Sephora and I had a great day together today. Why is it that all good things happen to me within the walls of a Sephora store? In New York I've run into influential people in these buildings--in addition to breaking down at the number of lines they carry in comparison to our West Coast stores. Today, while investing some good genuine time into our relationship I was interviewed for the local news in regards to how I felt about the introduction of so many new organic cosmetics lines and the risk of carcinogens and hidden ingredients in conventional lines. I was thanked by the store manager with a gift basket, and let down later to find that the television station had edited my piece down to a few lines about what a beauty junkie I am, and how it is that I've come to be a sucker for kitschy packaging. Oh well. It's all experience right?
I did leave the store with a couple of fun finds that I've been dying to get my hands on. Cargo's Purse Gloss in Beijing is a wonderfully sheer lip slick that infuses just the right amount of color to your pout. Definitely not for the thin-of-lip, it accents the slight pucker that a full-pouted girl has to offer. At $16 a tube, you may as well grab a handful.
I couldn't leave with just one treat though. Lorac's Mocktails in Tropical Dream is a mix of sugary sweetness, and pineapple goodness. They are everything they've been promised to be. Not only are there a variety of shades to choose from, but the scents are out of this world! They are all very tropical and fruity, and on the slightly goopy side. Perfect for a lingering-infused scent. Regardless of how often I tell myself that I have enough gloss, it is about as large a weakness as mint-iced chocolate brownies. Undeniably addictive. And at $18 a pop, totally do-able.
