Cult Favorite

"Cult Favorite", those were the words on a shelf at Sephora last weekend when I had wondered in for some Lip Venom...Twilight "Blush" to be exact.  Ok, y'all.  I don't just use this stuff because they slapped "Twilight" on the label.  It's actually a great lip "plumper" and it's a stain.  It leaves a nice "blush" tint on your lips without all that oooey-gooeyness of some lip glosses.  PLUS, it's a FAB lip conditioner!  You can layer another lip stick or gloss over it.  I Love it!  And it doesn't hurt that it says this on the label:  "Twilight Venom should be shaken before use (to represent the blending of the human and vampire worlds) and can be applied repeatedly until desired intensity of color has been reached and lips are plumped and revitalized.  What else you need to know: With a customizable ruby stain that captures the blood red lips sported by fashionable vampires, Twilight Venom can let you play the part!"


So, back to the "Cult Favorite".  I have been a devout fan of Black Honey since I was 16.  I seriously used to spend more money on Black Honey than I did on gas.  My BFF and I thought there was no other lipstick other than Black Honey.  A few years ago, I don't know how many to be exact, I lose track, dipwads the powers that be at Clinique decided to quit making the beloved Black Honey.  However, just as I was saying earlier...I was meandering through Sephora and a sign caught my eye..."Cult Favorite"...

"Clinique brings back Black Honey"...the angels started singing and there was this soft glow coming from behind the makeup counter...Elvis was even there.  Wait.  There was no Elvis, but all that other stuff totally happened.  

Did I buy some?  You bet your almost lipstick I did!  Anybody else ever a fan of Black Honey?  Do you have your go-to make-up product that you would be/have been devastated about, if it wasn't made anymore?

Hope you guys are having a great week!

P.S.  We just found out last night that the beginning of school has been pushed back an entire week!  WOOT!  Makes me a happy girl!

P to the double S.  Change of plans.  It looks like we'll be making a family trek to Indiana after all.  Not technically a vacay, but we'll be getting away from the house, work, and daily life for a few days.

I am so happy for you. I don't wear any makeup in the summer. Last year I didn't wear it in the fall or winter either. I gave up on beauty.

Estee lauder makes my favorite mascara.
