Highsnobette- MAC x Hello Kitty

Mac and Hello Kitty have teamed up and created two new lines for spring. The Hello Kitty Colour collection will feature numerous new shades of lipsticks, false lashes, eye shadows, glitter eyeliner, and lots of other goodies.  The second line, Hello Kitty Kouture will feature Swarovski crystal encrusted reusable packaging. The overall look retains classic Hello Kitty qualities mimicking her sometimes sweet and often mischievous personality. So expect lots of bubble gum pinks that have been kicked up a notch with jet black and super bright turquoise, a look that feels at home both at your niece’s birthday party and stumbling out of a club at four A.M.

John Varvatos Artisan

varvatos1 John Varvatos Artisan

So, I have had a serious label crush on John Varvatos, the label, for a while. The clothes are dark, refined, sometimes edgy but never minimalistic cold or stoic .  A little rock n’ roll, five o’clock shadow cool without trying. John Varvatos fragrances consistently reflect that  same aesthetic with  the introduction of a new scent, Artisan.

“Artisan blends state-of-the-art, abstract notes with classic citrus and herbal tones, for a contemporary twist on the traditional cologne. Each flask is housed in a hand-woven rattan, enabling every bottle to have signature intricacies, making each a one-of-a kind creation.”

Flatte Black By Knockout

knockout matte black Flatte Black By Knockout

When the weather changes in NYC like clockwork most nails get dark ,lately it’s been a kind of dark eggplant.Here is an even edgier option Flatte Black by Knock Out:

“Mike Potter, an NYC makeup artist who spent years putting ebony nail polish on big stars (Karen O.) and big screens (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), couldn’t find a truly matte version without any gleam or gloss, so he created Knock Out cosmetics. His addictive Flatte Black nail paint is shiny when wet but dries sans shimmer with one coat. (Imagine the look of fresh charcoal.)”

new year lashes 01 New Year Lashes by Fred Butler

This year I feel like the holidays just happened,usually the excitement of the Holidays is in full force in NYC around this time.But, with the cancellation of alot of parties and celebrations,the mood is not exactly cheery all over the place.The bright side is that 2008 will be over soon and 2009 by it’s last number is indeed a new Year.

Nine being " Neuf "in french,it translates to NEW (as my mom says).To celebate instead of the hast and  or glasses and whistles I might need to do something a little bolder like rock lashes by Fred Butler (above)

New Colors From Nars!

 New Colors From Nars!

Nars just launched two new products, The Multiple Bronzer( my personal fave)  available in different shades. what I like about the" multiple" , is really the texture it’s like a creamy light layer of shine that can be subtle or dramatic, and if you got too happy (i.e. applied too much)it’s easy to fix because it does not stick on the skin like glitter or shimmer can.

And The Multiple Duo combining multi-purpose cult favorite for eyes, lips and cheeks for the first time. Available in four shade combinations. Limited Edition. $45

Nars fall 2008 test run!

nars Nars fall 2008 test run!

For as much as I love the Sun and the summer time, one thing that the change of season encourages is change, darker colors,hot boots, mose layerrs and, if you’re like me , a new set of make- up colors to match the grey days to come…

I had the pleasure of sampling a few of  the items from the Nars Fall 08 Collection just to  give you an idea of what to expect, as a note I have bought make up online, If you know what colors work for you it’s possible!

 Nars fall 2008 test run!

My favorite item was hands down the Bronzer and Blush duo,Sin/Casino we all know what wonders  a bronzer can do when you have not seen the sun in months or when you are in the sun and you just have that Glow…

The good people at Nars have made it easier to include the matching blush, less stuff to cram in that little cosmetics pouch.

The Star Lip Gloss pictured above, Female trouble , a glossy lilac looks great on pale complexions a la Nicole Kidman,or Ziyi Zhang(right), nonetheless ,medium to darker instyle dec2005 zhang ziyi 1 Nars fall 2008 test run!skin tone can pull it of with a subtle darker lipliner, and ccould be a really cool Mod look but…just try it out first …. the texture really is what makes it stand apart it’s light ,stays on ,and has a great shine..

One a side note ,Can we please have some Asian Divas like her on some Magazine Covers and not the same rotation of like 5 actresses!

And last but not least is the Eye Shadow duo Rebecca with a Kiwi and amber color  Nars fall 2008 test run!that really works on all skin tones in various degrees,if you’re lighter you can wear lots of it , if you’re darker I suggest a lighter hand.

Make-up  is really fun,all you have to do is take a risk,be  bold and just dare!

Happy Monday!

Thx Erika!!
