Beauty Reflections: A Look Back At Summer 2010

Beauty Reflections

I can’t believe Summer is almost over. In some ways it lasted for ages and in others it feels like it flew by. Did you enjoy your Summer so far? Do anything special?

As Summer draws to a close, I’ll be reviewing the last of the Summer items I have stashed away and start to concentrate more on Fall and Holiday 2010. It’s quite an exciting time as I simply adore Holiday Collections!

Until we get deeper into Fall and Holiday we might as well enjoy the last days of Summer the best we can right? Here are some great posts from Summer 2010 that you may have missed!

NARS Skin Smoothing Face Prep released this Summer and it wasn’t exactly what I had hoped it would be. Some people loved it, alot of people hated it, and I gotta admit mine fell deep into the Makeup Graveyard!

MAC’s Marine Life Powder is still sitting untouched in my beauty vault, right next to Stereo Rose. It was Summer’s must have item and a hot commodity at MAC counters who got as little as five compacts in stock! Beauty junkies who scored it, struck gold, literally!

Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow Just Peachy Review and Swatches

So who nailed Stereo Rose? I sent my sister on a mission to mars to see if she could snag me one at Macy’s on her trip to the bank this morning. She isn’t back yet. Do you think the MAC gods ate her? I need my Stereo Rose damnit.

I didn’t think this would sell out so quickly but my MAC store got six and they wouldn’t hold any no matter how much I begged, pleaded, and promised them mounds of cash. Oh well.

If you got it I officially fart in your general direction and if you’re in the FAIL group with me, let’s all huddle together and have a group prayer session.

Anyway off the topic of Stereo Rose, this morning I was messing around with a limited edition Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow in Just Peachy.

Maybelline Eye Studio Cream Eyeshadow Trio Revew, Swatches, and Photos

K, gather round kids.

Some brand, I think it’s either Maybelline or Revlon has cream shadows available in a 5 shadow palette. I’m too lazy to look it up but I’m positive drugstore junkies know what I’m talkin’ about. Fast forward and you have the brand new Maybelline Eye Studio Cream Eyeshadow Trio Palettes that are popping up at drugstores far and wide.

You probably remember that last Fall, Maybelline gifted us with the joys of their new duos and quads which I pretty much loved. So of course, when they introduced the cream shadow trio I was all about hauling to review for you but mind you, it was purely for selfish reasons, as I just wasn’t thinking about you here, I was thinking how much maybe I’d love these too!

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstain should be available at your local store right now. Yay! New lip stains, come on get happy. I do suggest snagging them prior to Sunday at Walgreens if possible as they are Buy 1, Get 1 50% Off (Wish I got this deal grrrr I paid $8.99 each at Harmons). Might as well save money on your lemmings right?
