Bobbi Brown Denim & Rose Collection for Fall 2010

“Everyone looks great in jeans–and anyone can pull off a dark denim eye. To make it wearable, I’ve paired inky blue shadows with pretty roses for lips and cheeks. The combination is casual and put-together, rock& roll but romantic, and modern yet classic all at once.” — Bobbi Brown

NARS Oasis Blush

NARS Oasis Highlighting Blush

It actually looks like a rather muddy mess of pink, berry, and gold shimmer in the pan, but it’s quite beautiful when applied onto skin.  It really doesn’t look gorgeous in the pan, as many blushes often do, but don’t judge a book by its cover.  On skin, it becomes a rosy berry mauve with soft flecks of gold shimmer-glitter (not quite glitter, but larger than glitter!). The pigmentation is excellent, and like many NARS blushes, a light hand is a must!  (In fact, you may want to use a stippling brush or have a buffer brush on hand for diffusion of color.)

Despite being neutral to neutral-cool, it wears well on my warmer skin tone (which may be a little tanner, since I spent the weekend outdoors, though I was lathered in SPF for sure!) and is a great alternative to starkly cool pink blushes for those with stronger warm undertones.  There is some glittery bits in this blush, but it’s not overwhelming and doesn’t even seem to translate onto cheeks at all (just seems to disappears into a magical puff of glittery smoke and mirrors!), but cheeks do have a soft, subtle luminous sheen–that doesn’t emphasize pores–when all is said and done.

Guerlain Couleurs Collection for Fall 2010

Ecrin 6 Couleurs / Precious Eyeshadows – Tailored Harmonies

For the first time at Guerlain, the Ecrin 6 Couleurs offers a range of three different textures, in each of its harmonies: Iridescent formula (miniscule particles of mother-of-pearl play with the light for intense, coloured radiance and a subtly metallic finish), matt formula (skin-effect matt finish and softness that elegently contrast with the iridescence of mother-of-pearl), and satiny (its velvety, glide-on feinish leaves the eyelids soft and delicate). It uses Moonstone, a precious stone, for its silvery or blue reflections, with adularescence phenomenon, which occurs when the stone moves.

  • 68 Champs-Elysees Universal and legendary, because all women are one woman: the Guerlain woman; precious brown, gradations of brown, beige, intense and vibrant violet

How I Organized My Nail Polish, Part 2

Organized chaos!

How I Organized My Nail Polish, Part 2

Over the weekend, I decided it was time to re-organize my nail polish stash and put it back to rights! (The last time I did this was almost exactly six months ago!) I’m still using the exact same method: Clear Storage Boxes from The Container Store–shoe box size. (I also use all of the various sizes of the clear storage boxes for *everything*!)  I thought I’d share an update, since I know some of us enjoy a peek into each other’s stashes. :)

The way I started was by pulling bottles from one brand at a time, lined them all up, and then sorted them by color on the floor. After I’ve sorted by brand and color, I put each one (standing up) in the container. Depending on how full the container is, if there is any room for the polishes to slide around, I fold up a piece of bubble wrap and place it along the side.  I also turn some bottles upside down to fit the last few remaining of the brand in the same box, too.  I stack all of the filled containers on top of each other, about eight high (around four feet in height).

For brands that I don’t have too many shades of, then I try to combine them with similar-shaped bottles or brands. Barielle, Dashing Diva, and Duri have very, very similar bottle shapes, so I keep those together. I keep my higher-end polishes like Chanel and Dior together as well. I also keep base, fast drying, and top coats separate (along with other treatment products) in a separate container so I can easily access them as I need to.

I know that a lot of people have found Ikea Helmers to work well for storing nail polish, but I don’t have a good place for them in my apartment, and I don’t really dig the look and feel myself. Maybe one day when I have more room, I’ll be able to find a classier organization system! My dream is to have California Closets re-do a room and give it a freestanding beauty and makeup organization makeover…
