pot of gold

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Woo Hoo! 
This has always been a favorite holiday of mine- mom would make boiled dinner of deliciousness, plus the city of Boston goes nuts for the parade! Of course, my favorite accessory for this especially Irish holiday is a feathery green headband that sparkles and moves while you talk...

But, if you want a slightly less in-your-face way of showing good ol' St. Patrick some love (and I do mean slighlty) I would suggest my second favorite- Lush Emotional Brilliance in Fantasy!

(I seriously cannot believe I forgot to feature this in my all-that-glitters post this summer!)

The Emotional Brilliance pigments can be worn interchangeably as eye, lip, or face makeup... but I'd suggest wearing Fantasy as an eyeliner or shadow! I don't know how it'd look elsewhere, but it's my favorite eye-makeup-stuff (I'm super articulate, geeze). 

The little brush applicator means I can actually use it pretty well, something I'm overly proud of! It's also great for BC sporting events, as our colors are maroon and gold. Fitting, no? 

I hope your St. Patrick's day is filled with green, gold (from Lush or at the end of a rainbow!), and luck. If you're feeling that last option, head over to my last post and enter the giveaway there!


  1. I love it! I'd totally wear this as a liner! Happy St. Patty's Day :)
