Holiday Inspired Looks

My sister and I decided to create some fun holiday inspired looks.

The one I did is called "Glacier Blue Eyes," using Sea and Sky Mineralized Eyeshadow by MAC, along with the Glitter, Reflects Transparent Teal from the new Chill Collection by MAC.

Take a look at my Glacier Blue Eyes:

And my sister Adrienne created a new look called "Purple Ribbon." She accomplished this look with the Heatherette Trio 2, using the color Cassette (a deep purple), along with the Glitter, Reflects Purple Duo, from the new Metal Urge Collection, all by MAC.

Here is Purple Ribbon:

Have a Happy Holiday Season Everyone!

Are you Hot or Cold this Holiday Season?

Mac has two polar opposite collections out for the holiday season-- Monogram vs. Chill. To tell you the truth, it's hard to choose a favorite.

The monogram collection comes in an elegant rich gold tone packaging, with M·A·C monogrammed plaque of red dégradé vs. the Chill collection which comes in the classic black M·A·C packaging.

Both collections have something for everyone.

However, the Monogram collection complements warmer skin tones such as olive, or tan.
While the Chill collection is great for cooler skin tones, and anyone ready to pull off a winter wonderland/ice-y look.

So, this season you can go hot or cold. Light snowflake lips of Naked Frost...Or provocative rich creamy colors, when passions flare. Its up to you. :)

Happy Holidays!

It appears to be press on eye shadow that is professionally blended and color coordinated for an amazing new look.

Anastasia is all about Brows

Are your brows a bit sparse? Well you can fill them in with an amazing brow pencil called "Perfect Brow Pencil" by Anastasia. The pencil fills in sparse brows so naturally that you can't detect the pencil lines at all! It applies so very smoothly because of its velvety texture. The pencil comes in six different shades: ash blonde, blonde, strawburn, medium ash, brunette, and ultimate brown. After filling in your brows, you can groom them with the brow brush found on the other end of the pencil. It retails $22.00 and can be found online at Anastasia.net and Sephora locations.

Baby Phat's New Charming Couture

Baby Phat now offers a fine jewelry boutique! The fashion jewelry ranges from $32-$100. The price range might be a bit of a shock for some, but you get what you pay for--quality. Unlike the older line of fashion jewelry, this new line of jewelry uses crystal and it's not soO logo driven. I love Baby Phat, but Kimora Lee Simmons can sometimes give us logo overload. This jewelry seems to be very "Juicy Couture" inspired. You can pre-order at BabyPhat.com, and get your jewels just in time for back to school.

Take a look at some of the jewelry...
Retail: $85

Retail: $65

Retail: $45

I love it!

Rihanna Haircut

Disturbia -

Hi everyone its Adrienne!
Are you thinking of cutting your hair super short like Rihanna? Well, I am. And for sometime even my sister was thinking about it. My sister Caralyn likes long hair, most people do, but personally I am tired of it. I want to change, I no longer want long, I want short hair like Rihanna.

I have these second thoughts... Will it suit my face? What will I do when I get tired of it short? How long will it take to grow back if I don't like it? I have a feeling that a lot of people ask these questions when they cut their hair drastically. This is my answer to you: Consult your hair stylist about the style you would like to cut your hair. Maybe the "
Rihanna" (as it is now called) is not the choice for you, maybe you would look better with a bob and bangs or layers. When cutting your hair always consider:

1. Face shape
2. Hair texture
3. Condition of your hair

Another thing don't cut it right away because you might change your mind. For myself I don't think I am going to cut it just yet, but eventually will. ^_^.

Talking about Rihanna I recently saw her new video for "Disturbia" personally I love the song. It has a catchy beat and makes me want to get up and dance when nobodies watching. The video itself is not all that great. Its kinda creepy and scary. Her blond wig and contacts are not very flattering. Its also very dark and Gothic. Which is not a bad thing but is it really her style? I don't know but good song anyways. ^_^.

Urban Decay UDPP

Hey everybody I recently bought this UDPP at Sephora called Urban Decay. I give it 4.5 stars. I love this product. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was because when applying the shadow/ pigment to your eyelids it doesn't show as much as another product. Also, because the container is not a cylinder it doesn't let you get all of the product. By the time you finish it there is still so much left in the container. (Take a look at the pic above) The pros: I love the fact that it goes onto your lids smoothly and does not feel to thick on your lids. It is also great that it dries clear so it will go well with any skin tone, and you won't have the hassal of trying to get a color close to complement your complextion. Yey!! Go and get this product it rocks!

Heatherette Trio

Hey everybody.
I am excited about my new Heatherette Trio at M.A.C.! I got trio 2 and I am in love!! It is so cute and beautifully put together. The presentation is great and the front is not a sticker so it will never wear away. But sorry guys... I bought it last minute at Blooming dales. You might be able to get yours there or at Nordstrom, Macy's or www.maccosmetics.com (they only have trio 1). But they will not have it at a the M.A.C. store. Good luck finding it! Take a look at the pictures above.
