Wait a minute. You mean there exists a beauty-oriented community where I don't have to deal with fourteen-year-olds with usernames like cutiesugarhunnyjoeysgurl_xx_14 lol, kthx?
Hi, I'm Laurel. I'm 28 and a card-carrying corporate goth in San Francisco. :)
1. A recommendation for the best product ever
Christian Dior DiorShow mascara. Yes. I used to justify this expense by saying, "Well, I don't buy designer coffee!" But now I buy designer coffee, so I justify this expense by saying, "Well, I don't buy cigarettes!"
2. Your most terrible middle school makeup look
Oh dear. Spikey clear mascara on my lashes (which I now use on my brows, and that's good), oil slick quantities of Bonne Bell Lipsmackers... I guess these aren't bad things. Other girls were turning their hair orange with Sun-In at the time. The cakey Shine Free foundation was a low point. Now I use very expensive cleanser so I don't, strictly speaking, have to put anything on my skin.
3. Make any suggestions for additions to the interests list
"Anything but beige" is pretty wonderful, and I don't know that I can outdo that at 10:15 in the morning when I'm supposed to be working. Hm. How about, chandelier glass nail files? I really dig mine.
So, how good are the Clinique Butter Shine lipsticks? Because I can barely resist running right out and buying Perfect Plum.
