Orchid and Sugar Frost, Caviar Stick Eye Colour

I’m a true fan of Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colour. These longwearing eye shades apply like a thick eye pencil, making it easy to apply to a broad area (like all over the lid) or with more precision (as a highlight over a dark eye pencil). [Read more…]

MAC In Extreme Dimension Lash

mac in extreme dimension lash review

In Extreme Dimension Lash, MAC

It’s pretty rare for me to be critical of MAC product, but the recently released In Extreme Dimension Lash did not impress me.

The product description boasts volume, curl and length. Upon opening the box, I was prepared to be dazzled. I LOVE the creative curves of the tube, and I’m also generally a fan of spiky applicators like the one MAC utilized for this formula. This design tends to separate lashes, and deliver excellent coverage. [Read more…]

Night Blooming Swatch: MAC Taste Temptation Collection 2012

Remember those near-neon pinks that were so popular in the Spring?  This shade is the more sophisticated, evening version of those pinks.  The undertone is a cool blue, and the shade is vivid without being fluorescent.  Were you planning to wear a classic red?  This is a great alternative!

Retail price is $15.  This shade is already sold out online, so be on the prowl at a local MAC counter!

Self Portrait 3, NARS Andy Warhol Eyeshadow

If you’re planning a makeup collection to honor the memory of Andy Warhol, it goes without saying that the itself must be art.  I knew NARS had succeeded in creating art because it nearly killed me to sully the Self Portrait 3 NARS Andy Warhol Eyeshadow palette in order to write this review!

As part of the Andy Warhol Collection recently launched by NARS, Andy Warhol’s “Self Portrait” from 1967 has been recreated in makeup form. [Read more…]

Trend Alert: Teal Eyes

Teal Eyes, Iris Apfel for MAC

This recent photo of Iris Apfel for the Iris Apfel for MAC collection has me mesmerized. 

I can hope that I will age as gracefully and glamourously as Iris, but chances are slim that I’ll be puttering around draped in fur and baubles.  I’ll admit that I’m more of a jeans and t-shirt kind of a gal!  While Iris is a style queen, what has me truly hypnotized is her EYES.  In the MAC photo of Iris, they look positively teal.  [Read more…]
