It’s been a Project Runway kind of day…
No, nothing big like running into Heidi at Sephora or kicking it with Tim Gunn at the DSW (I wish!).
Just a couple of small but cool brushes with my favorite reality TV show. The first one I noticed this morning, when the Tivo, a normally evil form of artificial intelligence hell bent on recording all of the shows I NEVER watch, actually did something useful for a change. It recorded the entire season four of Project Runway, from start to finish, without me having to program it.
SIDE NOTE: Didn’t you just love Sweetpea? I wish she would have made it to the end just for being hella cool.
And the second one happened this afternoon as I futzed with Charming Cockatoo’s Gaze ($9), one of the four new quads in the L’Oreal Colors Take Flight collection, a collaboration with Project Runway (I know!).
The Colors Take Flight Collection…
- A limited edition 20-piece release (available now at drugstores and also online) split into four sub-collections — Audacious Amazon (bright eyes and a fuchsia lip), Charming Cockatoo (pink and blue eyes and a burgundy lip), Watchful Owl (metallic eyes and a red lip) and Sultry Raven (smokey eyes and nude lips).
- Each of the sub collections includes an eyeshadow quad ($9 each), a lipstick ($7 each), a blush ($10 each) and two nail polishes ($5 each).
- The release is slowly trickling into drugstores like CVS and Walgreens, but if you’re interested and don’t want to hunt, the entire collection is already available online at Ulta.com.
I like this particular quad, but it’s a little heavy on fallout and light on pigment. The colors are totally my style (bright but not blinding), and I love the connection to Project Runway (of course!), but I wouldn’t say I’m head over heels.
AVAILABILITY: Coming soon to drugstores like CVS/Pharmacy; available now online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B
Oh, guess what! The models will be wearing the entire collection in Thursday night’s new episode, so tune in if you’d like a sneak peak.
I wonder who’s gonna win this season… I know whom I want to win (GO TEAM ANYA!).
I get the feeling that Joshua might be on his way home. I’m a little tired of his be-dazzling stuff, and he hasn’t always been the nicest person.
Are you watching the show this season? Who are you pulling for?
