Smart People

Tuesday, September 23, 2008

I have another title to add to the list of films I could watch a billion times and still love. SJP was amazing, as was Ellen Paige, and unlike many reviewers, I loved the lead.

Smart People hit too close to home for comfort, but is an amazing film that I could honestly watch monthly.

The rest of the list?

  • The Italian Job
  • Transformers (I know, I know… I’m a terrible person.)
  • The Prestige
  • The Dark Knight
  • …may update this later, because now I’m out of computer time!! Sorry posting has been so irregular, lovelies, but I’ve been just swamped. Continue checking daily, though, because I promise it’ll get better within a day or two!

All sorts of fabulous.

This time, because I’m swamped with work and tired as hell, you are spared of my bashing of ugly dresses and makeup that would make children scream.

Instead, I leave you with this. This is gorgeous.

Melanie, the Asian-beauty-loving sweetheart behind Best Face Forward, finally received her key items!! I sent her an 8 bracelet, a keychain (the initials are for her bf’s dogs’ names) and two magnets as extras (the other 8 on the keyboard, plus a “home” key) I forgot to take pictures of the magnets, though x.xAlso, I sent a choker for swap. I put on a little lobster claw, so it comes off like a charm!! :P

To myself.

You are pathetic and amazing. But mostly you are just pathetic.

Use every day, even in the dark.

Estee Lauder Blush All Day in PlumThis lovely colour isn’t actually very plum – I see it as more of a medium-toned dusty pink. It looks wonderful dusted lightly on the apples of my cheeks, but can be layered into the contour to shape and sculpt as it colours. It works wonderfully with my fair Asian skintone, and yet I can see this blush working on anyone with skin ranging from very fair to medium-toned! It’s got a bit of sparkle, but only a tiny bit, and the glitter is tiny – not a disco-ball effect, but a glowing one.

I received this in a swap on MUA, so mine is GWP size. This should last fairly long, though – it’s become my almost-daily blusher, but I’ve barely put a dent in it. The colour payoff is just below average, which is actually nice – that means it can be applied very lightly with ease, and builds up well. Despite this, though, the blusher is very ‘solid’ – there is no crumbling or dust flying when I swipe it, so your don’t loose any product.

This is more expensive than I’d generally put out for a beauty product – $24.50 in the US, and probably therefore $30 in Canada – but if I can’t find this online for cheaper when I run out, I would actually rebuy at this price. Yes, folks… it is that good.
