Don't be Tardy for this Party- Lippmann Happy Birthday

This polish will make you party like it's your birthday

In case you were wondering, this does seem to be a week of nail polish here on Krasey Beauty. I have really found myself experimenting recently with both texture and color, resulting in a myriad of new options for my digits. Fac: one of my latest lacquer loves happens to be textured polish. Specifically, I am adoring texture in the form of the sequins and glitter present in select colors from Deborah Lippmann's Lippmann Collection. My newest discovery is the blingtastic Happy Birthday.

Skincare 201 with Dr Tina Alster

Welcome to round 2 of my skincare enlightenment series. This time, I bring to you various words of wisdom and skincare gems from none other than dermatologist extraordinaire, Dr Tina S. Alster.

I recently had the pleasure of attending a press event held in the fabulous Peninsula Spa, where attendees gathered to get the 411 on skincare from an industry leader. With a resume that reads like an honor student's report card, it becomes clear that Dr Alster is an expert in her field, a wealth of skincare knowledge, and one of the best and brightest in the business. I can also attest to the fact that she also has a fabulous personality, and a killer fashion sense (she is a fan of Jason Wu). Pluses in my book, though completely optional in a good dermatologist.

Daily Dose of Yum- Gourmet Flavored Popcorn from Popcornopolis

Nom Nom Nom

I know what you are thinking, and yes, that is me eating pasta. Anywho, welcome to my first food post!

Now I am by no means gourmet certified, but I do consider myself to be a big time foodie. I love to cook, I love to watch the Food Network (yay, it's back!), but most of all, I love to snack. I will almost always eat small portions at dinner in order to save room to snack later.

Now I go through phases where I fixate on one particular snackfood in particular. Allow me to introduce my newest obsession, gourmet flavored popcorn from Popcornopolis.

Born in California, this popcorn company has been popping up (hehe) lately at my local Costco. Packaged in adorable little cones, these treats are delicious whether you go with the sweet or the savory options. With more flavors than dollars in my wallet, Popcornopolis definitely brings the yum.

I have stocked up on nearly 20 bags of this yummy goodness, in 9 of the flavors offered. My favorites thus far have been Cheddar and Cinnamon Bun, though I can honestly say that there is no bad flavor. If you don't see me for a couple of days, it's probably because I am in a popcorn induced coma.

What's your favorite snack?

Fashion Inspiration: Pierre Cardin- 60 Years of Innovation

In commemoration of the sixtieth anniversary of the Maison Cardin, Pierre Cardin- 60 Years of Innovation is a commemorative retrospective of the work of its founder, fashion designer Pierre Cardin.

Thierry Mugler Beauty Wants You to Gloss Your Lashes with Cils Vinyle

The last item in my Thierry Mugler mini-series was also the last item I finally decided on during that fateful day of beauty shopping at The Bay. I was obviously on the search for all things new and unusual, and since I had room for one more I wanted to go with at least one eye product. In the end, Cils Vinyle it was. I think it was the gloss for my lashes part that drew me in.

Thierry Mugler Beauty- The Plexi Gloss

On my many adventures both around North America and through the world of beauty blogging, there comes a time when I stumble across things that are so beautiful that they transcend Earth. So splendiferous, that they must have come from a different planet altogether.

A Very GaGa FOTD

Feeling the need to live up to the impeccable beauty reputation of one of my style icons, I tried to step it up artistically when I did my look for the concert. I apologize in advance since I do look a little haggard. I am not wearing foundation or tinted moisturizer, so you get to see my skin in its natural state. This was done in ten minutes in the office bathroom. Anywho, on with the show.

To read what I used, jump it!

Lady Gaga Takes on NYC- The Monster Ball Concert at Radio City

In other words, your krasey beauty's brain became a krasey pile of ooey gooey goodness.

Make Up Designory Lip Glaze

The time has come for me to once again dive headfirst into the amazing world of Make-Up Designory Cosmetics. This time, I want to introduce you all to the newest lip products, Lip Glazes in Bare and Java.

Smashbox Halo Hydrating Shadows

Hypothesis: If I love eyeshadow
Hypothesis: If I love anything Smashbox does, especially the Halo Powders
Conclusion: It is inevitable that I too will love the new Smashbox Halo Eyeshadows.

And oh yes, I do love them. The newest product to come out of the Halo family (Halo Face Powder and Halo Glow are the first two), Smashbox Halo Hydrating Shadows are like nothing I have ever seen before in an eye product. A dual chambered powder eyeshadow that enables you to "shave" off some of the product before you apply, these high-tech wonders have quickly become my morning go-to for quick, easy, flawless eye looks.

For swatches of all of them, and an in-depth review, take the jump!

Golden Globes Beauty- Toni Collette by La Mer, DEX New York, and Sensai

For the Golden Globes, actress Toni Collette was done up oh so right by Makeup Artist Gita Bass. Here is how she got the look:

Gita added a layer of La Mer’s The Body Crème to keep Toni's skin looking glowing and radiant. To keep her face looking flawless she used The Radiant Concealer SPF 25 under her eyes and on any redness. She also prepped the lips with the amazing La Mer Lip Balm to keep them full and hydrated all night long.

