Today I cry tears of joy.
I hold in my hand the new Guerlain Vol de Nuit Shimmer Powder for Holiday 2011 (no not Voldemort).
I have many a renditions of Guerlain Holiday Shimmer Powders that I’ve purchased over the years and each proves to be unique and special to my collection however the Vol de Nuit Shimmer Powder, interestingly enough, has come full circle.
Victoria’s Secret Hypnotic Beauty Luminous Blush/Highlighter was released this week along with the new Hypnotic Beauty Collection for Fall at your local Victoria’s Secret Stores.
Anyone peek at the collection yet or haul some of it?
Let’s take a look at this blush/highlighter combo!
The Nuance Salma Hayek Flawless Mineral Cheek Trio caught my eye because of their size. After seeing promo images I thought these were the size of a MAC Blush but they are massive….! A little bigger than a MAC Mineralized Skinfinish rather than a Blush.
The intriguing mix of blush, bronzer, and highlighter all in one also captured my eye and I instantly wanted to give these a try. I got two of them for $12.99 thanks to a sale at CVS (they are normally $12.99 each).
Let’s take a look!
Pixi has a new highlighting powder for Fall yay! I’m such a mush when it comes to their powders as they always have a sweet little pixie print on the powders that makes me go all kinds of gaga.
All Over Magic Radiance Powder features five shades to highlight, brighten, and give a natural hint of colors to not only cheeks but eyes and body as well!
Take a look!
You know that one makeup item that you tell (or maybe your friends and family are daring enough to tell you) yourself you shouldn’t be wearing? For me it’s highlighter…I’ve actually come to terms with telling myself, “No, you can’t wear shimmery highlighter.”
Yay me! I’m so happy when I give myself a good talking to and I listen.
I can’t really take advantage of highlighters because I have a round face and wearing them just makes things look even rounder. Not a good look.
However, I collect ‘em like the crazy beauty junkie I am. I have zillions of pretty powders that I don’t really use because if you notice, most of ‘em, almost always, have shimmer.
Of course, Estee Lauder Pure Color Illuminating Powder Gelée pops up as part of their Fall 2011 Collection and my hands begin to sweat because I really need “da shimmery” powder.
Lucky enough I got one to show you today!
