“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet.”
Indeed, fair Juliet, what’s in a name? Obviously alot of emphasis is placed on brand names. Slap Chanel’s name across an eyelash curler and instantly it becomes something we all covet and must own.
The new Chanel Recourbe Cils de Chanel Precious Eyelash Curler became an instant obsession for me when it released in Asia earlier this year. I’ve been sitting on it for a while as I was unsure when the actual North America release would be, I suspected Holiday 2011. It appears we don’t have to wait as far away as Holiday as Chanel gifts us with their eyelash curler for the Fall season.
But I’m a beauty junkie and therefore I have no loyalties to any one product so I’m always willing to try something new! Eep! How horrid of me to go cheating on Rosebud Salve but sorry the new Nuance Salma Hayek Rose Petal Hydrating Balm looked mighty interesting and it whispered at me to take it home since its on sale this week at CVS.
It didn’t take a whole lot of urging from the balm to actually get me to buy it….!
The new Stila Love and Empower Set is a palette inspired by the book, The Help, which is about a twenty-something year old named Skeeter who is a southern girl who returns home after graduating from college in 1962 and proceeds to turn her small town upside down by interviewing the African American women who have spent their lives taking care of rich southern families. What insures is a story about the empowerment of women, both from lower and upper classes.
