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

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?

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…

You gotta love on Cupcake Toothpaste because brushing your teeth should have cupcakes, sugar, and frosting involved right?

Because I Think Donut and Cupcake Lipgloss Should Be Essential To Your Beauty Diet

Cuppycakes, evil little bastards.

Totally addicted to ’em!

Donuts? Not as addicted to ’em as cupcakes. I think I’m burned out with donuts. My father came to America when he was 21 or 22, started his own bakery, married my mum, had kids, and proceeded to ply us with carbs most our life. Thanks dad, heart you man. So perhaps I’m on donut burn out mode since they were a big part of my youth.

I do believe that donuts and cupcakes should be a part of the food group but of course, the Surgeon General would NOT agree that’s why Donut and Cupcake Lipgloss should be essential to your beauty diet, calorie and fat free you see!
