We had a couple of days here to pretend spring was actually here. It felt marvelous- going out of the house without a coat- Imagine that! Of course, the universe is now busy reminding us what February is all about (it's snowing as we speak). But right now I don't mind too much. I have the new Le Metier de Beaute Smoldering Embarkment Kaleidoscope as my new plaything and it's keeping me happy. My blogging friends all seem to have find new loves and ideas this week. Here's what they've been doing:
Nicole Kidman seems to have been getting her groove back lately. Her red carper appearances have been amazing. Kari from Fab Over Forty has the details on Nicole Kidman and her Grammys beauty look by Carol Shaw and LORAC cosmetics.
I saw the new Clé de Peau colors earlier this week and while I couldn't find anything for myself I instantly knew Charlestongirl from Best Things In Beauty was going to be smitten with La Beauté Éblouissante Collection for Spring 2011. The pastel looks for the eyes and brilliant, shiny lips, the collection is right up her alley. I'm jealous but my charge cards are relieved.
Everyone is talking about the turtles lately. Chantecaille's latest offering, Sea Turtle Palette is another great achievement in presentation. Amy from Café Makeup has the best photos, as always.
Good brushes are the key to good makeup application. They can make all the difference in product performance and the way it looks on skin. Sabrina from The Beauty Look Book shares with us her must-have eye brushes. It's a must-read.
When it comes to Butter London, the color I'm waiting for is No More Waity, Katie, their tribute to the royal bride-to-be (yes, I pre-ordered). Carla at Product Girl has the scoop on Butter London's spring collection, straight from Nonie Creme herself, the brand's creative director.
Kelly at Gouldylox Reviews reviewed a few pieces of the skincare line By Nieves. This line was given the accolades of Best Local Skincare Line by the SF Weekly. Sounds good.
As we're waiting Chanel's newest line of lipsticks called Rouge Coco Shine, Jane from Daly Beauty got her hands on the first release of this line. See what she thinks of the shade Boy.
Chelsea from BeautyXposé shares her experience with the new Maybelline Fit Me line.
We've all been there- trying to replace an old favorite products that's no longer with us. Debbi of DivaDebbi was on a hunt for a blush. Read about her dilemma and what she ended up finding at Sephora during her hunt.
Wherever you are, stay happy and beautiful this weekend.
