I'm stuck in a string of gold sparkle eye looks because that is what I'm currently expected to wear to work.  I hope you don't mind.  It feels constricting, despite my love for gold eyes.  I guess I'm a rebel.  If you are wondering, I work for a famous makeup store that shall remain nameless here.

It's bronzey and gold really because Urban Decay Baked eyeshadow has so much orange color to it.  Or copper?  Should I say copper?  Honestly, sometimes I get confused when the colors are bordering on one other.  Metallic!  That's safe to say.  :)

Please pardon my messy, pulled back hair.  I was rushing around, as I often do.

Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge 8

I like the LG powder, but I think it's reading too pink in my pictures.  I should probably save it only for obviously too yellow foundations, to pink them up.

The MUFE Aqua Rouge lipstick has a very odd texture.  It's sticky, tacky, almost gummy.  Then it becomes dry and still sticky somehow.  I didn't use the gloss component, though, until later on in the day, and that definitely provided more comfort during wear.  I will say that despite it feeling uncomfortable and bunched up, it always looked perfect when I checked in the mirror, expecting disaster.  What are your thoughts on it, if you've tried it?  I love long wearing lip colors, but I do want them to be more comfortable and have less of a noticeable feeling on my lips.

Also, what do you think of Nars Orgasm blush on me?  I like it.  I've just never been wow-ed by it.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Stay tuned for more gold and glittery looks to come.   :)
