Weekend Roundup

Last week some of you discussed the image I'm using for the Weekly Roundup. The idea the woman could be Lindsay Lohan has given me good chuckle. This is actually a cropped detail from a 1960s ad. I didn't save the source, but it was either Avon or one of the major drugstore brands. I do wonder who was the model.

Kari at Fabulous Over Forty tried out Clarisonic's new Opal Sonic Infusion System, with anti-aging sea serum for the eye area. It's the latest addition to the much-loved Clarisonic family. You will covet the Opal after you read her post!

Charlestongirl fell in love with Shu Uemura Art of Hair Ample Angora Volumizing Light Foam. She told us about its wonders at Best Things in Beauty.

Anne at BeautyXposé and Charlestongirl had their makeup perfected last weekend by Renato Almeida, National Makeup Artist for Shiseido. Renato used the fabulous new colors from Shiseido's Spring 2010 Collection. You have to see the eye shadow that they both loved - and the results!

Kelly told us what she would buy for Anne's mother, Connie, with a $100 gift card from Sephora. See what made the shopping cart for Connie's summer at Gouldylox Reviews!

Debbi at DivaDebbi spent at third of her youth doing what we all did: trying to get bronze. Now she has found Rephase D-White from an Italian anti-aging line to help undo the damage. She is thrilled with the results!

Cindy made some awesome product discoveries this month - from blush to hair to books. See what she's loving at Prime Beauty.

The swatching queen, KarlaSugar, got her hands on the new Tom Ford Lipsticks! Bet you'll pick out at least one of these beauties at The Next Best Thing to Going Shopping Yourself.

Enjoy your weekend and stay tuned for a special fragrance giveaway on Monday.


  1. I just saw that image recently when looking at old cosmetic advertisements. No mention about who the model might be though.

  2. No matter where it came from, Gaia, your choice of photos for all of your posts is brilliant and thoughtful. I'm so envious of your talent! I wish my analytical brain could be a smidgeon as creative.

  3. Found it here also as I have a few links saved for these old ads (no affiliation):

  4. This is a great roundup, thanks for all the great advice!

  5. i'm glad you found my comment amusing - seriously though, once you see it you can't un-see it!!
