introduction [Nov. 9th, 2005|10:16 am]



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.

I completely agree with you and won't give you any LOl CaPitAl TypIng and am not named Cute_sexy_Chicky36.

2. I love Shiseido eyebrow gel.

Have only tried Clinique's sheer lipsticks with succes after having to bin Mac, Max Factor, Revlon, Biotherm and Lancome due to having unusually dry lips it seems.
