I absolutely, without a doubt, ridiculously love the new layout of Scandalous Beauty. I can’t even express my excitement. Since December 2008 marks the 3 year anniversary of SB, it was time that we grew up and got a big girl look!!! Divalicious Designs created the layout for us. I found her on a story on Clumps of Mascara. The next thing I know, I’m sending over layout ideas and images!!! If you are looking for a new look for your blog, myspace account or anything else for that matter, definitely head on over to Divalicious!!!
As a beauty blogger, and MAC head, I feel that it is my civil duty to alert you about all that MAC is doing at the moment, as well as the near future. But I can’t lie, much of this stuff bores me. So much so that I didn’t post about it before it came out. Honestly, I don’t get all riled up about crazy colors anymore, but I definitely don’t like seeing a whole lot of lackluster products. Suite Array is exactly what I am talking about. These little shadows are probably a pretty good pick for beginners, or those who want something to have in their makeup bag for touch-ups. But honestly, I’m not even going to the counter to play with these. Eh, maybe I’m just biased. EYE SHADOW SUITE
