    But both put together don’t top your vampire faces :p.

    Your vampire faces are the BEST THING I HAVE SEEN ALL DAY! Maybe even all week. Maybe it’s just because it’s following the vampire faces, but the picture of you wearing Dazzle is one of my favorites of you ever. You look stunningly gorgeous.

    You’re the best Karen; you brighten my day AND create new lemmings.

      Yup, Wistful Wisteria. It’s very pretty… not as pigmented, but still gorgeous. It might be good for your everyday lippie!

    Of course, they all look fantastic on you. πŸ™‚ I think Dazzle or Sensation would probably work for me – but I’d totally rock Intense if I was undead. Btw, are you using the polish on your left hand to glamour people? Hey, look, it’s taupe… green… pink… blaaa (chomp). πŸ™‚

    I love the gold color on you, Karen. I am very pale right now, so I think it would probably be best for me, though I ADORE “Intense”! Thanks for this article. I normally don’t spend that much on lipstick, but I like the infusion of glossiness you pointed out.

    As for your dancing, props to you, girl! I have taken to dancing on a regular basis in my house, usually with my kids. I figure it’s great cardio for a minute, and I love teaching my girls to have the confidence to ‘dance like no one is watching’.

    Great post.

    Woo hoo! That music got me revved-up for my workout this morning – thanks! The lipsticks are pretty, but I’m not sure if they’re special enough for that price tag – and I’m not sure I could tell the difference between Dazzle and Sensation when they were on you.

      Hi Heather,

        I spent a half hour on the elliptical machine and then did core stuff with the exercise ball – boring, but it had to get done! I’ll have to check out that Jillian Michaels DVD for a change. : )

        Good for you! Those exercise ball workouts are killer. I have a really weak core and they always leave me dripping in sweat.

        The JM DVD I did was really good! It’s called Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism, and it’s great if you want to get your butt kicked, LOL. I did a review of it a while back; here’s the link in case you’re interested:
