Obsessed Mag’s Top 4 lipstains!

http://www.obsessedmagazine.com/

We are moving now in to the warmer months ahead. We still want to look nice when going out, we all know that the heat and makeup just don’t mix..
We find ourselves using less make up and searching for alternatives. Opting for mineral (powder foundations) to tinted moisturizers. And I honestly feel in the summer months less make up is more. So, I have done a lot of trial and errors with my warmer months makeup and I will share a video soon.. But, for now I would like to share some really nice stains, that are long wearing, will not dry out your lips and last through eating and drinking..
My Number 1 favorite of life at the moment is ‘ Laura Mercier Lip stain in color Peach Glaze!!’

This color is the most gorgeous color of a peach-nude, this is perfect color for spring/summer!! !! It is butter to your lips and once dry, it’s set!
The second color is also from Laura Mercier in color Mullberry This is a gorgeous color of a reddish – burgundy. This color is for more of a evening color and I would like to add, my personal experience with this color.. When my hair was more blonde.. the color did not suit me! It was to strong. To the point I didn’t like it on me. However, now that my hair is a richer warmer color, this looks perfectly on me. So, for you blondes, be careful with this color before you purchase it. It’s a beautiful shade. “
What it say’s about this stain” Laura Mercier Lip Stain provides the visual effect of a stain with the comfort and sheen of a lip gloss. The long-term wear with a satin, balmy finish leaves the look of effortless polish and understated sophistication.
  • 0.21 oz.
  • By Laura Mercier; made in the USA. Price tag $ 20.00
    3rd, that I am loving is Tarte Lipsurgence natural matte lip tint in color ” Exposed”  This too is a peachy – nude color and once on, stays put. What it say’s about this stain.
    “Tarte’s LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Stain give lips a natural flush with a matte finish that lasts while softening and moisturizing lips with clinically-proven LipSurgence technology” Price Tag $ 24.00
  • I will sometimes add this on my lips and do the rest of my make up and then layer over peach glaze and it is so pretty!

  • And Last on my list is my Smashbox 0-Plump. Love this! This works with your chemistry and creates your own personal ” FLUSH” Looks so beautiful and natural, with an added bonus a lip plumper, It will fill in the lines for a more smoother looking pout, But I don’t think it really boost the size of the lips. Overall, its a FABULOUS Lip-stain

  • Price Tag $ 24.00
    These are my Top Picks That I use and recommend.
    Happy OBSESSING!!

Betsey Johnson- Bold Statement pieces

Tags

, , , , , ,

Betsey Johnson, The name itself brings us to the bright  hot pink label. Her style screams  feminine and whimsical, while her jewelry is a bold – chunky eye – catching statement piece.
I can not add enough pieces to my collection. I think it is always wise to add statement pieces to your wardrobe. Being shoes, clutch,jewelery,belt, hair pieces. Something that stands out and grabs attention.
I came across the BOLD,CHUNKY bracelet that when I seen it, it grabbed my eye! It is gold with snakes that wrap around a  cheetah and rhinestone engulfed heart with bold green leaves that branch out. Adorned by a heart and arrow clasp.


When I put this on my wrist it is proportional and the heart sits perfectly on the wrist in a raised appearance.
Price tag $ 125.00
That is not a lot to spend when you break it down. Considering you are buying a Designer piece, that will be the  focal point of your outfit; and have your friends wanting to know where you got this!

 

 
Remember, stand out, stand apart from others! You are unique and nobody can be better at being you, THEN YOU !
Until next time, Happy Obsessing !

, , , ,

YSL Fuschia Innocent #27 for March 27th 2012

A new-generation lipstick inspired by Monsieur Saint Laurent’s iconic color palette—red, fuchsia and orange—in a collection of captivating couture shades that offer each complexion a customized look. Enveloped in a luxurious gold case designed by Creative Director Stefano Pilati, Rouge Pur Couture speaks elegance. Lips are saturated with intense, stay-true color, thanks to the Coloreveal Technology while natural extracts provide comforting moisture that lasts all day. Provides medium to full coverage with a radiant, satin finish. SPF 15.
I love the bright bold color. This is totally perfect to rock on your pout for the spring. What a great way to incorporate some bold color. Simply pair this with a simple make-up look and suddenly your entire look becomes FIERCE!
This is todays OBSESSION!
Hurry and get yours this is Limited Edition. I found the last one at Nordstroms. This is long lasting and feels like you have nothing on your lips. The price is $ 34.00

Show Stoppers!!

