Lipstick Queen Screen Siren Lipsticks

The new Lipstick Queen Screen Siren Lipsticks, $50 each, available now in six shades

Sometimes, all a sister wants is to sit on the couch all damned day long eating crunchy things out of bags… Potato chips, Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies, maybe a few chocolate-chip macadamia nut cookies if they’re readily available.

And sometimes she doesn’t.

Sometimes, a sister wants to tower over the pyramids in leading lady leather high heels and femme fatale false lashes and big hair visible from space! :)

It’s the latter times when these new Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Lipsticks are extra nice.

See Me (a peach) and Play It (a hot pink)

Glossy, glamorous shades inspired by the sirens of the silver screen, these pricey pretties are a shock-inducing $50 a tube, but at least they satisfy like a Snickers bar. The creamy formula slips onto lips like a silk dress, leaving behind a finish so shiny that even the haughtiest, naughtiest vixen would purr.

Super fans of the Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick line may also love these. They’re around the same price, with similarly high levels of pigment (so high they could touch the sky!) and a preternaturally smooth, moisturizing formula. Depending on the shade, they also last on my lips around the same 3-5 hours.

Dastardly Dilemmas: You Can Only Have One Face Product (A Specific Blush, Bronzer, Foundation, Tinted Moisturizer, BB Cream, Etc.) for the Rest of Your Life. What Is It?

Published in: Just For Fun

Oh, the humanity!

I don’t know what sinister force keeps making me come up with these cruel, twisted beauty scenarios, but I’m sorry. :)

For my answer, I want to say MAC Face & Body, because I’ve used it for years, I love the dewy finish, and I can trust that it won’t give me breakouts or scoot and slide around once it’s on, but…

This is so twisted!

As much as it would pain me to forsake foundation (and it WOULD pain me), I am non-functional and Halloween costume-caliber frightening if I don’t have at least a hint of color on my face, so I’m going to go with the NARS Orgasm/Laguna Duo

With a bit of bronzer and a dash of blush, Karen is a happy cookie.

Dastardly dilemmas: You can only have one face product (a specific blush, bronzer, foundation, tinted moisturizer, BB cream, etc.) for the rest of your life. What is it?

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

P.S. Happy hump day!

Hello, Frat Boy Blush by theBalm

Published in: Daily Beauty

theBlam Frat Boy Blush (2)

Whenever I like something a lot, I give it a nickname (El Hub, T-Money, RyGos — you know what I do).

So, I have a nickname for this blush by theBalm…

I call it Frat Boy Slim.

Get it? Frat Boy Slim? :)

Yeah, OK, I really need to get that “too easily amused” issue taken care of one of these days.

I adore this warm peachy pink matte powder blush to pieces. It blends out perfectly, and it lends that healthy, just-pinched look to my cheeks.

Think NARS Orgasm, but without the golden shimmer.

Oh, and bonus! — on the inside of the pan, it has the phrase, “Beaucoup d’hommes mais si peu de temps…” which I believe means something like, “So many men, so little time…”

Now, why didn’t they teach us cheeky phrases like that in high school French?!

Frat Boy ($21) is available now at theBalm counters and online.

The Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting EyeShadow 5-Color Palette in Infamous Sky

If I had a black-tie beachside gala to go to — assuming that there is such a thing — I’d be all about the browns and blues in this eyeshadow palette.

I want to go to there…ideally with Christopher Meloni (I’m sure El Hub would be cool with that). I like the idea of wearing shimmery sandy browns with a hint of sky blue as I snack on fancy scallop-kabobs washed down with bubbly. :)

Yup, Estee Lauder’s new Infamous Sky Palette ($50) suits that dream nicely…

Infamous Sky is one of the new Pure Color Envy Sculpting EyeShadow 5-Colors, a new line of creamy, plush powder eyeshadow palettes that partner wearable neutrals with richer pops of color, and they’re available now at Estee Lauder counters and also online.

L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blush Is a Tad Too Short-Lived to Be a Minor Makeup Miracle

L'Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blush Review

The new L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes, $12.99 each

One day you may find yourself half-jokingly agreeing to run a half marathon.

Then, later, as the illustrious day approaches, you may find yourself hoping that the people who invited you to run the race with them, forget (oh please, oh please, oh please!).

Chances are, they won’t.

So you start training.

During your first 10-mile training run on the treadmill, maybe you develop a wicked case of chafing, and maybe it’s directly under the middle strap of your sports bra, right there on your solar plexus.

Maybe it hurts (it does, a lot).

And maybe the only painkillers that seem to work at all are happy thoughts.

Happy thoughts about happy things, like blush. :) Like the new L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes ($12.99 each, and available in three shades).

Hello, genius! That’s what these new blurring blushes are, especially if you’re a dame of a certain age (if you catch my drift).

Imagine the slick, slippery, silicone-like feel of a Smashbox primer, but in more natural-looking colors, like light peach, medium pink and medium berry.

Introducing the L’Oreal Visible Lift Blur Blushes.

They feel kind of like a mousse…and I think they definitely make the skin tone and texture of my cheeks look more even and smoother.

These are really great disciplinarians when it comes to those pores that are constantly trying to out-diva each other. I have some on the apples of my cheeks that are like Christina, Mariah, Beyonce and Celine, and these blushes make everyone play nice. :)

Whenever I wear one of them, my pores look mellower and smaller (but aren’t completely gone, of course), and I swear my skin looks smoother.
