Image via makeupforlife


Emma Stone kept things casual for the 2014 Met Gala, both with her makeup and her outfit. She looked rosy from head to toe, with loosely braided red hair, a two-tone pink dress, and fresh makeup. Acclaimed makeup artist Rachel Goodwin created this look for Emma’s big night, using a mix of Chanel and Revlon cosmetics. Here are the exact makeup products she used (all prices are in US dollars):

  • Chanel Le Jour De Chanel Resynchronizing Skincare ($85, Nordstrom)
  • Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smooth Effect Makeup SPF 15 in Beige 30 ($45, Nordstrom)
  • Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Peach Light ($12.99, Ulta)

  • Revlon Nail Enamel in Diamond Texture ($4.99, Ulta)

Emma was outfitted in a Thakoon dress for the big night. She completed the look with chic Miu Miu heels, a cute clutch from Tod’s, and jewelry from Graziela Gems and EF Collection. Thakoon is one of my favorite designers, but I don’t know if this is the best pick for an event as big and detail-oriented as the Met Gala. I liked the play on color, but the shape, color, and crop top all seem a little homemade prom dress to me. This was honestly one of my least favorite looks of the event. 
What do you think of Emma’s Met Gala look? Let me know!

Beauty Royale: MAC Viva Glam Gaga VS Revlon Cupcake

As consumers, we’re always comparing products: quality vs. quantity, high-end vs. drugstore, warm vs. cool, MAC vs. other brands, etc. This is where public opinion like beauty blogs really come in handy: you can see comparisons of products you’re interested in without the financial and time investments. And it’s also fun for the blogger–making life easier and helpful for your readers.

Hence, PV brings you the Beauty Royale, a category dedicated to weighing products. While dupes are obvious to include in these kinds of posts, there’s also those curious comparisons included here, those more vague “how does X measure up to Y?” kind of comparisons. If it assess two items (and likely comes to a winner at the end), it qualifies under Beauty Royale.

The first round is a pretty straightforward battle between lippies: Is Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Butter in Cupcake a dupe for MAC’s Viva Glam Gaga lipstick? Let’s take a look!

MAC Viva Glam Gaga:

As you can see from the pic above, this lippie is well loved and well used on my part. It’s a cool-toned baby pink with a creamy finish (I believe it’s in MAC’s creamsheen formula). This lipstick is no longer available, but was $14.50 when I bought it. It has a bit of an application issue (bunches up a little but looks fine from a normal distance). This is vanilla scented.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Cupcake:
Since I believe Cupcake and VGG are so close, I tend to use this pretty often (especially on those days when I want the VGG look without dipping into my tube!) Cupcake is also a cool toned baby pink, though it looks a bit more shimmery in the tube. Lip Butters are easily available at any corner drugstore for about $7.49 each. This feels really creamy on but also has the similar issue of bunching up during application.
One layer of MAC VGG & Revlon Cupcake. VGG appears darker and a solid cream finish, whereas Cupcake seems lighter, cooler, and shimmery. However, the differences are only really noticeable in the swatches; they look much more alike on the mouth.
Cupcake on the top lip, Viva Glam Gaga on the bottom lip.
How do they compare?
-The (on the lips) color, pigmentation, and application is equal.
Cupcake wore longer.
Both lipsticks feel creamy going on, and have a glossy sheen. 
-VGG faded better (evenly).
-Neither of these were drying (and felt equally moisturizing).
VGG has better (sturdier, chicer) packaging.

Cupcake is cheaper (and still available for purchase).
VGG scored higher when reviewed.
VGG has a lovely vanilla scent.

And the winner is…

Viva Glam Gaga!
Although the two products strike even in most fields (and I still totally recommend Cupcake to those looking for a color like this), the original can’t be beat. I’m partial to VGG because it caused my love for lip colors like this, and I feel like the product feels more expensive on the lips. 
Although Cupcake didn’t come out on top, I’m still very glad I have a great dupe for the sad day when my tube of VGG runs out 😦

Face of the Day 03

This is my own photo.

One of the things I love about makeup is the ability to play. You can reuse several products to achieve different results, or combine an eyeliner with a different shadow color, or pair a new gloss over a long loved lipstick an achieve a wholly new effect. Today, I use some of my tried and true favorites paired with new loves and achieved a look that I ended up really liking.
This is my own photo.

Here are the products I used an the order I used them:

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool all over the lid.
-Shiro Cosmetics Loose Eyeshadow in Detective all over the lid.
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Junkie on the lower lashline/waterline.
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara on top lashes only.
ELF Blush in Pink Passion on the apples and blended towards the temples.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake
-Avon Brow Pencil


I don’t usually rock liner on my lower lashline, but since the shadow has a strong glittery effect, I didn’t want the color to compete with it. So I tried it down below and loved the results! I mentioned in my review that Detective dries sheerer than it applies, and once I got Too Cool I knew instantly I’d love the way the two would look together. The results are as lovely as I expected! Here’s a pic to show you how it really glitters (sorry for the fallout!)
This is my own photo.

