WANT IT: Kat Von D Solid Perfume Ring

The Muse never woke up one morning and though, “Gee, I really want to smell like Kat Von D!” but she admits it’s coming to that now. I don’t watch L.A. Ink and I’m not planning on getting ink myself…something about needles that terrify me…but I still find myself stalking everything Kat Von D does with her color cosmetic line and now her brand new fragrance line.

Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer Review and Swatches

It was a pretty crummy Summer around this little city.  Rain almost every weekend, kinda chilly and damp.   I’m still in shock it’s nearly Fall now and really if you’re not officially counting I’d say that New York has already stepped right into the season within a flash of Labor Day being over.

Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer 2

Me?

I adore Fall but I’m so not ready for it.  I’m still re-living my days of Summer especially cosmetic wise.   I can’t just let go of Summer quite yet which is why I’m still enjoying Stila Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer.   The good news is that little touches of Summer are pretty flattering seasonal shades for Fall.  The soft peachy glow of a bronzer will keep your face looking like you just stepped out of the sun but still manages to create an ethereal warmth that can only be associated with the falling leaves.

Jump ahead for a review, some swatches, and a babble or two.

bareMinerals Radiance Rocks Review and Swatches

Some makeup is so terribly pretty.  Gorgeous packaging, delicious colors……but just because it’s pretty doesn’t always mean it’s great.

And so goes the case with the brand new bareMinerals Radiance Rocks Set that I recently purchased from Sephora.

Oh woe is me why can’t I love it?

Take the jump for the review and the cries of nay!

WANT IT: DuWop Private Red Lipstick

DuWop Private Red Lipstick 300x191

Excuse me DuWop but when will your new Private Red Lipstick ever come back into stock at Sephora?

Oh how I yearn for it!

Although I should be ever so tired of the color-changing lipstick and gloss rage I can’t help but feel that special WANT feeling when I laid eyes on DuWop Private Red Lipstick.  The formula adapts to each person’s unique body chemistry and adjusts accordingly to provide a killer perfect red shade.

Yes, yes I do believe it’s been said and done before but I’m laying bets this one could prove more pigmented and gorgeous than all the rest making it the fairest of them all!

Now if Sephora would just listen to my need and get it in stock already.

Available soonish for $22 at Sephora.

Have you tried DuWop Private Red Lipstick?

Is it on your wish list?
