“He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed.” - Albert Einstein

I'm going to gag my practical inner voice for a moment and profess my love for Shu Uemura's (insanely impractical) latest lash collection, "inspired by the infinite wonders of nature". From the real skeleton leaves covered in gold...to the numerous shades of blue and undulating wave-like shape of their homage to the sea...to the frosted, "ice princess" edifices built from wire and crystals...there are a pair for each season...as Fall is my favorite it's probably unsurprising that the ones constructed from feathers in pleasingly autumnal shades inspire the deepest feelings of longing within me.

However, at this point, my p.i.v. breaks free from his restraints and points out that...

  1. Two things which should never be in close proximity to each other...at least for someone who's a complete klutz...are glue and eyeballs.
  2. Following on from that...even if I could summon the required level of manual dexterity and general un-klutziness...I am a woman who manages (at most) powder and lip gloss. A lone tube of mascara has been lurking, unused, in my bathroom cabinet for about three years (I know, I know, I need to throw it out)...this calibre of eye embellishment is clearly beyond me.
  3. And finally...depressing though it may be...there are a limited number of times when one can leave the house with an eye full of feathers.
Of course, none of this common sense stops me marveling at their beauty...and daydreaming about how to silence that know-it-all little p.i.v. once and for all...

    I think people should leave the house with feathery eyes as often as the mood strikes them!
