Happy birthday America!

I celebrated with flags on my nails… and patriotism on my eyes! Urban Decay: Radium liquid liner on lashline, Kiddie Pool eyeshadow on inside corner, Uzi eyeshadow in the middle of lid and up to brows, and Deluxe eyeshadow Heat in the outside corners.

More for your money!

I read on a blog that if you cut open Urban Decay’s Primer Potion bottle, you will find tons more product than what you get out with the wand while the bottle is still intact. As my most recent bottle came to an end, I asked my boyfriend to get me some kind of cutting …

Looks like they’re going to introduce cream eyeliners (Pyrotechnics is the one I’m eyeing!), as well as three new lipstick shades (Naked is the one …

Something for after sun

My favorite place to be is on the beach. Or as we say in Jersey, down the shore. I love the feel of the hot sand under my feet (and the giddy way I feel running towards the water to lessen the burn on my soles), the sound of the waves crashing, scrambling to move …

Great tips from Allure!

Was perusing the web for news and saw this article from Allure about using makeup to accentuate the positives as your skin ages… it’s kinda a how-to on how not to call out your crow’s feet and thin lips! http://tiny.cc/yI3Gj I especially like the feathering lipstick tip!

MAC Pro longwear lip color

I have tried tons of long-wearing lip colors and pretty much all of them but L’Oreal’s has disappointed me. But I never expected that MAC’s would disappoint me, too. I used it yesterday and by lunch, when I was wiping my lips as I ate, the lipstick started coming off in those tell-tale tiny balls. …
