Lovely Lingerie From Adore Me

adore me lingerie bra and panty set reviewLike most women, one of my great joys in life is some luxurious undies. But many of us are plagued by the high prices and limited size selection at the big boys of the lingerie industry. Get a clue: not all of us are sized like or paid like Heidi Klum, people.  Continue reading “Lovely Lingerie From Adore Me” »

Ariana Grande’s Makeup Bag: Celebrity Makeup Tips

Ariana Grande Celebrity Makeup TipsAriana Grande has made a huge splash on the pop scene lately, but she’s been lurking in stardom for years via tween-friendly shows Victorious and Sam and Cat (now rumored to have been cancelled due to onset drama…Personally, I think it’s the high-pitched way she talks on that show *shudder*).

The super gorgeous pop star is famous for her rad set of pipes, but beauty isn’t a “Problem” for her either. Whether she’s rocking radiant red locks or her more recent ombre high ponytails, she always looks fab.

So have you ever wondered what’s in her makeup bag? Here’s the word, straight from Ms. Grande herself:

Ariana Grande Makeup How-To – Step By Step

  • LASHES: Ariana already has her eyelashes on, and recommends putting lashes on first even though that’s not the conventional wisdom so you don’t get powder in them. (I actually do my whole eye area except mascara before anything else, so I don’t fault her for this. Do what works for you!)
  • BASE: As a foundation and concealer, Ariana Grande mixes RCMA foundation (which is what they use on the set of Victorious) with her moisturizer and puts it on with your hands.
  • UNDEREYE: Ariana slathers the mixture on her “Sicilian/Italian eye bags” and wins my heart a little more.
  • BRONZER: Ariana uses one of my personal all-time favorite bronzers: BeneFit Hoola! I feel important now.
  • BROWS: Next, Miss Grande brushes her eyebrows with what appears to be an Anastasia brow brush.
  • SHADOW: Ariana uses an Anastasia brush with a flat end for all over the lids and a pointier one for in the crease. The shadow is a Too Faced duo with Cocoa Puff and Honey Pot (both of which are available in this palette): Honey Pot on the lid, Cocoa Puff in the crease.
  • LINER: Ariana uses Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Corrupt on both upper and lower lids.
  • MASCARA: Ariana lets her lashes “Break Free” (get it? oh I’m punny) with Clinique High Impact Mascara.
  • BLUSH: MAC Pink Swoon is Ariana’s cheeky go-to. She makes fish-face when she does it to get those cheekbones.
  • LIPS: Ariana uses Inglot Soft Precision Lipliner #74 all over lips, then tops with Maybelline 14 Hour Lipstick in Fuchsia Forever.
Priceless quotes from Ariana Grande about makeup:
  • “The object is to make yourself look nothing like yourself,” Ariana quips, quoting Jenna Marbles.
  • “I put my makeup on like a five year old doing an art project.” Total respect for Ariana Grande now.
  • “I usually just use the darkness of my tired eyes for my eyeshadow.”

Ariana posted this video on Youtube all about it, where she looks a lot like she has to sneeze:

Lisa Rinna Admitted Regretting Juvederm Injections

Former Dancing With The Stars contestant and possible Nip/Tuck inspiration Lisa Rinna has admitted to regretting getting Juvéderm injections in her face. Lisa told In Touch Magazine, “We all know everyone does it! We go on Jenny Craig and do all these things to change ourselves, so why can’t we get a little filler?” Key word there being a little, Lisa.

Lisa said she realized she went too far with the injections when she saw a picture of herself, “You have to be careful. I’m a perfect example of that!” To be fair, Lisa may have confused the picture with a shot of Mick Jagger. Continue reading “Lisa Rinna Admitted Regretting Juvederm Injections” »

M LAB Anti-Aging Treatment Cream Review

The greatest factor for me in choosing a moisturizer is how much the product sounds like it’ll actually do something. If there’s one thing M Lab Anti-Aging Treatment Cream delivers, it’s the promise of some kind of effect.

The cream is quite thick and a little gooey, but the scent is light, natural and fresh. Its initial feeling is a bit sticky, but it absorbs quickly. It creates a protective membrane that, once absorbed, is utterly weightless- yet effectively protects skin from environmental evildoers. Check out the multitude of clinically active ingredients it includes:
