I think I need a nap.
My butt is dragging. I’ve been getting up an hour early so I can play Arkham City, yeah, I’m a little addicted. What’s your gaming pleasure at the moment? I also have the Sim’s Pets I need to install, gawd another corny expansion pack? Someone save us.
I think a review of the new Benefit Ticket to Glossytown should get me back in gear as I need all the awake time I can get, there simply aren’t enough hours in my day to deal with my office, my life, and my blog. Phew!
Listen up lipgloss lovers.
I’ve convinced the best lipgloss on the market, which doesn’t get nearly enough love, is Laura Mercier’s Lip Glace. Everyone talks about MAC Lipglass, Bobbi Brown Lipgloss, etc…including me but the real star of the show is Laura Mercier Lip Glace. I’m fully convinced and now it’s my responsibility to convince the rest of the beauty junkies out there.
Switch lipglosses now! You need Lip Glace in your collection! You need several! You can get several, the new Laura Mercier Mini Lip Glace Set Holiday Set is the key!
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?
Ahhh finally another piece of the MAC Holiday 2011 Collection that I am liking. Phew I was starting to feel like the Grinch Who Stole the Christmas Makeup Collection from you.
The MAC Iced Delights Lip Bag in Sultry turned into exactly that, a delight!
Well….MAC Glitter and Ice Collection proves interesting, that much it gets from me. I got a few pieces today in the mail and here are my thoughts so far.
For the second year in a row Lorac has introduced a six piece lipgloss set for the Holidays. The Lorac Bejeweled Lip Gloss Collection adds a little bit of flair this year with sparkle versus last year’s collection which features full color glosses sans the festive finish of shimmer!
At 0.11 oz per a gloss and $25 for the set you’re looking at a mere $4.10 per a gloss. This is truly a great deal to say the least particularly if you knock off an extra $5 from the $25 during Sephora Friends and Family.
Let’s take a peek at these glosses and see what I liked about them!
Bobbi has her lovely little trio of glosses round for the holidays. Wouldn’t be the Holiday without Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Trio gracing my vanity, tis as traditional as eggnog and tinsel yo!
You might think candy canes, Santa, and your mom’s homemade cookies are the best thing about the Holidays but beauty junkies know it’s all about the coffrets, the kits, the sets, the palettes, and the many steals and deals we can get on some of our favorite makeup products.
Tis the time for gift sets people particularly gloss gift sets.
I’ll tell you one I look forward to every, single year…the gloss sets from Napoleon Perdis, tis my favorite gloss set of the season.
Over the weekend, I was willing to try out something new….
Imma tell you about what my mates deem a culinary delight, that’d be chocolate covered bacon. My friend Libs is here visiting from London to celebrate our best friend’s birthday and she brought chocolate covered bacon along with her for the trip. Damn you British people are strange folk (kiddin’).
I’m not much for bacon so dipping it into chocolate isn’t going to really win me over here. Seriously, chocolate covered bacon is all kinds of disgusting, no matter how much Libby will preach the bible about it to ya. Of course, she won over everyone but me with it…*shrug*
If you absolutely need to try it for yourself, you can get the non-British variety at Marini’s Candies who sells it in a gift box for $12.95 because pieces of fried pig fat look fancier when it’s in a gold gift box and covered with chocolate. Yay!
In the spirit of trying new things I picked up Pur Minerals Natural Knockout Set, ya know, because I needed to wash the taste of chocolate bacon out of my mouth….
Gather round beauty budget’ers.
Jordana Squeeze n’ Shine Super Shiny Tasty Gloss (OMG that’s a mouthful of a name) is available in three new shades and has the perfect little price tag to fulfill your lipgloss beauty budget sweet tooth…say that five times fast bishes!
….check it out!
Ahh plumping gloss.
Ask me several years ago if DuWop Lip Venom plumped my lips, I’d totes say YES! Today, I’d probably say maybe…mostly it works at irritating my lips so they look bigger.
Hey, whatever works right?
But actually some plumpers have a thicker formula which give the illusion of a fuller Angie Jolie look, I’ll take an illusion any day since I’m not blessed with the real deal.
NYX Pump It Up Lip Plumper are new glosses from the brand that promise bigger, badder, plumper looking lips.
Take a look!
