It's been hectic around here with family visiting, including my two year old niece who's a fashionista in the making. Right now she's still more interested in the Bronx Zoo than in Bergdorf Goodman, but I have very high hopes for the future. I can't wait till she and my other niece (a blonde, by the way) are old enough to read beauty blogs and go exploring the 3Bs (Bergdorf, Barneys and Bendel). For now, let's take a tour through the best the beauty blogsphere had to offer this week:
Chanel is a magic word for many of us, including Kari who saw the Inimitable Intense display of new Chanel eye shadows and mascaras. Visit Fab over Forty and see if there's a trip to a Chanel counter in your immediate future. There's definitely one in mine, but what else is new?
Between the two of us, Sabrina of The Beauty Look Book and I probably have the entire Edward Bess collection. Here's her Compact Rouge reviews and photos. I had my own Edward Bess post this week- one of his beautiful lipsticks.
Charlestongirl is already in the holiday spirit, thanks to Shiseido. The Makeup 2010 Holiday Collection Essential Elegance Palette, created by Dick Page, left her gushing at Best Things in Beauty. All I can say is: Want. Just look at that purple cream eyeliner in this set. Charlstongirl also recommends checking the Luminizing Eye Shadow Trios. She's right, of course. I just reviewed Strata. In fact, I'm wearing it right now.
At BeautyXposé, it was all about REN Replenishing Treatment Mists (and darling flats for fall). Find out why Pamela has been obsessed, spritzing with glee.
Speaking of spritzing, I reviewed the newest perfume in the By Kilian line, Love And Tears. It's a must-sniff for jasmine lovers, and even those who are suspicious of this note (like me), might find it surprisingly lovely.
Let's not forget our hands. Laurie at Product Girl gave us a peek at Essie’s Fall 2010 collection, nail colors to complement the season’s fashion trends. I can tell you they're absolutely gorgeous. In fact, I'm going to wear Merino Cool this weekend.
While we're on the subject of hands, Marcia and Lisa featured an interview with Ellen Sirot, a world-famous hand model (all of a sudden I'm thinking about George Costanza...). If you visit Beauty Info Zone Blog, you'll find a special discount on Ellen's Hand Perfection products.
Victoria Stiles worked on a Washingtonian Magazine photo shoot of DC's style setters and has a behind the scenes preview video. Very cool.
And just for fun, here's Joey's Things I've Learned From Beauty Blogging list on The Eyes Have It. I could have written just about each and every one of these items.
Have a beautiful weekend!
