Philosophy Divine Inspiration Beauty Palette Sneak Peek

Here’s a little sneak peek at the Philosophy Divine Inspiration Beauty Palette.


Open Thread Day: What’s the Story Morning Glory?

When I was around 8 years old I fell in love with Tim Curry as Darkness in Legend.

Flash forward to 12 and me attending my first overnight PJ Party and I fell in love with Tim Curry again when I saw him in fish net stockings, a corset, and red, vampy lipstick (my mother would have died if she knew that we watched the movie at the party!). He’s since gained a good deal of weight and has a gray hair or two but when I saw him in Spamalot for the first time I literally melted.

Moral of the story is I’m not really ready to give up Halloween yet so I watched the Worst Witch late last night. How brilliant is Tim Curry moaning and groaning his way through “Anything can happen on Halloween!” Pure genius. I don’t care what anyone says that was blatantly sexual, look for it at the 2:18 mark!

Anyway, that’s my contribution to Open Thread Day today.

What’s Open Thread Day?

Why, it’s the day we all get together and start a chat fest in my comment box to discuss upcoming makeup collections, what we love at the moment in the beauty world, how the weather is, how we are doing…anything! That’s why it’s Open Thread Day!

So feel free to pop a squat, pull up a chair, grab your cuppa tea, and say hey!

Looking forward to talking to you!

Btw can we please discuss the failage that is Miss Piggy for MAC? What a sore disappointment!


Truth or Dare by Madonna Perfume Truth or Dare Fragrance by Madonna

Mmm Madonna truly is living in a material world. First her H&M Collection, than a Macy’s collaboration with her daughter, and now her first fragrance!

Would you buy a Madonna’s Perfume?

I tried to love this product but my skin no likey!

Fans of Mineral Veil will be happy to add the new bareMinerals Ready SPF 15 Touch Up Veil to their stash if they’ve always desired having a pressed version (hmmm are pressed blushes on the horizon too for Spring 2012?).
