NOTE TO SELF: do not from multitask while thinking about Deborah Lippmann’s $42 Rock This Town Trio, because if you try to do anything more complicated than walking while contemplating the glittery polishes in this limited edition set, you end up doing bone-headed things like stepping out of the shower and rubbing face wash, instead of moisturizer, on your legs and only realizing it a full minute later.
Light seems to love the glitter in mauve Moon Dance, copper Phoenix Rising and blackened khaki Chain Reaction more than usual.
As do I.
I don’t know why, but these polishes are downright dazzling…like getting caught in a tractor beam powered by Ryan Gosling’s smile.
The three polishes in the kit, which is one of six holiday sets this year, are also a pretty good deal. Debby-Deb usually charges $16-18 per 0.50-ounce full-size bottle, but with this kit you get three full-size bottles for $42, or $14 each.
A good deal on some great glitter…
I also like that these aren’t totally typical holiday shades. They’re a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, but still elegant, and when I look really, really closely at each of them, I can see little flashes of purple and pink.
Nice touch, D.
PRICE: $42 for the set

Sweet Honeydew Intimates!
Am I the only woman irked by the word “panties”?
No? Anywho, I’ve been needing new drawers, so I picked up a few pairs of Honeydew Intimates Boyshorts ($5 each!) on deep discount from HauteLook. I’d seen them before at Nordie’s and thought they were cute, but I didn’t want to pay full price ($14) for a single pair.
I’m glad I finally snagged ‘em because they’re really great. Soft material, so they don’t ride up, and they sit low enough not to peek out from my jeans.
I also just like the little feminine touches, like the lace and bows.
I spotted a few different styles on sale over at honeydewintimates.com for $8.40 each, in case you’re interested.
I may get a couple more pairs, along with these over-the-knee argyle socks.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. How’s it going, friend? I came close to not publishing anything beauty related today because I just didn’t really feel like it after tuning in to the news, but I wanted to share something at least a little light and positive…
Sometimes I wonder about us, ya know? People. I like to believe that the world’s a good place, but sometimes it scares me. It just really, really scares me.
