Beauty Bloggers Collaborate for Makeup inspired by music

I know Christmas has come and gone and I admit my bad bloggery-ness, getting way to excited with presents and forgetting about updating the blog. Sorry!

In remorse I share with you some Christmas goodness, a collaboration of beauty bloggers who teamed up to create makeup looks inspired by Christmas songs. Woop! I think what they did was pretty cool, so happy to share it with you, even a *month* (blush) late.

Here are the list of the songs and artists:

1. GlitterGirlC – When you wish upon a star
2. Makeup Frenzy – Rocking around the Christmas tree
3. Bold Creations – Santa Claus is coming to town
4. Nijigasumi – Jingle bell rock
5. Tal Peleg (me! ) – Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
5. Katie Alves – Frosty the snowman
6. Ravenice Make Up – Winter wonderland

Check out the rest of these here.

Nach Bijoux Zebra-licious hedgehog, lion and horse rings

Anyone who knows me knows that I have something of a ring fetish. You could go so far as to call it an obsession. Shiny things, bling things, anything that makes my hands spark up a little and gives me smiles inside are just awesome. I’ve just discovered a brand new ring brand (well, new to me) that’s making all my ring fantasies come true.

I’m currently crazy about these Nach Bijoux designs, as the stuff they are creating combines beauty, style and uniqueness. I have never seen anything quite like their work, and I can’t get enough of what they are doing here. I like that they are taking a design that could be seen as cheesy or stupid and giving it elegance, class and uber cuteness.

I mean how often would you think, giant lion on my finger with chain mane and actually like it? However, in this case it blows you away. The rings are custom made and created with porcelain, and the finish on the designs is gorgeous, serious hand crated quality.
I love that they are so playful with the animal kingdom, as so many exist that truly make me warm and gooey inside.

Guerlain Crazy Paris Collection Christmas 2013

I adore Guerlain and their Christmas 2013 collection does not disappoint. A beautiful mix of racy neons, glistening iridescent powder sand a Crazy Paris theme for true Parisian elegance, this collection ticks all the right boxes.

The collection combines limited edition loveliness with eye palettes that pop and a range of hot lip shades that they call “insolent, exuberant and  elegant” and I think are just divine.

I could talk you through shade by shade all the elements of the collection, but this is one case where justice is far better served by simply gaze in lust at all the products rather than needing the full rundown. Enjoy!

Drink from Ring Wine.. because

“I’ll just have a sip,” became a lot more accurate with the introduction of the ring finger wine. Nothing says “marry me” like a girl with a glass on her hand, right? This cute little ring can hold

Brought to us by Remy Martin (the cognac king) the rings are part of a design project to make cognac drinking sexy. Ring on the finger? Check. Mouth to fingers Check.

These desgns were made by Merve Kahraman and basically sex up ring pops as we know it. Plus every sip and the aromas will shoot up your nose. Whether or not that’s a good thing is up to you…

Dolluxe False Lashes All Dolled Up Review

Now I have a a hit or miss relationship with false eyelashes so I wasn’t sure of Dolluxe were going to work for me. They looked nice and fluttery in the pretty pink packaging, but would they equal to spidery loveliness on my eyelids? All too often falsies end up in a pile of tears with my eyes prickling, and me wailing I’ve wasted half an hour and some pocket money to NOT achieve lovely lashes.

Well these were recommended to me by the New York Lolitas (lovely stylish girls with clothes to die for) so I gave them a chance. The ones I chose were the number #4, All Dolled Up versions.

International Beauty Show New York 2013

The International Beauty Show is an enormous annual event in New York. It features  exhibition halls full of sparkling powders, wheezing hairdryers blowing out steam, and high cheery calls of dah-ling and bah-by! Students clutching purses full of twenties wandered the halls, slender feet encased in Uggs, and processed hair teased high.

Vendors attempt to lure them with giveaways, and heavily discounted products. They also had exciting new cosmetic lines to show.

The New York International Beauty Show is a great time to assess what the big beauty trends for the next year will be, and there was a lot to take in. I’m going to showcase some of the cool stuff on offer, and give you a nice little teaser for the months to come.

These Cobra Hairdressing shears were [pretty stunning. Love how they come with different handle designs.

Bright shades remain popular. Thick, heavy pigments were being sold by lots of brands.

This is a pretty cool look, a unique ponytail catcher that gives you that Xena Warrior Princess Look.

Just your average cool body art tutorial…

Little Mermaid walks on land : Walk with Princess Shoes!

The Little Mermaid is one of my all time favorite movies, so I screamed with excitement when I saw these shoes. Perfect on so many levels- I love the heel, the height, the mix of contrasting colors, and that they come adorned with Prince Eric and Ariel is simply too fabulous for words.

The heels are hand painted by Etsy Seller Ashton Atelier, and she’s a whizz at creating Disney Princess types on the bottom of your soles. Not only will she create Ariel- or Sleeping Beauty/ Cinderella etc, but she’ll also apply them to ANY pair of shoes you want, as you get to send her a pair to work with. Yes, that does make the whole princess a little pricier- and you’ll be without your shoes a while, but in return you get back a pair that you know fits well that has now had a major revamp.
