Make Up For Ever Lab Shines

Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lip Gloss

A new range of 35 lip glosses is now available at the Make Up For Ever Boutique in NYC (tell them Temptalia sent you, LOL!). There are three finishes: Diamond, Star, and Metal. The Diamond Collection utilizes Make Up For Ever’s Diamond Powder for a shimmering, glittery shine. The Star Collection is blended with Make Up For Ever’s Star Powder for a mother-of-pearl finish. The Metal Collection utilizes Make Up For Ever’s Metal Powder for a chrome, mirror finish.  Each will retail for $18.

All three finishes boast pearl pigments that reflect and refract light for exceptional shine. A combination of hyaluronic acid and Camelina oil add moisture to the lips and improve elasticity, while beeswax and tetraester create a non-sticky texture that effortlessly glides onto the lips.

ORLY Plastix Collection for Fall 2010

ORLY Plastix Collection for Fall 2010

ORLY, the company that continually pioneers the Nail Lacquer arena with the most cutting edge colors, technology and textures, introduces the Plastix Collection. Complementing the Fall 2010 runway looks that featured bright neon colors amid shiny black plastic, latex, and rubber reinventions of vintage must-haves, Plastix evokes the vintage classic trend with four new lacquers and a unique new formula that coats the nails with a smooth glossy matte “plastic” finish. The exclusive finish and texture is a first in the nail category, delivering a monochromatic, shiny and rubbery look that takes experimentation to an entirely new level, with the focus being on both the distinctive nail surface, as well as the latest in color trends. The unique look can not be achieved with color alone as the finish is a must for recreating the true “plastic” statement.
