The Lipstick League – week of 10.15.12

Pantone has released the results of their New York fashion week findings – the fashion color report for spring 2013. Take a look, that’s the palette you’ll be wearing this spring. They call it “a palette that mixes dynamic brights with novel neutrals to create a harmonious balance”.

They’ve announced the 2013 color of the year too – replacing Tangerine Tango will be Monaco Blue. Hmm, not sure what I think about that. I could have stood behind Tender Shoots though!

Question of the Week: – What beauty product would you immediately hoard if you found out that it was going to be discontinued?

Answer: I use MAC blot powder everyday, so I’m going to have to go with that.

we heart this – took a tour of Marilyn Monroe’s Hollywood with MAC’s Gregory Arlt. Now, we’re sharing insider’s info about the collection (like, which Mad Men star inspired Love Goddess lipstick) and Marilyn’s beauty regime (ever wonder why she always looked so glowy? The answer will surprise you!)

  1. I like these colors much better than this year’s. Blue is my favorite color, so if that’s the color of 2013, I am completely behind it!

    I love these colors! I can see Monaco Blue being the color of 2013. Lots of blue on the runways. I also love ALL of the forecasted colors of 2013. They look great together!

    I would hoard my Jordanna Fabu Liner. in a heartbeat. It has become my top eyeliner in my stash and it’s a STEAL at $2.99! I found out about it through G (Nouveau Cheap) and it has blown me away.

    I’ve seen blue all over the place at the mall. I’m a Blue Devil, so I think that royal blue probably the best shade of blue there is, and Monaco Blue is pretty close. ;)

    There are so many products I’d hoard if they were going to be discontinued! The problem is cream/liquid products would go bad :( My foundation and cleanser are holy grail products.

    These are nice but am afraid, not really for me! I love wearing navy/royal blue but these other colors? I doubt it. I never adhere to what they say are the color(s) to sport around in! Rebel, I guess.. no, not at all, I just wear what I think looks good.

    What beauty product would I hoard if I found out that it was going to be discontinued? Easy, Shu Uemura’s LIQUID EYELINER PEN. Love it.. I would stock up on the refills! This pen is my fav. Ultra-precise lines and amazingly sharp bold strokes.
    My non-beauty product that I’d hoard is, Origins’s Leg Lifts. It’s the best product to give your tired legs a lift!
