A fact: Pucci patterns are kind of ugly. Another fact: We can’t help but love the iconic 1960s swirls. While we dream about a vintage silk Pucci mini-dress, like the one Jessica Stam wore to her birthday party last year, we might just settle for this new limited edition Pucci for Guerlain eyeshadow set. It’s about $75 at Sephora (France first, US a little later), and we know that's a lot of money. But the colors are cute, and a little Pucci eyeshadow on your lids is far more flattering than gigantic psychedelic whirls on other parts of your body - so those afraid of bold colors or prints in your wardrobe can still enjoy the Pucci experience. Plus, with a make-up bag this garish, you definitely can’t lose it in your purse! --ALISON COOL

Exclusive: Watch Pat McGrath Give Jessica Stam Statement Lips and Answer All our Lipstick Questions
Jessica Stam is the new face of CoverGirl, and a few weeks ago we got to sit at a spring trend mini-seminar with makeup guru Pat McGrath and Stam. McGrath is fresh off her first-ever movie gig, helping to transform Rooney Mara into Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And now she's prepping to do the makeup looks for 24 fashion shows in New York and Milan, but we got to catch up with her before the madness starts. CoverGirl is releasing some videos highlighting their new spring beauty launches which feature McGrath giving some how-tos, with Jessica Stam as muse. Fashionista has the second such video exclusively today, and we also had the opportunity to ask McGrath all our pressing lipstick application questions. Check out Stam's transformation below, and also get answers to such complicated issues as: When should you use a lip brush? Click through for our full interview with Pat McGrath and the new CoverGirl video.
