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.

Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss: Like Hot Butter On Your Breakfast Toast

Posted on by daneen in Lipgloss | Leave a comment

Chanel+Aqualumiere+Gloss Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss: Like Hot Butter On Your Breakfast ToastI’ve been on a bit of a lipgloss bender, lately. Just yesterday, I applied Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss seven times. No, I didn’t have somewhere speical to go. And no, I wasn’t attempting to seduce Mr. Spoiled Pretty (who, btw, wouldn’t notice my lipgloss unless it was smeared across my face).

I’m all OCD about Aqualumiere because it looks luxurious, fells sublime (no stickiness!), and applies like hot butter on breakfast toast. Despite being a lipgloss, it packs quite a punch in the pigment department…and its brush has got to be the softest lipgloss applicator ever.

Check out my Aqualumiere swatches from Chanel’s new Côte d’Azur collection. They’ve all been placed in heavy rotation, because I can’t decide which one is my favorite.

mac+instant+gold Kim Kardashian Convinces Me To Buy Another MAC LipglossI need another MAC lipgloss like I need a hole in the head.

But after Kim Kardashian dished that MAC Lustreglass in Instant Gold is one of her all-time faves, you know I had to go out and add one more to my collection.

So on Friday, during a spontaneous trip to my local MAC store, I picked up Instant Gold and Cremestick Pearl Liner in Mother Pearl.

Recessionista’s Fabu-less Pick of the Week: Flirt Cosmetics GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip Lacquer

Posted on by daneen in Fabuless Pick of the Week, Lipgloss | Leave a comment

Flirt+Glamourazzi+Lip+Gloss Recessionista’s Fabu less Pick of the Week: Flirt Cosmetics GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip LacquerSo, okay, I don’t want to be a traitor to Stila and all, but I recently discovered a satisfying stand-in for the cult classic Lip Glaze – just in case there is some truth to the bankruptcy rumors.

With a click of the pen, Flirt Cosmetics’ GLAMOURAZZI Extreme Lip Lacquer delivers high-watt shine with a non-sticky formula. And the crème brûlée fragrance is a sweet surprise.

Originally $12, it’s currently on sale for $10.20, which is less than half the price of its prestige counterpart.

GLAMOURAZZI is available in 15 shades (I’m partial to Red Hottie) and is sold exclusively at Kohls.

Get Naked: Troy Jensen’s Favorite Nude Lip Colors

kim+kardashian+nude+lips Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip Colors
It’s no secret that I absolutely adore and envy Kim Kardashian’s makeup. If there was a Face Off type situation, and I had to swap mugs with someone, Kim would be high on my list…primarily because I cannot get enough of the way she wears a nude lip. Aside from Angelina, nobody does it better.

nars+belle+de+jour+and+giza Get Naked: Troy Jensens Favorite Nude Lip ColorsSo Troy Jensen‘s recent post about his favorite nude lip colors was a godsend for a Kim copycat like me. In the photo above, Troy used NARS Belle Du Jour Lipstick topped with NARS Giza Lip Gloss.

“The colors blend beautifully with her creamy golden skin tone,” Troy says. “The art of creating the perfect nude is finding one that works with your skin tone and also the shape of your lips. Fuller lips can get away with the palest nude shades while thinner lips will need a bit more color or lip liner for definition. Whatever shade you choose, be sure to pair it with a beautiful smoky eye.”

My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in Fulfilled

 My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in Fulfilled

When it comes to a MAC products, my sister and I are drawn to them like moths to a flame. So when we visited the Willow Grove Mall a few days ago with Mama Spoiled Pretty, it was no surprise that we couldn’t escape without a visit to the MAC counter at Bloomingdale’s. What was supposed to be swift stopover ended up being a half-hour spending spree.

While Lauren let the makeup artist paint her eyes in hues of blue, I made a beeline for the lip glosses – swatching at least a dozen on my inner arm. And my low-maintenance mom looked on in awe, wondering how she birthed such product-addicted daughters. When Lauren’s makeover was complete, she joined me in playing with the glosses. I asked for her opinion of MAC Plushglass in Fulfilled, which I was seriously considering adding to my collection. “It’s sick,” she exclaimed. So I decided to buy it…and so did she.

 My Latest MAC Acquisition: Plushglass in FulfilledThough it’s described as ‘full-blush creamy pink,’ I think that cantaloupe-y cream pink would be more accurate. As you can see in the photo, it wears super sheer – and inflates the lips without the burning sting that accompanies many lip plumpers.

I love this formula and adore this shade. And while my lip gloss collection is incalculable, I definitely feel like a void has been filled by Fulfilled. It will be my go-to non-shimmery gloss when I’m playing up my eyes, but I still want a come-hither kisser.
