Purple Dame

Monday, July 28th, 2008

The Beauty Bug left for Saint Maarten with China Glaze’s Flying Dragon on Her toes – toes that The Beauty Bug Fiancee said “Prince would like”. Yes, The Beauty Bug is a big Prince fan, but no, She wasn’t trying to channel him. She wanted to love the color, but instead She really just loved [...]

The Beauty Bug is Back

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

…back from vacation, and is ready for Her beauty rehabilitation to begin. Vacations make us all lazy and cause us to change our normal routines – beauty regimens included.

The Beauty Bug already told you about Her yellow toenails. She knew they were different, but it’s just nail polish, right? It’s not like a bad hair cut that has to grow out – it’s just nail polish. But, She didn’t think that She’d be getting so many obvious stares on the train, on elevators, [...]

The Beauty Bug’s day job and Her site/obsession for beauty products rarely ever intersect – most of the time, it’s just better that way.

La Mer’s SPF 18 Fluid Tint

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

The cardinal rule when it comes to summer makeup – put the powder away until at least September. Don’t even be tempted to apply a light dusting because you’ll just sweat it off. Not even for touch-ups! But… trust The Beauty Bug when She tells you that once you try The SPF 18 Fluid Tint [...]
