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.
NYX has a brand new nude, naked, natural palette for us folk who enjoy a more natural look!
The NYX Butt Naked Eyes Makeup Palette definitely looks interesting!
My Sephora Holiday 2011 Catalog popped into my mailbox a few days ago. Did you get yours?
I enjoy taking photos of for my International readers plus discussing it with those who have gotten their catalog.
Let’s have a look!
I’d feel terribly weird if I gifted a friend with haircare for the Holidays. 1. My friends wouldn’t appreciate it as not alot of them are heavily into beauty plus many of them are geeky guys and 2. It makes feel like I’m gifting deodorant or something. “Oh hai here is a gift of shampoo for the holidays, you haz bad hair day!” Know what I mean?
So I decided to gift MYSELF with the Wen Cleansing Conditioners with Gift Boxes from QVC. All the reasons I listed above for not gifting to friends, well, that’s probably a cop out because I’m selfish and wanted this set all for myself.
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!
