I am all about L’OREAL’s Infallible products. They just stay like no other so when I saw that they now have Infallible Eye Shadows in an array of colors, I jumped to try them. I mean, isn’t that what makeup is all about? Wearable colors that stay put? Anyway, the first one I laid eyes on was 88 Midnight Blue and I’m dedicating one whole feature to it as it’s love.
I’m a sucker for anything “As Seen on TV,” as I’ve mentioned here before and I think it’s mostly the notion of we-ve-found-a-better-way-to-do-it of it all. And this next one totally falls into that category. It’s called ROOTS ONLY and is for applying at-home hair color to your, well, roots only.
Lotta buzz on TOM FORD’s latest fragrance, Violet Blonde eau de parfum, and I can’t say I liked it when I first tried it but it for sure has grown on me. I am huge fan of his Gucci Rush and that was an instant fave so I was a little surprised as how long this one took for me to warm up to it.
It’s based on powdery notes of violet and iris and this is the first of three he will be releasing shortly (the others are Jasmin Rouge and Santal Blush).
Top notes: violet leaf absolute, Italian mandarin and baie rose.
Middle Notes: Tuscan orris absolute, Tuscan orris butter and jasmin sambac sampaquita.
Bottom Notes: benzoin, cedarwood, vetiver absolute, silkolide and soft suede.
I think this one is for evening wear as it is pretty heady but in a good way and I’ve found myself reaching for this on a few occasions when I want to feel a tad extra feminine. $100/1.7oz, $145/3.4oz @ sephora.com.

I am a sucker for these shadow liners mostly because they are so easy to use and great for when you are in a rush. The latest ones are from the MALLY BEAUTY line. Evercolor Shadow Sticks come in 17 different colors and are really smooth going on and quite pigmented.
CHANEL's Rough Coco Hydrating Lip Crème in 40 Charme is a soft blue pink that is on the sheer side, so much so that I would call this a lip tint.
Welcome to the CHANEL's Spring 2012 Makeup Collection. So how does the one-and-only see the season? Let’s look through their eyes with a few products in the line today and start with the eyes.
I’ve always been a big fan of the LALICIOUS line. They just put out great quality body products where I never have to be afraid of the ingredients. They just added a new scent called Sugar Reef this month and I tried two of them. So did they live up to my expectations?
URBAN DECAY added some more shades of those hot guy lip glosses to the line. Have you seen these yet? Each cap has uses a holographic design effect so depending on how you move it, you either get him clothed or in his skivvies!
