  1. Wow! I have'nt been a visitor for ages! Good to be back. So recently I stumbled upon a thread containing Kim Kardashian's makeup usage in one day. It included the products and the number of steps. some persons found it absolutely normal, others found it totally way out there. I at first thought it was way out there but when i looked at my collection and I counted how many steps it took for me apply makeup to my face each morning (with a natural face look) it added up to more than I assumed. What do you think? And how does your routine compare? "This is the amount of products she uses in one day: Wet Wipes, brand not specified, but we'll go with Burt's Bees cucumber and sage facial cleansing towelettes because they are my favorite: $6.00 Kiehl's Ultra Facial moisturizer: ​$18.50 Anastasia Beverly Hills eyebrow brush #14 (Macy's exclusive): ​$18.00 Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation in two shades (7.0 and 9.0): ​$62.00 each (or Bobbi Brown foundation stick: ​$44.00) It Cosmetics double-ended airbrush foundation brush: ​$48.00 (or Trish McEvoy foundation brush, unspecified so let's go with brush #76 : ​$50.00) ​ Beautyblender sponge: ​$20.00 POREfessional Agent Zero shine-vanishing powder: ​$30.00 MAC lip conditioning balm: ​$16.00 MAC ultra-luxe powder puff: ​$12.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz eyebrow pencil in medium brown: ​$21.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pro eyebrow shade palette (misc. colors to blend): ​$88.00 Marc Jacobs Twinkle Pop eye shadow: ​$28.00 Sigma E46 Inner Corner brush: ​$14.00 Charlotte Tilbury Golden Goddess eyeshadow palette (misc. colors to blend): ​$52.00 Stila double-sided crease and liner brush #15 : ​$32.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills So Hollywood facial highlighter (forthcoming release, but Kim has the product already because she's special, obvi): ​$28.00 MAC Prep+ water mist: ​$22.00 Kevin Aucoin Primatif eye pigment in titian: ​$48.00 Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette (misc. colors to blend): ​$52.00 MAC Boot Black liquid eye liner: ​$21.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills eyelash brush #3 : ​$18.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills Creme Color eyelid gel cream in jet black: ​$18.00 Surratt Relevee eyelash curler: ​$30.00 Dermacolor Camouflage Creme makeup (misc. colors to blend): ​$29.00 Giorgio Armani Eye Tint eyeliner: ​$38.00 ​Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in scorch: ​$20.00 Charlotte Tilbury Rock 'N' Kohl eyeliner in barbarella brown: ​ $27.00 LORAC concealer brush #103 (now discontinued): ​$25.00 Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish powder: ​$38.00 L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon volume building mascara: ​$7.25 (or Benefit Cosmetics They're Real lengthening mascara: $24.00) Charlotte Tilbury Vintage Vamp eyeshadow palette (misc. colors to blend, and yes, this is the third separate Charlotte Tilbury eyeshadow palette that's included in Kim's mix): ​$52.00 Cargo Swimmables eye pencil in black sea: ​$18.00 Sigma E17 waterline liner: ​$14.00 MAC Studio Fix foundation powder: ​$27.00 Red Cherry false eyeleashes, "a bunch" used: from $2.99 DUO eyelash adhesive: ​$9.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills precision tweezers: ​$28.00 Benefit Cosmetics Hoola matte bronzer: ​$28.00 Trish McEvoy sheer blush brush #2B : ​$49.00 Anastasia Beverly Hills contour kit (misc. colors to blend): ​ $40.00 Vincent Longo eyeshadow brush #22 : ​$20.00 Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow bronzer: ​$68.00 Benefit Cosmetics Watts Up! powder highlighter: ​$30.00 Too Faced Love Flush long-lasting blush: ​$26.00 Trish McEvoy blending brush #48 : ​$49.00 Sigma E35 tapered blending brush: ​$16.00 Kevin Aucoin lip pencil: ​$25.00 Preo eyelash curler: ​$28.00 Tom Ford lip colors, "like five" (custom shades, mixed together): ​$52.00 each TATCHA Aburatorigami blotting sheets: ​$12.00" Source http://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/celebs/news/a44750/kim-kardashian-four-figure-makup-regime/

  4. Share on Tumblr inShare0 Share on Tumblr New York celebrated a milestone this past weekend. Gay marriage was just legalized in the state, and this past Sunday was the first day couples could take advantage of it. (Check out the great coverage in the NY Times Styles section. You will cry.) The wedding industry has jumped on the opportunity to market things to gay couples, and now the beauty industry is, too. We love this new collection of nail polish by Color Club, which features a rainbow of shades with cheeky names: P is for Pride; Polish for All; Dress for the Parade; Not Just for Kelly, Green; Boys Wear Blue; Express Yourself. We wish they had gone even further with the names, like “Drag Me to Stonewall†or “Queen of Christopher Street.†(We have fantasies of being a nail polish namer. Sorry.) The collection is formaldehyde, paraben, DBP, and toluene-free, and a portion of the proceeds will go to an NYC-based AIDS charity. You can pick up the range at shopcolorclub.com for $48.

