Monday Beauty Poll

Monday, December 3rd, 2012
By Glinda

My last poll asked how you felt about Rita Hayworth’s 40’s hair, and it was split pretty evenly between lurve and lukewarm.  Me, I’m a big lurve on that one.

Hey, have you heard that eye crystals are trying to be a thing? The above was taken at Dior’s Spring 2013 runway show.

Holiday Beauty Gifts- On Sale!

Monday, November 26th, 2012
By Glinda

I think we can all pretty much agree that buying someone a gift on sale simply means that we are trying to buy more for them for the money.  In that spirit, here are some nifty beauty gifts that can be bought separately and put together in a makeup bag, or maybe one nice, big gift.  Either way, it’s a gift, and if they don’t like it they can give it back.

Sephora by OPI It’s Real 18K Top Coat.  Lots of great reviews for this top coat, a lot of luxe in a little bottle!

You can never go wrong with a pretty little compact.  This one is from Tarina Tarantino.

Adorable leather ponytail wraps.

Just give up the pretense of gift-buying and get them for yourself, already.

Go ahead and take the plunge for the friend you know will love these but hasn’t yet bought for herself.

You gotta love a palette that has almost everything.  The colors look pretty compatible for many skin tones, but that is a very personal factor that must be taken into account before purchasing.  Of course.

Let’s face it, it’s an extremely low-tech Clarisonic. At least you’ll never have to buy batteries for it? But the reviews are overall pretty great.

Emma Watson “In Love” for Lancome

Thursday, November 8th, 2012
By Glinda

Due out in January, Lancome gives us a sneak peek at their “In Love” collection.


Loving the eyeliner, which if Emma is any indication, looks fantastic on brown-eyed women.

Also loving the lipstick, which I would like to have on my lips right now.

Not loving, however, the weird highlighting on Emma’s poor cheek.

YSL “Northern Lights” Holiday 2012 Collection

Thursday, October 4th, 2012
By Glinda

Inspired by the aurora borealis, this collection is full of color and shimmer.  I am especially liking that blue lip gloss, for some reason.  I have been dying to see what the blue/green lip glosses that are out actually look like on your lips.  Anybody?

Will the Headband Be Making a Comeback?

Tuesday, September 25th, 2012
By Glinda


Dolce & Gabbana styled their models with Baroque-inspired hair and jewelry during their recent runway show.

Good grief, those earrings are to die for!

As luscious and gorgeous as the ornamentation in the model’s hair looks, I’m guessing all of us here at home aren’t really able to replicate this look convincingly.

Will headbands step in and help us out?

Would you be willing to don a headband that was lavishly and beautifully ornamented?  Or do they give you a headache?

More Things I Covet: Guerlain Liu Holiday Collection

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012
By Glinda

Inspired by a classic Guerlain perfume, the Liu Holiday collection is pretty eye-catching.

Shimmer powder, loving the pouf.


Look! Pressed Meteorites!

Want the gold.

Luxe-looking, isn’t it?


The collection launches in October.


Things I Covet: Dior Grand Bal Holiday Collection

By Glinda

I don’t know about you, but the picture of the nail polish almost makes me want to drink it.  It’s like I’m mesmerized and can’t take my eyes off of it.  Probably some sort of subliminal advertising.  But I’d still buy it.

Kim Kardashian Channels Diana Ross

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012
By Glinda

And scares all the little children.

I’m going to go out on a limb and tag this photo as the main inspiration behind Kim’s look for a photo shoot:

I’m sorry, but Miss Diana has more talent and fierce diva-liciousness in her pinky toe than Kim Kardashian could ever hope to have.

Let us pray that Kim’s published photos are in black and white, for the sake of everyone’s retinas.

Flare Goes There

Thursday, August 9th, 2012
By Glinda



As much as I want to like this editorial, I don’t.

I’m seeing nothing particularly groundbreaking here, or perhaps I am just feeling old and jaded today.  Anyone else feeling non-jaded that wants to argue with me?

Things I Covet: The Life That Would Afford Me the Ability to Take This Photo

Wednesday, July 18th, 2012
By Glinda

I know that The Boss just expressed his displeasure at the whole Instagram thing, but this photo?

This photo totally kills it.
