Mojo Cosmetics-Titan-lipstick-valentine

I was sent this amazing lipstick awhile ago, sale and only rediscovered it lurking at the bottom of a box when I was *trying* to have a tidy up. (don’t ask me how that went okay) When I turfed it out I have to admit that I was thoroughly confused by what I found. Buried in a large box there was a case that looked more like a bullet than a lipstick holder. Inside, nowt, nada, empty… but a further rootle around unearthed a separate lipstick and a long string of metal beads or ‘silver pearls’.

Further investigation (the press release long since lost) revealed that these components were destined to be united, the ruby red lipstick slotting neatly into the casing, and the beads strung through the rung to create a necklace effect, though the lipstick can also be attached to your keyring or purse. The bullet container can be refilled with several lush shades of lipstick, or a concealer.

Now normally I would think something like this a completely unnecessary addition to my life (if highly covetable), but there’s something almost, dare I say it, sensible, about making a lipstick case that can be refilled. Or at least it would make sense if I never bought another lipstick in my entire life. The casing is designed to offer maximum protection, promising never to come apart in the bottom of your bag (oh yes, I know that one alright) and protecting the lipstick nestled within from floods, storms and earthquakes. Okay, I made that bit up, but the ‘aerospace grade alloy’ casing does claim to stop the lipstick from melting, which would otherwise surely be a danger nestled so close to one’s warm bosom. I must confess that I haven’t tried the Titan out yet cos it just looks so pretty all shiny and new, but I shall report back once I’ve plucked up the courage to once again rock that bright red lip vibe that I loved so much as a teenager.

When I revisited the Mojo Cosmetics website today I also discovered that they have recently added a few more items to what was an incredibly slim range. Of one lipstick. They now offer some stackable metal tins containing creamy eye powders and luxury nail varnish to match the lipstick range and which claims to make your nails stronger. I like the sound of that – my nails are incredibly weak and much as I like to wear nail varnish, if I use a cheap variety it will inevitably wreak havoc. (My new year’s resolution last year was to make more effort to wear some of the lovely nail varnishes I’ve collected over the years, but I had to give up after a month or so when my nails started to yellow and drop off. Like an old witch. Well maybe not that bad, but nearly.)

If you can get past the overeager use of flash on the Mojo Cosmetics website, you can enjoy the bold military styled ad campaign – an inspired move in this era of austerity chic. The lipstick is already a favourite of American bloggers but it is possible to pick up one in the UK and I’d say that a blood red Titan lipstick might make the ideal imaginative Valentine’s present. I’m sure quite a few girls would agree.

Further investigation (the press release long since lost) revealed that these components were destined to be united, the ruby red lipstick slotting neatly into the casing, and the beads strung through the rung to create a necklace effect, though the lipstick can also be attached to your keyring or purse. The bullet container can be refilled with several lush shades of lipstick, or a concealer.

Now normally I would think something like this a completely unnecessary addition to my life (if highly covetable), but there’s something almost, dare I say it, sensible, about making a lipstick case that can be refilled. Or at least it would make sense if I never bought another lipstick in my entire life. The casing is designed to offer maximum protection, promising never to come apart in the bottom of your bag (oh yes, I know that one alright) and protecting the lipstick nestled within from floods, storms and earthquakes. Okay, I made that bit up, but the ‘aerospace grade alloy’ casing does claim to stop the lipstick from melting, which would otherwise surely be a danger nestled so close to one’s warm bosom. I must confess that I haven’t tried the Titan out yet cos it just looks so pretty all shiny and new, but I shall report back once I’ve plucked up the courage to once again rock that bright red lip vibe that I loved so much as a teenager.

When I revisited the Mojo Cosmetics website today I also discovered that they have recently added a few more items to what was an incredibly slim range. Of one lipstick. They now offer some stackable metal tins containing creamy eye powders and luxury nail varnish to match the lipstick range and which claims to make your nails stronger. I like the sound of that – my nails are incredibly weak and much as I like to wear nail varnish, if I use a cheap variety it will inevitably wreak havoc. (My new year’s resolution last year was to make more effort to wear some of the lovely nail varnishes I’ve collected over the years, but I had to give up after a month or so when my nails started to yellow and drop off. Like an old witch. Well maybe not that bad, but nearly.)

If you can get past the overeager use of flash on the Mojo Cosmetics website, you can enjoy the bold military styled ad campaign – an inspired move in this era of austerity chic. The lipstick is already a favourite of American bloggers but it is possible to pick up one in the UK and I’d say that a blood red Titan lipstick might make the ideal imaginative Valentine’s present. I’m sure quite a few girls would agree.

This month sees the launch of a national campaign against BP’s funding of the highly controversial Tar Sands project in Canada.  We’ve written about Tar Sands previously at Amelia’s, prescription but here’s a brief summary with links at the bottom to far more in-depth information.

Investment into Tar Sands, also known as Oil Sands, have been called the “the biggest environmental crime in history”.  Tar Sands are petroleum-rich sands and soils found under the forests of Northern Canada.  The methods used to extract this oil are extremely polluting and energy consuming.   They include strip-mining, which destroys huge areas of land, and steam-drainage, which are both extremely energy-intensive.  The area to be mined will be bigger than the UK, causing the removal and displacement of hundreds of indigenous families.  The extraction of Tar Sands is a recent venture.  Extraction of Tar Sands, despite the ridiculous amount of energy used and the high costs involved, is now seen as more profitable due to the increasing cost of ever scarcer conventional oil. 

First Nations and Canadians have seen Tar Sands mining poisoning their water and land, and raising cancer rates of the local population.  During the Copenhagen talks in December representatives from First Nations organisation, environmental groups and NGOs along with journalists like Naomi Klein, gathered outside the Canadian Embassy to make their message in no uncertain terms.  There is a brilliant video on Democracy Now.

Saturday the 13th is the date of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Canada.  To highlight Canada’s hypocritical stance on environmental issues, campaigners will be gathering in Trafalgar Square for a day of ‘Oil-ympics’ themed activities.  See our listings page for the all the information.  The event will aim to increase awareness about the investment of BP, Shell, RBS and the Canadian Government into this environmental crime.

Held in one of Dalston’s creative hubs, diagnosis ‘The Shopping Village’ studios, a group of designers, fashionistas and vintage clothing aficionados got together for a crafty event. It was a day filled with chocolaty treats, cups of tea and of course, creation.

The aim of the event was to create sculptural pieces made from old SuperSweet magazine issues and discarded vintage clothing, to exhibit in an exhibition to be held in Beyond Retro’s huge Cheshire Street store in March. I had my piece planned out beforehand and had decided I would attempt to make a sixteenth century style neck ruff, from layer upon layer of concertina-folded pages of SuperSweet and pieces of fabric taken from vintage finds.

An adventurous idea perhaps, with the time I had to produce it! Nevertheless, in between playing dress up and munching on cookies I cracked on with my making. By the end of the day I had produced 8 layers, a good effort but not quite thick enough! Luckily I was able to take my unfinished creation home to finish later.

You too can take part by collecting some issues of ‘SuperSweet’ (maximum of 7) from Beyond Retro and making a piece at home. Perhaps you could hold your own event, complete with cookies and chocolaty treats?
