Requested: Benefit Pillow Talk vs. Clarins Paradise Pink

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 8 - 2011

This is for the lovely Deborah at ThisWeekIHaveMostly… who requested a couple of lip swatches before the weekend from my recent Hot Pinks post.

Hope this helps D!

.

Oh and just because this post is super short, I’ll take a moment to tell you about yesterday. If you follow me on twitter, you may have already heard this story… so move along, nothing to see here!

So anyway, potty training.  I haven’t actually started the process… I’m just testing the water and seeing how she reacts to the potty/having her nappy off/talking about it etc.

Well, she crapped on the floor.  I don’t know why I didn’t prepare myself for something like this but I should point out in my defence that I’ve never owned a pet that’s crapped on the floor either.  I walked around the corner to see L pointing at this (impressive) turd, look of abject horror on her face while she explained to me breathlessly that she was just playing games when a coconut fell out of her bum.

Laugh? Cry? I did a bit of both to be honest.

Have a great weekend lovely people!

    Paradise Pink looks lovely on you – its a bit cool on me. But what I’m REALLY amazed with is how some of you manage to have the same expression/look in all photos like you have here. Its like you just swapped out your lip colour! I can’t seem to do that, no matter how I try :( And I laughed and laughed at the coconut :D I’m glad I don’t have to deal with that :P

    Love the Benefit lippy, I think I may need to start trying their range. And a coconut just cracked me up! I’m glad I haven’t quite reached potty training age with my little boy just yet!

    Aah, potty training. :) I’m so happy I don’t have to do it again, done it 3 times already. :) Mine weren’t too bad, but still. However, Leila’s expression of a coconut falling out of her bum is just so cute and priceless. :D

    And by the way I love Pillow Talk! <3

    I’ve got a friend who is potty training her little one… she ran out of the supermarket the other day when she heard her usual catch phrase of “WOAH DADDY!” and then a little puddle turned up on the floor…

    My screen is too small. I want to see the photo of the five pink lipsticks next to the photos of you wearing the lipsticks so I can compare colours. Can you move them closer please?

    Lol!! Bless her, that’s so sweet! Potty training was possibly my least fave part of parenting, but most people I know found it ok (not that I’m jealous…..)
