I am a huge fan of the L'Oreal Infallible Matte Lipsticks. The color seen at right is INTENSE and should not be worn before exfoliating and hydrating lips. This shade is "Aphrodite's Kiss". I just couldn't resist the classical reference. Also, if you haven't tried any of the colorful mascaras currently popping up in time for spring, you're missing out. YSL made a HUGE deal out of it last year and Tom Ford's NYFW make up for this year will also supposedly feature mascara in brilliant shades of blue and green. L'Oreal Manga mascara comes in turquoise (as above), purple and royal blue.
Then there's this tiny tube of bliss by Burt's Bees. It legitimately smells like both blueberry and rich dark chocolate- very much worth paying $3 for!
If you haven't yet tried Rimmel's Provocalips long wear lip colors, you should. Surprisingly, the formula does not dry out your lips as most long lasting lip formulas have done in the past. I grabbed this shade, "Little Minx", at Walgreens. These are really well pigmented and come with a moisturizing gloss (which I am wearing).
This week I experimented with new ways to wear my hair. I saw a look similar to this worn by Miley Cyrus- let's all quirk our eyebrows- a couple of years ago and thought it was a really sophisticated way to do an "updo" for short hair. My hair isn't quite long enough yet, but it still seemed to work. Oh Miley, this was your glamourpunk phase... please don't wear anything too crazy to New York Fashion Week...
