I dearly hope everyone had a better week than mine. This flu thing has made me lose several days in a haze of drowsiness and snot and I'm still coughing up a storm (as do The Blond and many of his co-workers and clients. I wonder if its all my fault). I have less energy than Buffy (my 21 lbs cat, not the Vampire Slayer) and that should say something. But this dreary month is nearly over, today's rain has finally cleared the deck from the remaining snow (1/3 of the yard is still covered but not for long) and this Sunday is the Oscars. Pretty gowns and Colin Firth, what's better than that?
And, we have many beauty goodies to share and occupy us until James Franco sings:
The quest for finding the perfect foundation never ends. Really. Tim Quinn, Giorgio Armani makeup artist to the stars, discussed this with Kari. You can read all about it at Fab over Forty.
Are you curious about La Prairie? I know I was (the result is a bunch of reviews of La Prairie items coming soon to this blog). Charlestongirl got a preview of La Prairie's summer makeup collection at a Neiman Marcus party. Check out Best Things in Beauty to see what's coming.
The new NARS Illuminators shades are getting a lot of blogger attention. I have yet to do anything with my samples, but Amy's impressions at Café Makeup are a good reason to get on with it.

An interesting feature on Yesterday's Perfume about vintage perfume bottles and their modern copycats, including the possible influence for Katy Perry's Purr cat bottle.
Makeup Magpie brings us photos and review of Bobbi Brown's Rich Lip Color. There's also some Mad Men musing and vintage photos to make things interesting. I promise to post my own review of the lipstick in the coming week, I just need more quality time playing with it.
Stay happy and beautiful!
