This week has brought some changes to our little group of bloggers, some temporary while others are permanent. We are delighted to have Karla Sugar, the undisputed Queen Of Swatches, join us, magical arm and all. Seriously, if I try more than a handful of colors on one arm there's smudging, chaos and stained cats, while Karla regularly manages to keep a full collection look pristine and appealing.
Other than that, it's summer. Our roundup this week definitely reflects it. Have a look:
Gouldylox Reviews learned a lesson about self-tanners. I'm mortally afraid of them and there's a good reason.
BeautyXposé is doing a giveaway of Hawaiian Tropic Shimmer Effect. If that doesn't scream of summer I don't know what does.
Best Things In Beauty has a story to tell about her swatches of the Precious, Lumières Byzantines de Chanel Palette.
Product Girl shows us another summer essential, Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liners.
Fab Over Forty was all bronzed up with Lancome's newest Summer 2011 Collection, Bronze Azure.
Karla Sugar swatches the new glosses by Giorgio Armani Beauty called Gloss d'Armani. How do they compare to the old formula?
Diva Debbi is once again bracer than me and used the new Brazilian Peel. See how she says it compares to others.
Daly Beauty loves the scent of jasmine and shares with us some of her favorite fragrances that contain the beautiful scent.
And even more:
Roxana has a beautiful look book, worthy of her Illuminated Perfumes.
Some interesting Dior and LVMH news on Grain de Musc.
Swatches of Becca's Halcyon Days Palette on Lipstick Luvvies.
PoseyLass has me on the edge of my seat anxious to get my hands on some upcoming Chanel items. Must see.
Enjoy your weekend, rain or shine!
