Monday Mix: Victory! — or, Why Jiffy Lube Rocks, and Sales

By Voxy  

Say what you like about Jiffy Lube. Yes, they are overpriced, their waiting areas are generally scrungy, the TVs are for some unfathomable reason not hooked up to cable and are always showing Jerry Springer, and their estimated waiting time is separated from reality by several orders of magnitude.


While changing my oil and vacuuming the inside of my car, the guys at my local Jiffy Lube succeeded this weekend in doing something that I have spent months trying to accomplish. To wit:

They recovered my Lancome Rouge Magnificence Lipgloss from the Lipgloss-Eating Monster Who Lives Under The Front Seat Of My Car.

For this heroic task, let them be venerated until the end of days!

It is only slightly the worse for wear, with some small nicks and scratches that to me are poignant battle scars, emblems of its long captivity and certain torture at the dastardly claws of the LEMWLUTFSOMC.

How do I love thee, Lancome Rouge Magnificence Lipgloss? Let me count the ways.

1. Thou art a sheer but true red color that is surprisingly wearable.

2. Thou art not sticky and thou givest a glossy shine.

3. Thou lookest good on bare lips or over other lip colors.

4. Verily, thy staying power is mighty, and thou leaveth no residue on lips.

Behold! A swatch.

Today’s nude lip:

Today’s lip with Lancome Rouge Magnificence gloss (no other color underneath):

All hail the brave knights of Jiffy Lube!

In other, non-Shakespearean news:


The philosophy F&F sale is going on through 5/20, with 20% off and free shipping over $50. Use code HAPPINESS at checkout.

Allison Raffaele has 35% off (!) through 6/28 (!!). No, that is not a typo. Use code LUCKYBREAKS1 at checkout.

HauteLook has Tarte on Tuesday (that sounds like the name of a musical theatre show) and Decleor on Thursday. All sales begin at 11 am Eastern/8 am Pacific.

    YAY! The foul monster has been defeated! (I’m now seeing a knight with a vacuum…which, actually, is pretty sexxy. I need to get out more….)

    I also wanted to mention that I finally found Cherries in the Glow and I really like it! Thanks for the recommendation!

      Right. There. With. You.

      I’m glad the Cherries in the Glow worked out! I really like it too. I’m happy to have my Lancome back, but the other one looks almost the same on me, and is cheaper to boot.
