Love it! So pretty and I got compliments about it right away! Now, I'm thinking I might order another one in a different color ;)
Thanks to Steph for another fab piece of jewelry. Go check out her site! She's been unveiling some gorgeous new items and she's also hosting a fantastic giveaway!

One fall palette that is my current favorite is the Givenchy Prismissime Eyeshadow palette in Poetique Blue. Sigh why do I heart blue/purple shadows so much?and why am I such a sucker for packaging?
Sadly the plastic case is prone to smudge-y prints. The inside mirror also has a flower motif in one of the corners.
Pretty, shimmery shadows-went on very smooth and with decent pigmentation. I was afraid they would all look the same but they were distinguishable from one another (swatches tk).
EOTD (after a long day in warmish weather)
Sorry it looks like all my previous EOTDs but I swear it's with the
Poetique Blue palette:
I really liked this palette and I am tempted to order the brown version as well. mwahaha. I also picked up the phenomen'eye mascara in lavender grey(not pictured)-if I squint I think I might see the lavender part but it's pretty much just grey. It's subtler than black mascara so I don't know if it does much for me. I also need to refresh my memory on how to use the spikey ball applicator so I can see if it can give me more oomph.
Today, I went to Bloomies after work and I saw the new fall items from Nars and Dior. To my surprise and to my wallet's chagrin, I ended up liking a few items from Nars (to be revealed in next post).
Another surprise was that the Dior Jazz Club collection didn't wow me. There were pretty purple plummy colors but eh, I wasn't feeling it. I only picked up a purple eyeliner since it had a similar brush applicator to one of my fave Japanese eyeliners.
Here's a swatch pic for the new lipsticks (top row and 2nd row swatch on left, Night butterfly quint(2nd row; except the middle blk color), plum diorliner (3rd row left) and lip glosses (3rd row):

Here were my nails for the event, courtesy of some konad stamping. It took a few tries to get it all kind of straight:
Anyways, we met up for dinner at Pylos for some awesome Greek food. There were 13 of us: Pink, Lynn, Mel, Tammy, Helen, Patti, Desi, Vickie, Lily, Mayaari, Kendall, Prey and me. Here's the food (my bf commented that it seemed like I have more food pics than people, lol):
Moussaka and calamari
We also had fried eggplant and zucchini with tzatziki dip and meatballs
Now on some of the entrees:
I (and Lynn) had the shrimp and scallop with noodles in ouzo sauce
Lily and Prey the lamb shank
Vickie had the poached salmon
Some actual pics with people:
Me and Pink enjoying the pita and hummus
Super cute pic of Lynn and Mel
Instead of the Beauty Bar, our next destination was a karaoke bar in ktown. It was pretty cheap in comparison to the one I've been to in Queens, although this place didn't have drinks included.
Pink channeling Britney!
Here's the end of the night group shot:
