It's not often I read beauty blogs (although there are some fab ones around). I have roughly 15 pieces of make-up in the world. I use five of them. They work, I like them, I don't feel like I need anything else, except the occasional whoosh of blue eye liner because the sun is shining.
But, I love Face Goop.
We wrote about the girls behind Face Goop last week. They're also the clever lady girls behind Cruel Tea, and E is the typing voice behind Belgian Waffling. She bakes biscuits that say 'arse' on them. I knew I liked her.
But M and E talk make-up, and lotions and potions. And the world of make-up hasn't really been the same for me since. It's fun. It's silly. And there's snail goo. They also introduced me to the existence of the baby sugar glider, which is the cutest animal in the world. Face Goop is the perfect make-up blog for Domestic Sluts. It gives a nod to the prettiness, it mocks all the science stuff no one understands, and makes you want to buy the shiny things that work. Without having to do any of the hard work yourself. They tried drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water a day, just to see what happens. See? They do all the hard work for you!
Besides, it's really really funny.
The blog is a bit like having a Skype chat with your best mate about that stupid lipstick the orange mac lady forced you to buy. But funnier. We don't often tell you about make-up, but we reckon after one too many gins, the Face Goop girls are just as rubbish as us at taking their slap off before bedtime. So I like them and look forward to their posts popping into my RSS feed. Go and pay them a virtual visit. If only to find out about the snails.
