Some cats possess talent; others are possessed by it. When that happens, as the great Rod Serling once said, “a talent becomes a curse.”
Imagine, if you would, a cat with sharp claws resting on an air mattress (the same one you’ve been sleeping on since your in-laws arrived).
This cat has a talent for destruction…
…and for keeping me awake at night.
As sleep deprived as I’ve been these past two weeks, I’d be a heck of a lot grumpier if it weren’t for Jemma Kidd’s new Hi-Shine Glossticks ($25 each, available in five shades).
Inspired by the beautiful colors of beachy Barbados, these hydrating lipstick/gloss hybrids contain nifty light reflective particles to go with their SPF 15. The particles create the illusion of fuller lips, making them great for gals looking for a little lip boost.
Do you remember the MAC Slimshines (now discontinued)? If you liked those, I think you might also like these. They have a similarly thin, sheer, slick texture — unflavored and unscented — and both last about the same 60-90 minutes on my lips.
I’ve been wearing shimmery peach Sugar Cane off and on for a few days…

Wearing Sugar Cane… mah hair’s a HOT MESS
The Jemma Kidd Make Up School line, carried at Space NK stores (and online), is like the higher end version of the JK Jemma Kidd line available at Target.
I love the way this Sugar Cane looks, and it sure feels great on my lips (also, I love the addition of SPF), but I think I’d love it and the rest of Jemma’s Glossticks A LOT more if they were about $10 less… Available now at Space NK stores and online.Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+
