Love, love, love LORAC’s Visual Effection Collection!

I’m in love with Lorac’s new collection, the Visual Effection Collection! Curl, separate, and lengthen your lashes with Visual Effects Collection by Lorac. A $47 value. Collection includes:

  • Visual Effects Mascara in Jet Black and Midnight Blue
  • Travel Size Behind the Scenes Travel Primer
  • I tried blue mascara for the first time (in at least a decade) last night – and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised! It’s not obviously blue – it’s very subtle. But subtle enough to make a difference! It just made my eyes pop! I tried to take a picture – but you couldn’t really tell clearly, so I’ll spare you the cell phone picture of myself.

    Anyway – I love this new collection! My only complaint (and it’s just my personal opinion) would be the mascara brush. I’m just not a fan of the wand. I like a bristle brush – not a plastic brush… it’s a very strange applicator. Other than that – I loved it!

    These 3 products for only $20 on Ulta!

    Give the gift of Too Faced!

    I absolutely adore this foundation, its goes on so smooth on my face and evens out my skin tone perfectly. It’s very long wearing for a powder one application and I am good to go for the whole day. My favorite thing has to be how it improves the look of the texture of my skin, anything that diminishes my pores is great in my book!

    So how much does it cost to look like Demi Moore? $140K per year!

    Demi Moore may be one of the hottest 48-year-olds on the planet, but those looks come with one hefty price tag. Though she repeatedly denies having undergone plastic surgery (she does own up to her obvious boob job), new reports have emerged detailing the extensive surgical and non-surgical treatments Moore has received over the years. Prepare to have your mind blown.

    After turning 40, the mother of three allegedly spent around $311,000 on a head-to-toe overhaul, Heidi Montag style. She spent $25,000 on liposuction, $15,000 on breast implants, and $31,000 on facial work. She also became obsessed with the skin above her knees sagging, so she had them fixed.

    More recently are Moore’s Thermage skin-tightening treatments, which run around $3,000 a pop. This technique uses radio frequency to heat the deeper layers of the skin while cooling the skin’s surface. This tightens collagen and stimulates growth, which makes your epidermis appear tighter and smoother. Apparently she likes the results, because she’s been known to go in for treatments weekly.

    Whatever she spends, it’s obviously working. I mean look at her! She’s gorgeous!
