My sweet tooth is absolutely thrilled with all the action it’s seen lately!
If I don’t get a handle on this soon, I’m either going to end up in the emergency room with a doctor asking me, “So why were you eating makeup?” or replace my entire wardrobe with stretchy pants.
Blast you, Too Faced!
Scrumptiously sweet, this indulgent holiday kit of 12 powder eyeshadows, one full-size Lashgasm Mascara and one sample-sized tube of Candlelight Shadow Insurance is not just low-cal (no cal?). It’s also convenient as heck. It gives you the option of going subtle with neutrals like brown, beige and peach, or going buck wild with purple, pink and black smokey sass.
More often now that it’s fall, I’ve been getting the urge to
eat my feelings wear purple smokey looks, and a lot of the time when it happens, I reach for Bon Bons.
Here, let me give you the recipe.
Just pat Candlelight primer all over your lids, sprinkle one (or two or three) of Bon Bon’s yummy chocolate or caramel browns on your lids and in the crease, add a dash of purple directly on top of your neutrals and a dollop of mascara on your upper and lower lashes.
Chill before serving…
Okay, not really. It’s ready to go right there! — and the look lasts all day long with barely any fading or creasing.
Cook’s tip: remember to tap your eye brush against the edge of the sink (or run it along a tissue/paper towel) before applying these shadows; otherwise, you might wind up with some fallout on your cheeks and beneath your eyes.
Yep, I love the sweet color treats in this kit, and what a great mix of colors. Even with a little bit of fallout and the cute, but oh-so-hard-to-keep-clean velvet case, I think it’s still a win.
PRICE: $42 (a $147 value!)

Lips like sugar…
While you beautiful ’80s babies out there were probably gnawing on your binky when Lips Like Sugar by Echo and the Bunnymen was getting airtime on the radio, I was making mix tapes (actual tapes, like on a tape deck) for my crush, Jake Ryan.
If this is your first time hearing this song, welcome to the soundtrack of my most awkward years!
Uh, oh… I feel an ’80s dance montage coming on! Now I gotta cut loose…
