Smoke circles + current makeup loves

Black and gray, cold and dark like my heart.

Just kidding. Maybe.

Since it’s still too warm to wear true fall clothes (but dropping down to 84 this Saturday, which is basically a cold front in Houston), I’m doing my “summer to fall transition” (lame) with darker makeup.

Clockwise: MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Lust, Revlon Matte Balm in Sultry, Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, OPI In the Cable Car-Pool Lane

This skinfinish requires a light hand because of the large flecks of red glitter, but is a perfect highlight and/or blush for evening looks. The Revlon Matte Balm in Sultry is a pretty, creamy, pigmented addition to any neutral eye, and looks great against warmer skin tones, such as my Hispanic-ass skin.

I received this sample version of the new Urban Decay Perversion mascara in a recent Ipsy bag, and though I prefer a wand with plastic bristles, this mascara is great at thickening the lash line. However, my stubborn straight lashes fall within minutes, and I’ve noticed it flaking off near the end of a work day. Not cool, UD.

Yaaayyy.
