My childhood is ruined thanks to the Jem trailer but at least I have NYC Color Cosmetics Expert Last Lip Color Matte to look forward to.
When I heard on Reddit several hundred years ago that they were doing a Jem live action movie I proceeded to run around the room in circles of excitement. I spent my childhood (and yeah, much of my adulthood) watching and rewatching the Jem cartoon! I had the dolls (How freaking cool were the dolls? The could kick Barbie’s a$$! They were HUGE!), I had the Rock Backstager with Speaker (which I betrayed Jem with by using it with my Barbies), I had the Rockin’ Roadster (Love the commercial where Jem ditches Kimber for Rio! So much for sisters before misters!), and yes, I even had the Glitter ‘n Gold Roadster.
Imagine my dismay after watching the movie trailer. Where are the Misfits? Why is Molly Ringwald Jem’s mom, aunt, keeper!? Where’s Starlight House? Where’s the truly outrageous music?
Excuse me why I pacify myself with $1.99 budget friendly lipstick from NYC because I need at least one awesome item in my life after this hot mess!
Etude House Beauty Shot Face Blur ($15) is a little pick me up for the girls and guys with dull, lackluster skin. I actually put off trying Beauty Shot Face Blur for a while now! Etude House released it a few months ago but I kept putting off trying it because in promo shots it looks like a glow-y luminous primer of sorts and I dislike any highlighting type primers with a passion as they make my fuller face look even more full.
Who approved the marketing ad on this mascara? It displays a model with spidery, clumpy lashes…eep! Not the look I go for when applying mascara but ummm ok maybe Maybelline wants to take a little “creative” liberties with the mascara marketing.
I actually remember enjoy the original and first Maybelline Volum’ Express the Colossal Mascara but since that release there have been dozens of formulations and brush applicator changes that haven’t really caught my attention. I’m all about new and exciting products but the constant stream of “Miss Manga”, “the Colossal”, “Voluminous”, and other releases is not only confusing but so repetitive. As far as I’m concerned most times it’s just about a brush change and not so much a formula one.
L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Rock Mascara joins the Miss Manga Mascara Collection for Summer 2015 and should be arriving at drugstores now. This new formula and applicator promises volume thanks to a 360 degree spiked brush head. Honestly, the displays for L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock and the new Maybelline Volum’ Express The Colossal Chaotic Lash Mascara are completely off putting to me as they show models with clumpy, spidery lashes. Yeah, so, that’s not really the look I’m going for.
But of course, I had to try out L’Oreal Miss Manga Rock Mascara for myself (even though I wasn’t particularly keen on the original formula).
Yeah, so, I liked the name! I’m such a goof but it totally made me snort out loud.
Actually Wet n Wild See If I Carrot Megaslicks Balm Stain is part of the permanent range of shades so it’s just being repromoted in the California Dreaming Collection but still it’s a shade I haven’t tried before so I was happy they brought it my attention in this display! I love orange lipsticks, glosses, etc in the Summer and See If I Carrot is a delightful shade of orange for Summer looks!
