MAC Dare to Wear Eyeshadow Review and Swatches

MAC Dare to Wear Eye Shadow 1

Aptly named Dare to Wear is a collection of crazily vibrant shades of MAC eyes shadows and lip glosses, daring you to wear such bold shades.

MAC Dare to Wear is what MAC C-Shock was to me three years ago, a reintroduction of what MAC does best, awe aspiring shades of shadow.

Maybe….

  • A. I’m getting too old.
  • B. I hated the finish on most of these.
  • C. I’m off the MAC bandwagon

Because I totally did not roll over and play dead when I saw this collection pop up. I’m in this brown eyeshadow stage right now, a place where I never thought I’d be, and aquas, greens, and my normal crazy shades of color are simply not as appealing as more neutral shades lately so maybe that’s what triggered my less than stellar excitement upon seeing Dare to Wear. Plus I kinda felt like the mattes and frost finishes prevented me from bothering as well…

Anyway!

I did get a few MAC Dare to Wear shades to try out.

Wanna peep?

Lumene Vitamin C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar Review and Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance 24 Hour Lotion Review

Lumene skin care always garners some of my attention because hey, you purchase this shiz at your local drugstore for affordable prices and get the benefits of a posher brand of skin care for a considerably less than counter brands.

Loves that right?

I have a love affair with the Lumene Vitamin C+ Energy Cocktail so recently on a foray through CVS I came across the new Lumene Vitamin C+ Bright Skin Radiance Nectar which promises to whiten and brighten up my skin. Aw hells to the yes. You know I’m all about brighter, whiter skin. They also have a new Lumene Vitamin C+ Pure Radiance 24 Hour Lotion to go along with the serum. Happy Days!

Beauty Most Unusual: There Could Be Spunk in Your Junk!

Sperm Skincare

Remember when Julia on Nip/Tuck started selling a La Mer-like facial cream which contained…ahem….semen.

Hell I even read on the Internetz that Cleopatra used sperm in her facial cream and even bathed in it….god I love the Internet for creating incredibly crazy stuff up, don’t you? Cosmo’s Sexy Beauty Secrets Blog even reveals a sperm facial is a fantastic experience…..I will not say anything cheeky, I will not say anything cheeky…Going rate for a Sperm Facial? A whopping $250 bucks but mind you the article was published in 2009 so do you think the sperm facials have went up considerably due to the recession? Gasp, maybe it’s $350 now!  Damn inflation

Yeah well the fact of the matter is there are 100’s of articles in and around the Internet that say spunk in your junk is actually really great for your skin…..

What do you think?
