Smashbox Masquerade Liquid Liner & Lash Overlay Review and Swatches

You’re not officially American unless you’re multitasking your way through life. Driving while on your cell phone, reading your e-mail while updating your blog, texting your best friend while debating politics with your neighbor, walking while chewing gum at the same time….this is the society we live in. We have to juggle 10 to 20 different tasks a day, we can’t take time out and do one thing and proceed to follow up with another after the first task is complete, we need to do them both, together, simultaneously. If you can’t do it, you’re out of this rat race because it’s an essential skill in work and your personal life (if you have kids you need to juggle even more, say 20-30 different things).

Maybe all that multitasking has drained out into our makeup because many products nowadays promise to do everything and than some. Multitasking is the new wave of your makeup future.

For example the new Smashbox Masquerade Liquid Liner & Lash Overlay performs two functions, nope not one, this bad boy multitasks with the best of us.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric Review and Swatches

Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric 3

I’ve held off my review on Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric for a while now. I purchased all three shades of this blush early in July or so when it originally released. But counters had gotten a very limited stock in plus online was sold out for a little bit which is why I didn’t want to tempt and tease you with something that might prove unattainable.

I thought these were running for a limited time but two of my Armani Beauty counters have recently restocked and they are readily available again on www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com so I’d said it’s about time I told you all about them.

Want the good word?

MAC Fabulous Felines Review and Swatches

Rawrrr! Crazy cat people take note, MAC Fabulous Felines launches next week (August 26th) or in some areas you have been privy to a pre-launch.

Anyone see this collection up close and personal yet? I got a few pieces to play with but haven’t seen it all as of yet. I called MAC today and asked if they are pre-launching and I got some dippy on the phone telling me, “Oh yeah, that collection is out in September…” Obviously she’s on another planet that takes one month to travel to…Jebus who educates these people. Please for the love of the Makeup Gods, don’t let your MAC stores or counters tell you this is launching in September….set your calenders for next week.

MAC Fabulous Felines launches in three collections that are themed around three different cats. Minds you, some of the looks MAC did with the collection aren’t cat-like but more along the lines of mimicking the colors of the different types of cats. So if you happen to be a crazy cat lady that’s expecting some sort of cat looks, you might be disappointed. I know cat people, I own a cat but I don’t consider myself a cat person, I like ragging on you weirdos. Kiddin’, kiddin’!

MAC Fabulous Felines 1

Moral of this story is here’s a little sneaky peek of MAC Fabulous Felines and later when the collection launches in September (HA, little joke there) ahem…next WEEK…I’ll show you the rest of my purchases.

Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream Review

Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel Cream 1

Well Garnier, I have to give you credit where credit is due. You’re consistent with your skincare and you create a variety of products that promise the world to womankind.

You have to give props to the Garnier Nutritioniste Collection just for the sheer volume alone of products they release each year. Wrinkles, crows feet, age spots, you name it and Sarah Jessica Parker is probably smiling from your TV set selling it to you. I’ve ventured into Garnier a time or two but I’ve never found products that have caused mega, wow aspiring effects to make me look fresher, younger, or more gorgeous.

Damn.

However, I will tell you about a winner of a product that Garnier has introduced recently.

Def worth your time.
