Back to School Beauty - Tweezlight!

So- you are in your dorm room, with not the best of lighting, and your brows need some major plucking. What to do, what to do...

tweezlight.jpgWell, introduce yourself to Tweezlight. A handy new tweezer with a bright white light built right in. It is like having your very own personal brow spotlight.

The tweezers are made from a rustproof stainless steel, with spring tension and a precision sharp point. The bright LED white light provides a clear view of the smallest and finest hair, normally invisible to the naked, unlit eye. And they come in your choice of gold or silver finishes. Oh, and each pair comes with three additional batteries, so you know you will be in the light for years to come.

Tweezlight tweezers range in price from $9.95 - $19.99 and can be ordered at tweezlight.com.

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!
