Let’s just say I was very, very privileged to be able to attend the Oscar de la Renta show this year at Audi Fashion Festival. It was a visual feast that would make every girl squeal in delight. All the models wore neat, feminine braids, and were donned in taffeta gowns with the most exquisite details – complete with matching accessories and shoes.
First, let’s see what goes on backstage!Comment?
Power Palettes (not Power Plates)… that’s my definition for a makeup palette packed with the essential colours for a quick make up look – eye shadows, cheek colours and rouge.
Today I will introduce two such palettes, coincidentally limited edition collaborations. The first one is from Bobbi Brown‘s partnership with American fashion designer L’Wren Scott and is newly launched this Spring. The second one is a release last year from NARS x Guy Bourdin collaboration.

If you need a palette of all the neutral shades that you would ever need for your eye make-up, look no further. The NARSissist Eye Palette, which will be launched on 3rd Feb (Monday), contains 15 NARS signature eye shades. You could easily swing from the basic natural look to an intense smothering smokey eye with this palette.Comment?
It is easy to understand why NARS Eye Paints could look intimidating at first glance. The colors appear smooth and intense, resembling the gel eye liners. It provides a falsehood that no mistake could be tolerated while working on these cream eye shadows.2 Comments
For someone who is unfortunately blessed with dry lips, I do not wear lipsticks everyday as some of the ingredients in the formula could worsen the condition. I have experimented enough lipsticks – and put myself at risk of having undesirable chapped bits on my pout at important events – to identify the moisturizing rouges that are ideal for my type of lips.
If you have the same problem as me, these products are probably suitable for you too!

Launched as a limited-edition offering in July this year, the full name of this special palette “Voulez-Vous Choucher Avec Moi, Ce Soir” literally means “Do you want to sleep with me tonight” in French.
By now, we are no stranger to the provocative names coming from NARS. Kudos to François Nars for making e us ladies articulate words like “Orgasm”, “G-Spot” or “Deep Throat” in a matter-of-fact manner without blushing.
I digressed. Apart from its attention-grabbing name, the Voulez-Vous palette is actually a really functional item that contains the essential colours – 4 eye shadows and 2 cheek blushes – that any girl would relish.Comment?
