How many of you follow Doe Deere Blogazine? (to those who don’t – why not?!) Those who do will be familiar with her Lime Crime makeup company: Their slogan is “So bright, it’s illegal!” Those who know me are not surprised at this affinity. To check out Lime Crime, click the link above.
So when Doe announced her new lipstick line based on a technicolor future of holograms and unicorns, and, more importantly, her vignette-writing contest with its prize of a free shade of the new lipstick, how could I resist?! I knew I had to submit SOMETHING. Struggling with hundreds of ideas zipping around my brain on Beautiful Rockets , I finally found two that I could sufficiently expand upon. And one of them was chosen!
My winning vignette for the shade Airborne Unicorn:
The Airborne Unicorn had been hailed by the presses as the new “It” bar, though really it was a nightly gala on board a huge, neon spacecraft that loaded up with party-goers before spending the night lazily floating among the stars. The main room was painted a glittering purple, a somehow neon lavender, and the hovering disco balls that flitted around the crowd splayed rainbows on everything – playing with dancers’ hair, flitting over the collarbones of women leaning seductively against the bar. A waitress in a glittering, curve-hugging white tutu mini-dress, the rainbows playing on her cheekbones, offers two newcomers – first night aboard, how exhilarating! – a tray of truffles and perfect, hovering spheres of liquid. She batted her rhinestoned eyelashes and her lips curved into a sensuous smirk as they took the signature cocktail, named after the bar itself. The girls pressed their lips against the spheres, caressing the mirror-cold surface as though kissing the drink, and breathed deeply the smoke-and-air-and-liquid concoction. It tasted like flowers and cotton candy, and when they raised their heads to look around, it left a purple glaze, the lavender both pastel and neon at once, coating their lips in the signature color of the Airborne Unicorn.
I am so honored!! Thank you so much, Doe! To see the other winner, click the image above 🙂
Now… which color do I choose? Suggestions, anyone?