Isn’t it lovely? What makeup did you rock today?

Sweet Makeup for Valentine’s Day!

Valentine’s Day tends to bring several things to mind: flowers, sweets, and hearts. Whether you’re coupled up this holiday or celebrating your own fierceness, makeup brands have plenty of goodies to treat yourself to that match the romantic theme. To get you lovelies in the holiday spirit, I thought I’d share the sugariest, rosiest cosmetic delights to make your holiday a little sweeter. Consider it my gift to you, Valentines! xoxo

Flowers:

1) Milani Illuminating Face Powder ($9.79 USD) 
These blushes/highlighters are embossed with a girly rose pattern, making the pan as pretty as the color on your cheeks. There’s also talk of Milani repromoting their limited-edition Coming Up Roses blushers, which feature one large rose print, versus the small several blooms seen in the Illuminating Face Powders.

2) Flower Beauty
This line of cosmetics was founded by Drew Barrymore and is available exclusively at Wal-Mart. I love both Drew and cosmetics (obviously!) so I’m dying to try things from this line. The Kiss Stick High-Shine Lipstick (pictured above) range looks sleek for drugstore, and all the shades are named after flowers (the one shown is Morning Glory). The line is fully-developed, with products for face, eyes, lips, and nails. Let me know if you’ve tried anything from this range and what you thought of it!
Also check out: Benefit Dandelion ($28), Benefit Posietint ($30), Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Cool Lilac ($24), Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Rose ($42), Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Carnation/Rose, ($25 each), Clinique Cheek Pop ($21), Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening Blush in Petal ($44), Dior Dior Addict Gloss in Bed of Roses ($29.50), Guerlain Rouge Automatique in Cherry Blossom ($36), Lancome Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Roses in Love ($28.50), L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinary Lip Color in Rose Melody ($9.99), MAC Eyeshadow in Beautiful Iris ($15), MAC Lipstick in Fleur D’Coral, Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte in Rose Culte ($35)
Sweets:

1) Vera Wang Princess ($45-75 USD)
Who doesn’t want to smell delicious on date night? This fragrance is my favorite scent, very feminine and sweet, without being overpowering. The tasty notes in this scent make it perfect for a romantic occasion like V-Day. Ulta’s site claims the tasty top notes in this scent are water lily, lady apple, mandarin meringue, and golden apricot skin, followed by pink guava, Tahitian flower, wild tuberose, and dark chocolate, then finally pink frosting accord, precious amber, forbidden woods, royal musk captive, and chiffon vanilla. Say it with me: “Yum!” I’d still recommend this to those that don’t like food scents, as the floral in this notes water down any food flavors, so the fragrance smells quite balanced.

2) Revlon Lip Butters ($7.49 USD each)
Like most beauty bloggers, I’ve sung the praises of these cute little lippies. And now I recommend them one more time. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to sport a girly lip color, and this line has you covered, no matter what your confident-lip-look is (for me, it’s pink, so I adore Cupcake, pictured above). Not only is every shade in the line named after a sweet dessert or fresh fruit, but the hydrating formula will keep your lips kissable ’til the end of the night.
Also check out: Benefit Lollitint ($30), Benefit Sugarbomb ($28), Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Nectar ($42), Bobbie Brown Lip Color in Brownie/Blackberry ($25 each), Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey ($15), Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Sugar Coated ($5.99), Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment ($22.50), Lancome L’Absolu Rouge in Champagne ($30), Lancome Rouge in Love Lipcolor in Pink Bonbon ($28.50) Lavanilla Fragrances ($19-58), Make Up For Ever Eyeshadow in Espresso ($21), MAC Eyeshadow in Blackberry ($15), MAC Lipstick in Candy Yum Yum ($16), Philosophy Cinnamon Buns Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath ($17), Too Faced The Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette ($49), Too Faced La Creme Lipsticks ($22 each), Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Vanilla ($18), Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte in Peach Passion ($35) 
Hearts:
Image via Sephora

1) Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush ($30 USD)
These blushes have made a splash since they appeared in the beauty blogosphere. I haven’t had a chance to try them, but the tri-hued powders look large enough to use separately or swirled together. Either way, the powder looks adorable, not just for the candy colors, but in the sweet heart-shaped tin, too.
Image via Sephora

2) Illamasqua Nail Varnish in Throb ($17 USD)
For me, Illamasqua’s bread and butter product is their nail varnish line. Why not coat your nails in fierce, classic red this holiday? This lacquer line is on the pricey side, but this heart-hued red is the perfect accent to your romantic date look. 
Also check out: Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Sweetheart ($6.99), Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 4-Kit Shadows in Pure Romance ($5.99), Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick in Tender Love ($32), Illamasqua Powder Blusher in Lover ($26), Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Crush ($26), Kat Von D Everlasting Blush in Heartagram ($25), Kat Von D Shade Shifter Eyeshadow in Love Letter ($16), Kat Von D Everlasting Love Liquid Lipstick in L.U.V.

