I grew up with the Muppets, Fraggle Rock, the Dark Crystal, Labyrinth….needless to say Henson was a big part of my childhood and heck, till this day, all these shows and movies are on my rewatch list. The man was a genius.
I admit though I’m not really looking forward to the new Muppet Movie as when Jim Henson died he definitely took some of the magic of these puppets with him and they aren’t nearly as amazing as they once were. But I’m keeping hope alive that the new film will knock my socks off.
When I heard Miss Piggy would be getting her very own MAC Collection I was ecstatic. Visions of Dame Edna-like palettes danced through my head and I was thinking of an outrageous (btw would wouldn’t a Jem collection rock?) color story.
Flash forward to the actual details and Miss Piggy for MAC in reality isn’t quite what I expected.
Word on the street is the Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 Palette are quite the hit. And really why wouldn’t they be? I have my little stash of loose mineral shadows from BE but let’s face it they are the fall out demons from hell. I hate having to clean up fall out because hello, how impossible. I’ve tried tape tricks, powder under the eye trick, etc…etc…even eyeshadow shields which are sometimes a gift from the beauty tool Gods in these situations but fall out, such a pain.
Bare Minerals makes some might fine shadows but having them pressed up into a compact, well, that’s the best thing I’ve experienced in the beauty world since the introduction of Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Let’s take a peek and find out what’s so fab about ‘em!
Urban Decay’s Friends and Family Event is on baby! This is the time you can take advantage of hauling all you can at 20% Off. If you don’t already own the Naked Palette you’re a stinker, go get it, NOW!
I feel like I’m pretty locked up tight on the Urban Decay front so I’m not taking advantage of the sale. Yes, I admit, there is such a thing as too much Urban Decay. Thankfully I’m pretty stocked up on everything from the brand now I’m just sitting around patiently waiting for Spring 2012 to release. I’m positive Urban Decay Spring 2012 will probably be something stupid awesome, another Book of Shadows maybe?! With ALL new shades and no Midnight Cowboy? Yes, yes, please make it happen!
For those who are hauling at the sale might I suggest grabbing yourself the Urban Decay 24/7 Shadow Pencil Stash?
How the most joyful time of the year turns into a ball of stress and busy is beyond me. But that’s it in a nutshell isn’t it? The Holidays are all about stress, being busy, planning this, being there, being here, getting that done, shopping for this one, shopping for that one…no time for breathing…keep going!
I don’t have kids but I imagine it’s even more hectic with children involved in the mix.
There is one thing that doesn’t have to be stressful, your makeup.
The Bare Escentuals Boxom More to Love Set is a five piece selection of goodies for your eyes and lips that will simplify your Holiday look in as little as 5 minutes. Who doesn’t want a five minute makeup application that makes us look festive and fabulous?
I could possibly spend hours staring at the the MAC Snowglobe Eyeshadow Palette. It’s kinda a cool design, although a bit impractical for travel.
Let’s take a look!
