the+balm+cabana+boy

Yes well I know you’ve had to listen to me biatch myself blue about how the Balm Cabana Boy mysteriously disappeared off the shelves of Sephora soon after I told you about. What the hell? It’s a total conspiracy they so didn’t want me to have this blush!

Well the bad news is you’ll have to listen to one more post about the Balm Cabana Boy before I finally bring you a review of it.

Yes, yes you guessed it. It’s available at Sephora! OMG! Everyone rejoice! All hail Cabana Boy! Thank gawd. I was liable to throw myself off a roof in protest if I didn’t get me some of this soon. The baby jebus finally heard my prayers.

Wants it?

Go gets it!

The saga of Cabana boy is now closed. For more epic posts about it do a search on my blog and read your heart out chicas!

Twilight Beauty Cosmetics: Twilight-Inspired Makeup Collection

twilight+beauty+cosmetics

Spoiled Pretty has the deets on the new Twilight inspired cosmetic collection. We already knew that DuWop was busy creating something special for us in the works that was Twilight themed but I don’t think ANYONE has realized how big a collection this is turning out to be.

Click it below to read the deets!

Yes well call me what you will but I’m a fan of Twilight so I’m excited to see how this line turns out. My original thought was DuWop would create a small selection of items to pair up with the new V Gloss they introduced earlier this month. Nope, not the case. It’s even bigger and better than that!

The beauty line actually consists of two separate collections. It’s actually entitled Twilight Beauty so they are taking this above and beyond a simple release from one brand.

Twilight Beauty will launch two different lines of cosmetics which will be entitled Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available with the second film’s release this Fall.

Spoiled Pretty reports that Esmy Manica and Kimbery Clark of All About Beauty and Cristina Bartolucci, the founder and Creative Director of DuWop Cosmetics, are part of the development team behind the Twilight Beauty Cosmetic Line.

The line will include over 70 products!!!!!! Holy cow! That’s a brand all in itself so you can see how interesting this is shaping up to be.

Luna Twilight is inspired by the female characters of the books with an array of soft, natural beauty looks and stunning, fierce ones. Some products will include First Light Body and Face Glow and Gleam Metallic Mascara.

Volturi Twilight is inspired by the Volturi family crest. The line features Foreshadow Primer which is coupled with a loose glitter dust called Labrynth Shadows. These loose powder shadows are supposedly highly pigmented and are housed in stackable pots providing the ability to mix and match colors.

Luna Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 at Dillardís and Nordstrom. Volturi Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 through specialty retailers. Both lines will be sold at TwilightBeauty.com, the exclusive website for both brands.

I’m highly interested in checking this out for myself as I’m curious about colors, products, and prices.

What do you think?

Love the idea of an entire line dedicateto Twilight?

Not so much?

Musings of the Day: Picture Perfect and Airbrushed Finish!

I was just looking at the new Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System on Sephora and hoping I’d win the lotto so I can make extremely over indulgent airbrush gadgetry purchases.

I’ve never been airbrushed before but when I’m rich and famous I plan to airbrush every part of my face and body thanks so much.

Which brings me to my Musings for today! Would you use an in home airbrush system to get yourself picture perfect? Have you used one before? What did you think?

Tell the Muse and click below to hear my tale!

As luxurious and incredible as an airbrush of my very own sounds I so know I’d make an utter mess of application. I’d probably end up foundationing my bathroom walls instead of my face knowing how goofy I am. I can’t recall the system but I remember seeing an infomercial a few years ago with an in home airbrush system and totally being sold on it and almost buying the bloody thing!

I’ve never had the airbrush experience but I’d totally be up for trying it out. Sephora should offer to test this out, I’d be first in line!

What do you think?

Loves the thought of an at home airbrush system?

Beauty NIGHTMARES!

nightmares

Poked yourself in the eye with your eyeliner? Squeezed your lash curler a little too hard and caught part of your lid while doing so (Ouch!)? Got shampoo in your eye? We all have them. Those little beauty nightmares that either make us laugh out loud at what a klutz we are or scare us silly!

Jump ahead to hear one of my beauty nightmares and feel free to share your own!

Believe me I’m entirely too lethal when it comes to cosmetics. Poke myself in the eye? Check! Caught my lid with my lash curler? Double check! Got shampoo in my eye? Oh yes, Check! I can name any number of ways my life has been threatened by everyday cosmetics, skin care, and hair care!

One of my most recent nightmares comes to mind for this post, read ahead.

It started like any other night……I had gotten home and was in the process of my makeup removal regime. I began by removing my eye makeup and following up with my normal cleanser. Afterward I proceeded to mist with my favorite toner. Normally I’d wait until my face was dry and follow up with night cream and eye cream however something weird happened!

I couldn’t tell you what it was but something upset my vision terribly. I know it wasn’t my cleanser as I hadn’t used an oil to remove my makeup and I don’t think it was my eye makeup remover either which only left my toner. After misting I noticed that I had a case of scary foggy/cloudy eye vision. I swear I totally freak after using an oil to remove my makeup when this happens but luckily it goes away quickly. This time around it was sticking around and seemed to be getting worst ever second! Can you say freak out?

I got so scared I called up the company that made the toner and got v-mail! Great! I proceeded to google, half blinded, about the results of the product (this had NEVER happened in all my time using it) and got nothing back. I dunno if I didn’t get results because I was temporarily blinded or because my keyword skillz weren’t up to par with my vision gone wonky.

Obviously the best thing to do is rinse with cool water but hells that didn’t work. So I jump in a cold shower for 15 minutes splashing all kinds of frigid water on my face. Aside from developing a bad case of frost bite the cloudy vision was still there.

At this point I dunno if my imagination was running around buck wild or my vision truly was becoming worst. I’m serious this was a total freak out moment for me.

I decided my best course of action was to remain calm even though I was this close to just driving to the emergency room. After about two hours of flushing with cool water and laying in bed calmly aka freaking out my vision started returning to normal.

Phew.

As funny as it sounds now I was totally scared for a sec there. Needless to say the toner was emptied down the drain and never purchased again.

How about you?

Any awesome beauty nightmares?

Minor ones?

Major ones?
