bareMinerals Kissing Booth Collection Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Jezebel

Thanks, bareMinerals, for inspiring my latest list with your new $26 Kissing Booth Lipgloss Collection.

I’m calling it “Carnival Attractions That I Absolutely Never Want to Operate.”

At the top of the list, the kissing booth, which, yeah, probably isn’t a good fit for the girl who freaked-the-eff-out when she found out that her (now ex) boyfriend was using her toothbrush (EWWWWWWW!).

Can you imagine the germs exchanged during one afternoon at a kissing booth? Um…no thank you.

Carnival Attractions That I Absolutely Never Want to Operate

  • The kissing booth — Yuck! I don’t know where those lips have been!
  • The Ferris wheel — People freaking out in buckets a hundred feet off the ground? I can’t… I just can’t.
  • The milk bottle baseball game — Oh, hell to the no. How much do you want to bet someone would hit me with a ball?
  • The carousel/merry-go-round — Make it stop! The music is driving me nuts…

Now, if I could insist that there were only two customers at my kissing booth, El Hub and Tabs (who would get nose kisses, of course), then cool. :) And I’d also want these Kissing Booth Collection glosses around, because their sheer pigments wouldn’t leave bright smooch marks behind.

What Are Your 5 Favorite Eye Products Right Now?

Published in: Just For Fun

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! Let’s talk top eye products on this terrific Tuesday…

Here are my five favorite eye products right now. Mind you, the list changes all the time…so this is just a current snapshot.

  1. BECCA Ombre Nudes Eyeshadow Palette ($40) — Really great for easy, blown-out matte neutral eye looks.
  2. Rouge Bunny Rouge Satin Eyeliner in Blue Roan ($28) — Kind of obsessed with this blue liquid liner…
  3. Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Espresso ($44) — It’s crazy stupid expensive, but I swear, Tom makes the best brow pencil out there now (also available in Blonde, Taupe and Chestnut). Life changing.
  4. MAC Eye Shadow in Woodwinked ($16) — This warm golden oldie is a goodie.
  5. Cle de Peau Perfect Lash Mascara ($50) — So waterproof that it laughed at the perspiration that poured off my face in the 13.1-mile half-marathon, as if to say, “Is that all you got?!” Too expensive, but it’s so, so good…

How about you, sweets? What are your five favorite eye products right now?

For Acts of Impromptu Eye, Lip and Cheek Nudity: The $54 Urban Decay Naked On the Run Palette

Published in: Palettes, Product Reviews, Urban Decay

Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette

The new Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette, $54

I’ve seen naked runners before…although I kind of wish I hadn’t, because one of the guys had the word “slut” tattooed on his butt in American Typewriter, and now I’ll never be able to see American Typewriter the same way, but that’s what happens when you run the Bay to Breakers…

This is only marginally related to the new Naked On the Run palette by Urban Decay. :)

UD pretty much covers everything here with the exception of your base makeup and brows. There’s something for eyes, lips, cheeks and lashes, and most of the colors are brand new.

This look here actually didn’t take long at all, and I used five of the six shadows. I’d already put on foundation and filled in my brows, but I sprinted through the eyes, cheeks, lips and lashes.

Wearing Eyeshadows in 5050, Fix, Resist, Dare and Stun; Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stag and Perversion Mascara on my eyes; the Blush and Bronzer on my cheeks; and Naked Lipgloss in Sesson on my lips

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 347

Published in: Just For Fun

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for November 17, 2014

The Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll for November 17, 2014

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”

Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.

  1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
    Naw. If it’s really important, I’m pretty good about keeping my mouth shut.
  2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis (the ability to move things with your mind)?
    Oh fly, definitely. That way if my car didn’t have gas, I could still get around and wouldn’t have to rely on public transportation.

    Of course, I’d have to bring a bag of accoutrements with me to fix my hair and makeup once I arrived at my destination, because knowing my luck, I’d always end up with insects up in my grill…

  3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
    Yeah, but you know, that was ages ago. I think it’s kind of inevitable, especially with people you spend a lot of time with, but that old saying is there for a reason: “Don’t sh*t where you eat.”

    At least I think that’s the saying… Whatever it is, it’s true.

  4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
    Exactly 7.25. No more, no less. :)
  5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.
    Photography composition. I struggle with a lot of the technical aspects of photography, but that’s one part that’s not so hard for me.

Le List

Your turn. :) Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ‘em!


1. Have you ever accidentally spilled the beans on a secret you were supposed to keep?
2. Would you rather be able to fly, or have telekinesis?
3. Have you ever had a crush on someone at work?
4. On a scale of 1-10, with one being a complete klutz and 10 being a world-class ballerina, how graceful are you?
5. I’ve always thought I have a good eye for __________.

T-minus four days till Mockingjay: Part 1. Have a great Monday, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 322

Published in: Just For Fun, Sponsored Post, Tabs

Taking time to give thanks

Dear fans, friends and felines,

It’s with a happy heart and a full tum that I say, “success!” I just finished hosting my very first Thanksgiving, and it went extremely well.

Due to scheduling conflicts later this month, my guests and I celebrated today. A couple of the major shareholders of Tabs the Cat Industries LLC attended, as well as my assistant Karen. Overall, it was an intimate gathering. Lots of food, friends and fabulousness.
