File This and Polish That!

Nothing gives you more of an "Ahhh" factor than the beauty and fashion statements made by Lady Gaga!  She recently performed at the 2011 Grammy's in a bright yellow ensemble and matching nail polish.  Deborah Lippmann a well known celebrity manicurist created the shade called "Yellow Brick Road" specifically for Gaga's performance.  The polish that resembles the color of a sunflower is a gel finish.  I've been reading a lot about the gel nail polish trend.  It's supposed to last longer and dry quicker.  I'm already in love with the finish and color.

For $16 you can get it too, available April 15th online at Lippmann Collection.  I'm already imagining the fun designs I can do with the color.  Just look at the smiley faces RiRi is rocking in the pic. 






What are your thoughts?  YAY or NAY?  Personally I'm sold!

Beauty Using Rock Stars

Why am I totally obsessed with the ad campaign for the new Viva Glam Lipstick and lipglass!?!?!  Not only does Lady Gaga look beautiful and flawless but that lip color shade is TO DIE FOR!!   MAC and Lady Gaga have teamed up again to launch VIVA GLAM GAGA 2!  The lipstick and lipglass collection will benefit AIDS fundraising.  100% of the sales goes toward the MAC AIDS Fund.  In 2010 the MAC VIVA GLAM shade made over $32 million dollars.  This year Lady Gaga wants to do $50 million! VIVA GLAM GAGA 2 is available right now at MAC through the end of the month, or until it sells out!

VIVA GLAM GAGA 2 comes in both a Lipstick and Lipglass. The Lipstick is a light warm beige shade suitable for all skin tones.  The Lipglass is just as pretty, and more of a pinky beige shade. They each sell for $14.50.

MND tip: The lipstick looks good with Boy Bait Cremesheen gloss over top as well

What are your thoughts?  I love how Gaga has the perfect smokey eye, dripping in diamonds and pearls.
