Christian Louboutin Beaute Lip Color

Earlier this summer the latest addition to the Christian Louboutin Beaute line-up was announced, and today it landed on the shelves (well, the virtual ones, at least). Starting today you can get your paws on the new lipsticks. The price is guaranteed to induce sticker-shock ($90 a pop) but these are without a doubt the most unique lipstick design I’ve ever seen. There are 36(!) shades split into three formulas: Silky Satin – Moisturizing and…

Zoya Focus & Flair Swatches

The last two days I’ve walked outside and considered going back in for a jacket. In my mind, that’s good enough to start thinking about fall. Seasonal changes mean seasonal releases, and this time I have not one but TWO fall collections to show you. Well, three if you count the Zoya ones as separate. Here ya are: Zoya Flair In the Flair set you get six intense colors, split between metals and bright jewel…

Skindinavia Primer and Finishing Spray Review

  Let’s chitchat about the weather for a sec, ok? The only way I can sum up my feelings about it lately is – ugh. When I moved to Kentucky I thought surely, surely the weather can’t be as miserable as what I was used to growing up in Texas. As it turns out, I was wrong. It rarely goes over 100 degrees here, but what I didn’t account for is the humidity. The temperature is…

Becca Mineral Blush Lantana Review

This was my ‘splurge’ from my recent Sephora haul – most of the other things I got were just repurchases of staple products, but I felt like I needed a pop of color in there. I’m pretty sure Becca Lantana qualifies. Jump to the summary Packaging: The compact for the Becca blushes ticks all the right boxes: small, thin, solid clasp and no unnecessary brush. I also really like the matte rubberized casing – it’s…

According to their instagram, they’ll also launch at 10 stores on September 15th: Lenox Square Perimeter Cumberland Jackson Lakeside Louisiana Mall of Millenia Orlando Towson Chestnut St. Philadelphia Brooklyn Culver City So far I haven’t seen any information…

Spotlight: Dior

It’s that time again! Meaning, of course, that time where I dig out everything I own of one brand and then tell you about it. Up today: I. Honestly it’s not a brand I go out and buy every single thing of, but I’ve accumulated quite a few pieces to talk about here. Mascara I’ve probably tried more mascaras from Dior than any other brand, just because they give the miniature samples out like they’re…

Sephora Brand Game - Burberry

I wouldn’t normally make a whole post about a store carrying new brands (yawn) but I’m making an exception in this case. Earlier today I was puttering around the internet, as you do on Sundays. The image above was in my email, and it stopped me in my tracks. WHAT? I’ve been waiting for this day for years. I halfway thought I was dreaming, but I got a confirmation for the order I placed within about two…
