Makeup and Beauty Blog’s Hell-to-the-Yah! list: Tuesday, October 9, 2007
Hell-to-the-Yah! #1: Midget Mac on I Love NY 2
I don’t care if your television taste is more PBS than trash TV, you won’t be able to resist the couch paralysis that happens when the weirdness that is I LOVE NY 2 unfolds on Vh1.
So far, out of all the weird dudes in the bunch, right now I’m on TEAM MIDGET MAC!
(…although somebody needs to tell him to get rid of those horizontal-striped oversized shirts because they do nothing to lengthen his torso.)
And does any body else think it’s odd that when Midget Mac does his solo interviews you can only see from his nose upward? C’mon, camera man/woman! I know it ain’t that hard to lower the lens!
Hell-to-the-Yah! #2: Chanel for Dummies! Multi-Use Makeup Palette and the Winter Nights Quad
BEHOLD! Bow down to the awesomeness that is the Chanel palette.
With a combo of best-selling and exclusive colors, this palette is sure to feed my inner lazy makeup beast but will still leave me looking polished. Four eyeshadows, four lip colors and one blush equals one happy (and broke, it’s $85, OUCH!) Karen.
BUT WAIT…there’s more! The lovely reader Glosslizard sent me this pic of the Winter Nights Quad. You know better than to feed the fire, girl!
Hell-to-the-Yeah! #3: Boot Shopping on Zappos.com
It’s allegedly going to rain today in the Bay Area, which is my lame excuse for spending time in Candy Land, aka, the boot section on Zappos.com.
Where the hell am I going to wear these Gabriella Rocha boots? But I want â€˜em, sigh!

Hell-to-the-Yeah! #5: Kanye West’s new CD, Graduation Day
Either you love him or hate him, you can’t deny that the man can make some beats. My new theme song is on Kanye’s latest CD Graduation, and it’s called Stronger. They hook reads like the story of my life as of late:
“Work it harder make it better,
do it faster makes us stronger,
more than ever, hour after
hour work is never over”
Work it harder today on this lovely Tuesday, ya’ll. I know you can do it!
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. What’s on your Hell-to-the-Yah list?!?!
