Afternoon Delight: Give your nails the ultimate iridescent update with M.A.C’s Pink Pearl topcoat



I am not someone who’s ever been drawn to the terms ‘pink’ or ‘pearl.’ I’m pretty sure I just rolled my eyes while typing those words out of sheer habit. However, M.A.C Nail Transformations in Pink Pearl will make even the most infuriating angst-ridden youths (me) consider switching over to the light side. The topcoat can be applied over any dry shade for a soft finish that’s pearly, iridescent and just plain lovely. The Nail Transformations collection also comes in topcoats like Texturize (for a leather-like effect), Shadow (a sheer blackening topcoat), and other pearl shades (green, gold and blue).

As if M.A.C’s upcoming collabos with Lorde and Marge Simpson weren’t exciting enough, the cosmetics powerhouse has now paired up with the English mother-daughter duo, Kelly and Sharon Osbourne.

Famous for the dysfunctional, but close-knit vibes they portrayed on their Emmy-winning family reality show The Osbournes, these two hit international success alongside the heavy metal, profanity-shouting Ozzy and Kelly’s brother Jack. Not to mention Kelly’s more recent success as a panelist and presenter on E!’s Fashion Police. With Kelly’s Lavender hair and Sharon’s fire-red shortcut being the shining-stars of inspiration, this collabo has resulted in one rad makeup line.

The details surrounding Lorde’s much-anticipated collection for M.A.C. have been revealed and as we expected, it’s all about recreating our cover girl’s signature goth glam look.

The 2-piece collection features the aptly-named “Pure Heroine” deep plum lipstick, a shade synonymous with the singer, and a Rapidblack liquid eyeliner called “Penultimate,” which is the deepest, darkest M.A.C. shade available. Going for $16 and $20 respectively, the shades are a one-two punch for recreating the singer’s look at home when they hit select stores and online on June 5. (A widespread release will go international in early July.)

Designer of darling shoes and handbags—Kitty flats, Lobster t-straps and Gummi Bear clutches among them—that bear the moniker Charlotte Olympia and a spider’s web emblem, Charlotte Dellal made the transatlantic flight from London last week for a trunk show at The Room at Hudson’s Bay Vancouver. Before greeting fans and introducing them to her latest sea-themed spring collection “Overboard,” she clicked open her Brigitte Bardot-clad clutch for us to snoop through. In addition to a well documented heel fetish, the lady is mad about miniature things, and that includes nail polish, hairbrushes and her three adorable sons.

What’s in your bag, Harley Viera-Newton? »

Last week, one of fashion’s coolest It girls took time out from spinning at Chanel, fronting a Gucci lookbook and collaborating with Dior Beauty to close Rudsak‘s 20th anniversary show during Toronto Fashion Week. A few hours before the show, we got to be ultimate creeps, rummaging inside her bag for daily go-tos. Amongst the items, we found the key to Viera-Newton’s signature look: long lasting beauty products. “Once I start DJing, I don’t really have time to touch up so whatever is on at the start has to stay on,” she said. Take note, working girls!

Rihanna’s new look: Is the patron saint of badassery going soft on us?

Rihanna, otherwise known as the baddest b*tch on Instagram, is embracing a softer side for 2014. She’s been stepping out in more than a few mega classy spring looks as of late and while we’ll never not crave a little stripper steez, her softer side equally intrigues us. After all, any good fashion plate must shed her layers once in a while.

This weekend, Rihanna attended Roc Nation’s pre-Grammy party in the opening look from Altuzarra’s latest lady-for-everyday collection. The Spring 2014 outfit featured a silk striped button down blouse that was worn tucked into a three-quarter-length fold-over stripe skirt and paired with white Manolo Blahnik heels as well as an assortment of bling by Neil Lane, Roseark and Jennifer Meyer. Okay, so the top was unbuttoned down to her naval and the skirt was slit to her lady bits. It’s still quite a departure from this this and this (and this).
