I can’t tell you how excited I am to write this post. The other day I got to experience the creation of Hard Candy Cosmetics Willy Wonka style. Myself and a few other bloggers were allowed to tour the NuWorld Beauty factory in Carteret NJ. They are the main manufacturer of all the products for Hard Candy Cosmetics. The factory also creates products for some other major beauty brands. This is a beauty junkie’s dream. It was hard for me to contain my excitement as we made our way through the factory.
Cutting-edge color—anything but straightlaced. For Holiday 2014, François Nars projects a bold new design for the future femme. Decoding the thrill of seduction, this captivating collection exposes a full range of colors and textures with dramatic dimension.
The custom packaging adapts architectural designer Chris Kabatsi’s digitally-rendered Nebula print into a dynamic yet delicate depiction. The intricate web of black gloss grips the signature soft-touch packaging in a modern take on lace.
Beauties, its holiday time. Can you believe it? We just broke up with summer and now we’re about to be in love with the Holidays. Holiday collections are my favorite. Brands happily pull out all of the stops with fancy glittery packaging and special limited edition offerings.
Allow me to introduce you to the NARS Holiday 2014 gifting collection.
Everyone knows that I am obsessed with doing my nails! PERIOD. So much so I’ve gotten super amazing at polishing them (no I am not doing your nails). So good that I nearly hate going to the salon because I have yet to be impressed by anyone who has ever done my nails.
Starting October 1st I am hosting my first (of hopefully many) InstagramPhoto-A-Day challenges. If you’ve never participated in an Instagram challenge don’t worry it’s SUPER easy and ridiculously fun. This one is all about lips because I couldn’t think of one beauty product I love more.
As a beauty editor I have tons of goodies at my desk (that everyone loves to borrow). Flat irons, hair sprays, lotions, perfumes…and of course nail polish! There’s probably about 10 bottles of polish on my desk now, and that’s after all of the borrowing.
So I decided to have a nail pamper party for some of the pretty girls at my office (all the girls are pretty, these are the girls with the best nails, LOL).
