Truth: sometimes I like products just because they’re cute.
And if they’re cute and on sale, like Tokidoki’s Gelato Lip Balm Stain in Skeletina ($5, regularly $9), I’m liable to like them even more. 🙂
Tabs is quite the taskmaster, as you well know, but every once in a while, about as often as a solar eclipse, he takes pity on his lowly assistant and grants her (me) a break.
Today was one of those days. I was given a break from my official feline assistant duties and two hours of company sanctioned “me time,” or “meow time,” as Tabs likes to say.
He’s a big fan of meow time. 🙂
Behold the face of a kitty dictator!
Today, I decided to spend my meow time on a beauty break — ya know, some noms, a little window shopping and, of course, makeup.
Join me! It’ll be fun.
First order of business: Starbucks. Grab a seat, and I’ll get us some tasty beverages. Gotta fuel up before we browse.
Where should we start? How about Sephora? There’s one just down the street.
Don’t worry about spending money. We’re just going to look around. Promise.
Well…unless we come across a completely awesome life-changing color. In that case, all bets are off.
Lately at Sephora, I’ve been starting in the Tokidoki section. The cheerful packaging gets me every time, like this new limited edition Love From London Palette…
Isn’t it cute!? Eight eyeshadows, a bronzer and a keychain for $42. That’s not bad. And the pans look pretty big, too.
I like the mix of neutrals and blues — oh, but they swatch pretty sheer…
I think I might like it more for the cute factor than anything else. Let’s keep moving…
Ah, some new stuff from Korres!
The Cheek Butter cheek tints ($25 each), which are supposed to be hydrating and long-wearing, feel surprisingly thick and creamy.
I’m totally using my new Lloyd Christmas bangs as an excuse to
go buck wild explore new developments in the hair accessories department, and this new mission of mine took me to Sephora.
I went under the guise of finding something to hold my bangs in place and bumped into these packs of (adorable) limited edition Tokidoki Royal Pride Safari Bobbi Pins and Heart & Cross Bones Bobbi Pins ($9 each).
But when I stepped up to the register with them, what ensued was a lovely reminder of my age…
Sales clerk: “Aww, these are super cute!”
Me: “I know, right!?”
Sales clerk: “Are these for your daughter?”
Me: “Uh…not exactly. (I wonder if I should tell her about my cat.)
Sales clerk: “Oh… You’re buying them for yourself?”
(Insert long pause.)
LOL! Not gonna lie — I kinda wanted to pinch her (lightly) with my 36-year-old toes.
