MAC Lipstick in Siss & Maggie Bags Cosmetic Bag

Let me start by saying that I’m a total Pinterest addict. One day I was on the hunt for the perfect nude lipstick for a dark skinned gal like myself, and low and behold, I found it. I found it in the MAC store, appropriately named Siss. Before I go any further, it doesn’t work as the perfect nude lip color as-is. Like many other brown skinned girls have forewarned, if you wear it alone, you will look like you consumed a box full of powdered donuts. So, to make this color work for my skin tone, I used my go to MAC lip liner, Chestnut, to darken the powdered donut mishegaas so it matched my skin tone EXACTLY.

The 64th Primetime Emmy® Style

The Emmys were on last night. While the show was moderately entertaining for an awards show, I wasn’t watching for the jokes, but for the DRESSES! Here are some of my favorites and not so favorites.

Heidi Klum

While I absolutely love the color, this Alexandre Vauthier dress misses the mark. One slit would have more than enough however, two slits up the skin baring quotient and makes the dress tacky. Further, Ms. Klum could have used a lot more support up top. With those two adjustments, this dress would have been a big hit.

Crazy about this color? Check out the Marina Gemstone Drop Earrings, and the Darlene Gemstone Bracelet in Seafoam.

Beautiful dress, great color but the lack of accessories does this dress a disservice. In my opinion, the Priya Cuff in 24k Gold would have made a lovely addition.

Sofia Vergara

Absolutely nothing wrong here. Sofia is working the hell out of this Zuhair Murad gown.

This dress is not working for me. It seems she’s missing the Carmen Miranda fruit salad headpiece.

This is one of my favorite ensembles of the evening. I love the simplicity of the white with black accents and minimal accessories. This is very reminiscent of old Hollywood glamour.
