Beauty News: Twilight Beauty Coming Soon!

Twilight+Beauty+Cosmetics

Hey gang!

How’s the day treating you? Mine is absolute rubbish so far. I have such drama in my life right now it’s not even funny.

Anyway, a rather busy Monday as always after the weekend. Hope yours is better than mine.

I was browsing around and the Twilight Beauty website is officially launched. As of Friday they had a great round of flash going with different photos of the stars in Twilight and a few pictures of the makeup line but right now it’s back to being a simple “coming soon” logo. Damn, wish I captured a few screenshots while the going was good. On Friday the release date for the collection going live was on August 15th but now they just have a spot to slap your e-mail address so you’ll be officially alerted when it does go on sale. I’m ever hopeful that they keep the August 15th date as I’m impatient to see what the line looks like.

For further information do see my Twilight Beauty Cosmetics as it tells you more about what to expect from the line.

Keep yourself in the know by visiting the official site at www.twilightbeauty.com

I’ll bring you further coverage as it becomes available.

For now do share your thoughts on Twilight Beauty in the comment field.

Indulging?

Yay?

Nay?

Stash Spotlight: B Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful Eye Shadow Palette

Many of you enjoyed my brief foray into B Never Cosmetics during my lash stash spotlight so today I thought I’d just do a few pictures of the fantastic B Never Shadow Palettes they used to carry.


I haven’t been to a B store in two years but as far as I know these are no longer available which is a shame.

Click ahead for the deets and pictures!

The palette is a gorgeous, heavy jewel encrusted affair and houses five shades of B Never Eye Shadow inside. It has a bit of a Indian theme to it somewhat as the little jewels and bling look like tiny bindis. It’s quite a nice piece of cosmetic and obviously very vanity worthy. I plopped one of the regular smaller B Never single shadows next to the larger palette so you can see the size difference.


You can find B by visiting www.bnevertoobusytobebeautiful.co.uk

They do ship to the US!

Hope you enjoyed this adventure into B Never. More to come soon!

Fall Nude Lips: Urban Decay Naked Lipstick FOTD


I expressed my delight over the brand new Urban Decay Lipstick for Fall 2009 in Naked in a review recently. Naked is such a flattering shade of nude pink that will pair up beautifully well with a dramatic eye look or in my case a pink look!

Jump ahead for a peep!

For my look below I used a bit of Jill Stuart blush, Bobbi Brown Sparkle Eye Shadow in Ballet, and Urban Decay Lipstick in Naked topped with a clear gloss from Philosophy. The look is fairly simple and innocent. As you can see Naked pairs up very nicely with a no nonsense, less than dramatic eye look but it’ll go along just as well with a bolder look that requires a nude lip look that won’t take away from the eyes. I’m normally not one for loving nude shades of lipstick but I fell in love with Naked almost instantly on swatch. It’s one the most flattering shades of nude pink I’ve come across and doesn’t have a mod look but more of a dewy finish that makes my lips look very natural.

By the way my fresh skin can be blamed on Skin79 BB Cream!
