Lovers of taupe, mauve and gray, let it be a Sonia holiday. The makeup maven’s keeping it cool this year with her new Prepping for the Party Lip & Eye Palette ($19.99), with its six powder shadows and six lip products in cool-toned shades.
I’m really digging the shadows, which pack enough shimmer and pigment to spare — in particular the shimmery grayish pan at the far right of the first row, because it reminds me of Pistol from Urban Decay Naked2, and the shimmery purplish mauve at the far left of the second row, which looks to me like a slightly lighter version of MAC’s Satin Taupe.

I like the colors Sonia selected here and appreciate having them all in one place, but I’d be even happier if the cream products lived on a different tier/level. After using the palette a few times, the lippies already have a light dusting of eyeshadow.
The Kingdom of Palladia
I lucked out while channel surfing a couple of weeks ago and discovered a music network called Palladia. They play recordings of live performances, ala MTV Unplugged, and occasional music videos.
I don’t know if it’s new, but it’s new to me, and I’m officially obsessed with it!
First Pop-up Video returns and now this?? SCORE! I’ve been “watching” so much music on TV lately that my butt is starting to wear out the couch.
I’ve caught live performances by Kelly Clarkson (girlfriend’s pipes are no joke!), Carrie Underwood (I love her “I’m an angry woman, and I seek revenge!” songs), Train (amazing!) and Phoneix (good, but not as fluid as I expected).
If you like pop music, I think it’s worth checking out.
My favorite part of the Train performance…
And with that, I say farewell, Friday. Bring on the weekend!
