Everybody should try Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils. Seriously, these are amazing eye liners, because they are highly pigmented, deliciously smooth, and last all freakin’ day long. Let’s face it, finding an eye liner that sticks around until lunch time is already worth checking out, but one that really keeps on workin’ past dinner?

Have you found an anti-aging product that’s worked for you? We always hear about how ineffective anti-aging products are, is it really true?
I thought I might share with you this stunning red lip combo I stumbled upon a few days ago. Port Red lipstick + Cult of Cherry lipgloss. Yes, yes, try it for yourselves. You will love it!
Aside from it being all-too-obvious and predictable at the VMAs (and let’s face it, maybe a ploy by MTV for Project: Save Britney), Britney did look much more like her old self. Glowy, healthy, and maybe even happy–a little bit? I admit, MTV got me, I tuned in just to see what Britney was going to do for the opening act. I’m not much for sketch comedy, and I’d have rather seen a performance, but hey, at least she didn’t fall flat on her face like last year.
Anyway, the real point of this post is to show you three ladies who rocked some fierce beauty at this year’s VMAs. Britney (above, duh), Taylor Swift (love her!), and Christina Aguilera (stunning look!). Britney had a metallic silvery smoky eye going on with some ultra black, ultra dramatic lashes (false lashes or super duper mascara… or both?). Taylor seemed like she did a mostly black smoky eye, but she kept the rest of her face neutral and peachy–and why is she blessed with such phenomenal skin? So not fair. Christina always gets me with her choices in makeup. You see her with a classic red lip all the time, but tonight she rocks an intense black cat eye, with some creative lining underneath the eye–love when I see something different on celebs.
Who did you think looked their very best at the VMAs? So many celebs and artists to choose from, but these three that I thought I’d highlight. Rihanna had some cute navy liner for her entrance, and Jordin Sparks looked sultry with her smoky eye, too!

Many moons ago, I reviewed several Pacifica products, from candles to body butters, and now I’m happy to review their latest product: solid perfumes. At just $8.95 a pop, it makes it easy to collect ‘em all (five, that is) or just get your favorite scent. Every girl needs at least one solid perfume, if only for how portable they are. Even with today’s tighter restrictions on traveling, these can help you save some space in your liquids’ bag.
My favorite scent was Spanish Amber, and I found Tibetan Mountain Temple, Avalon Juniper, and Madagascar Spice to all be very spicy/woodsy. Mexican Cocoa is like a spicy chocolate scent; the sweetest of the five available. If you’re all over vanilla and bright floral scents, these might not tickle your fancy. However, when fall rolls around, I always reach for more intense scents like these, so they’re well-timed.
For my animal lovers, heads up! These solid perfumes are 100% organic and vegan. Even the tin they come in is recycleable.
Slip one into your purse for whenever you need a scent pick-me-up!
