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!!

Estelle Puts It On…..Finally!!

23 July 2008, 14.12 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Music | No comments »

When first I spied Estelle in Kanye’s "American Boy" video, I thought, excellent, here’s a personable, up-and-coming British pop star who’s gonna bring the fashion. But that just didn’t happen. I posted once about her tendency to dress for events like she’s attending church, but bagging on celebs nonstop really isn’t my thing so I just kept it moving when I saw images of her. On that note, I’m happy to report that Estelle actually looked great at a recent concert she did in Brooklyn.

^^Skin is shining, dress is blazing, accessories correct, AND she finally realized the importance of a tight manicure!! Woohoo! Go Estelle! Maybe in Brooklyn she finally got to see what’s good!

Elle Magazine What Happened????

rihanna Elle Magazine What Happened????

Now We have clearly established at Highsnobette that Rihanna can pretty much rock anything and look Fly, And we have also praised the fact that Elle magazine has been rocking great editorials and fashion stories..

How disspointed was I when I finally saw this Cover… I totally dissagree with the outfit choice..No offense to the stylist but dear,this woman has the ability to do so much more than a pouffy dress  and big hoops…(granted the dress is Donna Karan but it could also be forever21!!)Not that forever 21 lacks fashion cred… I made a killing there yesterday shopping for a client…

Nevertheless,the outfits inside the mag were alot better But Come on Elle Mag!!! From Madonna’s Uber May issue cover to this…I can’t …
