MAC launches new campaign for MAC’s, Reel Sexy line!

Here’s the new ad for MAC’s newest line, Reel Sexy. The new line offers bright and bold colors, I’m thinking MAC fans will love!

The line offers four lipsticks, “Heroine”, “Pink Popcorn”, “Reel Sexy” and “Watch Me Simmer”. (GO HERE for the rest of the collection)

“The curtains part. The room darkens. The projector starts. Who’s the Reel star? On the screen…or in the audience? Is it better to watch or be watched? Discover the take on Reel Sexy from our Senior Vice President and Creative Director, James Gager here.

Our main feature – a cinematic drama starring Ms. Kristen McMenamy, supported by an entire cast of limited edition Dynamic Duo Eye Shadows, Nail Lacquers, Cremesheen Glass and Mineralize Skinfinish – sublime! Rave reviews all around!”

I’m not a huge fan of these colors. There aren’t many women who could pull these off (except maybe the lipsticks). What do you think? Love or hate the new line?

Vera Wang is launching a cosmetics line!

I totally loooooooooooove Vera Wang. I love her clothing line at Kohl’s, I also love her home collection. She has great taste! Seems almost fitting that she would venture into the cosmetics world.

Today it was announced that Vera will be launching her own cosmetics line, which will debut exclusively at Kohl’s.

In conjunction with the BeautyBank division of the Estée Lauder Cos. Inc., Wang will release a 74 piece collection in April as part of the Simply Vera Vera Wang brand she has with the retailer.

“It completes my Kohl’s universe,” the designer told WWD. “Also, a pop of color is such a gorgeous way to let your natural beauty shine through.It’s the ultimate accessory.”Wang promises that each product is a combination of color and treatment, since she believes strongly in the maintenance of one’s skin.

What can we expect from her next? Wang says her daughters are nudging her to do a nail polish line. “It’s an obsession in my home,” she said. We’ll be looking forward to it!

Can’t wait to see it!

Rihanna reveals the secret to her glowing skin, and it’s a product I love and use everyday!

Rihanna has revealed the secret behind her beautiful skin, and it’s a product that I’ve come to love myself!

Priced at $57, the Perfekt Skin Perfection gel is a must-have for the singer. Already a favorite with Hollywood stars including Reese Witherspoon, Goldie Hawn and Jennifer Hudson.

According to the 24-year-old’s makeup artist Mylah Morales, the product, which is an alternative to powder and blush, helps give you a youthful, smooth look. ‘Skin Perfection Gel which preps skin for make-up application and leaves it radiant and refreshed with a hint of colour,’ she told Female First.

The product – which should be applied to the cheekbones, forehead and the bridge of the nose – is available in two different shades and helps boost natural skin colour.

The manufacturers claim that the ingredient Niacin (Vitamin B3) helps to increase circulation, while antioxidants caffeine, Vitamins A and E protect from premature skin aging.

Jennifer Hudson previously said: ‘I love this stuff… I mix the Per-fékt Skin Perfecting Gel in Rich with a little moisturizer and apply it all over my face as a base.

It’s what I grab when I’m getting ready to be a diva!’

Per-fékt was founded by U.S. entrepreneur Richard Anderson, who previously worked with leading beauty brands including Yves Saint Laurent and Bobbi Brown.

He said: ‘Today’s modern, on-the-go woman doesn’t have the time to apply a concealer, then colour corrector, then primer, then foundation and then powder.

‘I created my products with her mind.’

I absolutely LOVE this product. I’ve been using it for years, and it’s definitely a MUST-HAVE for me. If you haven’t tried it yet, you definitely owe it to yourself to give it a try. The nice thing about Sephora (link below) is if you buy it – and you don’t love it – you can return it!
