Happy New Year’s, everyone…

Monday, December 31, 2007

I’m spending it alone, having literally thrown myself out of a car to get away from a family party. I plan on lying on my floor and listening to In Our Bedroom After the War a few times. Possibly crying. Probably cleaning.

Today has been such a weird day.

Flats and envelopes

I bought my first pair of Keds at Brown’s on Thursday.They’re quite comfortable.

Also, the wallet mentioned here? the Cousins (well, one of them) bought it for me in burgundy for Christmas!!
So psyched. It’s gorgeous.

Free shipping on any MAC order. Now you can avoid the bitchy clerks and still get the products!

Valid through midnight on Jan 5th. And the best part? It’s only valid in Canada!!!

VS sale

Victoria’s Secret sale includes their beauty products – which are a steal, so get down there and hunt for something! They’ve got a bunch of Pout products at the sale prices, which the pout.co.uk store is out of already – this is definitely one of the last places you’ll be able to find Pout products, so stock up now. (eg: the lip plump gloss is only $14. Seriously.)

Other great finds include things like $16 Tarte cheek stain, or $18 for a set of three minis. $8 Too Faced lip injection gloss, $15 Vincent Longo concealer, $13 Longo lipsticks…oh, the list goes on.

In the hair department, all their Fekkai and Ojon products are on sale as well.

Shop the sale here.

Just Bitten

Saturday, December 22, 2007

Product: Revlon’s Just Bitten lip stain in Cherry Tart.

Price: $9 with a coupon out of FLARE a few months back.

Smell, taste, etc.: This product smells lightly of cherries, but it dissipates quickly. I haven’t tasted it, or anything along those lines, though… it is sticky until it begins to dry, which takes a second or two, but it tends to be completely dry in about half a minute, and lasts quite a while until it’s gone. I’ve been putting it on once in the morning and that’s it, as my lips look human after a few hours.*

Application: I dot on a glob of this on the middle of my lower lip and spread outwards with a slanted brush (an art one, it actually does a better job than my slanted brushes and my lip brush!) From there, I just take colour off the roller ball applicator with the brush and apply on my lips. Smoosh your top and bottom lips together to spread it, and line your lips with the slanted brush. (That way, you don’t end up with lipliner but no lip colour, as they’ll fade at the same rate)

The bottom line: This is a little too orange for me (I prefer true reds, or slightly blue-based reds, not orange-based reds), but aside from that, I quite like it! The vial (hee. Can I call it a vial? Tube? hm…) will last forever (and has an eighteen-months expiry date), and I’m confident that it will last me at least that long. I’ve used this every day since I bought it, even if it’s just a super-thin layer, and I love it. I don’t use it for super-colour or anything; it’s quite natural-looking when applied lightly.

See also: the BellaSugar post that convinced me this was a winner! (has photos.)

*I bought this because when I wake up, I have what I like to call corpse-lips for a few hours, and I didn’t want the hassle of a lipstick. Basically, my lips look like they belong on some old dead grandmother somewhere, not someone like me. The blood returns to them sometime during second or third block, and I look normal again. Which is, you know, nice… :P

Apologies for not posting much recently; life has been very hectic! I promise to get back into a true post per day ASAP!

But the important stuff: The Body Shop’s annual sale is online right now! (SCORE!). Unfortunately, us Canadians still have a while to wait (I hope it gets here. If it doesn’t, I’m going to be pissed.) Hit it while you can, because there are some amazing buys in there!!
