More Celeb Style I Love

While over in Kuwait, Kim Kardashian made an appearance inside Kuwait's Avenues Mall on Tuesday for the opening of Millions of Milkshakes.  The KUWTK star opted for an interesting white body-con cocktail dress with sheer neckline and arm cutouts.  Kim's styled her LWD with a gold waist belt, white and gold toe-capped pumps, her signature smokey eye, and slicked back pony tail.  I am absolutely in love with this dress, if anyone knows the designer please leave it below in the comments.
Olivia Palermo walked to carpet at the VIP viewing of  Valentino: Master of Couture exhibition at Embankment Galleries in London Wednesday evening.  The City starlet wore a Alessandra Rich Spring 2013 lace gown with flame pattern and equally busy Manolo Blahnik pumps.  Palermo completed her H2T look with a collar-less black blazer, a burgundy clutch, and silver statement necklace.  This is ever a love or hate outfit and I LOVE IT!!!

Celeb Style Watch

Alexa Chung looking like her fabulous-self in a Valentino lime-green cocktail dress with white lace bodice overlay at Day 2 of The-MiuMiu-London temporary woman's club at Cafe Royal in London.  Simple black ankle strap pumps and her own designed Anya Hindmarch ‘Bathurst' handbag completed her amazing H2T look.  Kate Mara walked to red carpet in LA wearing a Jason Wu Resort 2013 chartreuse chiffon cocktail dress with black lace inside at the necklace with sequin and beading embellishment throughout.  Black t-strap peep-toe pumps, gold box clutch, side parted pony tail and smokey eye with nude lip completed her look, which I think is perfection!
Taylor Swift once again hit another carpet looking stunning!  Taylor travelled around the pond to Australia to attend the 2012 ARIA Awards complete with Elie Saab on her back.  The cream coloured gown consisted of a corseted bodice, side lace cutouts and full flowing skirt. Simply breathtaking!
Is it just me or is Lea Michele looking more and more gorgeous, walking the black carpet at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle Miss Golden Globe 2013 party at Cecconi's Restaurant in California.  Michele opted for a stunning nude Valentino Spring 2013 gown with 3/4 length sleeve, deep "V" neckline, and high thigh-high slit.  She completed her look with white and silver sandals, gold and silver clutch, drop earrings, and rose gold bracelet.  A-MA-ZING!!

Make-Up Haul Continued

Another coupon and another trip to Shoppers Drug Mart, I swear this place is going to bankrupt me!  I do however pick up some amazing products, some I needed some I wanted, which I can't wait to start using.  As much as I love my fellow bloggers that I follow, but you guys are honestly going to kill me, your recommendations create too much curiosity for me to ignore!! So this Beauty Haul I blame on my fellow bloggers and coupons...
As you know I have been obsessed with SOAP & GLORY's face products and I thought I would give their SUPER-COLOUR SEXY MOTHER PUCKER - Transparent Lip Plumping Gloss a try.  Once I took the gloss out of the box I was pleasantly surprise when the tube was larger than whats showing on the box (about the size of a regular mascara tube).  Not only did this plumper start tingling right after I put it on my lips, it also smells A-MA-ZING; like chocolate hazelnut cake!  This product will be the perfect base for one of my many lipsticks.  I have also been dying for a nude lipstick or gloss and was extremely exciting when I found the last tube of L'OREAL PARIS Colour Riche leGloss - #151 Baby Blossom.  This pigmented gloss is the perfect substitution for clear lip gloss or balm, it has an easy applicator and is smooth, not stick when on your lips, which I find had to find with drugstore makeup.  This gloss isn't a true nude, it does have a peach undertone to it which is perfect for fair skinned people like myself.  I will definitely be picking up more colours in the leGloss collection.
Ingrid from MissGlamorazzi has been raving about Maybelline New York Color Tattoo 24hr by EYESTUDIO during her recent YouTube Videos and I had to see what all the fuss was about.  I picked up colour #35 Tough as Taupe and am in love with this colour.  It is the perfect sultry colour without being too dark, which is perfect for me!  Also, I tend to not like cream eye shadows however once this shadow is applied the creaminess turns almost powdery, which will help with the longevity.  With Fall in full swing and Winter literally knocking on the door, it is time to bring out the deeper and darker lip colours.  I found this berry red colour AKA Crave/Envie from the REVLON Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm Collection and I wont lie I was worried when purchasing that the colour was going to be too dark, as there was not sample to swatch, however I am extremely happy with the colour because it isn't too dark and will be my go to berry shade this season.  Since being a stain it is ideal for long lasting colour, which is perfect for nights on the town or long days at the office.
I couldn't resist picking up these mini Eye Make-Up Remover Pads from QUO.  Perfect for travel or to keep in your handbag while on-the-go.  And for only $5, I will for sure get good use out of these.  I have started to wear more and more eyeliner and experiment with different styles and colours.  A nice change from black I decided to give Maybelline New York Lasting Drama by EYESTUDIO in Eggplant a try.  This liquid liner pot comes with its own applicator, which will make the application process that much easier, also it saves me from purchasing a second eyeliner brush.  I am in love with this colour and this specific liner because it allows you to decide how dark or light you want your liner, simply by repeating the line until the desired darkness is achieved.
The only thing I actually needed was a new Blush Brush and I am in love with QUO brushes.  The quality of the bristles is evident by how long they last.  I was looking for a brush with longer bristles to create a less harsh look when applying my blush, and I cannot wait to start using it tomorrow.  My only non-Shoppers purchase on this haul is from Jouer, which was also introduced to me by Ingrid from MissGlamorazzi.  The Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint in Golden is the perfect mix of medium-full coverage and moisturising BB cream.  This SPF 20 and Oil Free formula is light to the touch and does not look cakey on the face.  An even, matte, moisturized pallet is created, which is the perfect base for whatever other makeup you wear day to day.
Last and hopefully least, for now at least, is one of my FAVOURITE perfumes of all time; Britney Spears Curious.  I can't remember the last time I purchased or wore this fragrance but when I walked by it in the drug store I could not refuse the $19.99, yes $19.99, price point!  A girl can never have too many fragrances to choose from in the morning!
