Sephora's IZAK Collection

There’s something timeless about the black and white color combo on products that is so alluring. One that caught my eye over the holidays was SEPHORA’s Sephora by Izak Collection. It’s a collection of cosmetic bags and makeup and the designs are created by French Illustrator, Izak Zenou, and they are about as tré cool as you get.

Sephora-by-IZAK-Collection-Makeup-BagAnd I love the span of items they did for it. Here are my picks:

IZAK Pouch – a useful triangle shape to make items easy to find when it sits at the bottom of your purse

IZAK Traincase – who couldn’t use a makeup case to store your products (and I swear one of the women on the front looks just like Nathalie Portman!)

IZAK Nail File Set – I always find myself in need of a nail file and each of the 3 in this set has the cute girls printed on them.

Are you needing to pick up any of these for yourself?

This is a health & beauty article

Moms always know the right thing to say, they're usually the shoulder we cry on, and they seem to know what we need before we even do. However, 2012 seemed to turn that whole notion upside down by introducing us to a handful of mothers who aren’t exactly providing the best guidance. Check out the almost unbelievable mom antics of the year.

Review+Swatches - Hourglass Cosmetics Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil

HOURGLASS COSMETICS just put out a couple of new products and I’m all over this Film Noir Kohl Eye Pencil. As we all know, kohl pencils are the smoothest, most non-tugging, color-rich eye pencils out there, but surprisingly, this one is not as soft as the usual kohls I’ve used; it’s actually quite hard. They call this the “next generation of kohl pencils,” so maybe a harder formula is where it’s at!

What it lacks in the ease of application, it makes up for in the deep pigmentation and longevity of wear and this one comes with a sharpener built inside the cap. Available in two colors, Eclipse (black) and Espresso (dark brown black), shown here.

What it is: BARE ESCENTUALS The Royal Treatment

Why I like it: It has a little bit of everything from their makeup line (15 pieces total), and it comes in this wicked cool roll-up cosmetic case.

2012 Holiday Pick - Kat Von D Starry Eyes Makeup Palette

She’s into Vemon and Motörhead, tattoos and dates one of the best electro-house music producers of the past decade and she’s cool enough to have a makeup line.

Kat-Von-D-Starry-Eyes-Makeup-PaletteWhat it is: KAT VON D Starry Eyes Makeup Palette – 4 Eye Shadow Trios in Felix, Helmüt, Lohnër, Requiem, Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in Lolita and Adora.

Why I like it: I love this not only because of the mucho shadow colors you get for the price but the quality is great. When was the last time you used up a whole shadow? Exactly. Instead of giving us a ton of a few colors, they give us 3 in each color family. And were these modeled after the Inglot brand’s shadows? Hmmm.

Price: $34 only @
