I was at Sephora recently (heaven!), and got Stila lip glaze stick in Starfruit, a lovely pale but bright pink that works perfectly with a black smoky eye. It is a great alternative to the usual nude tones most people pair with a smoky eye. This does come in large stick form, and included with is a sharpener. Stroke of genius on their part. I, of course, have already managed to lose it somewhere in my incredibly small home. I think the cat may have hid it, in an oh so obvious protest against the amount of time I spend with my makeup and not with her! The lip glaze is like a gloss, medium shiny, and stays on fairly well. I did notice that if you apply lots of coats on top of each other, it becomes slightly tacky or sticky, but that is true of all glosses. Smells Delicious too!
$15.00 at Sephora

I get my hair done by the incomparable Lauren at Caporicci Sweet Salon on NW 23rd and Savier. It costs $35 for a cut and the color depends on how long your hair is. I always get lots of compliments on my hair, and I think it looks great! If you are trimming down your budget, try bishops or rudys, they are very affordable and give you free beer while you wait!
