Make Up For Ever presents Tres Vichy

Make Up For Ever launches their Spring 2011 collection, Tres Vichy. I love the fun colors they are bright and peppy and perfect for spring. The lashes are absolutely adorable but I don’t know if I could handle a tiny bow in my peripheral vision, I might go crazy.

Rihanna’s Reb’l Fleur commercial is here!

Reb’l Fleur, Rihanna’s new fragrance, shares a name with a tattoo the pop superstar bears on her neck, though which came first is still up for debate.

As for the perfume, which came about thanks to a deal brokered by new manager Jay-Z, it’s being curiously described as “like heels with a short, flirty dress.” (The bottle itself is in the shape of a high heel.) So what does a short, flirty dress smell like? A fruity mix of red berries, plum, peach, coconut water, violet and Hawaiian hibiscus, in reflection of Rihanna’s tropical roots.

Reb’l Fleur will first be available only at Macys (for $49 per pop of the pop star), going on to roll out internationally later this spring.

I love the commercial! It’s mesmerizing.

Just in time for spring come Hourglass Cosmetics’ Aura, water-based, liquid gel stains for cheeks and lips. The pair can be worn together or solo. Either way they imbue the complexion with an ethereal, transparent flush and can be used to simulate the 70s-inspired, Californian look seen on spring runways.
