It’s an old but true analogy. Being shipped new products to play with when you are a beauty junkie through and through is like being a kid in a candy store. With ever- growing piles of visual delights, you never know what to ‘taste’ next. And everything looks so sooooo good.
For the long holiday weekend, I decided to pack a mini kit of brand-new still-sealed goodies and take it down to Long Beach Island (NJ) where me & the bf holed up in a gorgeous rental house with 4 other couples. After our fill of sun, while some were glued to HBO’s Newsroom (it played on loop for nearly 4 of the 5 days) and others headed out clamming to bring home fresh fish for our next meal and still others carefully crafted teams for Fantasy Football Leagues – I stole Miss Gill away and let her have at it.
Because like the best dessert, nothing this decadent is not meant to be shared.
We even missed the perfect view of a spectacular fireworks show from our rooftop deck to indulge.
Out of the makeup mountain, Gill picked the products and shades that called to her.
I took out my brushes, sponges and tools and painted them on.
Together we savored the single only calorie-free treat of our weekend!!
It was oh-so-satisfying…
