Marc Jacobs, who’s renowned for his own line, as well as his work with fashion house Louis Vuitton, will soon be coming out with a beauty line in collaboration with beauty retailer Sephora. The 122-piece collection will be Sephora’s first global launch and will include concealers, color correctors, and lacquers, among some other products. You can get your hands on the goods this summer on August 9th!

While I’ll raise an eyebrow to the casting of a South Asian model for a character who is Middle Eastern, I definitely love the exposure of more South Asian models in major ad campaigns, especially for Indian/Spanish model Alyssah Ali (who interestingly enough, was born in Trinidad and Tobago, and raised in Canada). I’ll also highly suggest the collection for Sephora for any die-hard Disney fanatics.
To shop the collection, please go here.
Even more products have been added to the adorable Hello Kitty cosmetics line. Don’t wait til the last minute to get yours! The new Spring 2013 Makeup collection is available exclusively and in limited edition right now at Sephora. Keep reading to get a glimpse of the new gift sets and be prepared to be overwhelmed with the cuteness.
Do you ever wake up one day and feel like there’s something you’re just so thankful for, you wanna tell the world about it?
Sometimes it could be big stuff. (My baby sister is so awesome! My car didn’t die on me today!) Sometimes it’s a little more minuscule.
Today’s one of those days.
I’ve always been a makeup hoarder. I have to pack my two giant makeup pouches everywhere I go just in case my makeup melted off my face one day and I’ll have to reapply.
But Too Faced‘s Glamour to Go palette, available at Sephora, completely changed my world.
As if waiting for the new episode of Glee wasn’t painful enough for us Gleek fans, Sephora by OPI decides to add another thing for us to look forward to by launching the Sephora by OPI goes Gleek Chic collection tomorrow, February 3.
We all know Sephora offers the hottest new beauty products, and what’s hotter now than this show that has earned 19 Emmy nominations and four Emmy Awards with more than 18 million song downloads? This limited edition features bold colors inspired by the show’s essential elements such as its diverse cast, addictive music numbers and comedic references.
Embody the characters and show your inner “Miss Bossy Pants” (a rich raspberry) or even “Diva-in-Training” (a poppy pink). Or you can choose to “Gleek Out” (a lime, glittery green) while saying “Hell to the No” (a bold purple). You can even tell your friends that you’ve been “Slushied” (an opaque blue) or that you “Express Yourself to Yourself” (a shimmering coral). Of course you can even go for a “Mash-Up” (a pearlescent green-gray) or the “Celibacy Club” (a glimmering, diamond top coat). But don’t forget to join in on “Sue Vs Shue” (a navy blue); and lastly, “Who Let the Dorks Out” (a peacock green)?
As an ultimate Glee fan, you should get your hands on this collection that is exclusively sold at all major Sephora locations including those inside JCPenney’s. You can own these 10 new nail color shades (some which only come in a six-piece mini-set collection) and three print nail design appliqués (easy-to-apply, precut strips in different Glee-inspired designs) starting tomorrow, February 3, a few days before the launch of the special episode of Glee that will air following Super Bowl XLV this Sunday on Fox.
Also, look for a preview of the Sephora by OPI Glee polish on some of the characters in the upcoming Valentine’s Day episode on February 8. Also, stop by the Sephora at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles on February 12 from 2 pm – 4 pm for the in-store launch event that will host Naya Rivera (Santana). One lucky winner will get an on-site make-over!
Be vibrant, creative and bold and bring Glee into your beauty routine!
Last night was the press preview party for Small Gift L.A., a 10-day carnival full of Hello Kitty and Sanrio goodness in Santa Monica, Calif. Wow, was it a doozy! Hello Kitty goodness galore! From Kitty cars to Kitty art to a giant Kitty ferris wheel and miniature golf course. We gorged ourselves on free Pink’s hotdogs and Beard Papa’s cream puffs, played free Ms. Pac-man and Galaga, and got gussied up with Hello Kitty’s new makeup line launching at Sephora in January. I felt like I was 8 again (and in a very, very good way).
Don’t worry if you missed it. Not only is the carnival free until November 21, they’re having a special nerd party this Saturday the 13th.
You may not have been able to attend the fat press preview party, but we snagged three extra gift bags just for our readers! It includes Small Gift, Sanrio’s exclusive 50th Anniversary book, and a whole slew of the cutest, happiest, cutest (did I mention cutest?) happy-goodness I’ve seen in a long time.
1) Look through our previous posts and comment on three of them.
2) On the comments section below THIS post, tell us which three posts you commented on AND tell me who your favorite Sanrio character was growing up (mine were Keroppi, Little Twin Stars, and of course, My Melody — I’m old school that way)
We will select the best comments to win. An @audreymagazine tweet will also count as a comment! Giveaway submissions end Wednesday, November 17, 11:59 pm. As usual, a U.S. mailing address is required.
