Strange Beauty Products

My friend, B, and I are thinking about hosting a Girls’ Night In, Spa Extravaganza for Steph’s 30th in April. One of B’s nurse friends is a massage therapist on the side and is willing to set up shop at B’s house for mini-massages. Woo hoo!

I suggested purchasing a bunch of new and interesting beauty products for all of the guests to sample. I’m always looking at stuff online and in stores but I never actually put the items in my cart. I either don’t have the time or I don’t have the patience to figure out new beauty products. Steph’s party might be the perfect time to try out some fun stuff. I know that most of the people who will attend have the same dilemma I do.

I’ve always wanted to try some of the spray on products- self-tanner, foundation, etc. So I think I might buy a few of these for other party-goers to try as well. Last night, I began my search at Sephora. Sephora has all sorts of great options. I got overwhelmed and didn’t end up purchasing anything.

My googling did bring me to some offbeat products as well…

I almost blew green tea out of my nose when I saw the Betty coloring kits:

It’s for “your hair down there”! OMG! And for St. Patrick’s day they have green. Call me a prude but I don’t think I’d ever have a need for this.

For those who just don’t have time to fiddle with multiple make up applicators, I found Color-on!

It’s an oval of eye shadow that does both eyes. They come in a pack of 10 or 20. This looks like it would go horribly wrong for me. I’d probably not get them on straight or only get half of it to come off of the applicator. Then I’d look like a crazed lunatic. It’s not really the look I’m going for…

Head massage anyone:

It looks like a medieval torture device to me.

Rare hair oil for those who wish to grow long hair.

I don’t know about you but my hair is oily enough without me dumping rare hair oil on my scalp.

Finally, there’s this:

Nothing says “girly” like Tub O’ Butter! I want to slather myself in this and eat pork rinds, don’t you?!
