stila waterproof smudge stick eyeliner is the best

I know I've expressed this sentiment before, but I added two colors to my collection since then and I am in L-U-V.

So far I own Mint Julep, Canary, and Turquoise. I am in a wedding next Saturday and my bridesmaid dress is mint (eeeee!!) so I will def be rocking the Mint Julep then. Tho Alpine would be tight as well...

canary, mint julep, turquoise

Anyway, I went to Sephora recently and I tried out a bunch of different bright eyeliners on the back of my hand and none of them popped the way the Stila smudge sticks do. I've read some online reviews and a lot of people complain that the stick doesn't twist up, but it should and it does. It takes a lot of twisting the first time, but eventually it comes out. I'd compare it to how you have to crank a disposable camera like crazy to take the first picture, but if you're patient it works.

I was never much of a Stila fan. Not because I didn't like their product, but because it all seemed a little tame. I've heard it's made the same way or in the same place as NARS, which I LOVE but is a bit too $$$. I might have to change my tune about Stila though because my smudge stick obsession led me to this amazingness...

...which I'm sure is more aesthetically pleasing than it is practical. But like, look at it.

I loathe festival culture and fashion, but these wildfox tops from their "coachella" line are so good.

I'm in a funk. I don't feel well. I haven't been taking care of myself. I was doing well and Harris' death really derailed me. Anytime something tragic happens, I find it hard to dust myself off and care enough to take care of myself. It's a harsh reminder of how fragile life is, something I am constantly fighting to forget. I feel like I'm stuck in mud. Sometimes writing helps, so here I am. I went to the Sarah Silverman and Friends tribute to Harris Wittels. I cried a lot. It felt cathartic in a way funerals never feel. I prefer to celebrate how someone lived rather than dwell on their death, so I am glad Eloy and I were able to be there and hear everyone's jokes and stories about Harris. It was a really special show, like most shows at Largo. I will never forget the sound of everyone in the theater whistling "You Are My Sunshine" while Todd Glass conducted us, assuring us "Harris is laughing" through his tears.

Enough of that before I cry. In a way I feel weird for taking his death so hard, but it hit really close to home.

Today I am trying to enjoy the friends I have while we are all still here, and I am trying to let go of fear. I know this was filmed forever ago, but I just came across it and it made me smile. This is my favorite White Lung song with two of my favorite people.

Take care of each other.
Be nice.
I love you.
Good night.
