Sometimes, all a sister wants is to sit on the couch all damned day long eating crunchy things out of bags… Potato chips, Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies, maybe a few chocolate-chip macadamia nut cookies if they’re readily available.
And sometimes she doesn’t.
Sometimes, a sister wants to tower over the pyramids in leading lady leather high heels and femme fatale false lashes and big hair visible from space! 🙂
It’s the latter times when these new Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipsticks are extra nice.
Glossy, glamorous shades inspired by the sirens of the silver screen, these pricey pretties are a shock-inducing $50 a tube, but at least they satisfy like a Snickers bar. The creamy formula slips onto lips like a silk dress, leaving behind a finish so shiny that even the haughtiest, naughtiest vixen would purr.
Super fans of the Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick line may also love these. They’re around the same price, with similarly high levels of pigment (so high they could touch the sky!) and a preternaturally smooth, moisturizing formula. Depending on the shade, they also last on my lips around the same 3-5 hours.
These don’t have the same rosy flavor and scent as the Rouge Gs, though, which is kind of a bummer, because I prefer that to Silver Screen’s strong peppermint flavor and scent…which makes me feel a little like I’m wearing really pretty, really expensive toothpaste.
Mind you, really, REALLY pretty toothpaste.
Everything about these lipsticks (except for maybe the peppermint, but that’s a personal thing), from the velvet boxes, to the weighty tubes, to the embossed bullets and the satisfying click the magnetic caps make when they close, seems high end to me.
If you feel the urge to splurge, you can find the six new $50 Silver Screen Lipsticks now at Lipstick Queen counters, SpaceNK stores and spacenk.com.
PRICE: $50 each
AVAILABILITY: Permanent, and available now at Lipstick Queen counters, SpaceNK stores and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (Expensive, glam and gorgeous. And very minty.)
The sports bra drama continues…
Yay! — success.
I got them in a size smaller than my usual and doubled up on them, and while they don’t have seams and didn’t chafe on my run today, I probably won’t wear them on runs more than three miles… The support would be just fine for shorter distances, but anything more than that, and my boobs would feel like they were flying all over the place.
They bras are really soft, though, and comfy… Great for lounging around the house or for low-impact things like yoga.
AND THEY DON’T CHAFE! So thumbs up. 😀
