the new bowl at phillip lim

a new take on the 'mod bob.' in other words, it is a graduated, ear-length bob with long, heavy bangs. the models wore pre-cut wigs. i dig it, but would rather wear a wig than request the cut.

style and clip-on fringe at l.a.m.b.

too faux?

i want to try 'em.

assymetrical bobs

has this not been done before? like two years ago? but ashley still manages to make it look good, especially like the center part and straightness.

purple blush

i am debating on purchasing a purple blush.

this looks pretty. my skin is not that dark, though.

this one is not that bad, either. more pinky purple. or purply pink.

true blood

one of my many guilty pleasures includes my obsession with anything vampirical.

the first episode of season 3 of true blood is on hbo tonight!

and the secret to deborah ann woll's flawless skin and pallor complexion? laura mercier tinted moisturizer! i tried the non-oil-free version and was not impressed with the shade (too dark) or how it felt on my skin, which was heavy. the coverage, however, is pretty good for a tinted moisturizer, so now i want to try the oil-free version in a lighter color.

lip stains

my lips are kind of pigmented. in a really unattractive way that makes my lips appear smaller. i like to hide this malfunction with cosmetics, particularly ones that won't travel to my chin or teeth. this rules out sheer lip glosses and most lipsticks, which leaves me with lip stains.

lip stains have become really popular and seemingly every cosmetic company has jumped on the bandwagon in releasing their own version. revlon just bitten, vincent longo lip & cheek, cover girl outlast, givenchy printed lips, mac tinted lip markers, urban decay lip envy, stila crush, benefit benetint/posietint, laura mercier, nars, the list goes on!

i have tried a bunch and i really like revlon's just bitten because they come in four varied colors, they smell good, you can see how much product you have left, and they don't dry out because they aren't in marker form.

benefit's stains are too drying for lips and they don't really show up. and carrying around a huge nail polish sized bottle around seems inappropriate. and benetint smells like roses, which is nice, but not for my lips.

i have yet to try givenchy, mac, and stila, and probably won't because they are markers and my experience with cover girl has put me off this form of lip stain as they tend to dry up.

lust: nars color wash in pussycat


i have so many headbands that i never wear. i have this rather strong compulsion to purchase things that will affect my appearance, and then i never end up wearing or using these things that i convince myself i can not live without.

this one reminds me of paris hilton. she would elegantly wear it over her blonde bangs. i use the term 'elegantly' loosely.

old hollywood hair

old hollywood glamour. paz vega manages to pull it off quite well.
