June/July 2019 Beauty Product Faves

Hey everyone, I haven’t done a beauty and makeup product favorite video in awhile and I miss doing them so I thought it would be fun to do a new summer product review and fave video on some of my fabulous new favorites for summer 2019 items, and possible all year round. Hope you enjoy my video and remember I have Patreon on my Youtube Channel now.

Upcoming products I will be reviewing soon!

This morning, I’m leaving for Boston but when I return, these are the products I plan on trying out. I’ve already tried the glosses which I’m packing in my makeup bag and I’ll probably try out the Tokyo Milk “French Marie Antoinette” lip balm and maybe the Elf primer but there’s no way I’m bringing my new Anastasia of Beverly Hills, “Alyssa Edwards” palette because I’d been waiting for it and it arrived last night and I will not risk it cracking in my bag. I’m sure I’ll have more to show and review besides what’s in the picture here. See you when I return!

Pins and Brooches

Good Morning fabulous friends and followers. I’m up early to get ready for a fun day at Universal Studios Hollywood. I’m going with my husband of course and two of my best friends and darling couple, Kirsty and Jordan Giuliani. I’ve written about them before as well as working with Jordan in front of and behind the camera lens.

Since I’m going to a theme park today, I’m bringing one of my small purses with me that is decorated with some of my fun brooches and pins and wanted to show them off. Since we talk a lot about fashion, style, and adding your own personal touches and uniqueness to your looks, I thought it was fitting to show off some of my pins from my collections. Brooches and pins are a real easy way to personalize your stuff and add a little extra pizazz to your outfit. I love putting them on coats, handbags (the non-expensive handbags of course), top and bottom pieces, and more. If you are a creative person, you can make your own and find supplies at places like Michael’s or if you don’t want to do that, you can find really cool pins at many places as well as online. I love collecting them from concerts, events, (such as drag con) amusement parks, etc. I love finding vintage inspired brooches and also collecting fancier ones with Swarovski crystals and jewels. (Since I’ll be at a theme park all day, I think I’ll leave my more rare and expensive pieces at home.) I think that pins and brooches are extra special also when they are handmade.

   They are just a fun and easy way to spice up your wardrobe and life. Here are the ones that I’m wearing today with my very appropriate Classic Hollywood Universal Monster cross body purse. I also included where I got this group of pins as well so you can check them out.

Drag Queen Merchandise

   I definitely wanted to do a post just on my goodies that I got at Drag Con from my that was separate from my main article on my experience at the convention. Here they are and I hope you enjoy! I thought this was a fun post to do!

    First drag merchandise I got is my fabulous Alyssa Edwards pin with her tongue pop and one of her famous sayings, “BackRolls.” I had to have that pin and it makes me laugh every time I see it. IMG_6130

I loved meeting Michelle Visage as you read in my previous post on my time at Drag Con and this is the ring she gave me that she actually wore on RuPaul’s Drag Race! I love you Michelle and thank you! 

I bought these two fans, one that says “Oh Honey” and the other one says, “Thwoorp.” I got these two for twenty five bucks which was a fantastic deal. I chose these two particular fans to represent Trixie Mattel and Katya on their youtube show because Trixie is known for saying “Oh Honey,” and Katya is known for her hot fan flipping and saying “Thwoorp.”

Also for my Katya merchandise since she is one of my all time favorite queens, here are my tank top and shorts which I was so excited to find!

As you know Ben Dela Creme is my burlesque drag sister and I love her and her whole style. Here are my merchandise from her. It’s a shirt that I love wearing, a candle that was handmade, and of course a sparkly gorgeous autographed photo!IMG_5525

Here are my merch from the fabulous Neon DETOX! The shirt I had to have because it’s a horror glam Bride of Frankenstein LIMITED EDITION shirt. I love wearing it with my Kreepsville666 glow in the dark Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein leggings. The tote bag cracked me and I had to have it!

My mom actually ordered this for me before I attended which tells you that she is the coolest mom. I met Alaska briefly and bought one of her shirts for one of my best friends but I thought my little drag queen POP Alaska doll was the cutest!IMG_6129

I also bought one of my best friends up north a Shangela shirt since she’s her top fave queen of my friend. The quotes on the shirt is iconic from season 3 of Rupaul’s Drag Race.IMG_6148

Here’s my stunningly gorgeous autographed photo from Chad Michaels who if you read my first post on my experience at Drag Con, you’ll know what I think of her. The most professional queen I’ve ever met. Thank you Chad aka Cher! IMG_6142

Last but not least, here’s my autographed photo from on of my favorite queens, the famous and funny Bianca Del Rio. Glad I got to meet her, especially after seeing one of her shows a month before and here is my copy of her new book which is hysterical and I definitely recommend reading.

Thank you for reading and checking out all my drag queen merchandise. Like I said above, I thought this would be a fun post!

   Please post your likes and comments below.

   Especially let me know who your favorite drag queens are! I’m curious. Lets compare and chat about our favorite fabulous queens! 

XOXO CARLIE

 

 

 

 

 

My Top Three Favorite Drag Queens

logo-LOGO_RUPAULSDRAGRACE_SEASON_005-Full-Image_GalleryBackground-en-US-1483993179535._RI_SX940_

Since I just did a small post mentioning my love for RuPaul and RuPaul’s Drag Race, I decided to post my top three drag queens that were all on Drag Race. They also all extremely intelligent and do wonderful things for the LGBT community! I recommend checking all of them out!

1. ALYSSA EDWARDS- She is the queen and I love everything about her. She is Southern Glamour at it’s fullest. If you don’t know much about her, (how can you not?) definitely look her up. Also make sure to watch her show, “Alyssa’s Secret.”

2. LAGANGA ESTRANJA- She cracks me up. She is probably best known for her signature “DEATH DROP” and her love for enjoying the “SPECIAL GREEN LEAVES.” I love how she is a big advocate for medical marijuana and even created her own strain. Laganga is amazing and a very talented choreographer, like her mama, Alyssa Edwards.

3. BIANCA DEL RIO- Oh my god, this drag queen is a “CLOWN” said by her own self and actually won top drag queen on Drag Queen. Her commentary is hilarious, especially when she talks about other queens but she does it with love, most of the time. haha! Check her out!
