InStyle, April '08: Part II


The title of this post is kind of a misnomer, because what I'm writing about is actually found in the June 08 issue of InStyle. But, as it directly relates to the InStyle, April '08: Part I post, that's how it's gonna be. In the Part I post, I stated that I was going to write to InStyle because I HAD to know what Renee Zellweger's pretty, pretty, pretty lipcolor was. Well, they answered! However, they did not print my personal letter, but, rather, gave out the info in their Where Can I Find... section. Which, that's cool. They didn't have to print my letter. I mean, what I wanted was the info, right? I didn't need to see my name in black-and-white on the fine pages of InStyle magazine. No big deal. Ok, so that's the well-mannered gracious me talking. Now here's the real me: damn, damn, damn, why couldn't they have just printed my letter?! How cool would it have been for me to be able to tell all my buds - hey, there's my name in a major magazine. Now, I realize it would have just been for a letter, not an article that I wrote, or one that had been written about me (ok, that's a stre-e-e-tch, but this is my blog and I can write whatever I want, no matter how preposterous). But still. It would've been fabulous. Yes, indeedy, it would have.

ANYWAY...the answer to my lipcolor question from InStyle is as follows: Ms. Zellweger is wearing a Paula Dorf lip liner in Goddess with Laura Mercier Creme Lip Colour in Discretion. Based on the picture of the lipstick, either the cover shot of Renee was touched up and her lips made a little brighter, or the picture of the Laura Mercier lipstick is not color-corrected because it looks very nude/beige, while Renee's lips looked coral (to me at least - maybe I need to be color- corrected). And, as a matter of fact, I just checked out the LM website where the shade is described as beige-nude-creme, so I'm guessing Renee's lips were "coral-ized". Guess I'll have to make a trip to Nordstrom (oh, darn) to check out the Laura Mercier lip colour and see for myself just what it looks like in real life.

ahhh! that's so cool they answered your question! but I feel you it would've have been WAYYY cooler to have seen your name in print. I tried that once but it was actually an angry letter so I doubt they would've put that in lol...

DOVE Giveaway!!!

On May 1st, I wrote about the new DOVE Ultimately Visibly Smooth Wild Rose Anti-Perspiring/Deodorant (click here to read). Well, it's been almost 8 weeks since I started using it, and I'm happy to say that overall I'm really pleased with this new deodorant. It has made the hair softer and, surprisingly, I did notice that my underarms do look better and smoother. I've always had issues with that, because as someone who is pale but has dark hair, even when freshly shaven my underarms still didn't look quite hair-free (this was particularly angst-inspiring during my teenage years). But the other day I noticed my underarms looked really good and didn't have the pit-version of the five o'clock shadow going on. Yay!
DOVE wanted to give you the chance to try this new product (if you haven't already!) and is going to give 2 lucky readers a full-size DOVE Ultimately Smooth Wild-Rose Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, along with coupons for $2 off future purchases of Ulti…

Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale

It's not just bras and panties that are marked down. Check it - makeup and other beauty products on sale for 75% off!! That is one secret I cannot keep! I wasn't planning on stopping in, but had to stop at the mall today to shop for a Father's Day gift for my hubby from our 4 year-old (another gift, actually, to go with the Elmo t-shirt we got for him last week. So cute!). But then I saw the sign for the Semi-Annual Sale and it said makeup on it, so into the store I went. I could have bought more, but I had a hungry child with me, though she did enjoy looking at all the pretty colors of body lotion and shower gels, so that kept her occupied,oh, for about 5 minutes. Anyway, I managed to score 4 products for $12.50. Sweet. And that included 2 - that's right - 2 full-size Very Sexy lipsticks. Uh huh. I also bought Bare Bronze Self Tanning Body Spray with Buriti Oil and an Everything Refresher Spray. The Bare Bronze was the splurge at $4.50. I am digging the Bare Bronze b…
