My name is Dallas, and I have a problem


I spend way too much money on makeup. In a dream life I could be a beauty editor and test out tons of product b/c essentially I do that- but I don't get paid for it. I love makeup, b/c I'm an artist and I HAVE to have the perfect color and I become obsessed. I will buy every product until I find the right one, and then I move onto the next thing I need. Well, other creatives, or just makeup obsessed fashionistas, I have to share that after years of searching I have found the perfect nude lipliner.
You read magazine after magazine telling you this is a must have under every shade- even red! But then finding the shade that matches your lips...that's another story. I tried chanel, nars, stila, clinique...every brand in the book but they were either too brown, too chalky or left the inevitable "line". Yeah you know what I mean.
I finally came across the perfect one for me and wanted to share in case others of you have spent hundreds of dollars as well. Bobbi Brown , tulle brown, and it comes with the perfect sharpener so you don't need to make another trip when it dulls! love.

I am a complete beauty junkie as well :) Love it!

I have a beautiful nude lip liner and it is from MAC.

Also when it comes to lip glosses I am a complete MAC addict. It is the only lip gloss that I will use...hands down best color selection and consistency on the market. Just enough stick to stay on but not too much.

In my mind...perfection!

No worries, I'm a total beauty junkie as well! And confession: A couple of years ago I actually did a beauty internship (which was unpaid) but I LOVED LOVED LOVED getting to play with makeup/skincare stuff all day-- and then getting to sample some of it when I went home.

Oh wow. I am the opposite of a beauty junkie. I'm just hear to appreciate your expertise. Thanks for the lipliner tip.

I'm compulsive with makeup, I'm comforted knowing I'm not alone! :o) Love B Brown, will have to check out the liner...can you really have too many lip liners or eye liners? My personal fab is Kevyn Aucoin mascara...smudge proof even after a chick flick. btw, you have a lovely blog!!

Ha! I'm the same way about shoes. I try to stop, but I can't. If these are our worst vices, well, is that so bad?

P.S. Did I tell you I got your print? :)

i share your addiction! i loveee bobbi brown's stuff. however, my favorite products are probably nars blush in orgasm (looks good on everyone!) and mac eyeliner in icon eyes. i also love bare minerals bronzer - faux tan. it looks really natural.

ps - i love your blog!

that blush IS the best,it's my favorite. they just came out with a second called deep throat which is a bit of a pinker peach. Try that one too.
