I can so picture myself wearing blue lipstick and looking like I spent the night out in the cold. It’s that Jack Torrance hypothermia look, Jack, your son will remember what you forgot, that blue lips are so NOT in this season!
Gloss though, gloss you can pull off. It’s far friendlier than blue lipstick and it makes your teeth look whiter and brighter. That subtle hint of blue in the gloss reflects off the white of your teeth and your smiles instantly looks bigger and brighter. True story.
And you can get the effect on the cheap courtesy NYX Smile Brightener Lipgloss!
You ever make a super cool makeup purchase and the formula on the product simply stinks but you sit around in complete denial how bad it is just because it’s so cool to look at?
Well, that was pretty much the case with the Maybelline Shine Sensational Pop Sticks. Those things were freaking awesome to look at with fairly cool packaging and of course, I proceeded to tell myself the formula was brilliant but let’s face, it didn’t quite work out.
I’m a huge Lennon fan and quite a big Beatles fan circa the acid trip years. Now if your as old as say my mum you really appreciate the “I Wanna Hold your Hand” years and the entire British Invasion but if you’re a bit younger, well, needless to say you love the years that Paul and John were dropping tabs and creating the most incredible music on the planet as far as I’m concerned.
With much focus on what both Paul and John were creating, I think, the fandom forgot how talented George was. He wrote Here Comes the Sun in ’69 when he was having a crummy year, lots was going on at the time including him being arrested for possession. George was quoted as saying he created the song one day when walking around Eric Clapton’s gardens. Go figure!
The song is one for creating an ear worm simply because we all have those crap days that seem like they are going on forever but there’s always a clarifying moment when the sun comes out and we realize everything we are stressing out about is really not all that bad after all.
Needless to say the short winter seems like it’s over and here comes the sun….with Spring full force ahead Philosophy has a brand new collection to get you geared for the warm, sunny weather ahead and fittingly it’s named Here Comes the Sun. I’d like to think George would be quite chuffed about having a skincare line named after his little ditty.
Warning there are gratuitous photos of JRM’s naked chest after the jump!
