Those of us in North America have missed a spectacular lunar eclipse this week. The moon turned red in a total eclipse (why am I humming that Bonnie Tyler song? should I be embarrassed that I still remember the lyrics? ) that lasted 100 minutes. The photos online look amazing (search for the ones taken in Jerusalem if you haven't seen them yet) and definitely eclipse (pun totally intended) the other photos that made the news this week. But let's forget about that former congressman and his junk. Instead, let's look at some pretties:
The Beauty Look Book took a short vacation break to show us Dior's limited-edition Les Rouge.
Best Things in Beauty shares my love of Le Métier de Beauté's new Écumes D’or Kaleidoscope Lip Kit.

Daly Beauty thinks the pale pink beauty of Chanel Jade Rose Nail Polish is just peachy.
More good stuff:

This one is from the previous week, but it's worth going back to see the gorgeous Chantecaille bronzer on Orange 2LA.
Mona di Orio fans would want to read this review of her new Vanille & Oud on La Gardenia Nell'Occhiello.

What is this vacation thing so many are speaking about? If you're taking one, have a wonderful time. We're still going to be here when you're back (and scold you about sunscreen).
