Spring Collections 2008

Bath and Body Works Hello Sugar! Collection

bath hellosugar 033108
I check up on Bath and Body Works daily to see if any new Temptations have been released and during my regular visit I noticed they had a new line available. I could be wrong but maybe this new line will be replacing the regular Temptation Collection that we’ve been seeing for the past few years!

The new collection is entitled Hello Sugar! and looks very promising. I’m hoping that this smells like a sweetened, fruity, sour combination of lemon and sugar but I’m fearful this will be some sort of Fresh Lemon Sugar dupe (not that I don’t love Fresh Lemon but something different would be lovely) I’m very much in favor of the fruity, sweet version please!

The collection includes a three in one shower gel, a body spray, a shimmer body lotion, a body meringue, and a lipgloss. It’s only available in the Hello Sugar! fragrance but I’m hopeful they’ll extend the line to include other scents! I love the Tempation line but I don’t mind seeing something new like this pop up either!

Wanna try it?

QVC Exclusive: Laura Geller "The Tropics" Lipstick and Gloss Set

Laura Geller was on QVC a few days ago as any good twisted cosmetic junkie would do I recorded the showing. I was fast forwarding through most of it but I came across this little kit she did and it intrigued me!

The pictures actually don’t do the product justice. The lipshade appears on screen to be a very lovely burnt red color and the gloss on top made it into a golden dark peachy shade. It was rather nice on the model that was sporting it.

They kept raving on and on about how good it smelled and tasted but no one said exactly what it was smelling and tasting of. I can only assume it’s some tropical taste hence the name!?

The packaging also sold me as it’s studded in pink glittery bits. Cutes!

The set is available from QVC for $24.25 USD under Item Number A6451. I haven’t ordered it because I’m playing good girl at the moment and saving my little pennies for Summer releases however I am curious and I do have a little bit of a burning lem in my stomach! If you’re familiar with the color PS Kiss this reminds me of that thus the need to purchase it is hard upon me!

Want this?

Own it already?

Just love Laura’s cosmetics?

Revlon Spring Collection 2008

I know, I know. Why the bloody hell am I posting about Revlon? So unlike me. I should put a disclaimer on this post to say I do not buy Revlon.

The reason I’m posting this is because much of my target audience flows in from abroad. I love you yanks but sadly you aren’t my main reader quota.

We tend to take what we can get here in the US for granted and likewise for those of you around the world.

There in lays my inspiration for this post.

Something as simple as Revlon’s Spring Collection may not yet be available around the globe (or available at all for that matter) so it’s my responsibility as a good blogger to inform all my readers outside of the US what happening here in drgustores!

Yay me!

So I came across some of the Revlon Spring Collection at CVS when I was doing some personal shopping for Miss Rows at Mostly Makeup.

Here’s what I came across (hold your applause until the end):

Revlon does this big deal about how limited these are but this isn’t Japan which basically translates as you can get this crap for ages and ages and it never leaves the shelf. How limited is that? I think I’ll sue Revlon for false advertisement! Remember when they released those Just Bitten Lip Stains 500 years ago? Oh sorry it was last year I think! Well those are still hanging around the shelf. Yay for limited edition products!

Anyway!

Here’s the line-up, without further snarky, wise cracking commentary from me!

Floral Affair Sheer Powder Blush Available in 4 Color Selections

Marble-ous Match Liner Available in 5 Shades

Soft on the Eye Sheer Loose Powder Eyeshadow Available in 3 Color Selections

Mix and Mingle Lip Palette Available in 6 Shade Selections
P lipMixMingle lg

Prices range from around $6.99-$9.99 USD and most places have buy one get one 50% off type a deals depending on the sale at the tim!

I actually must say that collection is interesting! I won’t personally buy any of it but it does appear rather nice to look at!

So…that’s all folks!

Hope you enjoyed this brief foray into US Drugstore Brands (mind you Revlon is available almost everywhere in the world but unsure if this particular collection has reached shores other then our own here in the US).

Loving this?

Own it?

Despise Revlon as much as the Muse?

Tell me all about it!

More Heatherette Swatches!

When I did my original post for Heatherette swatches I was having a difficult time getting a light enough image of the beauty powders so I swatched them on white paper!

Hope this helps for those of you curious about the Beauty Powder colors!

I also forgot to do the pigment swatch so that’s here as well icon wink

Top to Bottom: Pink Pearl Pigment, Alpha Girl Beauty Powder, and Smooth Harmony Beauty Powder

Givenchy Japan Spring Collection 2008

Here are a few releases on the shores of beautiful Japan that won’t be available stateside.

I’m debating with myself whether I need these. The price scares me slightly as it’s about $20 USD more then what I’d pay here in the US but both items are gorgeous aren’t they?

A very beautiful friend of mine is doing my shopping for me as she lives in Tokyo but it’s so difficult for me to decide if I really need these!

Ugh choices, choices!

Loving these?
