My Two Reds


Nars-BesameOkay, I’ve been having a hard time putting down my Nars, but really like the New Besame Tango Red.  What to do, I ended up applying the Tango Red first and layering on top my Jungle Red by Nars.

I have to say that the results are pretty, and perhaps one day there will be a new selfie to show you guys how pretty it actually is.

What two shades do you mix?

The Perfect Summer Duo – Besame Cosmetics


BesameMy New Tango Red from Besame Cosmetics arrived yesterday and I love it. I also received the Apricot Rouge that doubles as a cheek and lip tint for that perfect sun-kissed look.

The plus side is that these hues work on all skin tones and add the right amount of color.

The perfect duo for those lazy days of summer.



Summer Cherry



Miranda Kerr always looks chic and pulled together, especially because she’s never without her crimson pout.

Last night Miranda stepped out in a bright juicy cherry lip and this makes me want to try lip gloss again, even though I know I won’t like it.

My Obsession with BB Creams – New Aqua BB by 3LAB

Makeup, Skincare

3LAB_AquaBBMy obsession with BB Cream continues and now I have a new compact to add to my rotations.

I’m big on using quality skincare and makeup, after all it comes into direct contact with my skin.

Also what’s not to love about a BB Cream formulated with anti-aging properties?

New Aqua BB glides on the skin, leaving behind silky skin for that perfect instagram selfie.


A Red Lipstick to Consider – Lip Maestro by Giorgio Armani

Beauty, Makeup

chinese lacquerI’ve been carrying around clipped ads I tore out of my current issue of Marie Claire, why? Because I am dying to know what shade of Lip Maestro the model is wearing.

That’s the thing about ads, they don’t always tell you what shade is featured.


Hopefully when I make it down to the Armani counter at Saks the sales associate will know.

However, after starring at the shades online I think it might be Chinese Lacquer, but I could be wrong.

Does anyone know?

New CC Cream – “IT” Cosmetics

photoCan I just tell you guys that I am in CC Cream heaven.  Not only is the compact gorgeous, but the application is flawless.  The CC Cream just absorbs and blends into the skin, leaving it smooth and selfie ready.

I collect compacts now and will repeat myself, it’s not a bad thing to have several different foundations, compacts etc.

The only one beauty product you don’t want to open at the same time are multiple mascaras.  Why? Because they expire within three months.

This is one CC Cream that I just love!

Pretty In Pink – YSL Beaute Kiss & Blush

Beauty, Makeup

product-1I know, I know it’s pink, but isn’t it pretty? I saw this and fell head over heals over the color.

Now that I’ve seen it, I’m going to have to visit the YSL counter and investigate the rest of the shades.

Especially if I can wear it as a lip product. This shade would look pretty on my cheeks though.

She used a combination of Juara Skincare and Votre Vu cosmetics.

I’m loving Kerri’s classic beauty and that shade of crimson.

Tina applied French Kiss in Tatiana  by Votre Vu and doesn’t it look lovely?
