Street Style

New York


Expiration dates for YOUR beauty essentials

*Anti-aging and acne treatments: Three months to a year. Antioxidants are easily oxidized, so be on the lookout for any changes in color.
*Body lotion: Two to three years, particularly if it’s in a pump container.
* Shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel: About three years.
* Bath oil: One year.
* Sunscreen: Check the package for an expiration date.
* Mascara and liquid eyeliner: Three to four months. Make sure you’re diligent about replacing these items to prevent contamination and infections.
*Eyeshadow: Up to three years.
*Concealer:Up to 12 months
*Make-up brushes: Wash every 2-3 months in a mild detergent.
* Eye and lip pencils: Three to five years. Sharpen them before each use as a way to preserve them and keep them clean.
* Lipstick and lip gloss: Two to three years.
* Foundation: About two years. Most bottles are designed to last that long. And if you don’t use it, chances are you didn’t love it to begin with.
* Perfume: About two years. To get more mileage out of a perfume, resist the temptation to display a pretty bottle on your vanity. Instead, stash it away in a cool, dark place.
* Nail polish: One year.

Do you want makeup that looks good and is GOOD for your skin too?

Well...DuWop cosmetics was made with you in mind! I know that us gals have our own makeup dilemmas but mine is...RED LIPSTICK. I love red lipstick but I'm absolutely terrified of how it'll look on me. As a woman of color,I'm very concerned about drawing negative attention to my lips. Such effect will be called:CLOWN MOUTH,just tragic.

But DuWop is here to the rescue with their revolutionary lipstick "Private Red"!

Private Red is different from other lipsticks because it has "mood lipstick technology".Which always it to change color and complement YOUR skin tone.Thanks for solving my 3 year dilemma,DuWop:-) Not only that but Private Red contains nourishing ingredients like Vitamin E for conditioning and Henna for a non-fading pigment.It not only protects&conditions,smooth-ens but never fades! This isn't your mother's lipstick!

This is the lipstick of the new generation. It's a great buy that every trendsetter needs in her makeup bag. No more dry lips! No more weird smells! No more fading color! I'm a huge fan! I do not advocate anything I don't believe in so don't waste another dime on products that don't work.



I'm sorry but last night's Grammy awards was really boring. Don't even get me started on the winners...let's jump into the fashion. Shall we?


Kimmy K is really nice to look at. She looked like a bootylicious golden statue last night. Very circa 1997 J.LO

Miss Kidman looked absolutely amazing in Jean-Paul Gaultier. Now I see why she's obsessed with mermaid style dresses-instant curves for her boyish frame.

J...TO THE LO. Hell-lo. That's a throwback to an old J.Lo song for the youngins. I know if it was an inch or two longer-PERFECTION.Those Christian Louboutin shoes...give me life. Divine!

SELENA GOMEZ,you look amazing! She kept it very sophisticated,sweet&sexy.She's wearing a J. Mendel gown.


Yes,Ciara has a sick bod but the top portion of the dress is just wacky. It flattens her boobs it's just not flattering at all.There was too much going on with the cuts on the sides,the front detail,different patterns,the shoes,the train...just NO!

Miley looks so grown up. I wish she'll do something different with her hair.A messy updo would've done this dress so much more justice. The dress is very shiny and heavily detailed so she didn't need the bracelets.Maybe just a nice cocktail ring?!

I love me some Katy Perry!!! Her song are addictive,she's cute& all about girl power. Now,I wish I could have snipped that train off her dress. And pulled the skirt up a little more so we can't see any peek-a-boo skin. Love u Katy :-)


Nicki Minaj wins this. WTF ARE YOU WEARING HB? Anyone that knows me well knows that I LOVE NICKI MINAJ but I can't support this. This...this Givenchy Leopard atrocity.
Waaah :(
