Spring Collections 2008
I’m not a big fan of self tanners, tanning, or anything else that has to do with the sun. I keep far away from bronzing, tanning, and anything else of that nature. I like my pure white skin very much thank you!
However, if you happen to love tanning and such you might want to see out Benefit’s new tan in a tube entitled Talk to the Tan. As I recall Benefit used to have a similar product entitled Aruba in a Tube or something like that. Another equally scary product from what I remember!
But ado if you’re dying for a tan in a tube do check out Benefit’s newest product!
If you do try it I want details and a review! Curious minds how it works! I know my sister is dying to get her hands on this but she’s the type that loves to look like burnt toast.
I just blogged MAC Fafi not so long ago but it feels like ages since we last discussed MAC doesn’t it? It does however deserve to be mentioned that I’m enjoying how well MAC is doing with releases lately. They are spaced apart very nicely and I’m not seeing a huge flow of releases as we did last year. We seriously were borderline 3 collections a month or something last year and it was a bit too much for me to keep up with! But it’s been almost a month since Fafi’s release now and I’m liking the jive of MAC spacing it’s releases apart! I hope they keep it up!
MAC has two new Collections up and available for purchase at the moment one of which I’ll most definately be overindulging in myself! Obviously you can guess which one right?
Beauty Powder Blush!
I’ve heard so many rave reviews about the Beauty Powder Blushes and I’m definately picking up a few for myself!
The newest color story consists of eight beauty powders and two brushes.
I heart MAC Beauty Powders anyway and the idea of a pigmented beauty powder really thrills me. Most of the Beauty Powders I have either have a healthy dose of shimmer or are a matte color. Both of which are best used for highlighting! These new Beauty Powders are more pigmented so you can honestly get away with wearing them as a blush I’d say!
The colors appear very vibrant and bold so using them alone or to beef up your favorite blush will make the a cool multitasking tool to have in your beauty arsenal!
I’m currently lemming Joyous, Sweetness, and Serenely!
Each powder is $17.50 USD which is about a $3 difference from the standard MAC Blush. I believe these are about the same size as a MAC Blush as well and not the bigger compacts that some Beauty Powders have been known to come in!
I’m loving the look of the MAC 169 as well since it appears the perfect tool for application!
Honestly, I’m really wanting a few of these!

MAC’s newest color story, Strobe, is up and available at MAC if you’re interested!
Strobe is actually a color story that’s somewhat near and dear to my heart because it contains the Tinted Lip Conditioner Sticks.
A little history…..
My first venture into MAC was during the Sweetie Cake release and at the time they had offered Lip Conditioner Sticks and I had purchased one in the color pink resort. It had become a true favorite of mine and I toted it around everywhere. I’ve had to replace it three times since purchasing it by seeking it out on E-bay and paying way above retail for it.
My faithful friend, Pink Resort!
When MAC released Strobe I was over the moon at the prospect of getting my hands on new Lip Conditioners. I know a few people have ranted that they are sheer and just not worth the price and such but for me they are gold. I really love the natural look they give plus the moisturizing benefit alone is well worth the cost.
As you can see the packaging differs slightly from the previous release of lip conditioners! I’m really liking the new packaging which is on the right hand side!
I must admit that this year’s releases aren’t nearly as pigmented as my Pink Resort but I’m still loving the colors and the formula!
Strobe Current, Strobe Rays, and Strobe Kiss
If you’re a big lover of smoothing your lips down with balms, chapstick, or just one for loving a very smooth, moisturizing lip treatment this may very well be what you seek! I seriously have a bad habit of not touching up lipstick and gloss so I throw one of these in my purse for quick touch ups. They make my lips feel great plus I’m not completely bare lipped!
Strobe is definately something you might want to check out! I’m pretty curious about the cream which promises to revive and refresh dull, tired skin!
Strobe is available now at MAC!

If you can believe it Tiffa has updated it’s website!
Big news here.
I can’t recall the last time Tiffa bothered updating it’s site and not only have they updated but they have a new Spring Collection up and available!
I’m not sure when this new line hits shops in Japan but I’d say shortly.
Tiffa is a sub-company of Kanebo and carries a small but lovely line of products that are inexpensive. The updates to the line seem very interesting and I may add a few to my wish list!
Three Glitter Liners have been introduced in pink, silver, and black for 1000 yen each.
Also available are three “fragrant waters”. I’m not sure if these are body sprays or spray toners!
And finally three cologne sprays! The introduction of these leads me to believe that the above could be spray toners! I sure hope so because they look interesting if they are!
The new site is far easier to navigate if you are unable to read characters. The original site was cute but annoying as you had to unlock doors and such to see products. The new site offers a range of categories to find exactly what you are looking for quickly plus the pink theme is so sweet!
Not really any major releases for Tiffa but it’s nice to see the brand isn’t forgotten as it’s been a while inbetween releases! I’m holding onto the hope that they do some more of the dual shadow shimmers! The gold and silver is gorgeous! Love to see more!

Benefit’s released a Sephora exclusive kit that includes it’s popular oil free foundation Some Kind of Gorgeous along with some other interesting bits and pieces.
The kit also includes Eye Bright, Get Bent Lash Mascara, Benetint, a Mousepad, a carrying case.
The kit is $48 USD and available from Sephora now.
I’m personally not partaking of this particular kit but for you Benefit lovers this might be something you want to snatch up!
I’ve always been curious about Some Kind of Gorgeous but each time I test it on the back of my hand in the store it just feels so wrong and the color is so beige and unflattering!!
