How is it still days from payday?
My credit card hurts, my shopping itch needs scratching and quite frankly, I've had enough of January to last me a lifetime.
Happily, I can still grab a treat because I've just discovered www.latestinbeauty.com (I love beauty prods but I know my finger isn't exactly on the pulse, OK?). So, you join up, then pick a skincare, fragrance, make-up, hair and body product samples and and the website sends them to you! As Alexander the meerkat said ad nauseum before I left the UK, simples! is that advert still on? I sort of miss him... all you pay is a single English pound, a golden nugget if you will, for P&P costs. Ahh, how much easier is that than having to go round Selfridges looking confused as to what to buy and yet affluent enough to afford the products once you've used up the free samples?

How is it still days from payday?

I have nothing to say except that this is BEAUTIFUL and I WANT.
The original shipment sold out within hours at Sephora when it launched last week but apparently they're taking phone orders for it tomorrow from 6am.
Better set that alarm...

I'm sorry, my posting has been ridiculously poor lately, it's just that, well, I've actually had loads of stuff to do. And that's just wrong. Anyway, I plan to dedicate myself completely to you from tomorrow (after lunch) but untli then, there are lots of other ways you can keep up with my non-beauty specific ramblings:
I tweet! Look for LindseyKelk - it's bizarre and often about WWE.
Lindsey Kelk again. Mostly about my books and occasionally WWE.
The websites for my books where I write a blog as the lead character, Angela.
And I have a full time job and a drinking problem* so that takes up a lot of my time too.
*Kidding. Ish. I don't have a problem with my drinking, anyway.

Now, my love for Urban Decay's 24/7 pencils has been wellllllll documented here and continues to burn brightly throughout the darkest of days but since I've gone all sorts of eye make-up crazy recently, I have to tell you about another love (yes, I'm being a bit of a whore but I don't care).
Benefit's BADgal pencil was one of my very first cult buys and I loved it. All through college and my early twenties, I smudged the shit out of that chunky blackest black pencil all around my eyes and dutifully spent hours removing it when I got home but after a while, I started to venture further afield and my BADgal pencil got forgotten.
Until, browsing the Christmas gifts at Bloomies, the very kind and helpful assistant suggested I try the new waterproof version. This pencil is entirely different from the original - yes it's black as black can be and it's still sexy as hell with hot pink and black colouring, but unlike the chunky, rockstar finish of the original, the waterproof version is long and slender and totally sophis. It has a great smudger on the end to help you get the roughed up look of the original but what I actually ADORE it for, is the thin, precise line that Does Not Move Once It Has Been Applied.
Seriously. At the moment I'm rocking my beloved Stash 24/7 pencil with BADgal waterproof layered over the top on the upper and lower lashlines and no matter how much the New York cold makes my eyes water, nothing budges. Team this amazing liner with two shades of MAC shadow blended together (Satin Taupe and Retrospeck), and I've got pretty, golden brown eye make-up with perfect black definition on the rims that make my blue eyes pop their ass off.
Good work Benefit. Good. Work.

It's pretty much on sale everywhere (or so they tell me, how would I know? I live in another country...) and dirt cheap at Amazon and also 86 in their chart which actually makes me happier than a happy thing.
Oh yeah, I wrote this.
And this one, which is kind of the prequel so you should totes get that too.
And I write the blog on the I Heart website.
And I tweet.
And sometimes, just sometimes, I eat and sleep!
Can you imagine...
