Lippy Louboutin!!!

Louboutin Lipstick Gold Packaging

So…

Anyone who knows me, knows I love a red lip.  There is nothing more elegant and sexy than red lipstick.  There are so many shades of red, it can be mind-boggling, so you need to know what type of red works for you.  I myself, prefer reds with blue undertones, rather than orange, so can you imagine my excitement, when I discovered that Christian Louboutin now has a lipstick!!! Velvet matte and satin finishes at that! I have yet to see them in person, I’m just thrilled by the fact there’s a Louboutin lipstick!  The red I’ve seen online is called Diva (of course!), which is my kind of red.  There’s also a gorgeous colour called Zoulou, which is a lovely nude; I also love nude lipsticks, my second go to shades.

The colour pictured above is Eton Moi, which is a gorgeous plum/purple.  I was lucky enough to be gifted the Louboutin nail polish for my last birthday, which I’m yet to use, because it is busy being a statement piece on my bookshelf.

I’ve watched a few YouTube videos and the colours really do look amazing.  At $90 they are a splurge; do we need a $90 Louboutin lipstick? No! Do we want a $90 Louboutin lipstick??  YES!! I’m hoping I’ll get lucky again and be gifted this beautifully packaged product (hint, hint!) or maybe a couple of gift cards should do it.  Just the packaging alone is worth it.

A lot of the colours are sold out and you have to pre-order, expected delivery is early November.  I think I’ll take a trip to Saks and take a look and try for myself. Stay tuned for my review of actual product.

Donna Karen Blood Red…

In Object's of Desire on October 15, 2013 at 10:38 am

OK… So I’m browsing the internet hoping to find a dress for a major event I have to attend next month, and I come across this beauty in Donna Karen’s signature body conscious draping.  It is so out of my price range {and not really the style I was looking for at the moment}, but I had to post, because I love it!!! Price tag $1895!!! Available at Neiman Marcus, if you’re so inclined.

Zara copy anyone?

Chanel’s Fashion Night Duo…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on September 5, 2012 at 7:03 am

UPDATE: 9.5.12 ~ The La Provocante lipstick is already sold out on the Chanel website 😦 I’ll keep you posted!

As everyone knows Thursday, September 6, marks the nationwide style event entitled, Fashion Night Out {FNO}.  To all my followers overseas, FNO is a nationwide event, where every style maven, fashion editor, blogger, and chic shopaholic dressed to the nines, will be sipping cocktails, watching fashion shows, and makeup demonstrations, grabbing goodie bags, and of course shopping at the various participating stores.

Chanel is releasing a limited-edition colour collection, called Les Twin-Sets De Chanel to celebrate fashion’s most exceptional evening with three chic duos for lips and nails.  I’m loving the nail colour Provocation and its corresponding lip colour La Provocante {above}, which is a sexy Merlot coloured red; one of the dark sexy colours debuting this season.  This duo is sure to bring out the seductress in you! {click on link for a surprise!}.

Seeing Red…

In Daily Musings on July 11, 2012 at 9:14 am

I love this red dress. This is exactly how I would style it…Simple! This photo reminds me of walking down 5th Avenue in NY {which it probably is} ~ How I miss NY!!

 Red is one of my all time favourites when it comes to colour. Red is hot, and I mean in a sexy way, Red is passion, red is confidence! Red says, I know who I am, do you? Red nails, red lips, red shoes; a slip of a red dress, there’s just something defiant and elegant about the colour of love.  Here’s my collage of seeing red… Here goes!
