MAC Haute Dogs vs. MAC Fabulous Felines?

MAC Haute Dogs or MAC Fabulous Felines — which team are you on? Goooooo, CATS! I’m Team Cat this time. I loved the three color stories from the Fabulous Felines collection, and I think that launch was the first time MAC did a lot of colors for the Superslick Liquid Eye Liners. Show More Summary

MAC Haute Dogs Collection Fall 2015

It’s time to raise the roof! (Get it? Sorry…) It’s MAC Haute Dogs time. I wish I could have hired a professional dog actor to serve as my cuddly co-broadcaster for this video… I guess I could’ve put Tabs in a dog outfit, or better yet,...Show More Summary

Do You Ever Feel Uncomfortable Wearing Makeup Around People Who Don’t? 

Sometimes I do, and the funny thing is…most of the time when it happens, I’m around close friends and family. This occurred to me on the weekend trip I took to Napa with my friends Jen and Cindy a few weeks ago. Neither of them are big into makeup. Show More Summary

Dressing Room Makeup Hack: Use Your Shirt As a Protective Barrier When You’re Trying on Clothes

Have you ever accidentally gotten makeup on the clothes you were trying on in a dressing room? (Uh…I am totally guilty of doing this, and yes, I’m a little ashamed.) Even though I always do my best to keep it from happening, sometimes...Show More Summary

Tuesday Tip: Apply Moisturizer Before Your Face Primer

I know I say this all the time, but that’s because it’s freakin’ true! — it really does take a village, so to speak, when you’re trying to do the whole smooth/flawless skin thing, or as close as you can get to it. Oh, my goodness, yes,...Show More Summary

Is Anyone Else Breaking Out Right Now?

Please tell me I’m not the only one breaking out right now. Sad panda! I’ve got a few tiny whiteheads along my hairline, my jawline, and some on my chest as well, and this is probably TMI, but I’m going there anyway…but I have one on my left booty cheek, too. Show More Summary

Best of Benefit Sephora Exclusive Kits

If YouTube could figure out a way to transmit a glass of lemonade and a plate of cookies while people were watching videos like this one about the new Best of Benefit Sephora exclusive kits, they could take over this whole freakin’ planet, NO JOKE. Show More Summary

#LiveInColor With Féria (SPONSORED)

Advertorials like this one are brought to you by my sponsors. They’re carefully chosen based on what I think you might like; however, this post was entirely written by the sponsor. For the bold, the colorful and the risk-takers, dare to #LiveInColor with Féria. Show More Summary

Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 386

You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?” Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past seven years. Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 359

Tabs isn’t just about brawn and beauty. He’s brainy, too. Like, did you know that he has a degree in women’s studies from UC Davis, and that this fall he’s pursuing his PhD in peace and conflict studies at UC Berkeley? I guess that probably doesn’t surprise you. Show More Summary

Comment to Win a $50 eGift Card From MAC! (Ends Monday)

What a day! I had an interesting, exciting one yesterday. That’s why I wasn’t around much. Tabs had to hold down the fort at MBB headquarters because I was in the city shooting five (!) videos for a makeup project later this year, and...Show More Summary

The Fab 5, Vol. 8: Chanel

Those double Cs, man! They get me every time. I’ve drooled over and chased after Chanel for… I don’t even know how long! Years and years. It’s one of my favorite beauty brands (and fashion and accessories, etc.) of all time. Makeup-wise, their permanent collection is huge and daunting. Show More Summary

Bring Your Foundation Up Into Your Hairline So It Doesn’t Look Super Obvs

Are you wearing foundation, or is that a kabuki mask? Or, who’s that guy who wore the scary white hockey mask in those slasher movies? Was it Jason Voorhees?? Ah, the dreaded line of makeup demarcation… Well, this is one of those things...Show More Summary

MAC Pearlglide Intense Eyeliner: Have You Felt the Pearlglide Power?

Go With the Grain When You Apply Powder (and Foundation)

Facial hair. Unless you don’t mind sitting in front of the computer for the next four hours, let’s not even go there… OK, let’s go there anyway. In my years on the road to Mrs. Chewbacca-ville (it’s been a good ride!), I’ve made a few...Show More Summary

Would You Ever Let Your Significant Other Paint Your Toenails?

No. No way. There is absolutely no way that’s ever gonna happen. I’ve seen this scene play out in movies before, where the dude paints his lady’s toenails, usually on a messy bed in a sun-dappled bedroom, and I guess it’s supposed to...Show More Summary

Restocking Old MAC Faves

Doesn’t it seem like the MAC Paint Pots dry out in bunches? Or does it just seem that way to me? There I’ll be, doopdadoo, going about my business, when I’ll open one of ’em to find it dried out, and then it’s like all of a sudden the...Show More Summary

5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

1. Lime-flavored ANYTHING Forget about lemons. Limes are where it’s at, man. So sour… So good! I was into key lime pie a few weeks ago (haha, I know, I shift gears often), but now I’m all about lime candies and — OOH! — limeade! It’s like lemonade but made with limes (obvs). Show More Summary
