Hello Girlfriends... How is your weekend coming along? It's been nice and sunny in NYC, but it's starting to get a little chilly. Time to get your smokey eyes palette and red lipstick ready!
As I was walking around today, I was thinking about what would be a nice eyeshadow color to transition from summer to fall. To tell you the truth, I'm not ready to say "so long" to summer just yet, and I'm looking for any excuse to delay fall. Long story short, I found this super awesome palette from Illamasqua. It's called Illamasqua Complement Palette. This has to be a perfect companion to transition from bright colorful summer shadows to dark fall smokey eyes...
I like to use the top right corner as a base since it's a cream shadow. I also like the palette a lot because it's super easy to use and all the colors just work so well together!
The one on the right is my other favorite from Illamasqua. It's a neutral palette. It's also very easy to use. I think both are my favorite palettes from Illamasqua by far.
Check out how it looks on my face. Oh, I forgot to mention the lipstick! It's called "Atomic," and it's from Illamasqua too. Super lovely pink matte lipstick. Love it!!
Enjoy the rest of your summer...
Hi ladies... I'm sooo excited to write this post today!! As you can see from the picture, I met Marc Jacobs the other day... for real!! It was super awesome. I'm sure all of you are freaking out and asking, how did that happen? Well, Sephora invited 50 lucky VIB Rouge members to attend this event and I was lucky enough to be one of them! The event started with a make-over that allowed you to choose one signature Marc Jacobs look out of four. I picked the natural look since I always feel prettiest in it. I tried almost all the MJ makeup on the table!
There was a DJ playing, lots of champagne flowing, and trays of colorful, glittering macaroons... It was three hours of total enjoyment! And at the end of the night we had an opportunity to meet Marc Jacobs and take photographs with him. I chatted a little bit and told him that I have a blog. He said it was awesome... Yeayy!! That's quite an endorsement, eh?
Sephora just uploaded the pictures from the event onto their Facebook page. I downloaded a couple of them especially for you guys. Enjoy babes!
Hi guys... how is it going? Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
Summer is almost over so I decided to go to the beach nearby at the Jersey Shore and stay for a couple of days. It was just perfect. Just what I needed before I head back to my routine. I tried to enjoy every last bit of rays before the fall comes and no place is better than the beach.
I went to a cute little beach town called Spring Lake. There were some other beach towns nearby like Belmar, which was soo nice and trendy. I would love to stay there next time I visit.
I was soo lucky with the weather. It was gorgeous! I have a pretty nice tan now. Hurraay!! However, as always, I didn't forget to put tons of sunscreen everywhere. For my face, I used Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizeer SPF 40. For my lips, I used Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15, and for my body, I used Banana Boat Spray Sunscreen SPF 30.
Anyway, I just wanted to share some pictures from my short trip. Sorry if the pictures are not HD because I wasn't interested in bringing my SLR Camera to the beach :D
If you've ever smelled a fragrance from Chloé and loved it, you know you can't leave the house without it. The thing is that as much as I love the smell (and the cute bottle), it's impossible to bring it everywhere because the bottle is just too big and heavy.
Good thing Chloé figured out what we girls were going through. This limited edition set of three rollerball perfumes is not just pretty but convenient as well. It consists of three best-selling Chloé perfumes: Chloé L'eau de Chloé, Chloé Eau de Parfum, and Love by Chloé.
I have to say all of the perfumes smell amazingly beautiful. Each of them has a different character. L'eau de Chloé is more fresh and crisp with the dominant smell of citrus and rose. It's the kind of smell that I would wear on a hot summer day with a glass of mojito. The scent is soo refreshing!
Chloé Eau de Parfum has a more elegant and versatile character to it. It's the kind of perfume that I can use on a daily basis and would be good as a signature scent.
The last one is actually my favorite. Love by Chloé has a flowery and powdery scent, which I love. It's soft, feminine, and seductive. It also has a subtle musky scent which makes it a little heavy so I think it would be perfect for a romantic dinner with a nice Pinot Noir as a pairing.
Now the question is, how do you wear them?
Since each bottle is a rollerball and not a spray, there's obviously a different method of application. The good thing about a rollerball is that it concentrates the perfume in a smaller area rather than spraying it all over the place. I personally like to put it on my wrist. Make sure that your wrist or area that you're going to apply is clean since you don't want the scent to change after a while because of the contact to your skin.
Also, the smaller bottle size makes it very convenient to carry in your purse. That means you can reapply anytime you need to. I found it really convenient for a quick touch up. The three different scent in this set allows you to switch up in case you get bored of wearing the same one. Another cool trick is to layer the different scent. I actually tried it in my both wrist, one scent on my right wrist, another scent in the other one, then mixed them up by rubbing them together. It's soo fun and you get a personalized scent!
Overall, each of the perfumes is the kind of perfume that everyone would get their hands on because of their beautiful scents and their versatility. Also, this would be a good way to try on if you're new to the brand without making a huge commitment by buying the whole bottle. It also makes a beautiful gift. I'm gonna pick one for my friend's graduation gift. Yeah.. It's that good.
