Vaseline Lip Therapy Y U So Stupid Cute?

Vaseline Lip Therapy 3

My mum is kinda like the dad in my Big Fat Greek Wedding. Ya know, with the Windex? Accept my mum doesn’t think Windex is the cure all, she thinks Vaseline and Vicks Vapor Rub is.

Got a cut? Use Vaseline. Unruly brows? Use Vaseline. Cold sore? Use Vaseline. Crusty, sore nose from a cold? Use Vaseline. Dry elbows and knees? Use Vaseline.

Yeah, old school remedies from Mama Muse.

She right on most accounts, Vaseline really is a nifty little cure all. Now some folks like it, some folks not so much. I don’t mind it which is why I think this little tub of Vaseline Lip Therapy is oh so stupid cute.

QVC, Where You At?

qvc come home

QVC is a little slow on the beauty front lately and I miss them.

Last year, was one auto delivery color collection after another. I couldn’t keep up! Tarte, Bobbi Brown, Laura Geller, Mally…just to name a few.

Plus a SLEW of early releases that we wouldn’t see until late Spring and even Summer.

They’ve been a little slow though lately.

Where you at guys? I appreciate the break but come home, come home!

I need my beauty fix.

Whatcha think?

Are you a QVC fan girl?

I’m going to start singing “Come home, Come home” and replace Snoopy with QVC.

How Exactly Does Bobbi Brown Come Up with the Names for Some of Her Products?

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair

I sometimes wonder who names my favorite lipstick or my favorite product….I mean do they hire one specific person to name an entire line of lipsticks?

“Hey here’s our newest lipstick line, name these k?”

That would be my dream job.

Like who named NARS Orgasm, Orgasm? Or Super Orgasm?

Although I was thinking some glamorous lady with a corner office and an incredible view of Manhattan was sitting behind her ultra chic desk thinking up names for products….

That isn’t actually the case!

What’s the Difference Between Tinted Moisturizer and BB Creams?

Whats the Difference between Tinted Moisturizer and BB Creams

Now that we are finally seeing BB Creams on our shores I thought I’d take a second to answer the question, What’s the difference between Tinted Moisturizer and BB Creams?

I already see alot of questions rising up about how BB Creams are the same as Tinted Moisturizers or questions about the differences between the two….I want to emphasis that BB Creams and Tinted Moisturizers are too vastly different products. The concept is somewhat the same but the ingredients and performance of the two products are very different. Although I will say so far the US releases I’ve played with from Dr. Jart are quite disappointing and do indeed act more as a Tinted Moisturizer than a BB Cream.

BB Cream stands for Blemish Balm Cream. The product was originally created by Germany dermatologists to help patients who had gone through laser skin surgery. The product was meant to soothe and regenerate the skin tissue.

The craze was born in Korea (most BB Creams and the best performing ones in my opinion are from various Korean Brands) when famous actresses started wearing the cream on their faces. The product slowly started branching out from Korea to Japan, China, Singapore, and other parts of Asia thus creating a very hot trend.

Most BB Creams are created in one shade but some are created in two and if you’re lucky some even go so far as to offer three or four shades such as Missha. It’s rare though that more than one shade is created. I’ve heard alot of ranting about this but you do have to remember that BB Creams originated in Asia where there is one dominate skin tone…

Jump ahead for more.
