I wasn’t a typical little girl growing up so my idea of mermaids wasn’t based around Hans Christian Andersen or Disney’s Little Mermaid but more along the geeky lines of Heavy Metal magazine fantasy imagery such as Julie Bell and Boris Vallejo pieces. Honestly, Heavy Metal mag evokes so many geeky memories growing up particularly ones surrounding mermaids. I still read and collect the magazine to this day even though I promises myself a million times that I would finally go through my stash and start selling off older copies, yeah, never happened. Anyway ’nuff babbling about my love of mermaids. I’m hear to tell you about the DuWop Isla Sirena Collection. Things have been a little too quiet for me over at DuWop lately and I hadn’t heard word about their Spring Collection 2011 and I was wondering why…. Now I know why, they have something big in the works it looks like!
I haven’t been online in a few days so first thing this morning I hopped right on to see what the sales were looking like! I had visions of 50, 60, or 70% off great makeup.
Reality set in rather quickly when I realized most of what was on sale I already owned. I also felt like the steals and deals just weren’t there this year because stores actually ran out of stock super fast unlike last year’s bust of a Christmas due to the economy.
How about you?
Run into any great deals?
Here are some I’ve come across!
P.S. I missed posting these on Boxing Day, forgive a girl?
My relationship with DuWop spans quite a few years and in all that time I can’t recall them every having blush.
Let’s step back.
DuWop Blushbooster has been a part of the line for about 4 to 5 years now however I’ve never been tempted to indulge because it just looks a little too frosty plus it’s supposed to work on top of your normal blush (or on it’s own but from swatching I’d say it’s a tad too sheer to work as such). One day I’m trying this out but that day isn’t today.
Today I’m all about the fact that DuWop has finally heard my prayers and introduced Keep Blushing.
I wanna try.

I can’t believe Summer is almost over. In some ways it lasted for ages and in others it feels like it flew by. Did you enjoy your Summer so far? Do anything special?
As Summer draws to a close, I’ll be reviewing the last of the Summer items I have stashed away and start to concentrate more on Fall and Holiday 2010. It’s quite an exciting time as I simply adore Holiday Collections!
Until we get deeper into Fall and Holiday we might as well enjoy the last days of Summer the best we can right? Here are some great posts from Summer 2010 that you may have missed!
NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep released this Summer and it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. Some people loved it, alot of people hated it, and I gotta admit mine fell deep into the Makeup Graveyard!
MAC’s Marine Life Powder is still sitting untouched in my beauty vault, right next to Stereo Rose. It was Summer’s must have item and a hot commodity at MAC counters who got as little as five compacts in stock! Beauty junkies who scored it, struck gold, literally!
I had my Summer crush on the new Stila Raspberry Lip and Cheek Lip Stain!
Hard Candy had a really late Spring release, that turned more into a Summer one for me and one thing that happened to be a must have item was the new Hard Candy Moon Glow, loved it!
Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer turned into a solid gold beauty product as it held my gloss on tight all day long!
The Bath and Body Works Summer Vanillas are still haunting stores after an early Summer release and all these months later!
Lancome took me right to the Riviera with their Summer 2010 Collection!
I was almost a cave dweller with Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shine as my guiding light!
The Target Look Book for Spring and Summer 2010 enthralled many of us!
Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams made a major splash with many of us!
I’m still not sure which I loved more this Summer, Lorac’s Hollywood Hot List…..
Or Lorac’s Little Black Palette….!
Wet n Wild ColorIcon Collection was the bestest beauty budget purchase evers!
I loved it so much I decided to convince everyone they NEEDED the DuWop Flight Stick!
Avon’s Sunset Glow Bronzer wasn’t only beautiful, it was an affordable Summer makeup find as well!
Essence Surfer Babe Collection hit Ulta as the first limited edition collection from the brand within the US and boy are we so hopeful it won’t be the last!
Urban Decay Urban Defense defended my Summer skin against the sun and made it look super flawless!
Too bad Stila’s Pro Artist Palette was such a snore!
I hit the Beach Club with Bobbi Brown!
