We spotted some lovely Fafi product photos over on Aesthetics Flickr album, and we had to share! I think I like the outside packaging more than the product packaging, ha! What do you think? Will you save these boxes or will they get tossed like the regular black ones?
Check our two more photos… Continue reading →
Do you re-apply your makeup to go out at night? Assuming you already did your makeup for the day, do you bother to change it for night time? Will you completely remove and start anew or do you add something to the existing day time look for night?
I usually re-do my makeup if I’m going out an my day time look is pretty minimal/boring. If my normal look was already bold, then I’ll tend to stick with that!
P.S. – How is everyone’s weekend going? Anybody do something fun? I hope you all did!

I recently tried out three Guerlain KissKiss glosses ($26.00) in Secret Beige, Rose Florida, and Fraise a Croquer. KissKiss glosses are delicately scented with something akin to a raspberry-sweetness. It is light enough that I find I don’t notice it very much after I’ve applied it to my lips. I did find that these particular shades gave me moderate color pay off, as far as glosses go, with no stickiness or goopiness. They applied easily, precisely, and really didn’t require much effort before my lips looked delightfully shiny and glossy. What I really liked about Guerlain’s KissKiss glosses was that they are incredibly moisturizing; as a compulsive lip balm user, the hardest thing about getting into lipgloss and lipstick was knowing I wouldn’t be able to repeatedly apply lip balm throughout the day. Having a gloss that is moisturizing and longlasting is thus imperative for me.
Verdict? At this price point, I can say that personally, my budget nor my conscience, would permit indulgences such as these very often, but if a certain shade comes around, I may splurge.

Is there a such thing as too young for makeup? Can someone start getting into makeup at too young of an age?
Personally, yes, I think so. I feel like as long as we can prolong childhood… we should. Growing up and becoming an adult, or even a teenager, is not always enjoyable. I would like girls to enjoy being naturally beautiful, loving themselves for who they are, before they start playing with makeup. Makeup is all good and fun, but sometimes younger minds get sucked into the concept of standardized beauty and having to look a certain way or not being pretty without makeup – that’s when I think there’s a such thing as too young!
MAC has recently opened up The Originals national contest, which can be entered online to US residents age 18 or older. I encourage you all to enter, but make sure you enter soon, as they take 1-2 days to review and accept your entry. This is the look I used to enter the contest…
