With notes of bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks and vanilla), Coco is classified as a fresh oriental fragrance, but I just think of it as a perfect date night outfit in fragrance form — elegant, yet playful, with one of those sexy winks.
Here’s a fun fact: in coming up with this famous fragrance, Coco Mademoiselle creator Jacques Polge tried to envision a scent that Coco herself might have worn had she celebrated her 21st birthday bash right at the dawn of the 21st century.
Scary name. Awesome blush.
If you’ve always liked the idea of NARS Orgasm but were kept away by its sparkly golden shimmer, then try the following: 1) pick up a pan of Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Malice, and 2) write yourself a note to remember to send me an invitation to the wedding, because you + this blush = lifetime of peachy pink happiness.
Malice all day errrday…except when I’m wearing Chanel Pink Explosion.
This one’s a fireworks display of straight-up pink. Great for going all-out pink with pink lipsticks and glosses, and it looks killer with bright hot pinks or fuchsias.
4. The Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow
It’s safe to assume that I have one of these jars of creamy goodness somewhere on my person or in my hotel room whenever I’m anywhere on a trip.
All of them are easy to apply (just pat ‘em on your lids with a finger). Plus they last all day.
Gosh, I love these… So many of them fall into my everyday makeup category. You can even wear the super glittery ones like Fantasme on top of other eye products as a glittery eyeshadow top coat.
Dore is my champion in the ongoing battle of Karen Versus Her Pores.
Seriously, this loose powder’s skin-smoothing powers are surreal. The grains are imbued with pore-blurring powder-puffing magic that creates a hazy soft focus effect.
