What every girl needs:

Friday, February 29, 2008

I’m pretty sure I *need* a lip gloss with a dirty name, or a eye liner, or something. Seriously – who doesn’t want to feel a little giddy and dirty whenever they freshen up? Some ideas below.The obvious, over-advertised ones: NARS the Multiple in Orgasm, practically anything from the Playboy site (think: Hef’s Favourite Lip Gloss in Sex Kitten, or a Pickup Liner in Wanna See My Tan Lines?, or a Mood Lipgloss – which claims to work in a way similar to O-Glow, which is another suggestive name, lol! – which comes in only two shades – In the Mood and Not In the Mood)

The obvious, but still fairly indie ones: theBalm’s Plump your Pucker in Squeeze My Lemons. MAC Tinted Lipglass in shades like Prrr and Nymphette, or one of their lipsticks in Shag, Please Me, Soft Lust... And the dirty-product-names ruler, NARS, has shades like Striptease and Triple X as well – they’re just not as advertised as the cult product Orgasm. Which almost makes them seem a little more risqué…

Just a thought. :)

e.l.f. glosses and glaze (reviews here). They’re very pigmented for the price, and have amazing shine – I just can’t stand the smell!!

The first is the plumping lip glaze, in plum pout. The second and third are the Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF 15 glosses, in Malt Shake and Candlelight. (The latter being my favourite colour of gloss EVER, it looks amazing on me, but smells, as I mentioned, so I never wear it.)

FB’s (Massive) Closet Cleanout

As you surely know by now, I adore a great buy – the boots I wore today, for instance, I got for $40 (original $130), and my jeans were ten!

FB is cleaning her closet to get rid of a) her debt, and b) her junk. We all know I adore her blog, so click on over and check out some of her stuff :)

Hurry!

Monday, February 25, 2008

Why are you hurrying? To pick up some Beauty Rush glosses, obviously!!
(get it? That was a pun. Rush…hurry…no? I really need to sleep.)

I bought my first two Beauty Rush glosses at La Senza (the retailer for them in Canada) last May, I just hadn’t found time to review them until now! The tube and applicator are standard, with an angled tip and no sharp edges. The price is what really can’t be beat– 2 for $10 or 2 for $12! (It depends on the store, for some reason…some have them on a better permanent deal than others.) 3 for $15 on the Victoria’s Secret website.
I’m not loving most of the smells, but the one that I got was Passion Fruit Pop, I believe. It’s a nice pink colour, as you can see, with a bit of sparkle (all the coloured glosses have glitter*). I love how it stays on forever — I apply once in the morning and I’m moisturized and glossy until lunch. It’s a bit heavy and fairly sticky, but the staying power makes up for it.
The other was the minty lip shine, pictured above. It’s a clear peppermint gloss, also very shiny, but instead of having glitter and being thick, this one is smooth. Because the peppermint tingles a bit at first, feels very fresh, and smells great! In addition, it makes my lips a little redder, as peppermint encourages circulation, so it’s easy to wear this one alone. You can get it here on the VS site, or in any La Senza or Victoria’s Secret store.

And here are the two tubes – this is a tiny bit too dark, but a blend between this pink and the pink on the VS site is closer to the actual shade. But if you can’t mentally blend shades? My photo’s closer to the correct colour! ^^I hope you love them as much as I do – there’s always a tube of mint in my purse!

*EDIT: not any more! VS has released a new bunch of these glosses, without the gritty glitter! (yes!!) And, yes, I said gritty. It doesn’t look gritty, though, which is great.

Last Resort

Sunday, February 24, 2008

My grandmother has resorted to bitchy remarks across the table.

The table full of family friends and relatives.

Which is why I’m here, doing BellaSugar and FabSugar Oscar polls instead of eating. (note: I made a two-layered chocolate cake with light chocolate icing; it was boring and won’t be made again.) It’s days like this that make me wonder why I’m trying to get healthy again.
