You have it on my authority that Bobbi loves herself some Navajo. Girl slaps that shadow in every single eye palette she introduces.
By now, I got all kinds of a headache from an overdose of Navajo. Every single Bobbi Brown Palette I own has Navajo in it so just like trouble, I don’t go out of my way looking for Navajo, it seems to find me.
At first Navajo was a bit of a novelty. It was a good all over color base and even it’s matte formula wasn’t too, too bad speaking as a self proclaimed shimmer-a-holic here. But than Navajo was rehashed too much and I noticed I was being force fed Navajo when I didn’t ask for a second helping.
In the end I started to hate Navajo.
Until I realized Bobbi Brown made Navajo in a cream eyeshadow.
I wish I had a will and a way to admit to myself that I already have PLENTY of lipgloss to get through and I really don’t need more. But sadly, it never works out. I convinced myself recently I would not indulge in the Bath and Body Works Liplicious Cupcakes Lipgloss.
Yes, they were cute. Yes, they looked tasty. Yes, they weren’t too badly priced.
But no…NO!…no! I did not need them. Hell, even I’m honest with myself I’ll go so far as to say I haven’t even gotten half way through a single tube of last year’s Liplicious Glosses so why in the world do I need more?
Sometimes there’s simply no rhyme or reason to a makeup junkie’s life, you just have to roll with it.
I’m kicking myself today for not picking up ALL the shades of Hard Candy Hide & Glow Cheek. You see, I only make a pilgrimage to the evil empire (Walmart) a few times a year and in most cases its because 1. my sister drags me in (her being the Queen of old Wally World and all) or 2. I need to get my Hard Candy fix.
During my recent foray I ended up hauling one of the three shades of Hard Candy Hide & Glow because I was a little meh and worried it wouldn’t be so fabulous but now that I completely love it, I’m left to kick myself around because I really hate the idea of heading back to the evil empire to get the other two shades.
Sod’s law, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong in the case of great makeup.
I’ve been stalking every drugstore in New York trying to get my hands on two of the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Holiday Palettes I don’t already own. It’s becoming borderline obsessive.
I haven’t been this hyped about makeup since Givenchy released its Diamond Powder!
I consider myself a bit of a tomboy in some ways but lord knows I love pretty things and that’s all about being a girl. I’m also a fond lover of collecting vintage Victorian and art deco vanity pieces. Some of my collection is worth quite a good deal of cash and wanting other pieces only adds to that large tab.
Which is why, for a very long time, I’ve been a fan of Lady Primrose. Speaking of pretty things…..
Lady Primrose has graced my vanity for a good number of years and although prices can be higher up it’s not nearly the amount you’d spend at auction for antique vanity pieces plus the fragrances that the brand launches are an incredible extra. I’ll be telling you more about the brand very soon but today I thought I’d do a brief review of their blotting paper.
Take a look!
