Staff Picks: Clarissa Hamlin Shares Her Weekly Faves




With Halloween right around the corner, I couldn't help but hit up a few drugstores to find some spooktacular products. I found great nail art kits, temporary lip tattoos and glitter eyeliners that jumped out at me. Click through my creepy-themed cosmetics if you dare, and let me know what you think.

The Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner is a buildable, water-based formula that creates a dramatic look. Using the easy-to-use fine-tipped brush, I apply the superfine glitter in Metalhead, an $18 dark purple shade. There are some great long-wearing, quick-drying hues to layer together for a more intense, bewitching eye. Throw in the fact that the product also contains peach, carrot and cucumber extract for conditioning my skin and I can't get enough!

My second pick is the Kiss Pro Disney Villains Nail Art Kits, available for $10 now exclusively at Walgreens. These four limited-edition sets are inspired by Maleficient, Cruella De Vil, Evil Queen and Ursela. I copped the Cruella nails for a very De Vil-ish style, with crimson and bright red glitter to add to my terrifying talons. Talk about killer nail art!

And my bag of tricks also contains Violent Lips Temporary Tattoos, an outrageous, colorful mix of appliques that are perfect for any costume. Priced at $10, the tattoos come in several prints including my personal faves, the bluish-purple Galaxy and multicolored Candy Dots that create an out-of-this-world look for up to eight hours. Remember to measure and cut the applique to fit your lips; then peel the plastic film before applying and sealing the product with a moist cotton ball to your pout. What fun final touches to your fantastic outfit!
