the+balm+cabana+boy

Yes well I know you’ve had to listen to me biatch myself blue about how the Balm Cabana Boy mysteriously disappeared off the shelves of Sephora soon after I told you about. What the hell? It’s a total conspiracy they so didn’t want me to have this blush!

Well the bad news is you’ll have to listen to one more post about the Balm Cabana Boy before I finally bring you a review of it.

Yes, yes you guessed it. It’s available at Sephora! OMG! Everyone rejoice! All hail Cabana Boy! Thank gawd. I was liable to throw myself off a roof in protest if I didn’t get me some of this soon. The baby jebus finally heard my prayers.

Wants it?

Go gets it!

The saga of Cabana boy is now closed. For more epic posts about it do a search on my blog and read your heart out chicas!

Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub Of All Review

Soap+%26+Glory+The+Greatest+Scrub+Of+All+003

Well Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub of All isn’t my greatest love of all but I will say it’s cheap and works pretty good for the price!

Click it to hear the review!

I’m kinda sadly in lust with Soap & Glory. I can’t help myself I tend to want to try anything and everything they release. I told you ALL about the Soap & Glory Skincare line a few months ago and was ever so happy at how quickly it decided to make the trip to US shores.

Soon after it arrived on Target store shelves I proceeded to slap much of it in my cart supermarket sweep style and haul it home for a good testing. Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub Of All is a rather great, inexpensive way to strip dull, dead skin off your face to reveal fresher, healthier skin. Granted, this doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of say Philosophy or Lush but it’s worthy of a pick up if you’re a lover of Soap & Glory or you’re just wanting to scrub down on the cheap!

Soap+%26+Glory+The+Greatest+Scrub+Of+All+001

Although I wish that Soap & Glory might extend their signature scent to their skin care it has yet to happen. This scrub is very lightly and freshly scented. It’s a basic scrub with little spheres of joy that pop open as you scrub, w00t! The scrub does a nice job of scrubbing my dry skin without causing my skin to feel tight. Yes, indeed, it’s possible to fall victim to the dreaded over scrub and end up with drier skin instead of softer. This is gentle enough not to strip or make my skin drier than it already is.

If it’s inexpensive you seek with an edge of shabby chic cuteness Soap & Glory The Greatest Scrub Of All is your gal! Don’t blame me if you break into sudden song (Whit’s making a come back maybe she’ll take on the theme for S&G)!


Snag it at your local Target.

Anyone try?

Love?

Twilight Beauty Cosmetics: Twilight-Inspired Makeup Collection

twilight+beauty+cosmetics

Spoiled Pretty has the deets on the new Twilight inspired cosmetic collection. We already knew that DuWop was busy creating something special for us in the works that was Twilight themed but I don’t think ANYONE has realized how big a collection this is turning out to be.

Click it below to read the deets!

Yes well call me what you will but I’m a fan of Twilight so I’m excited to see how this line turns out. My original thought was DuWop would create a small selection of items to pair up with the new V Gloss they introduced earlier this month. Nope, not the case. It’s even bigger and better than that!

The beauty line actually consists of two separate collections. It’s actually entitled Twilight Beauty so they are taking this above and beyond a simple release from one brand.

Twilight Beauty will launch two different lines of cosmetics which will be entitled Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available with the second film’s release this Fall.

Spoiled Pretty reports that Esmy Manica and Kimbery Clark of All About Beauty and Cristina Bartolucci, the founder and Creative Director of DuWop Cosmetics, are part of the development team behind the Twilight Beauty Cosmetic Line.

The line will include over 70 products!!!!!! Holy cow! That’s a brand all in itself so you can see how interesting this is shaping up to be.

Luna Twilight is inspired by the female characters of the books with an array of soft, natural beauty looks and stunning, fierce ones. Some products will include First Light Body and Face Glow and Gleam Metallic Mascara.

Volturi Twilight is inspired by the Volturi family crest. The line features Foreshadow Primer which is coupled with a loose glitter dust called Labrynth Shadows. These loose powder shadows are supposedly highly pigmented and are housed in stackable pots providing the ability to mix and match colors.

Luna Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 at Dillardís and Nordstrom. Volturi Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 through specialty retailers. Both lines will be sold at TwilightBeauty.com, the exclusive website for both brands.

I’m highly interested in checking this out for myself as I’m curious about colors, products, and prices.

What do you think?

Love the idea of an entire line dedicateto Twilight?

Not so much?

Musings of the Day: Picture Perfect and Airbrushed Finish!

I was just looking at the new Temptu AIRbrush Makeup System on Sephora and hoping I’d win the lotto so I can make extremely over indulgent airbrush gadgetry purchases.

I’ve never been airbrushed before but when I’m rich and famous I plan to airbrush every part of my face and body thanks so much.

Which brings me to my Musings for today! Would you use an in home airbrush system to get yourself picture perfect? Have you used one before? What did you think?

musings

Tell the Muse and click below to hear my tale!

As luxurious and incredible as an airbrush of my very own sounds I so know I’d make an utter mess of application. I’d probably end up foundationing my bathroom walls instead of my face knowing how goofy I am. I can’t recall the system but I remember seeing an infomercial a few years ago with an in home airbrush system and totally being sold on it and almost buying the bloody thing!

I’ve never had the airbrush experience but I’d totally be up for trying it out. Sephora should offer to test this out, I’d be first in line!

What do you think?

Loves the thought of an at home airbrush system?

Leaves it?
