Winky Lux Comes to Lower East Side in NYC

By Akela Moore

Color cosmetics brand Winky Lux opened their first store at the beginning of the month and now they can call the lower east side of New York City their home. Launched two years ago,the high pigmented color cosmetics is super affordable which outside of the colors is the amazing part. The NYC store opening was bright and packed with beauty lovers trying out products and sipping cocktails.

The products are cruelty-free, paraben free, phtalate free and non-toxic which is why it’s my new Spotlight makeup brand for November. I was super excited to find a Matte Lip Velour in the gift bag when I got home in Smitten color which is such a great daytime Nude for an effortless look. You can get yours at 69 Ludlow Street.  (more…)

Polish Fashion Week NYC


Polish Fashion Week Pop Up was held in Chelsea Market last month. The pop up showcased 9 different designers from Poland with a full range apparel and accessories.

At the Garden State Plaze in Paramus, NJ whenever the Mac counters are full, I’d run over to Inglot.
