Pretty Lips

It’s been a long time since I’ve bought any makeup from a department store. I mainly buy from Sephora.com these days. If you know me, you know that I have a thing for lipsticks. I prefer the matte long lasting ones and sheers over the pasty or glittery ones. If I could only take one thing with me to a secluded island it would probably be a lipstick. A girl needs to look pretty all the time, you know.

I shop at a nearby Super Target all the time and rarely do I ever check out their beauty stuff.  Well, that’s because I always have my daughters with me and they love the pretty stuff just as much as I do.  Of course, they can’t buy grown up beauty stuff, yet.  And, I’ve got so much makeup (especially lipsticks) that they’ll ask me why I need to buy more.

But, yesterday, I went and got myself a Sonia Kashuk lipstick in Rosette.  I’ve been wearing it since I bought it and love how buttery it glides on.  There’s no staying power but the color is beautiful and works well with my skin tone.

Like all my other lipsticks, it too will go into the doomed lipstick box (Chanel, Shiseido, MAC, and Dior are already there along with CG, L’Oreal, and Maybelline) to be rummaged by my 10-year-old a few months later.  For now though, I’m going to enjoy how pretty it makes me feel.

Songbird [The Glee Version]

[Gaura Lindheimeri “Cherry Brandy”]

For you, there’ll be no more crying
For you, the sun will be shining
And I feel that when I’m with you
It’s alright, I know it’s right

To you, I’ll give the world
To you, I’ll never be cold
‘Cause I feel that when I’m with you
It’s alright, I know it’s right

And the songbirds are singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you,
Like never before

And I wish you all the love in the world
But most of all, I wish it from myself

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you,
Like never before, like never before

~”Songbird” by Fleetwood Mac

I heard “Songbird” on Glee a couple of weeks ago and couldn’t get my mind off of it.  It’s so beautiful.  All the cast members of Glee have such great voices.  Currently, my favorite is Santana.  I think she’s gorgeous and with that voice, she is perfect in every way.  Here is a youtube of her singing “Songbird.”
