Lipstick, Better Than Peanut Butter!

Hello, hello my dear friend! So delighted to have your company. My goodness, it’s been awhile hasn’t it? I’ve been so busy sitting in front of my vanity experimenting with colorful lipsticks and eyeshadows that I completely lost myself in the moment of my Diva-Ness! Let me fill your cup and you make yourself comfortable. Are you good? Good!

Living in the OC there are so many beautiful places and beautiful faces. With all this beauty around me, I like to keep current on all the latest and greatest little beauty finds that keep my reflection in the mirror oh, so divine!

With summer around the corner, I like to keep my beauty routine to a bare minimum and instead, exude my natural exotic beauty with a few key items. I never said I was modest when it comes to how I look in the mirror... but hey, I DO love sharing beauty products that I can’t live without, at least until the next colorful lipstick rolls my way!

One of my favorite places to purchase beauty in a jar is at Target. I didn’t plan on Target for my beauty needs, I love the counters at the fancy department stores and the seductive fragrances that come with, but for some reason the cosmetic aisles at Target always avert my eyes from being focused on my ‘to get list’ of the day. It must be the lighting and colors that make my eyes do a double take whenever I pass these aisles! No wonder the cosmetic companies pay bank for their marketing, it’s working and their hypnotic affect they have on a lipstick fiend like me with all those wonderful colors... Accckkkk.... I just can’t take it! I’ll take one in Savy, one in Sweet Crimson, one in Berry Wine...

My list says ‘peanut butter’ and there is definitely not a jar of creamy Jif sitting across from Revlon. I know that. My kids know that. But I like to pretend that it’s just a quick pit stop and that the peanut butter is near by the lipsticks and I can see the peanut butter from the reflection of the cellophane wrapper that the lipsticks are in so that means the Jif is near by. But it’s not.

At the check out counter I have about a dozen new lipsticks and OH MY GOSH, I forgot the peanut butter! But now that I’ve spent all that time entranced by beautiful colors, I don’t have time to run back to get the Jif and the lines have gotten long. Oh well, I’ll put it on my list for next time!

Oh my, I’ve gone down the path of endless lipsticks and no peanut butter! I was supposed to chat about favorite beauty items for summer and somehow my delirious behavior took over with no self control from my part and now the pot is empty! The pot is empty? Oh good! That’s my cue to go fix my lipstick...

Ta Ta! xoxo


  1. You're too funny!! Bet, hey, you know what, I read that a cure for chapped lips is using peanut butter on them. So maybe that will help with remembering to buy the Jif-- not for sandwiches, but for luscious lips!

    On the other hand, if you are allergic to peanuts, as I am, then using peanut butter will be like getting collagen-injected lips: They will swell up all nice and purdy! ; )

    Keep writing because you are just SO DARN FUN to read!

  2. Hilarious! Glad to be in such good company -- I always get distracted by cosmetics.

    I really want to figure out how who gets to name all the different colors. It seems like it might be the coolest job ever!

    My current nail polish is Italian Love Affair by OPI. I'm a sucker for good marketing!

  3. I also get side-tracked by good marketing...we call a holiday when I leave Target spending $40 or less- it rarely happens.

    I don't buy lipstick tho, I have a really hard time finding a shade that looks good on me, right now I am too busy to put the time in it would require to look properly, sigh. I have to admit to doing a very un-OC thing, wearing a color that does not suit...I dab it off a bit so it's not so harsh. COCM- help me!! ;)

    nail polish has been my thing lately, I love the new bright colors and the yummy names!

  4. I've been on a Peanut Butter kick lately but I do agree with you, lipstick is better than PB! Keep the great posts coming girlfriend!-)

  5. Peanut Butter on lips?? LOL AOCM, you are like a refrigerator on my blog, constantly feeding my ego... for you, I bequeath my bottle of Coco Chanel perfume! xoxo

    With a blurb such as "Serving Your Style" of course my dear Fork, you and I are made for each other! Let me know when you get the job, Chief Color Namer so I can toast your accomplishments! xoxo

    HJ, you know how marketing is in the OC... you're just down the hill from me and I'm sure we've brushed elbows through the aisles at the La Paz Target! With all your busy mornings dedicated to homeschooling your kids, take the time to put on some lipstick... in sheer, you can't go wrong with sheer color... xoxo

    Char Darling, I always know that a Stylish Mommy like you has a ton of lipsticks in every drawer of your house! Cups up! xoxo

  6. You are so awesome that I've stopped by to give you an award! Come on over and pick it up!

  7. I love lipsticks. My lips are large, no botox needed. My mom, has very thin lips. Any lipstick I put on lasts all day because I'm not getting them wet by drinking and so on. My mom's lipstick comes off within an hour of putting it on. So she is always on a quest for stuff that will puff her lips and stay on. She is a bit bitter that mine doesn't come off. *lol* I know this because she tells me whenever I see her. Lipstick can be such fun.

  8. An award for MEEEEEEE?! Lindy, I'll be over in a sec... just as soon as I fix my lipstick!!!! xoxo

    Oooooh Bernie, you have those sensual, kissy lips that most women just die for!!! And yes, lipstick IS so much fun! xoxo

  9. I never forget the peanut butter because I don't wear makeup. Maybe that's the key to making shopping fun. I'll have to try it sometime!

  10. LOVE your blog! Found you through Epic Adventures of a Modern Mom. Hope you can stop by my blog and visit...

  11. Now Karen, the next time you're in Target I want you to go to the makeup aisle and find Boots No.7, that's the brand, the color I want you to pick up is "Entice" 20. It is sheer and very pretty. It will compliment any skin tone and you'll feel absolutely girly without making you feel uncomfortable. That's step number 1 and when you get brave enough, we'll go for more color. Cups Up! xoxo

    Welcome Penny Darling! I will stop by to visit just as soon as I powder my nose... xoxo
