Got a little dragon fever? Could be Skyrim in my case but blame it on the Year of the Dragon, 2012 if you haven’t indulged in that addiction quite yet.
The new Hello Kitty 2012 Year Of The Dragon Compact Mirror celebrates the New Year in style with a gold-toned mirror compact!
To celebrate Chinese New Year and the year of the dragon, it comes in a special commemorative box. The Chinese characters for “Happy New Year” are subtly printed at the top of the mirror and there are two versions of the mirrors available one with 1x and one with 3x magnification.
Available now at Sephora and Sephora.com for $18.
New season, new True Romance Eyeshadow Palette from Kate Von D.
This one features some vibrant, bold shades of color for Spring.
Take a peek!
Little low on dough but really wanting the Chanel Natural Finish Powder in Jasmin I reviewed recently?
MAC Beauty Powder to the rescue!
Here’s a little sneaky peek at the Bobbi Brown Ultra Nude Palette that released with Bobbi’s new Neons and Nudes Spring 2012 Collection.
Take a lookiee!
I’m seeing quite a few cleansing waters released at the moment. They aren’t a hugely popular product in the US but they do decently well in the Asian market. One in particular that’s cult favorite is Mandom Cleansing Water. I reviewed this quite a few years ago on Musings and its kinda my lazy girl makeup remover for when I’m really not up for the huge nightly regime to get my makeup off.
Cleansing waters are fairly nice because they are not only simple and to the point for makeup removal but most do a damn good job tackling waterproof makeup while still remaining gentle enough not to strip skin or dry it out. Of course, this is from my experience using Asian ones, I haven’t really used any in the US.
Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water happened across my desk a few weeks ago and I’m happy to say I’m enjoying it immensely.
I don’t like lip palettes.
Not only are they gross but, I dunno, I just like applying my lipstick and gloss from a tube with an applicator, etc…I’m a traditionalist. Lip palettes get mighty messy plus they are a breeding ground for bacteria.
Bobbi Brown has somewhat changed my mind on lip palettes, almost, kinda, sorta….
But I admit I indulged in the new Too Faced Natural Kiss Neutral Lip Color Collection. I just had to have it. It went so well with their box eyeshadow set plus the shades looked delightful along side my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Gasp! Is it sacrilegious to wear Urban Decay on my eyes and Too Faced on my lips? I always think of them as complete rivals, kinda celebrity smack down style thing going on between the two brands…in this corner we have Urban Decay in this corner we have Too Faced Cosmetics…BATTLE ON!
Remember when Chanel released Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shines? I freaking loved those things. They just popped.
My new obsession?
Bobbi Brown Neons and Nudes Lipgloss.
The sexy beast that is Mila Kunis is the New Face of Dior!
I love Mila, she’s just so exotic looking.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be working with Dior. The brand is iconic in so many ways. It defines fashion, elegance and sophistication.”
The new Spring/Summer 2012 Dior advertising campaign with Mila Kunis showcases the iconic Miss Dior bag. The champaign is set to debut worldwide this month.
I think she makes a fine addition to the Dior family.
What do you think?
Loving the idea of Mila heading up a Dior campaign?
No? Who would you pick?
I’m the happy owner of a few Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes.
Many of you already tried them but I just got a chance to test them out yesterday, actually, I’m still in the midst of testing them out at the moment. Quite a few folks mentioned they were sheer and very subtle, true that….so far I’m have issues getting some of the lighter shades to show up on my skin. But the texture is rather awesome, I like the springy clay-like action of it! The texture kinda reminds me of a lighter version of the Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow.
Jump ahead for a few swatches!
Here’s another one of the new Stila Palettes that are launching exclusively at Nordstrom Rack.
