Sunscreen updates: future edition


I wear mascara all the time. Every day, all day. Often at night too. Have done for thirty years. 
Yes, this means that sometimes often I don’t take my mascara off at night. No, I haven’t died, gone blind, or destroyed my eyeballs. Even with waterproof mascara. And no, my eyelashes haven’t fallen out. They’re very healthy thank you, long and strong, plentiful though fine. I actually have to trim them, otherwise they get tangled up with the lenses on my glasses. Yes, for some people that is a problem. Don’t laugh, laughing at people is rude.

Here’s what SN have to say about it:“the ultimate nude lippie […] the result of endless test batches. It’s not too yellow, not too pink, not too purple, not too brown- it’s just right. It took me almost 6 months to develop and test this color- I had to invent a new way of blending pigments to make it, but it was worth it. If you want to try one of our lip glosses this is probably the one to start with. It’s honestly looks good on every woman I’ve tried it on. Warm, cool, pale, dark- it just works.”

All true. (How rare is that in publicity spiels?) And yes, it’s magic. Here’s why: Continue reading
