Hang In There Baby: New Stila Kitten Products Coming This Fall!

Posted on by daneen in Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, Lipgloss | Leave a comment

hang in there kitty Hang In There Baby: New Stila Kitten Products Coming This Fall!I don’t know what took me so long to hop on the Stila Kitten bandwagon. But now that I’m all aboard, I’m gonna rock it ’til the wheels fall off.

When Stila introduced the original pearlized Kitten eye shadow in 1997, girls everywhere scooped up the universally flattering pink champagne shade. And now I know why. Just a light dusting of its rose gold goodness on lids instantly makes peepers pop.

And now that I’ve worked myself into a feline frenzy, I’ve got my claws out and I’m ready to pounce on Stila’s Smitten With Kitten collection, coming this fall.

Last month, I had an opportunity to preview these new kitten incarnations, and I’m positively purring for…

Stila+Kitten+Smudge+Pot Hang In There Baby: New Stila Kitten Products Coming This Fall!

Stila Kitten Smudge Pot, $20
The proprietary combination of pearls used to create Kitten are blended into a new Smudge Pot resulting in shimmering champagne. Wear it as an eye shadow primer, a shadow, liner or even a cheek and brow bone highlighter. Like a kitty cat stuck up in a tree, once this product sets, it ain’t goin’ nowhere; it’s smudge-proof, water resistant, long-wearing and simply illuminating, day and night!

Stila Kitten Lip Glaze, $22
The iconic gloss gets infused with the iconic shade, for a smile that looks sprinkled with stardust. Wear it alone for a sophisticated shine or over lipstick for a dazzling effect. The long-lasting, non-sticky formula is enriched with vitamins A, C and E to moisturize and smooth without feathering.

Stila+Black+Cat+Smudge+Pot Hang In There Baby: New Stila Kitten Products Coming This Fall!

Stila Black Cat Smudge Pot, $20
Forget about the superstition when this black cat crosses your path. Like a little black dress and a flute of champagne, this black gel liner is infused with an unexpected blend of Kitten shimmer and can be used for lining the lashes or blending on the lids. It’s smudge-resistant, precise, modern and darkly lustrous. This product brings totally brings me back to 1990, when a young, badass Janet (Miss Jackson, if you’re nasty) sang:

Black cat, nine lives
Short days, long nights
Livin’ on the edge
Not afraid to die

Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection: Greige

Posted on by daneen in Eye Liner, Eye Shadow, Lips, Lipstick | Leave a comment

Armani+Fall+2009+beauty Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection: Greige

The new fall dress code for Giorgio Armani is “Greige.” Subtle but distinct tones accentuate a deep smoky eye contrasted with a fresh, luminous complexion and a muted, but intense lip color.

Armani+Eye+Shadow+Duo Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection: Greige

Manta Ray Eye Duo Palettes, $38
The star product of the season is the eye duo palette, which is dressed with an exotic Manta Ray pattern. Inspired by the precious and luxurious materials used in Giorgio Armani fashion accessories, the palettes offer a beautiful selection of color harmonies inspired by nature. The collection features subtle hues that offer a new take on the timeless color “Greige,” create by Giorgio Armani. The rich filtered eye tones, presented in a matte Greige compact, give depth and mystery to the eyes with subtle contours and highlights.

n° 1 – charcoal and Greige: the ultimate eye shadow combination for this season’s smoky eye
n° 2 – deep ocean blue and intense ocean green
n° 3 – pale lilac grey and luminous fuchsia
n° 4 – light blue stone and sandy beige
n° 5 – shimmering lilac pearl and pale green pearl

Armani+Liquid+Silk+Eyeliner+1 Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection: Greige Armani+Liquid+Silk+Eyeliner+2 Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection: Greige

Liquid Silk Eye Liner n° 1 and n° 2, $30
Armani Liquid Silk Eye Liners in matte charcoal grey or midnight metallic blue contrast the softer Greige tones with a smooth high precision stroke. The formula, which contains microdispersed waxes and micro-fil™ polymer, boosts the deep intense color and ensures a long-lasting, quick-drying application.

