Love Beyonce's Look? Get it!

Did you know that People.com now has it's own blog? And it is all about fahion, beauty - and everything us girls just love.

585248-456949-thumbnail.jpgWell, they have a great post that I just had to bring you. It is all about the beautiful Beyonce, and her VMA look.


Her makeup artist, Francesca Tolot from the Cloutier Agency, recreated the look from her brand-new "Ring the Alarm" video. She started with L'Oreal True Match Foundation in Coffee over the whole face, and set it with a light dusting of La Mer Pressed Powder in Shell. She went over Beyonce's lids with MAC eyeshadow in Bisque and higlighted the browbone with L'Oreal Eyeshadow Single in Copper Penny, before lining the eyes with Nars Eye Liner in Black Moon and finishing them off with Mac Eyelashes. Her lips were colored in with L'Oreal Hip Lipcolor in Fearless and polished off with a layer of L'Oreal Colour Juice Sheer Lip Gloss in Peek-A-Boo Clear.

Back to School Beauty - Markers for your Lips!

I am tired of school supply shopping. I never had to bring anything to school but a back pack, a few pencils, maybe a favorite pen, and a binder. My kids have lists 2 pages long - ugh.

As we strolled through Staples yesterday afternoon looking at the multiple sizes and types of magic markers there are - I wondered - what about a magic marker for your lips? Voila - there is one. I totally forgot about it - but I need to refresh my (and your) memory.

bj_lipstain.jpgBourjois Lip Stain Pen - the equivalent to a magic marker for the lips. Inside this nifty pen is a lipstain - that comes out through the felt-tip - just like a marker. Yes - I said - a magic marker. It is very cool.  All you simply need to do is glide the tip of it ever so gently over the lips. They immediately feel wet - water-like wet. And then almost instantly - they dry - with a beautiful flush of color.

The color really soaks into the lips, leaving a very matte finish. All you need to do is top it off with a bit of gloss, and you are good to go. And the stain - it stains. Really, it lasts, and lasts, and lasts- day and night. A tint was even seen after removing my makeup - but it was gone by morning - phew!

Currently, there are 4 pretty colors to pick from - and at just $15, a nice deal.

Now what will you think of when shopping for boring magic markers? (I'll be thinking about Sephora too!)
