tarteemphaMeg here! Lonely, Bear Flag red wine (seriously the label is so cool, brought it to a Christmas party yesterday and got compliments and it’s $9, tastes good too) nights are over. Survived another Christmas! Actually, I had Christmas with Fred and Roxy and Rox’s husband their wonderful friend Robyn, so all was great!

I got a text from my sister that said “Thank-God, you’re in LA, guess what went down at dinner, CALL ME!” See, I don’t get stressed out and temporarily lose my mind (OK, like half the time but whatever) without good reason. The holiday’s just amplify the lunacy. So big cheer we survived Holiday 2011! I hope most of you actually enjoyed it and that my crazy is rare!

What do I enjoy? Warm weather. I’m not one of those “it’s so hot” people. I actually miss East Coast humidity. I like coming out of a restaurant at midnight and not needing a jacket. That’s something a lot of people don’t know about Los Angeles, even in the summer, you need something at night to wear to cover-up. Once the sun goes down it’s just chilly.

I have limp hair in any climate so I’m not a frizz phobe. The only downside to humidity? Runny make-up. South Beach in three days,  there is a “sick” potential, I’m packing water-proof eye products.

Tarte SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liner makes this job easy! I know we sent a lot out in points packages to try so I’m curious to hear if you love this as much as I do! I have in the shade “Bronze.” It’s a beautiful color, has a little shimmer to it, sophisticated shimmer, not “club kid.”

The pencil glides on easily and depending on how I angle it, I can get a thin line for lower lashes or thicken it up on top for a thicker, smolder look. It’s a great combination of “smudgeable” but has serious staying power. In LA weather, it hasn’t budged once. We’re in our winter with zero humidity all of the time so that’s not a huge challenge. By the end of the week, I’ll be hopping around Ocean Drive so I’ll have to give you an update on how we did!

Ladies, let me know! Any new beauty goodies under the tree from Santa? Have any of you tried Tarte’s SmolderEYES waterproof liner? What did you think?
