I decided to expand on the Joan video and make a little Ladies on Mad Men Series! I already have a long-term series (Disney Princess ) so I’m going to keep this one short and sweet, just Joan, Peggy, Betty and Megan.
Peggy Olson is a copywriter for SCDP. If you ask me, she’s the the character who’s changed the most throughout the series- she started out a mousy and unsure secretary, dressing like a school marm and she just seemed utterly lost. Over the years she has come out of her shell, been promoted to copywriter, and said things like this:
Rebel in New York, Saint Germain in Seoul, Morange in Paris, Russian Red in Dubai – the must–have lip shades that M·A·C fans around the world reach for, and fall in love with, over and over again. Colours so globally gorgeous we worked them into 3-piece collections of go- everywhere lipstick, lipglass and nail lacquer trios in 7 classic palettes that are perfectly coordinated and regionally inspired. Wherever you are, tip and lip the scale in your fashion favour. Continue reading →
Milani recently launched several new products for spring and they are so fantastic that I was inspired to do an all-drugstore tutorial for you! I already reviewed the Shadow Eyez pencils, and I’ll do a review for the new powder shadows soon. This look is bright & fun and may look intimidating to beginners, but I assure you I break it down step by step in the video, so I think that with a little practice, anyone could recreate it!
Milani just launched a new product that I am completely excited by: Shadow Eyez. These are chubby pencils that can be used alone as eyeliner or shadow (though I prefer to use them as a base for powder eyeshadows). They are intended to last for 12 waterproof hours without creasing. I tested the green & the purple for 2 days and they held up, no creasing or smearing etc… though it’s worth noting that I also used primer. I also left the swatches on my hand for a number of hours, and there was only minor fading after being rinsed & rubbed with water.
Pardon my product-fangirl gushing:
The colors are bright, the hues themselves appeal to me, they glide on the skin like butter with high color payoff, wear like iron, bendable at first application but once it sets there is no smudging or creasing. These dupe several similar high-end long-lasting shadow pencils, but come out ahead because they are inexpensive and available at drugstores/mass retailers.
