Beauty Sightings: RuPaul's Drag Race, season 5

Does this really need an introduction? Season 5 of RuPaul's Drag Race had some of my all-time favorite queens, including local** favorite Alaska Thunderfuck.

Cripes, I adore her.

The beauty sightings in this season were surprisingly ripe for the picking, although I have to admit that the sponsor brand, Color Evolution, is a bit of an unknown to me. As always, if you can identify a product, please leave a comment!

A blatantly obvious tube of Maybelline Great Lash. This is a super-popular drag mascara because it never dries out and it doesn't gunk up false lashes. Also, Doritos!

Jinx is using Kryolan eyebrow wax. You can also see some Ru Glue, and I think the white pot you can see is Dermablend. Thoughts?

A vanity shot.

The yellow bottle in the middle is a got2be hair product--it's probably the same bottle you see in the next picture. Also, love Coco's face here!

Duct tape and post-it notes abound all over the labels in Drag Race. But the picture, color, and bottle shape give this away as the got2be Glued Blasting Freeze Spray spray.

Jinx using a Sephora palette.

You can see several jars of Ben Nye powder here, most likely Neutral Set or Translucent. The pink hairspray bottle is Suave.

An Aussie product, Neutrogena makeup wipes, and a can of Coke. I think the nail polishes might be China Glaze, but I can't tell.

Ah, the brand blurring: for when duct tape ain't enough! Anybody recognize the products here?

I am LIVING for that neon pink!

Drag Race, honey boo boo child...ain't nobody here dumb enough to miss a bottle of AquaNet.

While you should never use makeup wipes as your only makeup removal/cleansing method, they're good for getting off really thick layers of paint. This makes them a drag queen staple.

Alyssa Edwards and Detox sparkly red China Glaze nail polishes.

10 points to anyone who can peg this concealer!

Pretty sure this is Kryolan TV Paint Stick.

Tons o' bottles and tubes!

** Alaska has moved to Los Angeles and is therefore, technically, not local anymore. But she's from Erie and she was a player in the Pittsburgh drag scene.


  1. I love your drag queen posts - I am obsessed with them too!

    1. Thanks! I've been involved with the drag world for far too long. :)
