Marzipan a strange and unusual cake topper in some areas of the world and in others, an art form….
Seriously, have you seen what people create using marzipan? It’s down right strange.
Within the US I don’t think we embrace marzipan as fully as the rest of the world does. We commonly use it to decorate the tops of cakes on occasion but it’s not something we pop into our mouth for the sake of enjoying it. Some might compare it to Turkish Delight but I wouldn’t go so far as I think it’s positively a gross texture and not nearly as delightful as Turkish Delight.
Mind you my dislike of marzipan extends to the actual candy but not to the wonderful things that Lush Cosmetics creates using its scent.
Once a year, during the Holiday season, Lush releases a wonderful soap entitled Snowcake. Some of you are already obsessed with said soap while others may recognize the name from my past obsessive musings….It is truly a gift from the gods above. Snowcake has a creamy almond scent that Lush dubs as the scent of marzipan. If marzipan smelled nearly this great, I’d be eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner yo.
Ahhh the MLBB experience.
What’s MLBB you might ask? Why that would be the my lips but better lipstick or gloss you might own. The one you reach for daily because it enhances your natural lip color but doesn’t overpower it. The one that makes you look like you have nothing at all on but still looks sexy and pouty none the less.
I think lip junkies would agree that the my lips but better experience rarely comes around but when it does, it’s embraced to the max and in some cases you’ll find yourself stockpiling the product you use to create that perfect, bare, nude lip look.
I’ve only had one MLBB experience myself and that would be with Urban Decay Naked Lipstick. I can’t say I have a ton of glosses or lipsticks in my stash that achieve this incredible look but I surely wish I did and I’m always hunting around to see if I can find another product that will achieve the result.
I am happy to say that Urban Decay Lipstick in Indecent has made it’s way into my stash and it’s almost as lovely as Naked in some ways….
Oh baby Bobbi Brown Black Velvet popped into my mail box today and I’m every so happy. Quite an exciting release for Bobbi with all sorts of deliciously dark, rich colors to choose from for Fall.
