Joyeux Noel, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, and Happy Kwanzaa to all the pretty people. Thank you to my wonderful readers for another wonderful year.
'Twas the "Pretty" Night Before Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
the only creature stirring
was the click of a MAC mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
With hope that creme blush would soon be there
Mom and daughter were nestled in their beds
With visions of Paris and shopping dancing in their heads.
When out on the roof there arose such a clatter,
I sprung from my bed to see what was the matter,
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutter to Tarte's Lights, Camera, Splashes!
With a little old drier, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick,
More rapid than eagles, the products all came,
and he whistled and shouted and called them by name.
Now Honoré des Prés, now Bobbi, now Leila Lou, now TokyoMilk and Estee
On Leonor Greyl, on CHANEL, on Curls and Laura Mercier
Becca foundation in the color called Mink
Products all over the shower and next to the sink
To the top of the porch
To the top of the wall
Now dash away! Dash away!
Products stashed in the hall
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk
And laying his finger aside of his nose
What a lovely scent, Fresh Sugar Rosé?
He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot
A bundle of products he had flung on his back,
and he looked like a beauty counter opening his pack
Santa came on his sleigh packed with beauty products galore
Carrying bags from Neiman Marcus, BlueMercury, Beauty.com, Sephora and more
I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight
May the lip gloss be with you all, and to all a good night.
Have a very Merry and Pretty Christmas
