Dior Ad Banned In The UK! Those Eyelashes Are Too Long to Girl!!

I’m not going to lie, I laughed a little when I read about the Diorshow New Look mascara ad being banned in the
UK because Natalie Portman’s eyelashes were too long. Who would have thought it?

The UK Advertising Standard’s Authority ruled on October 24th that the Dior ad “must not appear again in its current form”. They found that there were post production techniques used that might mislead consumers about the efficacy of the mascara. Portman’s lashes were enhanced using Photoshop CS5.1. You might wonder why the ASA investigated this particular ad, well I have the answer. The investigation arose out of a complaint filed by L’oreal.

Review: Milani Eyeshadow Pencils

One of ilani’s latest releases has been their cream eyeshadow pencils. They come in a variety of colors from neutrals to bold brights.

These pencils are really nice.  They are creamy and do not tug at your eyelid when you apply them.  They blend well (the white one blends a little too well for certain eye looks).  I didn’t have any creasing and they easily lasted a good 10 hours without fading.

The only issue I had was with the white pencil.  These pencils claim to be highly pigmented, which the blue one is, but when you touch the white shadow, it turns into a sheen.  Its pretty, don’t get me wrong, but the color is almost impossible to build.  It makes a beautiful highlight though.

So, have you picked up any of these shadows and if so what do you think of them?

TUTORIAL: Maybelline Fierce & Tangy Color Tattoo

Hi guys.  Thanks for joining me today.  I got a request to do a makeup look with Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in Fierce and Tangy.

Fierce and Tangy is a beautiful color, somewhere between a coral and an orange.  It looks pretty with a lot of shadows, including Mac’s Expensive Pink and also the dupe for Expensive Pink which is Wet and Wild’s Penny. It also looks really good with brown shadows.  I used a Revlon palette though, as you will see in the video.  I just wanted to let you know a couple of other colors that it would look good with:)

I hope you like this tutorial!   Thanks for watching!!!!

Mac “Hey Sailor” Haul

I picked up a few things from the Mac “Hey Sailor” collection. Initially, when I saw the collection, I decided to grab four items right off the bat, just to make sure that I didn’t miss out. I picked up the lipstick in To Catch a Sailor, the highlight powder in Crew, the eyeshadow in Barefoot and a Pro Longwear Bronzing Powder in Nude on Board.  Later, when things were released at the counters, I went in and purchased the lipstick in Red Racer and also the lipglass in Blessedly Rich to put on top of the To Catch a Sailor lipstick that I had purchased online.  They are so pretty together! So, did you pick anything up from the collection? I’d love to know what you got or what you are planning to get!
