Just Notes: What I've been into, lately
Friday, February 22, 2008

As much as Jean Patou's Joy perfume was created in 1930 to combat the Great Depression, it doesn't smell exuberant to me. I get the American-ness of the rose, but it is also an English rose, and ... [more]
Culture Notes: Coty lipstick & Weird Al
Monday, December 17, 2007

What with the stress of the holidays, sometimes it's nice to just step back and breathe. I've had this Coty lipstick video in my bookmarks for a considerable time, and play it every once in a while ... [more]

Beauty Notes: What I've been into, lately
Thursday, October 25, 2007

Nars Mambo eyepencil. I haven't felt like wearing eyeshadow, much, so eyeliner is key (and faster to put on, anyway). I had three liners back in August of this year, and found I reached for this ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka Novum LipGloss #04 Ruby
Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Considering I haven't been into gloss in a long time, this is a decent gloss. It doesn't have much of a flavor or fragrance...when I put it on, I detected a slight pleasant herbal, Dr. Hauschka-y ... [more]
So...IS there lead in your lipstick?
Thursday, October 11, 2007

Got this link from the board: Lead tests raise red flag for lipsticks - Hazardous levels found in one-third of market samples - The Boston Globe At first I was inclined to dismiss ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick: makeup with a conscience
Wednesday, September 12, 2007

I've been wearing these lipsticks for a couple of weeks now (#01 Amoroso, #09 Dolce, #11 Effetuoso, and Lipstick Novum #04 Sand Dune). They are, without a doubt, good lipsticks. I hope that ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick #09, Dolce (pics)
Sunday, September 02, 2007

outdoors indoors + gratuitous earring shot :) This is more muted and natural than Dr. Hauschka #01 Amoroso: Where Amoroso is a coral red without shimmer, Dolce is a warm, somewhat shimmery, ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick #01, Amoroso (pics)
Saturday, September 01, 2007

I felt so inspired by this post, I felt like snapping some pics of my lipstick too! These pics came out a tad more saturated than real life...I was standing in front of a window (basically I ... [more]
Dr. Hauschka lipstick #01, Amoroso
Saturday, August 25, 2007

I feel this picture captures the shade a bit more accurately than the official swatch: In the swatch, Amoroso appears a sort of pinky peach. But it's actually a lovely, slightly bright coral ... [more]
Finding this weirdly mesmerizing...
Saturday, August 25, 2007

This is the "clean" version; the other had the blogger's URL slapped on it toward the end--yeah, I was tempted to post the other one, but anyway... I can admit I have zero temptation to buy the ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Chanel Moiré lipstick part 2
Friday, August 10, 2007

Okay, I give up. It's not that plummy. To my eye it seems plummy, but it's more rose than plum. I also have Nars Jezebel, Mambo and Malibu on in this pic, and my hair is completely wet. Happy ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Chanel Moiré lipstick
Thursday, August 09, 2007

I finally chased down my sample of Chanel Hydrabase "Moiré" lipstick and wore it yesterday. Wearing is believing...I'd forgotten how good this stuff is. Zero bleeding: the outline stayed ... [more]

Sunday, July 29, 2007

Wah! My MAC Strawberry Blonde lipstick has finally bitten the dust. I'm using Clinique Apple Brandy now: It's a nice lipstick, but it's not the same. The MAC Lustre formula is superior, ... [more]
Closing in on a signature lipstick
Thursday, June 07, 2007

Oh well, I've already decided to lose my Nars lipstick virginity. Now, which one? I'm thinking sheers. Yes, sheer has become a dirty word, when it is used to mean "next to no pigment in ... [more]

Ever bought a beauty product purely for its shade name?
Friday, April 13, 2007

This isn't even out yet; not even on the Sephora site. The name is just so eye-catching, would appear to be a frosted pink lipstick (even though the Nars site images seldom match ... [more]

Time for a new lipstick?
Thursday, February 01, 2007

I've been thinking about it for a just may be time for me to get a new lipstick. Now, mind you, I have been a cosmeti-holic since 1998, back when I discovered the Internet (yeah, I ... [more]
Why I passed on the rest of the Deneuve collection
Saturday, February 18, 2006

It's nothing personal, whatever. I adore Deneuve. The Bourbon lipstick would have been good on me...and the two shadow quads. I still jump for joy when it's "Strawberry Blonde" time. I'm a makeup ... [more]