  5. Star among celebs whose ads were banned over airbrushing They were hired for their beauty. But it seems that Julia Roberts and Christy Turlington weren’t quite beautiful enough for L’Oreal. Pictures of them were digitally altered to make their skin appear even more flawless in advertisements for the beauty firm. Both ads have been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority after complaints that they were misleading. Too perfect: The Advertising Standards Agency banned this Lancome advert of actress Julia Roberts after complaints it was misleading The complaints were brought by Lib-Dem MP Jo Swinson, who argued that airbrushing creates a false impression of beauty. She claims the results put pressure on women and young girls who compare themselves unfavourably to the unrealistic images. The Julia Roberts ad showed the actress in a two-page magazine spread for Teint Miracle foundation by Lancôme, one of L’Oreal’s make-up brands. The ad claimed the foundation ‘recreates the aura of perfect skin’. The brand claimed the product was the result of 10 years of research and suggested the science was the subject of seven patent applications. The actress was reportedly paid around £15million to be the face of the Lancome brand. However, she is, perhaps, an unlikely ambassador for the company. Last year, the 43-year-old star and mother of three condemned the obsession with beauty and youth as ‘shallow’. L’Oreal admitted that certain ‘post production’ techniques had been used on the image of the actress. But it insisted the picture was an accurate representation of her ‘naturally healthy and glowing skin’. L’Oreal was also in the dock over its image of Christy Turlington in a magazine ad for The Eraser foundation, from its Maybelline brand. Too good to be true: This Maybelline advert starring Christy Turlington was one of the adverts banned over its use of the airbrush Parts of her face had been apparently been covered with the foundation while other areas were left natural to show the effects of the product. The text claimed the product: ‘Conceals instantly, visibly, precisely ... Covers dark circles and fine lines to help conceal crow's feet - as if erased!’ Complaints: Lib Dem MP Jo Swinson contacted the Advertising watchdog because she believes airbrushed adverts give a false impression of beauty Additional text described the product as ‘The New Anti-Aging Foundation’. Small print along the bottom admitted the image was an ‘Illustrated effect’. L’Oreal said the image had been digitally re-touched to ‘lighten the skin, clean up make-up, reduce dark shadows and shading around the eyes, smooth the lips and darken the eyebrows’. However, again, it insisted that the image was an accurate reflection of the benefits of the product. The ASA was not convinced, ruling the images could not be used again in their current form. On the Julia Roberts picture, it said: ‘On the basis of the evidence we had received we could not conclude that the ad image accurately illustrated what effect the product could achieve, and that the image had not been exaggerated by digital post production techniques.’It said the airbrushing on the Maybelline advertisement was also likely to mislead.

  6. Didn't Christine say it was available at Ulta?
  7. You're so right Musingmuse. I have so little info on who owns what and where. Thanks a mil Zadi for your info....I'd have to agree with you on this one. The evidence is shocking. Oh and to answer the question, yes I do feel bad buying high end makeup. I have neglected so many other areas of my (beauty) life, like my wardrobe for instance in the name of makeup.....that when I purchase something expensive makeup wise, I'm always like, ummmmm I need a new shoe, or a new blazer :/ should I REALLY be buying this?
  8. OoooOOOOoooo...nice one @bombdiggity. I love wedges as well but sometimes they just don't go with what I want to wear so I opt for heels. I prefer heels, but my now bad ankle is preventing me from the really high ones.
  9. Wow ladies!!!! You all look like over tanned geishas!!! hehehehehe
  10. I have my makeup in a train case and in other little cases around. The ones I have on my dresser are the ones I use most. The palettes that are on the bottom compartment of my train case? Well lets just say I hate to unpack it and pack it back, so I hardly ever use them. The same goes with nail polish. I have enough to fit in a good sized bag (God I need to organize better) and the ones that are to the bottom never gets used. I am thinking of finding a way where all my makeup can be easily accessed. Many times I dig around and say "geesh! Can't believe I stopped using this!" What do you think? Do you just put your favorites on top or in sight or do you use everything?
  11. I toss things that have been around for a while and I know I won't be using them. They'd just stick around and take up space I already don't have. LOL
