Too convenient?

I'll take that with a side of microdermabrasion.

Every once in a while I am surprised by something and then immediately feel foolish for being surprised.

So, since I don’t want the future to get the drop on me, I’m going to make this call, and remember folx, you heard it here first — collagen injection drive-thrus. It’s coming, oh yes.

Yes, Laura Geller sells Face Spackle, Eye Spackle, and Lip Spackle.

Ok, I admit that I’m a makup bigot. I think that the right amount of makeup that a person should wear is “none.” I just mostly think people look better without it.

You shouldn’t associate anything that is meant for your face with somthing that is applied with a trowel.

Thanks to F. over at The Holophusicon for the tip.

“Beyond foundation… face spackle!”
