Has it been a month since I last posted? Yes. Let's leave it at that.
I have managed to sustain my irrational lipstick addiction. The brick red I was using is being discontinued, which sent me into a tailspin and my desire to find a replacement kicked into overdrive. I actually waited for daylight to swatch the reds I ended up with -- the first being my original matte brick red.
kvd - hexagram
wnw - spotlight red
milk - name drop
wnw - purty persimmon
makeup forever - c406
I was in Sephora and -- clouded by my red lipstick famine urgency -- bought two lipsticks that were labeled vegan. One, Milk, I'd seen mentioned in a vegan makeup FB group. The other, Make Up For Ever, I couldn't recall. As it turns out, neither have a clean bill from Logical Harmony. So I should have held off! Milk is on the Gray Area List. Make Up For Ever is on the NOPE List. Hopefully this will teach me a lesson. I probably could have made it work with mixing Hexagram and Purty Persimmon but, nope. I just had to search for the holy grail with panicked urgency.
In other news, I've been helping take care of this community cat group in my neighborhood. Two groups, actually. One set of cats is already Trap-Neuter-Returned (so they are all altered and eartipped). The other set of cats is not. I am seeing a bunch of unaltered cats, kittens and injured cats. *sigh* In the picture below, the black cat leaving the feeding station is limping and has a swollen face. Gotta see if we can organize a TNR project there and get him some much needed medical care.
And here's a camouflaged baby cat. Already not social to people at 3-4 months old. (They grow up so fast, taught by their feral-behavior moms.)
