Recessionista’s Fabu-less Pick of the Week: Flirt Cosmetics GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip Lacquer

Flirt+Glamourazzi+Lip+Gloss Recessionista’s Fabu less Pick of the Week: Flirt Cosmetics GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip LacquerSo, okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to Stila and all, but I recently discovered a satisfying stand-in for the cult classic Lip Glaze – just in case there is some truth to the bankruptcy rumors.

With a click of the pen, Flirt Cosmetics’ GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip Lacquer delivers high-watt shine with a non-sticky formula. And the crème brûlée fragrance is a sweet surprise.

Originally $12, it’s , which is less than half the price of its prestige counterpart.

GLAMOURAZZI is available in 15 shades (I’m partial to Red Hottie) and is sold exclusively at Kohls.

Get Naked: Troy Jensen’s Favorite Nude Lip Colors

kim+kardashian+nude+lips Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip Colors
It’s no secret that I absolutely adore and envy Kim Kardashian’s makeup. If there was a Face Off type situation, and I had to swap mugs with someone, Kim would be high on my list…primarily because I cannot get enough of the way she wears a nude lip. Aside from Angelina, nobody does it better.

nars+belle+de+jour+and+giza Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip ColorsSo Troy Jensen‘s recent post about his favorite nude lip colors was a godsend for a Kim copycat like me. In the photo above, Troy used NARS Belle Du Jour Lipstick topped with NARS Giza Lip Gloss.

“The colors blend beautifully with her creamy golden skin tone,” Troy says. “The art of creating the perfect nude is finding one that works with your skin tone and also the shape of your lips. Fuller lips can get away with the palest nude shades while thinner lips will need a bit more color or lip liner for definition. Whatever shade you choose, be sure to pair it with a beautiful smoky eye.”

My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in Fulfilled

 My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in Fulfilled

When it comes to a MAC products, my sister and I are drawn to them like moths to a flame. So when we visited the Willow Grove Mall a few days ago with Mama Spoiled Pretty, it was no surprise that we couldn’t escape without a visit to the MAC counter at Bloomingdale’s. What was supposed to be swift stopover ended up being a half-hour spending spree.

While Lauren let the makeup artist paint her eyes in hues of blue, I made a beeline for the lip glosses – swatching at least a dozen on my inner arm. And my low-maintenance mom looked on in awe, wondering how she birthed such product-addicted daughters. When Lauren’s makeover was complete, she joined me in playing with the glosses. I asked for her opinion of MAC Plushglass in Fulfilled, which I was seriously considering adding to my collection. “It’s sick,” she exclaimed. So I decided to buy it…and so did she.

 My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in FulfilledThough it’s described as ‘full-blush creamy pink,’ I think that cantaloupe-y cream pink would be more accurate. As you can see in the photo, it wears super sheer – and inflates the lips without the burning sting that accompanies many lip plumpers.

I love this formula and adore this shade. And while my lip gloss collection is incalculable, I definitely feel like a void has been filled by Fulfilled. It will be my go-to non-shimmery gloss when I’m playing up my eyes, but I still want a come-hither kisser.

Um, Excuse Me…There's A Guy In My Lipgloss

urban+decay+pocket+rocket Um, Excuse Me...There's A Guy In My LipglossUrban Decay’s new combines a girl’s two favorite things: guys and gloss. Whether you swoon for a future senator or a tree hugger, one of the many men in this collection is sure to please you. And you might even recognize a few from The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency.*

With the tilt of the tube, your well-dressed man strips down to his undies. Front and rear photos are included for your viewing pleasure, and the flat tube slides right into your pocket.

And, this lip gloss formula is so slick and cushiony you would love it even if it were packaged in a plain ol’ squeezy tube. Each highly pigmented shade varies in opacity and finish, and the crème brûlée flavor will satiate your sweet tooth. The formula contains Hyaluronic Spheres known to improve cellular function, prevent dehydration, and fill in lines and wrinkles. The brush applicator is ideal for blending and if you give the tube a rub, pheromones are released into the air to enhance mood and sexual attraction.

Jesse Um, Excuse Me...There's A Guy In My Lipgloss
Jesse (blackberry with warm sparkle): Jesse owns a dingy cave of a bar on the Sunset Strip, pouring whiskey and cheap beer for rock royalty. Undress him to see where his tattoos end and your one-night stand begins.

Urban Jungle: Lise Watier Savanna Dream Spring 2009 Collection

LiseWatier Savanna dreams Urban Jungle: Lise Watier Savanna Dream Spring 2009 Collection
Those who know me will tell you I’m a sucker for anything animal print. Throw a zebra or leopard pattern on anything – doesn’t matter what it is – and I’m pulling out my wallet. So it’s no surprise that I’m wild about Lise Watier’s new spring range, Savanna Dream.

This “exotic and contemporary collection” is inspired by the untamed nature of the African plains and includes eye shadows, bronzing powder, lip pencil, and lipstick…but my favorites, paws down, are the lipgloss and mascara.

lise+watier+wow+gloss+swatch Urban Jungle: Lise Watier Savanna Dream Spring 2009 CollectionGloss WOW in Savanna Dream is a glittery gloss that adds pizazz to any shade of lipstick. Worn alone, it bathes bare lips with a gilded, prismatic effect. Peep the gloss swatch on my hand…doesn’t it just make you wanna purr?

The 24Hrs Glam Mascara uses tube technology to add extreme volume and length to lashes until you’re ready to take it off. Which means, on weekdays around 2:30pm when I inevitably starts rubbing my eyes, I won’t end up looking like Tammy Faye. 24Hrs Glam Mascara is part of the spring collection but will remain as an extension to the Lise Watier mascara line.
