Pur Minerals Natural Knockout Set Review, Swatches, Photos

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….

Sephora Friends and Family 2011 Info and Details

This info isn’t confirmed as of yet but you can visit www.sephora.com/friends and hopefully updated info will become available soon!

Thanks to my reader chibi today for giving us early deets on the Sephora Friends and Family 2011 Event.

The offer kinda sorta makes me cry this year as it’s a one time use code you can use. Where as in the past Sephora offered a universal code (ie FF2010, FF2009, etc..) this year you have to visit the site between October 20th thru November 2nd for a one time use code.

In years past I’d do an order for myself followed up by an order for Friends and Family. And heck sometimes I’d do a third order if something popped up that I wanted or something I forgot in my first order, etc….limiting me to a single code is going to really kill my joy.

Chibi also shares that the in store event will not be via coupon. Instead a photo ID and your physical BI card will have to brought to the store to get the discount.

Mally Clear Poreless Face Defender Liquid Review, Swatches, Photos

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.

MAC Missy Piggy Collection

in MAC

What?

MAC Miss Piggy Collection you say? She’s a style icon so of course, she’ll need her own MAC Collection!

If rumors spread across the Specktra forum are true and they usually are, the MAC Miss Piggy Collection will launch in November exclusively online.

Although don’t get TOO excited…seems it might be a mod pink lippie, some lashes, and liner…..

Darn, I could so use some retro pastel purple and blue eyeshadow. I couldn’t pull off Gaga’s pink shade so no way can I do Piggy’s but hey, I’ll need it anyway being the hardcore Muppet fan I am!

Tarina Tarantino Beauty Conditioning Lip Sheen Review, Swatches, Photos

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.
