Pucker Up It’s National Lipstick Day…

Hello Darlings!

In honour of National Lipstick Day 2014, I had to post one of my absolute favourites, which I have posted here before.  I absolutely love Tom Ford’s Cherry Lush, which is my all time favourite red to wear, when I’m in the mood.

Another favourite colour of mine is Laura Mercier’s Dusk, which just this second, I’ve found out has been discontinued!! I’ve found it on Fragrance.net (click link above).  I must have it! Dusk was the perfect pink, with a mauve hue, when you just needed a little something.  I normally layer this colour with Touch (above) by MAC which is also one of my go to nudes.

Whatever colour you decide to wear, pucker up, wear it confidently, and be the amazing Sylista you truly are.

Remember to live life with passion!

I’m Going Naked Again…

In Daily Musings on November 21, 2013 at 10:08 am


Naked 3

It’s the one we’ve been waiting for and it’s finally here!!!  The release of Urban Decay’s Naked 3.  Just by the photos alone, this palette looks gorgeous.  The much-anticipated release of Naked 3, contains 12 shades of rose hued neutrals, from the palest, shimmery pink to the deepest black matte with red micro-glitter, which I think will look fantastic on practically all skin tones.  Urban Decay never disappoints with their cosmetics, and the Naked range have become huge best sellers, and very popular among women in the know.

I’m looking forward to owning this new collection, it will make a fabulous stocking filler, hint, hint

Purchase yours at Urban Decay ~ $52.00

Clinique Eyes…

Clinque Lash Doubling Mascara, Clinique, #Clinique, #lashdoublingmascara

People compliment me all the time on my eyelashes {Thank you!}.  I am blessed with naturally long eyelashes, but I will be the first to admit, I also get a lot of help from Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara.  I don’t know what’s in this silver tube, but it’s nothing short of magic. It truly does lengthen and thicken your lashes, without making you look as though you have two gigantic moths stuck to your  eyes.

The potion in this magic tube, lasts all day, and comes off easily with eye make- up remover or your favourite cleanser {I use Burt’s Bees Soap Bark and Camomile Cleanser).

For me, Clinque’s Lash Doubling Mascara is worth every penny of its $16.00.  Available at most department stores, and at Clinique.com

Rhianna Red Sold Out!!!

In Daily Musings on May 2, 2013 at 5:59 pm

RiRi Woo Lipstick

RiRi Woo, the MAC lipstick shade created in collaboration with Rihanna, sold out online in three hours {is that a first?}. I love red lipsticks, and I must say, this is a truly gorgeous deep red.  My favourite MAC lipstick is actually called ” MAC Red”; this new red, could become a favourite of mine from the MAC cosmetics range.  Apparently, there’s a long wait list; in the meantime my Tom Ford Cherry Lush will just have to do!

The Many Colours Of Tom Ford…

In Daily Musings, Object's of Desire on November 26, 2012 at 2:53 pm

 

I haven’t written an Objects Of Desire post in a little while, but here’s one that caught my attention a few days ago.  Mr. Tom Ford has released a complete set of his beautiful nail lacquers exclusively for Neiman Marcus priced at $480.00! 

This  exclusive 16 colour set has every possible shade you would ever need to carry your chic wardrobe from now to next spring/summer to enhance your chic wardrobe.  Tom Ford nail lacquers retail for approximately $30 dollars each; why would you buy a $30 nail lacquer?  Because you’re absolutely worth it! Again this is an Object of Desire, so maybe Santa will leave this under the tree for you, if you’ve been good this year.

Visit Neiman Marcus here

Well today is back to work Monday, after our long 4 day weekend. This is the real countdown to Christmas; how is your gift buying going?  Have you started? Are you going to wait until christmas eve; or are you just buying a little something for you?

Have yourselves a Positive, Productive and Exhilarating week!

