Special Beauty Bulletin: Don't Go Pigment Happy!!!

Posh's new neighbors need a makeover, fast.

Posted by The Budget Babe's Beauty Expert

Please tell me I wasn't the only person to watch Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham's Coming to America (amusing show btw, and she rocks some fierce shoes!).

Alrighty then.

Amid the British invasion insanity, Posh brought to light an important issue while visiting with her neighbors the Beverly Hills Socialites: frightening amounts of red lipstick. What are these women thinking? Just because you can afford to go through a tube of lipstick a day doesn’t mean you should.

Where those with money seem to fail, we the budget babes of the world must step up. Less is often times much more, so please note that unless carefully planned out (i.e., goes harmoniously with other minimal makeup) please avoid fire engine red lipstick.

Instead, opt for L’Occitane Tinted Balm in Wild Rose. Made with beautifully soft shea butter, this tinted balm has just a hint of pigment that works on both cheeks and lips for a natural looking color (natural being the operative word). It's perfect for summer and literally lasts forever. I’ve had my diminutive jar for almost two years and use it daily on my cheeks, which makes it a steal at $13.00. Also comes in lighter and darker shades to suit your every need.

Keeping you lovely for less,

i admit i watched part of that episode, although i'm not proud of the fact. what i found depressing was the obsession with a generic surgery-enhanced look. they all had the same faces, the same bodies, and there was nothing real about them. sort of stepford-wives-gone-bride-of-frankenstein.
also incredibly stupid - proving that life is not fair.
posh came off as the only 'natural' person in the bunch.

Yeah, you know you've entered the twilight zone when Posh is the normal looking person in the room! hahha!
