New Beauty Items of Interest!


I really only listed this one because I love the name…Perversion Mascara by Urban Decay.  Okay, so the description sounds interesting too!  Who doesn’t want the “biggest, blackest, baddest lashes ever?”  Sign me up!

Because I’m a part of the short, stubby, eyelash crew, I’m constantly on the lookout for a mascara that’s going to do me some justice! As we’ve discussed, I’m really a fake lash girl, but sometimes I just don’t have time to put them on!  To date, I’m still making love to Benefit They’re Real mascara (see my previous post regarding the dirty deetz) but it may be time to spice things up with some perversion!

Get bigger, blacker, badder lashes with our ultra-creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara. So intense you might need a safe word, Perversion glides on and gets you sexy in one stroke. (Yet it won’t quit until you say when.) It’s insane how black it is…the purest, deepest, most intense black color imaginable.

Perversion has a creamy, full-bodied texture that’s not too dry, not too wet. This allows just the right amount of “pull” so it glides through lashes. The result: incredible control for insane lashes. Go ahead and pile on coat after coat. Want to apply more before you go out at night? No problem. Even if it’s been all day since you applied, more Perversion always means more beautiful lashes. Our formula NEVER gets brittle or clumpy. 




What are nail salons doing these days now that everyone can just buy their own cheaper gel nail polish without the hassle? Sally Hansen has a line out, learn about it here.  Wet n Wild also has some great shades in their new line called 1-Step Wondergel Nail Color (18 shades), have you tried one?  Do these really last an entire 2 weeks?

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Wonder Gel! The first gel formula that doesn’t require a top coat and cures without a lamp, this nail color breakthrough is about to become your nail superhero. Provides up to 2 weeks of color and shine in 1 easy step.



This was sent to me recently in exchange for my honest review, are you hip?  Magnif’eyes Double Ended Shadow Liner is very much ‘the business’ in my book!  Admittedly, I have not yet used the eyeshadow portion as of yet (but I will report back once I do)!

I was in a super quick hurry and wanted to jazz up my eyes with a thick, bright winged-eye  paired with a lippie from the Kate Nude Collection that I showed you previously (view colors here).  This blue was absolutely perfect, the color was soooooo bright and pretty, very noticeable in the royal/cobalt family.  Check out this swatch!

Last but not least……

thigh chain

This makes my life right here!  My thighs are of ji-goon-dus capacity and I still want one, and plan to cop it…the infamous thigh-chain!  Yassssssss!

Sold yet?  These appear to be available just about everywhere, but the easiest for me will be my beloved Amazon!  For all you Etsy girls, there’s a wide array of styles on there too.  Super cute with a swimsuit, shorts or a skirt!  Ooooh Weeeee!


So what have you tried from this list?  Or, what are you planning to try?  Is a thigh-chain for you this spring?

Insert amusement here: Has anyone heard of Period Panteez?

Urban Decay has a new Essentials Eye Kit that looks pretty snazzy!

Nail a range of looks with Urban Essentials Eye Kit—loaded with three shades of our iconic Eyeshadow and three creamy, waterproof 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (all full size). There’s even a deluxe sample of Eyeshadow Primer Potion!

With a set this versatile (in a mix of neutrals and purples), the possibilities are endless. For longer wear, start with Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Where you go from there is up to you. These cult-favorite shades work on any skin tone, so you can’t go wrong. Create neutral daytime looks, smoky nighttime looks and everything in between.

This kit is filled with iconic products that really deliver. Eyeshadow Primer Potion incorporates space-age polymer technology that fills in any imperfections on the skin’s surface, prepping your lids for all-day shadow. Each shade of Eyeshadow features our Pigment Infusion System™, a proprietary blend of ingredients that gives the formula its velvety texture, rich color, serious staying power and blendability. And the waterproof 24/7 Eye Pencils deliver long-lasting color with a dreamy, creamy feel.

Rather than placing all these products in a boring box, we created a mini version of one of our coveted vault sets. The result? A collector’s set that’s worthy of display on your vanity. The outer sleeve features rich, prismatic artwork in purples, pinks and neutrals. Inside, an elegant black box with an inner tray and a magnetic closure keeps all the products in place.
