Dawn & Storm

Glossier launched new Cloud Paint colors!

If you aren’t familiar – Cloud Paint is gel cream blush and it’s literally the easiest blush to apply and looks extremely natural. Your skin, but better!

Dawn is a sunny coral – this is the most orange hue and it reminds me of a beachy summer.

Storm is a warm rose – definitely a deeper tone but looks surprisingly well once it’s blended in to different skin tones.

I’m wearing both here, can you tell which shade is on which cheek?!

If you’re already a Cloud Paint wearer, these are must have shades to add to your collection!

Glossier is currently running a sale – 2 Cloud Paints at a discounted rate – perfect to shop both new shades or one new one and a different shade you’ve never tried!

My fave of all time is Dusk and I’m loving mixing Dawn & Storm in with my daily look!

Lash Slick

Today is launch day for Glossier!

Glossier is FINALLY releasing its long awaited mascara, Lash Slick!

I received this product earlier this week, and have been trying it for a few days already. I really love it for an everyday mascara.

FYI: I usually like a high volume mascara and have been 100% devout to Chanel Le Volume for several years. Different brush from what I’m used to – but into it!

Check my video, I feel like a YouTube girl, but I didn’t say any words, woops! No words needed – Lash Slick speaks for itself!

Description: Lash Slick does not clump, it goes on extremely easy, does not flake, and feels very natural on the eye, aka no sticking!

Lash Slick wears great throughout the day – I have not noticed any particles flaking off my lashes as I move through my day. No smudging under my eyes that I need to wipe away (even when I wear oil as a moisturizer). & Even after working out!

Removal was rather easy as well – nothing more than my usual! Comes off with Milky Jelly Cleanser and warm water – a bit more easy than my Chanel Le Volume mascara typically does. After Milky Jelly, I typically use a makeup wipe to get the remaining black under eye makeup off – works perfect! Going forward, I’ll absolutely be working Lash Slick into my daily routine. Ace!

Below you can see Lash Slick on only one of my eyes for comparison… ๐Ÿ‘€

LIDSTAR

Lidstar by Glossier launched today and wow! Beautiful, shimmery, lightly pigmented color. I’m not typically an eye shadow wearer… only on special occasions or a night out (rare, lately!). However, I could see myself bringing some of these shades into my everyday routine to give myself a pick-me-up midway through the work week.

Lidstar formula is crease free. This is a huge win for me because it is a part of the reason I don’t wear eyeshadow more often. Also because it typically transfers or falls down my face after a few hours of wear. I am really feeling this formula; the quality feels so rich and doesn’t feel like I’m wearing anything TBH. Even better. Love.

Glossier sent me Fawn, Herb, Moon and Lily (swatched on my forearm Kylie Jenner style above). Just ordered Cub and Slip today to finish off my collection of 6. There’s a great deal if you shop with me now for a 2 piece Lidstar bundle + 20% off your first order if you’re shopping with me. Link here!

Also- how cute is the name? Very ethereal. Let me know what Lidstar shades you’re interested in! DM me on Instagram if you have any questions.

Perfume Solids are a THING again.

I honestly don’t know if they were ever “out of style,” but everything Glossier touches comes into style. The signature scent “You” is now available in a solid perfume. And its chic. And its fits in your hand perfectly, similar to how the bottle is meant to be shaped perfectly for a hand.

It’s a weighted metal compact. Love a compact moment. Love products that have a “play with me” factor. The solid perfume is a creamy, silky, soft texture and I’m really into it.

This scent is flattering and lovable on so many different people I’ve met. Friends and family are telling me often how much they love my fragrance. So much positive feedback about this fragrance, I wear YOU everyday! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Things Iโ€™m Into

Little bit of what I’ve been up to lately. Lovely breakfast at Sunday in Brooklyn. The farmhouse decor gives me feel good vibes. Overall v cool place to go with friends or on a date.

Pancakes ๐Ÿฅž yum. You know when you eat some bougie breakfast that’s hyped so hard and you’re expecting it to be the most amazing thing you’ve ever put to your lips? Yeah. This was okay. Should’ve tried something else. Very decadent, but too malty and chocolatey for me. Looks amazing though!

Some easy car shopping at McLaren. LOL just kidding. This Mirawai White color though, looks gorgeous. I want all of the things in this color. Blue white. Into it.

Wowder! By Glossier

My go-to beauty brand, Glossier just launched Wowder! Not a powder. 

It’s not your ordinary setting powder. Leaves no white-cast and is offered in 3 sheer shades. I’m a Glossier rep, and was gifted the Light/Medium shade. I’m a huge fan of a setting powder even though I haven’t used one in over a year. 


STORYTIME! 

I fell in love with a setting powder called Moonshot by a Korean beauty brand that discontinued making it. Originally published in Emily Weiss’ Top Shelf, I became hooked after trying it. I ordered 2 and used them like they were going out of style. Once I ran out, I freaked out after not being able to find more. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Nothing available on the black market (eBay).

In early May I talked to Emily Weiss about my troubles and not being able to find any replacements.  Her reply was “I got you.” 

Lo and behold, “she got me!” This is that powder. But nicer because it’s available in more shades! I’m obsessed. This does everything I want it to do. I use it on day where I don’t want that glossy look. When I’m over looking shiny. 

It looks amazing in photos! So you don’t look shiny or have a flash on your face. But also doesn’t make you look cakey either! Complete game changer. 

Love taking photos of Glossier products because they’re beautiful! ๐Ÿ˜

Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2016

Feeling extremely fortunate to have attended the Marc Jacobs Fall Winter 2016 fashion show at NYFW this past month. The show was held at the Park Avenue Armory uptown, where the space was recreated into a perfect stark white room to juxtapose the dark, smokey looks that walked the runway.

Working with both Marc Jacobs RTW Collection Design and Production teams at MJ HQ allowed me to literally see first hand how intricate, detailed and beautiful the creative process is. So many long hours of hard work and dedication by so many exceptionally talented people. As they say, “it takes a village.” And this village resides at 72 Spring Street in downtown Manhattan.

The buildup to the show was intense, as all fashion shows are and as any deadline can be. Viewing this season from sketches and ideas to swatches of fabrics and furs; from samples of trim being assembled and buttons hand sewn on to the final pieces that walked the runway was absolutely unreal. Getting a sneak peak of Kendall Jenner on Tuesday and Wednesday night’s in preparation for Thursday’s show was super cool / aka fangirl-ing.

Kendall’s Look – No Peeking!

Check her super cute Vogue NYFW video here:

Lady Gaga totally killed in the MJ show as well – completely unsuspected surprise by basically everyone. See more in the MJ video above. Her look is rad, although she looks pretty crazy in this photo.

One of my favorite jackets / looks was the collabo with Canada Goose – I watched somebody take a perfectly beautiful Canada Goose down jacket and cut it in half… to create the beautiful crop jacket with feathers pictured below on the left. I can’t get over it and I want one ASAP. So like, think of me next Christmas when you’re shopping. And Molly Bair completely SLAYED the final look of the show in the photo below right.

Some more of my favorite looks from the show are:

The show had a gothic yet sweet vibe and everything was dynamically opposed. Oversize, yet barely there. Every model was in sky high platforms that I’m already coveting.

Gracious to have been a part of a truly magical production of Marc Jacobs NYFW 2016. Catch more Marc Jacobs here.
