Bad Bish- Lupita Nyong’o for Lancome

Lupita Nyong'o for Lancome

Lupita Nyong'o for LancomeHave you seen the Lupita Nyong’o for Lancome ads? It feels so good to see a woman of color, and a dark skinned one at that, in a makeup ad.

Beauty Bit- Kat Dennings Wears Oxblood for the Emmy 2012 Awards



Kat Dennings is wearing the heck out of oxblood for the Emmy 2012 Awards. If you didn’t know, oxblood that color with the nasty sounding name has been everywhere as one of the top colors for the fall, and I honestly concur! This color looks great on every shade. Every shade. Some choose a deep, dark almost wine colored tint. Others choose a shade with a slightly lighter tint. Kat’s is the lighter more everyday friendly tint. The  Lancôme ‘Rouge in Love Tonight is My Night’ Lipstick collection from Nordstrom has two shades that I think would be great to try out. Even though the Lancôme lipstick costs $25, it is super smooth and lasts a long time. I love the Rouge in Love lipstick. Try the shades Rogue Saint Honore and Rogue Valentine.
