Estee Lauder Launches Pure Color Modern Mercury

I’ve met Tom Pecheux on a few occasions and he’s awesome. Not only does he have impeccable taste and a knack for being ahead of beauty trends (he was the mastermind behind the orange eye look at Derek Lam’s S/S 2011 show, which set off the orange beauty trend), but he’s honest and funny (ie, … Continue reading Estee Lauder Launches Pure Color Modern Mercury

New from Givenchy

Usually when I opt for a bold eye color I go with grey, brown, or black shadow and line my eyes with a popping colored liner on my top lash line, but I am so tempted to buy Givenchy’s Le Prismissime 9-Colors Eyeshadow 61 Acid Lights ($62).

Unfortunately that meant leaving my treasured Sensai Fluid Finish Foundation at home (I swear the Natural Beige shade feels like it was made for me!).

Givenchy Summer 2010 Collection

  I never wear waterproof mascara because I worry about loosing eyelashes in the process of taking it off, but my allergies have left me no choice but to succumb. Well… sort of! I’ve been using Givenchy Phenomen’Eyes Mascara ($29), which now comes in waterproof black and turquoise varieties on the small lashes at the edges … Continue reading Givenchy Summer 2010 Collection
