It’s my birthday!

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 17 - 2010

I’m 29, but I don’t look a day over 30.

The astute amongst you may have noticed that this isn’t my actual Birthday Cake (I’m sorry Evy… whoever you are).

This is because…

A).  Mr. L is a man

B).  Leila is too stupid to work out how to use a telephone to order me one

C).  I’m not *quite* sad enough to order my own makeup cake (just desecrate other people’s via Google Image search)

Still, as Mr L always says… “Don’t you already have enough makeup?”


P.S.  I don’t know about you, but that MAC looks kinda fake to me.

    Happy Birthday Charlotte!!!

  54. Ciambella says:

    Haha, I was JUST researching what fake MAC palettes look like, and the minute I saw that cake I thought to myself “hm, that looks like a fake MAC!” …And then I realized that, yes, it WAS a fake MAC, but not the kind of fake I was thinking of. This kind of fake is probably more worth the money than the fakes I was looking at before. Happy birthday to you!
