Easy Rider Rock and Roll Lives On

"You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I can’t understand what’s gone wrong with it." The quote from the 1969 movie Easy Rider sums it up in two sentences, sadly ringing true 4o years later.
I could watch this film 100 times, never growing tired of the fringe coats, the cool rides, the studs, the simplistic life, and the underlying, deep message. At least today, some cool remains. Make Up For Ever's studded rock and roll palettes, a sweet reminder. Make Up For Ever's limited edition from Holiday, Rock For Ever Eye Shadow Palette is the coolest thing I've seen in a while. Like hardcore, bad ass thank you Elvis, cool. The over sized compact has four funky shades, beige and black shimmer, silver iridescent and white shimmer. It comes adorned with gold and silver grommets, and black studs. Rock For Ever Eye Shadow Palette has the instant swagger factor, the popular kid with the cool shades. Make Up For Ever never skimps on pigment or quality, and gets an A+ for the smokey, rock and roll vibe. The black shadow has some serious flecks of diamonds and the white is a bright, blinding opalescent shade.

Rock For Ever Aqua Eyes are waterproof, mini eye liner pencils that come in black, charcoal gray, brown, gold, and silver. The colors are gorgeous, packed with pigment and the gold is 24K all the way. The liners are creamy, and glide on nice and easy. Perfectly portable in a studded, grommet, Rock For Ever tin. I'll take these anywhere. Pack 'em in a messenger bag, hop on a bike and go, where ever the road leads.
