If there was an award for “Most Likely to Spill a Loose Eyeshadow All Over the Freaking Place,” I’d be a frontrunner to win it, for sure.
How many spills are we talking about here? According to my eighth-grade self, “2many2say4u.” LOL!
Oh, my poor counters, carpet and cat…
I don’t even get too worked up about it anymore. At one point I guess I just decided to embrace it as my destiny and accept the inevitability of making a mess whenever loose pigments or glitters are involved. Whenever it happens, I just chalk it up as inevitable, shrug my shoulders and say, “Oops. Oh, well.”
But that was until I met Caress of Mink, a Rouge Bunny Rouge Fire Drops Loose Glitter Pigment ($38).
One of seven shades, this shimmery loose taupe comes in a long, streamlined tube with a wand and a pointy sponge applicator tip. First time I saw it, the tip reminded me of applicators I’d seen before, and I remembered making a mess with those…
Luckily, beyond its similar appearance, I think this one performs much better than those.
But I don’t really know why. It must have something to do with the pigments, which seem a little stickier to me than most, so they adhere to my lids without any fallout, and exhibit very little fading throughout the day.
As for the wand itself? The thing just feels good in my hands.
Everything about Caress of Milk says user friendly to me, and I think it’s just as easy to use as RBR’s Long-Lasting Matte Eyeshadow in Sweet Dust Seriema.
For these pics, I applied it on my lids, crease and lower lash lines with the applicator, and then softened the edges with a domed eyeshadow brush.
Seriously, it’s nice when the makeup practically does all the work for you. 🙂

It’s Wednesday already? That can’t be right…
I wonder what it means to be constantly surprised by how fast time is flying. I do it every week. It seems like I was just counting down the seconds to The Hunger Games premiere.
Speaking of that, have you seen it yet? I’ve heard the next one comes out in November (
YES! SHOOT! I guess it’s next November, 2013).
I hope your hump day got off to a good start. So far, so good out here. I’ve crossed a couple things off my to-do list already, which feels nice. One of them involved a ton of perspiration and a Jillian Michaels DVD.
