Golden Lips and Golden Girls, Part II: The Rose
Ya’ll know I loves me some Blanche, but I couldn’t leave the other Golden Girls hanging without lip looks of their own!
I was inspired by Rose’s golden hair and the pink flush of her cheeks whenever she tells crazy St. Olaf stories.
While it has crossed my mind that very few people may appreciate Rose and The Golden Girls as much as I do (LOL!), I think the pink and gold in this lip look perfectly capture Rose’s cheerful personality.

I started by lining and filling my lips with a layer of MAC Pink Treat and a layer of Benefit Gilded pencil directly on top for added shimmer. Then, for even more sparkle and shine, I popped on a layer of Chanel Astral Glossimer.
For a more subdued version of this lip look, I’d skip the gloss. MAC Pink Treat and Benefit Gilded make for a pretty matte lip all on their own!

The site Etsy is a treasure trove of TV memorabilia. I find neat stuff there all the time, like the HutchMe ($18) tote bag. Let Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia help you carry your stuff in style. 🙂
And even if you aren’t as big a GG fan as I am, you can still get your golden on with this awesome Flying Golden Retriever T-Shirt ($17) by MisNopalesArt. (Side note: My family’s retriever died a few years ago, and this pic is what I think he must look like in doggy heaven… awww.)
The False Lash Files
Last night’s false lash session was, um, interesting. Let’s just say that crazy cat + false lashes = not a pretty sight. Maybe next time.
Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday! I’m not ready for the weekend to end…
