NARS Summer 2009 Collection

nars+summer+2009 NARS Summer 2009 Collection
“The look for the Summer 2009 collection is sophisticated, but colorful,” says Francois Nars, founder and creative director of NARS cosmetics. That translates to glowing, sun-kissed skin, shimmering peachy-hued lips and high-drama eyes in deep, shimmering tones of metallic-flecked topaz or sparkling azure.

Whether your vision of perfect summer conjures up images of Morocco’s kaleidoscopic bazaars, the pristine Art Deco structures of Ocean Drive or the endless white sand beaches and cerulean waters of a Caribbean island, this season’s vivid yet versatile color palette is the perfect complement.

tropic NARS Summer 2009 CollectionTropic Single Eyeshadow, $22
For the latest eye shadow, there was only one blue François Nars had in mind. “The tropics are always inspiring for me,” says Nars. This lush, silver-flecked teal is a precise image of the ocean’s reflective, rolling waves.

scorching sun NARS Summer 2009 CollectionScorching Sun Duo Eyeshadow, $32
The glazed apricot and radiant orange duo, is designed “to imitate the effect of the burning sun,” according to Nars. The sun-drenched colors allow for surprising wearability. The pair can be blended together to form a rich, burnt orange, or worn in tandem.

irresistiblement NARS Summer 2009 Collection
Irresistiblement Bronzing Powder, $30
Nothing evokes the feeling of summertime quite like bronzed skin. The newest shade, a rich golden terracotta, offers a flattering faux glow when dusted across the areas of the face where the actual sun would hit.

Falbala Lipstick, $24
On the lips, this high-shine bronzy rose lipstick has a sweet, insouciant quality about it.

Outsider Lipstick, $24
This is definitely not your grandmother’s coral. This deeper, glistening variety is a modern take on a time-honored classic.

Belize Lip Gloss, $24
The pale pink mauve sprinkled with specks of gold simulates the color of a Central American sunset and gives nude lips a sultry boost.

Tonga Lipliner Pencil, $20
A creamy, long-wearing lip pencil in a shade of pink amber plays dual roles. Use it traditionally, to outline lips and prevent lipstick from feathering; or color the entire lip with the moisture-rich pencil.

Adelita Nail Polish, $16
This shimmering pearlescent shade of pink, is simultaneously sweet and saucy, the ideal embodiment of feminine strength.

 NARS Summer 2009 Collection
The Summer 2009 collection is currently available at narscosmetics.com.

christian+siriano+for+victorias+secret This Fall, Victoria’s Secret Will Be Fierce, Fabulous and Flawless

VS+makeup+at+Christian+Siriano+Fall+2009+3 This Fall, Victoria’s Secret Will Be Fierce, Fabulous and FlawlessProject Runway’s fourth season winner, Christian Siriano, has partnered with Victoria’s Secret to produce a limited-edition collection of makeup, slated for release in late summer.

The line, inspired by his Fall 2009 collection, includes: a black kajal eyeliner ($12), a bronzer/highlighter trio ($24), three neutral lipglosses ($14), five eye shadows ($14), a face brush ($32) and ruffled cosmetic bag ($16).

One of the eye shadows, a black pigment with flecks of gold, is called ‘Gilded Fierce.’ Come Fall, I’m all about that shade – even if it makes me look a hot tranny mess.

Mark your calendars…the Christian Siriano for VS Makeup collection hits stores in August 2009.

So Glad I Could Help!

jc1 So Glad I Could Help!Today, Sarah G wrote, thanking me for posting about my J. Crew outlet find. Sarah writes:

Hi Daneen! I just wanted to say thank you so, so much for posting about the steal you got on that adorable little J Crew number! I live in Portland, OR, so I wasn’t sure if the inventory or sales would be the same, but I had to check. So I jumped in my car and drove the hour to the good outlet mall and lo and behold… they had it! And it was 30% off! They had it in black, navy and aqua blue. I got both black and aqua. The aqua will make a gorge cover up come swim season! Thank you again for posting… You totally made my day!!!

So glad I could help, Sarah!

Love Lucky Magazine

lucky+cover+may+2009 Love Lucky MagazineI have issues. Too many issues. Magazine issues, that is. I collect magazines like Angelina acquires orphans, so anytime I see a glossy new fashion mag on the newsstand, it’s coming home with me.

On my lunch break, I picked up the May issue of Lucky – one of my favorites. Lucky has fab content, but what I love the most is the nifty stickers…so that I can tag the items I wanna blow my cash on later.

I’m also a big fan of Lucky’s informative and snarkaliciously entertaining blog, The Beauty Department.
