The Good Stuff: Hush

My good friend Sophia is visiting from NYC this weekend and while getting ready this evening I finally had the chance to try her eye shadow that I've been coveting for as long as I've known her. Whether she is going to work or going out, Soph always has a little something on her eyes; very subtle in the day, a little more daring at night. Back in Brooklyn when we worked together, she wore this colour that was a bit shimmery, but almost exactly her skin tone. It was perfect for day and I wanted to find something like that for myself; however, Sophia is much paler than I am [read: white] so of course I didn't think her colour would suit me even though she kept telling me it would.

Skip forward about 6 years to Toronto, this weekend. I finally tried a bit of Sophia's MAC cream colour shadow in Hush and just like she promised, it was perfect! Somehow it looked just a little shimmery but almost exactly my skin tone. We're going to the nearest MAC counter tomorrow to get me some!

oh now you've made me I have BIG motivation for visiting.

sophia and makeup though -- truly -- I got the tarte cheek gel because of how gorgeous she looked--and when I commented on her gorgeous skin she freely said "oh my gosh, it's just..." it made me (1) happy to get something as good for my face and (2) kind of wish I had a sister or mother like sophia because there's something so open and supportive about the "oh my gosh, just..." that she always gives.

she is like a sister, isn't she? the sister that got me hooked on looking purty with makeup and took me out on the town when i first moved to nyc.

um, you needed motivation to visit? our winters are super-cold; if that isn't motivation for you, i don't know what is!
