Beauty File: Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Crayon Review

I test drove two shades of the new Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Crayon and wanted to share the results with you.

The lip crayons are the latest in the the Burt's Bees lip color line.  The product is a chubby lip pencil but does not require sharpening. It has a creamy, semi sheer, finish that's in between glossy and matte (the company describes it as "semi-matte").  It goes on smoothly.  For you MAC lovers, you'll find the composition similar to lustre lipsticks, but a little bit less pigmented.  Below are swatches for Carolina Coast and Hawaiian Smolder. 

Carolina Coast // Hawaiian Smolder

 Top swatch is Carolina Coast, bottom swatch is MAC's Lovelorn lustre lipstick - very similar, could possibly be a dupe.

Style File: JCrew Work Wear Pieces

Sometimes, the easiest thing to throw on for the office is a good work-wear dress topped with a blazer or cardigan. It's a basic, feminine outfit for the office that requires minimal thought on those mornings were you're feeling nervous because you've got a big presentation or just, four seconds to get out the door.

I like J.Crew dresses because they're well tailored/ constructed, the length is always appropriate, and they have a little bit of an extra design element that sets them apart from the basic corporate shift dress.

Style File: Amal Alamuddin

We need to discuss the most amazing fashion momenst from this past weekend.
Could Amal Almuddin's style be more perfect? She has the best couture eye, prancing around Venice in the most stunning Giambattista Valli white cutout dress (the flower appliques are to die for), and opting for a white Stella McCartney Bespoke pantsuit for her civil ceremony, instead of a traditional dress.
Oh, yeah, did I mention that she made it official with George Clooney, also?
While we, in the fashion crowd, eagerly await the first leaked photos of her wedding dress, take a tour down couture perfection and browse through her latest looks below.
