A Red Lipstick to Consider – Aloha by Lipstick Queen

L10079_Endless-Summer_Aloha-tatler-11dec14_pr_b_400x600Blog hopping today I came across a shade that looked intriguing. I’m going to have to stop by the Barney’s counter next time I’m in the area and check it out.

It’s moisturizing and adds the right amount of color for those breezy summer nights.

What about you guys, find new shades of our favorite hue?

Here’s to a happy summer!

Red Lipstick to Consider – Vesuvius Liquid Lipstick in Red by Lipstick Queen

503334472_product_1Reading the world-wide web today I realized it’s been a week since I posted and honestly there hasn’t been much news in the red lipstick front, unless you count the fact that red lips lost out at the Tony Awards, seems everyone that attended chose to wear nude. I’m speechless honestly.

In my musings I came across a liquid lipstick that shows promise, the application looks easy and the color looks gorgeous.

What do you guys think?



My New Favorite Lip Product – The Lip Enhancer by Zelens

Zelens Lip EnhancerZelens is one of the best skincare brands available today and recently they launched an anti-aging makeup collection that will allow us to continue with our skincare regimen 24/7.

I love my New Lip Enhancer, you can wear it alone for a hint of color or you can layer it underneath your favorite crimson.

I layered mine today and my results are picture perfect. My lips are enhanced, smooth and pouty.



Playing With Colour – MAKE COLOUR

Celeste-e-Verde-Palette_1_1000_WhiteI don’t know about you guys but I love playing with colour, layering, mixing and matching. A new brand I mentioned awhile ago is by MAKE.

The colours are bold, look-at-me colours that can be applied subtly or with dramatic flair.  Everything is in the wrist and your favorite makeup brushes, although I have been known to use my fingertips.

This palette is called Celeste e Verde, Blue & Green and the colours are sublime.  The pigments have long-wearing colour, they don’t come off until you take them off.

I can’t wait to try these with one of my various shades of crimson and guess what? If you forget to take your tried&true red, there is a red inside that not only compliments the shades but various skin tones. Plus, if you’re not in the mood for red there are other shades available.

Truly a collection of fiery brights and gorgeous earth tones.

I love discovering new blogs, especially those that share in the daily grind of life.

Emerson Fry herself isn’t just chic, but she designs her own clothes, just wish she had a shop in San Francisco,  I hate ordering shoes and sweaters online without trying them on.

However her clothes are affordable, maybe Barneys will carry her collections soon?


Red for the Holiday’s at Barneys New York

154105048_product_1Besides wearing crimson hues, I like anything in red, from shoes to jewelry and note books for jotting down things I don’t want to forget, okay I actually use my notes section on my phone for that, but I would still love a red address book or notebook.

We scoured the web for some interesting finds this holiday season, that actually can be purchased for ourselves at any time of the year, but of course those of us that love red already know that. So if you’re looking for a red pedicure, crimson pout, statement heals or a house warming gift, Barneys has it all.

502166771_product_1There are other objects de’ art too, not just items in our favorite hue, since we don’t need an excuse to wear it.

Let’s not forget that red comes in a variety of shades, from deep reds to orange reds and pink reds.

Why not give this holiday a  bit of color?

502667669_product_1These earrings by Irene Newworth are stunning, especially in person.

500461925_product_1I love carrying around a note book, especially from Smythson of Bond Street, one year my sister Wendy gave me a pink address book and another year I received a red passport holder, love it!

You can never go wrong with a red candle, especially in blood orange, one of my favorite scents and honestly I love it as a gelato and spritzer.


Here’s to a great holiday season!

These days I’ll try almost any red, seems I’ve been bored with my current rotations and jumped on the opportunity to apply this delectable hue of crimson.

Maraschino Cherry by Make is one of the new cutting-edge makeup brands at Barneys, plus at $25 a pop makes it an affordable luxury.

The silky smooth texture lasted all day, lips stayed hydrated and picture-pretty all afternoon.

There are various shades, I might just try pink or a nude next time I’m there…
