Fresh new look

A couple of weeks ago, a good friend of mine at church complimented me on my lip color and asked what color it was.

M:"Oh, thank you! It's actually a combination of things. I've got a lip-liner-"

F:"What kind of lip liner is it?"


F:"What brand?"

M:"Uhm...I don't know. It's really old. Then I have a kind of mauve-ish lipstick-"

F:"Oh! What kind is it?"

M:"Uhm... I don't know. It'll sound weird, but I got this huge box full of make-up for Christmas from Wal-Mart and I think the whole thing was pretty cheap. It's not like a real brand-name. I have no idea what kind it is, but it's actually nice, huh? I really like it. Then I just have a little pink lip gloss on top."

F:"You don't happen to know what kind of lip gloss it is, do you?"

M:"I'm so sorry, no I don't (laughing). It's also really old, like the lip liner. So...I guess, I wear old, cheap make-up, which apparently goes great together! Is that a brand? Look in the aisle for the Old Cheap line of make-up. It's fantastic!"

My friend has asked me twice since then if I've obtained the actual names of my make-up and would I please blog them? So, here they are. Who knows if they're actually sold any more, but if they are, you've got a great old look for less!

Lip liner pencil-N.Y.C. #956C (it's either N.Y.C. or N.X.C., it's kind of worn off, so I took my best guess).

Lipstick-The Color Workshop Lip Stick (It's so cheap that the colors don't even have names, so there's no way for me to tell you which one of the 5 it is. Like I said, they all came together in a big box along with 20 different eye shadow colors and other lip and eye-liners.'s the one that looks mauve-ish).

Lip Gloss-Karma Beauty, Chocolate dream. (You
may actually be able to find this. Maybe. I have no idea where I got it. Happy hunting, all!)

It's NYC, that is a make up company with standards close to Wet and Wild (which is 99 cents and what I wear). Here, Here! to cheap make up as long as it doesn't give you radiation poisoning or cancer!
