Estee Lauder Pure Color Modern Mercury Fall 2011 Collection

Although I gave you a very brief glance at the new Estee Lauder Pure Color Modern Mercury Collection for Fall 2011 late last week today I bring you the entire release including prices, shades, and product information.

I normally love Estee Lauder Fall but I’m not sure Modern Mercury is quite me. Tom Pecheux’s, Estee Lauder’s Creative Director, was inspired by creative reflections found in modern architecture and how buildings never look the same color because they are flecting what is around them. His idea is that wearing the same makeup should never end up looking the same way. An interesting concept to say the least.

Let’s take a look!


NARS Fall Collection 2011

Don’t kill me, but I haven’t been excited about a NARS Collection in a long, long time. Nothing has really jumped out at me from the brand in a few seasons now and I’m beginning to panic…have I lost my NARS groove?

I should be thanking the makeup Gods right? Money saved?

I want NARS to surprise me with some incredibly brilliant blush a la O or Super O but only better….

It can happen right?

How about NARS Fall 2011?

Maybe that will whet my appetite?

Check it!


Smashbox Photo Set Pressed Powder

Flawlessness? Feels unachievable sometimes.

But we have our nifty little makeup bits to make us practically perfect in every way a la Mary Poppins.

Smashbox Photo Set Pressed Powder might just be the trick for a flawless complexion!


In Need of Some Extra Storage?

I’m not sure how many of you share my OCD personality that demands I store everything in bins, boxes, and containers. If you happen to have this disease might I suggest stopping by your local Target and picking up some of the cute Rubbermaid style bins they have available at the moment.

This particular one caught my eye because of the printed design that has words all over it referencing the objects, junk, stuff, whatnots, and items inside.

Cute eh?

The container is fairly large so you can store boxes of Facial Sheet Masks inside it or makeup and other bits and bobs. Each bin is $5.99 and comes in a variety of prints including a rather pretty floral one.

Thought I’d give you a heads up if you need some extra storage!


Wet n Wild Dreamweaver ColorIcon Trio Eyeshadow Swatches

The new Wet n Wild DreamWeaver Collection brings out six new ColorIcon Trio Eyeshadows for $2.99 each.

These are popping up for a limited time in drugstores however I personally don’t think you have to rush to grab them as they have alot of similar shades in them from ColorIcon’s past…and some even remind me of shades from both the Fall and Holiday 2010 release. So if you own alot of WnW already just check your stash for possible dupes before dishing out any cash.

Here’s a few swatches, I’ll follow up with a review soon!
