Victoria’s Secret Pink Holiday Collection for Holiday 2011

Victoria’s Secret is getting all festive with their Pink Collection and introducing three new scents for a limited time. Excited much?

Not me.

I’m so not a Pink fan but my sister would probably suck it back like a cocktail if I poured it into a fancy glass with olives so I guess I better go explore as I’ll probably end up hauling alot of it for her Christmas stocking.

Whipping out your best smoky eye for the holiday season?

I’m not. Dude, smoky totally makes me look tired lately. I’m whipping out my best brown smoky eye…

Bare Minerals A Toast to Tints Review, Swatches, Photos

A few days some of Bare Escentuals Holiday 2011 Collection popped into my mail box. One of the items included in the envelope that I tore open with my teeth was the new A Toast to Tints Trio.

Now…I wasn’t really reading at the time, I was merely foaming at the mouth, teeth bared, and OMG so excited about NEW MAKEUPZ so I didn’t read the box on these tints, I simply ripped them out of their packaging, and started applying to my lips like a mad woman. Promptly after I scrunched up my face and mouthed, “Ewww! WTH?!”

I wasn’t particularly keen on the formula…

Parissa Brow Shaped and Assorted Wax Strips Review

My dad likes to tease my mum, telling her that we (my sister and I) are probably the milkman’s children. Shrug…..these people have been married as long as the grass has been green so I guess it’s ok that they tease each other about this kinda stuff.

Personally I think he’s wrong. My dad wasn’t the milkman, he was probably an ape because I’m one hell of a hairy beast. No shame in my game. My brows and stash are out of control, it’s a scary fact or should I say hairy fact?

Thank you beauty gods for wax what would I do without you? Oh yeah, I’d be a monkey that’s what. I prefer not dealing with the drama of waxing my own brows or upper lip. It’s just easier to head to the salon and have them do the dirty deed for me. I actually go to these really sweet Korean girl’s who own a local shop here……sometimes they’ll start chitchatting with each other as I lay on the table in fear. My Korean isn’t particularly great so I suspect the conversation goes something like, Cho Hee: “Oh my God, girlfriend is so hairy!” “I’m going to take a quickie cellphone pic while she lays here with her eyes closed and post it on the Internet…”! Sun Jung: “Oh do it, we get mad hits on the Internetz with a picture of the Muse’s hairy upper lip!”

Yup, they are so discussing my hairiness with words like chum-shim thrown in that’s obviously a clue about how they are talking about hairiness, nods, for serious (heavy sarcasm here).

When I don’t have time to go see Cho and Sun I have to take matters into my own hands at home so that’s why wax strips are such an easy way to go. The kind with the wax built right into the strip makes is an ideal way to zip off hair in a flash. However, many of these drugstore kits aren’t exactly the best and they leave behind alot of stray hair.

Until now. Thank you Parissa for making super wax strips to remove even the most stubborn hair!
