Tarte for True Blood LipSurgence Lip Tint – You don’t have to be a fan of the wildly popular TV show (though you really should be) to appreciate the just-bitten effects of this vampy red lip stain.
Make Up For Ever Fluo Night – Remember when parties weren’t complete without black lights? Relive those days with this transparent pigment powder that glows under UV bulbs.
Sally Hansen Nail Effects Halloween Collection – First the ingenious, ten-day strips gave new meaning to press-on nails. Now they come in Halloween appropriate patterns like skull-and-bones and spider webs.
