Where to Buy: Breath Palette, Beauty Buffet

Breath Palette is an ingenious idea – 30 different flavors of toothpaste so that you never get bored of the same old minty taste. The way it works is that you don’t really taste what the flavor is. You smell it. The taste in your mouth is still a nice fresh mint but only after […]

Day 4 of L’Oreal Fashion Week – GSUS

GSUS is actually a European retail brand. Their collection was targeted more at a junior customer – say teenagers or those in their 20’s. The models were all young and the look was cute and fresh. The skin was fresh and the girls had flushed cheeks. You can see in the pictures that this show […]

Day 4 of L’Oreal Fashion Week – Saniya Khan

The Saniya Khan collection was clearly for an older customer so the look was accordingly toned down and sophisticated. The team used a variety of earth tones for some subtle shading with eyeliner applied under and on top of the eyes to give the lashes a lush full look. The lip was kept very natural […]
