Kevyn Aucoin Has Just Landed at Sephora!


I’m a huge Kevyn Aucion fan. It used to be available only at Neiman Marcus, which isn’t alway convenient. I’m so excited to announce that it’s now available at Sephora.com.


This line is that of a true makeup artist. The products are really high quality and they are fun and unique. They are a bit pricey, but I think that considering the quality and genius behind them, it’s worth it.


Some of my favorite products are:




 The Essential Eye Shadow Set - Palette #1



 This palette is so pretty and versitile. It looks great on every skin- tone.


The set contains five shadow colors: ivory, taupe brown, deep mustard, dark chocolate and melon plus two double-ended applicators.







The Essential Flesh-Tone Pencil in Medium



This is my most favorite lip pencil ever!! It’s the perfect "nude color.


I wear it with every lipstick I own and it matches perfectly. I discovered this pencil several years ago and since then it’s been my secret weapon!







The Curling Mascara in Rich Pitch Black



Ok..This mascara has truly been a life-saver for me. Mascara ALWAYS runs on me, no matter if it’s waterproof or not. This mascara dosen’t.


It’s a protien based mascara that shrink-wraps around your lashes to coat each one individually, and comes off in little tubes without any residue. It genius I tell you.

It also give lashes a beautiful color and is super-dark black which I adore..It’s awesome!




The Sensual Skin Enhancer




Awesome foundation..You just need to know how to use it.


This un-assuming foundation comes in a simple jar but there is nothing simple about it. Alone it provides heavy coverage. Mix it with moisturizer and you have a tinted-moisturizer. Blend it with a little eye cream and make the perfect concealer. The possibilities are endless.




Check out Sephora for a complete list of all the products and enjoy, they’re great!

Strange Invisible Perfumes Newest Scent


  By Sharon Curtis



One of my favorite fragrance house’s, is little known. I’m referring to Strange Invisible Perfumes. These fragrances are rather hard to find. I buy mine at Barney’s New York in Beverly Hills.  The most unique feature of SIP is the process of making the fragrances. It’s done through an intense botanical extraction process. The result are very fresh and clean fragrances.


The newest addition to the line is called Musc Botanique. This fragrance is described as clean with an underlined animalistic quality. It’s muskiness is a combination of geranium, white amber, angelica and frakincense. It’s completely uni-sex.


SIP fragrances aren’t cheap. Musc Botanique will retail at $135 for a 1.7 oz. eau de parfum and $185 for a .25-oz. perfume version. It will debut in September and be available at Barney’s New York and Strange Invisible Perfumes.
