I wish I could adequately explain some of my beauty purchases.
I really wish I could understand what compels me to buy my fourth baby pink lip-gloss in as many weeks. I wish I knew what drove me to abandon all common sense and try Sally Hanson Nail strips just one more time, despite the four previous failures.
The only explanation I have for my latest purchase is that the ghost of Liberace may have possessed me.
I bought this:
Because, HEY! Gold lips are a…thing? Do you know how hard it is to keep our mouths shut for 2 minutes? As you can see, the results were not so great, but that was probably human error. Also, the minute you start talking or producing oil…your lips start to stick together. When you open your mouth to speak you look like a glam zombie.
Of course, I think these are for those who are so fierce…they don’t have to say a word!
Lip Rock is actually created by a company called Rock Beauty that has all sorts of cool things you can stick on your body – including eye crystals and funky liner. This site will make your inner Drag Racer squee with delight!
The company also makes these really cool Union Jack nail stickers that remind me of the time I was running through London in white and neon and holding hands with Wham! (That didn’t happen)
Anyway, Lip Rock gives you multiple applications of lip foils so I could experiment on the most adorable lab rat ever!! Miss Lily was glad to help us out. So, here are the directions:
HOW TO LIP ROCK
Ensure your lips are clean, dry and oil free. Use an oil free cleanser to remove any build up of lip gloss, balms or lipsticks.
1. Apply an even, generous layer of Lip Rock adhesive to the lips.
2. Leave for 2 minutes until the white adhesive has gone clear.
3. Taking your chosen lip Rock sheet apply shiny side out to the lips.
4. Press and rub firmly.
5. Holding the corner of your mouth with one hand pull the Lip Rock sheet firmly and swiftly off the lips with the other.
You can touch up by repeating the process on any gaps taking special care to leave the adhesive for 2 minutes or till gone clear.
I may try these again for New Years Ever, because if at first you don’t succeed…you have to use stuff up or your husband will give you, “ the speech.”
Note to PL Readers- I love you all so much I showed you my ugly bathroom AND my face without make-up.
