With Real Crushed Diamonds by Cavewoman
I should call this post 'things you find when you are looking for other things.' I ran into Victoria's Secret a few days ago, a store into which I rarely venture, since most of their offerings just don't suit me very well. I went in to take a sniff of one of their fragrances, which didn't impress me very much since now I can't even remember the name of it. But in our local VS store, there is a small display of the store brand cosmetics. I was browsing and testing colors, and I happened upon a small square box called Very Sexy Diamond Lust Face Powder. There was no display or tester for this powder, so I asked the SA nearby if I could open it to see what it looked like. She said 'Of course!' and came over to look, too. When I opened the sleek black compact, I was giddy! The pressed powder is composed of different shapes and sizes of 'gems' with the thinnest black 'facet' lines, and shimmery (I'm hooked now) shades of rose, pink, copper and gold. I caved. It cost barely more than drugstore powders these days, and even though I have no idea what I am going to do with it, it is at least a new item in my compact collection. On the edge of the box, these words are printed in red: 'With real CRUSHED DIAMONDS' -- I wonder what diamonds are going to look like on my face. It reminds me of the Guerlain primer with the gold flakes suspended in the serum. Where did those gold flakes go? I never did figure that out. I'll let Blogdorf readers know if my face starts looking like a DeBeers ad after I try the new powder.
That is, if I can bear to use it.