, , , , ,

March 28th, 2012
We can never have enough shoes. So, yesterday while out shopping I came across the most sparkly shoe of LIFE!!! They are called ” Show Stoppers!
and they are just that. If you want/seek attention, then these are the shoes to have!
I am totally OBSESSING over these !! I had to have them. Plus The girl showed me the matching clutch! Had to have that too, why of course it matches!
Now, these are VERY high – heels with the platform. If you are not use to walking in these I recommend practice PRACTICE and more PRACTICE!
I also recommend the grips that go on the bottom of the heel to prevent slipping.. Yes, I bought those too.. These will look great with just about anything. From leggings to dresses to skirts and even paired with a nice skinny jean and silk or chiffon cut out top. You simply can’t go wrong with these.
It’s always wise to add STATEMENT pieces to your wardrobe collection; and while out shopping, ask yourself How many different ways can I pair this particular item?
What I like about this shoe; is it takes you from classy when paired with a black dress, that does not have a lot going on- being the shoe is the main focal point. To Sexy when paired with leggings or skinny jeans for a more edgy look.

Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara

Tags

, ,

Givenchy Phenomen’ Eyes Mascara: I stumbled across this by complete accident, and I am so

thankful that I did. It’s all in the WAND!!

This has moved up to my number one favorite mascara.. This will always be a staple item in my makeup bag. For a product to be a so- called ” staple” item in my bag, it has to live up to certain expectattions that I may have/

1.) deliver what it promises to do. In this case it says”  High – Precision * Panoramic Mascara* Perfectly curled and seperated lashes. Delivers!

2.) I find that it gets in to the tiniest of areas, where you didn’t even think you had eyelashes. Winner!

3.) Great for doing the bottom lashes. The short wand is ideal for handling, and having full control and placement of the product. EQUALS PRECISION

4.) Last all day and through the night. It did not clump or transfer. Easily removable with your eye makeup remover. Color is highly pigmented. Bonus!!

This is the ONLY mascara that I have found to give me full dramatic, spider leg lashes That has been a trend all over the runways this fall and winter.

I am personally not a fan of false lashes. I included a few pictures of me wearing the product. My lashes are really long.. even the picture does not do it justice.

It is available at Sephora price is $ 29.50

Until next time, Be well and God bless

Review/Demo: Chanel Concealer

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Here is my review and demo for the Chanel long lasting concealer. First off, I would like to add that This is my Number one Favorite concealer, Second being Bobbi Brown Duo.

Chanel stands in a class of it’s own. I have to say with all honesty, that Chanel hands down is top of the makeup industry. Everything that I have ever tried, has always exceded my expectation. I am always willing  and eagered to try a new product that they have launched.  I also, have Staple items that I will replace when I run out.

Now for the Concealer.. This is a very smooth silky formula, that easily blends with little effort. I demo a tapping method to blend it in.. This is always the way you should be applying anything under the eye area!!

Pulling and tugging/rubbing – is stretching the delicate under eye skin.. This will catch up with you, so please take extra care with this area of the face.

I find it last for me all day and even into the night without  added touch ups, when I set it with a finishing powder. It does not settle in to fine lines, It does not crease, it awakens the eye area, tired eyes; or sallowness, looks instantly refreshed and brighter.

The retail price is $ 40.00. I attached the video. I hope everyone had a terrifc Valentines Day, Love is what makes the world a Happier place!

Until Next time, Stay Fashionable! Xo Kelly Arcidiacono Xo

Epic Fail – Worst Beauty Products of 2011

Tags

, , , ,

I wanted to do this video in hopes to save you money..

It really is sad to throw hard earned money on useless products that don’t work out the window

when it could be applied to better products. From my own personal experinece. I am finding more and more that beauty products that are found at drug stores I.e right aid, cvs etc are in my book  not a winner.. Now I know a lot of you may disagree with my opinion; and I want to say” that it’s okay to disagree in the Beauty community”. I do like a lot of products that I find.  Let me go in to detail and again

I don’t mean all brands!  this is just the jist of it –

.  Let’s say you are going to an event where you are going to be photographed and you spend money on  new clothes,shoes, hair etc.. Then when it comes down to the most important part of the picture.. That everyone looks at most The face –  you are wearing a foundation that you spent $10.00 on.. The color does not match well, The famous line of demarcation that seperates your face from your neck..  is all so visible. as if that’s was not bad enough the sightly “Ghostly Pale Look” and  washed out; if flash is being used..

