MAC Lipensity is HERE!


The eagle has landed! As in MAC Cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick have finally dropped and are now available for a limited time. Many of you saw their launch party on my snap — or every other beauty editors social media. No one wanted to miss this mega launch for the brand!

Maureen Seaberg, James Gager, Creative Director MAC Cosmetics and Jennifer Balbier, Senior VP Product Development MAC Cosmetics introducing MAC Liptensity to the audience

MAC is always pushing the boundaries of colour and finding new innovation. They aren’t afraid to color outside the lines and for this collection they partnered with tetrachromat (that’s a new vocab word for me too), Maureen Seaberg — who has the genetic ability to see up to 100 million hues imperceptible to the average naked eye. Let me break this down for you — if we as “normal” people see somewhere around the million shade spectrum, she would see 100 million. mac-liptensity-lipstick

Working with Maureen, M·A·C created, Liptensity, an unprecedented spectrum of 24 shades with extreme, undeniable colour intensity, using their new groundbreaking High-Frequency Tetrachromatic Pigments technology.


I highly recommend them. They go on like balms, and have this rich color that lasts. They are designed to be the same color on all skintones, and for me were incredibly true to shade. What you see on the packaging (which I love by the way) is what I got when I swatch it on my hands and on my lips.mac-lipensity-swatches
Left to right these are shades: Galaxy Grey, Lobster and Ambrosial. They are easy to apply, and you don’t have to build them. It’s love at first swipe, packed with gorgeous pigment and they are very lightweight.


Also new from MAC is their Trend Forecast Spring 2017 Collection which features a lip palette, eye palette and two new Studio Eye Gloss shades, Clear as Glass (pictured above), which is like lip gloss for your eyes. They are also introducing the Next Up Neon shade which is a high shine “iodine” yelloworange.

For spring 2017 MAC predicts shades of pale pink to deep berry, which I’m all for. It’s a beautiful, very wearable range of lippies. They go on like a gloss meets lipstick, a pretty stain to each shade that isn’t intense but still carries it’s shade.

The cream eye shadow palette I have to play around with more. It’s a whole spectrum of colors from soft cinnamon, pink to bright green, eggplant and denim blue.

PFW: Backstage Beauty Look at Carven S/S 2016

carven_beauty_look_makeupBackstage at the Carven Spring/Summer 2016 show lead makeup artist Nina Haverkamp for MAC Cosmetics created a “healthy, pure and sporty, no-makeup look”. The Carven girl is a very natural girl who knows how to dress and doesn’t need anything else to be a complete show stopper.


It’s that ‘I woke up this morning beautiful and healthy’ look we all wish we actually woke up looking like. And while it plays off the ‘no makeup makeup’ that’s been such a big trend for the past season there is a uniqueness to this look in the transparency in the skin and technique.

MAC Cosmetics launches Mia Moretti Collection at Coachella


One of our favorite parties during Coachella for both myself and Patricia Field was the poolside bash hosted by MAC Cosmetics for the launch of their festival inspired collection with DJ superstar, Mia Moretti. Filled with a beautiful range of peach-tones, pinks to reds, the seven piece collection (plus makeup bag and tote!), consists of two lipsticks, a six shade lipstick palette, and four color creme’s which can be used on cheeks, lids and lips. While catching up with the Moretti, she chatted about how much she wanted to create a very wearable collection using colors she would actually wear and could also envision women wanting to carry around in their makeup case.

NYFW: Ruffian Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show (+ finale video)

For the Spring/Summer 2013 show, Ruffian wanted to explore their love of couture within the context of Williamsburg, Brooklyn where they live. While the word couture didn’t come to mind when watching the models walk down the runway, it did make me reminiscent of my years living on Bedford Avenue. Sure, their were hipster elements – skinnies with oversized top,  printed pants, skirts and tops, (and all matched with Converse) — but it wasn’t contrived or trying to hard. The contrast of the baroque counterbalanced the minimalism, street style, and luxury fabrics that were cut into classic American utilitarian shapes.

I took a video of the finale for you:)


Favorite looks… (I love the relaxed comfort of it all and the styling with Converse}
