Fashion and Makeup Addicts Come Here for your Fix

Archive for the ‘sephora’ Category


Now of course I am a high end makeup junkie…but don’t think I dont love a good deal! Especially in these times of economic turmoil. Here we asked celebrity makeup artists Molly Stern and Fiona Stiles to share their favorite lipstick look-a-likes — and they delivered exact shade and texture matches (no one will be able to tell the difference). Now you can get the look of a Chanel lipstick and still afford a night out.
p_less_luxe_lipstick_p01

 

Red:

Luxe: Chanel Rouge Hydrabase in Fire, $28.50 

Less: Styli-Style Hipstick in Happy, $8.49 

“A fun, slightly iridescent red that can pass for the Chanel version. It even has the little bit of gold fleck in it. The one by Styli-Style is less emollient, but you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck,” says Stiles.

Nude:

Luxe: Givenchy Rouge Interdit in Only Beige, $26.50 

Less: Napoleon Perdis NP Set Lipstick in Washington, $15 

“I am always on the quest for the perfect beige lipstick,” says Stiles. “This one by Napoleon Perdis is a great color and a perfect texture. The glossiness and warmth of the color prevents you from looking too washed out, which matte beiges can do.”

p_less_luxe_lipstick_p03

Rose:

Luxe: Benefit Benetint Lip Balm, $20 

Less: Flirt! Tint-a-Licious Lip Sheer in Lover, $10 

“Benetint is such a great color and I love that it’s sheer and just a little glossy,” says Stiles. “This sheer bright pink from Flirt! is a really close match to the Benefit. Sheer brights are so modern and a great way to wear color.”

Plum:

Luxe: Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick in Plum, $25 

Less: CoverGirl TruShine Lip Color in Plum Shine, $5.66 

“I love Armani lip colors. All consistencies. I find their sheer and cream [formulas] are very similar to the formula of CoverGirl’s TruShine Lip color,” says Stern.

Deep Red:

Luxe: Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, $14 

Less: Neutrogena MoistureShine Soothing Lip Sheers in Ruby Bliss, $8.99 

“Black Honey by Clinique has been on the best seller list years,” says Stiles. “Ruby Bliss by Neutrogena is a great, affordable version. The sheer color makes you look polished, but doesn’t feel too lipstick-y.”

p_less_luxe_lipstick_p06

 

Peach

Luxe: Yves Saint Laurent Gloss Pur in Pure Coral, $29 

Less: CoverGirl Amazemint Lip Gloss in Freedom of Peach, $5.79 

“I am a huge fan of YSL’s Gloss Pur, however [also like] the similar finish of CoverGirl’s Amazemint Lip Gloss,” Stern says.

p_less_luxe_lipstick_p07

 

Pale Pink:

Luxe: Cle de Peau Lip Gloss in No. 11, $47 

Less: L’Oreal Paris Bare Naturale Gentle Lip Conditioner in Soft Bloom, $8.96 

“This is such a sophisticated color for a drugstore lip gloss. It has a little iridescence but isn’t super sparkly,” Stiles says. “It’s a beautiful sheer color that doesn’t taste like candy! A huge bonus.”

p_less_luxe_lipstick_p08

 

Pink:

Luxe: Lipstick Queen Sinner Pink, $18 

Less: CoverGirl Incredifull Lipcolor in Warm & Rosy, $6.99 

Stiles found these two to be near-perfect matches. T

p_less_luxe_lipstick_p09

 

 

 

 

 

 

Copper

Luxe: Nars Lipstick in Kiss, $24 

Less: Boots No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Velvet Kiss, $9.99 

Both lipsticks have a burnt copper shade and the Boots No7 has the advantage of being long-lasting. TotalBeauty.com member 51lincoln says, “I am typically not a fan of long wear but when I need something that lasts 4+ hours I wear this.”

p_less_luxe_lipstick_p10

Sparkly Pink:

Luxe: Lancome Juicy Tubes Sparkling Night in Sky Diamond, $18 

Less: Mark Juice Gems in Juicy Cherry Pop, $6 

The packaging of these two glosses is practically identical, so it makes sense that the texture and color are similar too. The difference? The Mark gloss looks red in the tube but goes on like a deeper, sheer pink. The Lancome gloss goes on sheer as well, but the shade is true to the way it looks in the tube.

