Summer Collections 2010
Mmmmm blast from my Stila Summer past here. I was sorting through my “to be reviewed” pile a few days ago, that would be a large pile of products that get photographed and tossed into a bin for safe keeping. This pile tends to get out of control sometimes so you’ll find me diving in head first and proceeding to rummage around to see what looks good for reviewing quite often.
Anyway, during my daily plunder through the bin I realized, wow, I didn’t review the Stila One Step Primer Color that was released with Stila’s Summer Collection this year.
Anyone haul it?
We had discussed which you would buy at the time since Summer was all about various cream blushes and this happened to be one that did everything plus walked your dog too! Stila dubs it a primer, eyeshadow, highlighter, lip color, cheek color, and bronzer. Ummm…dare I say NOT!
I’ve held off my review on Giorgio Armani Beauty Blushing Fabric for a while now. I purchased all three shades of this blush early in July or so when it originally released. But counters had gotten a very limited stock in plus online was sold out for a little bit which is why I didn’t want to tempt and tease you with something that might prove unattainable.
I thought these were running for a limited time but two of my Armani Beauty counters have recently restocked and they are readily available again on www.giorgioarmanibeauty-usa.com so I’d said it’s about time I told you all about them.
Want the good word?
Don’t wait too long to snatch up the Clarins Instant Sun Light Eye Quartet Palette as it’s still on counters and definitely a gorgeous palette not only for Summer but also well into Fall!
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!
I had my Summer crush on the new Stila Raspberry Lip and Cheek Lip Stain!
Hard Candy had a really late Spring release, that turned more into a Summer one for me and one thing that happened to be a must have item was the new Hard Candy Moon Glow, loved it!
Too Faced Lip Insurance Lip Primer turned into a solid gold beauty product as it held my gloss on tight all day long!
The Bath and Body Works Summer Vanillas are still haunting stores after an early Summer release and all these months later!
Lancome took me right to the Riviera with their Summer 2010 Collection!
I was almost a cave dweller with Gloss Fluo De Chanel Brilliant Lip Shine as my guiding light!
The Target Look Book for Spring and Summer 2010 enthralled many of us!
Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams made a major splash with many of us!
I’m still not sure which I loved more this Summer, Lorac’s Hollywood Hot List…..
Or Lorac’s Little Black Palette….!
Wet n Wild ColorIcon Collection was the bestest beauty budget purchase evers!
I loved it so much I decided to convince everyone they NEEDED the DuWop Flight Stick!
Avon’s Sunset Glow Bronzer wasn’t only beautiful, it was an affordable Summer makeup find as well!
Essence Surfer Babe Collection hit Ulta as the first limited edition collection from the brand within the US and boy are we so hopeful it won’t be the last!
Urban Decay Urban Defense defended my Summer skin against the sun and made it look super flawless!
Too bad Stila’s Pro Artist Palette was such a snore!
I hit the Beach Club with Bobbi Brown!
Maybelline created some sizzling Salsa Sun Lipsticks!
These are just some of the happenings on Musings this Summer. Check the archives for more!
And feel free to comment about makeup or beauty finds that stood out for YOU this Summer!

In the beauty world, seasons start fairly early. We are full into Fall at the moment and by the end of the month discussions on Holiday 2010 will begin.
But, even though it’s ending soon, Summer is very much in the here and now. Avon Summer 2010 has recently launched on their website and they are about the virtues of lighter makeup and keeping cool and fresh during the warm weather.
Speaking of lighter makeup remember the Avon Smooth Minerals Lip Tint I showed you a few weeks ago? Wanna take a closer look at ‘em?
If your beauty budget is of the shoestring variety and you’re looking for an inexpensive subtle little fragrance treat for the last few weeks of Summer, you might want to cheek out the new Avon Ice Sheers Eau de Toilette Sprays.

Hope everyone is geared up for the weekend. I know I am. I’m off on holiday next weekend thru the following week but I can’t help but wish I was leaving today. Another whole week of work? Noooo I wanna go NOW! But at least I got Saturday and Sunday to enjoy before the grind begins again.
I’ve been mucking about with the new Benefit Ultra Lip Shines this week, I so want to spell that Ulta for some reason. Anyway…did you see that Benefit released Some Kind of Gorgeous Deep? I know alot of people are fans but couldn’t find a proper match, maybe this will be yours.
Anyway, ’bout those Ultra Lip Shines.
