MAC & Ungaro- Fall '08

C'est vrais!

According to, to celebrate Emmanuel Ungaro's new designer Esteban Cortazar, MAC and Ungaro will team up ( much like MAC and McQueen this past fall) with a limited edition collection.

This is some real exciting news as the McQueen Collection was one of my faves from MAC. All the colors were wearable and it looks to be the same for Ungaro!

Bienvenue Paris Fashion Week!

Today starts the official day of Paris pret-a porter!
I'll start my coverage as soon as the furvor comes down the runway.

But for now... I'll continue to stay dry, study for the GMAT and find new and exciting beauty dibbs to share. Until this upcoming week, I'd like to share with you some info from Bryanboy, one of my favorite bloggers.
EFJ ( Enviornmental Justice Foundation) has teamed up with some haute designers ( yes this includes Lacroix) to make t-shirts that are 100% cotton and ethically made!
Check it out here

Until then. a plus!

Could the "unicorn" or Holy Grail of Lipstick be discontinued?!
I know... #1 how could this be the ultimate one? and #2, for it to be discontinued it has to already exist-yup and yup to that.
I must profess, Yves Saint Laurent's Rouge Personnel's lipsticks are great..damn near perfect! Esssspecially #8 Tender Parma, the perfect pink/nude/natural lip for a woman of color like me.
I first received a sample of this lippie from a Nordies Gift with Purchase in June of last year. Then I hit the streets.
The line was pulled everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE. No Nordies,Bloomies,Neimans..even Galleries Lafayette in Paris. Nada, Nyet, Zip, Zilch..ebay?
Yup, I got a #8 on Ebay, Along with blindly buying #23 ( a seductive plum merlot shade). Too gorgeous, available no more.
Have you had a great experience with YSL's Rouge Personnel?

Give 'em the BV eye!

Bottega Veneta eye that is!
Straight from Milan Fall '08 fashion week.
I love the blend of the classic cat eye with a pop of color that commands attention. refreshing!
Jourdan and Coco sure know how to work it out!

MAC for Dress Camp

While I have been obsessing and counting the days for 1. MAC for Fafi ( next week) and 2. MAC for Heatherette (in March). I began to feel a bit disenchanted... Why? because 1. I fall victim to the idea of a great collab collection between MAC and (insert designer/collabo here), I see pics and then step back and say..."not what I expected, but ok".
This is the way I feel about Fafi. I was uber excited about the bright lips ( I'm ready and willing to rock the fuschia lips) but now I'm my mind is screaming" Lacroix- the packaging doesn't look to appealing to me ( aka "see it in person to swatch")". Which is what I will now have to do. 2. I don't want to be a repeat offender with Heatherette but I can't wait to see pics ( I have faith in Richie and Travers).

In the meantime, coming up in April is MAC for Dress Camp and Asian exclusive but will be on .
The Specktra preview (courtesy of Rizzer) includes an Eyeshadow/ Beauty powder covetable compact with complementary yellow,peach, bronze and pink shades ( hello spring!); 2 lipglasses- a canary yellow with sparkles and a Jem hotpink with sparkles ( truly outrageous) and a Jem hotpink lippie.
What amazes me about this collabo is it incorporates a shade that hasn't been desired...yellow. Also, MAC hasn't incorporated a collection around the color.. curiosity excites me.

Enough babble.. how about that NY Fashion week?

Rachel Roy-Fall '08

I really like the piece's here Rachel Roy's Fall 08 collection. The wide brim hat to complement the jacket and also the vibrant pumpkin color dress that is reminiscent of the Louis Vuitton Peter Pan dress from Spring '03.

The look: Vampy, sophisticated and colorful. The lips get all the attention and it complements the face so well. The lipstick bear resemblance to MAC's Media.
It makes me dream of falling leaves, sitting in a park and biting into a juicy delicious red apple all the while having perfectly made-up lips... aww, but we haven't even started spring yet.. on with the warm weather!
