If you’ve seen many vampire movies and TV shows, you probably know that in the supernatural world, the vamps usually have the market cornered on cool clothes, cars, castles and makeup.

If it wasn’t for the whole blood drinking thing…I would actually consider the lifestyle.


This past fall all I wanted to wear were opaque, dark berries, reds and plums on my lips. I was going for that whole “I’m an extra on the next Underworld” effect.

Vampire lips all the way.

Well, now that phase seems to have morphed into something else. I’m still into rich fall colors, but in sheerer, more lower-maintenance shades, like these two Neutrogena Perfect MoistureSmooth Lip Colors in Rich Raisin and Plum.

They’re moisturizing, easy to apply and look lovely with smokey eyes. Plus, because these shades are pretty sheer, I don’t have to worry as much about making mistakes as I did with those richer fall colors.

They’re available now in vampire nests, drugstores, grocery stores and online for $8.49 each (along with some other shades, too).

By the by…

Do you happen to recognize the gal in that illustration at the top?

Who’s that cat lady?

Yup, that’s me! — looking impossibly tall in a pair of skinnies and holding a bottle of my fave Neutrogena Ultra Cleanser.

The drawing is by Brook Hagel, a fabulous New York-based fashion illustrator. Here’s her Etsy shop (I think she’s away on vacation), where she does drawings on commission.

Ooh… Wouldn’t that be such a great gift for a gal pal?

    I own the plum and get many compliments, one even from a MAC artist who wanted to know what it was. I have extremely dry lips and these are wonderful.

    I am loving your long glowing hair! It suits you very well and looks youthful. And your eyebrows looks considerably thicker (love a thick brow!). Have a good weekend.

    Love the Rich Raisin on you, and the illustration is very cute. Funny, I was in CVS earlier this week, and I was thinking how Neutrogena doesn’t get any love. I think as a brand, it’s a little low on the glamour factor. But I used to use a number of their products, and I think I will check out those crayons. Maybe that’s the right way for me to do the fall wine shades instead of a dark lipstick
