You have to ask yourself how much make up do you really need? Particularly when you’re as big a beauty junkie as I am. But hey, we all have our vices, I just have too many haha (makeup, manga, comic books, games, books…eep!).
The thing is when I originally saw the Bobbi Brown Instant Pretty Collection on QVC I had to ask myself if I really needed it but after I got it I was happy I decided to purchase it as it contains such classical pieces of makeup that are truly practical and pretty for simple, natural looks.
Take a look!
We are getting closer to the launch of the new Tarte High Performance Make Collection QVC Today’s Special Value for July. I’ll be swatching and reviewing the collection for you shortly but here are a few photos to whet your appetite.
I know some of you already have the collection so I look forward to your thoughts in the comments about this one.
I can’t wait for it to start!
Let’s start it off with a giveaway, yes?
Today my weekend starts with a bang courtesy the new Smashbox Airbrush Whipped Cheek Color.
They don’t always work but there’s something so terribly thrilling about whipped blush. What is it about the formula that excites me?
Anyone feel the same?
Skin Food Good Afternoon Rose Lemon Tea BB Cream is one of several afternoon tea infused BB Cream formulas that the brand released.
Today I’ll be reviewing the Rose Lemon Tea version.
Take a peek!
Clinique Even Better Concealer launched a few months ago and being the junkie I am for all things concealer I snatched it up.
I actually ended up ordering it online because the Clinique counter had a single MA present at the time and she was proceeding to waste time on someone who didn’t actually end up buying anything at all. Dontcha just hate that? I was sitting there for about 25 minutes waiting for her, finally got impatient, and walked to the next counter over to grab something else and proceeded to watch the person she wasted time with walk away with nothing.
I just needed a concealer dude…!
I was surprised while swatching in store how pink the first four shades were. I ended up purchasing the fifth shade which is abnormal for me but it turned into a perfect match so score!
And with Nordstrom’s Free Shipping on all orders I didn’t have to wait for near half an hour to get it either.
Take a look!
I make no secret about my love for shimmer and sparkly good times! That’s why I absolutely adore the Vincent Longo Diamond Gloss shades I recently purchased.
You need to check ‘em out if you love yourself some sparkly lipgloss joy.
Seeking that perfect shade of honey rose bronze for your cheeks? You NEED Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Cream Blush in Honey!
What a stunning shade!
Skin Food Fresh Juice C Serum Whitening is one of those hit or miss products you occasionally run across from Skin Food.
I really love some of Skin Food’s offerings but I find many of the skincare products are more a fail than a hit for me sometimes as they promise a whole lot of everything but deliver on very little of it.
Having tried the entire range of the Skin Food Fresh Juice C Collection I must say it proved disappointing to say the least.
My post on the NARS Fall 2012 Collection has been updated with more delicious goodies!
Click here to take a peek!
NARS Foreplay Cheek ($49) you are too much for words. Imma take you home tonight and make sweet love to you on the kitchen floor.
What’s that? Oh ok, Imma take you home tonight and make sweet love to you on a bearskin rug in front of a roaring fire. Is that better?
Nordstrom is displaying some of the gorgeous pieces from the NARS Fall 2012 Collection today.
I’m unsure if this is related to the Andy Warhol Collection they had plans to release for Fall 2012 but I’m kinda doubtful?
Take a look!
Show of hands?
I’m constantly looking for ways to brighten my skin up or even whiten it further for that matter so I’m always up for trying Asian potions and lotions to do so.
Arbutin is actually a successful way to brighten and lighten skin if you have, oh, a few years to spare.
So what’s your brush situation like?
Got any room in your stash for the new Bobbi Brown Desert Twilight Mini Brush Set?
This cute little flip open case contains four Bobbi Brown essential brushes and room to tuck your favorite Bobbi Brown Palette inside (ahem the Desert Twilight Eye Palette fits perfectly inside, just sayin’).
Official song for BB Creams released in the US, another one bites the dust.
L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream is another fail of a BB Cream that’s marked up to $18 at drugstores at the moment, yes, that’s $17.99 plus tax.
You can imagine my review of the new L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream Illuminator isn’t going to be a good one so brace yourself.
