Cray for coral!

Some people go cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs. I go crazy for coral…lips, which I will totally wear any time of year, but fiendishly in summer.

This time of year I wear coral lips. A lot. Practically every other day! I mean, coral as a color in summer? That never goes out of style.

And when it comes to coral lips and permanent colors, here are seven of my faves… :)

1. MAC Amplified Lipstick in Vegas Volt

Vegas Volt. Something must be powering all those slot machines and lights. Maybe it’s Vegas Volt. It’s the coral I wear when I feel like kicking doors down in my four-inch heels.

Intense, opaque and potent enough to send a lightning bolt of pigment straight to your soul. It’s $16 and available now at MAC counters, stores and online.

Flamingoes. Creamy coral pink Streak reminds me of flamingoes. :) This fresh, summery coral kicks so much @ss when worn with dewy skin, teal or gold liner, and mountains of mascara. It’s $22 and available now online and at Urban Decay counters, Ulta, Sephora and select Macy’s stores.

5 Drugstore Makeup Products That Are Off The Freakin’ Chain

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds

Maybelline makes one of my current low-cost crushes/favorite drugstore products — Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs Lipstick in Stormy Sahara, which I’m wearing here

Who says you have to sacrifice your sensibilities and set your wallet on fire to find truly fabulous beauty products? Whoever they are, ignore them. Please. Because they have no idea what they’re talking about. :)

There are many marvelous drugstore makeup products out there, and here are five of my current favorites. I use ’em and love ’em a lot.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Buffs ($7.49)

Is it possible to own too many nude lipsticks? — like, where someone would come over to your house, see your makeup collection and say, “No, no, no! You cannot have that many nude lipsticks! I’m sorry, but it’s against the rules, and I’m telling on you…”

A girl can never have too many nude lipsticks. Am I right?! Maybelline’s Color Sensational The Buffs lipsticks have a smooth, satiny finish and lots of pigment, and they apply fully opaque. Basically, they’re the ish.

They’re available in 10 shades and various nude tones, but my top love is warm peachy beige Stormy Sahara. I ESPECIALLY love it with smokey eyes. It’s available now online and at drugstores and Ulta.

Oh! — and FYI, Ulta is currently offering a buy one, get one for 50% off deal on these.

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous Foundation ($12.99)

Loreal True Match Lumi

YASSSS, gurl! Magic in a bottle, otherwise known as L’Oreal True Match Lumi Healthy Luminous foundation ($12.99)

I’ve raved about this foundation before, and you know what? I’m going to rave about it again. Because it’s the very definition of a drugstore gem.

If you like that dewy skin look, try L’Oreal True Match Lumi. I think it’s the best drugstore foundation on the market, hands-down. It’s great. I swear on my tabby’s fluffy thighs… Yes, it’s that serious, boo-boo!

It’s $12.99 and comes in a bunch of shades, and the formula applies effortlessly and looks natural, so you won’t end up with fake-@ss cyborg skin. Just real skin that looks more even toned and luminous.

I love this stuff so much that I’m getting another bottle in a darker shade to mix with my current bottle of Sun Beige and customize my own color. It’s available now online and at drugstores, Target and Ulta (note: it’s currently on sale at Ulta right meow for $7.79).

The Petite Products From Stowaway Cosmetics: Sometimes It’s Good to Have a Stowaway

Published in: Makeup, Stowaway

A few pieces from the Stowaway Cosmetics line

BREAKING NEWS — A Novato woman discovered a Stowaway in her makeup bag today, and to her surprise, it wasn’t only an XXL tabby…

Tabs-in-suitcase

Yes, Tabs wasn’t the only stowaway trying to hitch a ride with me today. He had to share space with Stowaway Cosmetics, a new makeup line that launched last spring with a selection of pint-sized products.

Apparently, Tabs didn’t think I’d notice a 20-pound tabby cat next to all the shoes…

Poor guy. I love him and all, but he’s not exactly minuscule.

These petite pieces in the new Stowaway Cosmetics line, however, are.

Cream blushes, a lipstick and a liner in human paw for scale…

Small and streamlined

All of the products fit into the palm of my paw/hand. According to the brand, the idea is that, for once in your makeup-lurvin’ life, you may actually be able to finish that tube of lipstick/BB cream/concealer before it expires.

The smaller sizes also make the pieces easier to bring along, whether to the gym, or when you’re traveling, or when you’re headed out to yo’ booty call’s house and you don’t want to bring a suitcase stuffed with makeup.

Unsung Makeup Heroes: Rimmel London Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Face, Makeup, Rimmel, Unsung Heroes

I can’t vouch for the full-on waterproofness of Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Bronze ($4.99), because I’m still waiting to find myself caught in a downpour with the original cast of Magic Mike, which to my mind is the ideal (and perfectly plausible) testing scenario.

But until said situation plays out — and it’s only a matter of time before it happens, obviously — I’ll just continue adoring this matte bronzer for other reasons, and there are SO, SO MANY OF THEM, starting with the wonderful price.

NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi ($26), a total unsung makeup hero

Dang, it’s hot here today…

Like, fry-an-egg-on-the-sidewalk hot here today (incidentally, have you ever tried that?).

Or, sweat-until-you-have-a-major-life-revelation hot here today.

Basically, it’s sticky-back-of-the-knees, crook-of-the-elbows, middle-of-the-booty-cheeks hot here today (oh, and my air conditioner isn’t working).

The only things keeping me from melting into a puddle of sweat are 1) the fact that it’s a dry heat (it DOES make a difference), and 2) this tube of NARS Satin Lip Pencil in Lodhi ($26), because it’s cool. :)
