Seriously?  So many vacuum cleaners in the background of my pictures?!  I am a dork.  This is like the vacuum cleaner(s) FOTD.

What you are seeing on my eye here is the orange from the Illamasqua Paranormal palette, topped with Tarte Charmer (True Blood), Tarte The Light (TB) on the inner corner, UD Deep End in the crease, Stila Smudge Stick Lionfish e/l pencil, Nars Barrow Street e/l pencil (waterline) and some dark brown e/s I absolutely cannot remember on the outer corner!

On my face, I'm wearing Dr. Jart + Renewalist BB Cream, Tarte AC Blushing Bride, and Stila After Glow Vivid Violet lip color.

This eye is with Tarina Tarantino's eyeshadow duo Elektron/Amber, UD Lucky e/l pencil, and Stila Kitten glitter liner (I can't remember what is under that - might just be Lucky again).

For the rest, I'm wearing Koh Gen Do Aqua PK-0, Nars Boys Don't Cry, Guerlain Terracotta Sun in the City, and Tarte's AC lipstick in Timeless (summer LE).

Say "hello" to Stila Terracotta!  Haaaaaay.  I was in the mood for red eyeshadow last Friday.

I used Stila Terrocotta, of course, Sephora Moonshadow in White Gold (from the "In the Night" palette) on the inner corner and also patted over the center of the lid, and UD Woodstock pencil on the lowers with Terracotta smudged in.  My eyeshadow creased all not good and funny-like that day, which started the process of my breaking up with the CK One eye base.  Boo!  Hiss!  So sad!  I really liked the brightening it provided.

For the rest of my face, I wore Guerlain Lingerie de Peau cream compact in Beige Pale 01, Tarte AC Peaceful + Too Faced Smurf Illuminating Powder, and Inglot Sleeks lip gloss in 65 (blotted).

What's wrong with creepy gray lip gloss, you ask?  "Why, nothing," I say!  I like it!

Truth be told, I liked it even more over top of Hourglass' Flush lip stain, which sadly I do not have any pictures of.  This is Armani Flash Lacquer 701 all by its creepy gray-green-blue self.

And for the eyes:  I used UD Perversion e/l pencil with Blackout e/s smudged over top, then UD Evidence e/s on the lid, Deep End into the crease, Vanilla for the inner corner, Stila Smudge Stick in Lionfish on the lowers with UD Deeper smudged in, Sephora Flashy e/l Flashy Brown for the waterline, and the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder Highlight 01 on my brow bone as well as for my cheek highlight!  So, the shadows were pretty much all from the UD 15th Anniversary palette.

On my face, I'm wearing Dr. Brandt Matte BB Cream in Light-Medium (which looked too dark on its own) topped with Dolce & Gabanna The Foundation Perfect Finish Powder Foundation Ivory 50.  I used Dior Aurora 01 bronzer as a light contour and Nars Boys Don't Cry for my blush.

I like this last one a lot.  Go me!  Let me know what you think of all this nonsense.  :)


  1. I feel all smart like because I was able to identify the Armani gloss at first glance. Looks lovely on you! I'm also completely smitten with the look of the red/ terracotta shadow around your eyes. The contrast is magic!

    1. You ARE all smart like!! That is awesome of you! :D Thank you!

      Holy cow. Just noticed my neck is all red/scratched and crazy looking in the last look. LOL

  2. beautiful love this! I didn't know the lingerie de peau was available in an '01' shade - I should check it out because i love the texture but not usually the colours!

    1. Thank you! I didn't either, until recently. A really wonderful person on MUA MUB sent me a tester to try. I'm not sure how easy it is to find this shade in the "wild", though! Good luck!

  3. Lovely!!! I especially loved the red and blue eyes :D
    Now I'm intrigued by that greyish lipgloss... I have one from Dior spring 2011, maybe I'll catch it up and see if I need GA ;)

    1. Thank you! I really need to do more red eyes. And I'd forgotten about the Dior gray gloss! :) My favorite is probably UD Perversion from the lip junkies. It's more purple gray, but it's long lasting and somehow creepy cool.


Please be kind. I'm happy to learn and grow, but it's also my face we're talking about! Also, no shamelessly promoting your blog or site here, please. Thank you!
