Chanel Vamp Attitude Collection for Holiday 2015

chanel - holiday1

In 1994, a uniquely striking LE VERNIS shade was revealed on the Chanel Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear runway, and a legend was born. When the polish debuted to the public a year later, it caused an instant sensation. Now as a celebration of the shade that became an icon, the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio introduces a gleaming Holiday collection that pays tribute to the rebellious black-red, ‘Vamp’.


My Top 5 Go To Face Brushes

Creating the perfect look isn’t just about the products and techniques. Your tools play a major part too! Makeup is an art and your face is the canvas so you want to be sure you’re using the right tools to craft your masterpiece. Can you imagine Leonardo da Vinci painting the Mona Lisa with sponge applicators and thin, scratchy brushes? Probably not. You may not be a makeup artist but you’re still an artist and building a good set of brushes is important. The right tools can help simplify your routine or completely transform the way you apply makeup.

That’s why I have two sets of faves that I always reach for–one for my eyes and one for my face. They’re pretty much foolproof and help me apply and blend my makeup just the way I like it. Here’s a quick review of my top 5 go to face brushes:

NARS Steven Klein Gifting Collection for Holiday 2015

nars - stevenklein9

Just when I thought Laura Mercier’s holiday collections were going to be trouble here comes NARS. The Steven Klein Collection is massive and filled top to bottom with tempting lipsticks, eyeshadows, blushes and more. This is probably the best holiday collection I’ve ever seen. I hate to admit it but this is probably where all of my coins are going this holiday. There doesn’t seem to be room for much else!

François Nars and Steven Klein come together with design legend Fabien Baron to create an exquisite fantasy played to extremes.

“Steven is an iconic fashion photographer. His work defies the rules of photography–it’s arresting and provocative. It pushes boundaries and elicits a reaction. I like that. He perfectly embodies the spirit of NARS.” –François Nars, Founder & Creative Director

“I’ve always had the highest regard for François’ work. He is the pioneer of moving from one of the greatest makeup artist to creating great makeup. It is super exciting for me to collaborate using my photographs and joining them with his cosmetic genius.” –Steven Klein, Photographer

Limited edition lipsticks, blushes and eyeshadows? Oh my! The holiday season always has a ton of good things in store but my favorite part is the limited edition sets and kits. It’s the perfect time to try a new brand, stock up on minis of your fave products or just splurge on yourself without feeling too guilty. This year, Sephora has whipped up another round of favorites sets and kits to make this holiday season extra special and I’m all in!


I Think I’m Addicted to ColourPop…

ColourPop Nevermind Lippie Pencil, Grunge Lippie Pencil, Leather Lippie Pencil, Feminist Lippie Pencil, Grunge Lippie Pencil, Trap Ultra Matte Lip, Zipper Ultra Matte Lip, Coconut Super Shock Shadow, Nillionaire Super Shock Shadow

Hi, my name is Fancie and I think I’m addicted to ColourPop. I just ordered some goodies a couple of weeks ago and yet here we are again with even more goodies. The worst part? I may or may not have placed another order last night for a couple of the new Ultra Matte Lipstick shades and other goodies. Le sigh. It’s just so easy to get wrapped up in ColourPop!

I’ve gotten so used to paying over $17 for lippies and $15 for eyeshadows that when I finally discovered how creamy their Lippie Pencils and Stix were and how pigmented, bouncy and fluffy their shadows and cheek goodies are I was all over that ‘ish. All over it.

Wake up, wake up, wake up! It’s the first of the moooooooonth. Yeah, I’m having a Bone Thugs-n-Harmony moment right now. It’s almost like a natural reaction the first of every month lol. Especially October though. For some reason, I’m already feeling the good vibes this month. I think it’s because I’ve been trying some really great new products and my best friends are in town. Great feelings all around!
