Was I the only person to wake up and find out about this collection today as in wake up and be a few hours late..ridiculousness! As most know, Rihanna is the first person, (not just celebrity) to partner with MAC cosmetics and unlike every limited edition line hers not only sells out immediately but this is her third collection for the popular icon. The perks of being a partner huh!
▪2 eye shadow palettes: Two Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow palettes “Phresh Out” and “2x Dare” both include a very small range of cold nudes($44)
▪2 liquid liners: Which is her first collection to include eyeliner, “Pisces Persuasion” is a white and “Cockiness” which a pretty rose gold($20.50)
▪3 lipsticks: Rihanna’s signature “RiRi Woo,” which has been included in all the “RiRi Hearts MAC” collections, as well as two new colors: “Pleasure Bomb,” a gorge matte fuchsia, and “Bad Girl RiRi,” which is a darker matte nude ($16.50)
▪1 bronzer: “Love, Rihanna” ($30)
▪1 nail lacquer: Rihanna’s first-ever nail polish, “RiRi Woo,” matches her iconic lipstick ($17.50)
▪1 double-ended brush with the new rose gold on white packaging ($35)
▪1 makeup bag: The “RiRi MAC Make-Up Bag” is a quilted metallic pinky rose ($40)
Ms. RiRi has been named the newsiest spokesperson which means this is not the last of her partnership with MAC as we will see at least one shade of lipstick and lip gloss, excuse me lip glass, maybe another chance to get your hands on “RiRi Woo”!
*Collection limited to North America
I found this face mask on My Yellow Sandbox’s blog a few months back and the reviews on it are amazing! This particular DIY facial mask gives you great results in only a few weeks(or days) depending how many acne scars you have, trying this out myself seemed like a huge barrier to tackle but wash’t as bad as I thought it would be. Please let me know if you have tried this mask and the results you had!
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 2 teaspoon lemon juice(can vary, feel the burn)
Mix all ingredients into a thick paste. Apply all over face for around a hour, if it burns too much…THEN SUCK IT UP! Kidding of course, you can wear this mask for as long as you want just remember the more lemon juice you squeeze into the mix the more it will burn.
*For more sensitive skin leave out the lemon juice, it will hurt and peel more skin than necessary.
If you are a huge beauty fanatic as I am then you may have heard a few rumors and have been wandering Sephora’s website looking for evidence but it’s true, a third Naked palette has been created!
The Naked palettes have been top sellers from the ever so popular Urban Decay and have even inspired an entire Naked line for the brand which include a basic palette, a blush, highlighter bronzer set, lipstick/liner, etc. But compared to the brand’s previous Naked palettes, the third has more of a rosy to taupe pretty neutral feel to it and even though there is a black shade it seems not to overpower the other soft colors. So yes, you would still be able to create the infamous smokey eye look if necessary, the excitement is overwhelming..I know. You can now purchase the palette on these sites Urban Decay, Sephora and Ulta, it’s a Christmas miracle!!!!!!!!
YouTube beauty guru Annie Jaffery creates an awesome look for any time and any season with this gold neutral makeup tutorial. Check out her blog here!

Since I am writing an article on a new line by Christian Louboutin I wanted to check on something I read a couple of years back and found that I still have the same reaction to the news this day. As everybody knows, Loubs are known for their lacquered red soles, yet in 2011 a lawsuit was filed by the man himself to sue the equally popular fashion and beauty brand, YSL, who used or in other words “violated” the companies trademark on a few shoes in their newest collection. And in the end of it all…….he lost.
As of today, the Louboutin brand is world renowned and loved by many. Yet another iconic and unique idea has been thrown into the world for all to witness; a new line of nude heels. A lot of the time the word nude is depicted as being a pale beige in the fashion industry but Louboutin has broke yet another barrier and created shades that cater to almost every skin tone varying from fair to dark. The collection is now available in stores and online, you can also find your perfect nude by downloading the Louboutin Shades app!
Once again Rihanna is on the path to world domination. Featured in a number of movies, has three fragrances on the shelves, signed endorsements with Victoria’s Secret, H&M and Armani, has been named the new spokeswomen of MAC’s Viva Glam with complete collections that all sell out in the first few days, has her own fashion show on Bravo and has her second line with popular British store, River Island.
Rihanna is notorious for re-innovating her look but the one thing she will always have and put to good use is her nonchalant “IDGAF” attitude which tends to play a huge part of her style as well. This girl has touched on many Madonna inspired looks like her black and white inflated shoulder pads, colored animal skin printed jumpsuits to even carrying the infamous Vivienne Westwood penis clutch! So it isn’t a surprise when Rihanna decides to take the fashion industry by storm.
Pieces from the Fall ’13 collection range from a Scotch tape plaid top, baggy menswear to a shiny metallic gold thin strapped razor back mini dress. Order your favorite pieces now and remember to look out for the artists’ collection in select stores and online!