ARMANISILK Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection: Greige

Armani Silk Lipstick n°92, $25
This season’s must-have Armani lipstick accentuates the natural lip color, keeping the focus on the eyes. The grey-blue tones in this soft plum lipstick add intensity to the lip without giving a dark contrast, the new alternative to beige. The Armani Silk lipstick formula dresses the lips with a hydrating and silky veil. Specific oils allow the shade to reveal intense and radiant color, resulting in a luminous blush on the lips.

The “Greige” Eye Look by Linda Cantello: “Eye shadow is about shading. Rather than adding shadows, these muted tones contour and define, accentuating the eye and the pupil; the focus is actually on the eye itself. My favorite is the Greige and charcoal duo shade palette, but the pale lilac grey and fuchsia offer a really beautiful pop of color.”

Application Tips:
* Use the Greige shade to contour the eye by sweeping the shadow along the crease of the eye. Follow by sweeping the shade under the lower lash line and over the upper lash line. Use charcoal to add intensity.

* A second option is to sweep the charcoal shadow over the whole lid and use the Greige to blend. For added intensity, apply midnight blue eyeliner along the upper lid lash line.

The Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall 2009 Collection is available for a limited time online at giorgioarmanibeauty.com and at selected fine department stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Bloomingdales.

NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Posted on by daneen in Eye Shadow, Lipstick, Nail Polish | Leave a comment

nars+fall+2009 NARS Fall 2009 CollectionEvery season, NARS achieves the impossible…time and time again, they manage to craft collections in which every single product is a must have. Their newest collection is no exception…

Fall’s runways were dominated by two words: bold and feminine. Strong shouldered and form-hugging silhouettes, extreme heels and provocative thigh-high boots, and a color palette of classic hues turned up a notch to Technicolor volumes. These trends also illustrate the NARS Fall 2009 collection. “For this collection, I wanted to create something fragile and strong, and seductive but not aggressive,” said François Nars, Founder and Creative Director of NARS Cosmetics.

As inspiration for his artistic vision, Nars referenced both the coquettish innocence of Lolita, and the sophisticated sensuality of Catherine Deneuve in Belle du Jour to conjure a beauty formula that is “very sexy, but at the same time ultra-elegant.” The combination of strength and refinement has become a hallmark of NARS, and is particularly fitting this season as the brand
celebrates its 15th anniversary.

The collection includes:

NARS+Fast+Ride+Lipstick+ +Low+Resolution NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Fast Ride Lipstick, $24
This seemingly dark purple may intimidate, but swipe it across the lips and its true shade is revealed: a sheer mulberry. A color that falls somewhere between an intense plum wine stain, and a moody, deep violet.

NARS+Tokaido+Express+Nail+Polish+ +Low+Resolution NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Tokaido Express Nail Polish, $16
This new hue is a cult classic in the making. Named after Japan’s most heavily frequented high-speed rail route, this lacquer is an opulent blackened amethyst doused with ultra-fine gold dust particles.

NARS+Silk+Road+Duo+Eyeshadow+ +Low+Resolution NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Silk Road Duo Eyeshadow, $32
This new shade mirrors the hues from traditional damask fabrics. Classic meets edgy in this new duo — an icy pink is paired with a warm rose gold with golden flecks.

NARS+Brumes+Duo+Eyeshadow+ +Low+Resolution NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Brumes Duo Eyeshadow, $32
These new hues perfectly capture the moody shades of a cool twilight sky. Brumes pairs a velvety matte charcoal with a sparkling, blue state for a smoky eye that is both confident and serene.

NARS+Indian+Summer+Duo+Eyeshadow+ +Low+Resolution NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Indian Summer Duo Eyeshadow, $32
A typical Indian summer comes as a surprise, balmy sunshine meets brisk fall. Swipe the summery, frosted champagne shimmer up to the brow, and line the upper lid with the autumnal deep, matte mustard for a striking look, appropriate for every season.

NARS+Mekong+Single+Eyeshadow+ +Low+Resolution NARS Fall 2009 Collection

Mekong Single Eyeshadow, $22
This is the perfect addition to the NARS woman’s adventurous palette. The intense, blackened espresso hue scattered with rose gold is a study in contrasts. Applied liberty across the lid it exudes a sexy attitude, or applied lightly, a simple, fashion-forward sophistication.

The Fall 2009 collection is now available for purchase online.
