Voxy’s Latest Lemmings

By Voxy  

Here’s what I’ve been eyeing lately.

Too Faced Magic Wand Liquid Foundation. Tried this in ULTA and was fortunate that out of the limited color selection (only 7 shades), the lightest works really well with my skin. It went on like butter but might be too drying for long wear. Trying to tell myself I don’t need to be disappointed by another liquid foundation.

Status of lemming: Still at large.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. Cult favorite. Somehow I missed the arrival of Mario Badescu at ULTA, but lo! there it was. A strange two-tone product containing calamine, camphor, sulfur, and salicylic acid. The calamine settles to the bottom, so it’s an odd-looking bottle. You are specifically instructed NOT to shake it up before application; instead, you dip a Q-tip down through the top yellow portion into the pink calamine portion, withdraw it, and dab it on the pimple. Hmm.

Status of lemming: Shot and bagged.

Josie Maran Argan Oil Moisturizing Stick. Argan oil is apparently one of the best things to hit the skin care market since, well, ever. I am dying to get my hands on some. I’m lemming this because you can get a travel size version of this product at sephora.com for $6 and I really want to try it.

Status of lemming: Still at large; on Most Wanted list.

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Primer. Maybe this time is the time Lucy won’t yank the football away I’ll find a makeup primer to fall in love with. I’m only trying this because Too Faced Shadow Insurance already won my heart, so I admit I have high hopes. Maybe I should ask for a pre-nup in case it doesn’t work out.

Status of lemming: Shot, trussed, and tied to the front of my car.

Givenchy Gloss Interdit Ultra-Shiny Color Plumping Effect lip gloss in Rose Taboo (rosy mauve). Remember the little “My First Makeup Kit” I bought from Sephora in October? There was a sample of this in there and the color is fantastic — truly a “my lips but better” product. I’m almost through the sample and am sniffing around the full-size product.

Status of lemming: Still at large… for now.
