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. I CONTINUE READING

New At Sephora – DuWop Prime Venom Lip Plumping Balm

Posted on by daneen in Lip Balm, Lip Plumper, Lips | 1 Comment

primevenom New At Sephora – DuWop Prime Venom Lip Plumping Balm
Typical lip plumpers are a little one note – don’t ya think? A bee stung mouth covered in gooey gloss screams, “These aren’t my real lips!” Luckily, DuWop has the answered your plump pout prayers.

Prime Venom is a matte finish plumping lip balm infused with the Lip Venom formula that also works as a lip primer. This matte balm leaves conditions lips while acting as a primer to help lipsticks go on smoother and last longer – as well as plumping the lips for a matte finish pout. It also flushes the lips with natural color, so that you don’t have to wear lipstick at all if you choose not to.

Prime Venom contains macadamia nut oil, prized for its long lasting, moisturizing properties and the now famous blend of essential oils including cinnamon, ginger, and wintergreen that put plumpers on the map.

Prime Venom is available exclusively at Sephora.

The Bluest Eye

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

This past weekend, I traveled to my parents’ house to spend some quality with the fam. My sister, who is still at home on ‘winter break’ from college (remember those days?) was rocking the most amazing eye makeup eva – and I couldn’t stop staring. Finally, I asked what she was wearing – and she produced a brand-new Sephora bag with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Deviant and Sephora Waterproof Mascara in Blue 02.

bluest+eye2 The Bluest EyeShe was gracious enough to let me test them out; and I was so amazed by how beautifully bright my eyes looked that – at 7:30pm – I ran out to Sephora to buy my own.

Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Pencil is a creamy liner that effortlessly glides over your lid. The color is blendable for the first 30 seconds, then dries to a long-lasting finish that lasts all day and all night. Available in twelve shades, these pencils can be used for a hint of color – or more liberally, for a theatrical effect.

Sephora Waterproof Mascara is perfect for mascara lovers who hate smudges and smears. It’s a little on the dry side, but I can’t deny how it makes my eyes POP when paired with the aforementioned liner. Plus, it’s only $10 – so you can justify buying vibrant turquoise mascara.
