This shade is only one of 8 new shades released from Elizabeth Arden, and it is PERFECTION (click here for a swatch). It's not Kylie Jenner--esque on its own, but over the top of a dark rose lip liner (my fave), it's super close. If you like a paler lip teamed with smokey eyes, you'll love this shade. I normally find matte formulations a wee bit uncomfortable and drying, but NOT these guys- seriously, they're so lovely! And they last, like absolute crazy- even without a liner. You'll be seeing more of them on my face, on this blog- go & check them out. You will LOVE.
Kim K has always been a babe, but I've got to say;- compared to the somewhat OTT styles she rocked in the past, her current classic, understated style is killing it. Whether it's Kanye's influence or not (it HAS to be), I love the neutral palette of her outfits, the perfectly contoured makeup, and the sleek ponytail that she wears over and over again. This hair style is perfect for those of us with longer hair, especially in summer when humidity can wreak havoc with even the most carefully created styles.
So I tried giving this nudge, and let's just say it requires a little more effort than just scraping your hair back and hoping for the best. My go-to hair care brand Moroccanoil came to my rescue and sent me some products I could use to achieve the look- and the result was MUCH better!
Check out the slideshow below to see which products I used, and how to get the style. If you'd like to win one of the beautiful Moroccanoil products, simply leave a comment telling me which one you'd love to try...and who your fave Kardashian is ;)
If you know me, you'll know I love reality TV. If you REALLY know me, you'll know I love all the Real Housewives shows. These women...they're just so outrageous. But there's one thing about them that I envy (besides their jewellery, their houses, their clothing- you get my drift)- and that is their HAIR. Please examine the two pictures below of Kyle Richards and Joyce Giraud, and tell me that that's not amazing hair right there. Also- it's allllll theirs. I have coveted hair like this for as long as I can remember, and thanks to http://www.loxys.co.nz/, and now products from Moroccanoil- I'm getting there!
