What’s your sign? I’m a Cancer, a Moon Child, so I can’t resist pearls and moonstones (my birth-stones) or any cosmetics with “moon” in their names. That includes Sunday Riley’s Prismasilk Eye Color in Moon Dust.
When I was a small child, this Sesame Street segment scared me to tears. (Ironically, I ended up loving Margaret Mitchell’s Gone with the Wind so much as a teenager that I read it at least ten times over.)
Today I’m watching this clip in honor of Hurricane Sandy.
My latest post on Now Smell This is a review of Aroma M’s new beauty products, Camellia Hair Oil and Camellia Face Oil. You can read it here.
Hoping that all of us in the hurricane’s path will remain safe and sound.

Really, this isn’t going turn into a lipstick-only blog; I’ll get back to other topics soon! But just yesterday I noticed this page in the Barneys catalogue and I needed to know more about the “20 new shades” in Lipstick Queen’s Saints and Sinners lipstick collection. How did I almost miss this piece of news from one of my favorite cosmetics lines?
A few weeks ago I raved about L’Oréal’s new Colour Caresse lipstick in Rose Taffeta (you can see that post here). I liked this product so much that I went back to the drugstore aisle and ended up with a second shade: Cherry Tulle (179). It’s a red shade, slightly outside my rose/berry comfort zone, with another name inspired by fabric and fashion.
When I first looked at the cover Allure’s November 2012 issue, I laughed at the apparent contradiction between two headlines. The first reads, “Haven’t Slept In Forever? Cures For Dark Circles, Page 186.” Immediately below this, a second headline promises, “Makeup Artist All-Stars Reveal Their Best Tricks (#1: Get Naughty Black Eyes).”
So, which is it? Dark/black circles/eyes or not? Yes or no?
On second thought, I was bothered by that second line.
