Disappointed at the Lancome Counter

Friday, September 21st, 2007

The Beauty Bug loves to go shopping with Her Grandma, especially when they hit up the makeup counters. Grandma buys her clay mask from Lancome, and her Pure White Linen from Estee Lauder. This past weekend, when Gram’s was picking up her mask, The Beauty Bug thought she’d pick up a new Lancome mascara – [...]

The Beauty Bug has always said that great minds think alike… A London woman recently “lashed” out against L’Oreal after she suspected that Penelope Cruz was wearing false eyelashes in the commercial for its Telescopic Mascara. She protested to the UK’s Advertising Standards Authority who surprisingly listened and act. Refreshing, isn’t it? If you recall, [...]

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 [...]

Is there Tar in Drugstore Mascara?

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, [...]

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. [...]

Greetings from Your Old Friend Definicils

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

The Beauty Bug loves it when an old friend resurfaces and comes back into Her life! … You’ve heard The Beauty Bug’s spiel before – She likes to experiment and use different products – she basically has this “She can never get enough” mentality. Can you blame her? But, at some point, there’s always that [...]

Why Beauty Products are the Best Presents

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

The Beauty Bug is in the middle of reading Jean Godfrey-June’s book, Free Gift With Purchase.

The Beauty Bug came across this little blurb about why beauty products are the best presents and thought it was timely. [...]
