Stuff We Would Kiss On the Mouf: More Makeup

I've been using a few newish products lately that I thought I'd share. They're not fancy schmancy - you can find them at your local Walgreen's or CVS.


Sally Hansen Natural Airbrush Makeup: Inspired by Carmindy - This is actually a reformulation/repackaging of a previous incantation of Sally Hansen airbrush makeup. El cheapo at CVS - don't remember the cost fo shizzle, but it certainly ain't $65 like the Dior airbrush makeup at Sephora. What I love about it is that it gives great coverage without feeling like you're spackling your face with a lot of grease and oil, and hey - this formulation is paraben free, which I just found out meself. Whee!

P.S. I apply it via a handy dandy makeup sponge, so I don't, as Amy asked earlier, spray a giant cloud of makeup all over my bathroom every morning.

P.S.S. Ask Amy about her husband's "spray, delay, walk away" method of applying cologne...


You know I've finally found my match in Jane Iredale liquid mineral makeup, but I STILL do so enjoy the image of you spraying your makeup everywhere and then having to clean the entire bathroom each morning before you leave the house, thereby taking away the convenience factor of airbrush makeup. I love that fake story. And long sentences. And short ones that start with "and."

AND, about Paul's cologne's a joke he does to make me giggle. I love him. At least I think it's a joke and he only does it when I'm around.

Organix Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner: Mmmm-kay, I don't know what my deal is as of late with coconut scented products, but DANG if this doesn't smell like someone cracked open a coconut and poured the milk over my head, I don't know what does. Smells SO much like an actual coconut, and not at all like fakey suntan lotion coconut (which I also love the smell of, I'm just sayin...) I have to say though - I did NOT love the way this made my hair feel, especially the conditioner. Even in the shower, it was not smoothing my hair down, and it took FOREVAH to comb out the tangles when I got out - nothing like the Loreal sulfate-free stuff I've been using lately (and which smells like rosemary and mint - YUM). However, I just got it, so I'll give it another shot, and if I still don't like it, I'm using it as a body wash/lotion combo instead.


The smell of this sounds delish but you know I ain't playin' when it comes to questionable hair products.

Sally Hershberger Supreme Lift volumizing spray: Just read about this stuff in my new Lucky mag and got some yesterday. It did indeed pump up the roots nicely, plus it smells pretty yummy, so I think it's a keeper.


You mean my hair can get even bigger? I'm so in.


Maybelline Metallique Eyeshadow Quad: Sorry - couldn't find a linkey-ink for this product. I snagged the last one on the shelf yesterday, and L-O-V-E it. The colors are warmish neutrals with shimmer. Perfect for tan skin and summertime. Aaahhhhhh. I'm taking this baby to Laguna, and don't think I'll need much more than a good blushy, my airbrush spray, some shampoo/conditioner, hairspray, perfume, lipstick, styling products, mascara, spackle, joint compound......

Shan - hode up. Are you suggesting we aren't natural beauties? My mom has been lying this whole time? I suppose this means I am not ever getting that pony then either.
