i am however, a sucker for any makeup gimmick. i found myself googling cindy crawford's skincare line the other night/morning when i couldn't sleep and somehow got sucked into an infomercial. i mean, it contains this wonder melon that i have never heard of that rots exponentially slower than any other type of melon. in the world, people! so it must make me look young, right? just look at cindy crawford! luckily the google reviews were bad and i was saved $100 every 90 days and my dignity!
but yes, i am still a sucker. i see commercials, and if the product is affordable, i will test it out. i am currently stocked with products claiming to firm my skin, get rid of wrinkles and make me look 20 again. we'll see...in the back of my head i know they can't really reverse aging. but that doesn't stop me from hoping!
so it came to be the other day that chris and i went to aveda to get facials. it's kind of a birthday tradition on his birthday. we get facials with foot and scalp massages, go get a bite to eat at some dive diner and then have a few beers at an even bigger dive bar. tons of fun. as i was getting my facial, i fell in love. i adore all things aveda. the smell, the ingredients...i love it all. so when they tried to sell us product after the facial, i couldn't resist. (well, the fact that if we spent $75 in product, we got a free facial didn't hurt!) so i bought this stuff.
the other item i am loving this week is maybelline colorsensational lipstain (in cranberry crush). i had been reading about lipstains on various blogs, so i decided to try it out. generally i don't wear lipstick. i am a chapstick afficionado, but lipstick is usually only applied once as i'm going out on a friday night. i always forget to reapply, and then after one sip of wine, the color is all on the glass and gone from my lips. i love how it looks, i just don't have the memory to reapply every 20 minutes! so i bought this stuff. and i love it. first of all, it's cheap. i got it at target for $4.99. secondly, it smells like candy. actually, scratch that, you know what it smells like? one of those scented markers; the ones where red smells like cherry, blue smells like raspberry and black smells like black licorice (gross). the minute i opened it, i was brought back to grade school. because not only does it smell like a marker, it looks like one. yep. it's a marker for your lips. check it out.
it's kind of weird to take a picture of just your lips. have you ever done it?
so there you have it. my unendorsed loves for the week. how about you? do you have any products that you absolutely adore? do share...because i'm sure i will run out and buy them!
here's to a wrinkle-free week!
