The $36 Too Faced Totally Cute Palette (WITH STICKERS!)

Is this supposed to be for adults, or for children? Or adults who act like children?

I don’t even care because it’s totally cute. The $36 Too Faced Totally Cute Palette is…totally cute.

It comes with two sheets of stickers — not one, but two! — which are adorable to the Nth degree.

Sticker time!

The 10-year-old version of Karen (the one who hoarded ALL THE LISA FRANK) only wishes there was also a unicorn.

Oh, wait…

And if you ever get past the stickers, there’s also a palette (haha!) with nine brand new powder eyeshadows shades — three warm matte neutrals (yay!), two shimmery beige highlighting shades and four jewel tones, all of which blend with the preternatural smoothness of a silky unicorn’s mane.

What Are Your Winged Liner Woes?

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup, Too Faced

too-faced-sketch-markers

I’ve been thinking a lot about winged liner (a.k.a. cat eyeliner) lately.

More than usual.

Maybe it’s because of all the liners that’ve been launching lately, like the colorful Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliners at the top.

How often do you think about winged liner? How often do you wear it? And what are your winged liner woes and struggles? I’d like to help.

Are your wings always uneven? Are your lash lines always a different thickness? Whatever your winged liner woes, tell me about them in the comments. Maybe I can help. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

What’s Nude From bareMinerals? The New Gen Nude Lipsticks, Lipglosses and Lip Liners

Published in: bareMinerals, Lips, Makeup, Product Reviews

Some lusicous lip treats from the new bareMinerals Gen Nude collection

Unsolicited advice of the day
Next time someone asks you to send them some nudes…

  1. Keep your clothes on (generally, this seems to be a good idea).
  2. Send them a pic of the new bareMinerals Gen Nudes lipsticks, lipglosses and liners instead. It’ll be hilarious, I tell ya (well, at least you and I will be laughing, hahaha!).

This one’s a MASSIVE 60-piece lippie release of products bound for the bareMinerals permanent line, including 20 Matte Liquid Lipcolors ($18 each), 20 Radiant Lipsticks ($20 each), 15 Buttercream Lipglosses ($18 each) and 5 Under Over Lip Liners ($16 each) in a bashful-busting array of nude mauve, pink, peach and beige shades.

That’s A LOT of lip nudity, and even if you’ve never found your perfect nude pout before, you might find it here.

bareMinerals Gen Nude Buttercream Lipglosses in Snarky, Popular and Far Out ($18 each)

The non-sticky, moderately moisturizing bareMinerals Buttercream Lipglosses feel heavenly on my lips, but I could have done without the Red Vines aroma (I’m not a licorice fan) or the faintly plastic flavor, which brings back major memories of the old-school NARS glosses, but both the fragrance and flavor fade quickly, so I can deal.

NARS, You’re a Peach for Introducing 6 New Shades of Radiant Creamy Concealer

Published in: Collections, Makeup, NARS, Product Reviews

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer — now in six new shades!

I like eating peaches…and I like wearing peach-toned under-eye concealer.

What does this have to do with NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer?

Well, the whole “eating peaches” bit has absolutely nothing to do with it. I’m just super obsessed with peaches right now, and I got a huge box from Trader Joe’s last week, so I’ve been in peach heaven.

But the thing about peach-toned concealer is marginally related, because NARS just added six new Radiant Creamy Concealer shades to the line, and a couple of them have peachy undertones, woo-hoo!

Let's do this

Let’s do this

Back when NARS first released their creamy, full-coverage Radiant Creamy Concealers, it shook up the makeup world. A lot of peeps fell in love (myself included), because of how good they were/are at doing so many things.

And they completely cover everything.

EVERY. FRICKIN’. THING.

Yet somehow still look natural.

Creamy, Coco-Nutty Full-Coverage Too Faced Born This Way Concealer

Published in: Face, Makeup, Product Reviews, Too Faced

Too Faced Born This Way Concealer ($28)

Apparently, my mind is in the gutter, because for the longest time I mistakenly thought that this Too Faced concealer was actually named Better Than Sex Concealer, and not Born This Way Concealer, HAHA!

And, of course, because of that, I thought, “How can a concealer be better than sex? I don’t even know… Then again, a good concealer can be pretty darned orgasmic…” LOL! Yeah. Dirty birdy.

Born This Way, which came out early this summer, is $28 and available in 10 shades.

Like some other Too Faced products, it contains skin-friendly ingredients, like coconut water (it has a very faint coconut scent too) and hyaluronic acid, which, Too Faced says, makes it more moisturizing and helps promote a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Truth be told…I can never tell for sure if skincare ingredients make much of a difference when they show up in my makeup, but homegirl does need all the help she can get.

Born This Way is a full-coverage concealer and feels like a fluffy mousse. Right off the bat, the consistency, the smoothing formula and the coverage remind me of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer, which was my errrything for many years, and I still love it.
