certain people are associated with certain things.
marilyn monroe and chanel no. 5, paris hilton and blatant sexuality*, valentino and the colour red, ... cory kennedy and flawless makeup ?
this is coming from the hipster prodigy who has incited mimetic behaviour among teenage girls all around the world with her mismatched outfits and her trademark tangled mop.
nylon magazine revealed yesterday that cory kennedy has collaborated with urban decay to create a cosmetics line.
here, they've brushed her perpetually unkempt & disheveled hair, covered her face with makeup and tarted her up real nice. that isn't to say that she looks terrible; just different. which is the underlying problem. will her loyal fans follow her through her this change, accepting her mainstream collabo; or will they turn the other cheek and eschew her for selling out ?
who knows. what really matters though, is the makeup. to paraphrase nylon magazine, it's a bright and vivid alternative to the signature amy winehouse eye. my verdict: much like florals, i think i'd like it in small doses. perhaps a thin sliver of serpent green for a bit of added drama in your daily life instead of the thick swipe of colour they've shown in the pictures. then again, urban decay is known for being over the top. after all, if we wanted subtlety, we would have chanel cosmetics to rely on.
*which is the nicer & more polite way of saying cooch exposure via dirty sex tapes.
