Plush Lashes…They’re Worth Being Late to Work For…

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

The Beauty Bug is normally a very punctual person…normally. She hates being late and will do anything She can to avoid it – especially when it comes to work. There’s nothing worse than having to walk past everyone to get to your desk – everyone who is already busy at work. Well, this morning, when [...]

Other trends included: Dabbed silver, white pink or gold powder patches high pony tails catch the light “Plastic skin” (not dewy, not matte) achieved by using a tiny amount of natural lip gel and cheek highlight Blacked out/electric blue eyes [...]

Smokin’ Hot

Thursday, August 16th, 2007

The bar: A little no-name hole in the wall place that’s secluded in a back alley. There’s no sign – it’s just there. It’s barely lit -candles align the walls and tables. The music: A subtle jazz number coming from the piano hidden in the corner. The piano player is old, and continues to take [...]

Just to clarify, FTW stands for “for the win”. The Beauty Bug knows what you’re thinking, and no, “For The Win” isn’t a part of her regular vocabulary – She gets it from the Beauty Bug Boyfriend. Back to the matter at hand… The summer brings out the worst in The Beauty Bug’s hair and [...]

MAC C-Shock

Wednesday, June 20th, 2007

File this under: So completely wrong. Suitable for only a clown. Impossible to wear. Perfect for Halloween or other costume parties. Stunningly horrific (and by the The Beauty Bug means, it’s so bad you can’t take your eyes off of it) Wouldn’t even wear it on a dare. Now, let’s ask the guys what they [...]

Mascara Memories

Monday, May 14th, 2007

As a young Bug, The Beauty Bug always idolized the MAC makeup artists at her local mall. She’d visit them often and they all knew Her. The Beauty Bug remembers a time when she’d go to the counter (this was maybe, 5-8 years ago) and her favorite MAC artist would tell her not to buy [...]

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 [...]

Lancome’s New Pop Cherub Spring Line

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

I just got an email about Lancome’s new Pop Cherub spring line, and it bears a striking resemblance to MAC’s Danse collection. If I just saw this piece of Lancome creative out of context, I may have even thought it part of the MAC Danse line.Also, the name of the collection is lacking? Just naming [...]

The Beauty Bug Thinks it’s Vamp…

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

The Beauty Bug is so lucky to have one of her bestest friends from childhood as a guest blogger – we’ll call her Vamp. The Beauty Bug fondly remembers her and Vamp obsessing over MAC makeup and their then new perfume line. In fact, The Beauty Bug and Vamp were complete MAC snobs (not much [...]
