Vice Vixen

Epic blogging fail, I TOTALLY MOVED

So as your humble narrator is now blogging-as-work, I went to renew my custom domain name. And lo, some dumbass domain-name clearinghouse has registered my site.


Fear not, oh my five readers. Vice Vixen has gotten a makeover. And now, please find me at :

This fabulous blush stick eluded me for years. I read the reviews on Makeup Alleyget it now before they discontinue it! and then nothing. I scoured every WnW display I passed and saw no version of it. Then, like magic, it reappeared everywhere. I’d heard Coy was the perfect pink blush and was skeptical- blush was never an item I could find in drugstores. But they were right.

Coy is a creamy, highly pigmented, pure pink color that makes you look sweet, alive, and not overly made up. I use it on my lips to provide a neutral base for gloss. It’s been less than a week and this item is elevated to grail status on my vanity table. Don’t try to contour with it (or anything)- just apply a little to the apples of your cheeks and pat it out until it looks natural. Finish with a light dusting of powder if desired. I will never go back to prestige blush again, unless WnW discontinues it. Now, if they’d only resurrect Drac’s Drool dumb name, perfect berry wash for lips.

While away, I rented the visually stunning and very engaging Mirrormask.  I highly recommend it, but that’s beside the point.  My dreams were haunted by this eerie version of Close To You by the Carpenters.  I woke up and mentioned to my bunk mate it was stuck in my head, to which he replied, Cheers, babe- now it’s stuck in mine!  But the really creepy part?  It reminded my of my daughter!  Anyway, finally as spooky as it deserves to be…

I’ve never used cake mascara, but I spotted this adorable wee compact in Lucky and I feel that now I need to.  This totally looks like it would have been in Bettie’s makeup kit.  Very pin-up.  And I’ve had Paula Dorf brushes for years- they still look and feel brand new.

Just say “no!” to titty gloss!

When I came of age sexually, pretty much all you had to do to impress a guy sexually was, uh, shag him.  We didn’t have brazilians or bleaching or now, for fuck’s sake, titty gloss.  It was enough to entice the menfolk that we had tits.  And now this.

Enter Agent Provocateur’s TitillationI beseech you, my sisters, to nip this trend in the bud and do not submit to any more grooming, glossing, or hair yanking of anything that can be covered by a bikini.  Unless you really want to, for some strange reason.  Remember when all we had to worry about with getting naked was granny panties?  Bring those days back!

Cheeky blush…

I can just tell this blush gives you that perfect innocent/sexy look.  Blush is so underrated and misappropriated.  A nice, apples of the cheek flush is really the only kind of look you need for every day, and it really makes you look awake and cute.  I’m srsly dying to try this, and it’s from Anthropologie, which generally indicates rockingness.

I may smoke, but I don’t have to be a lady, do I?

I don’t want to look horribly affected when I smoke- however, I do tend to rock lip gloss on a near daily basis.  Or a matte red lip that only looks good dark.  So I really actually kind of need a cigarette holder to engage in the uphill daily battle of looking as little less like who-did-it-and-ran in this filthy, hellish, daily grindy island-city.  I lovelovelove these tiny, cute, not-too-obvious rhinestone cigarette holders.*  They’re not too pricey, and think of what you’ll save in overall lippy consumption.
