Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 484

Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant Is the Beyoncé of Antiperspirants

Is it weird to get excited about deodorant? Wait — never mind. Ya know what? I don’t even care, because Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant is the Beyoncé of underarm products.

Models Own Sculpt & Glow Can Highlight My Cheekbones Any Time

I wonder what Models Own was aiming for when they designed these Sculpt & Glow Highlighting Powder pans…because sometimes when I look at them I see the cross section of a tree trunk’s rings. Or a bullseye. Or a nipple (says the woman who just KonMari’d her nursing bras to Goodwill!!!). British makeup brand Models Own is available in the U.S. Show More Summary

Dear Models Own Colour Chrome Eyeshadow Palette, Where Did Ya Go?

These Too Faced Chocolate Brow-nie Cocoa Powder Brow Pencils Smell Just as Good as They Look

I hope you’ll be able to forgive Ryan Gosling after he announces in Us Weekly that he’s leaving his baby mama (a.k.a. Eva Mendes) for me, because after he gets a whiff of my eyebrows, he’s going to realize that he can’t live without K-Dawg. Show More Summary

Blackie’s Pasture in Tiburon, California

So, this morning I drove down to Southern Marin for a dental appointment, and sigh… What I can I say? I feel like I’ve gone to the dentist every other day this summer. Heck, though, I’m thankful for modern dentistry, because I can only...Show More Summary

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette

R+Co Sail Soft Wave Spray Sets a Course for Good Hair Days

Did I wake up with my hair looking like this? HELL NO, GIRL! This is all R+Co’s doing. I’ve been using a styling product in their line called Sail Soft Wave Spray ($29).

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 457

Two toothsome morsels made this morning’s MBB perimeter patrol more interesting than usual.
