Hey Dolls, I know it’s been a while since I posted a DDOTM feature ( I think I skipped a month!) so I will try to make this one as swell as possible 😉
I recently discovered a new shade of Wet n Wild’s Mega Last lipstick that really took me by surprise. While I have been a fan of this product for some time and have recommended it to y’all in previous postings ( i.e. Orange Pinup Lipstick), this colour is seriously impressive. For a cheapie lipstick, the colour intensity rivaled that of a high-end product. The consistency was wonderfully opaque and shockingly full-bodied and bold. And the shade itself? This is a pink that one would encounter in Barbie’s dreamhouse! It’s the quintessential girly girl shade of bright pink. It’s very clear with blue undertones. Continue reading →
While digging around in my closet this morning, I found one of my beloved childhood mementos…my “Munsters Brew” tee shirt! This shirt used to belong to my mom circa 1988 and I adopted it at some point when I was in high school. The Munsters was such an awesome show and I used to love watching the re-runs on TV when I was a kid. Lilly Munster, played by screen siren Yvonne De Carlo, was my favorite character. Her makeup was pretty awesome and today I decided to accent my tee with a Munster inspired makeup look! Continue reading →
Elizabeth Taylor was one of the most beautiful women of the 20th century. Most notably, for her amazingly rare eyes. They were said to be amethyst in color and Ms. Taylor always played up her most breathtaking feature with the help of a deep jet black eye liner. Continue reading →
This month’s post is a wee bit late (As it is almost the end of the month, lol) but its a good one!
As a retro pin up with vintage style, one of the key looks in your make-up arsenal is a bold red lip! Being an old-school kinda gal, a coordinating lip liner is essential for me in getting my lips just right. I know many women shy away from lip liner, but it is a huge component in making your lipstick stay in place and last all day. Just as a belt can define your waist, a liner can add definition to your unique lip shape! Continue reading →
I have been searching for the perfect turquoise/teal coloured nail polish for some time now. I ran into a friend of mine the other day while shopping around Soho when I spied her gorgeous manicure. When I asked her where she got it, she let me in on her cheapie DIY secret weapon. Continue reading →
I often like to peruse the cosmetics section of my local drugstore. While Sephora is an amazing source for all things beauty, the prices are more often than not a bit high for my thrifty budget. So while I was at Duane Reade yesterday afternoon, I checked out the Wet N’ Wild makeup display and this fabulous little pencil caught my eye. What really got me was the price sticker, a mere 49 cents! I decided I couldn’t go wrong and rushed home to give her a test drive. This pencil is truly fantastic! Wet N’ Wild’s Coloricon eye liners are now going down in the drugstore delight hall of fame! It went on very smoothly with a creamy texture and had major staying power to boot! I got the Turquoise shade and I want to buy all of the colors they make and at these prices, I absolutely can! Check it out for yourself at your own local drugstore! I guarantee you will not be disappointed!
