Every Saturday kate2004rock brings you the best of Sephora as only an insider can!
People say the funniest things sometimes. One of my favorite “goofy little euphemisms” is that “Its the best thing since sliced bread.” I mean apparently, life was just so much harder when you had to slice (and bake) your own bread. But think of all the things that have been invented in any of our lifetimes that we don’t know how to live without. I mean, 15 years ago, no one had a computer in their house…let alone one for every person. We have 5 for 4 people. I remember when we only had ONE cell phone that my mom and dad shared. Oh wait, I remember when there were no cell phones. People had pens and paper next to the phone. It’s amazing to me what human ingenuity can come up with. I’m trying to think of non-electronic examples but I’m coming up short at the moment – there has to be something (I was born in the mid 80’s. I can’t help if I’m a child of the electronic age). Jet aircraft. That’s a long way from a covered wagon. (Ok, that’s not QUITE electronic – its physics and chemistry). Inoculations – people don’t get polio anymore! (At least not in the developed world…). I firmly believe that humans are capable of miracles.
Then again, in the warped mines of beauty-addicts, product junkies, and Sep-Whore-a’s alike, there are the products that we don’t know how we ever lived without them before! Urban Decay Primer potion, waterproof mascara, Orgasm blush. And I think next to be added to your list: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on pencils. They’re creamy gel pencils that really do glide on – but they DON’T rub off! They stall all day (and all night!). The come in a fabulous array of colors for ever mood and makeup personality. Plus they don’t drag on your delicate eyelids – they’re half moisturizing ingredients like Jojoba, and Vitamin E!
Here’s what Urban Decay has to say: “Glide on color that stays put for the duration of your non-stop, on-the-go day! These cushiony, creamy eye pencils deliver powerful, vibrant color that slides on smooth and stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries to a long-lasting finish that won’t budge. Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect. Truly inspired, these pencils go all day and all night.”
So megsmakeup.com friends, family, and fans: Are these the best things since sliced bread or what?
P.S. Happy Holidays to all of you and all of your families. Love, Katie (And check back next week for my 2007 favorites!)
