Beauty News // MAC x Dita Von Teese Collaboration

Say "red lipstick" and you have my attention. Say "matte red lipstick" and you have my heart. MAC has announced another collaboration and this time, it's with none other than my longtime woman crush Dita Von Teese. I've loved Dita for her raven black hair, pale skin, red lips, perfect eyeliner and pin up lifestyle for as long as I can remember and loved her even more when she married (and sadly, later divorced) my teenage idol Marilyn Manson. 

After being the MAC Viva Glam spokesperson in 2006 and 2007, MAC and Dita are collaborating once again and this time, they're launching her signature red lipstick. Can you hear the angels sing? I sure can! Both parties have already released their statements about the collab:

"I've always loved MAC and we've remained close after working together almost 10 years ago for the MAC Viva Glam campaign. MAC Cosmetics celebrates individuality and supports people who dare to be different. I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to create my signature red lipstick. My MAC Von Teese shade evokes glamour and confidence."
- Dita Von Teese

"Dita epitomizes femininity, beauty and sexuality. She has been a friend of our brand for many years, being one of the faces of our Viva Glam VI campaign. She is the perfect combination of glamour and femme fatale. Her lipstick in Von Teese is the perfect shade of red for your more seductive side."
- James Gager (MAC Senior Vice President / Group Creative Director)

New // Chanel Ankle Boots

A gift from to me for my 26th birthday. I fell in love with these Chanel boots ever since I saw them in the Chanel M├ętiers d'Art fashion show in Salzburg and posted the pink version on my Instagram account. After visiting every Chanel store possible without any luck, I kinda had given up on them; and then I visited the Chanel store in Brussels. 

I asked about the boots and it turns out that they had one pair left, in my size. Coincidence? I think not! They might not be the pink ones that I initially wanted, but I think that these grey ones will give me the opportunity to wear them way more often. Even though I realize that the shoes might not be everyone's cup of tea, I love that they are classic and bold at the same time -- the golden, quilted heels are everything! I think that the model and color are timeless, something I always think about whenever I'm about to do a big purchase.

Plus, I'd like to thank Chanel Brussels for the excellent service. 



New // Balmain x H&M Emerald Green Dress

If you follow me on Snapchat (username: Krizia_S), you know that I was invited to the presale of the Balmain x H&M collection. Ever since the collection hit the Internet, I knew that the emerald green dress would have the top spot on my wish list and I luckily managed to get my hands on it. The cleavage might be too much for others, but I absolutely love it!

These pictures were taken during a quick morning photo shoot, after showing my haul to my mom and sister. After receiving nothing but positive comments, I couldn't wait to share them with you either. Other, better outfit pictures will be online ASAP! I also got some other goodies from the collection, which you can see on my Instagram (username: @Krizia_S).

So, are your ready to join the #Balmaination tomorrow?

Beauty News // Ariana Grande For MAC Viva Glam

Say 'bye bye' now, Miley! Another teen idol has been selected as the ambassador of the MAC Viva Glam campaign and it is none other than Ariana Grande. After launching her own perfume not too long ago, this is her next step in (beauty) world domination. I have to admit that I'm not much of an Arianator; I'm not a big fan of her music or her shoes, but I must admit that she has one hell of a voice. Just take a look at her performance during the American Music Awards 2013. I am, however, a big fan of this MAC collaboration.
