Make Up For Ever HD Blush

@PerilouslyPale said it best when she said that 2014 is year of the blush, and it is SO TRUE. This is the year that we’re getting cheek products in a big way. The new trend isn’t just on colour – it’s formula so innovative that blush blends easily and looks natural. If this is a […]

Polish Perfection – OPI Liquid Sand

I am totally obsessed with OPI’s Liquid Sand nail lacquers. These give a matte pebbly finish to the nails which is matte and so totally different from your usual nail look, and textured enough to be super interesting and fun to wear. If you’re into this as much as I am, you’ll want to check […]

Easy Summer Foundation from Dior

That’s right, ladies, you read foundation, not BB or CC or any other such cream.  I’m talking actual coverage, longer wear, and not too much worrying about skincare, because you’re going to apply sunscreen before foundation anyway, right?

This summer, we’re loving some of the polishes that are part of the Pierre Hardy for Nars collection.  The iconic shoe designer has made his name because of his prints, and the entire makeup collection harkens back to that.  Thus, the nail polishes come in pairs and are sold in boxes like shoes.  The pairs […]

Cara Delvigne at the MET Ball

We’re still going through all the amazing looks at the MET ball, and can’t get over this one.  Burberry makeup did the look on Cara Delvigne, and the major smoky eye is beyond.  We would use a primer and smudge a waterproof eye pencil all over to get a similar effect (surprisingly simple to do, […]

Makeup Inspiration: Katie Holmes at the MET Ball

We love how Katie Holmes took her normally chic everyday makeup look and made it appropriate for the MET Ball. The look was, of course, courtesy of Genevieve Herr for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, who says “Katie’s MET Gala makeup was a departure from her natural look. We took the traditional punk look of black eyes […]

L’Oreal Telescopic Shocking Extensions Mascara

L’Oreal Telescopic mascara is basically Lancome Hypnose’s less well known cousin. The wands aren’t the same, but they’re similar enough that if you’ve used one, you can get used to the other. Both brushes actually have flat sides that hug lashes and deposit product on them.  The spindly comb follows the flat side and helps […]

“Mistake-Proof No Mirror Lipstick”

… is what Bobbi Brown is calling their new Sheer Lip Color, and if the guru of women’s cosmetics says it, then it must be true. Summer colour should be absolutely easy to apply and easy to wear given that most of us are much busier, and the Sheer Lip Color is a great product […]
