Bobbi, Bobbi, Bobbi! I love you for recreating bronzer and making it into something other than a dull, lackluster muddy shade and instead creating something with a pop of gorgeous color!
Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer is one of my very favorite bronzers around the town and I’ve reviewed them in the past (please see my past review here and here) but the new Bobbi Brown Peony & Python Collection Neiman Marcus Exclusive comes with a popping shade of Pink Peony Illuminating Bronzer that you simply must have!
Although drying, I had pretty good success with Hard Candy Glamoflauge and I honestly wasn’t expecting a new concealer from the brand so soon after the release of Glamoflauge.
But here we are a few months later and a brand new concealer to discover from the brand. Hard Candy Undercover Agent Undereye Brightener & Concealer Duo not only addresses my dark circles but also my puffiness in one easy to use concealer.
Let’s check it out and see!
When I think matte, I think Dita von Teese. That girl wears red matte lipstick like she was born with it on her mouth. Stunning, simply stunning!
However, when I try to wear it, well, it’s far from stunning and more in the realms of hello Bozo the Clown. Plus it tends to migrate around my mouth, onto my chin, up my cheek, and across my forehead. Needless to say, it’s messy as hell for some reason and I can’t pull it off.
As with eyeshadow, lipstick and lip creams in a matte finish just don’t get on well with me for some reason.
Maybe NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream can change my mind!
Mmm NYX channels Urban Decay with their new, bigger, cheaper Nude On Nude Palette.
Dior ‘DSK Forever’ Powder Compact promises to extend the wear of your foundation by four hours, can it be true?
I haven’t yet gotten the Sephora Spring 2011 Catalog as of yet but it is online already so I nicked a few images from it to share with you today.
I always like sharing the catalog as it gets alot of us into great conversations for Spring. So let’s see what we are looking at this year!
Just wanted to remind you about the Laura Geller Vanilla Nudes Collection that I featured several weeks ago. It’s upcoming on QVC (mine shipped already so swatches and a review upcoming soonish) this week as a Today’s Special Value.
Here’s more images that weren’t included in my original post and the deets if you missed it during my first post.
Tarte 100% Pure Cold Pressed Maracuja Oil from the Amazon is having an exclusive launch on QVC this week. It’s the next big thing in skincare that promises brighter, smoother, more beautiful skin.
Check it out!
When I was growing up three toys dominated my collection, Strawberry Shortcake, Rose Petal, and Sweet Secrets. My sister is considerably older and worked at Toys ‘R Us in her teen years thus I bugged her non stop for accessories for my three favorite toys.
As I grow older I fondly look back on my youth when makeup and bath and body crosses into the realms of these beloved favorite toys. Too Faced brought back the Smurfs, MAC continues to bring back favorites like Wonder Woman and Disney characters, and many other brands are embracing both nostalgic and popular iconic characters from both my youth and contemporary pop culture.
Cake Beauty takes a trip down memory lane with its new Strawberry Shortcake Berry Decadent Collection!
Sorry guys little late with my review of the Laura Geller Escape to the Tropics Color Collection but quite fitting as the weather is so very Spring-like today. It was nice pulling this gorgeous kit out of my review pile and indulging in tropical hues and not worrying about how I had to get out my deep sea diving gear to make my way into the snow, wet, and cold! Today we got sun, a brisk cool breeze, and the birds chirping crazily in excitement that maybe, just maybe, Spring might be on the way!
I HOPE you all got your hands on this set but if not, no worries, it’s still available so after the review if you’re wanting it you can indulge!
I’m one for purchasing obscure, unique fragrances. I love hunting around e-tailers, or Etsy, and other small shops to discover new and interesting fragrances to try out.
Tokyo Milk is one my favorite Indie brands that has a range of fun fragrances you might want to try out if you’re bored with the normal scents available at your local counters.
Feminine care products are something I whisper about. I don’t technically discuss it with anyone, I don’t go to the drugstore and ask where I can find them, and I definitely hide them under the bread when I’m at the supermarket purchasing them.
It’s not a case of being embarrassed because I am woman, hear me RAWR but I’m kind of a private person so I’m normally not one for flashing around these items.
It’s Voldemort-like in a kinda “Product who must not be named” way.
That’s why I’m not sure I want to flash around or store anything in my bathroom that has a big splashed label on the front that reads “I Love My Muff”.
