Model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley joined presenter Jason Statham on the red carpet, also wearing the soft hue Passion.

“Both Claire and Rosie wore bold dresses – Claire in rich red and Rosie in dramatic black – and the sheer pink, ultra-feminine lacquer shade Passion gave their nails a classic, polished look,” said OPI celebrity manicurist Beth Fricke.





Cattiva: il Primo Bacio Lip Gloss Swatches/Review

Cattiva Cosmetics was nice enough to send me one of their il Primo Bacio Lip Glosses in #2 to review for my readers. It's a nude-y pink and has some shimmer in it. The lip gloss is very easy to apply and lasts for a really long time. It isn't tacky or sticky and I enjoyed it very much. The packaging is lovely and comes with a red ribbon. 





I'm very picky when it comes to lip products because I don't like the way certain ones smell or feel on my lips. I really love this lip gloss though and I'm sure anyone who tries it will.

The SRP is $24 and you can find them here.

Below are photos of my swatches:

Inspired by Italian romance, CATTIVA is a fashion forward, anti-aging line of cosmetics that is mineral based and highly pigmented to meet the needs of both makeup artists and the everyday woman.
