Play Up Your Cheekbones With Topshop Glow Stick in Play Up

Published in: Daily Photo

Topshop Glow Stick

There’s a delicate quality to Topshop’s Glow Stick in Play Up ($15) that speaks to the part of me that loves a soft, subtle highlight.

Then there’s another part of me that instantly pictures a sea of sweaty people with glow sticks bouncing up and down in rhythm to a heavy bass beat in a secluded warehouse, but I digress…

Play Up might be too nuanced for you if you like your shimmer to shout from the rooftops (if that’s the case, might I suggest Aura over at Urban Decay?), but I’m digging its golden champagne sheen, which reminds me a little of Hourglass Ambient Powder in Luminous Light.

If you’d like to play up your upper cheekbones with Play Up, make a play date to visit your nearby Topshop store, Nordstrom, or check it out online.

Never Forget You Are Loved

Published in: Daily Photo

Just a gentle reminder in case you needed one. :)

I saw this piece of canvas wall art for $14.99 at TJ Maxx last weekend and couldn’t resist. I’m going to hang it in my kitchen so El Hub and Tabs (and any other poor soul who’s subject to my questionable cooking) can see it when they pass through.

I feel like the kitchen is the center, the heart of our house, so it belongs there.

My Latest Red Lip Love: Covergirl Outlast All-Day Lipcolor in Blushing Berry With LipPerfection Lip Liner in Passion

Published in: Daily Photo

I’ve been jonesin’ for a new red lip look, and this new combo by Covergirl hits the spot.

First, I line and fill in my lips with neutral red LipPerfection Lip Liner in Passion ($6.74). Next, I add a layer of metallic reddish berry Outlast All-Day Lip Color in Beaming Berry ($9.99) directly on top. Then, for extra shine, I top it all off with the clear topcoat that comes with Outlast All-Day.

Feels very Christmassy, doesn’t it? I’m gonna keep this one in the mental makeup Rolodex for the holidays.

When You Walk Into Ulta for One Thing…

Published in: Daily Photo

…and you walk out with a bag full of things you have deemed “necessities.”

The plan was to run in, grab cotton swabs, and run out.

I actually go through these things pretty fast. I use them to blend the edges of my eye makeup (especially liner on my bottom lash line), to apply lash glue to false lashes (I break them in half and use one of the broken ends without the cotton swab), to fix the edges of my lipstick…so many things.

Since I was already there at Ulta, I figured I might as well pick up a few other things I was also running low on…

And then came the other “Ah, might as well!” purchases, like a 1-inch barrel curling iron, which I’ve wanted for a while to do tighter curls…

And these false lashes by Eyelure, which were buy one, get one 50% off…

And one NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk (I like these as a base for bright eyeshadow).

Yup, I’ll be right in and out! Just gotta grab one thing. That’s what I always say…

NARCISO Eau de Parfum by Narciso Rodriguez

NARCISO Eau de Parfum by Narciso Rodriguez

For reasons I don’t understand but am not totally surprised by, I keep calling this new fragrance by designer Narciso Rodriguez, “NAR-SISCO,” as in the Thong Song Sisqo.

Don’t know why…since it’s about a million degrees of separation from shaking butts in booty floss, but sometimes things happen that we aren’t meant to understand. :)

I’ve been wearing it all week long (the eau de parfum, not the booty floss), even though its cedar, amber and musk notes make it seem a little warm for the late summer heat wave we’ve been having, and the gardenia and Bulgarian rose notes give it another level of creaminess that would probably make the scent better suited for chunky knit sweaters and knee-high boots. A splash of vetiver keeps it from being too hot and heavy, though, which is nice.

You can find NARCISO Eau de Parfum ($95 for a 1.6-oz. bottle and $112 for a 3-oz. bottle), Scented Body Lotion ($54 for a 6.7-oz. bottle) and Musc Oil Parfum ($155 for 1.6-oz.) now exclusively at Bloomingdale’s stores and online.
