LOTD: Jordin Sparks for bebe inspired

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

So the movie Sparkle debuted in the US a few weeks ago and it stars American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.  I never really watched the show, but I think she has a good voice and lately she has been everywhere with her new svelte, healthy body!  This is also the last movie done by one of the greatest voices of our time, Ms. Whitney Houston! I still in ah lil shock!

Anyway, so I saw this poster where Jordin Sparks appeared in an ad campaign for the clothing store bebe as a promo for Sparkle.

It was glamorous, without being over the top.  It was actually similar to a look that I did on Jannelle here, but with updated technique.  This would be a good Labour Day/Carnival look,  and it’s actually really simple.  A gold glitter.  And I used a new method of applying lashes that I picked up at The Makeup Show from artist Johnny LaVoy!  I even included a foundation (!), which I never wear, but I was intrigued when I purchased  it at the Mehron booth at IMATS NYC earlier this year.

Here’s the look!

Upcoming M.A.C. Collection – Metal X 2011

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Another collection coming out on December 26, 2011.  It think this is the 3rd incarmation of this type of product.  Actually, the Metal X premiered in 2007, but a few years before, there was another version of the creamy eyeshadow that was not received very well.  I have eye shadows from both of those collections and the 2007 set was a definite improvement on the previous kind, but they still were not well received.  So, just a warning.  I may pass on these, I have to see what they look and feel like in the store first.

So, again, these will be available from December 26th in North America and in January internationally.  All information is courtesy of M.A.C. and Specktra.net.

Shades of copper and gold from Inglot

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Inglot has just launched a new collection featuring shades of copper, ginger and gold.  This comes just in time for the holidays and I definitely need to check this out in person!!! This is perfect for fall and holiday parties.  Even those in milder climates would find this collection appealing. It kinda reminds me of the sunset.  The colours are warm and would work well with olive, tan and darker skintones.  This would also give a great smokey eye without the heaviness of black.  Paler skintones could find this as a good alternative to redder colours.

The collection includes:

  • Liquid Eyeliner – in metallic copper with a precision felt tip brush.  #19  USD$11.00

  • Sleeks Lip Gloss – in two new shades, both with a high dose of shine and nonstick formula. #27 and #28  USD$10.00

  • Lipstick – offered in two new shades of the pearl formula with modern frost texture.  #276 and #277  USD$12.00

  • Pearl Freedom System Eyeshadows  – #607P, #605P, #606P  USD$5.00

  • Double Sparkle Freedom System Eyeshadows – #609DS, #608DS   USD$5.00

This collection becomes available from Inglot USA online, Inglot stores and select Macy’s starting November 2011.  I am definitely going to check out the eyeshadows and lipsticks.

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Happy Labour Day to those in the U.S.! Sadly, summer is rapidly coming to an end.  It is already getting cool at night here in NYC. Le sigh….

Here’s a quick LOTD that I wore this weekend, matte grey with a pop of shimmery, royal sea blue.
