All you need is a perfect  red lipstick to complete any look. From blue red  undertone to orange undertone, everyone can find their own unique red lipstick. Finding the perfect red lipstick is like finding the perfect little black dress
As a make-up artist, beauty blogger and someone who has been in the cosmetics industry for twenty years, even though I don’t wear it myself, I definitely know a good “red” lipstick when I see one. Therefore, let me share with you my new favorite “red” lipstick from Dolce&Gabbana. These three colors will work on nearly all skin tones.

Dolce Matte Red Lipstick $37
A matte lipstick with an opaque formula created to give lips intense, vivid, and full-bodied red color. These matte lipstick offer long lasting wear, without drying the lip. The formula has less wax for fuller coverage and opacifiers that spread in multiple directions for the  most effective matte finish.

1. Dolce Heart – orange undertone
2. Dolce Flirt – clear red
3. Dolce Ruby – blue undertone
* Did you know each color was based on actual Dolce&Gabbana fabrics used in their collection, so wearing these lipsticks is like wear the Dolce&Gabbana fashion.

Tom Ford Lips & Boys Review and Color Swatches

HOMEPAGE_1x3_LIPSANDBOYS_4

On December 26, 2014, one of the biggest launches was Tom Ford Lips & Boys. 50 mini size Tom Ford lipsticks became available to the public. So what’s the big deal? Well it’s the most smart marketing ever, if I may say. These lip sticks were name after 50 men who influenced Tom Ford… Thats right! They named the colors after male names. Who won’t want to wear Adriano or Luca.

These are mini size 0.07 oz, cost $32. Everything looks just the same as the regular size lipstick 1.0 oz for $50. Both lipsticks have the same ingredients: soda see extract , Brazilian murmur butter and chamomila flower oil. I think it’s the size of this luxury lipstick that got everyone talking about it. It’s so easy to carry around! When you’re going to the club with a smaller purse, lipstick is by far the most important make up you need to bring so a smaller size is in demand!

Tip: There are 50 colors available but you do not need to buy all 50. Purchase one shade in each color family group. For example, purchase just one orange shade then use a different colored lipliner to create multiple colors from that one (orange) color! Create many different colors with all your favorite shades!

I ordered Adriano, Luca, Alexander and Didier. The Tom Ford makeup artist picked out these colors for me because he thinks these are going to be the hottest colors for Spring. I like how these lipsticks just glide smoothly onto my skin. It’s also good for dry lips too!

Here are the swatches for these colors.

Fendi Demi Jours Mini Bird Crossbody Bag

My new philosophy on purchasing designer items is really based on limited editions either by season or quantity. Why? So it’s less likely I’ll walk into someone who has the same bag. I am sure you all have the same experience. I am sure it’s most awkward especially if they wear it better.  Another reason is that limited pieces retain value much better and they most likely won’t go on sale.

Speaking of limited edition bags, I recently purchased a Fendi Demi Jour Mini Bird Crossbody Bag from the spring 2015 bird themes resort collection. Just look at the bag! How can anyone say NO?! But what really sold me is when I found out there are only 80 pieces of this available in USA. Guess what I said? ” I’ll take it!” And of course, the sales person at Fendi was so nice and not pushy at all.

TRIBAL MASK KEY POUCH $ 660 
This collection is inspired by Gaston Vuitton’s Africa Tribal Mask back in 1931. For $660 you can own a limited edition piece from LV that is both cute and useful! This Key Pouch 5.5 x 3.1 is small but big enough to carry ID and cash. I would say this is prefect gift for your love one this holiday season.
