Here are some pics of the Novel Twist collection, which you can pre-order rign now on the Nordstrom site. They’ll start shipping out on July 20th. I want the two beauty powders! Cute, yah?
Iâ€™m back from vacation! Iâ€™m still jet lagged and exhausted but Iâ€™m glad to be home in one piece. The hubby and I did a ton of fun stuff during our visit to Hawaii. This visit was all about outdoor fun in the sun. We snorkeled at Sharkâ€™s Cove, took surf lessons and swam with dolphins. We were pretty busy every day of the week, so even though I brought my usual travel makeup I only had time (and energy) to put on a few essentials. Here are the products I used that stood up to the heat and humidity and didnâ€™t require lot of effort:
Biotherm Forget It Concealer
Being relaxed and tan on vacation is the ultimate under eye dark circle remover, but sometimes a girl needs a little help. I love this stuff because I donâ€™t have to use a lot of it (just the tiniest drop) yet it covers thoroughly and is easy to apply with or without a brush. It doesnâ€™t feel heavy or cakey and once I put it on it barely budges. I have this in the color â€œ30.â€ The only drawback is the color selection â€“ there are only three shades to choose from. $14.00 for a tube. [Continue reading…]
I am the first person to admit that I am very color-shy when it comes to makeup, so when MAC’s C Shock came out I wasn’t too into it. Although I really still can’t see these colors on myself, I am going to officially change my tune. I went to the website today and saw these superhot pics of Eve rockin’ the C Shock collection. Surprisingly, my fave looks were the ones with bright green and blue eyeshadow, lol. Love it!
Bang on Blue
If you don’t fear color then check out the MAC C Shock collection. I am not feeling the lipstick and eye shadow colors. There are great bright blues and greens and pinks, but I’d rather see the colors on clothes and accessories rather than makeup. I think I’m going to have to pass.
Despite my fear of the bold brights of the C Shock lipsticks and eye shadows, I have to say the Lipgelees in the collection that look really pretty. There are four:
She-Boom!, A creamy magenta (Cream)
Lil’ Sizzler, A metallic peach with pink and white pearl (Frost)
Sugar Shock, Sheer red berry (Cream)
Mega, Soft metallic lavender with silver sparkle (Frost)
Are you loving this collection? Let me know how/if/when you wear these colors. Do you wear them to work, or only for play? I’m curious to know where and when you can get away with wearing blue lipstick!
The count down is on, I leave for Hawaii in *ten* days. I can’t wait to hang with the family and hang at the beach. Are you going on vacation this summer? I hope so!
Hope your Wednesday is going smoothly and that you have plenty of reasons to smile today.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

I got this during my Holiday 2006 MAC frenzy. I havenâ€™t been able to use it until now because the â€œDarkâ€ shade was too dark for my non-tanned skin color. Now that Iâ€™ve got a lilâ€™ bit of color itâ€™s the perfect shade for tanned skin.
Iâ€™m not going to lie â€“ it hurt me to pay the $45.00 for this. I may be a cheapo but Iâ€™m also a sucker for powder. I figured with the refill (which is included) it would be like buying two powders for about $22.00, which is the normal amount Iâ€™d pay for a high-end department store powder. [Continue reading…]
