The Friday Forum - January 29

It's that time again. The Friday Forum is devoted to what you have to say about anything related to beauty. Let's chat!

Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Tell us about it! Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Tell us why! Do you have questions others might be able to answer? We can help! Want to talk about skin care? I'm game!

You can even share a darling pet story! I though this photo of a cat with his mouse was pretty cute. My boy catches mice on our screened porch and them brings them inside to play with them! You should see me trying to catch the mice to free them. I'm not as adept as he is.

Normally, I don't provide a Friday Forum topic or ask you a question to kick off the conversation. Today I will. I've written about a lot of Spring 2010 cosmetics collections. Have any of them given you the "I-wants"?

As usual, I will share beauty bits with you over the weekend. I'll put them in the comments, so check for free shipping offers and other treats from beauty companies. Who knows? I may be writing a lot this weekend, depending on how much snow we get Saturday. We will use the comments for what I always hope will be a fun and helpful exchange of information.

The microphone is yours!

Made a surprisingly good find at Target of all places. Jemma Kidd has a gloss stick lipstick in "A La Mode," it is a gloss but *not* frost or pearl taupe. It doesn't give you that "I wore foundation instead of lipstick" look that doesn't work in real life, but it does make lips a neutral, light, pretty shade that works great with a darker eye.

while i love looking at all upcoming designer makeup collections my budget usually allows only drugstore makeup (i do splurge on some departments store makeup/skincare but not too often). that's why i get excited when i find a good dupe for an expensive item i wanted. i love the shade of NARS glosses but hate the way they smell, so last week i picked NYC Sungold Pink and Neutrogena Groove, which are great dupes of Nars Orgasm and Turkish Delight. I am beyond thrilled, and my cheap glosses have a great smell too!

Hey there, Norma,

I love looking over the Jemma Kidd products at my Target. The "problem" is that they are so popular, they are half-way cleaned out (sold) at all times. I never get to see everything.

Long live lip gloss-lipstick hybrids! I love them. My favorite right now is Guerlain's KissKiss Strass.


I got some new glosses at the drugstore early this week - one of them was Neutrogena. Need to write them up over the weekend. Congratulations on your finds! I saw the NARS spring collection yesterday. Nothing appealed to me - maybe because I was tired and wanted to go home. I'll look again this weekend.
