On March 5, 2013 Glam Belleza Latina hit select newsstands. Glam Belleza Latina, is Glamour's new beauty magazine that is dedicated to celebrating the beauty and style of us Latinas. I love the fact that this magazine is geared towards the array of cultures that make up the Latin community. We all don't look the same or even speak the same but us Latinas do put a big emphasis on our looks. This is where Glam Belleza Latina comes in bringing readers the latest in beauty, hair, makeup, skin, nails and fashion as it relates to las mujeres Latinas (Latin women). Be sure to check out Glam Belleza Latina's website to stay in the know on nuestra belleza (our beauty).
UPCOMING COLLECTION LAUNCHES
Every now and then I like to splurge on cosmetics and when I do, I turn to MAC. I've been a huge fan of their lipsticks and eyeshadows for years! I'm super excited that they will now have a MAC store inside of the Century 21 at 22 Cortlandt Street. Only a few blocks away from where I work! This increases my chances of getting by chubby fingers on RiRi ♥ MAC which is set to hit stores soon!!!
I'm guilty of being a huge fan of the Kardashian family (don't judge me). They have managed to build an empire on being fashionable, family-oriented and business savvy. This time around they are tapping into the skin care industry with a new sunless tanning system. "Kardashian Sun Kissed" is comprised of five sunless tanning products that are to be used in a 3-step process to get sun kissed skin without having to bake under the sun. The sisters were very adamant that the product be good for the skin; everything is paraben- and sulfate-free. Just like Kim, I too feel that with a tan I can skip the whole makeup process, especially in the summer. The Kardashian Sun Kissed products are priced between $12.99 and $19.99, available exclusively at Ulta this month.
I'm all for designer fashion, I mean who wouldn't want to wear a dress by a famous fashion designer? Kohl's is another one of my faves because just like JCPenney they are making it possible for us to get a runway look for less. What I like most about Derek Lam's clothing is that they are very much what I would wear on a day-to-day basis, especially for work. Derek Lam's genius lies in his ability to cut sophisticated tailoring with effortless appeal. His designs are all about "luxury without formality." On April 5th, the collection will be available in stores and on online. The retail prices for the line range from $36 to $88. You can check out Derek Lam's collection for Kohl's DesigNation here.
As a fashionista on a budget I'm always looking for department stores that are not only affordable but that also sell items that are up-to-date with the latest trends. H&M is one of the top 5 stores I love to shop at because I always find what I'm looking for and never have that guilty feeling of over paying for what I want. For years H&M has been collaborating with designers and celebs to launch exclusive collections. This May, the one and only Beyonce will be joining that list! Women's Wear Daily announced that Beyonce will be the new face of H&M and will be designing looks in the collection. What to expect? Since Beyonce helped create the clothes they reflect her own personality. The collection will include a fringed bikini, "the perfect" body-con dress, a beach gown slashed to the thigh, high-waist shorts and a sleeveless shirt. The ads for "Beyonce as Mrs. Carter in H&M" will appear in television commercials, print ads and billboards. The television commercial is creating a lot of buzz because it will include an exclusive new song called, "Standing on the Sun."
