Please try not to stare at my T. rex claws…but of course now that I’ve brought them up, you’re going to be staring. 🙂
“RrrrAAAaarr!” T. rex!
I’m holding a purse here because I’ve discovered — well, actually, I’ve know this for a long time — that it’s very hard to take pictures of your hands near your face, because when you have your hands near your face, it makes your hands look huge. Or, conversely, your face looks really small.
Is it working? I don’t know…
Probably not. My hands still look pretty big.
These two products — you may recognize the Revolution Lipstick. It’s a re-launch. The nail polish, however, is new. They’re both available now online.
That’s an interesting name isn’t it? Gash? I don’t want to be too morbid, but let’s just say — I don’t know — we were surfing one day and charging the waves really hard (yeah, those 3-foot waves) when we accidentally crashed into each other on our surfboards and cut our shins.
Not terribly, though. Just a few scratches. Not a lot of blood, because if there were a lot of blood, I’d probably pass out.
The color does kind of remind me of what’s pumping through our veins, though, and I have to say, it’s a pretty accurate representation. I know this because I broke a glass once when I was 19, and it cut my hand…
This was shortly before I told my parents that I didn’t want to go to medical school. I remember standing there in the kitchen holding the glass, and feeling kind of feint watching the blood drip down my hand, and thinking, “It’s probably not a good idea to go to medical school…”
And it happened really slowly, like, “I t ‘ s p r o b a b l y n o t a g o o d i d e a t o g o t o m e d i c a l s c h o o l . . .”
The blood was the exact same color.
The nail polish has a little bit of shimmer. I used two layers here, and the formula applies nice and smooth.
The only thing with Urban Decay polishes, though, is that they tend to chip fairly quickly for me. I’m talking one or two days sometimes, even when I use a base and top coat, so just a word of caution. Be extra careful with your nails when you wear ’em.
The Revolution Lipstick feels super smooth, and I love the way it looks. Wear time-wise, for what it’s worth, it doesn’t last through meals. I had some quinoa cakes yesterday, and when I looked in the mirror afterward, I could see the color sort of rimming my lips.
So, bring it with you. You’ll probably want to touch up after lunch.
