My beauty routine is officially in fall/winter weather mode, which means slathering, protecting and moisturizing within an inch of my life. So far it's working, including facing some serious wind on a day trip up north this weekend. Of course, all of us are on the lookout for more items to test and here's the latest crop:
This one is for germaphobes among us: Kari from Fab Over Forty found an organic hand sanitizer that works without drying out your skin.
I haven't bought anything from Stila in ages, but Charlstongirl from Best Things in Beauty is very happy with the new 24kt Gloss, so it looks like this one is a real winner.
Sabrina from The Beauty Look Book has photos, swatches and a great insight into the new Dolce & Gabbana Ethereal Beauty Collection. In this case she tried it all so I don't have to.
Does your skin when you get freak out when you're out of your normal routine? Mine sometimes does and then I spend a week or so doing restoration work. Laurie from Product Girl tried Vorte Vu Au Revoir Trouble Spot Treatment. See if it worked for her.
Surfing beauty websites can be a learning experience. Kelly from Gouldylox Reviews tested Wen Re-Moist Hydrating Hair Mask after seeing Wen on QVC. See what she thinks about the results.
Kristin from BeautyXposé shows us some fun nail polishes for fall to give you the "it" factor. I can never resist nail polish. It's a sickness, really.
Debbi from DivaDebbi has a "Don't sweat the small stuff" mantra. I wish I could adopt this attitude. Not sweating, however, means cellulite . See if Avon Anew's Cellulite Slimming Treatment worked for her.
Jane from Daly Beauty has a wonderful interview with fashion designer, Rachel Sin. See what her beauty must-haves are in this insightful interview.
Trish from Scent Hive has a review and a giveaway of Osmanthus Oolong from indie natural house Providence Perfumer Co.
Manolo the shoe blogger has added a beauty blog to the Manolosphere, written by Glinda. It definitely started out with a bang.
Here on the Non-Blonde, I was not impressed with Lancome's eye primer, Put some color in my cheeks with Burberry Warm Glow bronzer, brought you a smoky eye alternative from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics and shared with you a favorite Ava Luxe perfume, No. 23. Oh, and there was also a new YSL lipstick among lots of other good stuff.
Happy week! Stay warm and beautiful.
