Sephora + Pantone Marsala Color of the Year collection

Saturday, December 20, 2014

For once, the colour of the year is one that I think we can all appreciate: Marsala. It’s a little drab, a little red, and a little rustic — so, basically, a colour that I should hate (but totally don’t).

Unlike the bright green and violet that we’ve seen these past two years, Marsala is more or less wearable… maybe a little more on the less side, for us cool-toned girls. But it’s work-appropriate, at least, and that’s definitely a start!

And that rose gold packaging — I mean, Sephora isn’t even playing fair anymore.

Clinique custom phone cases & more | New 14/09/14

Sunday, September 14, 2014

New this week are a few long-awaited launches (like the NARS Audacious lipsticks), as well as a couple new-to-store ones (Charlotte Tilbury at Nordstrom, and that pastel Shiseido trio!) and a few unique items that caught my eye. If you’ve tried the new Micro.mini Beautyblenders, for instance, or that new Sephora makeup-removing lip gel, I’d be curious to hear what you thought of them! (And those new Bottega Veneta perfumes, hrrrnnnngh.)

New (& more than noteworthy)

Also upcoming this week is an event — and a very, very cool one at that. Manhattan residents are invited to the Clinique counter at Bloomingdale’s on 59th St. to receive a complimentary Smart Skin Consultation and create a customized smartphone case designed by fashion illustrator Brooke Hagel.

The event will be held this Thursday, September 18th, and while I obviously won’t get to go… I can only hope that one of you will take this opportunity to have a phone case custom-illustrated with Chubby Stick sketches!

What: Complimentary Smart Skin Consultations, a fall trend fashion preview, and a custom-illustrated phone case with the purchase of Clinique’s Smart Repair Serum.

When: Thursday, September 18, 6pm-8pm

Where: Bloomingdale’s 59th Street Beauty Studio (1000 3rd Ave at 59th Street, NY)

Pre-book an appointment at the counter or by calling (212) 705-2879.

Marcelle Trio+ Eyeshadows | (Also) New This Week

Marcelle Trio+ eyeshadow quads

They’re heeeere!

Teased last week by @MarcelleTweets (the brand’s English Twitter account), the brand-new Marcelle Trio+ Eyeshadow quads ($15.95 CAD) are now up for grabs through Marcelle’s online site. Perfume and paraben-free, the quads promise three intense, velvety powder eyeshadows with one ultra-glittery shade – exactly the way I like it.

Available now in six different colour palettes (but I only have eyes for Smoky Chestnut and Chocolate Vanille, of course — how beautifully do those look like they would swatch?!)

Hello, and welcome to another (drumroll please) New This Week!

This week, we have a whole slew of new launches this you, from brands high and low. But here are a couple highlights: sheet masks from Sephora Collection, a new fragrance from Bottega Veneta (finally!!), and 210 new eyeshadows from Make Up For Ever.

Sunday, July 13, 2014

I went over some beauty picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last Friday, but for those of you who aren’t Nordstrom members (or who live outside of the US), here are a few new makeup launches that anyone can buy!

This is a new style of widget, both on theNotice and generally on the internet, but I hope you like it. Let me know what you think!

(I’m especially intrigued by that limited-edition Estée Lauder Sculpting Foundation Brush):
