Celebrity Fashion Lust – Golden Globes 2015 Edition

I know, I know, that post never materialized, but you didn’t think I’d leave you hanging on the dresses?! Here’s my roundup of the celebrity fashion from the Golden Globes 2015.

From talking with people on Facebook last night, I know that some of my faves were not that popular, but, hey, this is my blog. 😉

Let’s start with the good:

Celebrity Fashion Golden Globes 2015 To be honest, I didn’t even know who Julia Goldani Telles was, but I just knew that I ADORED the color of her dress. I felt like, overall, there was a lot of blahness on the red carpet, and this Carmen Marc Valvo grabbed me immediately. (more…)

Celebrity Fashion Lust #12 – Emma Stone in Valentino

Speaking of Celebrity Fashion Lust

I saw part of Emma Stone’s Good Morning America interview wearing this, and kind of died a little inside. It’s perfection. And she has the high-heeled version of the shoes I want. Just in a different color. I want Valentino to out fit me in my life, too!

Celebrity Fashion Lust – Oscars Edition

You guys, I might be getting old, but I was pretty underwhelmed by Oscar fashion this year! Even the dresses that everyone else loved, even the ones that I liked, I wasn’t blown away by anything. Not really.

I really missed color! And even the dresses in color, I found the designs a bit “meh.” Sigh.

Good thing the show was hilarious enough to cure my disappointment!

Celebrity Fashion Lust #11 – Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi

The dress Amy Adams wore to the Screen Actors Guild Awards was everything her Golden Globes dress was not, for me.

What do you think of this one?

Celebrity Fashion Lust: Golden Globes Edition

Awards season is my favorite! Obviously, not for the awards themselves or the speeches, but THE DRESSES.

So here is a roundup of my favorites from this Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, in no particular order.

Sandra Bullock in Prabal Gurung

Apparently I’m in the minority, but I LOVED this gown. Loved how interesting it was and the colors. And I thought she looked freaking stunning. Her makeup was flawless. I want every bit of it.

Celebrity Fashion Lust #10 – Léa Seydoux in Miu Miu

Like everyone else, I’ve fallen for Léa Seydoux. Now that she’s collaborating with Miu Miu, I’m even more smitten.

Review: Surratt Autographique Liner

Affilier Acheté

Confession time. On one of my visits to Barneys New York, I caved and finally purchased something I’d been wanting for a while. Not the $75-dollar lipstick. This one was more affordable.

I’ve been lusting after celebrity makeup artist Troy Surratt‘s new makeup line, Surratt, since what seems like forever (but is actually just mid-October). In particular, even more than the  Automatique Lip Crayon in Alluring, which is supposed to be a look-good-on-everyone red, I wanted to try the Autographique Liner.

I was fascinated by the description of how it was inspired by calligraphy pens and contains a similar capillary system. An important point to me was the point, which is fine and made of nylon, not felt. I really do love the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, but the felt tip does tend to lose its sharp tip and get fuzzy, which causes the straight line you’re trying to draw to have a ragged top edge.

Also, the Autographique Liner is refillable. So your initial purchase may be $42, which is a little high, but when you use it up, you’re only buying an $18-dollar refill.

It's a thing of beauty, really

Sorry, I know the aperture got fuzzy on the tip, but you can still see how sharp it is.

I have a sort-of dysfunction when doing a cat eye/flick because of my downward-turning eyes (the same reason I am loving my new eyelash curler). I have followed all the tutorials for how to know when and where to do the flick, and every time, my liner comes out differently. I just can’t judge the same.

So having my eyeliner tip get fuzzy and ruin my line adds an extra challenge that I don’t need. I was hoping the Autographique Liner would solve at least that problem, and boy has it.

I took another photo of the tip so that you could get some sense of how fine-tipped it is. The nylon tip is not a single piece, the way the felt-tip pens are, but instead made up of individual nylon fibers that thin out. But they also hold their shape, so the tip of the pen is never going to go wonky on you.

The first stroke of the liner isn’t thick and dark, so you do have to go over it again, but my god is it thin. Paper thin. It really allows for more precision when lining. I still have trouble because of my eye shape, but I’m also able to work in much smaller increments, more precisely, so my flicks still wind up nice and sharp and thin. (Even if they never look the same from day to day.)

I took some comparison photos for you to see the lines that each make with 1, 2, and 3 strokes.

P1000088-2

P1000090-2

As you can see, the Surratt liner wins by far in the first stroke. It’s amazing how thin a line you can draw.

The Autoraphique Liner is a touch more matte than the Stila, which is strangely reflective, though not shiny or shimmery. It just stays looking a little wet. The ink in the Surratt liner also stays more contained where you put it, and doesn’t bleed out as much when first applied, as you can see below.

P1000093-2

The only thing about the Surratt liner that I think can be improved is that it does tend to migrate down/bleed over the day. I have to do periodic checks and wipe off black that has accumulated underneath the flick. The Stila liner stays where you put it a lot better.

Still, for the luxury of being able to work so precisely with my liner, with a tip that is so beautiful it almost makes you cry (seriously, the nylon tip WILL NEVER GET FUZZY AND ALWAYS STAYS IN A SHARP POINT), I have reached for this liner over the Stila liner every day since I’ve had it. And that’s saying a LOT.

Have you tried either of these? What’s your go-to liner? Do you have any suggestions for me for how to line my eyes like a normal person (with eyes that turn down at the ends)?

Obviously wearing Dior Haute Couture is something that will never ever ever ever ever happen to me in my life, but a girl can look and appreciate, right?!
