Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Fafi Amb01 s Fafi Contest Winner RevealedGood Monday, beauties. I know you’re anxious for me to announce the winner of the Fafi Giveaway. I stayed up late last night so that you could enjoy the Oscars Red Carpet recap with your morning cup of caffeine; which means I’m exhausted, and all out of clever things to write. So I’m just going to get to it.

Congratulations to Kelly Skahan!

She is the winner of $175 worth of cosmetics from MAC’s newest color collection, Fafi! Yay for Kelly!!!

I know what you’re thinking (if your name isn’t Kelly Skahan). You’re thinking, “What about me? I wanted me some Fafi. When is it my turn?”

I realize that many of you were really looking forward to this one. But unfortunately, I only had so many products to give away. Trust me, I love giving away these prizes as much as you love winning them – so don’t get discouraged. I’m on a roll, y’all. And I’m going to keep the contests coming so that everyone has a chance to be a winner. And in between the contests, I’ll try to squeeze in some actual beauty reviews and articles.

Fafi Giveaway

Posted on by daneen in Contest, Giveaway | 12 Comments

Fafi Amb01 s Fafi GiveawayLast week, I announced the arrival of MAC’s new color collection inspired by the graphic expression of French graffiti artist Fafi. Since then, I’ve actually had an opportunity to play around with the products a little bit.

In my opinion, the two standouts of the collection are the paint pots and lip colors. The brightness of the colors are tempered by the textures – so you can be garish, if that’s the look you’re going for; but you can also apply with a lighter touch, and the shades are totally appropriate for day or the office.

Some other bloggers have criticized the packaging – instead of printing the Fafinettes directly on the lip glosses and lipstick tubes, the artwork is printed on stickers, which are wrapped around the packaging. If packaging is très important to you, then I suppose you could find fault. But the quality of the cosmetics is what matters most to me, and I was not disappointed.

Here are some swatches of the Paint Pots, Lip Glass, and Lipstick from the Fafi color collection (click on photos to enlarge).

fafi+013 Fafi Giveaway
Top row: Nice Vice, Rollickin’, Perky
Bottom row: Cash Flow, Girl Friendly, Layin’ Low

fafi+026 Fafi Giveaway
Lip Glaze (l to r): Sugar Trance, Squeeze It, Cult Fave, Totally It
Lipstick (l to r): High Top, Fun ‘N’ Sexy, Utterly Frivolous, Not So Innocent, Flash-N-Dash, Strawbaby

Although I tried my best to capture the fabulosity that is Fafi, my camera can only do so much. I encourage you to visit your local MAC store or counter and experiment with the products.

fafi+005 Fafi GiveawayAnd because I love you all so much – and want to thank you for visiting me regularly – I’m hosting another giveaway. One of you will win $175 worth of Fafi for free!!! See that pic to the left? That could be yours!

Here’s what you’ll get:

Lipglass
Cult Fave (blue mid-tone pink with white pearl – frost)
Squeeze It (brassy plum – frost)
Sugar Trance (creamy soft pink with white and rainbow pearl – frost)

Lipstick
Not So Innocent (sheer tan with pink and peach pearl – glaze)

Eye Kohl
