Lip Service: Charlotte Tilbury- THE QUEEN

So this frantic (as is Charlotte’s way) email arrives in my inbox like BUY THE QUEEN NOW! So I give in to the shenanigans and a massive box with a little tube of lipstick arrives a day later. This color is SO DAMN BRIGHT. Not in an awesome strawberry pink


Chanel Lips A/W 2016

I’ve been road testing a few of Chanel’s new Lippies for Fall, and so far so good. I skipped over the lipsticks … and not just because they are oddly bright for this season. Because… no. They don’t look impressive and swatched patchy on me. So, pass. But the new


Estee Lauder + Victoria Beckham: The Second

FOTD: Lions & Chimps

MAC: The Good, The Bad, and The Raggedy as Hell

MAC keeps trying to pull me back into their shenanigans and I refuse. REFUSE. But I did stop running away from their 50 billion launch emails long enough to do two things: support Star Trek (which collaborated to celebrate a 50th Anniversary), and Taraji P. Henson (because … BOSS). The
