I will never, never stop loving glittery eyeliner, no matter how old I am! Lucky for me, these glitter eyeliner pencils from Femme Couture are easy on my wallet and can be found at Sally Beauty.

Deborah Lippman nail polish doesn’t mess around. It’s not simply shimmery or sparkly, it’s packed full of actual glitter. This particular style, called “Happy Birthday,” contains a rainbow of reflective confetti, and can be layered over other colors to create different looks.

Dear Christina Aguilera,
Mariah here. You know me as multi-platinum zillion-selling recording artist Mariah Carey, but you can just call me Mimi. Me and a few of the S&M crew (that’s singing and movies crew, guys!) wanted to reach out to you because we heard you had a new movie coming out, called “Burlesque.”
First: Soooooo sorry about Lady Gaga stealing your whole kooky blonde lady steez — we heard you had to cancel a bunch of dates on your last tour because you just couldn’t get it together. No worries, mama.
But back to “Burlesque.” Keep reading »
