Twilight Night Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner ($22) and Twilight Shimmer Nail Polish ($18) are two of the items that caught my eye from Bobbi Brown's Fall 2012 collection, Desert Twilight, while I was in the mall this weekend. I love coordinating colors and these two are a perfect pair!
Twilight Night gel liner is an interesting shade. In the container it appears to be a very dark, smoky amethyst with fine gold shimmer, but in certain lighting it looks more like gunmetal. Most surprising of all was when I wore it on my eyes it shifted into a smoky indigo shade, kind of like blackened denim.
In the macro photo above you can see the multiple shades of shimmer. When I look closely I can definitely see gold and blue, and what looks like it might be fuchsia. What actually shows up on the eye is just a subtle overall neutral sparkle.
Twilight nail polish in the bottle is a smoky raisin shade with shimmer. On the nails, in some lighting it looks like gunmetal and at other times a softly shimmery plum. Off hand it calls to mind Dior's Aztec Chocolate, although it's not really the same. Shades like this are great to transition into fall and are a nice departure from the corals and pinks I've been wearing for months. If anyone is interested in seeing color comparisons, please let me know in the comments and I'd be happy to do so!
The formula is thick and provides opaque coverage in just one coat, but I used two for evenness. I also used one coat of Poshe topcoat to make it glossier. I haven't worn this long enough to speak about wear-time, but will try to post an update once I've had it on for a few days.
In the photo above that was taken in the shade you can see that the shimmer is much less apparent. Twilight is the type of shade that really only comes to life in sunlight or under direct lighting indoors. The photo below was taken in cooler lighting indoors.

Miss Kitty updateIt's been a while since I've shared any photos of my fur-baby, Miss Kitty. She has been contentedly living a life of leisure but she despises the summer heat, what with all that fur! Thank goodness for air conditioning. We would all be miserable without it. My thoughts and sympathies are with the folks in the Eastern U.S. who are dealing with record heat and power outages, and with those who have been affected by the wildfires in the West.
I sleep all day while you are out working to earn money to feed my enormous appetite with the finest kibble, endless Fancy Feast, and deli meat treats. Keep it comin' lady!
And why, pray tell, are you disturbing my slumber? This had better be important.
Stop with your shenanigans woman, and get that suspicious-looking bottle away from me.
Perhaps if I look away for long enough she will get the message and leave.
