The Sweet Treat of the day are these to- die-for Zigi NY Nevada red suede stud  and  jeweled wedges. I spotted the shoes over at Intheircloset.com and had to share it with my readers. These shoes are abosultely amazing. It’s  a spin off  of the Giuseppe Zanotti wedges that were a hit this summer. Everyone from Naya Rivera to Keri Hilson rocked a pair.

These wedges feature a red suede body with studs and jewels on the heel of the shoe. The shpes kind of remind me of those Sam Edleman shoes worn by Garcelle Beauvais.

The wedges retail for $219.00. The shoes are available for pre-order at  Msheel.com.  After October 10th the shoes will cost you $229 dollars. So if you want them I suggest you act fast. Nothing this hot will stick around too long.

MAKEUP BAG: M.A.C. LIPSTICK REVIEW (VIDEO INCLUDED)

Over the weekend I purchased three new shades of lipstick. Two were from M.A.C’s “Posh Paradise” collection and the other lipstick was from M.A.c.’s “Make Me Over” collection. The lipsticks from the ” Posh Paradise ” collection were mattene finishes and this was my first time using a mattene finish. Mattene lipsticks have all the properties of a matte finish but it’s creamier, softer, and a lot easier to apply.  It really just glides on.

I bought  “Rare Exotic” and that’s an intense pink. I was looking for something close to  “Candy  Yum-Yum” since it was sold out when I tried to purchase it.

I bought this intense purple shade, called ” Potent Fig”.

I also bought another shade of red lipstick. Once I discovered  ” Russian Red” a few years ago I didn’t think anything could top it , then I met “Ruby Woo”. Now I’ve added ” Runway Red” to my makeup bag. ” Runway Red ” is a deeper darker red with a satin finish.

Check out all the swatches and check out my video that shows you what each shade of lipstick looks like on. As a bonus I compared “Ruby Woo”  and  “Runway Red”. Continue Reading »
