Lot's of Lipgloss L-O-V-E!

Fellow blogger Annieytown over at Blogdorf Goodman has been having herself a Rock the Gloss challenge. She has challenged herself to wear a DIFFERENT lipgloss every day for the month of August. I have enjoyed reading her daily posts and wondered if I would have enough glosses to wear a different one every day for a month.

lipgloss.jpgWell, I don't know why I am surprised, but I have enough glosses to wear a new one for over 2 months! And this does not include my lip gloss palettes - I only counted the individuals! OMG!!! Should I be embarrassed that I have such an obsession with lipgloss??? And what may be worse is the fact that many of these glosses may have only been worn one time.

Here is my photo - shameful, I know. I don't even want to think of the investment here - well, just a quick average for ya, say $10 each. I could have easily bought a new pair of Jimmy Choos! But for some reason, I have a hard time justifying such a large individual purchase. Maybe I will think twice before picking up a new gloss next time - yeah, right! 


Benefit's BIG MAGIC Event for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Mark you calendars, ladies. Benefit Cosmetics is holding it's first National Event for a great cause.

benefit_bigmagic2.jpgBenefit Cosmetics is calling Saturday August 19th Hats Off to Big Brothers Big Sisters Day. Why August 19th? Well, that is the one year anniversary of their partnership with BBBS and it also the day they will launch their newest lipgloss, Big Magic 2, a gorgeous "sister" shade to the original Big Magic.

And the best part of purchasing a Big Magic 1 & 2 gloss is that 100% of the net proceeds from their sale will be donated to Big Brothers Big Sisters, the nation's leading youth mentoring program. 

So while you are out at the mall looking for falls latest or doing some back to school shopping, be sure to stop by your Benefit counter on the 19th to pick one up, and take a look see at what other goodies they have new too.

And by the way, I got to try Big Magic 2, and it is the most beautiful pink-nude pearly shade. It slides on smoothly and has the light, fruity scent that all the Benefit glosses do. It is perfect to wear alone for a great glossy look, or over your favorite lipstick to tone it down while adding a pearly finish to it.

Ooh - I almost forgot. It is only $14, a great deal for you, and BBBS too!


Back to School Beauty - The School House

This is no ordinary School House. The School House set from philosophy will help you take an A-B-C recess with the three great treats included.

"A" is for Apple - a 4 oz. Apple 3-in-1 Shampoo, Shower Gel and Bubble Bath - "a"hhh, the apple scent is so real and refreshing.

"B" is for Body Souffle - a 2 oz Apple Soothing and Moisturizing Body Soufflé - "b"est scented apple body cream ever.

"C" is for Cookie - a .5 oz lip-smacking, high-gloss Powdered Sugar Cookie Lip Shine - "C"lear shine with such a great cookie flavor.

And don't be afraid of the red color - it is just tinted for effect, and turns clear when applied almost immediately.

Who wouldn't want the ultimate "School is Cool" gift set in the greatest little box? This adorable set is exclusively available at Sephora and for a cool $35.00.

p.s. - this would make the best gift for the new teacher too!
