Review -- CoverGirl Colorlicious Lip Lava

My lipgloss drawer is filled to the brim -- actually, it's pretty much overflowing at the moment.

I'm always having to move tubes around inside to get it to close properly.

That's definitely a sign that you have a gloss problem right?

But that didn't stop me from picking up one of the CoverGirl  Colorlicious Lip Lavas when I was at the drugstore recently.

In my defense, I could see them sparkling like crazy in their display even a good three or four feet away -- and as big a weakness as I have for makeup in general, my weakness for sparkly makeup is off the charts.

Review -- Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Monochrome

I was super excited when I heard that Hourglass was coming out with a new line of eyeshadows, the Modernist  Eyeshadow Palettes.

I have one of their old duos and 6-pan palettes, and I enjoy both immensely -- and besides that, I've loved virtually every product I've ever tried from the brand.

It seemed like a safe bet that these new palettes would be fabulous too.

So I stalked the Sephora website for days, waiting for them to make good on their "Coming Soon" promise.

Once the palettes were available for sale, there were about five of the seven shade options that I wanted, but I was good and only ordered one -- Monochrome.

Product Alert -- Tarte Be Your Own Tartetist 6-Piece TSV from QVC

(FYI -- I've been meaning to get this post up for days, but things have been a little crazy around here. We adopted a new dog -- yep, Charlie's got a big sister now: Brandy -- so I've been busy trying to wrangle two dogs. I'm hoping that all will calm down in the next week or so, and I'll be back to posting more regularly. Fingers crossed anyway.)

I am a sucker for all of Tarte TSV for QVC -- which means I would totally order them sight unseen just because I'm crazy like that -- but I was especially interested in the Tarte Be Your Own Tarteist Collection that will be available on February 13th on QVC and

That's because it contains four brand new products, including a new foundation, and I am always interested in trying out new Tarte goodies.

So I ordered the TSV early and have been playing with it for a week or so -- and I'm really enjoying. I'll give a quick rundown of the products, in case you've been thinking about picking it up and are on the fence.

Review -- Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer

There are times when I think my colors cosmetics are my absolute favorite types of makeup products -- it's hard to imagine getting more excited than I do over a fabulous new eyeshadow palette or great new lipstick formula.

But then every time, new complexion products come out and I'm practically tripping over myself to rush out and buy them.

Which is why I was pretty eager to try the new Maybelline Face Studio Master Conceal Camouflaging Concealer.

That's because I haven't really been able to find a drugstore concealer that I could use both under my eyes and on blemishes or discolorations on my face -- it seems like if one's thin and creamy enough for under the eyes, it doesn't have enough coverage for the blemishes, and if I find one that's thick enough to cover blemishes well, it creases like nobody's business under the eyes.
