wearing hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Muse
Sai maitoa? coral lipsticks on the brain?

Miksi kyllä. Kyllä vain. but what else is new?


Maybe it’s a genetic thing. I don’t know… but last night I was chatting with my mother on the phone about coral lipsticks and my 86-year-old godmother in the Philippines.

My godmother, whom I call Ninang (pronounced knee-nung), is the most glamorous gal I know, and my mother was telling me last night about how Ninang is apparently obsessed with coral lipsticks best now, LOL!

I guess it runs in the fam.

I think Ninang would thoroughly approve of hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick in Muse, the creamy coral lippie I’m wearing in these pics.

My heart fluttered the first time I saw it. Ei vitsi.

Then when I slipped it on — oh, my goodness! — I may have hyperventilated a little. The intense pigment, shiny finish and bright color were all too much for me (but in a “I’m perfectly ok with this” kind of way).

Now, Muse looks pretty dope on its own, but if you want to turn up the drama even more, try layering a reddish coral gloss on top, like MAC star quality Cremesheen from the A fantasy of flowers collection.

Looks phenom! — as does hourglass Nectar extreme Sheen Lip Gloss. (Do I need to post pics of these combos? let me know. I’ve been all about the combos lately.)

Wear time is common of the lipsticks in the Femme Rouge line. I get from 4-5 hours. Muse is also crazy moisturizing, so if your lips are forever flaky and dry like mine (sigh), you’ll probably appreciate the heavy hit of hydration.

The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious charm brands.

Not that it’s the ideal time of year for tans, but I think Muse does look particularly fetching with ’em, especially when paired with shimmery gold or bronze eyes. but seriously, why wait for warmer weather to wear it? Muse, with its classically vintage pin-up vibe, is eminently wearable all year long. try it with a thick line of black cat liner and a peach matte blush.

Killer, babe… Killer.

Ystävällinen naapuruston charmin addict,


P.S. Well, that about does it for Monday, babe. melkein.

Mitä aiot tehdä illalla? I didn’t work out this morning (yargh), which I hate, but I might try jogging a few miles on the treadmill tonight. Katsotaan.

I was surfing the Nordstrom site last night and came across this clothing line called Alo. Do you have any of their clothes? They look kind of Lululemon-esque.


I think this gray hoodie and these leggings are pretty cute…

Might be something I can bribe myself with. “Karen, if you exercise every day this week, you can get yourself something from Alo.” typically works like a charm.

P.P.S. Kävelevä kuollut? Did you view last night? Mitä mieltä olet? how about that very last scene at the door? Wasn’t that great?
