sassy silver with serious shine, look for the Silver Odyssey collection when it takes off next week.
NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner
Ever since NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Bourbon Street ($23) stayed on my water line through a nervous breakdown in San Francisco traffic a few weeks ago, I’ve been meaning to swatch the entire cadre of nine colors.
And here they are (just in case you’re contemplating a color or two or nine).
