Limited Edition Maison Lancôme Blush is Parisian perfection

Some makeup is simply to pretty to use, and where I to buy this it would sit on the shelf, only to be taken out when other hardcore makeup fiends came by, to be stroked, cooed over and NEVER ever used (unless I got two). The Maison Lancome Blush is part of the Lancome 29 St. Honore collection. and will retail for $48.

Pacman Nail Art Tutorial

I’m a big fan of retro games and after a weekend of nostalgia at the arcade decided I was inspired. Here’s my tutorial on how to create a cool retro Pacman Nail Art look- you can see the monsters and Pacman evident above. You can change the colours if you like when you attempt this at home- I was trying to stay fairly true to the actual colours, but I reckon spicing it up might be fun. What do you think?


Products Used:

Eyeko Vintage Polish, Stargazer polish White and Black, Orly Snowcone, OPI Want Sunglasses, OPI Rumple Wiggins Continue reading

True Blood and Tarte collaborate for a limited edition vampire range

Not so long ago Twilight create a beauty range, so it’s not that ridic for True Blood to get it on the action. They have created a three piece range which consist of a blood red lip tint, a blood red cheek stain and a smokey looking palette.Tarte for True Blood Limited-Edition Natural Cheek Stain

I love the tongue in cheek description of this at Sephora: Have you spent eternity in search of an everlasting glow? Meet your maker. This sparkling red cheek stain blends on smooth and lasts from dawn to dusk and well into the night. One drop is all you need to create a crave-worthy natural luminescence for all skintones and types. Like all Tarte products, this lusty natural stain will do good things to youthanks to natural mineral pigments and fruit extracts.

My dream makeup desk: As seen at Lina Cameron’s!

Not so long ago I was interviewing a makeup artists for her tips on smokey eyes, when I stopped concentrating on her words of wisdom and starting getting major infatuation over her makeup desk. See, it was no ordinary makeup mirror/ desk combo, no it was a beautiful Hollywood style lightbulb popping mirror with places for brushes, powders et al- and it folded up into a wheelable trolley. Cue girly screaming and incessant off topic quizzing about the lush looking trolley.

Frustratingly I was told she bought it in East Asia and she didn’t know of any stockists. I found it recently online, and it still looks just as lovely. but also just as out of reach. It’s a pretty heavy case, so shipping would be more than it’s worth! Sob.

Still.. it might be worth it? What say you?
