Catching up

Wow! Has it really been 4 days since you’ve heard from us?

We wish we could say we’ve been busy trying to figure out why the world’s conglomeration of comment spammers decided to bombard our measly little site and tear it to shreds with its insurance quotes and fake compliments or why all our text seems to be coming up BOLD for no reason at all… but the truth is? We’re slacking.

Slackers are us.

Must be all that sunshine we were exposed to over the weekend.

Anyway, we have much to tell you, starting with how we’re loving Liz Earle’s Hot Cloth Cleanser more and more each time we use it. We especially like how it smells (ever so faintly) of Noxzema. In a good way!

Or how we depleted our first born child’s college fund at the BECCA counter. (Don’t worry, she totally understands the importance of having a mother with good skin.) (Also, the importance of having a mother that shares her beauty products.)

For all of you that wondered if Proenza Pink is the right color for dark hair/dark eyes, WONDER NO MORE:

Bree in Proenza Pink

Our 14 year old in Proenza Pink and gobs of rocker-chick black eyeliner (in case you didn’t notice).

Update: Bree is wearing clear gloss over Proenza Pink at the recommendation of the girl at the Lancôme Boutique in San Jose. Personally, we like it without the gloss (it’s very creamy and not at all chalky, unlike what we were expecting) but this girl clearly has her own style. Also? Her mother knows NOTHING. Duh!

  • that is a really pretty color! It kind of reminds me of Nars Turkish Delight lip gloss, which I adore. Is she wearing any gloss over it???

  • I adore that color, and guess what, it’s not being launched in Sweden. Sucky!

  • She must be wearing lip gloss–that color is very matte, isn’t it?

  • Hi Gilda, yes she’s wearing gloss over her lipstick. Surprisingly, this is very sheer and not chalky or as matte as I expected it to be. Very wearable indeed!

  • thanks for sharing bree’s photo. proenza pink looks very wearable. i had reservations about getting this shade but now i can’t wait to get my shipment!

  • i think gloss is the key to this lipstick, however still a fun barbie color (think mac barbie..)that may suit a younger crowd. she’s so pretty erika! i might try it, just to see what i think =)

  • I’m so tempted to buy this lipstick from that picture, but I think it’s probably already sold out. :(

  • I ordered proenza from the bergdorf goodman website on Thursday night and it arrived on my doorstep this morning (Saturday)!!! It’s still available and fabulous. Thanks for sharing the picture because that’s what inspired me to buy it. I’m a latina and didn’t think I could wear it. :)

  • Honestly you guys… I really didn’t like the lipstick. It looks a little bit $5 hooker for me. I’m sure she’s a lovely girl but I really don’t dig the lipstick. SORRY!!!
