|me getting my shot on.|
I don't know if you know, but it has been rather chilly in NYC so when I was offered a honey vodka shot to warm up, there was no way that I could refuse! Here we've got a honey-infused vodka with a cinnamon-sugar rim. The result? A smooth shot that goes down way too easy without being cloying.
And no, both of shots were not mine. I know how to share...
So one thing I really like about the museum (besides their awesome exhibitions) is their bar, ORALFIX. They have a really well thought-out bar menu, pairing spirits with traditional aphrodiasiacs like cinnamon, lavender, cardamom etc. I decided to go with a silver tequila with cinnamon and cardamom, which was absolutely delicious. The cardamom really stole the show as it lent a chai-like feel to the cocktail. If you ever get a chance to go, make sure to try it!
And as I promised here is a sneak peek of Boyfriend Stealer, from MAC Cosmetics Archie's Girls collection. Boyfriend Stealer happens to be from the Veronica collection. Now this pic is not exactly color correct, it looks berry-er than it really is. It is described as a "deep blackened plum" which is about as good a description as I could give. I will definitely feature it in a future post, because the color is interesting. Right off the bat, it is not a dupe for Cyber, Smoked Purple, Yung Rapunxel or Kate Moss 04, mainly because it is much more sheer, having a Cremesheen finish.
I wanted the lips to stand out so I paired them with matte nude eyes, defined cheeks and my staple, cat-eyed liner. Simple and effective, perfect for a Friday night.