2014 Golden Globes Roundup: Emma Stone Makeup and Fashion

Image via Starstyle

Last night, Sunday, January 12th, was the 71st Golden Globes award ceremony, broadcast live from the Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills, California. There, American t.v. and films from 2013 were honored. As with any major awards show, there were plenty of stars sporting fierce makeup, and since I missed the airing, I’m excited to see who wore what (both cosmetically and in terms of fashion). 
So kicking off my first Roundup since last year’s Kid’s Choice Awards (I know, I skipped many, and I’m sorry!), is Emma Stone. The beautiful 25 year old presented the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award to director Woody Allen. 

I always think it’s fantastic when someone mixes both high-end and drugstore into their look, and Emma was not afraid to do this. The actress combined Chanel and Revlon products to create her fresh face. The products she used are:
Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation ($45 USD, Nordstrom)
-Revlon Highlighting Palette in Peach Glow ($10.99 USD, Ulta)
-Revlon Colorstay ShadowLinks in Gunmetal and Taupe ($2.99 USD each, Ulta)
-Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in Noir ($30 USD, Nordstrom)
-Revlon Powder Blush in Oh! Baby Pink ($9.99 USD, Ulta)
-Revlon Colorstay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey ($8.99 USD, Ulta)
Total face cost: $110.95

What do you think of Emma’s Golden Globes look? I think her makeup is wearable and easy to re-create. Much of it is affordable and accessible, too.
Psst, to all you fashion lovers: her gorgeous dress, clutch, and jewelry are also by Chanel, and her shoes are Louboutins.

Pantone’s Color of the Year 2014: Radiant Orchid!

Image via Pantone

It was recently announced via Pantone’s Twitter that 2014’s Color of the Year will be Radiant Orchid! This is very exciting, because purple is one of my favorite colors. I also believe different shades of purple can look beautiful and flattering on every skin tone, and there’s endless ways to wear the shade. And luckily for us cosmetic junkies, there’s iterations of this shade of tremendous quality at all price points. Below are some purple products to get you in the Radiant Orchid spirit (in order of ascending price):
Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon 8-Pan Palette in Petal Pusher:

This gorgeous palette comes with a range of purple shades. Stocked at most drugstores, it should be easy to find, and isn’t hard on the wallet, either. $4.99 USD.
Revlon Lip Butter in Gumdrop:

The famous line of hydrating lipsticks has an adorable lavender shade. Read the review here. $7.49 USD
Essie Nail Polish in Lilacism:

A darling in the cosmetic world ever since it’s release, Essie’s Lilacism is the perfect light purple shade for the spring time. $8.50 USD.
MAC Lipstick in Heroine:

I remember this shade selling out in moments after it’s limited-edition release. However, MAC smartly added the popular shade to it’s permanent range, just in time for orchid’s big moment in 2014. $15 USD.
Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in Hoochie:

Image via Sephora

OCC’s lip tars are fantastic, especially since they’ve managed to tame the drying effects of the matte formula. The shade Hoochie is bound to get you noticed in style. $18 USD.
Make Up For Ever Powder Blush in Lavender 9:

Image via Sephora

MUFE is a quality brand that I can rely on for unusual shades, like purple blush, in a top notch formula. $21 USD.
NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Jolie Poupee:

NARS duos are famous for their exceptional quality and stylish shade pairings. This pretty purple compact is right on trend for next year. $34 USD.

Back to School Makeup

It’s that time of year again, when makeup needs to simple and quick to help students achieve a fresh-faced look on early mornings. The great thing about this sort of makeup is that it’s easy to customize: if you have trouble-free skin, skip foundation. If you have soft, pigmented lips, skip a lip color. It fits all women (we’ve all been there), all races, and all budgets. And generally, back to school makeup is limitless: if you want a little color or want to experiment with a new technique, this is a place without rules that’ll allow you to go for it (given you don’t hold yourself back by caring what others think-which you shouldn’t!)

(P.S., all of these images are via Beautylish)

So, let’s get started. First, the face. Foundation helps with achieving a smooth, fresh, awake look, but can vary widely depending on your needs. Whatever you choose, it should feel light and comfortable on the skin for a full day of wear. I like Maybelline Fit Me! Foundation for sheer coverage, while Revlon Colorstay is a popular drugstore option that covers a bit more. Depending on the condition of your skin, concealer may be an even more important step than foundation, as it does more to achieve the awake glow by hiding dark circles and redness. Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer is a full-coverage option in 20 shades. Truthfully, any setting powder that doesn’t cake will help you stay matte and get the job done. MAC Prep + Prime Transparent Finishing Powder remains a popular choice.

