Hot Mama Tip

By Glinda

Getting the Munchkin up and ready for school in the morning is probably the most rushed part of my day.  And as much as I would like to simply show up at the classroom door (we have to sign them in and out) looking like I just rolled out of bed, I can’t seem to bring myself to do it.  I do have a certain amount of pride, you know.

Stila’s Convertible Color Compact

One of the best products I have found to ensure that I look like death only slightly warmed over is the Convertible Color Compact from Stila.   This handy mirrored compact comes in four flattering shades, and it is a lipstick and blush in one.  I use Camellia, and I do want to warn you that the colors look harsher inside the compact than they do on your skin.

I can’t tell you how many times I have looked in the mirror, muffled my scream of horror, and applied this stuff judiciously.  Voila!  Presentable in less than two minutes!

    I have no pride. I look like I rolled out of bed. However, the only one who really sees me is the valet dude who helps the kids get out of the cars (we drop off the tots assembly line style in a lane away from the buses) and the valet dude probably thinks I’m the biggest troll alive, one of these mornings, I may actually shower and freak him out by applying makeup.

    I use the same blush – great product! In addition to being a stand alone lip color it also makes a great base for gloss and lipstick.

    Oooh, I love this product. It looks super bright in the case, but blends nicely into your skin. I have a nice peachy shade that works well with my Morticia Addams-esque pale skin.
