Texas Size Your Nail Color

18 May

OPI is doing color in a big way this summer…Texas big!

With a slight transparent effect and shades ranging from striking tangerine to luscious purple, these polishes are playfully reminiscent of summertime sorbet treats. And with Lone Star State inspired names like “Houston We Have A Purple” and “Big Hair…Big Nails” who could resist?

You’re Never Fully Dressed…

13 May

Without a tan! Nothing says summer like backyard BBQ’s, days at the beach, and the healthy glow of bronzed skin. We all know the dangers of too much sun exposure, but self tanning can lead to unpleasant orange skin tones and unsightly streaks. That’s where the folks at Fake Bake come in. They’ve developed a multitude of self tanning products from natural ingredients that are guaranteed not to streak, give you orange skin, or stain your clothes. Here’s a couple of my personal favorite products from Fake Bake.

My first pick is the Flawless Self Tan with Mitt. It’s an instant self-tan liquid that comes with a professional mitt for easy application.  The non-sticky formula “shows-where-it-goes” so you’re sure not to miss a spot. The formula is also fast-drying so it doesn’t transfer onto any of your garments or upholstery.

Nothing is worse than losing a tan that you’ve worked so hard to get. So next we have the Gelee Daily Wash. This is a daily body wash that’s been specifically developed from all natural anti-oxidants and ingredients to maintain your tan.  You’ll stay a bronzed beach babe (or dude) all summer long.

Fake Bake products solve all your woes associated with self tanning. These are just two of many amazing products that Fake Bake has to offer. Click here to visit their website. And happy (fake) tanning!

Perez Hilton Looks Perezcious In In Touch

2 Sep

Perez Hilton has never looked better—and we’d like to take some of the credit. The slimmed down blogger wears a pair of our dark standard straight leg jeans (in UNDER CAST) that makes his gams look like a million bucks. Talking about the mega weight loss, Perez says “I was so unhealthy and overweight—so I made changes in little bits.” And sartorially speaking, Perezzers, we love the new you. Next up on the “Queen of all Media’s” busy sked? Finding a boy! We suggest he wears some more of our denim on the first date—nothing like lucky number 7.

A Lipstick Made Just For Jeans!

30 Aug

Since the dawn of denim, ladies knew that to augment their beloved blues with a quick glam fix, they needed nothing more than a tube of solid, tried-and-true red lipstick. Poppy King, the mastermind of hot makeup line the Lipstick Queen took this age-old fact seriously and set out to create the perfect ‘stick for blue jeans, producing the all-purpose (and appropriately named) Jean Queen lipstick.

Meant to enhance the blue in the denim, the lipstick and glosses all have a hint of rose and a cool undertone to brighten up the face. The collection’s gloss is slightly more opaque for impact, while the lipstick has plenty of shine (but no glitter) to enhance the matte of jeans. Toss it in your favorite pair of 7’s back pocket to  keep your casual beauty routine deceptively basic—don’t worry, the shade goes with everything! ($25, available here).

The Latest Blue Makeup Craze Means Denim Is No Longer Just For Jeans

24 Aug

 
Denim hues aren’t just for jeans come September. Makeup is taking a bold inspiration from our fave jeans for a trend that would make the Smurfs jealous. Sure, blue can get us down: Ke$ha’s lips at her ‘Shock the World’ performance looked too popsicle-y and the jury’s still out on Juliette Lewis, but bright, bold aquas and marines are ready to pop this fall.

And just like your favorite pair of jeans, blues can either be a subtle highlight or a dramatic statement. The midnight hue of Estée Lauder Blue Dahlia polish is totally on trend for autumn, intense but not over-the-top. For eyes, work in the season’s metallic craze with a bold swipe of Too Faced’s liquid liner in Restraining order (stick to straight lines for impact). Or soften eyes with a hint of cornflower: M·A·C‘s Winkle satin shade looks great on all skin tones. Finally, if you think Ke$ha has the right idea but just the wrong application, try Tokidoki’s Prisma Lip Gloss in Ninja Dog, which has a light shine and a subtle blue (good for brightening teeth), skipping the just-ate-an-Icy-Pop look. Years of wearing jeans have taught us that really, blue goes with everything!
