New! MAC Cosmetics DSquared2 Collection

Next week MAC Cosmetics is releasing the DSquared2 collection, a collaboration with fashion duo Dean and Dan Caten based on the makeup look from their Fall/Winter 2009 runway show. This release is all about a dark sooty eye with a light lip.

I’m excited for this release because there are a few things I want to check out and stock up on. I can’t wait to see the Greasepaints and try them out. What are they like? They are teasing me by looking like a Shadestick but by naming something Greasepaint, I’m already imagining they will crease on me. Either way, I’m a willing participant.

I also want to stock up on Lip Erase, everyone should have this in their makeup arsenal. It’s the perfect base or neutralizer for a nude lip. It just makes color pop on your lips because your lip tone is evened out.  I recently made an almost 3 hour drive to Vancouver, BC for this product. If I stock up, I don’t have to make that drive unless I want to. :)

Parissa Quick & Easy Wax Strips

I use to be totally in love with the Bliss Poetic Waxing Kit, it took care of all my waxing needs but when I started becoming a little anti-Bliss (I have my reasons), I found Parissa’s Strip Free Hot Wax was a much better fit for me. It’s much cheaper and I don’t have to mess with a water bath anymore.

parissa-quick-easy-wax-strips

With that said, there are still times when I don’t want to bother with warming up the wax, getting out the mini wooden spatulas and doing work. For those occasions, Parissa’s Quick and Easy Wax Strips are just perfect. They are so easy to use, all you do is warm the strips up in your hands, pull them apart and apply them to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. They are available for legs/body and face/bikini sizes and come with a vial of azulene oil to clean waxed areas, soothe irritation and inhibit hair growth.

Until I tried Parissa’s strips, I wasn’t a fan of the idea because the strips I tried in the past never quite worked for me. They wouldn’t pick up much and leave wax on my skin. That’s not the case at all with Parissa. I was amazed when the strips picked up most of my unwanted hair and didn’t leave any residue behind. They have fully restored my faith in the quick and easy wax. I’ll still continue to use my hot wax set but for those times when all I have is a few minutes to get rid of the unwanted hair, Parissa’s Quick and Easy Wax Strips will be my go-to product. Imagine how useful they would be when traveling? It never occurred to me but now it’s like… duh! ;)

Lisa Hoffman Madagascar Orchid Variations

I’ve mentioned that I love perfume oils, haven’t I? If not, I’m telling you now, I absolutely love perfume oils. :) They are rich and their scents last forever on the skin. That’s what it’s really all about with me. So being a perfume oil addict, this Lisa Hoffman Madagascar Orchid Variations set had me at hello.

lisa-hoffman-madagascar-orchid-variations

The idea with Lisa Hoffman’s different Variations sets is that you have a fragrance hat takes you through your entire day and each fragrance has 4 variations meant to be worn in the morning, daytime, evening and at bedtime. You may be wondering “who wears perfume to bed?”, well I do. It puts me at ease and honestly, makes me feel a little glamorous. Why hasn’t anyone ever done this before? This is a genius idea, plus the presentation is fantastic. The four vial are stored in the leather wallet seen here.
