dior+jazz+club+limited+edition+eye+palette Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette Hits All The Right Notes

If you have eyes, I insist that you purchase Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette as soon as said eyes finish reading this review.

The limited edition, all-in-one palette features: cream to powder black liner, brow shaping powder, four eyeshadows and a top coat. The major selling point of this palette (which just so happens to have the chicest packaging eva) is the topcoat. In the tray, it deceivingly looks like shimmering snow, but it applies super sheer.

When you layer it on top of shadow, it goes all Emeril on you. BAM…in an instant, it kicks the color up a notch by imparting a sparkly, iridescence. Use the topcoat with any of the palette’s shadows – or in tandem with the any of the shadows in your makeup arsenal. I swear – it gives old products new life.

Dior Jazz Club Eye Palette and your lids should make beautiful music together. Don’t fight fate. Pick it up now at Nordstom.

Yesterday, even though I was just going over my friend’s house to watch football, I decided to rock a sapphire smoky eye.

spoiled+pretty+saphire+smoky+eye Ive Got The Blues: Sapphire Smoky Eye

Here’s the recipe:

MAC Dsquared² Greasepaint Stick in B

MAC Trend F/W ’09 Eye Shadow Compact in Tone: Grey (I used the bottom two shadows)

Hourglass Cosmetics Superficial Mascara in Carbon

* The shadow did crease after about 6 hours, so next time I’ll prime my lids with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.

Birthday Cat Eye

spoiled+pretty+cat+eye+3 Birthday Cat EyeI have been told my many a professional that my eyes were made for makeup. Not to sound cocky or anything, but I’m pretty sure that when God formed me in the womb, s/he said to her/himself, “Wow…when this girl grows up, she’s gonna rock a fierce cat eye.”

So to celebrate my third annual 29th birthday, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I dined at Tinto, one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia – and I sported this ferosh feline eye.

spoiled+pretty+cat+eye+2 Birthday Cat Eye

Here’s the recipe to replicate the look:

Apply Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to entire eye, lashline up to brow bone.

Using MAC 242 Shader Brush, apply Stila Kitten Smudge Pot on the lid – from lashline to crease.

Using MAC 217 Blending Brush, lightly apply Stila Kitten Eye Shadow to the lid – from lashline to brow bone.

Using MAC 266 Small Angle Brush, line the eye with Stila Black Smudge Pot, flicking at the edge.

Prime lashes with Lancome Oscillation Powerbooster. Before it dries, layer Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara on top.

Finally, dip MAC 210 Precise Eye Liner Brush into Stila Kitten Eye Shadow and apply to inner corner of the eye, in a sideways V.

And here’s a bonus – thanks to the products’ staying power, your eye makeup will have nine lives. Meow!

Iris pigmentation
Lid pigmentation
Hair growth outside the treatment area
Intraocular inflammation
Potential for contamination and infections
Absorption by soft contact lenses
