The Make-up Breakup of 2014

With my 5,492 holiday Amazon orders, this little gem was included.
When I explained to Amazon that I had not ordered the Dazzle Stick, they told me to keep it. I was so excited to try out my free Dazzle Stick mix up. 
I couldn't wait to show off my new lip gloss to make-up guru at Frugalista Blog! "Lip glass is fancy," she said. "Lip gloss is the icing on the cake," she said.
If a little is good, a lot must be better. I loaded up my smackers with the Dazzle Stick.
Wait...this doesn't look right. 
Wait...this doesn't feel right. 
Maybe this is what a limp plumper is? Are my lips supposed to be tingling? Is the gloss supposed to look like toothpaste remnants?
Maybe I did it wrong. 
As usual, I read the instructions after the fact.
Apparently, the Dazzle Stick is for DIAMONDS! It says so right there...in big letters for all to see.
I had slathered my lips in diamond cleaner.
Meet me In The Powder Room today and share your make-up fiascos. In the mean time, I am breaking up with make-up.

  2. So, did you end up running to your jewelry box and wipe rings across your lips? ;-)

    1. I wish I hadn't panicked- I was too busy scrubbing my lips off to take a photo.

  3. I sprayed my expensive eyeglasses the other day with Zicam throat spray, thinking it was my specs cleaning solution!

  4. I frequently pick up Icy Hot from the bathroom cabinet instead of toothpaste. Icy Hot burns - probably not as much as Diamond Dazzle.

  5. I've used Scrubbing Bubbles bathroom cleaner as deodorant. Not that's there's anything wrong with that :)
