Holiday Beauty- Rock and Republic Color Collection

Just in time for the holidays, Rock and Republic Cosmetics is a new blip on my cosmetics radar that I have immersed myself in, and have fallen madly in love with.

Rock and Republic is the perfect fusion of luxe packaging, fashion forward makeup trends, and exceptional quality. From the same house that brings you delicious designer denim, each piece from this collection is equally covetable. The packaging is just plain sexy, with each compact having a good deal of weight to it, finished in reflective silver with real patent leather in the lid. The lipglosses are also beautiful to look at, and come in a patent capped test tube.




These are my picks for a perfect smoky eyed party look:

Nailed eyeshadow- Smooth, gunmetal gray with hints of blue and green.
Fiend Eyeshadow- Deep navy, and the perfect compliment to nailed. Together, you get a smoky look worthy of any rock star.
Tyrant Lipgloss- Bruised berry, and an unexpected shade to pair with a strong eye. The somewhat sheer glossiness ensures that the  look isn't too over the top, though it can be paired with a soft eye look for daytime.
Mental Gel Eyeliner- A deviation from traditional black liner, this ultra-smooth gel in navy blue brightens the whites of your eyes, even as it rims your peepers in gorgeous color. I found the formula of these to be nearly identical to my beloved Make Up For Ever Aqua cream liner, which is slightly dryer than a typical gel liner.
Call Me Powder Blush- The perfect contrast to dramatic eyes, Call Me is a silky soft, matte peach that is absolutely divine. I just love peach blushes, to warm up my complexion in colder months.

Swatches: L-R Mental, Nailed, Fiend, Call Me



Bringing it all together, a finished eye look:


Lip Swatch: Tyrant Lipgloss

The half face shot. Because sometimes, dramatic can be so much fun.


Also available for the holidays, Rock & Republic is launching limited edition Rock the Cure Red lipgloss. Benefiting City of Hope, this is beauty for a cause at its finest.

Rock and Republic Cosmetics can be found online, at Bloomingdales, and other high-end department stores. I have fallen in love with the line, and I think you will too.

The line is going out of business. They still have some of their products on their website but the department stores are mostly discounting it. It's a shame since it's an excellent line. I'm surprised to see a new product so maybe there's hope for it though.

Marcia, I haven't heard that, but it would be a shame if that is true. Its a gorgeous line for sure
