Makeup Monday: Tom Ford Noir Absolute for Eyes Eyeliner

Well, helloooooo lover...

Oh, Tom Ford Noir Absolute for Eyes gel eyeliner ($35), how do I love thee?
Let me count the ways:
1) Your blue-black gel formula is the most gorgeous, flattering shade, for all skintones and eye colors, I’ve ever found.

The blue-black pigment is light-reflecting!

2) You last & last & last & last. For hours and hours. Oh, Tom! I could make a lewd joke here but I will refrain.
3) The blue-black pigment makes my eyes look whiter, brighter and – dare I say – younger!
Yes, please and thank you very much!
4) Easily applied, your gel liner glides on and can be applied as thin or thick as my heart desires for any occasion.
5) I can smudge, smudge, smudge to look sultry and bedhead sexy but…
6) Once applied, you won’t smudge a smudge! Love that!
7) I only have to buy you but once a year. And that is unheard of for liner! You don’t dry out, flake out or leave me but stay smooth, steady, strong and good lookin’.
Just like I like my men!
 Now, pardon me as I head off to read Fifty Shades of Grey, Book 2: Fifty Shades Darker in the tub.
BF Asks: How do you like YOUR men, um, I mean liner? Oh, let’s be honest! I wanna know how you like ‘em both!

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Mama Mio Omega Body Oil

In-My-Tub-Tuesday: Mama Mio OMega Body Oil ($35)


I’m gonna keep this simple and sweet just like the pretty pink product that sits on my vanity sink: Mama Mio Omega Body Oil.

Y’all know I love oil. As I may have mentioned before, my feeling is that women don’t use enough of it.

Why? Fear. Displaced fear. And when 30 comes around, we start seeing the results of our oversight. Fear of what, you ask? Oh, I’ve heard everything: “it’s too rich”, “it’ll break me out”, “I’m oily”, yada yada yada.

It’s not true, ladies. None of it. It’s unfounded fear but nevertheless there is fear out there of oil. Of the good stuff that’s proven to keep your skin younger looking.

But with Mama Mio’s Omega Body Oil, fear not, fair maiden.
Appropriately named as it contains argan, sweet almond, jojoba and safflower seed oils with vitamin E, Omega Body Oil melts into your skin in under 15 seconds flat.

They even call it fast food for dry skin! And this fast food will actually make you look BETTER!! It is your “Gatorade” for instant skin hydration.

Applied right out of the shower (or bath, in my case) onto damp skin, your fear has no place to fester as you are left with only gorgeous, glowing, glistening, youthful, soft and supple skin. The results are instantly apparent making it ideal for date night or any night!

I oiled up before a party last week, wore a dress with spaghetti straps and, kid you not, received over 5 compliments in an hour about my “glowing skin”, “soft skin”, “young skin”. Ok, I admit it, that sold me. Compliments get me every time.

So as Gwen stefani said, a few years back,  Whatcha’ Waitin’ for?



p.s. Besides the instant results, I love the subtle scent and I adore the packaging. I’m partial to pink, y’know?

BF Asks: Do you have a fear of oil or have you seen the glowing light?
