Maybelline will launch Define-A-Lash Pulse Perfection Mascara in July. It is a battery-operated vibrating mascara, designed to deliver 7,000 vibrations per minute with each battery to last for a minimum of 130 days. (I wonder if that’s 130 days without stopping, or 130 of “typical” use.) It will be priced at $14.95 at mass retailers in July, but a special sneak preview on May 18th will enable interested buyers to purchase early for that day only. You can visit maybelline.com/pulse for details come May 18th.

Smile dazzleglass is a shimmery confection of peachy gloss with pink and gold pearl shimmer. Just a natural/easy-to-wear kind of color.
Steppin’ Out dazzleglass is a pretty in pink shade with lighter pink shimmer. It’s not really a hot pink, though it looks like it; it’s more wearable, because the formula runs sheer.
Love Alert dazzleglass is a deeper, more opaque raspberryish-pink shade with subtle dazzle shimmer. Looks almost like a lip stain.
Funtabulous dazzleglass is a fuchsia-purple shade with light and bright purple shimmer reflects in it. This is fabulous layered over hot pink and purple lipsticks.
Ikea’s Helmer($39.99) is a drawer unit with casters. It has six pull-out drawers, and it is an easy and cost-efficient way to store the majority of your makeup and beauty essentials. I know that a lot of ladies love to store their nail polish in these as well. I prefer the silver color, though it does come in red and white, too. The only downside to the Helmer unit is that the drawers aren’t tall enough to store my body products. (Also, these are misleading in size — they look VERY tiny, but they will store a lot of your bobs and bits!)
