Favorite Find Friday: Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lipstick in 103

Written on June 22, 2012 at 11:10 am , by

They say if you stop looking for love, it’ll come when you least expect it. The adage holds true in beauty, too: We gave up on our long, unsuccessful quest for the perfect nude lipstick— and then a makeup artist painted Giorgio Armani Rouge D’Armani Lipstick in 103 on our pout. It was love at first swipe. The medium-coverage, moisturizing bullet is the perfect balance between beige and rose: It’s not so neutral that we look washed out, yet it’s a far cry from bubblegum pink. The luxurious, creamy texture blends seamlessly into our natural lip color, so we don’t need a mirror to apply. And the sleek case has a fun magnetic closure, making us even more inclined to whip it out.

Tell us: What’s your perfect nude lip product?

Favorite Find Friday: MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Groundwork

Written on June 1, 2012 at 10:31 am , by

Our summer makeup bags house only the toughest humidity defenders— think mattifying primers, cheek stains, and tubing mascara. MAC Cosmetics Paint Pot in Groundwork is sure to maintain its makeup bag real estate through Labor Day. The double-duty eye primer/eye shadow combo doesn’t budge: Not even a hot yoga class can make it crease (we’ve tried!). The taupey-nude creates a veil of subtle definition over our lids while the slightest hint of shimmer brings out the tiny flecks of color in our irises. Best of all, our 6PM touch-up ritual is no longer needed.
