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!

Lady Gaga says mint is in – do you agree?

Lady Gaga posted this message (along with the above picture) on her Facebook page: “I told you MINT would be big in fashion this spring. Naturally, I will continue to wear black. (perpetual mourner) Getting ready for Harvard. Mother is asking me for fashion advice, little does she know I stole her look. #BTWFoundation”

InStyle is also chiming in on mint.

If the idea of wearing bold color on your lids give you pause, check out Ginnifer Goodwin at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. We love the swipe of pale mint shimmer that starts heavily in her inner eye and covers her entire lid. The key ingredient is to concentrate on the lower lid, not the brow bone. Goodwin also illuminated her undereye by gliding a highlighter beneath and adding a few false lashes at the top. This made the entire eye a statement. Take your cue from Goodwin and play down the rest of your makeup when your eyes are this bright.

So what’s the verdict? Would you wear mint?


L’Oreal’s 24-hour eye shadow – what’s the verdict?

I was watching TV this afternoon, when I saw a commercial for L’Oreal’s Infallible 24 Hour Eye Shadow. I thought to myself, do we reeeealllly need a 24-hour eye shadow? Who keeps their makeup on that long? Don’t we all know how horrible it is to go to bed with makeup on?

I have to say, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt. I haven’t tried it. But I’ve also not run into any point in my life where I’ve said “Gee, if only my eye shadow lasted a FULL 24 hours!”

Here’s what L’Oreal has to say:

I thought this was such a strange idea, I decided to ask you guys:
