Gaudy in Pink

You may know Tarina Tarantino as the pink-haired L.A. accessories designer who bedazzles the living hell out of hunks of plastic and makes something enormous and gaudy-slash-girly out of it. Her new cosmetics line is no different: tons of eyeshadows, powders creams and glosses that glimmer with blinding brilliance when they cross even a single photon, plus a pearlescent shimmer that comes with an atomizer and a blush that makes you look like you have doll cheeks. You have to admire the dedication to an ethos that’s so over-the-top that it blurs the line between grotesque and cherubic. $17-$69 at Sephora in February.
