Snow Storms and Lipsticks

The weather has been hideous the last few days, apparently we're experiencing arctic storms somewhere off the coast, with one minute of sunshine and a severe snow storm the next. So frustrating, I want spring now! Nonetheless I wanted to venture out for a bit. The reason? I survived a meeting I had dreaded very much for a couple of weeks now, and I even ended up smiling and I felt like that was reason enough for a little trip to the mall - McDonald's and M·A·C, here I come!

The Body Shop Earth Lovers™ Shower GelAfter eating I had to take a quick detour to The Body Shop to check if they had something new and exciting to tempt me with, and of course they did! So I picked up one of their new Earth Lovers™ Shower Gels in Apricot & Basil - would someone please get me a straw so I can drink it? It smells so delicious! It's a 100% biodegradable shower gel in a 100% recycled plastic bottle. When I was on my way to the counter to pay for it I noticed an ad for a lip product called Lip Line Fixer, which is a retractable, colorless pencil made to prevent lipstick from bleeding and help 'fill' fine lines. Even though I don't use lip products that often, I decided to buy one to try. According to nine reviews on MakeupAlley it seems to be a good product, so I'm kinda excited about it - and a colorless lip pencil sounds neat!

Even though I do my best to stay away from the M·A·C counter when I'm at Trondheim Torg, I couldn't resist stopping by today. I wanted to check out their new Sheen Supreme lipsticks, especially since Fieran had sent me the pink one called "Behave Yourself" (light blue pink) - thank you so much, sweetheart! I wore it today and I absolutely loved the way it looked on my lips. I'd describe it as something between a lip gloss and a lipstick, and it gave my lips a sheer, subtle hint of pink. Perfection! Since I really liked this pink lipstick, I wanted to check out a few of the other colors while I was at Trondheim Torg. I had my heart set on "Gotta Dash" (pale clean coral) and "Full Speed" (bright clean yellow pink), but they were out of "Gotta Dash". I haven't tried "Full Speed" yet, but I adore the color! You can see swatches of the new Sheen Supremes here, here and here on Temptalia.

  1. I have this shower gel! I use it for the mornings when I just want to go back to sleep Smile Smells divine, for sure.

    I’m very glad you liked the lipstick, sweetie. I took one look at it and was sure it would not suit me, and I really didn’t want to swatch it hence the hunt on Twitter to find a good home for it Smile Enjoy!

    • I almost couldn’t decide which one of these new ones I wanted the most, but I’m a really sucker for peach – and apricot is a nice 2nd choice. I wish they were drinkable though! If you look closely in our bathroom, you’ll see several bottles with bath & shower gel from The Body Shop. Wink

      I love the lipstick! I was a little afraid it would be too light (I cannot stand how some people use a too light pink lipstick, it’s so ugly) for me, but it’s gorgeous. I’ll take good care of it, I promise – and thank you so much again. Grin
