Celebrate Chic Week with Sephora!


Calling all cosmetics connoisseurs! Don’t forget to take advantage of Sephora’s Chic Week! All beauty insiders get 15% off with code CHIC, 4/12 through 4/21. VIBs can take advantage beginning 4/11 through 4/22 (same code, VIBCHIC). Or you can print your email and bring the bar code to your local Sephora store.

If you’re anything like me, you keep a running list of products you’re dying to try. On mine this month are Hourglass’ ambient lighting powders (particularly Mood Light), NARS Belle de Jour lipstick (a classic NARS nude lipstick that believe it or not I have yet to try), NARS matte lip pencils in Sex Machine, Never Say Never and Roman Holiday, Urban Decay lip pencil in Paranoid, and Tarte’s cheek stain in Awakening.

With new products on the market and new collections launching what seems like monthly at least, it’s hard to resist temptation and not become a total junkie. Of course if you do give in, you might have yourself your own beauty blog! And find your wallet a little lighter. Lovelies, as we know, this can be an expensive habit so we should take advantages of discounts and perks whenever and wherever we can.

Get on over to your local Sephora or sephora.com and indulge a bit without paying full price.

Cosmetics are a Girl’s Best Friend

The beauty news that I became privy to today had me making sounds only dogs can hear. After decades of being an iconic beauty, Marilyn Monroe will be the official muse of an upcoming MAC collection set to launch this October. What we can learn from the recent news of such beauty collaborations like that of NARS and new product launches from Chanel is that I will be broke in October.

MAC Cosmetics will celebrate Marilyn Monroe’s legacy and bombshell beauty with a limited edition collection, due at all worldwide MAC locations this fall. Launched in partnership with Authentic Brands Group LLC, which acquired the intellectual property of Marilyn Monroe LLC in January 2011, the range will feature around 30 products including eye shadows, lipsticks, nail lacquers and eyeliners.

Women all over the world, myself included, are inspired by Marilyn’s sultry cat eye and crimson lips for a timeless look that’s dripping with glamour. It was only a matter of time before there was an entire collection devoted to her, and rightfully so! Thank you, MAC!
