Dior Diorshow 360 Mascara and Dior Capture Totale Serum Foundation

We obviously aren’t yet done with the rotating mascara adventure as of yet since Diorshow 360 Mascara will be winging its way towards us for Spring 2011. I think we also seen this in Fall 2010 but don’t quote me here as I wasn’t paying attention, forgive a Muse would you?

How do you feel about the entire battery operated, rotating mascara thing? At first I kinda liked the idea now I’m thinking that maybe I was feeding into the hype a bit? I know I’m still on board with my Lancome Oscillation, no one’s gonna take that one away from me, LOVES!

I’m definitely curious about Dior’s version.

Also hitting the new Dior Capture Totale Serum Foundation.

Let’s a have look Dior fans!

Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3-in-1 Shower Smoothie Review, Photos

Seeking last minute stocking stuffers or a friendly hostess gift for a friend? Crack out the Ulta Peppermint Swirl 3-in-1 Shower Smoothie for the win!

This Philosophy dupe (or Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint) can be used as a shower gel, a shampoo, or as a bubble bath and has the sweet, cool, crispy scent of candy canes swirled with vanilla. It’s a touch more minty fresh than vanilla but it does the trick perfectly if you aren’t wanting to splurge on Philosophy version or you’re just missing Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint aka I can’t believe they didn’t bring it back along with lambie, what the hell are they thinking? Oh sorry did I go off on a rant there?

This is a nice jumbo, 24 oz size with a squirt topper for easy squeeze-free lathering up!

Ulta always has these Smoothies available for buy 2 Two, Get Two Free so check your local Ulta to see what deals they have going at the moment. Online this will set you back a mere $8.99 so it’s a nice budget pick however in store shopping is nesscary at this point if you’re wanting a last minute pressie!

Loves it!

It’s not Philosophy but it’s the next best thing particularly for the beauty budgeters!

How about you? Anyone try the transparent, colorless versions? Dunno why I never indulged considering I love the tinted ones!

Thanks to MAC Cham Pale I get my chance to try out the MAC Lip Conditioner + Lavender.

Let’s have a peek!

Smashbox In Bloom Spring 2011

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?

Soap & Glory Comes to the US in….September….

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?

Nope.

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?

Sephora?

CVS?

Ulta?
