Affilier Échantillon

I’ve been on the hunt for my “holy grail” foundation, and because of all the raves it receives, I knew that Armani Lasting Silk Foundation HAD to be on the list.

Haul: The search for THE Lancôme lipstick

Affilier Acheté

Lancôme lipstick I know this may come as a shock to some of you, but I can be a bit obsessive when it comes to lipstick—especially when it comes to finding the right shade of lipstick. Which is how I wound up the owner of, count them, FOUR different Lancôme lipsticks, in the two-monthlong search for a specific one.

Review: Illamasqua Neutral Palette

Affilier Acheté

I first ran across the gorgeous bronze-y, antique gold shade in the Illamasqua Neutral Palette in this post, and I pretty much decided then and there that it needed to be in my life. Then I got lured in by the Chanel Charming Palette (damn you, Lisa Eldridge [just kidding, I love you, call me]), and it drove all thoughts of the Illamasqua palette out of my head. Well, after returning the Chanel palette, I wandered over to the Illamasqua counter and righted this terrible wrong. And now this goodness is in my life.

Chanel Holiday Eyeshadow Palette – Charmed, I’m not

Affilier Acheté

I wanted to slip this one in while it was still 2013 to avoid any negativity so early in the new year. 😉 So, I fell on my head a few weeks ago and ordered the Chanel Ombres Matelassées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette in Charming on my Bloomingdale’s card (if you know how much it cost, you know why I say “fell on my head”). I blame Lisa Eldridge and her using the greyish purple color on the far right in this tutorial.

Bright lights, big city

I love New York all the time, but especially when the sun starts to go down. I think it just turns from wonderful to magical.

I was a complete idiot, because I’m so used to Instagramming photos like this from my phone (are you following me?), I completely forgot that I had my good camera with me. Oh well, a different time. Excuse the quality!

The search for the perfect red continues

Je suis tellement, tellement désolé, mais je suis trop fatigué pour écrire aujourd’hui à propos de ma mini virée en voiture. Demain ou dimanche, je l’espère. Aujourd’hui, je vais écrire au sujet de la poursuite de ma recherche pour le rouge à lèvres rouge parfait.

I know I promised photos and the tale of my mini road trip to Shelter Island, but I’m just too tired. I saw Frightened Rabbit last night, for the conclusion of Scotland Week in New York, and I got home super late. (I have some video on my Instagram, if you’re interested!) There was just no time to go through all the photos. Tomorrow or Sunday, I hope.

In the meantime, I had the chance yesterday before the show to go into Bloomingdales in SoHo and try on some more red lipsticks I’ve read about recently. I am on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick, and I will leave no stone unturned!

First up is the legendary Cherry Lush by Tom Ford. This color has cult status, and is purported to be the perfect red. Of course I had to try it on!

P1000041I look so unhappy. I’m not, I promise!
