As summer winds down, I am still clinging to my the bright summery colors… So I finally played with the L’Oreal HiP Duo (Matte) in Perky. The colors are a mid-tone green (similar to MAC Wondergrass) and slate blue (maybe charcoal). You know the Matte and I do not get along as a lid color, but I heart green, so had to purchase it!!
The green side is not that dark as it appears to be. I used HiP Color Rich Cream Crayon in Authentic (Green) as base. The color is forest green. I like the Color Rich Cream Crayons because they do not budge at all!!
Products used are:
- Revlon Custom Creations in Deep (#4)
- MAC Natural MSF in Medium Deep
- MAC Matte Gel
- HiP Color Rich Cream Crayon in Authentic (Green)
- HiP Duo – Perky e/s (Both sides)
- MAC Patina e/s
- Lorac Starry-Eyed Baked Eye Shadow Trio in Star Style – The Lightest Shade
- L’Oreal HiP Color Truth Cream Eyeliner – Black
- Barry M Kohl Pencil – Black
- Tarte lights, camera, lashes! mascara – Black
- Revlon ColorStay Mineral Finishing Powder – Sunkiss
- NYX Barbie l/g
I think the result is cool, but I am going to try Delft and Pharoah Paint Pots to see if Perky (green side) will have a different look.
Well, I found some new music that also has me feeling perky because even though with all that craptasticness that is out there, I am glad to know there is good music still being made.
My new favorite British singer is Gary Go. He is a melange of ColdPlay, Sting and U2. 🙂 One reviewer called him a one-man ColdPlay. His sound is broody and moody, voice mellow…Lyrically he is solid. The song that sucked me in is ” Wonderful”:
And all your ammunition’s gone
Run out of fuel to carry on
You don’t know what you wanna do
Cause what you want does not want you
If what you want does not want you
And you’ve got no pull to pull you through
Say “I am”
Say “I am”
Say “I am wonderful”
Just amazing lyrics.
I love the quietness of “Black and White Days.” The chorus reflects “You color my black and white days. /Color my black and white days. /You do. You color my black and white days. /Color my black and white days.”
Gary also takes on Lady Gaga. He rearranges “Just Dance” from the high-octane dance frenzy to a reflective, haunting ballad. I am looking forward to him having a wonderful career.

If you like good music, Gary Go is a must have!!
What is perking you up these days?
