I grew up with the Muppets, Fraggle Rock, the Dark Crystal, Labyrinth….needless to say Henson was a big part of my childhood and heck, till this day, all these shows and movies are on my rewatch list. The man was a genius.
I admit though I’m not really looking forward to the new Muppet Movie as when Jim Henson died he definitely took some of the magic of these puppets with him and they aren’t nearly as amazing as they once were. But I’m keeping hope alive that the new film will knock my socks off.
When I heard Miss Piggy would be getting her very own MAC Collection I was ecstatic. Visions of Dame Edna-like palettes danced through my head and I was thinking of an outrageous (btw would wouldn’t a Jem collection rock?) color story.
Flash forward to the actual details and Miss Piggy for MAC in reality isn’t quite what I expected.
The Bobbi Brown Party Collection should have totally been released mid December, true story. The collection just feels like a New Year’s Eve Collection which is unusual as not many makeup companies are pimping out such a seasonal release.
This collection is inspired by Bobbi’s memories as a child of her mom applying makeup at the bathroom mirror.
I so don’t have those types of memories since my own mother is a very no nonsense type of gal. I actually just got her into applying a smidge of Tarte Cheek Tint.
One of the exciting parts of this collection for me was the introduction of the Bobbi Brown Party Shimmer Brick. I personally always had a love/hate relationship with Shimmer Bricks because I tend to overdo application which results in Disco Fever…! But who can resist this unique Shimmer Brick which is imprinted with a martini glass and shaker.
Let’s have a lookiee!
Revlon is onto something…
If they play their cards right their Grow Luscious Lash Liner can take over my stash of Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliners but first they have to make a few minor adjustments to get there.
Scrub, scrub, scrub…
My skin needs a good scrub to ease the dullness, rid myself of dryness and flakes, plus I don’t want to worry about the scrub I use drying my skin out further because girl, you know these exfoliators are the work of the devil. I used to be a hardcore Philosophy Microdelivery fan but I swear it was making things worst instead of better.
Moral of the story, exfoliators are great but sometimes they make dry skin even drier.
I’ve been playing around with a few scrubs lately and at the moment Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is on my radar so let’s talk about it together?
Word on the street is the Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 Palette are quite the hit. And really why wouldn’t they be? I have my little stash of loose mineral shadows from BE but let’s face it they are the fall out demons from hell. I hate having to clean up fall out because hello, how impossible. I’ve tried tape tricks, powder under the eye trick, etc…etc…even eyeshadow shields which are sometimes a gift from the beauty tool Gods in these situations but fall out, such a pain.
Bare Minerals makes some might fine shadows but having them pressed up into a compact, well, that’s the best thing I’ve experienced in the beauty world since the introduction of Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Let’s take a peek and find out what’s so fab about ‘em!
