My big trip to Sephora should be happening on Saturday, so I’ll have updates soon after that! I am going there to check out the Tarina Tarantino makeup collection and try on a few goodies while I am there.
New for Spring 2010!
MAC ‘Viva Glam VII’ Lipstick ($14 each @ Nordstrom / Macy’s / MAC Pro Stores)
This is the highly anticipated collection of Viva Glam lipstick from MAC.. starring the shock-popstar Lady GaGa and 80s pop legend, Cyndi Lauper. Although I am not a GaGa fan, I am a super-fan of the Viva Glam GaGa lustre formula light blue / pink lipstick color, which has been a signature color of mine for years (I wear the matte YSL version, and NYX). The Viva Glam Cyndi is a lustre formula shade of a light reddish coral.. this is also a must-have! Do not forget that every cent raised through the sales of Viva Glam lipstick go to the MAC AIDS Fund to help support the fight against AIDS / HIV. A hot lipstick shade with a good cause, it can’t get better than that!
Givenchy Le Prisme Blush Powder Blush
This is a four-color blush palette with gorgeous high-pigmented shades that you can use all together or one shade at a time. This product allows you to customize your color! I am loving the It-Girl Purple, and since this is a Sephora-only product, I am going to defs test this out on Saturday!
Available in the following colors:
– Aficionado Peach
– It-Girl Purple
– In Vogue Orange
– Fashionista Brown (pictured)
Kim Kardashian fragrance (starting at $16)
Ok, so I want to see what all the “stink” is about. Since I hear that Kim stole her fragrance logo from a jewelry company logo, and that she probably stole her fragance scent from J. Lo (that is just my joke, not a rumor!) I gotta see what the fuss is about and if this product actually delivers.
Laura Mercier Secret Finish Mattifying Gel($27 @ Sephora) and the
Laura Mercier Smooth Focus Pressed Setting Powder – Shine Control ($32 @ Sephora)
I have oily skin and the summer months ahead only mean trouble for sebum control! I am always trying new things, so this might be just what I am looking for. This Secret Finish Mattifying Gel is a shine-controlling liquid-gel formula that you can use to touch-up your shiny areas through the day, you can even dab this over makeup! The current mattifyer that I use by Clarins (in a little red pot) breaks my skin out within an hour. I really want to give this one a try! Along with that, there is the Smooth Focus Pressed Setting Powder for shine control, another product that looks excellent for oily skin!
Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Cream Blush ($25 @ Sephora for .33 oz)
Want a healthy and lasting glow? Well, this new cream blush in a pump looks awesome! The blush combines mattifying & reflecting powders to create a soft-focus glow.
Can’t wait for my mall trip! I hope I don’t spend too much.. my taxes are coming back soon, so we will see!
