LORAC PRO Powder Cheek Stain in Rosy Glow
I call ‘em “The One Swipers,” the five new, awesomely pigmented LORAC PRO Powder Cheek Stains I mentioned yesterday but didn’t really describe, because they rarely have to be swiped twice. One swipe with one of these on my blush brush delivers natural-looking, flushed cheeks.
The $20 powder blushes, which just landed on LORAC counters, are also surprisingly easy to blend, considering how much pigment they pack, and last a whopping eight hours on me.
The only thing I’d add? Dilute, dilute, dilute — since these blushes lay down so much color. Wipe or tap your brush to remove the excess powder before applying.
With these, if you feel like your cheeks still look a little too bright even after diluting, try applying them with a fan brush instead. Fan brushes aren’t afraid of high pigment products and excel at laying down sheer layers of color.

“Hell on Wheels” — the TV show and Tabs
You ever watch AMC’s Hell on Wheels? It’s one of my new favorite shows (I can’t believe it stars Common!)…and a phrase that very accurately describes Tabs when he’s zipping around the house.
Aww, Tabs. We’ve been doing a lot of play therapy lately (something I learned from watching My Cat From Hell on Animal Planet), 15 minutes in the morning, again in the afternoon and then once more at night before his gravy, and I’m noticing a big improvement in his mood. He’s been much more affectionate throughout the day.
