Don’t forget our contest!


Shiny Mama, the new cosmetics line by Yana Chupenko (former director of product development and marketing for the now defunct makeup brand Tony & Tina), recently unveiled an assortment of products geared toward a glistening new you.

The Snow Queen collection features two Shimmer All eye shadows in Ice (silvery white) and Pink Crystal (golden pink), which can also be used as blush and powder. Plus, the colors are supposed to glide on easily with a sponge applicator beneath the cap. And get this: The shimmery concoctions can apparently be mixed with just about any other beauty product to achieve a sparkly effect.

Shiny Mama “draws from the most glamorous periods in history to create something timeless and new.” The packaging evokes a feel of vintage Parisian glamour. Shiny Mama Shimmer All is getting great customer reviews, you can use it as eyeshadow, blush, shimmer, or mix it with your lipstick or nail polish for a shimmery pearl effect.

I’m Baccckkk……


My husband and I decided to take the kids to Disneyland last week for a quick 5 day trip. We were having too much fun in California to go home and decided to hit a few more cities. Our final city was San Francisco we had only one day here and were driving out this morning. But as we headed out of the city this morning we decided we just couldn’t leave so we are staying a few more days. We may be living on rice and beans when we get home but for now we are having fun!

So for now I will be posting remotely to make sure no one misses on out any great new makeup products.


Vegas, Baby!


Hello all my product lovers. Well my dear (and lucky) friend Jocelyn was given a trip to Vegas with her hubby for her birthday. So she was whisked away on Saturday evening and won’t be back posting until Wednesday.

Now I know we all feel bad for her sleeping in, enjoying the pool with a cocktail. I know she wishes she could be here with me watching Dora and looking for the next great product. Maybe she will win big any buy me my own Sephora?

I can hear my coffee is now going and I better get posting. Have a great week and don’t feel too bad for Jocelyn. Maybe while she is stuck in those smoky, kid free casinos she will win a bunch of money.

 I’m the map, I’m the map, I’m the map, I’M THE MAP.
