I absolutely adore the promo model’s image for the Smashbox In Bloom Spring 2011 Collection. It’s so fresh and clean, very natural for Spring with a minimalist finish but just the right amount of makeup to flatter.
But I couldn’t help but wonder how they got such a great eye look from the Smashbox In Bloom Eye Palette which contains some really smoky shades. This is one reason you probably should never depend on stock imagery to make your makeup choices as I’m guessing the palette looks way better in the flesh than it does in the promo shot.
Anyone with me?
Well, wow, we just have to wait 100 makeup years before we hear where Soap & Glory will land. After being absent from our Target shelves so long I’m starting to come to terms with the fact that I can’t get my favorite Soap & Glory goodies at my favorite store (<3 you Target!).
Your Target shelves are probably already bare or getting to be bare as the Soap & Glory stock disappears for good from the US. After a promise to, “Be Back Soon!” we haven’t heard much from the brand until their recent launch in Singapore. Which got us quite excited as that meant they must be on their way to the US really soon right?
The most recent news to hit is Soap & Glory is still working on a retailer and will be available in the US starting in…..September. Ouch.
So look for Soap & Glory to be hitting some retailer, some where in the US, starting in September aka 100 makeup years away! If you aren’t here by Fall 2011, we are road tripping our way to England and storming the nearest Boots for our fix! So get here QUICK!
Where do you think they’ll land?

Ahhh Day 11! Almost getting to the big finale for Day 12 here on Musings, I hope you’ll like it!
But before 12 we have to do 11 and on the 11th Day of Christmas I have for you…
Ahhh the mood lipgloss. Overly done as hell but always a fun choice in the makeup world. NYX Mood Lipgloss is the newest, color changing, perfect shade of YOU lipgloss to hit the scene.
I know, I know. We’ve seen it all before but personally NYX Mood Lipgloss brings a little something extra to the table.
Let’s have a peek!
After the Holidays, Winter is pretty much unleashed on New Yorkers far and wide although this year we got a taste of the bitter cold super early.
Needless to say, combining harsh, cold weather with skin does not make a pretty face. Think redness, flakiness, dry patches, and other woe and drama to play havoc with your skin.
Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Serum releases just in time for those winter-weary complexions that need some extra TLC. This serum gives an immediate feeling of comfort on contact and not only helps to improve the texture of your skin but also acts as a moisture barrier, sealing and locking in hydration while sporting anti-aging ingredients to help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and giving skin a more firmer, lifted look!
Ingredients include wheat, bran, and olive extract complex to help strengten skin’s natural barrier while improving its ability to lock moisture in. Vitamin C and a powerful peptide helps to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Clary Sage Extract encourages skin cell turnover and sweeps away dull surface cells to reveal a fresh, radiant surface while Magnolia Bark Extract, Sucrose and Caffeine help reduce visible redness caused by irritation and finally Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin and Meadowfoam Seed Oil infuse skin with moisture, instantly and over time.
Apply in in the morning and again in the evening followed up with your moisturizer of choice for smoother, healthier skin!
I’m of the mentality that a good serum is an absolute essential item when battling harsh Winter weather particularly for those of us who sport dry skin so Bobbi Brown’s Extra Repair Serum definitely sounds interesting.
Available in January at Bobbi Brown counters and online at www.bobbibrowncosmetics.com
