When I think of makeup I really need, Estee Lauder New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape ($70) comes to mind! Or maybe NOT yet but in the future when I start experiencing some sag I can see this becoming my best friend.
This transforming “liquid tape” is formulated with fast acting polymers which gives your facial skin and complexion a tighter feel and fix. You can use it to tone your skin and give it a more sculpted appearance or even give your eyes a little lift (lord knows my tired eyes could use a lift!).
Simply apply it to clean, dry skin by starting at your brow bone and moving up towards the temples, now hold for a moment and allow it to set! Try using it at the corners of your mouth and sweep it to your cheekbones to give yourself a lifted look. The product dries, sets, and tightens skin giving you a more sculpted look.
Laugh all you want but someday soon we’re all going to need a little tape to keep it altogether.
Know what I mean?
Estee Lauder New Dimension Expert Liquid Tape is available now at your favorite Estee Lauder counter or at Nordstrom.com.
Grab up the Urban Decay Vice LTD for $39 at Ulta.com today. So funny because this palette when it released really had people jumping through hoops. First it popped up at Sephora, sold out fast, and everyone was told it would never, ever be made again. It proceeded to go through some sort of denial phase as well where we had rumors floating around it was even real. Finally it popped up in other stores for sale but still quickly selling out fast.
Now you can get it for $39 bucks.
If you don’t have it, grab it now!
Makeup dupes? I haz ’em!
Eyeshadow, lipgloss, makeup dupes, a controversial sometimes touchy topic for some. One thing I’ve learned about us makeup addicts we take dupes very, very seriously. Well some of us do. I don’t. I’m the worst kind of consumer that has 500 of the exact same eyeshadow shade! Wasteful? Maybe! Hoarder? Possibly! It’s just…something about owning a variety of eyeshadows in the same shade but with a different texture? I dunno, I’m making asinine excuses for myself here.
I’ve personally broken down makeup dupes into the following categories.
The “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” Makeup Dupe
This is the dupe that’s a spot on duplication of a favorite shade and even the formula is exactly the same! This is a rare find for the true makeup connoisseur because I always find dupes are an either/or kinda situation. Either you get a spot on dupe for the color but not the formula or the shade is identical to your favorite shade but the formula sucks.
The “Close but no Cigar” Makeup Dupe
This is the dupe that ALMOST looks like your favorite shade but isn’t exactly the same.
The “Are you freaking serious?” Make Dupe
This is the ridiculous dupe that gets recommended to you by a friend or a fellow makeup addict. For example, when you’re recommended the L.A. Girl Beauty Brick Eyeshadow Collection and you’re told it’s a dupe or a lot “like” the Urban Decay Naked Palette. Yeah, sure, right.
What kinda of makeup dupe addict are you?

And we’re off! Another day, another MAC Fix+ to review! Today the MAC Yuzu Prep + Prime Fix+ which is one of several new, limited edition fragranced Fix+ formulas.
What a shame that the MAC Prep + Prime Fix+ Extensions are only available for a limited time (and damn, selling out fast!) but I have hopes if they are popular enough that MAC might bring them back next year in new scents. I realize not everyone loves scented skincare but I’m personally a lover of fragrance in my skincare. It doesn’t upset my skin and I feel like it adds a little to the luxury of the product so I’m all about it.
Let’s take a look at Yuzu Prep + Prime Fix+ and see if you need it.