 

{From The Archives} I’m Going Naked 2…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 9, 2012 at 7:53 am

This is an article I posted back in February 2012 {now slightly revised}; I decided to repost, because I thought these colours would be gorgeous for autumn, and also, at the time of writing, my blog was only a month old 🙂

No I’m not going that naked!! But Naked 2 by Urban Decay. It’s one of the best and hottest eyeshadow palettes… EVER!  This has been the most anticipated sequel to the original Naked Palette, the stores could barely keep it on the shelves, when the original came out, and can you believe there was a waitlist for this one!

With the Naked palettes you can literally create hundreds of beautiful eyeshadow combinations, you can mix them, use each on its own, do whatever your creative heart desires.  Well I’ve finally got mine and I’m very happy. If you’re anything like me, treating yourself is always a happy occasion, worthy of a celebration.

If you’re looking for a Naked Palette tutorial for a smokey eye click here

The original Naked consisted of 12 neutral shades which included colours to create the smokey eye look.  The new palette consists of 12 Taupes and what they are calling “Greige” neutrals. I also love the names of the colours, Booty Call, Tease, Suspect, you get the drift.  Urban Decay has done it again!  Beautiful colours and  beautiful packaging; this set would also make a chic holiday gift.  $50.00 at Urban Decay, Sephora {click links to shop}, and other stores. Go get yours!!

Enter Mr. Reggie Wells…

In Daily Musings on September 24, 2012 at 8:11 am

While getting my bi-weekly haircut on Saturday, which at this point was actually at 3 weeks (busy, busy), who should walk into the salon, but Emmy award-winning make-up artist, Mr. Reggie Wells himself! Who is Reggie Wells? some of you may ask; Mr. Wells was Oprah Winfrey’s makeup artist for 20 plus years!

He was an absolute darling and a pleasure to talk to and was so down to earth with no airs and graces.  Reggie had us all rolling with laughter within 15 minutes of his arrival.  Reggie has worked with all the major stars including: Chaka Khan, Diahann Carroll, Oprah Winfrey, Iman, Whitney Houston, and more.  Unfortunately I was unable to take a pic with him, though he was willing; but I was smack in the middle of my haircut and colour and he had to leave.  So here is my photo of Mr. Reggie Wells and Mr. Duvall who is the owner of the salon.

Can you believe Mr Duvall is 82 years young!! He is one of the sharpest business men I know, with amazing stories of Washington, DC in the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.  To read more about Reggie’s time with Oprah click here.

Mr. Wells is also the International Creative Director of Australia’s beauty brand Hissyfit.  Hissyfit is the brainchild of Australia’s Olympic gold medalist Louise Dobson and former magazine editor Sue Smethurst.  To see more on Hissy Fit click on the link.

Wishing you an amazing and productive week.  Smooches!

Boosh…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on July 10, 2012 at 9:51 am

 

Update 7.10.12 ~ sweetofstyle  just informed me that she saw the Illamasqua range in Sephora here in the U.S., I’ve just checked and she is absolutely right.  For those of us living in the States, we are also able to get our  Illamasqua Boosh (or other fabulous colour) fix.  Visit a Sephora store or order online. http://www.sephora.com/nail-varnish-P241720

Yesterday, I discovered the most amazing nail polish by a company based in London called Illamasqua.  The colour that drew my attention was this gorgeous glossy black called Boosh {don’t you just love that name?}.  I love black nail polish.  If you want to make a statement, a beautiful high shine black manicure {and/or pedicure} always does the trick.

Go to Illamasqua’s website, the colours available are simply stunning, and come in a spectrum of bold shades with a range of finishes.  Although sold in the UK, there is free shipping to the U.S. with orders over £75  (approx. $116).  My sister is using a colour called Rampage, which is a dark khaki green… Simply Gorgeous! There’s also a huge make-up range which is very popular with my fellow UK  divas.

See more colours here: http://www.illamasqua.com/shop/products/nails/nail-varnishes/boosh-nail-varnish

Happy polishing!
