The Lipstick Page Forums Beauty & Fashion Blog: December 2005

This and that...
Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, December 21, 2005 3:23 PM (Eastern)

Did I ever mention that The Lipstick Page beauty forum was mentioned in the New York Times?

ONLINE SHOPPER; In Search of the One True Lipstick by Michelle Slatalla

It's a nice little article...even though I personally do not advocate buying a custom lipstick.

I just don't. I've had many a product become discontinued on me; most women who wear makeup know the feeling. For example, the pinnacle of blush--Lancome's Rose Charmant--bit the dust not that long ago. I was heartbroken momentarily--it can't be replaced--but so much of makeup is repetition. The same shades given new lives with new shade names. There is always a pink-rose-peach-brown configuration of blush on the market albeit never quite as sublime as Rose Charmant.

Of course as I write this, I'm really hoping that MAC will never discontinue their "Sophisto" lipstick. I would be lost without it.

I am really disgusted. How about I share it with you...

The store I normally get my sunscreen's in Berkeley so it's a drive...gave my sunscreen, All Terrain TerraSport--the one sunscreen you can find in the U.S. that has Z-Cote (micronized zinc oxide) as its main active ingredient--the axe.

Why????? I went all the way out there and all I saw...and you will have to keep in mind that this is an American sentiment...were tons and tons and bazillions and gazillions of expensive skincare products. But not one single Z-Cote sunscreen.

I say this is an American sentiment because it's exactly what you face if you have adult acne here. There is no shortage of expensive treatments, but there is very little preventive medicine.

There's one more place I can try to find it...if I'd known it would be this difficult to find, I would have ordered it online. Unbelievable.
