Wearing the new NARS Fall 2015 collection

The NARS 2015 collection has more twists than a woman-in-peril movie on Lifetime (which I’ve been watching A LOT lately, as you can tell). You know, like, just when you start to think that the birth mother of the baby that the movie’s protagonist planned to adopt might actually be a a nice girl, but then it turns out that she’s wanted in eight states for kidnapping and extortion! *gasp!*

Hello, TWIST.

The Bobbi Brown Telluride Collection: If You Like Your Makeup Elegant and Easy to Wear, Check Out Telluride

Published in: Bobbi Brown, Collections, Makeup, Product Reviews

Wearing makeup from the new Bobbi Brown Telluride collection — namely the Telluride Eye Palette, Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks in New Maui, and Sheer Lip Color in Sunset Pink

Do you know the way to [SAN JOSE] Telluride?

Getting there is actually quite easy from what I understand. No matter where you are, you can literally get there in minutes.

No, really! Would I ever pull your leg?

Nawww, of course I wouldn’t, because there’s never any joking here. Not on MBB. Not ever. Everything on MBB is completely serious all of time. :)

No, really though. You will not have to endure a five-hour plane ride seated next to an extra chatty dude who won’t stop talking about Colorado mining rights. All you’ll have to do is roll on over to your favorite Bobbi Brown counter when the new Telluride collection arrives this July.

Are you ready to boogie? Because I am! — in MAC Dazzleshadows from the new MAC Le Disko collection

shiny-party-ball-2WANTED — One illuminating disco floor (complete with square floor tiles that change color to the beat of the music) and silver disco ball for impromptu office party. I’ll provide music and cat (because what’s a disco party without a chubby tabby? — a HELLA BORING disco party, that’s what). You bring your slickest bell-bottoms and signature moves.

En lieu of cover charge, arrive wearing one of the new Dazzleshadow eyeshadows from the new MAC Le Disko collection, and enter the front door doing The Hustle. :)

The MAC Giambattista Valli Collection: Florals, Femininity and Fabulously Bold Matte Lipstick

Published in: Collections, Lips, MAC Makeup

“Like, totally rad to the max! I want to be a Valli girl!”

I don’t even know where to start with the MAC Giambattista Valli collection.

Gah! Between the practical packaging (the color of each tube reflects the color of its corresponding lipstick, making it easy to find the shade you’re looking for) and the corals, pinks and reds?

YAAAAS! I’m a little beside myself…

Bold lip lovers who live for classic colors (this includes at least one crazy cat lady/lipstick-loving blogger), this six-piece collection is for you.

The MAC Giambattista Valli collection Matte Lipsticks ($17.50 each)

First, who the heck is Giambattista Valli?

I’m glad you asked. :) He’s an Italian fashion designer known for his dramatic dresses, feminine designs and his use of floral embellishments.

Very girly-girl stuff — and I’d wear his clothes in a HEARTBEAT if ever given the chance (assuming I had a reason to wear a full-length, floral-print strapless dress with a thigh-high slit).

giam-val

The MAC Giambattista Valli collection evokes the designer’s affinity for femininity, florals and color, and each of the six lip products in it are inspired by his dresses.

Five full-coverage Matte Lipsticks ($17.50 each) and one potted lip gloss ($23) comprise the collection, which arrives online and at MAC stores and counters July 9 through August 6.

The MAC Giambattista Valli collection includes…

  • MAC Matte Lipstick in Bianca B — a pale white pink
  • MAC Matte Lipstick in Tats — a bright hot pink
  • MAC Matte Lipstick in Margherita — a yellowish bright peach
  • MAC Matte Lipstick in Charlotte — a rich yellowish red
  • MAC Matte Lipstick in Eugenie — a dark cherry with blue undertones
  • MAC Crystal Glaze Gloss in Lena — a clear gloss with multicolored flecks of pearl

The New Long-Lasting Sally Hansen Poolside Paradise Miracle Gel Nail Polish Collection: This Mirror-Like Shine Makes Lounging by the Pool More Fun

Published in: Collections, Nails, Product Reviews, Sally Hansen

sally hansen poolside paradise

Five shades (and the top coat) from the new limited edition Sally Hansen Poolside Paradise Collection, available now ($9.99 each)

My version of a poolside paradise typically includes some combination of the following…

  1. Trashy mags, and US Weekly is a fave.

    Strangely, I only read it when I’m at the pool…

  2. Iced tea.
  3. One of those oversized fluffy beach towels that are so big that I can wrap them around my torso twice.

    Because I’m not about that tiny towel life. Even when it’s 95 degrees outside, I’m always freezing when I get out of the water.

  4. Sunscreen, obvs.
  5. A bathing suit that stays put even after multiple cannonballs (learned this lesson the hard way).
  6. Cheapie sunglasses, because who wants to stress out over losing or breaking their favorite pair of expensive sunglasses at the pool?
  7. A shiny mani/pedi combo, ideally in bright shades like the ones from the new Sally Hansen Poolside Paradise Collection above, because despite the lack of verifiable scientific evidence to support this, I think they make your cannonballs more cannon-bally.

    Seriously, they totally do.

I wore two of these Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes last week on my trip to New Orleans (creamy yellow Morning Sunshine on my toes and creamy leafy green Lip Palm on my paws), and they were all it took. Now I consider myself a card-carrying member the Miracle Gel cult.

Wait — do the Miracle Gels actually have a cult??

If they don’t, they totally should. These nail polishes are…

  • Long-lasting
  • Playful and bright
  • Easy to apply
  • And affordable

All of which add up to “drugstore gem!”
