Excerpted from the diary of a NARS Mexican Rose Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil…
Didn’t do much yesterday other than radiate awesomeness.
Yeah, that’s right. I make it rain! And if that makes me sound conceited, so be it.
My pink-haired roommate (we totally match!) tells me all the time, “you’re basically the sh*t.” She clearly sees that I’m the chupacabra of perfect pink lips.
I think she might be my new BFF, which is funny… Girls usually get so jealous of my dense pink pigment, high shine and easy-to-apply pencil tip.
But it’s not my fault that I’m so awesome and unique. I can’t help that I start off all super shiny like a gloss or that I morph into a hot pink lip stain with a subtle sheen.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s so not easy being flawless, and when I finally make my debut beside the rest of the NARS spring 2012 collection on January 13, not only will I have to shoulder the burden of perfection, but popularity, too.
Oh, well… Both of them are crosses I’m willing to bear.
Anywho, the pink-haired girl and I hung out for 12 full hours yesterday. She slipped me on shortly after brunch. Then, I watched her write a bunch of cheesy @ss puns — “Mexican Rose blooms with intense pigment,” “This pink is the hot house flower of NARS spring 2012,” and “Send me a dozen Mexican Roses for Valentineâ€™s Day” — while we shared six cups of tea, a Honeycrisp apple (wow, those are good!) and spent time harassing her rotund tabby cat.
Next thing I knew, night had fallen, and we were off to yoga class (I would’ve preferred a swanky museum opening or a garden party).
I gotta say, I was the hottest pink lip in the room — well, the only pink lip in the room, but details, shmetails.
At one point in the class, between awkward downward dogs, the pink-haired girl checked herself out in the mirror and mouthed, “Holy crap! Mexican Rose is still going strong!”
Back at the house, we watched an episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (is Brandi’s butt for real?!) and had a dinner of slightly burnt broccoli and pasta, with a few kisses from a dude who kindasorta looked like Detective Stabler for dessert.
As a stain
All in all, it was a pretty good day.
Granted, not one of my best, as my color did begin to break up and feel slightly dry, but come on! — it had been 12 hours, after all. You gotta recognize!

You know you’re a cat lady when…
…you buy a pair of slippers because they remind you of your cat.
Yes, I know these scream Snookie, but they were like $10 at Nordstrom Rack, and I figured that if Tabs got lonely, he could always snuggle with them.
El Hubs likes ‘em, too. He pretends they’re kittens and gives them chin scratches, LOL!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. I’m feeling a lot better today. Hope you’ve been having a nice day as well.
