You know how dance studios usually have huge mirrors on the walls, right? Well, sometimes I hate that.
Last night I went to dance class for the first time in two weeks because I haven’t been feeling very skinny in my skinny jeans. I’m on a renewed mission to get my fitness on, but it was mortifying to watch. Note to self: the six step? That sh*t is hard!
Then again, watching stuff jigging from all angles really motivates one to lay off the brownies.
At least the mirrors come in handy when I want to check my makeup. As I was gasping for air between counts, I kept noticing the waterproof Benefit Bad Gal liner ($20) I was wearing.
New to the Benefit family, Bad Gal Waterproof Liner’s a smokey black pencil that comes with a sponge tip for smudging.
In the past, I had trubs getting Waterproof’s famous predecessor, Bad Gal Eye Pencil, to stay put. I used it a few times and got it all over the place, but its heir works way better.
It applies just as smooth and dark but stays on like Donkey Kong (not migrating up on the lid either).
Before class last night, I lined my upper lash line with Bad Gal Waterproof and softened the line by running the sponge tip lightly over the edges.
I think it looks pretty and natural, and the color stays put through a sweaty workout.

By the end of class, the faintest touch of liner had started to settle beneath my eyes, but seeing how sweat was pouring out of my head like the Bellagio fountain, that’s probably not bad.
So you think you can dance?
Okay, does anybody else out there happen to love cheesy dance flicks? You know, the ones where the main character has to boom-boom-kak his or her way against all odds to achieve their dance dreams?
Last weekend I watched the dance movie Honey starring Jessica Alba. I saw it in the theater a few years ago but didn’t realize how awesomely great the soundtrack is until now. I tried to find it on iTunes this morning, but crappity crap crap! — they only have half of the soundtrack available. Boo!
Erick Sermon’s React is probably my favorite song from the movie. Whoever decided to put the sock puppets and random sheep at the bar in the video is my new hero, LOL!
I’m off to grab some lunch from the French bakery across the street. After work I might pop by the beauty store to peep OPI’s new Fairytale Bride colors. Have you seem ‘em yet? I think they look pretty.
