Be Prepared

You wouldn't have guessed that women are eschewing lip gloss for lipstick through the introduction of new products from Trish McEvoy and Carol's Daughter. This post will deal with the Be Prepared Pink Compact from Trish McEvoy; a subsequent post will deal with Candy Paints from Carol's Daughter.

Be Prepared Pink Compact from Trish McEvoy

Trish McEvoy is a New York-based makeup artist with an eponymous makeup line. She's already shrunk makeup palettes to the size of a credit card. Now she's squeezed eight different shades of lipgloss into this 2" x 1" compact. The shades range from faintly there neutrals to bright pinks like Sparkling Pink and Tropical Pink (flamingo pink) ... in other words, a whole wardrobe of shades for every mood and outfit. You can carry this compact with you in your purse and "be prepared" for any occasion.

The real meaning of "Be Prepared"? Net proceeds from sale of this compact support Girl Scouting! You can forego Girl Scout cookies (with the exception of Thin Mints and Samoas, my favorites) for this less caloric means of supporting Girl Scouting.

Girl Scouts was the best thing I did while in grade school and possibly in my entire life. Shoutout to my friend Tina:

Tina, if you find this blog, I appreciate all the work that your Mom did as a Girl Scout leader, particularly when she invited me to accompany another Girl Scout troop on its weekend camping trip. Thanks to your Mom, I completed requirements for five merit badges that weekend.
