Pixi Lid Last Shadow Pen - Graphite Glint

The chubby pencil makes putting eyeshadow simple. One swipe provides full coverage in one single squiggle.  The Graphite Glint is a soft gray and doesn't look anything like the color in the tube, which is much darker.The creamy eyeshadow leaves a soft sheen. The only thing I don't like is that I can't find a sharpener to use and the closest Target to me is 4 hours by train. I am just going to take a knife to the pencil and carve it out. Very classy, I know. Maybe I will use the sharpener as an excuse to visit Target and pick some more goodies.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil - Pomegranate

Having tried the Bite Beauty VIB Rouge Creme Lipstick, I became in love with the Bite Beauty brand and couldn't wait to try their other products. When I came across this lip pencil, I had to buy it [I didn't just buy one, I bought three...]. I love pommies! They are the absolute best [Okay, probably not, but leave me to my delusions].

The moisturizing lip color goes on smoothly and leaves lips soft and smooth. The long lasting matte lip pencil gave my lips a rich red color.  It looks like I have gorged myself on a crate of pommies [is it wrong that I want some pommies now?]. The pencil is enriched with food grade ingredients that is safe to eat, not that you should though [a color this beautiful needs to be showcased to the world]. But we all been guilty of licking our lips or kissing our significant other. It's nice knowing you won't accidentally ingest poison and toxic while looking beautiful [because it shouldn't be deadly wanting to look pretty]. I love how each pencil is packed with resveratrol; the amount found in five glasses of red wine! But wine is still a better way of getting resveratrol. Being packed with all the good stuff, it has none of the bad stuff like synthetics, polybutenes, and petroleum byproducts.

Now excuse me, while I apply this rich creamy lip color and go eat some pommies and wash it down with red wine. Cheers to looking pretty, while doing it!

Self September 2013

Happy Pills -
You have a headache, so you pop acetaminophen. Funny thing you might notice : it’s not just your pain that goes away. Anxieties like getting canned or dumped could disappear, too. Research suggest the drug may ease physical and emotional pain, since they possibly share a neural pathway.

Got a nasty sunburn? For quick relief, slather on plain yogurt.  The lactic acid calms inflammation and redness, and the cool temperature expedites the healing process, allowing heat to escape, unlike typical burn relief lotion. Leave on for 15 minutes then rinse.
