I know what I want in my Easter Basket this year. Yes, some NARS Gift Sets if you please.
Bright, playful shades of color are so in for Spring so NARS introduces two new gift sets with limited edition products that include pops of playful shades for a sexy yet sophisticated Spring look!
NARS Tainted Love Gift Set $59
Following the success of Angelika Lip Gloss, the cotton candy hue with gold particles makes its debut as an iconic Multiple for the first time. For the girl who can’t get enough of shocking pink, the Tainted Love Gift Set includes Angelika Lip Gloss, Angelika Multiple and Schiap Nail Polish.

NARS Forever Yours Gift Set $49
For a more subtle approach to makeup lends its way to the Forever Yours Gift Set. Available for the first time is a medium-sized Deep Throat Lip Gloss, accommodated by an Orgasm Illuminator – two products perfect for a girly, daytime look. Instantly refresh for evening with an effortless swipe of the gold-infused smoky Aigle Noir Soft Touch Shadow Pencil.
Available exclusively at www.Sephora.com
The hardest part is decided which set I want.
Oh yeah I know, BOTH!
Here’s some highlights from the upcoming QVC Beauty’s Best Show that starts this Saturday, April 2nd! It’s an all day event full of beautiful products. I’ll be telling you more about each item shortly but check out this sneak peek slideshow!

Mmm Laura Geller Eye-rageous Collection reminds me a bit of NYX’s Runway Eyes Palettes…..
Fair and Square is one of four new shades available in the Sonia Kashuk Eyeshadow Quads that should be popping up at your local Target for Spring 2011.
I posted about these several weeks ago and finally got a few to try. They are proving a chore to locate at Target, every display I’ve come across has been whistling a little tune of sold out but no worries they are available online and if you’re lucky at your local store.
I fell in love with Fair and Square this week and feel like it’s a you NEED this kinda quad for Spring (and Summer).
Let’s take a look!
I hear Caudalie has a new eye cream! Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream promises all sorts of bells and whistles to erase signs of aging and depuff these tired old eyes.
I think I needs some.
Speaking of Caudalie let me tell you about my latest obsession, Beauty Elixir, how in the world did I ever live without it?
You NEED this.
Well, it’s turning into a bronze-y kinda Summer. Brands are really digging into the bronze this year. I try to make bronze work by going peachy with it as I really don’t dig a tanned look, I’m busy trying to be as bright and white as humanly possible and SPF’ing myself to death.
But there isn’t a doubt I like shades of Summer on my lips and eyes just not all over my face.
The Body Shop Honey Bronze for Summer 2011 does some retro bronze and takes a note from MAC, you’ll see what I mean after the jump!
Heads up! If you’ve had your eye on the Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit I recently reviewed might I suggest grabbing it from QVC?
QVC has thrown in my HG (holy grail) brush with Bobbi’s new concealer and kept the price at $32! Sweet deal in my opinion (although you have to pay shipping) as the brush is never sold on its own from Bobbi Brown.
Some folks may say you can use any old blending brush to apply the powder in this set but I personally love this brush. The brush picks up just the right amount of product and allows even the driest, aging eyes to wear powder without aging eyes further or making them appear drier.
I once lost it and proceeded to purchase the Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit for $70 on QVC just so I could get a new one.
Yes, I love it that much!
Anyway, thought I’d share just in case you’ve been thinking of trying her new concealer kit!

Make an island escape this Summer with the mark Ibiza Sol Collection!
Revlon’s done it, Josie’s done it too, now Smashbox takes on a lip stain pen with a balm!
Those on a look out for a new foundation for Summer might want to check out Korean brand, Holika Holika’s Aqua Petit Jelly.
Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly offers a lightweight coverage in a creamy formula with an SPF 20 and might I say the packaging is too darling, makes me want to eat it up!
As you know I quite loved Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Cleanser so I thought I might as well give the Clean & Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub a run for it.
Let’s take a look!
NP Set Say Goodnight Night Cream is one of several new skincare products that recently launched as part of the NP Set Target Collection.
Anyone see the new NP Set Skincare at their local Target yet? I saw the display several days ago and was curious about the cleanser. I have been testing out the Night Cream and so far I like it.
Let’s take a look!
Excuse me while I squeal!
While I brace myself for a Summer full of bronze, I’m so not on board with the trend, I’ve come across a few options that I am willing to indulge in.
The Bobbi Brown Metallic Eye Set is so one!
Embrace Bobbi’s best bronze-y shades with Penny (Golden Copper), Gold Dust (Champagne Gold) and Java (Silky Mahogany) and dress them up with a full size eye shadow brush and a mini Perfectly Defined Mascara and call yourself Summer ready!
The set is $70 (a $28 savings of its original $98 price tag) and comes packaged in a special edition cloth bag, cinched up tight with a signature Bobbi Brown Ribbon.
A bronze trend even I can embrace.

Come to mama!
Guerlain Rouge Automatique will be available this April (I’ve seen them on counter already wink!) and is Guerlain’s first capless lipstick. Fun times, a slide up and down lippie, it appeals to my inner gadget girl dontcha know!
The packaging isn’t the only appeal but the long lasting hold formula also had me highly curious.
Let’s take a look!
