About Me

I'm Pink Sith. A.K.A. Elvira (heyelvira at pinksith dot com)
I am a child of the 70's but I think I stopped maturing at 25 so I'll just stay here. It's better than being 40. I like to say I'm 25 with 15 years of experience! I love Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and general Geek centric books and entertainment.  My love of Darth Vader from the Star Wars Trilogy (...yes. I said Trilogy. I'm pretending those other three movies never existed) lead to my blog name.  For the unenlightened, Darth Vader is a member of The Sith Order.  This is a sect of Force-sensitives (Usually former Jedi, but not always) who utilized the dark side of the Force.   Pink is a girly color and That's how I came up with Pink Sith...besides Taupe Sith didn't have the right gravitas to it.

I work a full time job, in the Washington, DC area, hiring really smart people to do really complicated things.  But more important, I am a Wife and Mother.  Mr. Sith and I met in 2000 and have inseparable ever since.  He is my best friend and the love of my life.  Darthypie is our son. He is a ginger with a ginger's temper, but the sweetest boy you will ever meet. He's part me and part Mr. Sith and hopefully our good parts,  He is the apple of my eye. He knows most if not all the Star Wars characters by sight and is a Marvel Comics kid.

I own a grey and black Tabby cat by the name of Cujo. He is aptly named. Trust me.

I suck at punctuation and have typos in my posts. I am an abuser of ellipses ... and probably send grammar and punctuation fetishists into fits when they read this blog. I know I should be more careful and it's something I'm working on, but to be honest. I doubt I will ever have the time.

The Pink Sith blog is a funny and unique look at the world of cosmetics, skincare, nail polish and almost everything beauty. I have an unhealthy obsession with taupe eyeshadow, an excellent sense of humor and a great objective eye for what is good and what isn't so good in the products I review. I am passionate about beauty and passionate about making makeup reviews less "clinical" and more FUN!
The Pink Sith blog launched in 2008 after I decided it was time to use my powers for good rather than for evil. I decided to share my funny and irreverent opinions on all things beauty. In 2010, The Pink Sith Blog tortured the hearts of readers with a series called "Taupes You Can't Have" a series dedicated to showcasing rare, hard to find, and discontinued taupe shadows. In 2011 The Pink Sith Blog did it again by starting a new series called "Blushes You Can't Have". In 2012 The Pink Sith Blog featured Highlighters You Can't Have.  Also in 2012 The Pink Sith Blog was selected to be one of 8 blogs featured on the NeimanMarcus.com website, selecting items for the Neiman Marcus Beauty Awards. I was also a special guest of Lise Watier Cosmetics in Montreal and attended and covered the launch of the USA e-commerce website.

The style of my writing can range anywhere from gushing over the latest taupe eyeshadow to a fairy tale story to describe a perfume. I try to maintain open and honest communication with the readers and I try to make reading a daily posts fun.
