My fav way to swatch lipstick

Cats are useful.

Can we say this is a tramp stamp? Or is that reserved for something else?










How convenient, a nail and lip swatch AND my "oops, I'm sorry cat" face.

Dermelect - Makeover, 3 coats
More (better) swatches can be found here.

Revlon (Colorburst) - Fuchsia (030)







No, actually I don't use the cat ... she just got in the line of fire.  But seriously, she makes such a great canvas.

Instead, I make my mirror dirty.

How cute is this, I mean really?!

*I need better lighting*













In case anyone was wondering, they are arranged same as above.  The Neutragena lippies are so saturated.  Color payoff is unparalleled.

I readily find these at Big Lots for under $2.  So, I have many ... MANY!











One day I will decorate one of my helmers in this manner. Yes ... YES.

  1. More evidence that we are related. I had a cat with a white muzzle and would kiss him almost every morning, all over his face. LOL!!!

  3. I have a white cat and a white dog. They are so tempting to use as a canvas, indeed! Once I had blotted my red lipstick using my dog's ear (he was getting in the way and wanted to play so I grabbed his ear with my lips pretending I was bitting him)! My mum nearly had a heart attack when she saw him as she thought he was bleeding!:D

    1. LOL. OOooo do they make that?! That would be tremendous. My sister just bought some color nail caps for cats. To protect furniture from cat scratching and such. I'll start with those and in the mean time keep an eye out for catstick ;)
