Even though it’s not quite over, I can already safely say: my favorite look out of all of Paris Fashion Week was seen at Lanvin. With a porcelain complexion, naturally pretty pink lip, and one seriously exaggerated, dramatic cat eye, this glossy look was as spring-fresh as it was rock ‘n’ roll. During NYFW last […]

Frugal Snob: Disney’s Limited Edition Tinkerbell-Themed PixiGlow Collection

Pixi and I go waaaay back as it was one of the first brands I consistently bought when I was in High School. I first discovered it at Henri Bendel, but about a year into my obsession they discontinued the range and Sephora picked it up. Another year or so later Sephora discontinued the line […]

Take Runway to Reality: Opposites Attract at Chanel

And don’t they always when it comes to finding the fine balance for making up our faces? A strong eye requires a light lip, and vice versa, unless you want to look like an eighties-era streetwalker or a little girl who got lost in her mommy’s vanity. While the extreme raccoon eyes at the recent […]
