Kat Von D and I share a mutual friend and her name is Agatha Blois. Agatha is one of the most talented people I have ever come across in my lifetime and I can sit and watch her create for hours and never be bored. She is the most incredible leather clothing designer and I hesitate saying clothing since there is nothing Agatha cannot do or work with. Anyteeway, I went to Sephora with HashtagEmoChild last night and saw Kat’s new lipstick colors and saw one named Agatha. Now, I am assuming this was named for our friend, but she has never worn nude lips for the 16 years I’ve known her, BUT….this pinky nude color is TO DIE FOR. They were out of it, but I am getting it. It is MAJOR. Update: it’s even out of stock on Sephora’s website!
Could this be any more brill? Leave it up to the magical minds of Sephora to put a twist on the ol’ push up pencil from 1976. This is perfect for travel, overnights, or even one-night-stands where the walk of shame without make up just won’t do. Sephora’s Brush Wand is $12 and you get 4 brushes in one. Amazing. Get yours here.
More important to me than even black eyeliner, is skincare. You can skimp all you want on cosmetics, but since I was 16 years old, I would spend most of my money on fashion and quality skincare (though back in the ’80’s that meant Clinique). I pride myself on testing as many products as I physically can so I can speak from experience instead of hearsay and with AMORE PACIFIC, that is most definitely the case. I have been a devoted fan of the Korean line of skin care for many years. I have also gotten many compliments over the years on my flawless skin and I attribute that to Amore Pacific. The best thing is? It’s now available at Sephora as well as Neimans. I am a devotee of the Moisture Bound line though all of them are flawless. I use their moisture bound lippy as well and I swear nothing in the world makes my lips feel as soft as this does. Their moisturizing eye gel is, in a word, delicious and kids, if you ask me eye creams should be started at puberty for girls. With that said, you will be the happiest you have ever been with your skin if you start on AP today. The most exciting part of all? Paraben-freakin-FREE! LOVE LOVE LOVE.
It’s a big deal for an upstart company like my friend David with his incredible line of makeup OCC, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics that he started in his house, to be sold in Sephora. I am proud to say that starting in the fall that is the case! No longer will you wonder how to get your hands on the world famous Lip Tars worn by every drag queen now celebrities alike. My fave colors are Mesh, Femme, Interlace, Hush, Ophelia and Digitalis and EVERYONE needs a Feathered to lighten every single color they sell, just mix em and rock em! They are pure pigment so a little goes a verrrrrry long way. I’ve just started using his new concealers as well and they are amazing, so excited for this line to continue to grow and succeed. Congrats to David and the gang!
