8-in-1 Mineral Shimmers from that kiosk

You know the kiosk I’m talking about, right? It’s the one in the middle of your shopping mall, probably fairly close to the center.

Makeup Wars: favorite fall lipsticks

Makeup Wars: favorite fall lipsticks

I always enjoy digging through my stash to rediscover lipsticks that I had totally forgotten I had. When I do wear lipstick, I tend to always wear the same one for a few months, then change to another and wear that one for a few months.

James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry, created the look for Naeem Khan’s Spring/Summer 2015 runway show at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.

“Naeem’s inspiration this season was actress Lauren Bacall. We liked the idea of this classic, old Hollywood Naeem girl but a bit more ‘undone’. Fresh skin, glossy eyes and a stained lip is where we landed.”
