Spring Collections 2012
Metallic (I see these as more of a Fall color palette) is a weird one for Spring but that’s exactly where Tom Ford is headed with his Spring 2012, just wait until you see the gorgeous Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes I ordered recently from Neimans (better get ‘em quick some of the shades are sold out on counter).
Another thing that captured my interest was the new range of Tom Ford Beauty Nail Lacquers in some very wicked metallic shades.
Not a nail girl but YES, please, I’ll take ‘em!
Love when VS takes Love Spell, my favorite scent, and twists it up with new and exciting notes. I remember a few years ago they did single note Love Spell blends that sold out super fast, I never did get my hands on them and I still mourn them.
This year, Love Spell gets a fresh new spin with the Love Spell Blush Collection.
Take a look.
Eco Tools is such an affordable way to get your hands on some fairly great quality brushes with soft, shed-free bristles.
I’m loving their new Beautiful Expressions Kabuki Set, I’d like one in my Easter basket please.
Stila introduced Sparkle Luxe Gloss for Spring 2012. Tell me your ears didn’t perk up when you heard sparkle. I eat glitter and sparkle for breakfast, dinner, and lunch!
Let’s take a little peek all this glittery goodness.
I think there’s something to said about a bronzer the size of your head. Sephora wants the world to glow and for $24 you’ll have all the bronzer you’ll ever need and some left over change to purchase a small village to use it on (as well as yourself).
Let’s take a look at the new Sephora Hot Hues All Over Bronzer ($24).
My first experience with lipstain/cheek stain was when I purchased the Schick Stick off of HSN about 10 years ago (it might have been even be longer than 10 years ago).
Yeah, the Schick Stick, sounds like a razor to me. But actually it was a cheek and lip stain housed in a tube with a sponge applicator. It was created by the super friendly, utterly gracious, and oh so gorgeous Morgen Schick (she e-mailed me randomly a few years ago just to say hello and thanks for liking her product, I was gobsmacked to say the least).
Morgen, to this very day, still sells her brilliant cheek stain/lipstain and it remains a fond favorite of mine.
Lip and Cheek Stains have evolved so much though. New packaging, formulas, etc…where as before the market was lacking, now the market is saturated with all kinds of stains.
I think one of the main complaints about stains is the irony that they have such a long wear time on cheeks but go drier on lips and sometimes don’t wear as well.
The new Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain is testimony that hope is still alive for a lip stain that wears all day with a hydrating formula.
Take a look!
Ahh pure rosy sophisticated joy from the new Napoleon Perdis Nude Rose Lip Gloss today.
I don’t own enough warm, rosy shades like this in my collection.
Stila Eye Shadow Sets (Trios) are now $12 at Sephora. You might recall Stila’s venture into the budget realm with the It Girl Palette sometime ago, these sets follow the same design and concept but are now available in five shade selections.
- Hollywood Blvd
- Melrose Ave
- Mullholand Drive
- Santa Monica Blvd
- Sunset Blvd
The original It Girl Palette was quite good quality but Stila definitely has a track record for turning down the volume on some of their budget picks so I imagine these aren’t the original Stila Eyeshadow formula but I’ll have to wait and see how they are.
On a positive note, they are $12 bucks!
Available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
If thicker lashes is what you seek than Tarina Tarantino Fleur de Lash Mascara is here to save the day. No bells, no whistles, just a big, bushy brush that grabs lashes up and creates plump, full, fat lashes.
Ahh the joy of simplicity.
The new Sana Hadanomy Aqua Placenta Collection has launched. You might recall my deep love and lust for the original Sana Hadanomy Collection, check back into the archives for the reviews, this is an extension of that line with a new formula.
Take a look!
The Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection has officially launched on counter and online at www.esteelauder.com! Curious minds, have you indulged in the compact and lippie?
I was wishing for a set that included both pieces in a fancy vintage box, wouldn’t that be lovely?
Take a look!
