Illamasqua Milf (and French Macarons!)

I tried to deny myself this lemming for a long time, but eventually caved. So glad I did!

Illamasqua Milf



I think it's one of the few mints that works with my skintone! The other mint I was interested in trying was DR1968, but I try not to let myself have HTF lemmings. In any case, this Illamasqua is terrific!

I've read that a good franken recipe for Milf it is half OPI Banana Bandana and half American Apparel Office.

And, not to start a trend of posting about baking here, but I am too excited to keep my mouth shut. I had success with making macarons this weekend!

Green tea macarons w/ white chocolate ganache filling.







I'm so thrilled they have macaron feet :) I used the following recipe/tutorial: Demystifing Macarons by Tartelette.

  1. Forget the polish or the eyshadow..I want those macaroons!!! They are absolutely beautiful and I'm sure very tasty as well.

    I'm not too familiar with baking terms, but what are 'macaroon feet'? Sounds interesting!

  3. @Dye-A-Graham: Hehe, thanks! The "feet" are the sides of the macaron where it's risen, so the cookie is not just a dome :)

    @Lindsay: Yay! Glad you dropped by and thanks for following hehe :)
