5 Rose Gold-Inspired Beauties

My favorite metal is rose gold.  There's something about it that's elegant, warm, and eye-catching to me.  It's actually a color that doesn't quite seem to be readily produced into makeup, actually--I think it's the metallic finish.

Jealousy Wakes with Blue Look

My eyes have been really dry lately, so under normal circumstances, I wouldn't create a look and post it (just because the surface of my lids makes working with powder products a big pain!), but how could I not do something to commemorate this day?

Here's a look I did test-driving NARS' new eyeshadow base (got a sample of it with a recent Sephora order) and new Urban Decay eyeshadows.  Plus, even though I still don't feel like Lazy Day is a must-have (and I really thought it was going to be higher on the...

Look: Going Green with Greengrease

You know I had to dig into the new MAC products... at least to get going... for a look! Happy Monday!

P.S. -- Santal looks a little pinker on me today than it does usually, because I still had a bit of a CoverGirl lip stain lingering when I put it on!
