Hi SilentDance- Happy New year to you as well! My pup is still fine. Not sure what made him so sick.
---Good news! I'm sure dogs get viruses like people do and maybe that was it. It's funny how you can tell right away with the little dogs when they are not feeling well. Mine are hyper and I know right away when they are not feeling well or tired. lol
I did get some Clarins lip products for gifts. I got the lip oil and really like it. I wish the bottle was bigger!! I also was given the set of 3 tube glosses which are really nice and I am using.
---How is the lip oil? Is there a noticeable difference with dryness? I want to try it.
What lasting lines are you referring to that we purchased last year? I cannot recall.
--Eternal bronze, lasting brown, endless orchid and something charcoal. I have 4 of them and although I've only tried the brown and black, both were dried out. :(
I too have been using my BM liners lately.
--Those are the ones I am referring to?
I also have come to love the Clarins 3 dot liner. It gives me a similar look to the Trish gel liner but its much easier to apply and I think a bit more definition. Haven't seen the Clarins spring line in the store because I haven't been shopping. I am very interested in it. I also noticed a couple of other lines including Lancomes new spring palette are featuring a green shade. It seems like green will be one of the shadow shades for the spring.
--I need easy and I really need to check it out. I also need to use my planners. Good to know about green because I've only been reading about the Marsala shade for 2015. That is one shade I won't be wearing any where on my face.
Good idea for you to check out the cheek gelees in store. You really need to swatch them because they go on more sheer than in the pots. A stippling brush is the way to go to apply them.
--I would like something very natural for the no makeup days and it sounds like it may work.
Today I received a JM order. Got the Model Citizen duo on sale/ body butter and oil. Also got a little travel size duo of the radiance hair serum and oil which I LOVE. Oh for Christmas I was also given her argan dreams skincare kit. I think the creamy infinity oil is working well for chapped lips.
---I thought the infinity oil was good for the lips. Unfortunately, that was one of the first things the dogs got their mouths on when they first got here. I found it chewed up on the floor. lol I never replaced it because it got liquidy in the end which means that I should have used it faster.
--I do too. I just find that less shadow is better and eyeliner is a must. lol I really love the Dolly blush for some reason it's like an instant lift for my face. Maybe they will sell it separately one day.
I don't ever like to wear eyeliner without eyeshadow so I'm always thinking I need to put a little something on. I guess that the crease shade should be more mid tone rather than too light because it will make the hooded area appear to recede. I've seen some women with hooded, puffy eyes that area wearing light shimmery shades all over to the brow and it really brings attention to the puffiness etc. I agree about the liner and I'm big into experimenting with mascara. Lately I've been wearing one in Sapphire blue by Almay for blue eyes. It gives me some decent lashes that don't smudge. It doesn't look 'blue' but softer than black.
---I never wear liner without shadow and that is why I find the dolly shades nice because they are very sheer but buildable if needed. I just do a light swipe with the pink shade and then the liner close to the last and it looks natural but not barefaced.
Looks like iT cosmetics is going to have a new mascara out 1/4. Saw it in an Ulta ad. Might like to try that along with their brow pencil at some point. Still working on ybf. The Stila turned out to be awful.
---I didn't like the brow pencil. I found the shading very inconsistent, but it gets good reviews and maybe didn't mix well with my brow chemistry.
Talked myself out of the KVD palette. Probably more colorful that I would feel comfortable wearing. Also liking Clarins makeup right now.
Getting a hair cut can feel so good and a nice change. I like the long bangs. Do you have that entire layered cut or were you just showing me the bangs you got?
My haircut is like this. A long bob, a bit longer in the front with a bit of a side bang, similar length.
Second photo down...
---I got the whole cut and it's a huge change for me. My hair was at the waist and mostly one length. I like the lightness and my head isn't hurting from the weight and clips. I love your hairstyle, it has a nice edge to it. I like the shade a lot too in the pic. I would like to get some highlights next time. I had one color process done today. I hadn't dyed my hair in a very long time and the gray was making my hair look dry. Not a good look for me.
--Thanks and I hope all is well with you. I miss talking beauty with you. No one I know has this interest like we do
yes, all is well thanks. Do you use your Vitamix much yet? I added chia seeds this morning to my kale smoothie. lol Oh I finally ordered my dutch oven with Christmas money. Spice Island red and I hope to be cooking in it next week!!!
--Just used it tonight. I have not used it since last time I told you I did. I decided it's perfect for my new nutrition plan. I did almond milk, blueberries, apple, banana, honey and spinach. It didn't look appetizing but it actually tasted good. I purchased a container of Lessman's whey protein a way back and plan to start adding that to my smoothies. I don't like really cold drinks so the frozen bananas and blueberries were enough to make it cold instead of adding ice.
Missed you for a while and was wondering if you would disappear like Perritwin did. I'll always think of her when I see a mini frig!!!
---It's funny you should say that because I thought to myself "I hope bljed doesn't think I disappeared like PT did." I hope she is doing well and I wonder too if she is still storing skincare? lol I can't see Perricone products or read about them without thinking about her.
