Bye Bye, BeautyMecca

Now, I'm not giving up beauty blogging AT ALL but I am sort of giving up this blog.
From now on, all my content will be over at www.LindseyKelk.com - as if I would stop rattling on about mascaras... shame on you for even thinking it!

See you there, 'kay? 'Kay.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof

Now, I never hear a lot about Chanel's make up range. I don't know if that's because they don't court bloggers so much it because the higher price points put us off their products but I was recently tempted to give some of their products a go and maaaaaaan, I wish I hadn't.

I was at a friend's wedding about a month ago and couldn't help but gush over my old roommate's eyeliners (because that's who I am). I was by that girl's side all day long and even though it was on the inside lower rim (my make up nemesis), it never smudged, never faded, never looked anything less than perfect. When she told me it was Chanel (just like her handbag, the cow) I knew I had a date with the Bloomingdales counter. Sure enough, days later, I trotted in and parted with $60, coming away with the black and the espresso waterproof eyeliners.

Not one to do things by halfs, I immediately got on a plane to Texas and put these bad boys to the test. 90 degree heat? Check. Twelve hours driving around hill country in a tiny Fiat 500 with a boy? Check. Swimming pool and frozen margaritas? Check, check, check. And did these eyeliners smudge once? No. No they did not. They didn't smudge when I went dancing, they didn't smudge when I fell asleep in them. And yet, if you wanted to smudge them out into a beautiful smokey eye, they did exactly as they were told and stayed exactly where I put them.

And that's why I'm sad. Because now I'm going to have to spend $30 every time I want a new eyeliner. Damn you, Chanel.

John Frieda's California Waves

I love getting my hair did. It's probably up there in my top ten things to do along with shopping, sleeping, petting kittens and sitting in the sun by Barton Springs with a good book. But who has the time or financial wherewithal to get their hair did or go to Austin, Texas, whenever they want to feel better about life?

Happily, the lovely people at John Frieda have put a shit ton of videos up on YouTube to show us how to make our hair pretty at home. Bless 'em. I like the California Waves because I'm growing my hair out a bit at the moment and I've been having an arse of a time getting any texture into it - straight, straight, straight. But now, wavy, wavy, wavy.

There are heaps more on YouTube, let me know if you try any of these out!
