Don’t ya just love when a product does double beauty duty? Me too. That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on Glamo-Glitz by Scarlett Cosmetics.

Glamo-Glitz is a one-of-a-kind product that can be used in seven different ways! These mineral-based loose cosmetic dusts are multi-functional, and are used on eyes, cheeks, lips, body, highlighting and even for mascara. Here’s how it works…

Eye Shadow: Use wet or dry and sweep lightly or dramatically over lid.

Eye Liner: Dip an eyelining brush into water and then into Glamo-Glitz, and sweep along lash line. The ones with glitter look fabulous this way!

Lips: Put petroleum jelly on lips then mix one part water with two parts Glamo-Glitz and dab onto lips.

Mascara: Mix two parts water with one part Glamo-Glitz and put onto lashes with a disposable mascara wand. Need a shocking teal mascara but can’t find it? No problem, make one from your Glamo-Glitz. Do not wear glitter formulas if you have contact lenses, though.

Cheeks: Dip a blush brush into your Glamo-Glitz and swep onto cheeks.

Decollete: Get a big, fat brush and brush over this area – as well as shoulders. Very sexy!

Nail Polish: Adding your choice of Glamo-Glitz color to clear nail polish can make a custom color. It blends smoothly so you don’t have to worry about clumps and the nail polish not drying. Try mixing one that has glitter in it!

In the photo, you can see a few of my favorite Glamo-Glitz shades (from top to bottom – Gypsy, Mombasa, and Pop Star). I wet the powders so that they would photograph more vividly; but please note that they also can be used for a sheer wash of color. That’s why they’re so great – because they’re all-purpose!

Scarlett Cosmetics are sold by select retailers in the U.S., U.K., and Hong Kong. But no matter where you’re from, you can live the Glamo-Glitz life by visiting scarlettcos.com.

VIG (Very Important Gloss)

ogloss VIG (Very Important Gloss)
A few weeks ago, I blogged about mood-changing lip glosses and recommended purchasing Too Faced Mood Swing over Smashbox O-Gloss; my reasoning was that they were essentially the same product and Mood Swing costs less. Well, I take it back. I take it all back.

Yesterday, I received a tube of O-Gloss in the mail (courtesy of Allure Experts) – and I am deeply in love with this gloss. The moment the clear gel hit my lips, it morphed into the most flattering shade of pink…I was very impressed. Rich in antioxidants and botanicals, this non-tacky gloss moisturizes with avocado oil.

O-Gloss has already become a staple in my makeup bag.

Available at Smahbox.com and Sephora.

Shanghai Surprise: NARS Spring 2008

shanghailily Shanghai Surprise: NARS Spring 2008
For Spring, NARS presents Shanghai Lily

The ultimate dichotomy of innocence and seduction, NARS Spring 2008 mystifies with a mélange of hues delicate yet robust, creating the modern hybrid of feminine temptation.

OMG. You are going to love this collection! If you think the colors look good on your computer screen, wait until you see them on your skin (below, you can see the products on my skin)! The velvety shadows glide on like, well, velvet – while Dolce Vita Lip Gloss and Belle de Jour Lip Pencil are classics reinvented in new formulations.

nars+010 Shanghai Surprise: NARS Spring 2008
Here’s what I’m wearing (that’s my arm):

Left column
Alahambra Eye Shadow Duo – golden champagne and metallic rose mist

Middle column
Top: Success Lipstick (burnt sienna semi-matte)
Bottom: Manhunt Lipstick (sheer poppy red)

Right Column
Top: Dolce Vita Lip Gloss (sheer dusty rose)
Middle & Bottom: Stolen Kisses/Pampa Lip Stain Gloss (sparkling caramel pink/nutmeg with a touch of shimmer)

As you can see, these colors truly take you from day to night. There’s nothing garish in this collection – but don’t be fooled; Shanghai Lily is anything but a shrinking violet. This is but a sampling of the products; check the website for a complete list.

Spoiled Pretty Prediction: Like its predecessor, Dolce Vita Lip Gloss is going to fly off shelves – so you’d be wise to get yours sooner rather than later.

Rihanna Inspired By Charlize, Not Posh

Don’t lump Rihanna in with the all those celebs knocking off the ‘Pob’ (Victoria Beckham’s ubiquitous hairstyle).

af3 Rihanna Inspired By Charlize, Not PoshIn the January issue of Allure, the R&B star reveals that her edgy ‘do was actually inspired by Charlize Theron’s haircut in the action film Aeon Flux. Without getting permission from her record label, she “asked hairstylist Ursula Stephen to chop off her hair and dye it raven black in her L.A. hotel room.”

To get the Good Girl Gone Bad look, pick up the following Cover Girl products (Rihanna is the company spokesperson):

*Cover Girl LineExact Liquid Liner in Very Black
*Cover Girl Eye Enhancers in Tapestry Taupe
*Cover Girl TruBlend Naturally Luminous Blush in Pure Romance Cover Girl

Mood Swing

Posted on by daneen in Lipgloss | Leave a comment

moodswing Mood Swing
Are you the type of person who wears your heart on your sleeve? Now, thanks to Too Faced, you can wear your mood on your lips too. Mood Swing is a new lip gloss that changes color on your lips depending on your body heat, ph balance, and mood. The formulation starts off clear and blossoms into countless shades of pink – from cotton candy to deep fuchsia – depending on the wearer’s emotional state.

ogloss Mood SwingPersonally, I think the gimmick is kinda clever*. Nevertheless, I doubt I would ever purchase this product because I’m a control freak. Call me uptight or boring if you want to, but I don’t like surprises – and I really don’t like capricious cosmetics. But if you insist on wearing makeup with a mind of its own, I would recommend Mood Swing over Smashbox O-Gloss (which happens to be sold out online and in many Sephora stores). They’re essentially identical glosses, but with Mood Swing ($18.50 for .45 oz, versus $22 for .34 oz), you get more product for less money.

Or you could spend the same amount on a pretty pink that never changes its shade, but always looks great on you – regardless of your mood.

*Too Faced has another gimmicky gloss. FUZE Slenderize Guilt Free Lip Gloss is infused with fruit flavors and appetite curbing energy boasting ingredients found in FUZE Slenderize beverages. Supposedly, it “energizes and slenderizes.”
