Beauty Bits & Bobs
We’ve had some fun around these parts with unusual lip balms haven’t we? Bacon, Tacos, Toilet Bowl (no worries, that isn’t a flavor, swear!) and my personal favorite lip balm flavor, Cheetos (seriously, total sarcasm there, Cheetos lip balm is more along the lines of gag me with a spoon ugh).
It’s been a while since we mused unusual lip balm flavors so today I bring you French Fry.
Happy Almost Weekend.
Any fancy plans for your weekend? I just need some R&R so it’s going to probably be pretty low key for me. I’m having a game night on Saturday, picked up Ticket to Ride after Wil Wheaton’s ravings. It’s actually highly unusual for me to do a game night in the Summer, I typically reserve them for Fall but a good deal of my friends expressed the same interested in Ticket to Ride so we decided why wait to play it?
As for the rest of the weekend a little Batman is in order, a little shopping and dinner with friends and heck, maybe, if it rains a little vegging in front of the telly to catch up on Teen Wolf and Awkward.
I just mailed out several of the giveaway prizes so winner’s be on the look out! Your goodies are on the way. I also need to select a winner for the contest I had while I was away.
A new giveaway for today.
Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.
Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.
One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.
Let’s take a peek at this!
I’m quite eager to get to the review.
Lorac Pro Cream Eyeliner is the new love of my makeup loving life.
As rather big fan of Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner I feel every so slightly guilty of cheating on Bobbi but facts if facts, Lorac, you have the better formula.
Being as goofy as I am with liquid liner I do find gel eyeliner considerably easier to work with. But as you probably noticed in many of my posts I leave off eyeliner from many of my looks. Reason? I feel a little over done lining my upper lash line…!
Anyone have that feeling? I just can’t work the look. So when I do use gel eyeliner I tend to go with a VERY, very nude eye look but today I got a little daring. I was testing out Gleaming Bronze so I paired it up with a little Lorac Pro Cream Eyeliner and yes, it pops but it might be too much. You’ve been warned.
I couldn’t resist.
I HAD to have the Hello Kitty Head of the Class Makeup Palette.
I’ve had my ups and downs with some of the Hello Kitty Beauty Palettes and I was a little wary of purchasing this but the blush really called out to me and who doesn’t love the geeky factor?
Have a peek!