Good luck! (And more info on carnival here and on the nerd party below.)
Childhood is calling. There’s something about the newest makeup products these days that reminds me of elementary school art class. From markers to paint brushes to finger painting, the easiest makeup this summer just requires a little dexterity.
Tokidoki Fantastico Lip Ink
I’m not a lipstick person and I’m certainly not a lip liner person, and that goes double for the hotter months of the year. And yet nothing is worse than hair stuck in lip gloss. Ew.
But the genius that is Tokidoki Fantastico Lip Ink stains your lips with a soft marker tip and feels like you have nothing on (except for that luscious mango scent and the fact that it has moisturizing panthenol so your lips stay hydrated). It goes on sheer and light, allowing you to layer more for a deeper stain. And it lasts. Wow, does it last.
Available at Sephora, $15.
Hard Candy Powder Keg in Dagger
Throw away the brushes and the applicators. Nothing is easier than dab, dab, dabbing with your ring finger.
Case in point. Hard Candy’s Powder Keg Loose Eye Shadow in Dagger is so easy to use, you’re liable to go a little crazy. Spill proof container and applicator deposit just the right amount on your finger, allowing you to dab silky smooth olive green shadow with just a hint of golden sheen on your lid. Dab a little for a sheer sheen. Dab more for a unique, deep smoky eye perfect for summer.
Oh, and the hue looks so good on Asian skin tones.
Available at Walmart, $6.
Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen
I may be great at dabbing (cream eye shadow, lip gloss), but anything requiring precision application (nail polish, eye brow pencil) gets a bit tricky. I have a cousin who always has the prettiest, coolest nails — sometimes with just a swipe of blood red on the tips, sometimes with a unique design on each nail — and she always does it herself.
Sure, it helps if you’re an art major, like she is. But if you’re not, you can always cheat with Sally Hansen’s Nail Art Pen. A fine tip pen lets you draw precise lines and the water-based formula can be corrected with a moist cotton swab without damaging dry nail polish.
Available in eight different shades, and as always, it’s toluene, DBP and formaldehyde free.
Available at most drugstores.
Benefit Confessions of a Concealaholic
I’m not usually fan of makeup palettes and kits, especially the eye-cheek-and-lip kind. Before you know it, little bits of aubergine shadow are embedded in your nude pot gloss, and everything becomes one gritty mess.
Benefit’s concealer kit, on the other hand, is genius because now you have everything you need to touch up those blemishes on the go — even a handy mirror built right in.
With mini sizes of their best selling concealing products including That Gal primer, their hard-core Erase Paste concealer, two shades of concealer (for dark circles versus blemishes), a pink concealer for under eyes, a yellow for everything else, and two double sided brushes that get you covered!
Available at Benefit, $36.
I know, I know. No matter how “Asian” tokidoki looks, the designer behind the adorably wicked characters is Italian and there is no other Asian connection other than its obvious inspiration from Japanese pop art. We discovered that in the early days of Audrey when we went to a press preview and saw the characters and got excited, thinking it was a new Asian brand or line or designer that we could feature. Nope. Simon Legno, the creator, other than his passion for Japanese culture, has no discernible Asian connection that would allow us to finagle the brand into the magazine.
But that doesn’t stop me from loving the line. And besides, what is “Asian” anyway? I think something like tokidoki that perpetuates and mainstreams a visibly “Asian” aesthetic is all good.
Now that I have that out of the way, I can just show you the adorableness that is tokidoki’s exclusive new line at Sephora. So, so, so cute, with its ever-present wicked bent. Kawaii for adults. Get it just so you can look at it on your vanity.
The line includes everything from brightly hued eye and lip makeup to character-splashed makeup tools like the all-important kabuki brush. One of my favorites is the tokidoki Perfetto Eyeliner ($16). It’s a chisel-tipped pen liner, which is incredibly easy to use, and it comes in so many cool colors. Don’t limit yourself to your eyes — get creative with the eight bold shades to draw anywhere, anytime.
I like the tokidoki Fantastico Lip Stain ($15) as well — it’s also got that marker pen applicator that makes you feel like you’re literally painting on a canvas.
Other goodies include:
* tokidoki Cromatico Eyeshadow, either in their signature tokidoki heart and crossbones packaging ($15), or an illustration-filled quad set ($25).
*tokidoki Luminosa Powder ($22) for a luminescent, radiant glow.
* tokidoki Inferno Bronzer ($22) for a hint of warmth, and it’s good for your skin, too, with its rice lipids and vitamin B.
* tokidoki Cactus Pup Buffers ($8) are three little friends you can take anywhere with you for a quick nail buffing. But with mascots this cute, they’ll just add pizazz hanging from your keychain or bag.
* tokidoki cystal embellished key chains ($16) … just because.
DETAILS The new tokidoki collection is available exclusively at Sephora stores. 877-Sephora, Sephora.com.
