Are You Feeling This? Nicki Minaj for OUT Magazine

Nicki Nicki Nicki.  Such a divisive character.  People either love her or they hate her.  Why she evokes such strong reactions I don't know.  I don't have strong feelings about her either way.  I look at her for what she is - an entertainer.  In this spread for OUT Magazine she puts a whimsical twist on her playful, colorful persona.  It's more stylized and a little surreal.  I.  LOVE.  IT.

Are You Feeling This? Kelly Rowland for YRB Magazine

Kelly Rowland is ramping up the promotion for her upcoming third solo album. She recently shot with photographer Mike Ruiz, who I love, and here are a few pics from the session. The shoot was done for YRB Magazine and the above picture features Kelly rocking a design by The Blonds. I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Blonds. If I can ever make it to New York Fashion Week (I'm looking at 2011) that is the ONE show that I would die to see!

My Secret to Clear Skin

I have found my cleansing HG (Holy Grail). I am always in search of the best cleanser, moisturizer, mask, etc. It's hard to find that one product that you can count on and go back to time and time again.

Review: Rock & Republic Blush in "Kinky"

Rock and Republic is a premium denim brand made famous for its celebrity clientèle and its collaborations, namely their collection with Victoria Beckham. What a lot of people don't know is that the brand also has a line of cosmetics. It debuted in the fall of 2008 and was sold at Rock & Republic stores as well as high end department stores like Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. It has since been pulled and can only be found at R&R stores and on their website. I think the main reason that this line didn't catch on was the price point. The blush is $40. There is a highlighting and bronzing powder duo that is $225. O_o WHOA! The line is extensive including lip gloss, pressed powder, blush, eyeshadow, tinted primer, etc. But, I think the price point - even for a luxury brand - was certainly a hurdle for them, especially in this economy. Luckily, I was able to catch a sale on HauteLook, which is an online sample sale site. The Rock & Republic cosmetics were 50% off. So, enough of that. Onto the blush!
