Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm Summer 2012 1

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm is coming your way for Summer 2012! Finally! Europeans have gotten the release for two or three Summers now but for some reason the product has never released to the Western market.

Why you torture us so Clarins?

Much to my delight I recently reported to you that Clarins would be launching these with their new Enchanted Summer Collection.

Take a peek!

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain Review & Swatches

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain Swatches1

Being generally obsessed with cheek stain anything has taken me down the road to youthful, playfully pretty looks for most of makeup life. I’ve always gone the cheek stain route versus powders and creams because of the long wear time and the lovely little pop of color they give my cheeks and face.

In recent years, I started to use more and more powder blush which isn’t particularly forgiving on drier skin. Why oh, why did I ever stop using cheek stains?

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain is the Cadillac of stains, seriously, this is gorgeous stuff although the near $50 price tag hurts my feelings a fair bit.

Ah Betty….girl, you make me smile.

Where else can you get testimonials about your pubes like this one:

“I love it! I have salt and pepper hair and a gray beard. Some gray down there and it’s now black, I can’t wait to shower at the health club and go to my doctor for a check up! I know he won’t say anything but he will think WOW hair so black down there.”

-Ralph, Betty Beauty user

I wanna meet Ralph, I wanna shake the man’s hand for writing that wicked testimonial. You’re ace in my book Ralph! Go on now with your awesome black hair down there.

Did You Know Fergie is the New Face of Wet n Wild?

Wet n Wild Fergie

Fergie is so licious that she has her hands in all kinds of beauty goodies. She has two fragrances with Avon and most recently, wait for it, step back, pause….drum roll…

She’s been selected as the first Face and Global Ambassador for Wet n Wild.

In addition to being the new face for the brand she’ll be launching some signature products for them as well.

She was supposed to shoot her first campaign photos in March but I haven’t yet seen images surface. I imagine they have plans for either a big Summer launch or more of a Fall 2012, Back to School launch. We shall see!

What do you think of Fergie and Wet n Wild?

Stila Passion Fruit Crush Lip & Cheek Stain So Wait, It’s Red Right?

Stila Passion Fruit Crush Lip Cheek Stain 12

I told you earlier this month that Stila had plans to release a new shade of Crush Lip & Cheek Stain in Passion Fruit. This was an unexpected treat as the Crushes have been on and off sale lately so a few of us were busy biting our finger nails and pacing, worried the Crush Collection would be discontinued. What would our makeup staining lives be like without Stila Crush in it? My God! The horror of it all!

Interestingly enough they waited to release the shade with their Summer 2012 Collection.

But wait…it’s supposed to be red right?
