No Sephora products in the widget today, I’m afraid – something about the site redesign is interfering with the links, so clicks just go to the homepage. (/sigh.) I love the aesthetic of the new Sephora site, but I’m just not sure how I feel about the functionality, you know? I miss seeing all of the shades listed in a column, with shade descriptions and names next to each swatch, and I’m not thrilled with the collapsed categories on brand pages.
But, well. Maybe all I need is a bit of time to get used to it, yeah?

Non-web-geeks and non-emails-subscribers: skip this post!
(Because it’s boring and won’t be relevant to you, not because I love you any less.)
Just wanted to note that (a) Google Friend Connect is still working on theNotice, and (b) I just realized that you can totally customize your feedburner account.
In regards to the latter: if you’re reading through an email subscription, please note that future emails will be coming from firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m not entirely sure how or why, but apparently emails used to go out from my seventh-grade personal email address, which is… weird and extremely uncomfortable. Anyhow; please update your address books accordingly!
For the former: I’m not entirely sure what happened, because GFC is not supposed to work on self-hosted WordPress blogs, but theNotice’s feed still seems to be working. It’s a good thing, though, so I’m just going to keep my head down and try not to ask too many questions. Just wanted to touch base with you guys, in case you were wondering why the widget hadn’t gone down!
That’s it for today – sorry for interrupting your beauty feed, and I’ll talk to you all soon with some exciting Spring launches ;)
A ramble/tutorial about hair loss, wigs, and faking it* here.
Plus, a few gifs (which were turned into PNGs on the She Said Beauty site) -
This last one’s relevant to all of our interests, because (let’s be honest), sparse lashes and brows aren’t just a problem for people on chemo drugs. A before and after with super-natural (supernatural!) brow penciling + black liner in the lash line itself, rather than just above or below it:
*”It” being lashes and brows, that is. Get your mind out of the gutter.
Dug this one out of the archives. I’m not sure what possessed me to put together an eighteen-product assortment of lip balms, lip balms, and more lip balms, but… well.
Let’s just say I don’t regret it in the least.
Anything catch your eye?
