Recently I was privileged enough to enjoy a complementary O.P.I. manicure. I chose one of their new spring shades, Done Out in Deco, or what I refer to as Easter egg purple. It’s the perfect pastel, just in time for spring, and looks nothing less than adorable on. Get your nails did y’all.

dolce trio Universal Red Lips at Dolce & Gabbana

Having dabbled in the world  of make up artistry, I have found that regardless of  skin tone there is a universal fear among women of red lipstick. Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall’09  make-up look  provides a great example of a red lip done well. The trick is to  find a flattering red, keep the face neutral , while still emphasizing the eyes and cheekbones.

A closer look at Jourdan Dunn, Siri Tollerød and Liu Wen  on the next page.

 yoyo toutes Yoyo Lip Gloss ....Never at a Loss for My Gloss

As illustrated by Lil mama, lip gloss can be a vital tool in young girls journey into womanhood. To remediate to  the sense of loss girls can feel in loosing  their favorite lipgloss,  Angie Parlionas, a new york native created YoYo lip gloss in 2003.  A  lip gloss attached to a yoyo string that never leaves the hip or bag where it’s attached.

The retractable glosses come in 5 different colors/flavors  illustrated by 5 gals who have their own myspace pages:  A baseball player,  a stylish cool gal, a break dancer, cheerleader and my fave,  a deejay.

As an adult tough, it’s still possible to be peeved  about loosing your favorite designer lipstick or gloss at a club or a concert , you might wanna snatch a couple of these  next time you hit the drugstore or make your little sister always has a stash you can ” borrow” from.
