When the MAC Fafi Collection was first launched I was not sure what or who a Fafi was! I now know better. Born and raised in Toulouse France, Fafi’s strong presence in the graffiti and fine arts scene was first witnessed on her hometown walls in 1994. She drew enormous attention and thus started to travel the world with thousands of ‘Fafinettes’ in her brushes and paint cans.

MAC worked exclusively with the Paris-based artist to create three distinct ‘Fafinette’ characters: Monoka, Ermine, and Eriko that embody the signature depictions of sexy, liberated girls that have earned Fafi a devout following in the street art world. When Jennifer Balbier, SVP Product Development for MAC Worldwide, was asked what the ultimate Fafinette face was, she responded: “The look is toned-down skin with heavier emphasis on eyes and a girly mouth. She’s colourful, but the texture is light.”

The Fafi collection is a hip spring colour collection filled with bold, empowering hues, unapologetically girly lip shades of pearly pinks and tangerine reds, iridescent powder, brown, blue and green Paint Pots and Quads, and whimsical cosmetic accessories.

Bobbi Brown Pink Raspberry

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

Bobbi Brown’s Spring 2008 Pink Raspberry Collection is just that – Pink. It may seem a little bright when you first see the palette but once applied will provide all skin tones with a healthy and fresh glow.

“Raspberry is a brilliant way to wear color. It brings out the natural flush of pink on cheeks. There’s a shade of raspberry for every complexion—from pink to deep raspberry.” – Bobbi Brown


Pink Raspberry Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks Extra Soothing Balm (patted on cheeks)

Navajo Eye Shadow (all over lid), Fog Eye Shadow (lower lid and lash line), Black Everything Mascara

Pink Raspberry Face Palette
The season’s must-have palette features cool, neutral shadows and sheer, pink raspberry shades for lips and cheeks that are universally flattering for a range of complexions.

Palette includes: Navajo and Fog Eye Shadows; Pink Raspberry Blush; and Raspberry and Blue Raspberry Lip Sheers.

Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks
This award winning cream-based formula is great for both lips and cheeks. Blot on cheeks or lips for a sheer, stained finish.

This season check out Bobbi’s two new shades – Pink Raspberry (ideal for light to medium skin tones) and Raspberry (ideal for medium to dark skin tones).

It’s the perfect touch of clear colour for Spring.

Bring on Spring!

Lancôme’s Holiday Offerings

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Lancôme has produced a stunning array of Holiday pieces that are definitely worth lusting for – I would suggestion that you check that you are on Mr. Claus’ ‘Nice’ list. You do not want to miss these finding their way under your tree or in your stocking.

I wanted to share with you some of my absolute favourite pieces from this season’s offerings:

Makeup Artist Shimmer Lip Set
I love, love this set. Lancôme Color Fever Gloss feels so divine on your lips and looks marvelous. My mother is trying to steel the Heatstroke gloss but I won’t let her!

Colours: Heatstroke, Up in Smoke, and Limited Edition Precious Light

Precious Carat Lip Gloss
Now that is what I call a rock! Made of Swarovski crystals, this ‘diamond’ features a transparent gloss with a bit of sparkle that can be worn alone or with lipstick for a jewel-like finish.

I just cannot bear to disrupt perfection of this jewel, so it sits on my dressing table looking oh-so-fabulous. I guess one day I will have to snap out of it and use it.

Holiday Face Brush Set
This top quality brush set includes foundation brush #2, a petite precision cheek brush #21, concealer brush #8 and powder brush #1.
With the perfect zip-up travel case, your brushes don’t have to stay home.

I had been wanting a new brush set because mine are ready for the bin – these are so what I needed.

Color Design Eye Palettes
Nothing says ‘Holiday’ more that a stunning makeup palette adorned with satin. The Color Design Eye Palettes are clad in either black or red quilted satin fabric, and hold six luxurious eye shadows. My favourite is the Topaz Kisses – those are definitely my colours.

Colour Combinations: Diamond Studs and Topaz Kisses (shown)

Exclusive La Collection D’or Gift Set
Features La Poudre Ultime D’Or Compact, filled with shimmering translucent pressed powder, luxuriously housed in a refillable, gold-plated, mirrored compact adorned with Swarovski crystals. Its perfect partner: a golden edition of Le Rouge Absolu Reshaping & Replenishing LipColour SPF 15 in fashion-hot Red Light. Both arrive inside a chic, black satin bag with diamond-pattern embossing and red satin lining.

I don’t have this but my how I wish I did. I would be pulling that fabulous compact out of my bag at every chance I had. So chic and stylish.
