A few days ago I made a wish, and this week it came true. I wished for a new purse gloss, and it appears a genie was listening.
What’s a purse gloss, you ask? It’s a gloss that’s worthy of permanent residence in your purse. You keep it close for touch-ups and other beauty emergencies…like when you randomly run into your ex and his new lady love at the mall (she’s cute, but you’re cuter), or when a TV crew asks you for an impromptu sidewalk interview about hot dog street vendors (yep, that really happened).
With a tube of Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Genie ($32) in your purse, you’ll be tough to catch off guard. One of two Rouge Allure glosses in Chanel’s limited edition Le Perles de Chanel collection for spring 2011, it’s a shiny but wearable coral with golden micro glitter and comes in Chanel’s trademark Extrait de Gloss formula. Non-sticky, luscious, hydrating, and lacking any potentially bothersome scents or flavors, it’s ready for drama AND flexibility. With a four-hour wear time, it’s also designed to laaaast.
The color’s fun and playful, but it’s also one of the most wearable shades I’ve seen this spring season so far. Sure, the traditional seasonal rules say it’s too early for shiny coral lips, but rules are meant to be broken. This Genie wants out of her bottle, babe.

Hey now, you’re a rock star!
Last night after the Glee Christmas episode (Did you catch it? If you did, what did you think?), I ended up watching an old Marky Mark and Jennifer Aniston movie I must have missed when it first came out called Rock Star.
Mark plays a man obsessed with butt rock metal band Steel Dragon, LOL! Sure, it’s corny, but I love light and fluffy corn. And Jen’s makeup and hair looked FAB, as usual (I’m convinced she’s got a glamor clause in her contract)!
The movie takes place between the late ’80s and the early ’90s, with the main character getting involved in the Seattle music scene, which kinda put me in the mood for Soundgarden today.
Remember this oldie?
