Congratulations to our winner Melanie C. !

The extremely popular Brazilian nail color brand, Impala, is now available in the US, both online and in select retail locations. This line includes holos, glitters, mattes and more, at just $4.99 a bottle! The polish is loved not only for the great color selection but for the quick drying, no smudge formula.

Impala has a broad range of quick-drying polishes in almost every color imaginable, with effects from glitter to 3D holographic to matte! The polishes are also 3-free and many of them are hypoallergenic. They’re available on the Mundial website, as well as select stores in the US.

A little more about the parent company of Impala, Mundial:

Our hearts are breaking…

I’m sitting here trying to work, and I’m having a hard time focusing on anything other than what’s happening in Connecticut. My heart is breaking for everyone in Connecticut. What has happened to us as a nation? From what I’ve seen, they’re saying almost 30 people are dead, and half of them are children. Early reports suggest it was the father of a child who attended the school. Unbelievable tragedy. Unbelievable.

I am praying so hard for each and every single person involved.

:(

UPDATE: I’m gonna take a break from posting for a bit. It seems horrible/wrong to continue talking about fluff and entertainment on such a tragic day. We’ll be back shortly…

Mini Makeup Maven Talia Castellano Becomes an Honorary CoverGirl

Talia Castellano, a 13-year-old from Florida who is battling two forms of cancer, has become an internet sensation with her makeup tutorials.

CoverGirl has made the young girl an honorary CoverGirl, which was announced on the Ellen Degeneres show this afternoon.

The current roster of CoverGirls reads like a who’s-who list of Hollywood beauties: Taylor Swift, Drew Barrymore, Sofia Vergara, Ellen DeGeneres, Queen Latifah and more.

The freshest face to represent the cosmetics brand, however, isn’t a leading lady you’ve seen on the big screen or on the stage. But maybe she’s inspired you — either to switch up your eye shadow routine, or even just smile.

Love it!

Laura Mercier at Marchesa Spring/Summer 2013

I just love Marchesa, the beautiful creations Karen Craig and Georgina Chapman that tend to the dramatic and whimsical. With lots of chiffon and lace, if I could play dress up this would be the closet! Marchesa Spring/Summer 2013 is simply stunning an interpretation of Indian glam and edgy romance.

 The models looked amazing thanks to lead makeup artist Talia Shobrook of Laura Mercier and her look “inspired by India in the 1960’s”.


Marchesa: Spring/Summer 2013 Collection
Look created by Talia Shobrook for Laura Mercier
Talia Shobrook, lead makeup artist for this season’s Marchesa show, complemented the red carpet designer’s glamorous collection by creating a makeup look inspired by “India in the 1960s.”

Flawless Face: The look started with flawless, “illuminated skin.”
· Talia first prepped skin with Laura Mercier Repair Oil-Free Day Lotion SPF 15 ($95) and Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating ($32).

· She then mixed Laura Mercier Moisture Supreme Foundation ($43) and Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 ($43) and applied the blend all over the face to create an illuminated base.

· Next, she concealed problem areas with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage ($30).

· Finally, Talia contoured cheekbones and forehead with Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Dune Bronze ($32).

Enchanting Eyes: Gold specs highlighted the “opulence of the collection,” while “black opaque liner along the lower lashes modernized the makeup look.”
· Talia first gently applied Laura Mercier Eye Basics in Wheat ($24) across the lid, and then contoured the crease of the eye using Laura Mercier Bronzing Pressed Powder in Dune Bronze ($32).

· Using the Laura Mercier Tightline Cake Eye Liner in Black Ebony ($22) and Laura Mercier Tightline Activator ($20), she drew a clean, straight line across the lower lash line.

· Talia then applied a coat of Laura Mercier Long Lash Mascara in Black ($24) to the top and bottom lashes.

· She finished the look by placing specs of gold leaf in the inner corner of the eye.

Simple Lips: Subtle mocha lips “fit for a 1960s Indian goddess” completed the look.
· Talia applied Laura Mercier Hydratint SPF 15 in Mocha Tint ($20) to the lips.
