Oh, it hurts, doctor! Right here in my heart (and my makeup bag). It’s like a yearning, aching hunger for a trio of silky smooth shadows in natural shades…
Yes, Dr. Hauschka, I’ll take one of the new $39.95 Eyeshadow Trios and call you in the morning. It’s one of five pieces from your limited edition spring 2013 collection, you say?
Should I take it with food? Oh, I see. It doesn’t matter.
You say that you designed the shimmery beige, rosy pink and chocolate trio to flatter every eye color and fortified the formula with botanicals like black tea to baby the delicate skin around the eyes?
Fascinating… And you used a smooth base of silk and talc powder?
[THE NEXT DAY]
Hi, doctor! I just wanted you to know that I followed your directions. I gave the new $39.95 edition Eyeshadow Trio a try, and I loved the soft texture. The shadows feel like flower petals on my skin, but gosh, I really had to build them up in layers to see the colors…
They’re probably the sheerest shadows I’ve tried this spring, and um…I had a lot of fallout.
I bet the shades would flatter many different skin tones, and I love how soft the powders feel, but I’m not completely sold on the pigments. I think they might be a little too subtle for me.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Dr. Hauschka counters and also online

Happy Thursday, and some Whole Foods noms
I don’t know what it is about Thursdays, but I just love ‘em. Maybe it’s because of the anticipation of Friday and the weekend ahead? It just might be my favorite day of the week.
Kinda random, but last night I wasn’t in the mood to cook so I stopped by Whole Foods to pick up some noms for dinner from their deli and salad bar. While I was there, I found a couple of things that I really liked. First, the garlic-y kale saladâ€¦
I’m not really a kale person, either (it never seems quite right when I make it), and this was delicious. Full of flavor, and not too chewy.
I also tried some phenomenal faux meat buffalo “chicken” wings. I’ve eaten a lot of mock meat, and this was probably the best faux chicken experience I’ve ever had.
Not too sure how healthy it is after all the breading and buffalo sauce, but day-um, Gina! Just thinking about those pseudo wings is making me drool a little. Okay, a lot.
