I wonder if Marc Jacobs has ever opened a coconut… He likes coconuts, obviously, because there’s a bunch of new products in his makeup line that are coconut inspired and have coconut water in them, but has homeboy actually ever opened a coconut? I hope he has! And I hope you have at least once, because it’s weirdly empowering. Girl, we’ll get to Marc’s new coconut bronzer and highlighter in a second, but let me just tell you that I opened a coconut this morning for the very first time — used a hammer to lay the beat down on that husk! — and when that bad boy finally cracked open, I was like, “YES! I opened a coconut, motherf*ckers! I CAN DO ANYTHING.”

It felt really good. LOL! Anyway, just your daily fruit diversion. 🙂

Marc’s got some new coco-nutty products, and they’re all about tans, glowing and summer skin.

O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan

The new bronzer is kind of ridic because of the price — $49!! I know. Think of it this way, though: at least it’s cheaper than Tom Ford’s.

It’s called the O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan because it smells like coconuts (it’s not overwhelming or faux-sweet), but looking at the ingredient list, it doesn’t appear to have coconut in it.

What I Wore Wednesday, Vol. 12: Sparkly Purple Liner, and Fun With Matte and Dewy Finishes http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/mac-makeup/wore-wednesday-vol-12-sparkly-purple-liner-fun-matte-dewy-finishes/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/mac-makeup/wore-wednesday-vol-12-sparkly-purple-liner-fun-matte-dewy-finishes/#comments Wed, 10 May 2017 21:00:06 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=212795 What I Wore Wednesday, Vol. 12: Sparkly Purple Liner, and Fun With Matte and Dewy Finishes

I know I’ve asked this before (oh, 10 or 12 times), but do you like to wear colorful eye makeup? Like, lately? I’ve been pretty adventurous with color lately. More than I’ve been in years. At least two or three. I dunno… I went through a loooong period when all I wanted to wear on my eyes was brown shadow, and that was fun in its own way…but I’ve been liking playing with color again. It’s time.

(I’m wondering, does everyone go through a brown shadow phase at least once in their life?? Hmm…).

Anyway, for the last couple of “What I Wore Wednesdays,” I went full-on colorful, but today… Girl, I just wasn’t in the mood to blend very much (it happens), so I kinda cheated a little with a sparkly purple liner on my lash lines and taupe/bronze/brown lids.

Purple liner, especially bright and sparkly ones like the one I’m wearing (it’s MAC Designer Purple, an amazingly bright and sparkly purple liner that lasts FOREVER on lash lines), gives you a lot of bang for your back in terms of effort. You’ll look like you tried really hard, but ya know, it’s just a purple eyeliner.

Mostly Makeup-Related Friday Ramblings: The Urban Decay Basquiat Collection, New Makeup Setting Sprays, and Mom Brain (It’s a Legit Thing!) http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/urban-decay-3/urban-decay-basquiat-collection-review/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/urban-decay-3/urban-decay-basquiat-collection-review/#comments Sat, 29 Apr 2017 00:16:46 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=212396 Mostly Makeup-Related Friday Ramblings: The Urban Decay Basquiat Collection, New Makeup Setting Sprays, and Mom Brain (It’s a Legit Thing!)

Hey, guys! Happy Friday. 🙂 I hope you’re having a good one so far. I hope it hasn’t been too hectic or stressful. Sometimes on Fridays I feel a mix of relief, because it’s the end of the week, and a little bit of…I dunno, anxiety? Just because I like to leave things in a good place for Monday. You know what I mean? I like to fix up my office a little and have a plan for what I’m going to do the next week, maybe take pictures if I need to or go to the arts and crafts store for props.

I also like to do a little housecleaning if I can get to it, just so that I don’t have to think about it over the weekend, and I can actually, maybe relax.

So even though I’m super excited that it’s Friday, it’s tinged with slight stress, LOL.

Anyway…

Today I started testing some new products from Urban Decay. They have a new collection out called UD Jean-Michel Basquiat.

Yup, inspired by the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat. That’s his artwork on the packaging.

I saw the neutral Gold Griot Eyeshadow palette and thought, “Girl, I need to get that on my lids ASAP,” so I’m wearing it.

My Lips Are Smitten With New Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/marc-jacobs-beauty-enamored-hi-shine-lip-lacquer/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/marc-jacobs-beauty-enamored-hi-shine-lip-lacquer/#comments Thu, 25 Jun 2015 00:28:48 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=183269 My Lips Are Smitten With New Marc Jacobs Beauty Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Lacquer

If the Marc Jacobs Beauty Hi-Shine Enamored Lip Lacquers were a dude, I wouldn’t say that I’m “ready to put a ring on it,” because we’ve only been together about a week, but I would say that I am enamored enough with them to make out on the doorstep — with tongue action.

I might even let them grab a boob or a butt cheek, as long as the neighbors don’t see. 🙂

In other words, this new line of lip glosses is pretty charming. It’s…

  • Shiny
  • Comfortable
  • Non-sticky
  • Minty
  • Moisturizing
  • And all-around fab!

A new line of glosses in the Marc Jacobs Beauty permanent collection, the Enamored Lip Lacquers have a sensationally shiny finish that’s supposed to make lips look like they’re wearing “30 coats of lacquer.”

First of all, duuuude! — that would be a lot of lacquer. How do they even quantify that…?

Second of all, whatever! I like the finish. 🙂 It’s so bright that your cat will even be able to see his/her reflection in it.

As for how these feel on my lips, one word: ooh!

Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara Is More Dramatic Than a Soap Opera Cliffhanger Before a Commercial Break http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/marc-jacobs-beauty-omegal-lash-volumizing-mascara/ http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/product-reviews/marc-jacobs-beauty-omegal-lash-volumizing-mascara/#comments Mon, 13 Oct 2014 23:37:10 +0000 http://www.makeupandbeautyblog.com/?p=170112 Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara Is More Dramatic Than a Soap Opera Cliffhanger Before a Commercial Break

Do I want a mousy mascara, a timid one that keeps its eyes glued to the floor, too nervous to embrace the music and attack the dance floor with verve!

No.

How about a mascara that shushes me when I laugh a little too loudly in public, then says, “Be quiet! You’re making a scene and attracting to much attention”?

Not a chance.

Or a mascara that never wants to go out? It just wants to stay at home and watch Law and Order and fall asleep by 8:30?

ABSOLUTELY EFFING NOT.

I want a mascara that hits the gas and takes my hand while looking straight into my eyes and yelling, “We’re about to Thelma and Louise this ish, boo!” as our convertible dives off the cliff! 🙂

If you’re into bold, brash, loud lashes, new Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Volumizing Mascara ($26) delivers the big O. Built to lengthen and bring the noise/oomph for a full, flirty fringe, it’s packed with essential oils and vitamins B5 and C to condition and strengthen those little lash hairs while curling, lifting and defining with its fancy “double brush,” which is what Team Marc Jacobs calls it, a brush that combines two kinds of mascara brushes — a brush to separate and another for volume and curl — into one.
