June Ipsy Glam Bag

My June Ipsy Glam Bag arrived and my first thought was that it’s the best one yet!  Check out what I received:

The Breakdown:

IMG_5460Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Wipes.  Cleansing wipes in a travel pack.  Awesome!
IMG_5456NYX Butter Gloss in Elclair.  Pretty shade and everyone online raves about the butter gloss.

IMG_5461Marc Anthony (wonder if it’s the same Marc Anthony/ JLo’s ex?) Dream Waves Beach Spray.  OMG! this stuff smells like summer in a bottle!  Can’t wait to try it.  Yes, even short haired girls can have beachy waves!

IMG_5459Be a Bombshell Lash Out Mascara in Black.  Good looking brush in a full sized bottle.  Only thing is it has an odd smell.  Wonder if that will go away?

IMG_5458Jessie’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Black.  I was especially excited to try this so I opened it to check out the applicator.  Eye liner juice went EVERYWHERE.  I cleaned it up and stored the eyeliner upright for a day.  Went back to use it and it just poured out the applicator all over my eye and right into my eye!  My eye white turned black!  It was awful.  So I won’t be able to use this.  Sigh.

Over all though it was a good Glam Bag!

Extended

My friend Christina has opened up a Pandora’s Box with CSP the likes of which I’ve never seen.  There’s a bit of a long running joke with Christina & I about hair extensions. She has long gorgeous hair and when we were at a party once a girl commented on Christina’s hair.  I whispered to the girl that Christina had extensions but to keep the secret.  She does not have extensions.  But that’s how it started.  Lately when we’ve been discussing my hair Christina has been pushing me (jokingly I think) to get extensions.  I mentioned it to CSP.  That started a whole conversation about extensions.  Could you tell when girls have them?  Does that lady have them?  Etc.  I mentioned that quite a few celebrities have extensions and some are pretty obvious.

Well, that did it.  Now every single time a long haired woman appears on the tv screen I have to hit pause so CSP can examine her hair and ask me tons of questions and comments. “Does she have extensions?  How can you tell?  Her hair looks fake, those have to be extensions!”  How am I supposed to know if some random celebrity has extensions?  I’m not the hair stylist to the stars!  I’ve never seen a man so obsessed with hair!  We were watching Rules of Engagement last night and the actress who plays Audrey was on the screen.  “What about her?  That’s gotta be extensions.  Look how long it is and how old she is! (he thinks if you’re over 30 your hair can’t grow past your shoulders for some reason)  Now I’m suspicious of every long haired woman!”  OMG.  The man is a manager at a grocery store.  I can just see him now, walking the aisles, peering at long haired women wondering about their hair!  He’s gonna get in trouble for being some sort of hair perv!

So vanilla

Ever since I saw Monsters Vs Aliens I’ve been thinking about how to get hair like Ginormica.  Now, it might seem odd that my hair inspiration is a cartoon, so technically I suppose her hair color isn’t really found in nature.  But what nature can’t give you, you get from the salon!  Look how cool her hair is though!  And I did find some real life (sort of) examples.  The singer girl from Steel Magnolia has almost white hair.  SO cute!  And the new movie Sucker Punch has a white haired girl in it.   Now, I’m aware that I’m neither 50 feet tall nor a country music star or fictional head band wearing chick in what appears to be a leatherette army.  But I don’t really have anything to lose, so I may just go for the full on vanilla blonde at my next salon visit.  I’m a natural blonde anyway, so it won’t be much of a stretch.  Well, it wouldn’t have been 20 years ago.  But the older I get the darker it gets so the more chemically enhanced it gets.  Poor CSP is worried I’m going to come home looking like a cartoon character.   But hey, no risk- no reward!
