Born In Flames
I would love to know what lipstick this is. I use NARS’ Scarlett Empress which is a great, semi-matte ripoff of the Chanel Vamp I could never lay my hands on in the 90s (I could have bought 3 CD singles by totally forgettable Britpop bands for the price of one tube!), but the color is a little too black and not enough berry for my liking, and I get tired of custom-mixing colors every time I wanna wear lipstick, you know?

Oh my god I want to play with all these beautiful chunky crayons.
In other news, I am visiting New York this weekend and I am out of Diorshow. Must replace ASAP, if I don’t show up looking like a wide-eyed baby deer (but with agency), I fear the city will eat me alive!!

YSL lipstick smells like rosewater

Weird, so does Givenchy lipstick and Dior eyeshadow. Why is that like the default scent for fancy cosmetics, it’s so old ladyish. That’s actually why I like the NARS semi-matte lipsticks the best. Coverage + staying power - scent = a damned good lipstick.

Without the eyeshadow, this look would be so very Great New York State Fair.

Ooh! We really want this too. Our roomate knows that we’re perfume freaks so he asked us to recommend some men’s colognes, and we told him he should definitely look into either Aesop or Comme des Garcons if he wanted to go super classy, or John Vartavos if he wanted something you could find at Sephora and wasn’t their usual horrible concoctions that set you back 60 bucks and you still smell like Designer Imposters or a bottle of Charlie. So, he got a sample of ‘Wonderwood’, and it wears so close to the skin that we had to, like, get right in there and smell his actual neck in order to smell it, which was weird, but it smelled SO SO SO GOOD. Definitely the best wood scent we’d ever tried.
And that reminds us, how come we bought that one boyfriend of ours a nice little bottle of CDG’s 2Man and he never even wore it? That was a very nice gesture of us, the way we bought it for no reason like that, and we really wanted him to smell like incense and leather. But he went right back to using the bottle of “Dior Higher” that his ex-girlfriend had given him, an overpriced, rankly offensive “sporty” cologne that burned your nose like Axe body spray or the terrible acridity of dry air on a zero degree day. I think he was still in love with that ex. I’m not sure that boyfriend ever appreciated us.

Now THIS is a screen idol simulation I could completely get behind. Enough with the Monroe/Birkin/Hepburn tribute editorials already, they’ve become clichés by now. And nothing will ever rival this lady’s way with a baleful stare.

This is so amazing — makeup artist Lisa Eldridge has been painstakingly collecting pieces from the 60s and 70s Biba makeup line and using them to create beautiful vintage-inspired looks like the one above. It’s like every Serge Lutens ad and Sarah Moon photograph all rolled up in a pair of spiky false eyelashes.
