over a weekend chat with one of my lovely besties, i got hooked on the idea of watching one episode of everyone’s favorite guilty pleasure, melrose place. i instantly regretted that decision, but came around when minutes into my mp experience, i watched ashlee simpson apply a gorgeous lippie from lancome that i knew just had to be mine. glossy ballerina lips a la hayden are so very in for fall and as a recovering (er, relapsing) former juicy tubes junkie, let me tell you that this pretty pink is top notch. lancome offers two jt formulas – jelly and smoothie. spring garden, above, is of the smoothie variety which offers medium coverage that’s not too midday board meeting and not too highschool dance. brava!
