Red, White & You

July 4, 2013 by

Celebrate this Fourth of July with a few festive products:

1. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pure Cosmetic Pigment in Rust, White, and Royal Blue, $14 each

OCC’s products are formulated to be blended and built upon one another, so you can create a cool triple-colored eye with these three loose pigments. (Make sure to go easy and start out sparingly, though—each uncut color goes a long way when used alone). You can also mix into your favorite body lotion for an all-over independence day shimmer.

2. Kat Von D Waterproof Autograph Pencil in Dark Blue and Black Metal Love, $10 each

These two inky, smudgy liners are great for adding definition to your American-Flag colored eye lid. They work well together, and you can use the pencils’ smudge tips to create a sexy and smoky July Fourth stare.

3. Violent Lips American Flag Lip Print, $10

It’s amazing but true—you really can make these crazy lips happen with ease. They’re applied in much the same way that nail decals are, and can be easily removed with baby oil and a cotton ball. So if you want to make a serious July Fourth statement, we say pucker up and put on this American Flag lip appliqué.

4. Bond No. 9 “Nuits de NoHo” Fragrance, $170

With notes of jasmine, creamy vanilla, and sheer patchouli, this fruity-floral scent is perfect for summer nights. Plus, the bottle is so pretty, adorned with festive stars, it seemed like a nice, low-key alternative for this round up.

5. Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara in Dark Blue, $23

This mascara is highly pigmented, which give your lashes a truly deep blue hue.  It also lengthens, curls, and adds lots of volume, so you’ll be able to truly bat some va-va-voom blue eyes.
