Blogging at Carmine

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 28 - 2011

My first article for Carmine went live this week!  In it, take the opportunity to talk about some of the makeup crimes most of us have perpetrated at some point or other.

To take a read, click the image below…

What were your biggest makeup faux pas when you were growing up?

    Image isn’t clickable! :/

  2. Danielle’s right, it isn’t clickable, but I still found it! Very funny article! It reminded me of the changing rooms after PE at school – do you remember those Impulse vanilla body sprays? Five different artificial “vanilla” guff bombs, I think they’re probably banned now. You never see them anymore, anyway. And I’m right with you on the eyeliner too. Still do it, though. xx

    • thank you!

      Yes – Impulse was like high-end in the world of the body spray LOL. And I was looking at my ‘About Me’ picture as I was proof-reading the post thinking, “hmmm… that’s rather a lot of eyeliner considering what you’ve just written” LOL

      Glad you liked it x

  3. oh dear, forgetting to add the link wasn’t at all completely stupid thing to do *whistles*

    Would you recommend Carmine or glossybox? I’m already subscribed to glossybox but I’m not feeling over the moon with it. what are your thoughts on which is better?

    • Hi Saara,

      I chose not to accept samples of any of the following beauty boxes (glossybox, boudoir, feel unique, carmine) simply because I felt there were enough reviews around already. I’m sorry I can’t give you a comparison though :(

      Carmine is great (I get 4 boxes a month) so far, but the October box was the first one so it remains to be seen if it will stay that way.
