DISCOTHEQUE… Juliana Herz
Spring's near epidemic of dry flaky skin (thanks to prolonged cold weather and heating systems) has me yearning for glossy cheekbones and lush nude lips. Pair with an unapologetically glamorous eye for a late night dance party or for a dramatic trip to the grocery store.
This was the first time I've used two of the product listed below - Chanel Illusion D'Ombre and Edward Bess Ultra Slick Lipstick. While I don't usually go in for reviews, I thought I'd share a bit since these products get a lot of buzz. I tend to like moist eyeshadows (Armani's Eyes to Kill is a favorite) and the Chanel was right on point. True to the nature of these kind of products, Illusion D'Ombre can be a bit challenging to apply. I like this shadow best when swept all the way around the eye in a wash of color but you need to blend quickly before it sets. A dense brush does the job best. Once applied, the color is multidimensional and has serious staying power. As for the Edward Bess lipstick, it's a chic alternative to lip gloss. The lipstick has a satin finish with ample sheen and a luxurious texture. This particular shade of nude is ideal for a wide variety of skin tones because it is opaque enough to cover a more pigmented lip.
