Thursday, March 29th, 2007

Calm down, the short answer to this is no. Now, let The Beauty Bug explain. The Beauty was shopping at Sephora this past weekend, when She struck up a conversation with the store director whose lashes were wing-like. They were fuller and longer than any lashes that I’ve seen before, and extremely dense. After asking [...]

Wednesday, March 28th, 2007

The Beauty Bug went shopping with The Plastic Surgeon’s Daughter on Saturday. The PSD picked up Givenchy’s Eye Fly Lash Extender Mascara. Here’s her review… There’s a lot to be said for a pretty face; the world opens up to you more easily. Men open doors and people listen in rapture when you speak. Well, [...]

A Sharpie for Your Eyes

Tuesday, March 27th, 2007

After reading about it, The Beauty Bug purchased The Physician’s Formula Eye Definer Felt Tip Eye Marker. A novel idea with huge potential, this was a no risk purchase – it was only 6.99 at CVS. She really had no expectations before trying it; She’s always had trouble applying eyeliner on the top of Her [...]

Do You Relastin?

Monday, March 19th, 2007

The Beauty Bug does – but She hasn’t seen results. It’s that simple. Relastin Eye Silk, a hot product amongst beauty bloggers, has been making headlines for 2 reasons; for its’ supposed dramatic results, and for the company’s indirect, deceptive “free trial offer”. This falls under the category if it’s too good to be true, [...]

The Barbie Vanity

Saturday, March 17th, 2007

There has been much ado over the MAC Barbie Collection. Lots of products are sold out, and the first day the collection launched MAC sold out of the actual Barbie. The Beauty Bug loves how MAC brought the theme to life – the branding, the packaging, the point of purchase materials and the window displays [...]

If you haven’t figured it out yet, everything in The Beauty Bug’s world (including her opinions) tends to be black and white – rarely is there a gray area. So here’s what She’s feeling strongly about today: Groomed Male Eyebrows – There is a happy a medium between having a big furry uni-brow and perfectly [...]

The Estée Lauder Mascara Promotion That Wasn’t…

Saturday, March 10th, 2007

The Beauty Bug recently received an email from Allure and Estée Lauder, as well as a postcard in the mail both offering her a free sample of Estée Lauder’s new Projectionist High Definition Volume Mascara. She has tried Estée’s mascaras in the past, and wasn’t really a fan, but thought this one could have potential. [...]

Benefit Nipple Tint?

Friday, March 9th, 2007

The Beauty Bug just returned from a very unexciting lunch (today she brown bagged it and attempted to do her evil sudoku, only to be interrupted by a chatty intern) to this IM from her friend VAMP: VAMP: Did you hear about Benefit’s Benetint- being sold a Sephora and elsewhere as a nipple tint??? That’s [...]
