The only mascara that anyone should be allowed to sell, anywhere. Here's how I discovered it:

I went to Nordstrom a few weeks back because I was in the market for a new mascara. Having done my research, I decided to buy Chanel because I read that their new line was *the best* mascara on the market. So, there I am, at the Chanel counter, chirping along with the sales lady, when she tells me that their mascara is out of stock. {whine}

So, I saunter on over to the Dior counter, where I was introduced to DiorShow (in brown), and I love it.


What can I say about Lola lipstick? Well, I can say that it's wonderful and silky, and that it's not tacky or sticky. I can say further that it's appropriately opaque and appropriately matte, and that it accomplishes both without making its wearer look like a hooker, circa 1992. Also, I can say that it comes in so many pretty colors that I had a hard time choosing which to buy (which is saying something, really, because there are some tremendously hideous lipstick shades out there).

I could talk for days about how much I love what's inside the LOLA lipstick tube, but what's really important is the tube itself. See for yourself here: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P35719&categoryId=C15111

My favorite shade: BITTEN!
