Zit Blaster

This is the coolest thing EVER! It literally blasts the zits right off your face overnight. Ok fine, it really just makes them much smaller and practically invisible, but when it comes to zits that's pretty amazing. All you have to do is dab a small amount all over the pimple, go to sleep, wake up and look gorgeous! This is especially perfect for those zits that are white in the middle and red on the sides. Ewwwwwwwww!

Honey Pot

Here's a potted lip gloss (Hot Wired, $24) from Nars that makes me hungry everytime I look at it. It's just so creamy and inviting kinda like a pot of honey. It goes on smoothly when applied with a lip brush and doesn't bleed through, which is a problem I tend to have with my lip makeup. Great, now I'm hungry again.

Mineral Mascara

The mineral makeup craze doesn't look like it's gonna let up anytime soon. It used to be the type of makeup you'd only hear about on late-night infomercials, but over the past two years or so mineral makeup has gone mainstream. Even drugstore brands like Maybelline have added a mineral collection (btw, Maybelline's mineral face powders are really good).

Just when you thought the mineral stuff was always gonna be in loose powder form, a makeup company steps in to prove you wrong. For example, Kiehl's new Mineral Mascara (I'm not exactly sure how they did it, but it sounds intriguing). It will officially be available in April, retailing for about $20. So, make sure you look out for it especially if you're a mascara junkie like me.

Chanel Stamp

I just love it when makeup products come with cute little gimmicks. Just when I think I couldn't love makeup any more, they come up with some adorable idea like stamping the brand's logo onto the beauty product; like this Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick, $30, for example. It's already a totally badass red, but that CHANEL stamp just seals the deal. I'm gonna go out and buy about a dozen.
