Tarte Swatch Station

Here’s a rather fun idea from Tarte, a Swatch Station! Tarte’s swatched their entire Holiday 2012 Collection, videoed it, and slapped it up on youTube for your reference.

I dunno how old you are but the videos kinda reminded me of Braingames which used to be on HBO many years ago. I had visions of Safari Solitaire as they were swatching.

I’ve become the type of person that can’t really watch my favorite guru videos as I really want them to get to the point. And sometimes it turns into a life story rather than a review. Since I’m so crazy busy I sometimes can’t sit through a 10-15 minute review to get to swatches so these videos are kinda awesome. Festive music, quick view of the product, and swatches. Boom! Done in under a minute.

Thanks Tarte!

I likey!

Hopefully they’ll continue with the Swatch Station for the new seasonal releases ahead. It could prove very helpful!

Thoughts?

Do you like the idea of a swatch video?

Prefer seeing photos?

Do share!

Robert Pattinson New Face of Dior Fragrance

Robert Pattinson reportedly signed a a deal with Dior to be the next face of their men’s fragrance. Perhaps we’ll see some Chanel-like TV spots starring RPatz as well.

Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga fragrance so seems the Twilight alumni will be well set after this final film. Now who wants Taylor’s face? Anyone? Armani? He’s chiseled, boy got game! Come on people someone has to snatch him up.

I’m kinda over Twilight. I know bad fan girl, bad! But it got a little too ridiculous at some point…..

Don’t shoot me k?

I promise I’ll be seeing Breaking Dawn 2 anyway Twihard status be damned!

Read the Lush Times Online

I miss the days Sephora used to offer their catalog online. They rarely do it nowadays or send out a catalog for that matter. Le sigh!

Good news though!

Now you can read the Lush Times online! Lush has archives some of their seasonal catalogs including the Christmas Edition so you can read them at your leisure online.

Access the Lush Times Christmas Catalog here.
Access the Lush Times Catalog Archive here.

Enjoy but don’t blame me for enabling your lemmings!
