I just can’t say no to MAC’s Pro Longwear Lipcremes! — not even when they’re in colors I don’t normally wear, like the cool-toned shades in the new Daphne Guinness for MAC collection. I feel like this batch caters to cooler skin tones, but that doesn’t mean warmer ones can’t try to make ’em work. 🙂
When MAC introduced these long-wearing lipsticks last fall with the Styledriven collection, I fell in lurve! They were everything I wanted, everything and more. Smooth, with a slightly shiny finish and plentiful pigment, they quickly became a favorite of mine.
The Daphne Guinness collection brings four more shades to the Lipcreme line, three of them I’m wearing here — Warp Speed (a light silver), Red Dwarf (a blueish pink) and Approaching Storm (a deep rose). MAC describes the fourth shade, Seasoned Plum, as a mid-tone lavender.

I’m worked up for Warp Speed, mostly because it reminds me of a color I wore a lot in the mid ’90s, back when dark purple lip liner and cool frosty lipsticks were all the rage.
Man, I worked that lip look OUT! 🙂 With the dark purple liner, that was my go-to look for house parties.
Good grief… What was I thinking?

My BFF Cindy emailed the other day to say she was thinking about getting a perm, and since she’s one of the lowest maintenance people I know, I was kind of shocked!
Not shocked by the idea of a perm but by a memory from high school… It was 1990, and Cindy played bass in the school jazz band. She had a spiral perm then, and whenever she’d play bass, her hair would hang over her face like Slash from Guns N’ Roses.
It was very rock star. 🙂
Cindy, perm or no perm, I’m there for you, girl.
