Running Late For Work LOTD

I was running so late for work this morning, so I only had time to throw on a really quick face. I wanted to try another of my Darling Girl taupe-colored eyeshadow samples, so I chose Taupe A La Mode as a single-color wash. I also wanted to use one of my new Morgana Cryptoria lipsticks, but I also wanted to use my Darling Girl Taupe Secret Holo-Gloss, so I decided to wear both.

One of the girls at work absolutely oooohed and aaaahed over the Taupe A La Mode. It's described as "Greyed brown aka taupe with silvery blue flash and blue sparkles." It has the most gorgeous blue duochrome sheen, and I just fell in love with it. I don't wear blue well, but I've found when it's blended with brown or taupe, it's really pretty on me. I love this eyeshadow color!

  1. Holy CRAP I need that color!
    I also want Jeweled Taupe from DG too... SOOO many wants!!!

    1. I have Jewelled Taupe, and I keep giving samples of it away so people can enjoy its awesomeness. I need to get another jar of it! Curious also gives Jewelled Taupe a run for its money -- I highly recommend it!

  2. ***DERP***
    And you look GORGEOUS by the way.
    I'm leaving comments in doubles lately hahaha!

  3. Oh wow! I would be ooh-ing and aah-ing over Taupe a la Mode, too! This is just too gorgeous, definitely not what I see when I think of a "running late" look.

  4. You look gorgeous as always and Taupe a la Mode looks amazeballs on you!
