My neighbors probably don’t need another reason to think I’ve completely lost my mind, but that didn’t stop me from giving them another one today.
Since they already know that I take my cat out for walks on a leash, snap pictures of myself in the front yard, drive to the grocery store wearing false eyelashes, and periodically leap like this in the street, I figured heck — I have nothing else to lose. Might as well take pics of myself dancing in front of the windows while I blast Footloose and try on Tarte’s new The Starlet Limited-Edition Makeup Vanity ($52).
If I only had an old VW Bug and an empty barn, LOL! But more on the movie in a few…
As for The Starlet, a holiday kit containing makeup for eyes, lashes and cheeks, she really should be handled with care. Within my first minute with it, I’d already scratched the mirrored top.
The eyeshadows and blushes range in pigment from medium to full, which I like, but the powders are wild at heart! — as in incredibly powdery, and I find them difficult to control. I found myself having to press the products pretty hard to get them to adhere to my skin for any length of time.
As beautiful as it is, the kit has some strong selling points, like a wonderful array of wearable shades, but because of the powders, it would probably be best for beauties with a great deal of patience.
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and also online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B
Maybe it’s because I went into the theater with seriously low expectations, but I thought the new remake was great! It must’ve been made by people who really loved the original, because it’s almost like a tribute film. It stays true to the spirit of the first flick with the same basic story, just freshened up with new faces and a few new twists. And the actors really work it OUT! For me, the dude who played Willard totally steals the show.
I left the theater singing… Seriously, what a great show. Next time you’re in the mood for a fun, feel-good flick that doesn’t require a lot of brain power, Footloose!
Now I have a strong urge to go country line dancing. I’ve never done it before, but it sure looked like a lot of fun in the movie.
You wanna go?
