Howzit, ladies? Good (belated) morning to ya. 🙂 I slept in again with a little help from Tabs. He makes it easy to lose track of time. Simply put, sleeping late with a cat beside me on the bed is one of the greatest pleasures in life.
What did you do last night? My plans changed at the last minute because El Hub ended up not going on his bromance, so we went out to dinner and a movie instead. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo? Have you seen it? Swiss or Swedish, I think… I can’t remember which, but I thought it was great.
A pair of investigators, one a girl computer hacker and the other a reporter dude for an underground newspaper, get mixed up in a wealthy family’s twisted conspiracy surrounding the disappearance of a young girl in 1966.
LOTS of awful, sadistic men in the story, but the hacker girl character flat-out rules!
Back to beauty then — what was your favorite product this past week? Was it an old standby or something new?
Physicans Formula Healthy Wear Bronzer: A Trifecta of Skin Lurving Benefits?
“Now here I go being all wrong about bronzers… I always thought they were for adding a warm, almost-tanned look to skin. Not true, says Physicians Formula, or rather, that’s not all they can do. New Healthy Wear Bronzer gives a sun-kissed glow but couples it with healthful skin benefits.”
MAC Unsung Heroes: Lychee Luxe Lipglass
“Lychee Luxe is the coral lipgloss Goldilocks would have worn because it bears (ha!) a perfect amount of golden pinkish coral… And, oooh! — the flexibility. It goes great with so many different eye makeup looks, like all of the seasonal golds, bronzes, coppers, teals and greens of summer.”

MBBTV #11: Philosophy Coloring Book Gets a Bad … Rap
Have you played with any of the makeup palettes Philosophy has been coming out with these lately? This one — called The Color of Grace — gets a bad rap. Well, that’s a little misleading, 🙂 but you be the judge.
CORRECTION: You CAN Touch Chanel Noir Et Or
“Of the four pieces in the collection, I’m digging the polishes the most ($25 each). Black Velvet, Gold Lame and Illusion d’or all have that classic Chanel polish texture you know and love — thick (but not too thick) and smooth, with a gorgeous, glossy finish that just says, ‘Chanel.'”
It’s No Secret: MAC Hush Cream Colour Base Is the Bomb Diggity
“MAC’s Cream Colour Base in Hush ($16.50) isn’t a new product (it’s part of the permanent line)… Like the rest of the Cream Colour Bases, shimmery Hush feels like a creamy blush to the touch. I’ve been using it all sorts of different ways, but my favorite way? — using it as a highlighter.”
Is Physicians Formula Healthy Wear Tinted Moisturizer Drugstore Duping Laura Mercier?
“It also reminds me of Laura Mercier’s Oil Free tinted moisturizer — my fave tinted moisturizer of all time — because it rocks a similar buildable medium-to-full coverage that doesn’t look heavy or feel greasy on my face…”
