Tom Ford's New Lipstick Collection is Here!

Hello Gorgeous! 

Tom Ford's Lipstick Collection is finally at Neiman Marcus!  I was able to take mostly all the photos for the exception of two colors (Spanish Pink and Deep Mink).  I love all the colors especially the nude shades.  They flatter anyone who wears them.  If you own a Tom Ford lipstick from his previous collection you can expect the same color payoff and texture.  I love the new brown/black tube in comes in this time.  It is very vintage and classic for the modern woman. 

Here is a look at all the lipsticks.

When I first put this one on I was impressed with the color.  Very bright and lush!  I LOVE IT!  Perfect color for going out or the office.
Scarlet Rouge
Crimson Noir
Violet Fatale
I thought Violet Fatale was going to be a deep purple color, but it is kind of sheer looking.  I would have to pair a deep burgundy lip liner with this one to get the desired effect I am looking for.  Tom Ford will have a collection of liners as well.
Black Orchid
 Black Orchid is a repeat from his old collection, but I find it to be different.  The new color has more shimmer with flecks of gold and burgundy in it, while the old one is a more opaque sheen look.  I love both.  
Wild Ginger (looks like Ginger Fawn)

MAC Me Over Baby!

Velma and Amanda
Hello Gorgeous! 

Today I had lots of fun with my two favorite girls, Amanda and Velma, at the MAC counter at Nordstroms Galleria Mall in Dallas.  Amanda who happens to be a wonderfully talented makeup artist for MAC applied Velma's makeup using the MAC Me Over Collection.  If you haven't had a chance to see this collection you are missing out!  I love everything!  My favorite eye shadow so far is called Carbonized.  It is gorgeous!  Amanda used Carbonized and Moleskin for Velma's soft smokey look.  

Here are the photos and what she used. 

Everything used for Velma's look.

Amanda first applied Groundwork paint pot all over Velma's lid. Next she applied Moleskin eye shadow in her crease using MAC's 217 brush.  Using MAC's Smolder eyeliner, she applied it on the lash line and smudged it into the lid.  Next she applied Carbonized eye shadow working from the lash line up to blend both eyeliner and shadow together.

Smudging the eye shadow and eyeliner together to give that sexy sultry smoldered look. 

Amanda used smolder eyeliner inside the water line of the eye.

One eye is done to see the difference.

Amanda let me in on a little secret on how JLO gets her glowing super nude lip. She said putting concealer on first makes your lips more true to color because we all have some pink in our lips. Amanda used a Concealer all over Velma's lips that complimented her skin tone.  On top of that she use Peach Stock lipstick all over and then applied Love Nector lip gloss on top.

Super Sexy finished look.

Tenderling Blush was used on the apples of the cheeks.

Finished look up close!

I give this look a 5 star rating!  I love me some MAC!!!

Trish McEvoy's Portable Beauty Collection Romance

Hello Gorgeous! 

Yesterday I went to go see my good friend Rob Escher at Neiman Marcus Northpark in Dallas, who also happens to be the National Makeup Artist for Trish McEvoy.  He showed me a new "Planner" that Trish McEvoy has come out with recently.  I have to say Trish has out done herself this time!  Her new Timeless Beauty Ready to Wear Makeup Planner and Portable Beauty Collection Romance are a Valentino inspired purse with that famous accented bow on front.  
National Makeup Artist for Trish McEvoy, Rob Escher
I have tons of her planners, but this doesn't stop me from getting a new one because her planners can be used for different occasions.  I have a range from a turquoise snake print to a bubble gum Barbie pink patent one.  I use them all the time depending my mood.  Her planners resemble an office agenda.  All your makeup is organized and in place. She has pages to hold your blushes and eye shadows on a ring binder.  Perfect for the professional woman!  Really anyone can use it because she has made it fun to own!  

Trish McEvoy is also known for making Beauty Emergency Cards for eyes and lips.  Really ingenious if you ask me!  This little "credit card" size makeup card is perfect for just about anyone, from the minimalist to the fashionista who has a red carpet event and can't carry much with her.  

Trish's Portable Beauty Collection Romance beauty case is so adorably cute and holds her famous Beauty Emergency Card with a set of dual ended brushes, beauty booster lipgloss in SPF 15, and eye lift under-eye brightener.  

Rob and I wanted to see just what would fit inside this cute little case.  We were able to put my cell phone, a couple of credit cards, and a full size lipstick from Trish's line, plus the rest of the products that came with the case.  AMAZING!!!  Ladies this is really all you need for a night out on the town.  Don't fret with a handbag.  You will look elegant and chic with your Valentino like case!  People will ask where you got this!  Did I mention it has a built in mirror too? It does! You will look fabulous! 

Just the cell phone and the rest of the products
 FYI Those brushes alone are the cost of the case! This case with all the goodies costs $75. 
added the full size lipstick and credit cards.

So Adorable
Here is what you get:

  • instant eye lift under-eye brightener and line filler, deluxe travel size.
  • Beauty Booster lip gloss SPF 15 in Sexy Petal, deluxe travel size.
  • Dual Ended Eye Brush featuring two of Trish's most iconic eye-enhancing brushes on opposing ends: Brush 50 Angled Eye Lining and Brush 23 Angled Crease Contour.
