Cami, Becca and the unavoidable love story.

Occasionally I hit this bumbling rut with words where I'm clearly at a loss to say anything of use, just because I love to write, and unless I have something to say in a suitably overly-complex and verbose way (I'd hesitate to say 'eloquent' or 'whimsical' as those sound far too complimentary), then I don't actually want to say anything.

So, I found a perfect product from a new brand and I'm completely in love, because I'm struggling to find the appropriate words to describe and quantify my love for it. There seems to be this void in syntax and vocabulary to describe the perfection that is Becca's Lip and Cheek Crème in Tuberose.

It might look little, but in the pot there is some definite punch hidden beneath its sweetly coral contents. It's a pigmented creamy product, which blends easily without being sticky or greasy. On the lips, it's beautiful, particularly if you coordinate it with the same on the cheeks for a perfect Spring flush, although it can be a little drying. I love it so much it spends its days being transferred from dresser to handbag and back again; it never, ever ends up being put away. I ordered some more Becca products straight off the bat... I'm sensing a dangerous affair.

The thing is, it was a throwaway purchase whilst buying another coveted item (which, incidentally, I'm still eyeing suspiciously while using this second-choice one with complete aplomb), and I didn't really expect to dreamily envision candlelit dinners and a photo album filled with snaps of us enjoying ice creams in matching sweaters. Sorry Guerlain Blush G - I think it would be better for both of us if we were just friends for now...

Same again, in different lighting with a touch of saturation to show the colour.
