I want you to do me a favor.

If you are at all interested in drug store makeup, please head over to my latest BlogHer BeautyHacks post and leave a comment.

I know it's a lot to ask, but I slaved over that damned thing--finding the pictures and uploading them was a big fat pain--but it's been up since last night, and no one has commented yet.

And now I feel like Stella Dallas's daughter that time when she was supposed to be having a birthday party and none of the kids she invited showed up.

This illustration is designed to make you feel really bad for even contemplating blowing this off. Also, I'm cross-posting this entry at What Not to Buy. This is the current incarnation of my moribund shopping blog, which bestirs itself every six months or so and tries to grab some attention, only to continue to be ignored. Kind of like John Kerry.

In fact, I think my shopping blog (which believe it or not, used to get more clicks than this one) is ready to have an affair to take some attention away from this blog. Which in case you didn't realize it, is the John Edwards of blogs.

Because see how utterly lacking in integrity I'm being? Shamelessly whoring myself out, expecting to get away with my self-promoting sleaziness because of my good hair and boyish grin? See? Exactly like John Edwards.

So anyway, please head over to BlogHer, and if it isn't too much of a pain, leave a comment explaining why mine is the single most insightful post on how to make the transition from late summer to fall makeup for $30 tops, including tax.

(Of course, this is assuming you already have foundation, mascara, an eyelash curler, a my-lips-but-better shade of lipstick or gloss and a second gloss in a darker shade. If you don't already have that, you are way behind, and you need to get cracking.)


  1. Consider yourself commented upon, ma'am.

  2. Tuli + fall makeup = FAIL!

  3. I can't help you on this one at all - I don't even wear make-up.

  4. Oh no! A commentless post! I don't wear makeup either, but maybe you will convince me.

  5. Hey, I visit your moribund shopping blog EVERY DAMN DAY.

    And I refuse to even READ about fall makeup until the temperature dips below 97 degrees here. Which won't be until late October. But I promise to comment THEN, okay?

  6. If you promise not to tell people I have gender identity issues, I'll comment up a storm.


  7. I'd like to take a moment to thank many of you for heading over to BlogHer to comment.

    And Joke for NOT COMMENTING.


Gentle Readers:

For the time being, I've turned off comment moderation. Please don't spam; it's not nice.

xxx, Poppy.
