The Makeup Counter Monster

I’m G U I L T Y. . . 

Gross!!! Ladies beware of this. . . definitely not cool to catch something for the cost of “beauty” and that’s WORD!
As the excerpt states you can clean the lipstick by dipping it in alcohol which most cosmetic stores provide to their customers, however you are still at risk.
I’ve never applied makeup counter lipstick straight to my lips because of my anal personality but devastated to read that it still does not protect you from bacteria! Lesson learned here, period.
Thank you Women’s Health Magazine!

DANGER! Red Square is HOT!

NARS Red Square Matte Lip Pencil Madness…

The lip color I’ll be wearing all weekend long in memory of my gal Marilyn Monroe – Happy Birthday!!!

Three weeks ago I attended NARS Tweetup Event with my makeup artist buddy Melissa, follow her on Twitter she’s a makeup treasure box @MegaDivaMelC.  We are both rocking Red Square on the pic below. . . Aooow!
The event was such great opportunity to meet other fellow makeup artist and no other than NARS Director of Global Artistry. . .
James Boehmer!
He was such a charming person to talk to and one of the reasons I returned back to the register to purchase my Red Squareee.
Bonus, we received 20% off their products!

I told myself that I will only purchase ONE item, let’s just say I left with FIVE!
However, no regrets, I love every product I purchased such as the Lola Lola eyeshadow, Super Orgasm Illuminator, Laguna Bronzing Powder, Red Square Matte Lip Pencil and Gold Digger Lip Gloss.
I’ll leave you with a tip that James gave me when wearing Red Square.  Apply NARS Heat Wave Semi Matte Lipstick on the middle of  your upper and lower upper lips to give it that oh so cool ombre effect.
To give you visual idea. . . its the lip rim you get after drinking red wine 😉
