Wearing Benefit Full-Finish Lipstick in Wanna
Benefit’s boxed blushes aren’t the only girls getting new outfits for spring. In January the company’s Full-Finish Lipsticks ($18 each) are also getting gussied up, with thicker bullets and shorter tubes.
phasing out all but one of the existing shades (UPDATE: I just received info from Benefit saying that they will not be phasing out all the existing shades of Full-Finish. Instead, they’ll be adding these 12 new shades to the current line. Some of the colors in the current line will remain and be repackaged into the new tubes. I’ll update you once I get word of which shades will be staying and which ones will be going.) Fame Game (from the It Girl Collection, Fall 2009), and introducing 11 new ones.

Pinking of You
My lips love how soothing, smooth and creamy these feel, and my eyes love the pigmentation, particularly that of the darker shades, which apply a little more evenly than the lighter ones do. As for wear time, it’s a pretty typical three hours.
And speaking of pretty, that’s just what these are.
PRICE: $18 each

Don’t forget me, James Franco
I’m obsessed…with James Franco. I read a piece on him in Entertainment Weekly the other day, and apparently, homeboy’s quite driven and smart. Without putting his acting career on hold, he got his undergrad degree in English with his concentration in creative writing from UCLA last year, and is now working toward his PhD from Yale.
Wow, right? Dude knows how to get sh*t done. And all this time I thought he was just a pretty face.
Still, I have no desire to see 127 Hours, James Franco or no James Franco. I don’t think I could handle it. I mean, why didn’t homeboy just tell someone where he was going?!?
