Pandora Boxx Debut Album

Hello, hello, hello and welcome to the latest Week in Drag! We are speeding to the finish of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars and we’ve got recaps and reviews as well as some fierce fashions.

Patrick Starrr has a new makeup collection (available at Sephora) and has tapped some of your favorite queens to show off the new makeup and create some glam looks. Joseph Shepherd catches up with one of the OG Drag Race judges and the season seven champion, Willam and Alaska play a game and Jaymes Mansfield works more of her magic with wigs. There’s lots to cover, so let’s bring it to the runway!

This week, the queens of All Stars brought their best celebrity impersonations to the stage for the “Snatch Game of Love” and brought an explosion of color to the runway with pop art inspired fashions. Trixie Mattel and Raja review the latest episode on “The Pit Stop.”

I didn’t want to post this yet! The tragedy of this last All Stars episode is that OG racer, former All Star and Drag U professor (and my all-time favorite queen) Pandora Boxx had to sashay away. She talks about the season and her ru-demption with Michelle Visage on “Whatcha Packin”?”

By the way, if you liked Pandora’s talent show song, “Ridiculous”, you’ll be happy to know that she is working on her very first album. Support the queen and knock her a tip on Kickstarter.

Bob the Drag Queen and Thorgy Thor take us back to last week’s drag anthem challenge and tropical runway looks on “Purse First Impressions.”

Raja and Raven “toot” and “boot” the hot tropic hits and misses on “Fashion Photo Ruview.”

Last week, the always perky, sometimes funky Jan was the queen who got the chop, much to the chagrin of many fans. Here she talks to US Weekly about her elimination and her experience on the show.

On the latest “Ruvealing the Look,” Jan recreates her “Blue Jean Baby” look.

Trixie Mattel gets a lot of PR makeup and I am so jealous. In this new video, she gets into her signature look with products from KVD Beauty, Jouer, Hello Kitty x Colourpop, Clueless x Hipdot, and more.

Speaking of makeup, Patrick Starrr has launched a new collection called One/Size (available at Sephora). In a series of videos released this week, some of your favorite Drag Race alums create inspired looks using the new product line. First off, season 8’s Laila McQueen gives us a soft glam look. Oh, how I love a bearded queen.

Raja uses One/Size to create a sizzling night out look and Latrice Royale uses the collection to serve up some “aftere five cocktail realness.”

My interview muse, Joseph Shepherd brings us not one but two episodes of his insightful web series, “Exposed” this week. First, he catches up with season seven winner (and Atlanta’s own) Violet Chachki.

If you wanted to know more about the early seasons of Drag Race, you’re in for a treat as Joseph interviews season one and two judge Merle Ginsberg. She has lived quite a life outside of the show, and she makes for a fascinating and engaging interview subject. If you love you’re her-story, don’t miss this interview.

Jaymes Mansfield is back with two amazing wig makeovers. First, she takes the world’s saddest-looking Dolly Parton knock-off wig and turns it into a fun hairdo.

And, if that wasn’t enough, she gave us a pin-up look, complete with victory rolls, made from some incredibly cheap wigs.

Rock M Sakura shows us what’s in her three different “drag emergency bags.” Find out what secrets are hidden in her “first day of school”,” 3-minute ramen”, and “messy queen” bags.

Treat your ears to the latest music from the queens. Violet Chachki and Allie X take us back to the days of VHS and local cable shows with their video for the song “Mistress Violet.”

Tina Burner is back with another cover that all of you theater nerds like me will love. Watch as she sings “Somewhere That’s Green” from Little Shop of Horrors.
