Oh, Happy Day!!


Today, the mailman delivered to me something fabulous!! It was my THREE CUSTOM COLOR SPECIALISTS ' custom-created lipsticks!! I wrote a post on October 1st titled "Really, I Can't Live Without My Lipstick" about the great Three Custom Color Specialists and how I order from them a shade called Once Bitten based on a sample of lipstick from the Diane von Furstenberg beauty line developed few years ago that was discontinued (boo-hoo). I recently ordered four (yup, 4!!!) new tubes (you get a discount if you order more than two, plus a $10 discount when you re-order, so it was worth it). And I desperately needed them - or at least one - I was all out. The only thing good about being out of your go-to-everyday lippie is that it forces you to find something else to wear until those precious tubes of colored happiness arrive in your mailbox. I found in my lipstick bin (yes - my own personal lipstick bin) one named True Mauve from Victoria's Secret that I was really happy to rediscover as it works perfectly with the smoky color palettes for this fall . However, I did not buy it recently, and, surprise, surprise, it seems it no longer exists. Anyhoo -- as nice as that color is, I am already sporting my custom-color creation. And all is right in my world again...Ok, well, at least in my lipstick world!
