Butter Me Up: NYX Butter Glosses

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

It’s so hard to resist the pun here because, well, NYX’s new Butter Glosses are just like butter. And if The Beauty Bug, a born and raised Bostonian, had a Boston accent, She would say that they are like buttah. But She doesn’t. Thankfully.

Unexpectedly Haute

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

The Beauty Bug is by no means frilly, or girly. As a rule she doesn’t wear florals, lace, pouffy-sleeved clothing, or pink (clothing or gloss). But there was just something about MAC’s Crazy Haute Marbleized Lip Gloss that tempted Her and made Her… re-think pink. Maybe it was the georgous marble swirls, or the blue [...]

Stila’s Cherry-licious

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

This morning was a typical morning in The Beauty Bug household, that is until The Beauty Bug went to kiss The Beauty Bug Fiance goodbye before She left for work. She hadn’t followed her typical routine; usually She purposely kisses Him goodbye before She puts on the lip product of Her choosing, but today was [...]

NARS Orgasm Lipgloss: Not So Exciting

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

With the winds nearly at gale force these past couple days in Boston, wearing lip gloss has been a challenge. These past 2 days by the time She got to work, The Beauty Bug had Orgasm coated hair. Gross. Double Ick. Think Something About Mary… But on to the more important part – The Beauty [...]

Dazzleglass: It’s Worth Leaving Work Early For

Wednesday, May 7th, 2008

She had been thinking about it since yesterday afternoon when Michelle from All Lacquered Up planted the Dazzleglass seed. [...]
