File this under: So completely wrong. Suitable for only a clown. Impossible to wear. Perfect for Halloween or other costume parties.

Thursday, January 11th, 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 [...]
