Eau de Off

mosquito+dating Eau de OffI am highly allergic to mosquito bites. Which means that if I’m outdoors for any length of time, you best believe that I’m covered – from head to toe – in insect repellent.

So when my parents threw a backyard barbecue for Father’s Day (when my in-laws were in town from Spokane, WA), I brought along a can of Off FamilyCare Smooth & Dry. It has a unique powder dry formula that dries on contact, leaving your skin feeling smooth and dry, unlike ordinary repellents. Plus it keeps mosquitoes, gnats, ticks, biting flies, chiggers and fleas at bay all day.

And I kid you not…Smooth & Dry has such a pleasant scent, someone actually asked me what perfume I was wearing!

I mean, how adorable are these new decorative vanity packs from Q-tips? They’ll make your old blue box turn green with envy.

One of these compact cubes houses 285 of the multipurpose swabs that you know and love. A drawer slides out, which allows easy access to the Q-tips (and, consequently, ups this product’s cleverness and convenience quotient). It adds a pop of color to your bland bathroom countertop.

Colors You Can’t Wear That You Wish You Could

bad+makeup Colors You Cant Wear That You Wish You CouldHow many times has this happened to you?

You’re at the cosmetics counter and you lock eyes with one of the most gorge shades on the planet. But after swiping the color on your hand, you find that it’s just not that into you.

It’s too dark, too pasty, or too trannylicious for your complexion. Don’t cha just hate when that happens?

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen in love with a nude lip gloss that looks all Angelina Kardashian in the tube – but on my lips, it’s more like CSI cadaver. And don’t get me started on my love/hate relationship with NARS Orgasm blush.

Which products/colors do you have unrequited love for?
