The Very Definition of a Cheap Date

As our devoted readers know, we in the Manolosphere are vigorously opposed to bigotry of any kind, including the particular, peculiar branch known as sexism. Naturally, then, it is with mixed feelings that we present the following; it is both too bizarre to ignore and by its very nature completely sexist:

Sperm for tickets

The purpose of this website was to test market interest through a pilot scheme.
Applications for donation packs have far exceed the expectations.
Our clients are calling a halt to the invitation to apply for packs,
and will review the results of the scheme to decide on how to proceed.

All submissions sent to the website are fully protected under Irish privacy regulations,
and will not be released to ANY third party.

Well, presumably eventually they WILL be released to a third party, or what’s the whole point?

Does this company know their market or, like, what?

Hot Mama Tip

Blue skies ahead! Or, at least until it stops snowing and raining and whatnot.

Blue is one of the hottest colors in makeup this spring.

Unfortunately, it tends to make many women flash back to the ultra-bright blue eyeshadow that Barbie sported oh so many years ago.

But what has changed is that the new pigments, while still retaining color, are more subtle and much more wearable than ye olde neon aqua of yore.  

I have always seen makeup as a way to stay on trend in a fairly cheap way without breaking the bank.  So, experiment a little!  Navy nail polish, a soft blue eye shadow, or a pop of blue eyeliner can complement almost any shade of skin or eye color.   Spring is a good time to try something new, and why not do it with some blue?

Here are some of the best blues out there.


OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue! is perfect for those toes!

Dior Dior Vernis Laquer in Poison Blue

Dior Vernis Laquer in Poison Blue is based on Dior’s popular Poison Blue perfume, and it is beeyotiful.

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deviant is one of the best out there.  The blue is intense without screaming “Hi, I’m blue eyeliner!” and it goes on like buttah.  Great for blue or brown eyes.

Urban Decay Eye Shadows  in (from right to left) Goddess, Strip, and Mary Jane.  Trust me, they look much more intense in the picture than they will on your eyes.  Easy to blend and very soft in color, there is a slight shimmer to these shadows, just so you know.
