Confessions of a Makeup Shopaholic

In the soon-to-be-released motion picture, “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” Isla Fisher depicts the fashionable, yet fiscally irresponsible, editor, Rebecca Bloomwood. And what makes Ms. Bloomwood tick (or palpitate might be more like it)? Two things: the heavy hitters in fashion including Chanel, YSL, Dior, Stella McCartney and Betsey Johnson; and the ever-elusive Sample Sale.

Basically, Rebecca Bloomwood is the fictional sister we never had. To her couture-chasing, trend-owning antics we can relate…

With a simple spritz of Stella McCartney’s Stella perfume and it’s gentle rose and amber scent, we can move confidently from workday to first date without skipping a beat ($110 at   And, we carry it all with pride in the Femme Fatale cosmetic bag from Betsey Johnson ($44 for three-piece set on





But when it comes right down to it, heavy hitters aren’t the only lines that keep us waiting in line. We wanna know, wanna have and wanna love it all. We’re crazy about nail polish from Carolyn NYC. We flaunt our perfect glow from Jane Iredale, the skin care makeup’s Brush-Me-Bronze bronzer (find locations at