For eyes, a simple color wash/highlight adds life to the face and helps you look more awake. Urban Decay Naked Basics has great neutral options for a serious student. Wet ‘n’ Wild makes great trios in soft shades of color that are good quality for those who want to experiment with hues that are a little more bold. Black or brown liner is a great and common choice-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils are still the best of the best. Any mascara that you love will work for class; my favorite is Maybelline Colossal Volum’Express.

And the finishing touches: blush is another one of those whatever-you-like products that will work well for school. Powder, cream, pink, peach, coral, shimmery, matte, whatever. NARS Blush is arguably what the brand does best, but the drugstore is full of awesome picks; I’ve heard great things about Wet ‘n’ Wild’s in particular. For lips, you can have a bit of fun, especially in high school. I like Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss for sheer, fun color. If you prefer a more natural look, Maybelline Baby Lips balm instantly makes your lips look better, while adding a nice, natural shine.

Finally, if you’re really in a rush, don’t forget time savers! A dark shadow can be used wet in place of liner, a soft, shimmery shadow can also be used as a cheek highlighter, and multipurpose products, like NARS The Multiple can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips (in a pinch, any cream product can generally be used the same way-make sure they’re eye/lip safe first!).
 

What did you wear on your first day back to school?

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop Review

Image via Beautylish

If you want to know a secret, I don’t own many lip glosses. I own three to be exact: 2 are from MAC, and the other is Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop. While gloss isn’t my forte, I was pleasantly surprised by the way this affordable option performed. While it certainly doesn’t make the lips “pop,” the semi-sheer formula adds a nice watermelon colored rosiness to my lips (my lips are naturally more pigmented, though. If your lips are paler, the color payoff may be more intense). While not being opaque, the color was cute simple. The formula also contains SPF 15.
This formula has a thick texture, thicker than MAC Lipglass. It also has a synthetic, candy-like scent that I can’t quite put my finger on. It isn’t pleasing, but it doesn’t smell bad, either. However, the formula went on evenly, and didn’t settle into lip lines or bunch up.  This was also true to the “Super Lustrous” name. It imparted a healthy, wet shine.  It had no shimmer, and seemed almost jelly-like on the lips. I imagine this would work great layered over lipsticks. 
In terms of wear, Pink Pop is average. By two hours, the color began to wear away (evenly). There was still great shine, but the pigment was fading. There was still a rosy pink tinge, but my natural lip color was showing through. At 3 hours it felt tacky and still had a nice sheen, but is functioning more like a clear gloss-there was just the slightest pink tinge left. By 4 hours there was just a tacky residue left on the mouth; the color and shine were almost wholly gone. However, it wore away evenly, and didn’t feel uncomfortable on or dry out my lips.

The Super Lustrous line of lip gloss comes in clear, rectangular plastic tubes with shiny, black, screw-on caps. The applicator is in the traditional doe-foot shape, and it works well enough. The size of the packaging is a little larger all around than MAC, but I don’t find them any more difficult or challenging to store. They’re sturdy enough to travel with, and the wand does not feel flimsy or at risk of breaking.

SL glosses contain 0.13 oz of product in them, which is less than average (MAC’s are 0.17 oz each). However, since this is a drugstore product, it’s obviously cheaper, both at face value and price-per-ounce. One Revlon SL gloss will set you back only $7.99 USD ($61.46 per ounce), whereas MAC runs for $15 USD (or $88.24 per ounce). While this is definitely an affordable option, it is important to consider what is important to you as a conusmer-the SL range does not provide the same color payoff or amount of options a higher-priced brand, like MAC, does, despite similar textures and wear time.

Revlon products are very easy to find. They’re stocked in nearly every corner drugstore, like Walgreen’s and CVS, as well as in bigger retailers and super-centers, like Target and Wal-Mart, as well at specialty shops, like Ulta. Nearly every town, no matter how small, has at least one of this shopping destinations, making finding a Revlon product painless. Revlon complies with local animal testing laws (cruelty-free in Europe, tested and sold in China). So depending on your animal-testing preferences, this may be a deal-breaker.

Color: 4/5
Wear: 5/5
Formula: 4/5
Packaging: 4.5/5
Price: 4/5
Wow Factor: 3/5
Overall: 4.1 (B-)
Recommend: Yes, for those looking for sheer, subtle, daytime color, those who like high-shine or layering glosses, and those who don’t mind a thick/tacky texture.

Revlon products can be found at drugstores, super-centers, and at cosmetic shops like Ulta.  medianet_width=’600′; medianet_height= ‘250’; medianet_crid=’228266391′;