Have you ever looked at a picture and thought ” Why do my pictures look so bad?” Did you ever stop to think, its not you, its the makeup?

I feel with a lot of things you get what you pay for.. referecing back to brands. With todays technology in cameras HD.. which shows every flaw a man or woman has, its becoming harder and harder to trick the eye into perceiving a flawless face. Makeup Forever is a great brand that  targets the HD  world

If you can not afford to spend $ 45.00 for a foundation, that is understandable. My advice is to save up the money; and buy a quality foundation, and be colored matched.. it truly makes all the difference in the world. I am so tired of wasting money on useless beauty items and before I made youtube videos I never really bought drugstore items. Not that I think i’m to good to buy them, I just feel they are a waste of money in general. I can never ever go wrong with any Chanel,Bobbi Brown,Nars, Dior makeup that I have purchased.

I could go on forever, but I think you get the main idea of what im trying to get across Here is an example: Nars foundation $45.00 Maybelline Instand age rewind $ 18.00 almost half of nars.. and in comparison, it doesn’t even come close.

Hair care is on the TOP of my list – We spend a huge amount of money to have our hair done professionally to go home and use cheap shampoo !! WHY would you do that? Cheap shampoo has

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate !!

This removes and strips the color right out!! !! check on the bottle of your shampoo… all the color is being washed down the drain of your shower and fading your color!!

I attached the video to see the failed products of 2011

Until next time Be well and God Bless !!

Meet Christian Louboutin at Bergdorf

Tags

, , , , ,

If you love fashion as much as I do, you know that nothing—absolutely nothing—beats meeting your favorite fashion icons in person. It’s something about coming face to face with the individual that inspires you and shaking the hands responsible for the concept and creation of your most coveted wardrobe piece. That half-rockstar half-role model moment is absolutely irreplaceable. These are the fruitions of fashionista daydreams. Imagine the excitement pulsing through the second floor shoe boutique at Bergdorf’s as the stiletto savvy crowd lined up for the ultimate designer spoil: a personal autograph from Mr. Louboutin himself.As if shopping for a pair of signature red soles isn’t glamorous enough, yesterday each purchase was followed by the opportunity to strut right up to meet the man and thank him personally for keeping your style so fabulous. In return, he’d offer you a reserved smile and customized signature. In true Louboutin fashion, these weren’t just run-of-the-mill scribbles. Yesterday’s lucky ladies left with artwork for the sole—a multi-colored design and insurance no one will ever be wearing the same pair as her again! Peep a few exciting event

Christian Louboutin’s rare and exciting visit to Bergdorf’s marks a milestone for the beloved brand, the celebration of his 20th Anniversary Capsule Collection. He also graciously extended the opportunity for Parson’s New School alumni to join the party. Designers took inspiration from the collection, which features the most iconic styles from two decades of design, for their creations. Together Louboutin and Bergdorf women’s fashion director, Linda Fargo, chose five finalists to debut at the event and display on the store’s main floor through February 8th.

    “What I found exciting and interesting about all the finalists is that they took an element of each of the shoes, or a unique detail, and created something completely different,” Louboutin said. His precise words strike upon the core of what makes him, these new artists, and all of our favorite fashion legends the rock stars in our lives—the ability to draw inspiration from others’ inspirations, to create the new from the avant-garde, to keep pushing forward in an unending river of creativity and beauty. In celebrating his 20th anniversary, Monsieur Louboutin may be transitioning into a new role—that of the revered mentor, the master who works to grow his own love for the fashion world in others. From what we saw last night, he’s transitioning beautifully into his new persona as an icon to the next generation

As a fitting tribute to such a landmark accomplishment, Louboutin has published a self-titled book—a work of art in its own right—that explores the captivating, magical world of the man behind the designs. If you can’t quite swing a pair of Louboutins right now, pick it up and use his story to hold you over as you save for the upcoming eye candy that is the March 2012 debut of the designer’s collaboration with Parisian Cabaret, Le Crazy Horse. It’ll be worth the wait.

And Until next time Stay Fashionable!!
