Iny, Miny, Miney…Forest


My first kiss of the week belonged to Dylan. But by Monday, I had my lips all over Chris. On Tuesday, I let Tyler steal a smooch before meeting up with Johnny for some serious lip action. Thursday was pretty busy, as I puckered up with Eric and David – at the same time! Today, I’m all about Forest, who gave me some sugar on my way to work.

Before your imagination starts running wild – allow me to explain. This post is a kiss and tell, but it’s not what you’re thinking. I am still very happily married, but my lips are having a love affair with Kissable Couture, a new lip gloss collection created by Keisha Nash-Whitaker and celebrity makeup artist AJ Crimson (whose clients include Fergie, Keyshia Cole, Christina Milian, Missy Elliot, and Alec Wek).

The fall collection, titled First Kiss, is comprised of seven shades; my favorite is Forest, a beautiful bordeaux, named after Keisha’s husband (the amazingly talented writer/director/and Academy Award-winning actor – yes, that Forest).

In the tube, some may find the ombre hues a bit daunting. But be not afraid – each gloss dresses lips in sumptuous color that is surprisingly wearable.

Kissable Couture is a must-have addition to every woman’s winter (makeup) wardrobe. And for only $22, everyone can afford to wear couture!

Buyer Beware

After reading that FragranceX.com sells discount skin care, body products, and cosmetics – in addition to fragrances – at up to 80% off, I couldn’t wait to log on and fill up my online shopping cart. So imagine my surprise when I found that not only are the discount claims highly exaggerated, but in many cases, their prices are higher than the retail value. Case in point:

Product: Clinique Perfectly Real Makeup
Retail Price: $22.50
Fragrance X Price: $30 (and they have the nerve to say that you’re saving 17%)


Product: MAC Clear Lip Glass
Retail Price: $13.50
Fragrance X Price: $17 (they say you’re saving 26%)

Product: Frederic Fekkai Apple Cider Clarifying Shampoo
Retail Price: $19.50
Fragrance X Price: $22.50 (they claim this is a savings of 18%)


Product: Philosophy Strawberry Milkshake Ultra-Rich Shampoo, Bath, & Shower Gel
Retail Price: $16
Fragrance X Price: $22.50 (you’re supposedly saving 21%)

Don’t get me wrong – there are many products on FragranceX.com that will actually save you a couple of dollars. But can you really trust an online merchant that would so blatantly jack up prices, making you believe that you’re getting a deal?

The bottom line is that if you choose to purchase from FragranceX.com, or similar discount websites, take precautions. All it takes is a few extra minutes to check prices and make sure that it’s you, and not them, who is making out like a bandit.
