Benefit Rockateur: Review and Photographs

Image
*This Post Contains an Affiliate Link*  Hello gentle readers. Last November, one of my Birthday Month, Retail Therapy makeup purchases was Benefit Rockateur. I don't know what it was about this particular makeup item, but every time I saw it, be it on a blog, in a YouTube video, in an ad, on a store's website, I wanted it more and more. I just had to have it. So, the moment my budget loosened up, I ordered it from Sephora. Or was it Ulta? Ah, hell. I can't remember which, now. It was one or the other. I had to order it online because there are no stores up here in Podunk-Hell-On-Earth-Ville where a person can buy Benefit. Unthinkable, I know. The conditions under which I am forced to live! Benefit Rockateur is marketed as a rose gold cheek powder. It is a warm rose-mauve very finely milled powder with a super fine golden radiance. The shimmer is not obvious or obnoxious. I don't feel as if my cheeks are covered in sparkle or glitter or fairy dust when I am wearin

*Press Sample* Hello gentle readers. Incoco  Sweet Surprise Collection for Valentine's Day 2014  adds five brand new fun, romantic designs to it's line up of sweet, heart themed nail treats for lovers of love everywhere. Today I am showing you Made With Love, a drip and swish style nail art applique in gradated shades of pink and red on a crisp, white ground. I was tickled to receive this design from Incoco as I have always wanted to do this design and wear it but my attempts to create it on my own have met with abject failure. I enjoyed wearing these appliques so much. I was sad when they wore out and I had to remove them. I really like Incoco Real Nail Polish Appliques. Seriously. I do. I love them for their one and done ease. Apply them and get on with my life. No sitting around waiting for them to dry and cure, no worries about denting or smearing. Instant pretty. I get an average of five days wear time out of a set of Incoco nail appliques. Not the fourteen da

Super Nails for a "Super Bowl"

Hello gentle readers. Before we get started, I suppose that I should say that the following post is written in tongue in cheek, light hearted fun. No disrespect is intended toward any state, sport, team, fans. Good grief, do I really need to say this? Now, anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that:  Seriously, I couldn't care less about football. I never know who is playing, who is winning, who is losing, who is up, who is down, who is in, who is out. I half paid attention to one football game, one time in my life. A few? years ago when the Chicago Bears were in the Super Bowl, to support my husband's fandom and excitement. Aren't I a good little wifey? That was my sole glimmer of interest. Until this year. You see, the two teams that are competing in the Super Bowl this year are both from states that have recently legalized marijuana for recreational use. When I heard that the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks would be playing, my ears went
