I went to CVS today just to browse and walked out with way too much crap. I'm taking some of it back, actually -- because it sucks. I need to do something about impulse shopping, especially at CVS where almost everything is overpriced by at least a buck or two. Anyway, I finally picked up a mascara I've been meaning to try, but was trying to be responsible and limit my mascara intake so that I didn't end up wasting any tubes. I am a hardcore mascara junkie trying to pass this mascara-rehab situation with flying colors. So the pretty purple tube pulled me in -- the flesh is weak. I liked the original Covergirl LashBlast, but I didn't looove it. The original promised lots of volume, and this new LashBlast Fusion promises volume and length (a CG first) -- but does it deliver?
I know you're thinking "Damn, another NYX post?!", but I promise you guys I'm not working for NYX. I just happen to have a decent amount of their products and I love just about all of what I own. I was rummaging thru my stash this morning, looking for a red lipstick other than my trusty MAC So Scarlet (LE). I wanted to show another color from another brand some love today, and then I remembered two shades by NYX that I couldn't go wrong with. I swear finding things you haven't used in a while and rediscovering why you love them is such a fabulous feeling. Do you guys realize it's 2010 and there are still women out there who haven't attempted a sexy red lip?? Mainly because they're terrified at the very thought of rocking a bright, bold red lip. Are you one of them?
Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers out there! Especially to my own mom, who is probably the silliest woman I know...and where I get my everything from. She taught me how to cook, how to live and how to love. A phenomenal 52 year old powerhouse who acts 25 and appreciates the present moment while living each day is if it were her last. I couldn't ask for a better mom. I know she's probably reading this, so I love you mom! Hope you cook soon...I'm hungry! So now that all of that mushy stuff is out of the way, it's Pink on Brown time! Cue the cheesy 70's style game show music :|
If there was one lip product in my entire collection that I could take out to dinner, it'd be my NYX Mega Shine lip glosses ($5.50). These babies hold a very special place in my heart. They are beyond "holy grail" material for me, I seriously cannot live without these...it's that serious. Reason being is that they're super inexpensive, feel awesome on my lips, and look amazing. I'm all about stretching my dollar like spandex on the biggest booty in the world, so these are definitely a win-win.
I can't even begin to tell you how far drugstore foundations have come over the years. I remember back in high school, every girl who wore foundation had a ring around her shirt collar. It was a dead, orangey giveaway that was never flattering. I always saw it after gym class, when she'd be all sweaty and crap. Her makeup would melt off and party on her shirt collar -ugh. I never wanted to have that symbolic orangey brown makeup collar so I avoided foundations altogether. I just felt they'd look cakey and unnatural, so I was like "Screw it!".
You know that Lady Gaga song 'Beautiful Dirty Rich'? The part when she goes "Bang bang bang...bang bang bang"? Well that's what I sing in my head when I see these new Superglasses from MAC. When I heard about the Superglasses, and saw photos of them, I just knew I HAD to have these. An amped up version of the popular Dazzleglasses? Sign me the hell up! I absolutely LOVE the Dazzleglasses, they are probably my favorite "gloss" product from MAC. I never wear them alone really, except maybe Love Alert because it's so pigmented, but I love putting a tiny bit of it on top of my lipstick to really jack up the drama. Well, if you really want some 'Real Housewives of MAC Cosmetics' drama on your lips, cue the Superglass...
