I happen to be a member of the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler cult. Ya know, we believe that Shu’s Eyelash Curler is a gift from the makeup tool gods and that no one else has created a curler anywhere near on par with it. Another words, Shu’s Eyelash Curler is the end all eyelash curler…once you start using it, you’ll simply never need another eyelash curler in your life because it does the job and does it well.
Sadly, the downside is Shu has failed to evolve and still, to this day, does not offer lash pad refills. You’ll get plenty of people who proceed to recommend refilling it with another brand’s pad but people, the pad, is where the magic happens!
I’ve actually always believed that the pad is the key to an excellent eyelash curler. You can take any old lash curler insert a really good pad into it and instantly you’ll get amazing results as far as I am concerned. Take a crummy, dense pad and suddenly you’re getting rubbish results.
However, one eyelash curler does prove that it a combination of the design of the unit and the pad is the key to the ultimate lashes you’ve experienced.
Koji Japan Makeup Curving Eyelash Curler is a pure miracle to the lash curling world. Once you use it, you’ll want to write sonnets about its abilities.
Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Blush has undergone a revamp in the packaging department. I actually reviewed this product in the past and gave it a very hearty rave thanks to the incredible color (Parasol) I purchased and the sweet packaging but I recently got to check out a few more shades and I managed to fall in love for a second time.
It’s just a really great blush and one you should check out if you haven’t already.
Take a look!
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!
