Sultry and bold, dazzle in this black velveteen coat ($138.00) by complimenting it with a pair of luscious deep raspberry red lipstick in Rouge Dior by Dior ($26.00). Add a touch of flush by dusting on a minute amount of pink blush and a more generous dusting of shimmery brown, like in Bobbi Brown’s blush palette ($35.00). Try a glowy bronze like Peachytwist by MAC if you’re feeling less pink that day. Keep eyes simple or go ultra-dramatic with MAC’s Smokey Eye Palette ($36.00). Go bold with a gray smokey eye, or go subtle with a soft wash of Maid of Honor (creamy beige) all over lid and Palatial (taupe) in the crease for definition. Spend time to perfect the skin to give it a good all-over-glow and utilize contouring to streamline the face and give it a natural appearance.
1. Gallery Flocked Velveteen Coat @ Nordstrom for $138.00
2. Bobbi Brown Blush Palette in @ Nordstrom for $35.00
3. MAC Smokey Eye Palette @ Nordstrom for $36.00
4. Dior Lipstick in Rouge Dior @ Nordstrom for $26.00
It’s all about playing up the lips with this coat, which is why we chose such a vibrant red by Dior–and the skin, oh the skin, it needs to be soft, velvety, and absolutely flawless. The combination of the lips and the skin will give you an enviable appearance everywhere you go.
It is not often that I am so powerfully swayed by a product that isn’t MAC right from the get go. I tend to need a bit of coaxing, a bit more temptation to defect from my brand loyalty. Of course, I have several beauty products that I consider staples that are outside of MAC’s scope, so it is not an impossible task, but only the best are up to the challenge. NARS is finding a way back into my heart with their Holiday 2007 collection Siren Song, which features this stunning eyeshadow duo in Balthazar (along with Cheyenne and Violetta). I was immediately drawn to the vibrancy of the duo, especially of the tarnished gold. One swipe, and I was in heaven! I am not as in love with the brown (it is more easily duplicated), but it is an excellent partner for the gold shadow. This is just such an awesome combination for the upcoming holiday season, where golds and bronzes often reign supreme.

What is the most expensive beauty product you’ve bought? What made you shell out the big bucks for it? Was it worth it?
I think my Sephora haul from a few days ago was my most expensive – the Givenchy diamond powder, which I haven’t received yet, so I don’t know! I have bought Dior Addict perfume, which was lovely and worth every penny!
