Leaked photos send Gaga to Twitter to officially break the news

Keywords: lady gaga, twitter, fame

 

No secret is safe with the internet around these days-  Dailymail reports that Lady Gaga was forced to take to Twitter and officially announce/release the packaging and bottling  of her new perfume, Fame.   A canadian fashion editor leaked a photo of the perfume bottle yesterday, setting off an enormous spark of interest in the perfume.   Gaga took matters into her own hands with the above tweet,  followed up by a couple of pictures filling us in on her newest release.

 

 

The perfume is reportedly set to launch in September, and is described as ’Tears of Belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea, with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot, and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops.’… riiiiiight.    That pretty much does nothing for me haha, so we’ll have to wait for the new scent to hit stores and give it a try for ourselves.

 

 

That is, unless, maybe Lady Gaga would be kind enough to send a bottle our way to test it out?  hint hint




You’ll want to check these out

Keyword: Violent Lips, tiger, lipstick, tattoo

A long, long time ago…in a land far, far away…well, not really- I posted an article about this cool new product called Violent Lips. This caught my eye while browsing the internet and I have been following them on Facebook ever since.  They seem to add new designs pretty often and are growing in popularity every day. Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Kim Kardashian have all been spotted wearing these temporary lip tattoos.

Their most recent release was the Tiger Lip. Roar!!!

 

And my personal favorite:

Denim Jean!? What?!  Come on, who doesn’t love a good pair of jeans?  Now you can have your lips to match :)

 

Since I wrote my last article, I did get the chance to test them out myself.  They are not easy to use.  Cutting them down to size and forming them to your lips is frustrating and difficult. And when you do finally get them on, your lips feel a little funny.  But boy do they last!  Those babies aren’t going ANYWHERE!!  So check them out!  You get 3 in a pack for $15. Not a bad deal to have some fun with your girlfriends.  Could also make for a fun kiddie make-up party!




I can’t stop staring

Keyword: Johnny Depp, Elijah Wood


Kind of creepy, huh? In fact he looks more like Elijah Wood than himself in this picture.  Just stumbled upon this and thought I would share.  Enjoy :)

 




Fresh Step are you for real???

 

Keywords: kitty litter, bacon, fresh step, video

 

Is this for real???? The video seems like a spoof and the website seems legit… I’m on the fence whether this is genius or idiotic.  Either way it’s funny and you should end your work week by watching it!  Enjoy your weekend friends ~ See ya’ll on Monday!!




Jeremy Lin does it again, assist the Knicks to their third win in a row

Keywords: jeremy lin, knicks, tyson chandler, john wall, wizards, steve novak

Michael Scott once said, fool me once, strike one. Fool me twice…..strike three. Well I have officially struck out on Jeremy Lin. I thought it was just a lucky game at first. Then I figured he was just on a little hot streak, everybody gets one. But after watching him dish the ball tonight, I must say that Lin is as real as the food at a Chinese restaurant is actually chicken. Actually scratch that, Jeremy Lin is as good as his high school average, 100% awesome.

Lin had a career high 10 assist tonight. But it was the way he dished the ball that really caught my eye. Through the smallest holes Lin was able to skip the ball through and avoid all of the Wizards players. Steve Novak had 19 points off of 5 threes. Novak was often found wide open after great passes from Lin. Lin has some of the best eyes I have seen from a Knicks point guard all season. He would have had even more points of Tyson Chandler wasn’t getting hacked and sent to the free throw line after every Lin pass.

The Knicks went on to win this game by a final of 107-93. John Wall had 29 points for the Wiz while Chandler led the Knicks with 25. Lin had 23 points and 4 rebounds to go along with the 10 assist. The Knickerbockers were without Melo who is out with a strained groin and Amar’e who is in Florida mourning the loss of his brother. The lack of the two Knicks superstars only makes the Lin show even more impressive.




Are we THAT lazy?

 

Keyword: L’Oreal, one sweep, eyeshadow

As a make-up artist I find this to be a little silly. I know there are women out there who are clueless when it comes to make-up, but is this really the solution? Are we THAT lazy that we can’t take the time to learn how to sweep three shades of shadow across our lids separately? I picked up this product recently when shopping for a make-up event I was hosting for my dedicated clients. When I saw it, I just had to try it. In my mind I was thinking “this will never work!”  Sure enough, I got it home and handed it to my sister who is not quite as handy when it comes to make-up as myself…that’s being kind (love you!)  Was the product terrible?….ehhh I can’t say “terrible”, but it’s far from worth it! Not everyone’s eye shape and lid are the same so how do you expect this to be universal? The bottom, darkest shade should cover most of the lid and this looks more like liner. The highlight should be just under the brow…on my sister it landed more in the crease! The shadow alone is fine. If you used an eye shadow brush to apply each layer yourself, the pigments are pretty decent, but the gimmick just doesn’t work. Sorry L’Oreal…nice try!
