MAC Haute Dogs Mineralize Lipsticks


If you know what a dog lover I am you'll  get how much I loved that MAC had a dog themed collection. Ok Haute Dogs did not include a German Shepherd, their loss , but it's still about the canine. Well ,really it's about the makeup.

There are new Mineralize Lipsticks with the collection and all three I've got here are beauties.

Rare Breed is my favorite , one that is an everyday , always looks good kind of color and I am already using it a lot.  It's a not too pale pinky nude with pearl shimmer.

Nose For Style is is a deep wine red. Totally the on trend color for Fall while the best named Barking Gorgeous is a very light orange-y peach with shimmer.

To go along with  Haute Dogs MAC has quiz to find your "inner dog personality"  http://www.machautedogs.com/

And if you want to share a selfie of you and your best dog pal use #MACHauteDogs and  #MACsBestFriend  and you might get featured on MAC's social pages.

MAC Haute Dogs Mineralize Lipstick is $ 23 and available now.

Clinique Skinny Sticks Eyeliners


Chubby works well for lips and cheeks but what about liner? Well that's where skinny comes in.

After a hugely successful run of Chubby Sticks , new from Clinique are Skinny Stick eyeliners. These self sharpening liners are super skinny for easy , tight to the line application with long wear time.


They are fairly creamy but do have a bit of drag  and I went over the line twice to get the fullest color payoff I wanted.

For getting a quick tight line whether at the waterline or above you can't beat the size of this liner . The super skinny size makes them a great travel companion as well. You could stash multiples in a bag without taking up any room.

Shown is Olive -Tini  and there are eight colorful shades in all.

Clinique Skinny Sticks are $16.50

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve Jumbo Size / amfAR


Love Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve or are a hand cream nut in general ( guilty here and not sorry about it)  then how about a giant size tube ?

Kiehl's , to coincide with their 6th annual Life Ride event which just concluded across the Western States (hit up their Twitter or Instagram  or #LifeRide6 for some  gorgeous scenic and fun photos of Utah, Arizona , Las Vegas and more )  has released a 7.8 oz tube of  the super emollient hand cream.

Kiehl's prez Chris Salgardo and LifeRiders

100 % of the profits from the sale of this up to 25,000 will benefit amfAR.

This tube will last long , right into Autumn when the cool winds come along to parch our hands  and  can even be passed to the guys since it's very ungirly looking.

Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve  Jumbo Size is $ 28.50
