Before long I was eyeing the Spring/Summer Collection put out by MAC SENIOR ARTISTS simply called Makeup-Art Cosmetics. MAC recognizes that all of their artists are devoted to their craft and as innate as their gift of giving beauty might be they are just as passionate about sustaining the progression of their creative process as well.

So just the day before I remembered a friend of … Read More NARS:The Powerfall Master Class
Hello everyone! Here is the questionnaire that asks what would you do and how far would you go to acquire the most coveted luxury item or items in your life? What motivates you to shop and what gives shopping and things meaning in your life? Why do we (extravagant consumers) as much as I despise that term, do what we do? And why do … Read More The For The Love of Things Project
September 14,2016 I finally got this in! After weeks of wait-listing it on Dior’s site I couldn’t contain myself and ended up ordering from Nordstrom and then Beauty the Shop. The Dior Skyline limited edition collection beholds a range of plummy smoldering browns in the lip offerings and one nail lacquer (there is also a flesh tone lacquer #112 Minimal) and for the two limited edition … Read More DIOR:SKYLINE FALL 2016
You may have already heard about the wildly coveted Pat McGrath Labs cosmetic line. Well I’m here to shout about it too, because what well deserved beauty and fashion blogger wouldn’t. The new one to be on the lookout for and the latest installment is the Lip Kit in LUST 004. It debuts at the end of the month on August 30th.

Now it doesn’t take much to lure me into a lull of desperation when it comes to desiring a special item or two but lately I’ve had a pull in the direction of several ….and they all bear one similarity;they all come in a hue of rose gold. I guess this roller coaster all got started when I misjudged a step while coming … Read More MY OBSESSION WITH:ROSE GOLD
Hard Candy had a strong following back in the day and I remember helping to push the brand during it’s start up phase when I worked at Bloomingdales.

For now the collection of Smith and Cult … Read More SMITH AND CULT
