Christian Louboutin Classic Red Rouge Nail Polish!

For those of you that don't know, I love shoes. Christian Louboutins have always been the epitome of sexy in my opinion. I am lucky to own a pair and although very sexy, they are not very comfortable.... Sigh. Now Mr. Louboutin is releasing a range of nail polishes and I cannot contain my excitement! I can now wear Loubi's everyday! Now all we need is a Loubi red lipstick to match. (hint hint, Christian!)

Each nail polish retails for $50, which for those of you always wanting a piece of Christian's collection this is your chance at just a fraction of the cost of a pair of shoes or a handbag. The packaging is all the class and seduction you would expect from the Louboutin brand in a lusty little bottle.

Red rouge is available for preorder now at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Neiman Marcus. You can also be notified when it is available from Sephora as well. They will be ready to ship out on August 6th and the rest of the 30 shades will be launched on August 31st. (That taupe gray looks gorgeous!)

Make Up For Ever Artist Eyeshadows - Fall 2014

O.M.G. That is what I said when I saw the selection of new eyeshadows Make Up For Ever has on Sephora's website. They have released a total of 210 (yes 210!) new shades! MUFE has seriously added every color of the rainbow and every texture and finish too. Textures available range from matte to diamond. They retail at $21 an eyeshadow. I plan on ordering way more than a few to swatch and play with. I think there are probably 50 already on my wish list. Swoon!

a very small sample of the shades available!

These are eyeshadow pans only so you can add them to your zpalettes and create your own on the go kit or MUFE now has 1-3 spot eyeshadow cases you can add to your order for $1.00 each. I personally like to have larger palettes but the smaller ones are definitely a great option for travel.

Sephora's website states the shadows have a gel powder consistency. That sounds really interesting and I love a creamy eyeshadow!

Check them out here.

What do you guys think?

Friday Favorite!

Tarte's BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer with SPF 30 (wew a mouthful!) is a new found favorite of mine. I love the mousse-like texture and the silky feeling on my face. It has build able coverage so it can be worn as more of a BB/tinted moisturizer cream but also doubles as a primer underneath your everyday foundation.

While away on vacation I found myself wearing this by itself with just my Mac Mineralize Natural powder on top to finish. It gave a "my skin but better" finish and I didn't feel like I was wearing any makeup.

Tarte states that it is also a skin treatment (like BB creams usually are or are supposed to be) and I do think it has been helping my skin look clearer. If you have been looking for a BB cream this is definitely a great option.

I don't think it lasts 12 hours but I think it does have some staying power especially underneath foundation or a powder. I can see this being a great product in the winter time as well as summer because the texture is light but also moisturizing.

I'm not sure if someone with oily skin will like this or not because it can feel slippery but those of you with normal/combo to dry skin will love it.

Here is the breakdown from Sephora's website:

What it is:
An innovative BB treatment with multiple skincare and makeup benefits in one eco-chic tube. 

What it does:
- This state-of-the-art BB cream offers numerous benefits for smooth, youthful-looking skin 
- Features SPF 30 sun protection 
- Comes in five shades 

Indulge your skin with this powerful multitasker that works as a primer, moisturizer, light foundation, antiaging treatment, and sunscreen to give you a youthful-looking glow. Worn alone or as the perfect base for makeup, this 12-hour, age-defying, oil-free primer offers light-to-medium, buildable coverage that helps even skintone and other skin imperfections while diffusing light to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. The creamy, silky formula goes on smooth and blends easily, leaving you with a natural-looking, flawless finish with a broad-spectrum, chemical-free SPF 30 that offers ideal protection from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. 

What else you need to know:
Beauty Balms or BB Creams were originally developed as a perfect post-procedure cream used to treat, hydrate, prime, protect, and camouflage the skin. Great for all skin types including those with sensitive skin, these versatile “five-in-one” formulas are designed to do it all: treat with high levels of active skincare ingredients; moisturize and smooth dehydrated skin; prime and perfect skin’s surface; camouflage and color correct the skintone; and protect skin from the sun with SPF. They can be used as a last step for their skincare benefits or used on their own as an instant beautifier.

This product is powered by tripleB complex, a proprietary blend of natural diamond dust, plants, and lipoamino acids that diffuses light and minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores while improving the appearance of skin luminosity. 

Research results:
In a consumer panel study:
- 100% of women immediately saw an improvement in the surface texture of skin for smoother makeup application 
- 97% of women saw and felt smoother, softer skin 
- 91% of women said fine lines appeared minimized 
- 94% of women said pores appeared less visible after 4 weeks

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipsticks - Fall 2014

I am super excited to order these lipsticks and get some photos up for you guys. But first I wanted to let you know they exist! :)

Kat Von D is famous for her matte multicolored pout and these lipsticks look so fabulous. Introducing her Studded Kiss Lipstick Collection...

There are total of 30 (yes 30!) shades that are now included in her permanent Sephora collection. The shades range from a pale nude to a moody black. There are some really interesting shades too like the lilac below and then a shimmering deep navy called Poe. The product description states a 10 hour wear time which is pretty impressive. The matte formulas generally last longer anyway so I will be interested to see how these last.

Multiple textures are available in this collection including shimmer and of course matte. I tend to be drawn towards the matte texture but the shade Adora (a metallic candy apple red) looks so gorgeous. It is a repackaged version of her limited edition holiday lipstick from a previous year and I am so glad she decided to make it permanent.

She had previously added additional colors to her liquid lipsticks which had me super excited. I hope she adds some of these colors to that formulation too since they are so different. Here is a link to them too in case your are interested in checking them out... Kat's Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick.

So what are your thoughts on her new lipsticks? Do you like her formula?
