I’m sick and feeling like complete crap, but, alas, beauty stops for no one! — so I chug onward. *Achoo!* Sniffling, sneezing and coughing won’t stop your girl from aching for…
Did you know L’Oreal has two free-standing retail stores, one in Connecticut and the other in Southern California? Too bad the closer one to me is approximately 400 miles south at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles because I’d love to peep Red Carpet, a fancy shmansy mirrored compact designed by Kwiat for the Golden Globes.
It doesn’t come with any product inside and costs $50 (oy!), but 20 percent of the purchase price goes to support the Ovarian Cancer Fund, which I think is awesome. I dig the curvy star pattern of Swarovski crystals. Pretty, yah?
There seemed to be a lot of reader distress last week about MAC Glitters not being safe for eye use. In the spirit of glitter and makeup research, I went to Nordstrom and asked a few makeup artists for some recommendations.
They tipped me in on Prescriptives Eye Shadow Effects ($25), a fine glitter powder safe for use around eyes. One of the makeup artists applied some Cool Effects shadow on top of my Chanel Aurora Blues, and the tiny silvery flecks made my eyes really pop!
Both the Cool Effects (silver) and the Warm Effects (gold) shadows can be used to transform a matte look into a shimmery one. Too bad the counter was out of stock of both products at the time. Le sigh.
Japanese language comprehension
Would someone please translate this screenshot for me? I’m looking for a button that says, “spend all your money here.”
I found out about this super cute limited edition collection by Paul & Joe for Disney via Muse Media. Check out her blog sometime. It has lots of awesome Japanese makeup.
The collection contains two powders, a hand cream and a lip cream in cute Disney themed packaging. Too bad it’s only available in Japan because it’s too cute, and my irrational self says that I need it all!
Sidenote: Speaking of Disney, I just read a story today about how one of their Disney World Florida restaurants actually banned children, LOLOLZ!
Sorry for the short post, ya’ll, but I gotta get back to the couch to eat more chicken soup and then pass the eff out. Will (hopefully) be back tomorrow in full force.
Have a great makeup-filled night.
