This is a Twitter Giveaway, so it is extremely easy to enter–just two simple steps!
The sale is going on now at HauteLook! Looks like they have a good variety of products available to choose from, and after a cursory glance, looks like most products are 50% off. I still haven’t gotten a chance to try the DDF products I bought last time they were on HauteLook so I’m gonna pass today.
(The link above is an invite-link, which is a referral link. HauteLook has opened up membership, so you are free to sign up on your own, if you wish! )
I’ve always heard a TON of good things about their Medi-Matte Lotion, so I think I’m gonna pick some up myself and see what the buzz is about…
When you join from our invite link, you will receive $5 (and I will receive $5, to be clear) when you make you first purchase. Also, it also helps us track how many people we’ve turned onto The Fairest and let’s us (and The Fairest!) know more about the Power of Temptalia.
Share your favorite DDF & Cosmedicine products in the comments!
P.S. – The Fairest is currently only shipping to U.S. residents right now. If and when anything changes, I’ll definitely pass the word along!
Today’s lip look is simple and yet elegant–a play on the timeless red lip.
Starting with the epitome of luxe lips, begin by layering Guerlain Giovanna Rouge G Lipstick on lips with a stiff lip brush to ensure well-defined, clean color. Finish by adding a glossy sheen using Borghese Chianti B Gloss. The Chianti gloss plays down the copper shimmer and frost finish of Giovanna lipstick by adding a more raspberry color, but it doesn’t add so much darkness that it nullifies the red color of Giovanna.
September 10th–the first day of NY Fashion Week–marks this year’s Fashion’s Nigth Out. It’s a night that celebrates fashion with a global initiative designed to promote retail and restore consumer confidence. Aside from some of the lovely festivities going on, a Fashion’s Night Out t-shirt is available with 40% of proceeds being donated to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. A city-wide Clothing Drive is also occurring where donated clothing will be given to the NYC AIDS Fund.
Here is just a preview of FNO ’09 (NYC) happenings…
Sonia Kashuk Secret Admirer Eyeshadow Duo ($6.99) is a stunning duo of shimmery violet-lilac and a softer, matte pale lilac. Both shades run cool, but with the right pairing of warmer or more neutral shades, can easily be worn by most. I’ve always found Sonia Kashuk to be a brand that is reliable and affordable, and this eyeshadow duo lives up to that expectation. Both shades are well pigmented and don’t require lots of layering to get color pay off. Big thumbs up for eyeshadow on a budget!
Ease of Use: 8/10
Recommendation: If you’re on a budget but are jonesing for some eyeshadow, Sonia Kashuk has you covered!
