Bali Intimates rocks + giveaway

I believe in shapewear. And nobody (haha, literally) does it like Bali. I had the pleasure of meeting them at the Blogalicous Conference last Fall. I also met the fabulous June Ambrose who represented them. After getting fitted, I had the opportunity to test drive a pair of their firm control leggings.

Hit the jump to see how successful or unsuccessful I was in that department.

Hello Kitty Beauty by Sephora: Super Fun palette

Y’all already know how much of a Hello Kitty fan. And I was practically doing cartwheels when I heard that Sephora was coming out with a Hello Kitty Beauty line. I managed to grab a few of the items during the VIB sale.

First up…this super cute eye shadow palette.

But are the shadows as good of a quality as the the packaging?

Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats are All a’That!

I have never been a girl who loves heels. I can’t even pretend like I do. I was the lucky one to get the flat feet gene (thanks Dad) and wearing anything outside of flats or tennis shoes results in some kind of pain. Heels especially. But wearing those things are inevitable. I have to rock them to work, church, meetings and fancy functions. But mannnn, I SO want to hug whoever invented these Fast Flats.

Fold-able flats that can fit in my purse? Oh…yes.

LUSH’s Fizzy O’Therapy bath bomb

LUSH dominated most of the gifts that I gave away this Christmas. You’re familiar with LUSH, aren’t you? I’ve known about them for years now and I don’t know what happened but a LUSH bug must have bit me because now I’m obsessed. I want LUSH everything. But it’s better to give than to receive, right? Hence why I hooked up Mama Clumps with the Fizzy O’Therapy bath balm. I wrapped it up all pretty and put it in her stocking.

Amor de Lacquer: Emery boards vs crystal nail files

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

The other day one of my homegirls asked me which I preferred; emery boards or crystal nail files. While I have both, I lean more towards one than the other. Know which one that is?

Kat Von D and B: Black liner and tattoos

Kat Von D and I have something in common. We both love tattoos. Yeah, I know…some people are all like, “They are so unprofessional.” OR “They are too permanent. What if you change your mind?” :roll: I’ve got 5 tattoos and have yet to regret any of them. I’ve got them all in locations that are concealable and sag-proof.

That sound you hear is probably of my parents weeping. Sorry Mom. Sorry Dad. Your little girl is a rockstar.  And this New Year’s Eve, I’m going to be rockin’ the a super smokey eye. Courtesy of Kat Von D’s Autograph pencil.

Dry Skin Confessions

Oh gee, how do I start this off? I guess I should just come out with it.

I have dry skin. And I’ve always had dry skin. It’s not something I’m proud about either. It’s embarrassing. You can’t exactly go around scratching your lower back with intense frustration in public without people giving you the side-eye. But to my rescue, I present two drugstore (aka affordable) brands that have been coming to my rescue. First up…

Aren’t they sexy?