Ok, this is a repeat from what I wrote pretty much on 2009’s potential discontinued items. But what the heck, its 1 AM and I am tired. So if you dont want to read the next 3 sentences jump down and read on. 🙂 Love 🙂

Now I know this is hard, you get a favorite color of eyeshadow or a lipgloss that just makes your lips pop and what happens? It gets canned. It sucks. It’s hard. But what can you do but learn that it’s coming and be prepared. Being prepared may mean that you are gonna have to buy every last one of that color you can, but eventually – you will run out. Find a good dupe. That’s my best advice. Buying on Ebay is expensive and they will eventually run out too. Throughout the year I am gonna be trying to find other colors that pretty much dupe the products being discontinued by MAC.

I am guessing that Aishwarya Rai has a new 2009 lipgloss that is longlasting that is coming out this year. This is the first photo I am seeing of her so far.

What are your thoughts?

A blast from the past Aishwarya commercial (dont know what language but beautiful nontheless)

By now you should of all heard or read about the MAC x Hello Kitty collaboration and if not I’m bringing the party to you here! Last night was the big global launch party to launch her to the world, it was an amazing party! The “Hello Kitty Commotion!” cocktail soiree celebrated the MAC Hello Kitty color and accessories collection, plus there was also an amazing fashion exhibit of “Hello Kitty Creations” designed exclusively for MAC by 30 internationally renowned designers, to create one-of-a-kind pieces that are inspired by the Hello Kitty collection. MAC asked designers to work within the color palette of the Hello Kitty collection of black, grey, white and pink and last night in New York, MAC unveiled the exclusive designs to the world. Aside from all the beautiful one-offs, there were S&M Kitties everywhere- men in Kitty “heads” with bare tops and black patent leather pants, they stood around the entrance taking photos with guests, handing out Kitty bow cookies and at the end of the night gift bags to guests. I shot a video of the fashion designs but excuse the interruptions as it was super packed, I tried my best! And of course a load of pictures! FUN, loved the event!

The MAC Hello Kitty fashion designer team includes: Blugirl, Catherine Malandrino, Charlotte Ronson, Dress33, Elie Saab, Emanuel Ungaro, General Idea – Bum Suk Choi, Giles, Hervé Léger by Max Azria, Kai Kühne, Kate Sylvester, Katy England, Manish Arora, Marchesa, Miro, Opening Ceremony, Qiu Hao, Rosa Cha, Ruffian, Sang Beg Ha, Shu-Chi Huang, Sinha Stanic, Tadashi Shoji, The Blonds, threeasFOUR, Vicente Villarin, Yigal Azrouel, Zac Posen, Zimmermann. The designs include both avant-garde and more traditional creations from smart cocktail frocks to Kitty couture swimwear. The designs will be auctioned off on eBay, with all proceeds benefiting The Museum at The Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York. Bidding starts on Monday, February 9, 2009 at 10:00pm EST/7:00pm PST and will close on February 19, 2009. Visit ebay.com/machellokitty to place a bid.

The MAC Hello Kitty color and accessory collection is available February 12, 2009 and MAC Hello Kitty Kouture is available on March 5, 2009 at all MAC locations, maccosmetics.com and Nordstrom, but scoop them up quick it won’t last long!

Additionally, the Hello Kitty designs created by Katy England for the MAC Hello Kitty collection visuals will be donated to the museum’s permanent collection and will be on display in the museum’s lobby following the February 5th event. Two MAC Hello Kitty designers will be showcased at Opening Ceremony store on Howard Street in New York City.

Ok so for all yall that couldn’t be there here is the video that I hope will satisfy your craving for just a little longer. 🙂