For the makeup, Gita created a smoky bronze eye for Toni by using DEX New York Rockefeller Gold as the base. She applied the newest version of cult favorite SENSAI 38 Degrees Mascara - Volumizing to her lashes for long lasting full coverage for the entire night that even the rain couldn’t wash off. Toni’s skin was veiled in SENSAI’s New Bronzing Gel – Bass received special access to this line coming out for Spring 2010 in March (3 shades) to give her a sun kissed golden -glow while leaving her skin moist and refreshed.

Gita Bass suggests “To intensify the bronze smoky eye I used the SENSAI Eyeliner pencil in brown inside the eye, it has amazing pigment and stays put.”
All that info aside, did you like Miss Collette's look of the evening?

Winter Skin Woes and the Miracles of Dermalogica and La Prairie

Winter has kicked in full-scale here in NYC, as temperatures in the 20's and teens are unfortunately becoming commonplace. You know you are in a bad way when 40 degree temps sound like a heatwave. Anywho, try as I might to counteract polar bear weather conditions, my skin is still unfortunately starting to act up on me. One week of falling off the bandwagon, and this is what I get...

Shame on me, but I slacked off on my routine for all of a week. What months of diligent skincare wrought was undone, as I found myself with a dry and bumpy situation on my forehead that needed timely intervention. In desperate need of some relief, I turned to what is sure to become a new staple, along with a tried-and-true favorite.

To find out what got me back on track, take the jump!

MUD is Beautiful- More Make-up Designory Eyeshadows

*We aren't talking about that kind of mud, though he does look like he is having fun.
This is more like it:

*Yep, I went there... again.

OK, so I say this a lot but... I really do love colorful eyeshadow. Having a collection of over 150 different shades, textures, and finishes, it is no small thing for me to say that a new brand (to me) has caught my eye and then captured my makeup-loving heart. Those who are longtime readers know that Make Up For Ever, Illamasqua, Smashbox, and NARS top my list, but the newest contender that has vied its way for supremacy and has come out in the top three is the Make-up Designory (MUD) cosmetics line. For a brand to stand out for this cosmetic junkie, you know it has to be something special.

Lady Gaga Heartbeats

It has been some time since I have touched fashion on Krasey Beauty, but rest assured that I have not turned a blind eye to something that is very near and dear to my heart. In fact, I am considering myself inspired as I want to spotlight the hottest new accessory in my ownership. Say hello to a gift from Mama Krasey, Heartbeats by Lady Gaga, as brought to the adoring masses from Beats by Dr Dre.

Please Help Haiti

I know that most of the time it is light-hearted banter and fun here on Krasey Beauty, but I want to take the time to call to everyone's attention a very devastating tragedy that has caused a nation's walls to come tumbling down. On January 12th, a series of severe earthquakes rocked Haiti, bringing with it death, destruction, and utter devastation. The stone weight of grief reverberates through us all as images of destruction are everywhere, and many are left to worry about their family and loved ones overseas. I personally have friends who don't know if their families in Haiti are okay, and that brings tears to my eyes.

I am writing this in the hopes that all of you will do what you can to help the relief efforts. There are many rumors and hoaxes swirling around the internet, so I wanted to present a list of legitimate charitable organizations that you can donate to and support. Information and image is taken from the Huffington Post.

The American Red Cross is pledging an initial $200,000 to assist communities impacted by this earthquake. They expect to provide immediate needs for food, water, temporary shelter, medical services and emotional support. They are accepting donations through their International Response Fund.
UNICEF has issued a statement that "Children are always the most vulnerable population in any natural disaster, and UNICEF is there for them." UNICEF requests donations for relief for children in Haiti via their Haiti Earthquake Fund. You can also call 1-800-4UNICEF.
•Donate through Wyclef Jean's foundation, Yele Haiti. Text "Yele" to 501501 and $5 will be charged to your phone bill and given to relief projects through the organization.
Operation USA is appealing for donations of funds from the public and corporate donations in bulk of health care materials, water purification supplies and food supplements which it will ship to the region from its base in the Port of Los Angeles. Donate online at, by phone at 1-800-678-7255 or, by check made out to Operation USA, 3617 Hayden Ave, Suite A, Culver City, CA 90232.
Save The Children has launched an emergency relief effort for Haiti. Donate to their fund to provide medical attention and clean water to children and families.

Mercy Corps is sending a team of emergency responders to assess damage, and seek to fulfill immediate needs of quake survivors. The agency aided families after earthquakes in Peru in 2007, China and Pakistan in 2008, and Indonesia last year. Donate online, call 1-888-256-1900 or send checks to Mercy Corps Haiti Earthquake Fund; Dept NR; PO Box 2669; Portland, OR 97208.
