Awesome Sauce…

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 25 - 2011

…is one of those phrases you try to desperately scrub from your psyche, you can’t say it without rendering yourself a total twat.  It’s true, I’m sorry.  If it’s any consolation, I said it about 20 minutes ago and got a look from Mr. L that would have made Bowie feel uncool.  No mean feat.

Anyway, seeing as there’s no Lipstick League this weekend, I thought I’d list some blogs that I check daily.  I don’t have time to read many on a daily basis… I usually have a mega-fest once a week or something, literally devouring blogs in my path… but these are the ones I will get back out of bed to check if I’ve forgotten (ok, I’m lying but you get the idea).

LondonMakeupGirl – chief enabler and show-er of interesting stuffs.

Cosmetic Candy – the first British blog I read religiously back when it was called something really tacky like MostlyMakeup.

Lotus Palace – Kathi buys some seriously cool things.  I covet.

Eyeliner & Spray Paint - Robyn wears all the colours I don’t… it’s like my makeup alter-ego, plus she makes me laugh.

Beautys Bad Habit Blog – Lily has talentz, she makes me want to do crazy things like add jewels to my eye makeup and eat deep-fried ice cream.  Admittedly, it doesn’t take a lot to make me want to eat deep-fried ice cream.

Makeup For Professional Asian Women – Jamilla makes me want to buy stuff.  I like it when bloggers make me want to buy stuff.  Jamilla is an expert in this field.

Sailboat – Jennie’s blog transports me to a land of whimsy and cute jewellery, I always feel uplifted after a flick through the archives.

Makeup Your Jangsara – Makes me want to put makeup on at 2am, without fail.

Temptalia - It’s just total makeup porn isn’t it really?  I almost feel dirty peering closer at the screen to check out the swatches.

Designer Spray – Halima makes me want to be a cooler person.  It ain’t gonna happen so I read her blog instead.

Scrangie – Never have I bought more nail polish than after a few minutes spent over at Scrangie’s place.

Dempeaux – This chick would look good in a binbag and I want her wardrobe.  And makeup.  And she’s got a pet sheep that would totally love my back garden.

Ok, I’m gonna stop there… considering that there’s at least another 10 I could reel off without having to actually think about it, I’m re-evaluating my moans on never having enought time to read blogs on a daily basis…

I should stop bellyachin’ about that.

What are your DAILY reads?

    There’s only one that I must check daily and that’s Nouveau Cheap, only because she always has the best deals going on NOW, in the US. Lipglossiping is part of my regular rounds for the reviews, and making me drool over UK makeup I can’t have, but if I only have a few minutes to spare on the computer, then it’s Nouveau Cheap I’m checking out.

    Awesome sauce must be an American slang phrase, because it doesn’t sound weird over here. Maybe it’s like how Americans pick up British slang from the internet, but it comes out sounding pretentious when we actually say it to our real world friends and family?

    I wondered where all the hits were coming from on a Saturday! Thank you so much.

    As well as your good self, I check The Non Blonde, Modesty Brown and Visionary Beauty every morning. I also love Cosmetic_Candy (don’t tell her though), Dempeaux and Makeup for Professional Asian Women. Off to have a read of the other blogs you’ve recommended.

    In no particular order: You Darling! (Lipglossiping), Temptalia, Cosmetic-Candy, Beaut.ie, Cafe Makeup, BeautyJunkiesUnite, theBeautyLookBook, GlitterGeek, PolishGalore, and PinkSith. There are others but the huge link list is at home and connected to my blog. Plus these are the ones I know are not blocked at work.
