Welcome to the first edition of: What’s on Mollie’s Desk? Or, as I like to call it: Gah! Clutter! I’m currently writing about orange lipsticks, stellar skincare, and sweet holiday gifts. Some star products I’ve come across recently:
Blow’s Blow Up Thickening Mist: This light spray basically fattens up your hair (one case where bulk is better!) to make it look full and voomy (Hayley’s fave word). I have naturally straight, fairly silky hair that doesn’t do much — until I use this spray. I spritz all over, give it a quick blast with the dryer, and all of a sudden I have myself a ‘do.
Guerlain Kiss Kiss Liplift: As a recent lipstick convert, I am now dealing with issues like crackage, creasing, and feathering. So complicated! The solution to all those issues is a fantabulous lip primer. Guerlain’s version is a thick, slightly tacky formula that coats lips and makes sure your lipstick goes on smoothly and stays where you want it to. Cause really, who wants orange smears everywhere?
Givenchy Rouge Interdit Fruity Orange: I’ve been fairly vocal about my love of fuchsia and red lipsticks, but lately I’m on an orange kick. Tangerine lips were all over the Spring 2011 runway shows, but I’m impatient and I want to try them out now. Luckily they look great on a untanned face and cheers up blah winter clothes. Givenchy’s Fruity Orange is a cross between coral and salmon and has just enough sheen.
