I really nailed this photo, obviously.
First of all, let me say how excited I am for Brooklyn Dolls’ 3rd Annual Holiday Party on December 11th. If you were lucky enough to be invited, congratulations. I can’t wait to sit on Santa’s lap and tell him what I want this year. Oh wait, C and I already did that at Kings Plaza a couple weeks ago. Well, I will do it again at the party. And here’s a hint at what I want, Santa: it rhymes with shmimonds. And shmur. And shmakeup.
Speaking of shmakeup, I have to tout this new blush that I recently fell in love with. It’s from Clarins’ Barocco Holiday Colour Collection and is simply called Face Palette. The powder, a neutral beige base with a pinkish peachy pattern pressed atop of it, is quite beautiful, almost to the point where you don’t want to ruin it. But for the love of blogging, dear readers, I swirled my brush in and applied. And presto! The sheer pink flush that resulted on my cheeks was actually super flattering. Really subtle and yet striking enough that even my grandma noticed and commented on how nice it was. Well then. I should also add that the case itself is a work of art (see above) and pretty heavy, almost like you are carrying around a little chunk of gold. The price tag- $55- is definitely steep, but this is definitely a compact that will last a very long time and that you’ll want to keep long after the powder is gone. Or maybe that’s just me.
Oh, and after using the powder several times, I am happy to report the pink pattern has maintained its shape and not blended away. Nice work, Clarins. Consider yourselves invited to the holiday party now.
