  1. Reading and Wearing Make-Up #4

    Thursday, October 23, 2014

    I am a big fan of grand story arches in comic books that blur the lines between the comic mythos and history. Art influences life and life influences art and when you read or see something that walk in such fine themes, you better prepare for an amazing experience.
    And reading always has hidden surprises of art and life, waiting to be uncovered.

    "1602" by Neil Gaiman and Andy Kubert is a wondrous comics journey in England during the Elizabethan era, an era that finds the Empire stricken by unusual storms and rumours spreading about powerful, inhuman beings walking the land. Heroes like Nick Fury, Dr. Strange, the X-Men, Spider-Man and others, go back into dark and strange times to save the universe once more, from a sinister and intricate plot to destroy everything. Neil Gaiman is a writer of novels, comic books, films,but most people know him from his amazing work on DC Comics "Sandman"; but on "1602", Gaiman takes on the Marvel universe and his unique perspective and storytelling create a whirling and different adventure. Andy Kubert, the artist responsible for the illustration of this story, comes from a family with history in comics illustration and is well known for his work in DC Comics and Marvel Comics and he has taken on drawing Batman and Damian many times; I have a soft spot for his art and I am not hiding it. This is an epic story, that grows more and more interesting with every page you turn and the artwork couldn't be greater than this.

    And to look fabulous while reading "1602" I chose to wear the Dior Addict "Fluid Stick" in 995 Intrigue, which a deep purple lipstick but with a twist. The "Fluid Stick" is lipstick, that comes with a brush to give flawless application with a single sweep and the formula combines the high-impact colour of a classic lipstick with the shine of a gloss. It is not as long wearing as I thought, but a re-application between a little break from reading is totally okay.
