Spring Collections 2011
Wet n Wild has a release of four new, limited edition Vanite ColorIcon Eye & Lip Quartet Palettes. Each palette has a “princess” theme with two lipglosses and two shadows.
I have to say I dislike the over use of “ColorIcon” as I commonly associate the name with the awesome six pan palettes. I will say I liked the idea of these because believe me a few years ago you couldn’t get me to touch such inexpensive makeup as I was simply too snobbish to bother however brands have evovled, Wet n Wild being one, and more recent releases are surprisely good for the price. However, they are made in China which could make or break the deal for some.
I purchased these at Harmons for $3.99 each.
Let’s have a look and see what I thought!Read More...
Thanks to Etude House I’m on this wicked orange/tangerine kick lately! I’ve been digging all the shades of orange, coral, peach, and tangerine I have in my stash and indulging in many other products in the same shades.
Korean brand, Etude House, has two new palettes released with their Miss Tangerine Collection that features some brilliant shades of tangerine.
Here’s my take on the Etude House Miss Tangerine LUCIDarling Fantastic Gradation Eyes Palette.Read More...
Pixi has a new Radiance Powder that I can squeal over this Spring. Remember the Pixi Lumi Luxe Bronzer Palette I loved so much last year?
This is a follow up palette in the same vein but not a bronzer, a highlighter!

Ok, finally, the deets on the Tarte Today’s Special Value are here!
Here’s the info you’ve been dying for, the Tarte 8th World of Wonder Best of the Amazon 7 Piece Clay Collection colors and shade selections for both the June and October kits.
- Liner: Rich Green
- Gloss: Pink Grapefruit
- Blush: Tickled
- Eyeshadow Quad: Shimmering Olive, Matte Espresso, Shimmering Gold, and Matte Softest Peach
- Liner: Deep Bronze
- Gloss: Shimmering Raspberry
- Blush: Passion
- Eyeshadow Quad: Shimmering Buff, Shimmering Sable, Shimmering Cocoa, and Matte Coffee Bean
Quick note, as with the blush in the first set, I’m noticing none of these are shades offered in the Amazonian Clay Blush Collection at Sephora so they seem to be new, exclusive shades to the set. Another words those who have been wanting to head into a purchase and were worried about the sets having the same shades you’re seeing at Sephora can rest assured that you’re looking at brand new colors!
That’s all dears!
Hope it helps!
Note: Please do not repost these images on other sites or forums without e-mailing me first. Thank you!
Ok, I was going to wait on this post because I wanted to get ALL the info before I posted it. But I’m going to burst if I have to sit on it for much longer!

Victoria’s Secret has several shades of a new Love Me Wild Radiant Face Trio. I thought these were LE (VS’s website listed them as such) but they have a place right on the general catalog shelf so I guess they are sticking around for a while?

KATE is a Japanese branch off brand from Kanebo. KATE has always been the edgier, goth-y older sister in Kanebo’s brand line up. I’ve always loved the palettes they do but as I’ve gotten older I enjoy them even more since many of the shades selections include some nice nude, natural colors.
The new KATE Crystallise Quartz Eyeshadow Palettes are a brand new palette that launched for Spring. Honestly, if you’re a fan of the brand this is kinda a rehash of what KATE does season after season after season. New method of application but same old shades. If you never tried KATE this will prove a very exciting adventure however those who are old hat to the brand, like me, might feel it’s a bit repetitive.

Have you seen Bobbi’s new concealer video? Check it out at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com/learn
I love how Bobbi makes everything look so incredibly easy!
The new Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit is a new breed of Bobbi’s popular concealer. The formula is improved and not only conceals your under eye woes but also maintains your skin’s moisture levels so your concealer always looks fresh.
Here are my thoughts on her new concealer!Read More...
I was in traffic court earlier today to pick up a mate for lunch. Funny story as I was waiting for him in the back of the court room (he’s a cop) and his phone goes off as the Judge is speaking and starts playing the The Defranco Family, Love Beat.
I had haul ass out of the room fast because I was about to burst out laughing and was highly in danger of saying WTF?
Word to the wise, always turn down the ringer on your phone particularly when it has bad 70′s ring tones on it!
How about you guys?
Any of your friends have embarrassing or weird ring tones? I guess mine can be considered completely goofy, Doctor Who Theme Song.
Anyway, back on the top of makeup! How’s Hello Kitty Beauty been treating you at Sephora?
I was trying out the Hello Kitty Say Hello Palette Happy Fun Palette this week.
Here’s my word.Read More...
How did I miss the Bath and Body Works Liplicious Tasty Lip Color Best Kiss ?
This was introduced for Valentine Day but I somehow missed it. It’s one of those clear glosses that turns that perfect shade of pink, yeah, I know, what a gimmick.
But I so want it!
It starts off clear and turns pink plus it has a rush of juicy strawberry flavor!
I better get to my local BBW before it’s gone, hey, since it’s from V-Day do I get the clearance price ha!
Imagine a gorgeous natural pink lipstick and gloss designed to perfectly offset denim. Interesting idea right?
Well that’s exactly what the Lipstick Queen’s Jean Queen Collection is all about.

Are you a bad girl or a goody two shoes?
Adam Ant made me WANT to be a goody two shoes, I had fantasies about how he would make me his bad girl.
Wow, retro 80′s moment. Sorry.
Well, speaking of being bad…Benefit Bad Gal Waterproof Liner has two new shades available for your purchasing pleasure.
Let’s check ‘em out!Read More...
Just a quick post about the Tarte Today’s Special Value on QVC. I know some of you are having issues picking your shade. It’s difficult for me to recommend shades having never seen the actual product and also by getting comments saying, “Hey, I’m a MAC NC30, which shade am I?” or “I use Bare Escentuals Light, which shade am I?” That’s like asking me to pick a needle out of a hay stack ha! It’s kinda hard picking a foundation shade for someone I’ve never seen plus having never used this new foundation from Tarte I really don’t have hands on info what the shades look like.
But Tarte compiled a list of celebs for you to match up the foundation shades so maybe this will make things a little easier when you’re selecting your shade for the kit.
Hopefully this helps you choose your right shade!
