The Bauhaus Kaleidoscope Lip Kit has already arrived (I picked mine up today). The Bauhaus Kaleidoscope Eye Kit will arrive this week. The new CHEM60 Pro-Peel & GLOW10ai Mask Set ($265), a Neiman Marcus exclusive, has also arrived. If you don't live in the area, Michael can always help you by phone. You can reach him at (202) 966-9700, extension 2258 or 2236. Here's there today, unusual for a Sunday.
I'll swatch my Bauhaus Kaleidoscope Lip Kit as soon as the sun returns. It has been extra-gloomy here. It looks like fall outside.
Here is the marketing blurb...
A unique, non-acidic daily peel designed to deliver all the benefits of a traditional peel without redness or irritation. This cutting-edge liquid treatment works with Bio-specific Peeling to attack only dead skin cells, Micro-extraction to lift surface debris, unclogging and purifying the skin of build-up, and finally Hydro-fusion to rebalance skin's hydration with enriched water. No rinsing needed. Apply and follow with your daily skincare regimen.
After I saw the promotion, I looked for the ingredients, trying to figure out how Blue Plasma could deliver on its promises - ever the amateur chemist. The ingredients aren't specific enough to identify salmon roe. Hydrolyzed Roe is listed. It's described as a skin conditioner, and it could come from caviar, which is endangered because of over-fishing. I was instantly turned off. I like to support cruelty-free cosmetics, and this one certainly isn't. Would you buy it?
Do you know how frustrating it is to shop for knee-high boots that are slim and fit skinny legs? I am ready to give up. I have searched high and low and cannot find a pair that doesn't look like galoshes on me. I shopped this weekend and last at Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and other stores, and I've finally given up. I wonder what I'd find if I Google "skinny boots." That may be next.
That's all for now. Hopefully, "the sun will come out tomorrow" (cue the music) and allow me to get a few photos to share my new makeup with you.
