We’ve tried a lot of lip products, and let’s be honest: as product junkies we rarely have complaints! Senna Cosmetics Lip Lacquers are no exception…we’re absolutely in love with them.

The formula is lightweight so it feels like a dream on our lips, while still allowing for big color payoff. It’s also surprisingly long wearing (lasted us an entire day running around during Fashion Week!), which means less time re-applying and more time looking fab.

Our only gripe is that we wish it were a bit easier to get product on the wand….but only because we love it so much and want tons of it on our lips!

Lip Lacquer is available in Sheer, Cream, Sparkling, and Pearl Glow formulas in a wide range of shades, each equally as covet-worthy. Try Pearl Glow in Sunkiss, a peachy rose new for Spring, and our current fave.


Beauty addicts rejoice: CHANEL’S new Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Colours inspired by the legendary ‘Coco’ Chanel have arrived! After taming our excitement, we ran into trouble deciding on a shade. We narrowed it down to Camelia (a deep rose), Legende (reddish-brown), and Paris (a sexy deep red), but finally ended with Paris. As was expected, the color glides on like a silk nightie and left our lips soft and luscious. ‘Coco’ would be proud.

CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour is available online at Neiman Marcus. $30

Backstage at Kardashian for Bebe Fall 2010, the look was all about day to night glamour, a look that can take you from the office to cocktails with little modification.

To translate this to the hair, Whitney Blischke for TIGI said that “Kim wanted an effortlessly glamorous look, and she liked this because it looks easy.” Blischke prepped hair with Fashionista Spritz and Shine before blowing out for texture. She then sectioned hair and wrapped around a barrel iron, pinning curls up to cool in order to hold curl. Once released, curls were finger combed to loosen wave, and roots were sprayed with Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo for a matte finish, while ends were sprayed with shine spray to give the illusion of darker roots and lighter ends, which is a huge trend in hair right now.

To create this, she applied Make Up Forever Aqua Eyes Liner in Star Black, Make Up Forever Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow and Make Up Forever Diamond Powder. For the skin: Dior’s Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup and YSL’s Touche Éclat Radiant Touch. Sephora Rouge Cream Lipstick in Mmmm… was pressed into the lips, after lining them with Sephora Nano Lip Liner in Candid Candy.

This season during New York Fashion Week, Butter London teamed up with designer duo Vena Cava to create a custom color (now named ‘Marrow’) which the designers debuted with their fall 2010 collection. Butter London’s Creative Director Nonie Creme refers to this new color as a “murky purple” and we’re loving it! Not too vampy, but just enough edge to add a little character. Yes, it’s nearly spring and everyone is stocking up on their toned-down taupes but we’re craving this darker shade. If you’re like us and too anxious to wait for fall, get the look with these similar purples:

Opi Brights
Purple with a Purpose
$6, Amazon

Call me Irresponsible

Purple Rain
$16, Sephora
Sole Mate

Senna Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer has taken the market by storm. The multi-tasking primer neutralizes eyelid tone, provides a smooth canvas for color, and keeps shadow vibrant all day. The added benefit of hydrolized hybiscus extract keeps eyes looking young by warding off fine lines. We tried it under shadow during the 12 hours days we’ve been keeping at Fashion Week, and it seriously gives a certain purple-bottled potion a run for it’s money.

$22, Senna Cosmetics
