Makeup and Beauty Blog Monday Poll, Vol. 498

So…what is the Monday Poll? 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 10 (!) years. (It’s like...Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 472

As soon as the door opened, Tabs shot off like a rocket! This morning he was over the moon to be going for his walk right before dawn, because, as you know, cats are crepuscular, and they get extra fired up at dusk and dawn. It started out great, too. Show More Summary

Saturday Surfing: October 21st, 2017

You know you’re a rebel when you take your coffee in a teacup. YES. I get a lot of questions about this Cat Whiskers cup and saucer set by Roy Kirkham, which I got at Homegoods, I believe (although it might have been Marshalls). I’mShow More Summary

Introducing 6 New Shades of Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner for Holiday 2017

Wait! Stop! Hold up… Please don’t walk away just ’cause these are glittery. I’m serious, you can totally wear the Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliners. I’ve been a fan of these for years because the glitter bits are so small and…classy?...Show More Summary

BECCA Après Ski Glow Face Palette for Holiday 2017

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I am not a snow person. I mean, I like hanging out in the lodge by the fire with a glass of wine on a bearskin rug after snowboarding… You get back to the cabin after a day on the slopes, have some hot cocoa and snacks. Show More Summary

BECCA Après Ski Glow Collection Eye Lights Palette for Holiday 2017

If the thought of wearing a face product on your eyes freaks you out (apparently, it does not freak me out, ha!), don’t worry. The new $45 BECCA Après Ski Glow Collection Eye Lights Palette is officially an eye product…even though the “shadows” in it have almost the same formula as the actual BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Powders.

The Nail Polish Club

The fires are slowly but surely being contained, and the air has cleared up enough to go for walks again. We went for one on Monday evening and found a sign advertising a new neighborhood business… For The Nail Polish Club! Two dollars...Show More Summary

Urban Decay Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette for Holiday 2017

Where the heck is the fallout? RIGHT? If you’re an Urban Decay fan, you expect a little fallout — OK, a ton of fallout — when you’re working with their eyeshadows. You just learn to live with it… At least I have. At least most people I know who love and use the brand have in the past. Show More Summary

Urban Decay Vice Metal Meets Matte Lipstick Palette for Holiday 2017

Is it just me, or is something usually a little off about the lipsticks that come in LE lipstick palettes? Like they feel and work different than they would if they came in a tube? I dunno… Maybe something changes when they pour them...Show More Summary

Unsung Makeup Heroes: Urban Decay Rehab Makeup Prep Lip Love

I realize that I keep talking about this lip balm, but it’s THAT. GOOD. I’ve gotten to the point where I have tubes everywhere. I have one on my nightstand. I have one in my Kate Spade wristlet… I’m thinking now that I also need to keep...Show More Summary

What’s Been Your Overall Experience With Temporary Press-On Nails?

It’s been both good and bad, depending on the era, but they’ve gotten SO MUCH BETTER since I used them in the ’90s! Back then it was all about Lee Press On Nails, and all of my friends used them… I don’t know why, because they were terrible! I...Show More Summary

MAC Unsung Heroes: Saddle Eyeshadow

I know that a few of you gals and dudes who visit MBB also ride horses, so I need to know — does MAC Saddle Eye Shadow in any way remind you of actual saddles? Is this what color saddles are? Because I’ve never ridden a horse, so I have no clue. All I know is I love this color. Show More Summary

What’s the Last Beauty Product You Regret Buying?

The last beauty product I regret buying. Hmm… Well, there were a couple Fenty things that I thought were just eh. Like, the translucent setting powder didn’t really rock my world (it looked a little too powdery for me), and the concealer stick, while I ???? the color, doesn’t give me the coverage I need. Ah, beauty regrets… We’ve all had ’em. Show More Summary

Swatches of the MAC Liptensity Lip Pencils, Which Are Available Now in the MAC Permanent Line

You’d think that I, as a Greek mythology enthusiast, would already know the correct pronunciation of the word “Dionysus,” which is one of the shades in the new (and now available in the MAC permanent line) MAC Liptensity Lip Pencils. Is...Show More Summary

Sundays With Tabs the Cat, Makeup and Beauty Blog Mascot, Vol. 471

It was smoky outside today, so Tabs and Connor Claire didn’t spend a lot of time outdoors. They did do some gardening, though, because the poor garden needed some love. They watered together and pruned and moved the watering can from...Show More Summary

Saturday Surfing: October 14th, 2017

The dawn has been different every day this week. The bright, buttery sunlight that usually streams through my office windows most mornings has been an angry, oppressive sour gray tinged with red, and I can’t lie… It’s been terrifying. The Sonoma and Napa fires keep inching closer. Show More Summary

Swatches of All 22 MAC Liptensity Lipsticks, and a Quick NorCal Fire Update

The fires are still raging in Sonoma and Napa. It’s still bad up there, and it’s pretty smoky here, but it isn’t terribly windy right now, which is one small blessing. Hopefully it stays that way for another day or two, and then maybe some of the fires can be contained. Show More Summary

NARS Man Ray for NARS Holiday Collection: The Kiss Has It in the Bag

So, I know it’s like totes cliché to be a makeup lover obsessed with lip prints, but I am. It is what it is. And the bag in the new NARS The Kiss Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set ($49) has the cutest lip print. It’s from the new NARS ManShow More Summary

Both Brights and Neutrals Play Important Parts in the New MAC Rossy de Palma Collection

Described as a Picasso come to life, and Almodóvar’s muse, Spanish actress and model Rossy de Palma was something of an ‘it’ girl in the ’90s, but I seem to have missed that memo, lost to the same college vortex that sucked up the memo about Friends. Yes, the TV show. Show More Summary
