Contrary to what I might believe, Digipop is not the latest boy band from Korea it’s the latest MAC Collection. Well, doh!
No seriously, doesn’t it sound like some sort of band? Ok, maybe that’s just me.
MAC Digi-Pops Collection made its debut earlier this Summer exclusively at Nordstrom. During pre-booking I was super excited to play with Digi-Pops myself so I headed over to Nordies and promptly became utterly disgusted at the display. Nordstrom, baby, mama loves you but please clean up your act. I was appalled at the condition of the collection. One of the things I was really interested in exploring were the new Digi-Pops Dazzle Lipsticks and they were just so terribly gross that I couldn’t even bear to look at them never mind swatch them. The lipsticks were squashed and smushed down to the core, just really a hot mess.
Needless to say I didn’t bother pre-booking any of it because I couldn’t get a feel for the product in that condition.
Lucky enough MAC has released the Dazzle Lipsticks and they are in, thank god, way better condition than the Nordie’s ones were.
Ahhh Benefit Magic Ink steps us into the first Fall 2010 release from the brand. Liquid liner junkies rejoice, a new precise liquid liner from your friends at Benefit.
Will you haul it?
Egyptians believed that the dead would need their organs in the afterlife so they stored some of them in canopic jars. Don’t ask me why but my morbid little brain instantly compared the new Josie Maran Argan Lip Treatment to one of those canopic jars only difference is Josie isn’t storing a stomach or an intestine in this little jar, she’s storing a lip treatment that’s rather delicious and awesome.
And those of us who adore Epyptian history may find the joy in the little jar it comes stored in, gross organ parts aside of course.
Dude, disgusting story time…
On holiday recently I had taken a bus with some friends to Universal Studios. On the return trip someone on the bus removed their shoes and OMG I swear I almost passed out.
I had a hard time holding back my friend Jai as he’s just the type to stand up and say, “Holy shiz who’s feet are smokin’?” But seriously, if you know your feet are the type to sweat and smell why REMOVE your shoes and torture everyone!? How sadistic!
Needless to say they should have grabbed some of the new Avon Footworks Collection to scrub, hydrate, and scent those stale tootsies back into shape again!
Avon FootWorks now comes in a range of funky cool scents (not of the gross foot smell variety) like Cherry Ice and Watermelon!

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!

I’m still not sure which I loved more this Summer, Lorac’s Hollywood Hot List…..

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!
