In recent beauty news, I had something of a heart attack/pigs can't fly moment when I saw the following ad in the December issue of Belgian Elle.
I have a couple of updates for you ladies. The first being that i searched myself mad for Chanceuxj's email and other information. I couldn't find it and realized that I really need her to email me. So Chanceuxj, if you're reading this, please send me an email.
Secondly, I have so many updates and such slow internet that it takes forever to upload my images. I'll have updates tomorrow. I promise. As for now, I still cannot stop raving about MUFE's Full Cover concealor. An hour and a half session of Bharathanatyam in the morning and another hour in the evening and it's still doing a great job. Anyway, more beauty updates coming your way tomorrow.
So after reading the entries, I have to say there was one that truly stuck out to me. Not to revel in her shame but Chanceuxj's entry about the insect in the lipgloss was pretty embarassing and so she wins the flat iron. Here's her entry:
My favorite products are NYC retro red lipstick, Nars mata hari, and Bobbi Brown's peony.
I love retro red because it's cheap, but also the perfect bright retro red. I like to matte the color so it doesn't look like the traditional red, but something a little funky and retro. I like to think of a French movie siren.
I like mata hari because it makes my complexion glow, same with peony. I was really surprised at how well peony works.
My most embarrassing beauty moment was when I was wearing Bobbi Brown's lipgloss which is notoriously sticky. Being that it was summer there were a lot of insect creatures in the air. Apparently during my travels a fruit fly got stuck to my lip and because my full lips were so numb from gloss I couldn't feel it. So there I am some time later talking to a guy with a voluptuous bodied and curvaceous fruit fly stuck to my lip.
Usually, I consider concealors for the under-eyes something of a fool's gold. They look good on me for an instant but crease terribly and end up disappearing within an hour. For some odd reason, I decided to give the Full Cover concealor a try and I'm glad I did.
So I've finally landed here in India and I'm getting over my jet lag (take this with a grain of salt). I have a couple of posts coming up about an ad I saw for a tablet that supposedly makes dark circles disappear. I'm also going to check out the local make-up scene here. Should be interesting, I think. Let me know if you have any ideas while I'm here.
