Man, I’m so tired… (How exhausted am I?) I’m so exhausted that I might go to bed best now. In my work clothes. Without removing my makeup.

“Did I wake you?”

“Oh, hi Mom. No, I was just napping…”

My mom’s superpower is her capability to phone call best as I’m about to autumn asleep (“Did I wake you?”), or at the precise moment I’m contemplating doing something potentially unwise (“What are you doing?”).

After the call, I thought about just blowing off the rest of the afternoon, grabbing some fro-yo, as well as passing out on the couch, however then I wouldn’t have been able to share the revelations I had about the NARS summertime 2012 collection at the dentist earlier today.

Yes, girl, I believed about makeup at the dentist’s office. It was the only thing I might do to keep from losing my sh*z!

A bit back story…

When I was a kid, I had a truly imply dentist who seemed to obtain fantastic delight from making me cry (I’m quite sure he was a masochist). To this day, I bawl like a infant during cleanings.

But my present dentist, who appears like Steve Martin, he’s an angel. He’s so good as well as patient, as well as he’s fantastic about walking me with the process, which I truly like. He even reminds me to unwind my shoulders as well as unclench my fists while I’m sitting in the chair.

But yeah, he appears like Steve Martin, as well as whenever he’s hovering over me keeping that bit silver hook, I begin playing tunes from bit shop of Horrors in my head…

Luckily, today’s cleaning went fantastic (no cavities, yay!), however the stress and anxiety of wondering things like, “What if an earthquake strikes while he’s scraping at my molars as well as he crochets my gums keeping that hook?” left me physically as well as mentally drained.

Between swishing, spitting as well as trying not to cry, my mind wandered to the new NARS 2012 collection. I believed about François as well as exactly how the team at NARS should have had lips on their minds when they produced it, because four of the nine pieces in the release are lip products.

Did they play it risk-free with a sunny choice of shiny coral, gold as well as pink? Not hardly. Instead, they took a danger on mattes as well as played with purple, red as well as rose.

Was it worth the risk? Let’s discover out.

Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil in Buenos Aires ($24): I like a great nude lip as much as the next girl, however this makes my lips disappear! — unless I pull some trickery, like lining them very first with a warm peach or coral pencil. It might look truly quite with the Ramatuelle Trio, with the beige shades playing off each other. only thing is, it doesn’t last long on my lips. We’re speaking one or two hours, tops.
