So this is a departure from my usual. Most of you know I write about writing, or about parenting.  But…here’s another side of me.

I’m going to make a sweeping generalization and guess that many of the visitors to this site, who happen to be male, will want to stop reading right about


See, this post is going to be all about…da da dum da…cosmetics. If you are one of those amazing women (and I secretly admire you if you are) that cares not a bit about the wonderful world of face paint, you’ll want to stop reading now, too.

Okay, so that leaves the rest of us…those who are interested, or who (like me) are fascinated with the idea of transformation via lipstick, a smudge of color placed smartly on the eye or the cheek, lashes fanned out in thick black mascara, a bit or razzle dazzle sparkle pretty pretty…oh make me stop or I’ll just carry on.

Get it? I love, make that lurve, cosmetics. I love to play with palates of color and with the illusion of good skin, bright eyes, a pouty mouth. For those who are interested, check out my cosmetics reviews at:

These are my reviews of various cosmetics, and I love the site If you are (even remotely) interested in makeup…check out this site.

One thought on “Makeup.

  1. MJB: OK, here’s one thing I could write about, inspired by your post: things grown up people should know but don’t. We need refresher courses for those of us who missed some of the key bits of info transmitted at specific points during adolescence, and never on offer again. Like, makeup! I wasnt’ a girlie kid and my friends and I never sat around doing makeup. I wear it now, but I’m pretty limited in my abilities, so I only do what I know how to do. I wish I didn’t wear any (its so pretty to see plain skin, if it looks nice) but I do think it improves my appearance. I only wear a little. So, what else? I’d like a little course on finance and accounting, one on electricity, physics, how the things that I’m surrounded by all day work. Etc.
