Allure Product Review: Orly Matte Top Satin Finish Topcoat

Read this review on Allure.com here.

WHAT IT IS:
A mattifying topcoat free of toluene, DBP, and formaldehyde

WHY WE LIKE IT:
In one swipe, it takes any nail polish from glossy to shine-free. Just keep it to subtle nudes or grays; it can cheapen reds and pinks.

Life’s a Peach

All this springy weather is making me feel, well, peachy keen. This Fashionista is sporting a super unique tee shirt that she cut up herself with a pop of peach peeking out underneath. Peachy and coral hues look fresh in surprising, small glimpses, but can be overwhelming if its the focal point of the ensemble. To replicate this Fashionista’s peek-a-boo peach bandeau, try this ruched tube piece in fluorescent orange or coral.

Fuchsia:

Looking to update your classic cherry red lips? A bold fuchsia mouth is a modern alternative. The hue adds a distinct youthfulness to your look. To recreate this look seen in at Spring 2010 Marc by Marc Jacobs (pictured,) try Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Fuchsia, $8.99. For less of a matte look, top with NARS Lip Gloss in Easy Lover, $24, or wear the gloss alone for a sheer hot pink.

Also offer yourself a quick fuchsia flash, just swipe Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Lip & Cheek Tint, $7, in I Pink I Can over the apples of your cheeks for an instant beauty refresher. I like to use this cheek tint as a pick-me-up whenever my skin looks a bit paler than usual, it always brings a healthy glow to my face.

Orange Crush:

This sunny shade lit up at Prada‘s (pictured) and Giambattisa Valli‘s Spring 2010 runways. This divinely summer shade was painted on the pouts in both shows, and you too can simply slick on the orange-y goodness of Tarte Natural Lip Stain, $24,  in Joy. This lip pencil may look like those chubby crayons you drew stick figures with in grade school, but Crayola has nothing on these fool-proof pencils. The lip pencil is super easy to use and leaves a lasting apricot hue on your lips. Also check out Benefit Georgia Blush, $28, for a soft, feminine peaches and cream glow.

Polishing off Your Winter Wardrobe with Chanel

January 19, 2010

As some of you may have seen, the Chanel Spring 2010 Paris runway show was part hoedown, with splash of Marie Antoinette, and a touch Parisian prostitute with the painted-on pearl garter belts. Head designer and Chanel’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld, transformed the Grand Palais into a barnyard bonanza. The childlike models emerged from a barn (yes, a barn, adorned with the iconic Chanel double C’s,) complete with healthily rosy cheeks, wind-swept up-do’s, basket-woven handbags, apron-like skirts, clunky wooden clogs, a performance from Brit pop star and current Chanel muse, Lily Allen, countryside plaids and of course, tweeds, as well as a romping threesome in the hay.
