I Feel Pretty Oh So Pretty
Being in the beauty business for over 20 years and a FULL on beauty junkie for longer then you could imagine, (or I’d like to confess to) I found some real winners this past year. Here is the doB “stand outs” in beauty 2011.
Hello Kitty Graffiti Collection’s Graffiti Palette, this had me at hello!
This signature, limited-edition tiered compact contains four eye shadows in shimmery gray, charcoal, soft pink and grayish teal, while the bottom tier holds a dusty pink and bronzy peach blush/bronzer duo.
Comme des Garçons Play Eau De Toilette, which in French means “Like Boys” need I say more?
Super sexy and anyone (guy or girl) can wear this fresh fragrance with notes of bitter orange, black pepper, lime, saffron, thyme, sage, sea notes, oak moss, patchouli and musk.
Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick in Soft Nude will deliver the “J. Lo- esque” nude lip look in you.
The instant rich color, in my opinion creates the perfect nude lip to pair up with a dramatic smoky eye. Apply it with or without lip liner and add a little clear gloss to bump up this hot look.
HANAair Professional Hair Dryer is the Christian Louboutin of blow dryers. I’d actually wear it out if I could, not so much but it is the best.
It doesn’t matter if you have a cabinet full of styling products to get the perfect blow out, if your blow dryer just sucks. HANA Salon presents the powerful HANAair hair dryer. It has this amazing technology but it’s adjustable heat settings and fan speeds make it my top pick.
Maybelline New York Falsies Volum’ Express in Black Drama delivers bangin’ bombshell lashes in a few strokes with the must be magical wand.
You can expect the most dramatic false lash look and fabulous volume! There patented spoon brush reaches lashes from corner-to-corner, while Black Drama formula fills in every gap. Matte black lashes nothing sexier then that my friend, I’ll wink to that!
SUNDÃRI Gotu Kola and Sacred Lotus Cellulite Lotion, say hi to smoother thighs.
This body lotion has a powerful combination of active ingredients like- Nelumbo Nucifera (Sacred Lotus) leaf extract, Gotu Kola, Pullulan, Caffeine Liposomes and Secale Cereale (Rye) seed extract that visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite and result in smoother looking skin, speaking from experience. The fact that it smells amazing is just bonus.
Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Liner in Black, puts the smoke into the Smoky Eye.
This semi- crème compact eye liner has a velvet matte finish that is super long-lasting. Use a liner brush to create a thin line or an eye shadow brush to create the most dramatic of eyes.
Too Faced The Bronzed and The Beautiful – French Riviera Edition, can’t make it to the South of France? Say bonjour to this bronzalicious travel ready set.
It includes three of Too Faced’s bestselling bronzing formulas, a complexion-enhancing golden highlight powder, and a deluxe Primed & Poreless SPF 20 Tinted Primer. Three bronzing formulas allow you to customize your glow: Sun Bunny Duo, a golden-hued bronzer; Chocolate Soleil: a matte, cocoa-infused formula ideal for a rich, matte effect; and Snow Bunny Duo, the perfect pink-and-mocha gold to brighten and perfect skin. Powdered Sun is ideal for highlighting cheekbones, brow bones, or anywhere you want a golden effect.
Trish McEvoy ‘Instant Eye Lift’ Concealer or as I like to call it, my morning miracle must have!
Trish McEvoy’s Instant Eye Lift is a long-wearing line filler and under-eye brightener that diminishes the look of fine lines while awakening the eye area for an instant, all-day lift.
