Bloggerati Spotlight

Published in: Just For Fun

The Beauty Bloggerati

Morning, ladies. Looks like we made it to Friday. 🙂

Did you do anything fun last night? I didn’t do much, but I did go to a movie with El Hub. We saw Paranormal Activity, the new Blair Witchy (because it’s also filmed with a shaky camera) horror flick.

Maybe because of the way it’s filmed (almost like a grainy YouTube video), it scared the bejeezus out of me, but one of the main characters (the boyfriend) kept tempting fate and driving me nuts!

While I pound my coffee to jump start some neurons, let’s see what the girls in Daily Makeover’s Beauty Bloggerati have been up to this week…

Have a great day today (TGIF!).

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


Having Fun with Benefit Celebutante and Powderazzi: A Quick Tutorial

Published in: Makeup Tips/How To

Heya, ladies. A few days ago I discovered the benefits of Benefit’s holiday kits in Celebutante and Powderazzi.

Tonight I thought I’d revisit that post, adding an eye map and a breakdown of the steps I followed.

It’s an easy shimmery pewter eye/plum lip combo, and you won’t need an arsenal of tools (just fingers and a couple eye brushes) or time spent blending. I can see myself wearing this on rushed mornings when I “accidentally” hit the snooze button one too many times (oops!). 🙂

Soap and Glory Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths: Watch Out, Waterproof!

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Product Reviews, Skin Care


Greetings and good morning, girls. 🙂 How did you sleep? Following yesterday’s makeup look, I wanted to touch on makeup removal, particularly Soap & Glory’s Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths ($7 for a pack of 25).

To find out how these oversized, velvet-soft wipes fare against long-wearing and waterproof makeup like MAC Fluidline, Stila Lash Visor Mascara and Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter liner, I put ’em to the test.

What about the waterline?

Most makeup wipes can handle regular-wear products, but many struggle when it comes to removing waterproof. That, and some take too much effort (read: rubbing) to use along my delicate waterline.

Soap & Glory says they created Off Your Face Cleansing Cloths to help women multitask, with the wipes cleansing, toning, removing makeup and exfoliating in one fell swoop.

How’d they do?
