MAC Viva Glam Rihanna


The fierce, bold, and sexy songstress Rihanna is the newest collaboration in MAC's Viva Glam collection. The products consist of a bright blue-red frost lipstick and matching lipglass. The products make the perfect lip duo and add a pop of colour to any look. Channel your inner Taylor Swift and wear it during the day or save it for a special occasion at night, either way you can't go wrong!

The packaging of this collection is also gorgeous. The velvety matte red is a nice contrast to the regular glossy black MAC packaging. RiRi's signature is also a nice touch to represent the collaboration. 

I love MAC lipsticks for their smooth and pigmented formulas. At first I was slightly intimidated by the frost finish but I was happily surprised when I put it on. The frost isn't too noticeable especially if you put the lipglass overtop. The lipglass has a slightly heavy formula but the colour and sparkle in it is really pretty. 

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick $19 CAD

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipglass $18 CAD

Not only are both products amazing, but every cent from your purchase goes towards the MAC AIDS Fund which benefits men, women, and children who are living with HIV/AIDS. Will you be picking up anything from the collection?

Katy Perry Concert

This past weekend I was lucky enough to see Katy Perry live in concert twice! The Prismatic World Tour was full of bright sets, extravagant props, incredible backup dancers, and beautiful costumes. All of Katy's costumes were custom made for her tour by designers such as Valentino, Moschino, and Roberto Cavalli just to name a few. Earlier in the year, Katy took to instagram to give her fans a preview of what was to come by revealing the designers' sketches. Seeing those sketches come to life was absolutely amazing! The two hour set included almost all of her singles all the way from I Kissed a Girl to her latest song Birthday with a focus on songs from her most recent album Prism.

One of my favourite looks for the night were a gorgeous Valentino gown with a butterfly cape worn for her acoustic portion of the set. The cape glittered beautifully in the light and the dress flowed gracefully across the stage.

The other standout fashion moment was the beautiful ball-gown skirt and jumpsuit adorned with bright and colourful fireworks for the encore of her inspirational hit Firework designed by Todd Thomas. The dramatic outfit was the perfect end to an amazing night!

As Katy's outfits changed throughout the night so did her hair. She wore several wigs during the show including a multicoloured pastel wig, but her famous blue wig never made an appearance. In the middle of the concert she took some time to talk and interact with the crowd even handing out a hawaiian style pizza to young fan who turned out to be a vegetarian! Overall the show was a spectacle of lights, glitter, and of course great music! Katy truly puts on a fun and exciting tour and never leaves her fans disappointed. 

Check out some of the photos from the night below!

Christian Louboutin Nails


Glossy black sky high heels with those beautiful red soles. Christian Louboutin shoes are the epitome of sexy and sophisticated, but did you ever wonder how the soles became red? It all started back in 1992 when Louboutin was designing a shoe called the Penées. After an initial sketch and a prototype he realized something was missing. Off to the side his assistant was painting her nails with red polish which inspired Louboutin to paint the soles of the prototype red. Those red soles have since become a fashion icon and Louboutin's signature! Over 20 years later he has expanded his company from shoes to handbags and has now created a line of nail polish and tip toed into the realm of beauty. The first colour Rouge will be available in stores August 8th with the remaining colours in the collection debuting August 30th. Everything from the exquisite packaging to the stunning colour scream couture, which could be why each bottle will put you back $50. Will you be picking up a bottle for your collection?
