Another Lipstick Sacrifice (warning: this contains images of children and crimes against makeup)

lipstick sacrifice1

This picture remind me of a rhyme that Mum used to tell me. 'There once was a girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead...'. I'm sure you know how the rest goes! Miss MB has grown up with me writing this blog and she's very keen to join in these days. When the postman rings the doorbell she rushes to the door and shouts "present, present" at anything that vaguely looks like a parcel. There's no way that I can get away with smuggling the parcels upstairs to open later, as I once did. She wants IN!

I still enjoy taking pictures of new products in a pristine state and this incident happened as a result of my Ilia lipsticks arriving. She started opening them up and I could see disaster ahead. So, one of my other lipsticks had to take one for the team. Her application technique needs some......refining. I loved the fact that she started applying it to her hands, once she'd finished her face!

Fortunately the lipstick has survived to tell the tale. Though something tells me I might need to invest in some lockable drawers.

  4. the rhyme - do you mean curl in the middle of the forehead? Because what you've typed sounds somewhat horror movie-esque

    1. Ha ha!! Thanks for spotting my somewhat disturbing error! Yes, I definitely meant curl not girl. As you say, the mistake was much more terrifying :D

    I spy a beauty pioneer in the making... one day we'll all be walking around with handsticks in our purses.

    1. The lipstick was a tinted lip balm from Joe Fresh. The shade name is Blush Rose but it's a pretty sheer coral. It survived the episode, just but she was 'wearing' it again today.

  9. She is so flippin cute! I cringe to think of some of my expensive lipstick victims! Of course my daughter blames me because I left it where she could get at it. UGH! I will need locked drawers as you've said! Even my son want at them!
