I’ve always had a weird fascination with those personalized name tchotckes — like the little license plates, key chains, bottle openers and refrigerator magnets you always see at the airport on display in front of the periodicles stores.
I don’t know why, but I just love those little things, and the spinning kiosks, too. You twirl them around, looking for your name, and then voila! — there it is! Hopefully.
I’ve always gotten a big kick out of that…
Imagine my delight when I came across this new line of Full-On Lip Polish lipglosses ($19 each) from Buxom on all its spinning display glory at Sephora yesterday.
Of course I had to stop.
“For kisses that’ll keep them coming back for more, try this sheer, high-shine lip polish. It creates the look of fuller, more voluptuous lips with a refreshing tingling sensation and gentle plumping effect. Vitamins A and E help keep lips soft, supple, and protected, ensuring your smoothest moves ever.”
Each of the glosses has her own name, so you can walk up to the display, twirl it around, and look for the gloss that matches your name.
How cute is that?!
The sheer, shimmering, glistening $19 Buxom Full-On Lip Polishes have been around for a while, but the brand just recently expanded the collection up to 100 shades (!).
Yes, I did find one called Karen, and I may or may not have giggled fiendishly when I saw that she’s a sparkling pink.
Wouldn’t these make great gifts for bridesmaids, birthdays — you name it (pardon the pun)? And even if there isn’t one with your name on it, the collection is so vast, with lots of neutrals, pinks, berries, reds, plums and oranges, that you may still find one you like. (Shoot! I didn’t see one called “Tabs.”)
The Buxom Full-On Lip Polishes are available now at Sephora stores and sephora.com.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Howdy, babe, and welcome to the hump! It’s not even 9 yet here, and already my office feels like the inside of a brick oven. I swear, I could cook a pizza on my desk.
Yup, it’s gonna be a hot one today. Shorts weather, for sure.
Ouch! — Tabs just bit my ankle. He’s been extra annoying lately, and I think it’s because of the heat. All he wants to do is play outside. Every time I get up from my chair he runs to the door. I can almost hear him saying, “Put on my damned leash, woman, and take me outside!”
If he had his way he’d spend every minute outside stalking lizards, hunting finches and napping in the sunshine (and being tracked by hungry coyotes).
Sigh! Cat mom guilt… Sorry, tabby baby, you’re an indoor kitty now.
Anyway, friend, have a nice day.
