Guerlain Parure Compact Foundation will set you back a whopping $78 bucks. Not necessarily a bad thing if you love gorgeous makeup but let me take a second to introduce you to the Lorac Event Out Complexion Kit which is just as gorgeous, just as luxe, and a fraction of the cost.
Wanna see it?
For the record Marie Antoinette probably never uttered the words, “Let Them Eat Cake!” but lord knows it’s one of those saying that has stuck around for centuries and in some ways has been romanticized to the max.
Whether you’re fond lover of Miss Antoinette, the French, or simply the saying “Let Them Eat Cake!”, you might very well find the joy in TokyoMilk Bon Bon Lip Balm in Let Them Eat Cake.
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.
- 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…
I did get a few MAC Dare to Wear shades to try out.
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!
August 11th peeps that means we are nearly half way through the month and you, if you’re in high school or college, have probably already started shopping for your return to class.
Yay….heavy sarcasm on the yay there because most of you are probably groaning and dragging your butts to Target, Staples, and Walmart whining all the way. Sucks going back after all that time off doesn’t it? But hey embrace it! It’s the best time of the year to experience new beauty, skincare, cosmetics, and other bits and bobs.

I’ll be spotlighting cosmetics, skincare, and other fab little finds for those of you heading Back to School!
Jump ahead for my first pick and keep it tuned in for new finds daily to make Back to School easier and cheaper!
