Beauty Meets Decor: Stila's Smudge Crayon in Midnight Blue

On Sunday, I attended The Makeup Show blogger preview here in NYC and couldn't believe the amount of goodies we were all gifted. I'm talking amazing products from brands like Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics to Make Up For Ever. Crazy, I know. I also had the chance to do some shopping at the show on Monday (at a 20 - 40% discount), and one of my best purchases was the Stila smudge crayon in midnight blue ($22).

I've been thinking of mixing up my traditional black/brown eyeliner routine for something with a pop of color. And I have to say this navy waterproof eye primer/shadow/liner is the perfect option. I like that it really is an understated, sophisticated kind of blue, without any shimmer and all that jazz. And to top it off, it goes on so smooth, which is key for me when it comes to liners. I just love it.
And in terms of decor, how much do you love the navy used for the accent wall, throw pillows and lampshade in this room? It gives the space a warm feel.
