Mud on Your Face

Lei ChicTo the ones piling up in my makeup drawer,

When I spotted you across the cosmetic counter, I thought it was love at first sight.

But at home I saw your true, washed-out colors. When I got weepy, you ran (in black lines down my cheeks). And let’s face it, most of the time I gave you the brush off because despite what the girl with neon-blue eyelids said, you didn’t go with everything.

It’s time you took a powder. I’ve found a new favorite that’s making me glow all the way.

Its name is Mud, a line of cosmetics from the Make-Up Designory school in California and New York. Developed by makeup instructors for professionals, it really gives me what a girl wants.

The rich, velvety eye shadows glide on without fading. The glosses give great lip service for hours without feeling sticky. And unlike our unsatisfying affair, there are no guessing games. Every product wears its instructions on its sleeve: how to apply it, which tools to use, and which liners and shades will be a perfect match.

To sweeten the pot, I’m dealing with less baggage. Mud’s sleek packaging slips easily into my evening clutch.

So you can tell this is more than just a blush.

I think we have the foundation for a rosy future.

Mud is sold at Fashionista’s Market, 1185 Bethel St. and at the Bella Torre Academy, 98-199 Kamehameha Hwy. in Aiea. Call 808.484.4871 for more information or visit Mud’s website for a look at the entire line and tutorials.
