Mind mind keeps telling me nooooo …
Against my better judgement, here’s a pic of a face of the day with makeup from MAC’s Antiquitease Limited Edition Collection. El hub walked into the bathroom and announced oh-so-loudly that it was time to eat, and subsequently scared the bejeebus out of me:
I know, right?
I’m so glad that I finally dug into the Antiquitease Mineralize Eye Shadows ($16.50 each) because THEY RULE!
I haven’t felt this way about a MAC eye product since I discovered Fluidline! I love how the shadows are so sheer but still have just enough color punch. Plus, they build super easily and they look kinda space-agey cool with their weird domes and veins of color.
Here are a few less goofy pics from the Antiquitease “Gilty Kiss” look that I tried last night:
Everything I used was from MAC, except the blush and lip liner, which are from Rimmel.
I think I just might have a new addiction. I’m gonna have to grab every single pan of MES that comes out in the future. Yay for my makeup collection, boo for my wallet.
Are you a Mineralize Eye Shadow addict? What are your favorite combos?
A potential New Year’s resolution?
Have you heard the song by Wyclef called “Sweetest Girl?” It’s fantastic. It’s got a very upbeat sound, but at the same time if you *really listen* to the lyrics, it’s very sad. The disconnect between the happy music and sad words somehow makes the song work.
I heard it driving home, so of course the first thing I had to do when I got to my computer was watch the video on YouTube. In addition to the original video, I also found several acoustic versions done by regular folks with just a guitar! And wow, there are so many talented singers out there. Check out this version of “Sweetest Girl.” It’s pretty good:
I love to sing (back in the day I used to take lessons), but I’m usually too shy to sing in front of people. I think in 2008 I’m gonna learn how to play guitar, and perhaps someday work up the guts to do a version of this song on my own.
Are you already thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions? Watcha got so far?
