FOTD: Glowing Rose Gold Lids With Black Winged Liner for Anniversary Date Night, Laura Mercier Rose Glow Caviar Sticks, and an Excellent, Affordable Hair Oil by Hask

I brought a whole bag of makeup with me to Hawaii last week, and I did not crack it open once…

I know! Pandemic-era K-Dawg continues to amuse me. ? Packing that bag wasn’t for nothin’, though, because I used it yesterday to put on some makeup. We went out to dinner last night to celebrate our wedding anniversary (15 years!), and, yes, I actually painted my face. Then I had to snap a few shots because if ya don’t take a pic (or two) with your cat, then it officially didn’t happen.

FYI, in case you were wondering what 15 years of marriage is like, in a nutshell…it feels like lugging around your husband’s pain-in-the-butt XXL bottle of gluten-free tamari in your Kate Spade purse when you go out to eat sushi (fun fact: soy sauce isn’t gluten-free), but then having so much fun once you get to the restaurant, HA HA HA!

The Warriors Roll from Sushi Tri restaurant in Novato: real crab and avocado topped with spicy mayo, seared salmon, tobiko, crispy fried onion and scallions with unagi sauce
The Pretty Lady Roll with fresh salmon and avocado topped with fresh scallop, ikura, lemon slices and special sauce

Anyway, MAKEUP! I HAZ IT! This look uses a mix of the products from the makeup bag I packed to go on my trip (so, lots of tried-and-true Chanel faves because I’m on a Chanel kick) and some new cream shadow sticks from the recently launched Laura Mercier Rose Glow collection, which, side note, IS GORGEOUS!

The shadows have shimmer, but it’s a low-level glow, not a high-shine metallic frosty finish, and it’s dreamy! The shadows blend like butter, too, so my eye makeup came together in a flash.

All in all, the look took about 20 minutes from start to finish…

I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I’ll definitely wear it again soon.

Before my Hawaii trip fades away to a distant memory, I’ve gotta give a shout-out to these travel-friendly hair oils by Hask I found at Ulta. I originally brought the Argan Oil Repairing Shine and Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Shine Oil vials with me because they were super compact and just $2.99 each, but I ended up LOVING them.

They’re great if you’re looking for an oil to apply to freshly washed and conditioned hair and want mega moisture without weight or greasy strands.

FYI, the oils do contain silicones, so keep that in mind if you’re particular about silicone-containing hair care products.

I spent a lot of time last week at the beach and the pool, and my hair would have looked and felt rough if it hadn’t been for these bad gals. Good stuff, and so, so affordable!

Hard to believe that we’re already in full-on summer, isn’t it? Back-to-school is just around the corner, and I’ve already noticed the beach items and swim suits at stores are starting to be replaced by notebooks, pencils, highlighters and book bags. It’s been so long since I’ve lived with the rhythm of a school year, and it’s just sinking in right now that since Connor will be starting kindergarten in the fall, this will be my schedule for the next few years.

Before you go, take a second to let me know what the weather’s like on your end. It’s been comfortable and relatively cool here in the North Bay Area…for now. It’s a dreamy upper 70s, which won’t last but a moment, I know, but I’m enjoying it while I can.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

    Happy Sweet Fifteen, K-Dawg and El Hub! You are the best waifu, bringing the FULL size bottle of San-J Tamari to the sushi rescue. Looked very masarap/mouth breaking.
    I love the look; great tones of rose (that swatch of Rosie posing is also perfect). I’ve been leaning towards these tones, too, and picked up a Jones Road Sparkle Wash in Cool Pink that is very dupey to the Laura Mercier Wild Rose.
    Well, you know what the weather is like here ‘coz you just came from here!
    Have a safe rest of the summer there!

      Hi! It was so beautiful when we were there. The only sorta rough day was our last Saturday; we went up to North Shore and it was very windy and rainy, yikes! Other than that the weather was so perfect. You’re so lucky to live there!

      Thank you for letting me know your thoughts about Jones Road and the Saie sunscreen. 🙂 Excited to try the sunscreen soon! (I have one by MyChelle that’s on deck to try first.) You know you’ve crossed a bridge when sunscreen excites you, ha ha ha.

        The place where you stayed in Aina Haina looked gorgeous! Just based on your pics I’ve been recommending Aina Haina to people and I have no idea where you stayed lol. I do like the windward side and hubby and I pinch ourselves daily because we get to live here (even if it is crazy Waiks).
        *squeeI saw that Glow by Ramon did an spf lip balm review! “Don’t stop till you get enough!”

          We stayed close to Aina Haina — Hawaii Kai! My in-laws live there. You know what’s neat to me? How there’s always new stuff to discover on the island. I went to Portlock Beach for the first time and loved it!

      Happy 28 years to you, that’s amazing! The time goes by fast, but it also doesn’t, you know what I mean? LOL! Do you still have your wedding dress? I need to dig mine out one of these days.

      Oh, and I’ll try to get Rosie to do more modeling. She’s kinda camera shy!

      Thank you, Vita! I hope you get the chance to try the new sticks. I’m wearing another color today (the coppery one, Forbidden Rose), and it’s fantastic.

    You know it is real love when you carry a soy sauce bottle in your purse for your special one. I hope you have many more happy years of marriage.

    And girl, you’re glowing I love how you look. About using makeup you’re right pandemic times are making our makeup routines “interesting”

      I love how you put “interesting” in quotes. LOL! Me from 2014 would never believe that we’d all pretty much given up at one point in 2020.

      I hope that one day you’ll find someone to carry soy sauce for in your purse!

    That sushi is making me hungry, it’s been a while since I’ve been out to get it! Maybe I need to do that this weekend…

    Wow 15 years is amazing! I hope we’re still going just as strong in 15 years time, we have yet to get to 1 year LOL ?But somehow I think I got a keeper.

    Here is Aus our weather is freezing, very jealous of your summer ? It still hadn’t got to 1C at 9am this morning…

      Aww, newlyweds are the cutest! You know, the time goes by so fast. You’ll blink and next thing you know you’ll be searching for traditional 15-year anniversary gifts (it’s crystal, by the way).

    The weather this year in my area has been odd – rainy and almost cool for both May and June, and part of July. This is unprecedented in my experience (far too many years to mention). It’s almost as if the Pacific Northwest and Canada got our usually horrible hot weather, and we got something like theirs (but nowhere near as cool). I’m enjoying it, because anything is better than 95 – 110 degree heat day after day after day. Hot weather usually starts here in early May and often doesn’t end until mid or late October, with only occasional rainy days that are lower temperature, but not cool by any stretch of the imagination.

    It has actually been quite cool (not cold) and rainy here in Germany. Strong rains though, with some flooding around the country sadly.

    You look absolutely amazing on your anniversary date night!

    Happy anniversary Karen! Your makeup is beautiful and your sushi looks most yummy! I had sushi last night from Whole Foods but it was just OK-I need to have the “real” stuff 😉
    Our temps here in Dallas (TX) have been below normal the past few weeks-not by much, but we will take even a couple of degrees cooler! It was even bearable enough 2 nights ago to dine outside – that’s unheard of this time of year in Texas.
    My husband’s bday is tomorrow so we’re going to a brewery then to a nice restaurant tomorrow night – it’ll be fun. And for the next month, I’ll only be 6 years older than he is – LOL

      Hi Karen,

      I know the Whole Foods sushi situation all too well, LOL! When I’m desperate I go there for a fix. It scratches the itch just fine, but it’s still not the same.

      Have fun at the brewery and dinner tomorrow. Wear some fancy makeup if you can!
