Anywho, this Penny Lane is a nude pink cream blush by NARS. The cream blush's consistency is a bit different than every other one I have tried. I love MAC's CCB's but they tend to be a bit greasier as well as Illamasqua cream blush. Penny lane is very soft and smooth but with a drier texture, not hard just almost silky. the color is a perfect pink nude. Why is it perfect? I will tell you.
- The color on your cheeks is a nude flushed color, very natural but gives you a glow from within color.
- The PERFECT color on my lips. It is a nude but with a slight pink undertone. Reminiscent of a softer more wearable Fleshpot by Mac. However, if your lips aren't well moisturized I would try this, it will define the dryness. A layer of lip balm solves that quickly.
- Eye base color or eyeshadow. I used this on my eyes today as well, gives a warm nude finish. Great for that monochromatic look that is so in right now!
Finished face with Penny Lane on cheeks, lips and eyes. Talk about multi-purpose! Very economical! Excuse the tiredness and half opened eyes... the 30 Day shred has been making it quite a feat to wake up in the morning! Shredders, I know you feel me!
Close up of the necklace. Okay, a little about this necklace. First of all, i am in love with it. I love huge jewelry. This bad boy looks luxurious and expensive. But guess what? Its not! Its from Madewell down here in Soho, NYC. it was $88. YES! Can you believe that. I love Madewell, it is J.Crew's little sister company which I also love!
My nails, painted with Essie's Lollipop, its a fun corally red. Very old school, very Mad Men. Love it!
Last last last thing... status update on the 30 day shred. Well I am now on day #5. It has been quite a time. This workout is INTENSE. What do you expect for a 20 minute workout. I personally love Jillian Michaels, I think she is hysterical. She has some amazing one liners she throws out during the 20 minutes, such as "These abs don't come for free", "The neck isn't invited to this party" and "I have 400 pound people that can do jumping jacks, SO CAN YOU!". Anyway, the first day was great and then the INTENSE pain and soreness came on. I pushed through it and I can finally say I am not in pain anymore. I am really looking forward to reaching level 2 on day 10 to see what is next. I can feel my body changing within these 5 days which is great. I will be sticking to this plan and I will be updating you along the way. A bunch of you on twitter have joined me in my 30 day shred adventure, I hope some more of you will too!
Well that is about it for today! Thoughts?
