Breakfast is brunch on the weekend, isn't it? A chance for something more taxing than the usual weekday smoothie or overnight oats. There's nothing I enjoy more than a long, lazy brunch, full to the brim with fried eggs, or bircher muesli (oats, grated apple, maple syrup, and apple juice left overnight), or a fancy cereal made with barley or spelt flakes, pumpkin seeds and blackberries, or smashed avocado on absolutely anything. Especially toast.
Enter Lorac's I Love Brunch Eyeshadow Palette ($44). The 16-shade set includes colors like Avocado Toast, Eggs Benny, Blueberry Scone, Bloody Mary, Mimosa, Pancakes, and, if you're that friend who shows up to brunch demanding gluten-free, Lorac has got you covered with a Gluten-Free shade (a shimmery off-white).
Eyeshadow palettes are great for contouring and shading, but after a few weeks of use you'll tend to find that half of the colours have been used almost daily and the other half remain virtually untouched. Not so with this beauty, because suddenly, we seem to be eschewing minimalist nudes in favor of vibrant hues swept liberally across our lids.
Statement shadows are fun, and even more so when they're affiliated with the ubiquitous avocado. So mainstream is the green fruit that you can't go on Instagram, to brunch, or even over to your friend's house without seeing it in all its glory. The mainstream hue of the moment? Yes, and yum.
