I’ve gotten a few requests over the past few months to upload the song lyrics for my last album, Benediction (available on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby of course). The record was released in 2010 but many of the songs were written prior (sometimes years before). Here are the lyrics, in order of appearance on the album. Thank ya’ll!

This is the NEW Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Foundation and Sculpting Brush. They both launch in July and are both supposed to be $45. I’ll discuss the brush in a moment but first, let’s talk about this foundation - which I have been in LOVE with (you’ll find I love the brush too in a moment but just shut up and let me gush).
If I’m being honest, my favorite bronzers are liquids like Terra Firma’s Gel Matte Mineral Bronzer (which I’ve talked about in several videos) and Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Luminous Liquid - which comes out every year. And my favorite tools to use with these are my hands and fingers.
Sometimes though… I like to use creams or powders and when I do I’ll usually reach for one of these brushes. You can use any brushes you’d like of course (or none at all) but I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites.
I have a problem with bronzing blushes. I want them. All. Partly because I have next to zero warmth in my skin and on us cool-undertoned folks MOST bronzers on the market just look orange. Like, really orange. That’s because most bronzers rely heavily on a golden hue to make you look tan - fine if you have warm/yellow undertones but I don’t so I look like an Umpa Lumpa.
TIP: This can be rectified! If you have cool undertones try mixing your golden bronzer with a little pink or red blusher (you need to turn down the orange and turn up the red hues). This should give you something closer to “kissed by the sun…” instead of “pummeled by tangerines.”
This is where bronzing blushes come into play. Because on those of us who ARE cool-toned, these usually work quite well - and every summer companies start bringing them out left and right (often for a limited time). I have several and I love almost all of them! How do the new Wet n Wild bronzing blushes hold up? Find out…

Four years ago today I uploaded a video on how to de-tube your lipsticks and store them in stack-able, plastic containers:
I hadn’t even uploaded 10 videos yet! This one features a short song and music video at the end called Chicken at MAC. In honor of this special day, I’ve added the music video and the song (in both audio and video format) to my website for you to download! Happy anniversary Chicken at MAC!
NOTE: Remember if you have a question about these, use the button in the main menu to post it and I’ll answer you there!
Recently Revlon announced the return of five iconic Super Lustrous shades of lipstick - spanning six decades (albeit leaving out two hehe) and available only for a limited time. I love the concept behind the collection, especially coming from a company that’s been around as long as Revlon has, so naturally I had to pick all of them up!
Expect a more detailed review in the near future but for now I wanted to upload the swatch photos that I took of the new Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipsticks. These are 20 new shades in 4 different color groups: Nudes/Browns, Pinks/Berries, Corals/Reds and Mauves/Plums. This new formula contains hyaluronic acid to help moisturize and are said to stay color true on the lips for up to 6 hours. (and before you comment… it was COLD outside where I took these photos! You can see my goosebumps! LOL)
This summer Estée Lauder will once again release the Bronze Goddess summer collection - there are both color and fragrance parts of the collection. Here are some of the details I’ve received from Estée Lauder:
