Beauty Blog Lingo

After chatting with some good friends this weekend (Thanks Marie!), it was brought to my attention that I do have readers out there…HI EVERYONE!!! Haha! She also told me that she had no idea what UDPP was, which is a very valid question since I use it in nearly every post! So I thought that I’d put up a list of some abbreviations that are used in beauty blogs. Here are a few of the important ones…IMO ;-)

  • BBR – refers to the MAC collection Brunette, Blond, Redhead
  • BNIB – Brand New In Box
  • CK – Calvin Klein
  • e/s – Eyeshadow
  • EOTD – Eyes of the Day
  • FL or f/l – Fluidline
  • FOTD – Face of the Day
  • HG – Holy Grail
  • HTH – Hope This/That Helps
  • IMHO – In My Honest Opinion
  • IMO – In My Opinion
  • IRL – In Real Life
  • l/g – Lipgloss or Lipglass
  • l/l – Lipliner
  • l/s – Lipstick
  • MA – Makeup Artist or MAC Artist
  • MLBB – My Lips But Better
  • MUA – MakeUp Artist
  • MUFE – Makeup Forever
  • NIB – New In Box
  • NOTD – Nails of the Day
  • OTT – Over the Top
  • PP – Paint Pot
  • UDPP – Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • UDPPS – Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin
  • VG – Viva Glam
  • WOC – Women of Color

If you’re a beauty blog junkie like me (or occasionally read some) and can think of some more, please add them in the comments. Thanks so much! HTH ;-)
