Napoleon Perdis Luxe Lip Gloss Collection 001

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.

Attention Please Make Up Base Cream Review

Pan Am Christine

Let me tell ya, Pan Am, is all about the visual candy because the substance of the drama is so snoring boring…..

I thought this was the break out hit for Fall…? What the hell happened? Seriously, if it wasn’t for the clothes, hair, makeup, and accessories I’d have deleted it from my Tivo three episodes ago.

Gimme zombies
and haunted houses, forget 60′s glam….!

Speaking of retro Stewardess’…Attention Please, a brand I recently introduced you too, seems to be doing some pimping for Pan Am as their packaging gathers up the retro vibe of travel days gone by.

Let’s take a look at Attention Please Make Base Cream and see if it offers anything better than the Pan Am TV show does. Yawn.

Pur Minerals Natural Knockout Set Review, Swatches, Photos

chocolate covered bacon

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….

Mally Clear Poreless Face Defender Liquid Review, Swatches, Photos

Mally Clear Poreless Face Defender Liquid 001

If it works…

Don’t change the formula, don’t mess with it…leave it alone.

What’s that old saying? If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

As far as I’m concerned Mally Poreless Face Defender puts the bees in knees. So Mally took that great product one step further and created a liquid version of it….

But, me no likey.

Tarina Tarantino Beauty Conditioning Lip Sheen Review, Swatches, Photos

Tarina Tarantino Beauty Conditioning Lip Sheen 004

Tarina you have grown up girl!

Tarina Tarantino Beauty has undergone a very sophisticated, mature make over. The beauty collection featured pink and silver packaging for its original launch with crystal embeds. I personally squealed when they launched the brand at Sephora because, well, obviously right? It was pretty, pink, and sparkly…..my repertoire as a beauty junkie.

I had nothing against the packaging and loved it. It was so very Tarina and so very girly girl.

Flash forward to Fall 2011 and Tarina Tarantino Beauty has gotten a sophisticated new make over. Not only are you getting great new packaging but also quality makeup…I’m utterly in love with Tarina Tarantino Beauty Conditioning Lip Sheens. Why I never tried these with the original packaging is beyond me but I’m going to say you NEED these.
