Stila's New Step Out and Shine Color Collection and Clutch

While I was out doing a little post-birthday shopping, I found myself at the Stila display in Sephora. I was admiring the new Step Out and Shine Color Collection and Clutch when I realized something; it features a new lip and cheek stain. You all know I’m obsessed with stains, right?

The Stila Step Out and Shine Color Collection and Clutch features a more than generous trial size of the upcoming Pomegranate Crush Lip and Cheek Stain, the Montmartre Eye Shadow Quad Palette, a Convertible Color in Orchid, a mini All Over Shimmer Luminizer and a sample of their mascara.

I compared swatches of the Cherry Crush Lip and Cheek Stain with the new Pomegranate stain and I’m not sure that I will pick it up even though the stain obsession may nag at me to. The new shade has more blue undertones to it and I tend to go for red or mauve-ish stains. This one is almost like magenta. Will you be picking this up?

Shop Pink: Elizabeth Hurley High Gloss Lip Color Collection

Out of all of the companies working to raise awareness during the past month, Estee Lauder deserves a huge amount of praise for their efforts. They have so many products from their various companies benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They are also donating $500,000 from the sale of their Pink Ribbon Collection products. This is just one of those products.

Estee Lauder Elizabeth Hurley High Gloss Lip Color Collection It may be sold out online but the Estee Lauder Elizabeth Hurley High Gloss Lip Color Collection is beyond cute and still available in stores. For $16, it features Elizabeth Hurley’s favorite Pearl, Pink (limited edition shade) and Rose High Gloss shades in a limited edition Pink Ribbon case. I love this gloss! It’s not sticky, glides on and it smells divine. You’ll love the vanilla-fig scent as soon as you try it!

You can find other products in the Pink Ribbon collection here including a pink ribbon pin you can wear all year round. The Beautiful Eau de Parfum Spray in the 2.5 fl. oz. size and Perfectionist CP+ Wrinkle Lifting Serum in the 1.7 fl. oz size are also part of the campaign this month.

Status of Our Total Beauty Total Cure Giveaway

Total Beauty Total Cure So remember when I said our Total Beauty Total Cure giveaway was going to be on the 8th? Well the wifi access in Paris threw that out the window and since I’ve been back from Paris, I’ve been sick and dealing with food poisoning so it hasn’t been a great October (excluding the trip!) for me even though I turn 30 today.

To give you an update on our giveaway for the Total Beauty Total Cure campaign, we’ll now be giving away a prize worth $645 this weekend! Stay tuned for more information on how to win the Clarisonic Yours and Mine set and gorgeous pink bag from My Flat in London.

Also, we got a little something planned for next week to help out with fundraising but we’ll talk more about that as we get closer to Monday! 🙂 For now, I’m going to take it easy, maybe get a mani/pedi and enjoy my birthday.

Lancome's Oscillation Mascara Available NOW

Remember the mascara that had everyone buzzing? Today Lancome is officially launching their newest mascara Oscillation online as well as at their counters and boutiques.

Lancome Oscillation Mascara This mascara has so much buzz behind it, no pun intended, that the waiting list for it has hit the 21,000 mark. Can you believe that? With that said, Lancome wants you to know a few things about this product so you can get the great results this new mascara can deliver:

  • The key to great results with Oscillation is a certain application technique. Apply in slow, straight and steady strokes.
  • Don’t zig-zag and don’t wiggle!
  • Don’t overpump the wand. There’s plenty of product on there for multiple coats.
  • If at first you don’t succeed…don’t give up! Oscillation takes a few tries to get the hang of it.
  • Oscillation is great for the lower lashes, so don’t forget to apply there.

Once you get your application method down, there are a few tricks you can try. Apply and then go back and re-apply to the tips alone. You can get amazing length. Or try this tip that a celebrity makeup artist shared with us: put the wand right at the base of the lashes, activate the vibrating action and hold in place for a few seconds. Then slowly sweep to the tips of the lashes. It gives you beautiful thickness at the base and lots of oomph.

If you pick up Oscillation, let us know what you think!
