Gwen Stefani Launches Makeup Collection With Urban Decay

Gwen Stefani x Urban Decay_LifeIsTremendez

On Thursday night, I had the pleasure of attending the exclusive launch party for Urban Decay‘s makeup collection with Gwen Stefani. The collection includes an eyebrow palette, a blush palette, an eyebrow kit, lip liners and a selection of lipsticks – which features a wide range of vibrant reds (very Gwen-like) with equally Gwen-like names such as “Spiderweb,” “Phone Call” and “Ex-Girlfriend.”

The event was everything you’d expect from something with the former No Doubt frontwoman’s name on it, with Vashtie providing music as the cocktails flowed, and even a live band coming in later on in the evening. I was BEYOND excited that we were treated to the entire collection, and I have been switching up my lip color ever since! Stay tuned to my Instagram for previews of each shade.

In the meantime, hit the jump for a few pics of the collection and our night. The collection will be available soon here. Thank you to Urban Decay and Laura Stylez for the invite!

(Photos) Kinship Pays Tribute To Bad Boy, Dip Set With Bomber Jackets

Streetwear brand Kinship is celebrating Bad Boy‘s 20th anniversary with their latest bomber jacket, following their previously-released Golden Era and Dip Set versions. (The latter of which you KNOW I’m dying to get my hands on, and have every plan to!)

The Bad Boy Bomber features an all-over print of all of the label’s greatest albums, from the Biggie and Ma$e golden days, to modern day with the likes of French Montana and Janelle Monae. They even have the short-lived supergroup Boyz N Da Hood on there!

“I wanted to create pieces that pays homage to the music I was raised on,” said Kinship founder Reggie Thomas. “Bad Boy definitely deserves major recognition. Hopefully people will appreciate it just as much as I did.”

The Diplomats “Dipped” bomber features classic Dip Set covers from the mixtapes to official albums, like Diplomats Vol. 2, Purple Haze, Hustlers P.O.M.E., Diplomatic Immunity, From Me To You and more. The third in the line of jackets, “The Bomb,” features 50 of your favorite albums of the 90s, including NasIllmatic, Snoop‘s Doggy Style and Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic.

The jackets are all 100% satin with a satin lining (purple for Bad Boy, red for Dip Set, black for the Golden Era) and a full zipper front. Take a closer look at them below!

Summer Jam 2011 was so fun! I got to see so many of my faves, and I chopped it up with Lil Wayne, Drake and Mack Maine about what they’re wearing.

Tunechi is rocking a Fame hoodie (“Shout to Breezy,” he said), shorts by All-Son (he had to double check that one, LOL) Gucci belt (“You know that’s Gucci baby!”) Famous Stars & Stripes hat and Vans kicks. Shout out to his stylist Marisa (not me, LOL.) “Marisa said I can wear different things and they don’t have to match! It still look good!” So true!

Mack Maine is rocking True Blue Jordan 3’s, Polo socks (he wanted to make sure I mentioned that, LOL), an NY Giants snapback and a “Bury Me In My J’s” shirt by 8 & 9 Clothing.

As for Drizzy, it’s all Versace velour (he was appalled that I didn’t know that by looking at it, LOL!) and some black Timbs!
