OOOh something i know about!
Lipstick: blistex, herbal formula, or medicated. My lips are rasberry colored anyway, and dry enough in the winter that it gets sucked up by the time i could get around to kissing anything.
And I haven't kissed any icons yet, but I have seen what various shades of lipstick can do (though ours are glass encased) I dunno...our Greek ladies dont seem to be too overlippified. Maybe it is a parish thing.
hair stuff: i have been using Freida's for Brunettes (expensive to me at almost $5 a bottle, from Target) and i like it, though i have very fine flyaway hair especially now in the winter. I use conditioner every day, i have to. I did like the Moisture Maniac stuff by Bedhead when i tried that but it just costs too much. I have to be careful or it gets greasy looking..at any rate i throw it in a hirclip most of the time anyway. My oldest daughter has long wavy gorgeous but VERY dry hair, and the stylist told her to only wash every other day at most. It seems to help.
You men, yes, your wives and girlfreinds and daughters do spend money on this stuff...but never ever ask how much, you really don't want to know. Just enjoy the results, and one more thing, if you can't tell she is wearing anything, be sure that she spent a long time getting it like that!
