Spring Wardrobe Update: I’m Lovin’ These LOFT Chambray Softened Shirts [VIDEO]

Published in: Fashion, Video

Homegirl! I’m totally in love with these shirts. I’m not even usually a button-up collared shirt kind of gal, but these super soft shirts from LOFT have shown me the light!

I don’t know if you’ve been thinking about a spring wardrobe refresh, but if you are, throw one (or a couple) of these Chambray Softened Shirts up in the mix. You can wear them with jeans (denim head-to-toe? Yes you can!), white skinnies or shorts, and/or as layering piece on top of tanks, tees, or thin sweaters…

So many possibilities.

As always, thank you for watching!

Current Foundation Love: Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation [VIDEO]

Published in: Dior, Face, Makeup, Product Reviews, Video

Gurl, I can’t even… This foundation!? It is SO good that I haven’t even touched my previous holy grail, Laura Mercier Flawless Fluide in Chai, in weeks.

And before finding this, I was all about that Chai. I’m talking months of Karen + Chai. We were inseparable.

Aww! Now I’m actually starting to feel a little bad about it. Poor Chai, all neglected and lonely, abandoned like an old toy. :(

LOL! But I do kind of feel like we’ve broken up, and that I should do the things that broken up couples do, like go to over to Chai’s house to get my CDs, clothes and pizza pie pans.

We’re just on a break though. I still ❤ Chai.

Anywho…

Dior. Foundation. Amazing-ness. I go into it more in this video, but here are the main points: finish, formula and pores. Nude Air has a velvety finish and medium coverage, but you can build it up to just shy of full. It’s not a flat matte, and I’m loving that about it, because these days my primary objective is obtaining natural-looking, radiant skin.

Available in eight shades (I wear the one called Honey Beige)

A Quick Look at the New Too Faced Natural Matte Neutral Eye Shadow Collection in Action [VIDEO]

Published in: Eyes, Palettes, Too Faced, Video

Yes, another matte neutral palette, this one by Too Faced, and it’s new and available now for summer 2015.

This is my first time wearing the new Natural Matte Neutral Eye Shadow Collection, so I’m still testing it for wear (swatches and more detailed review coming soon), but here’s a quick overview and a look at it in action.

The gist of it is this: Too Faced took their $36 Natural Eyes palette, turned all the shades matte and created this.

As always, thank you for watching.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

Karen

P.S. I am so hungry right now I could eat my phone! I need to eat a massive amount of vegetables, or the world will suffer my wrath!!

P.P.S. Happy hump day evening, by the way. :)

MAC Philip Treacy Collection First Impressions, Mini Reviews [VIDEO]

Published in: Collections, MAC Makeup, Makeup, Video

Hats, baby! Hats, hats, all types of hats.

What’s that fancy word for a maker of hats…? I think it might be milliner? Milner?

I dunno.

London-based Philip Treacy is a big deal maker of hats (he outfitted several people who attended the royal wedding of William and Kate), and the MAC Philip Treacy collection was inspired by three of his coiffure-covering creations.

Ninth grade me would have flipped over this collection. That’s when I was deep in the midst of my hat phase. I wore a hat every day to school for most of that year.
