Christina Hendricks Wears New NARS Pure Matte Lipstick to “Mad Men” Season 4 Premiere


NARS Cosmetics worked with celebrity makeup artist Vanessa Scali to create the makeup look for Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks at the Season 4 premiere last night, July 20, 2010.  NARS’ Pure Matte Lipstick was integral to her look, along with other products from NARS’ Fall 2010 Color Collection. 

“Christina’s sultry Dolce & Gabbana dress inspired a softer version of the 'La Dolce Vita' makeup look. We kept it modern by using Bangkok Pure Matte Lipstick, which is a soft matte rose color for her lips,” says Vanessa Scali.
Christina’s look was achieved using the following NARS products:


 Pure Matte Lipstick will be available September 1 at Saks Fifth Avenue. All other products are available at narscosmetics.com.

What do you think of her look? And can you WAIT for the premiere on Sunday?

Shobha Fresh Face Pack


Ladies, my two favorite items from Shobha are now available in a pack together for just $19 ($25 value). In-salon only, get a pouch of Shobha Rosewater Cleansing Cloths and a Shobha Brow Pencil in either Sand or Earth.



The Shobha Rosewater Cleansing Cloths are one of my most hoarded items. I love that they smell divine and are good for your face, hands AND body. How many wipes can say that? They're perf for tossing in your purse during this hotpocalypse we're having.

The Shobha Brow Pencil in Sand is exactly my hard-to-match dirty-blonde-not-quite-brown-but-almost shade. It's not too warm, as many pencils tend to be. Best of all, it comes with its own sharpener, which lives on its cap. Genius.

The combo is available only at Shobha locations! Snag one today.

1-Day AcuVue TruEye Contact Lenses Review


Though I've been rocking contacts since seventh grade, I've never tried 1-day disposables. I've always been the 1-2 week kind of gal. It always seemed too indulgent, too expensive to have EVERY day be new contact day. It's still not in my budget to have every day be new contact day, but I've decided to revise my financials so that I can integrate AcuVue TruEyes into my lifestyle for vacations and intermittently even when I'm at home.


How do they differ from other dailies disposables? 1-Day Acuvue TruEye is the first daily disposable contact lens manufactured using a new breathable silicone hydrogel material called Narafilcon B--a silicone hydrogel material saturated with a locked-in wetting agent which does not slow release onto the eye.  Narafilcon B delivers 98% oxygen flux to the cornea.  They also boast the highest level of UV-blocking available in a lens, so you'll be protected from the sun.


What did that mean for me? Since my schedule is such that I run to usually two post-work events THEN come home and either write an article either for another site or my own until midnight or 1am, my contacts put in long hours. As you can imagine, rocking my contacts until such a wee hour (is there a wee-er hour than 1? I think not) my eyes get dry, a little irritated and it feels great to pluck them out at the end of the night. My AcuVue Oaysis ameliorated the situation considerably (and I'm still wearing them interchangeably with the TruEyes), but I find that with the new TruEyes, my eyes feel more like I've just put in my contacts for the day.  In fact, I've even gotten in bed with them on. Which is fine, because since there's no need to fuss with storage and solution, I can just pluck 'em out and toss them from there. Bonus: You'll save money on skipping expensive contact lens solution as well.

I was prescribed AcuVue TruEyes by my eye doctor, Dr. Resnick. Once again, my eyes actually improved a slight bit (she said it could be because of the high oxygen transmission), so I was psyched. If you're in the market for a fantastic eye doctor, hit her up for an appointment. Dr. Resnick is located at 30 East 60th Street New York, NY. Call 212-355-5145 to make an appointment with her.

Do you wear contacts? Do you have disposables? Tell me if yours are blowing your hair back in the comments.
