Weekly Roundup: January 29th, 2011
Had a lovely lunch and shopping excursion with one of my college BFFs today. There's nothing like a day of good food, window shopping and girl talk to brighten one's mood :) We both agreed these days we're more inspired by bloggers as our go-to source for what's new in the fashion and beauty world. She gave me a scrumptious box of gorgeous macaroons which I am enjoying right now while reading through J.Crew's latest catalog and catching up on this week's roundup picks.
(In case anyone is wondering, on the nails: Chanel Fantastic with Lancome's new spring glitter nail polish on top. I didn't buy the Lancome although it was fun to try out today.)
Giorgio Armani Beauty's Eyes to Kill Mascara is my holy grail of mascaras. I finally got around to trying the new Excess formula and wrote an article comparing the two. Read my review linked here and stay tuned for my HG of HGs list soon!
Kari at Fab over Forty isn't the only one who has re-discovered French skin care by Orlane. Find out why she likes it. Kari says it's expensive, but it works.
Gaia hooked us with her feature about Sisley's Phyto Lip Shine. Read The Non-Blonde to see why she considers it true luxury.
Three Custom Color's Sweetest Thing Palette is the talk of Twitter. Carla at Product Girl will tell you why.
Kelly showed us Benefit's Bella Bomba Blush. Does the ultimate "peach blush lover" like this pink blush? You can find out at Gouldylox Reviews.
Is your budget suffering? No prob - you can still buy new beauty products! Amy has eye shadow recommendations from Wet 'n Wild for you at Café Makeup.
Debbi wants to make sure you get the most for your drugstore dollars. Find out why you should sign up for the CVS ExtraCare Beauty Club at DivaDebbi.
While you are at the drugstore, check out Olay's skin care. If you haven't tried it yet, Jane has some tips for you at Daly Beauty.
Charlestongirl loves cream blush. YSL's popular Créme de Blush shades, some of which were re-launched for Spring 2011, earned her praise. See her shade selection at Best Things in Beauty.
On the fashion front, last week we told you about Part 1 of Jennifer's facts about tights and pantyhose. You need to check in at BeautyXposé to read Part 2.
