Weekend Reads: Beauty Beat 12/11

Happy Saturday everyone! Have the malls gotten a little too crazy for you? I can say that’s affirmative for me — I just got back from doing some Christmas shopping, and I think I spent more time in traffic than I did in the store. So, let’s enjoy some beauty shopping from home and also see what the beauty gals have tried, tested and recommended for you this week.

Meet Alex Chantecaille at Best Things in Beauty and find out what’s new coming in over the next few months. The next blockbuster palette will feature sea turtles and Charlestongirl will be the hare, not the turtle, in ordering it!

We often wonder if ‘at-home’ skin care treatments really work. Kelly from Gouldylox Reviews shares with us her experience using the Personal Microderm kit and if the results are professional looking. It may leave you skipping your next trip to the dermatologist.

Holiday beauty collections are about the product and the packaging. Gaia from The Non-Blonde shows us one of her favorites of the season with the Clarins Baracco Eyeshadow Trio. This beauty is definitely worth a look!

More of the holiday beauty collections continue with Kari at Fab Over Forty. This week she shows us the lipstick from the L’Wren Scott for Lancome Holiday Collection. Is this a shade that you think is holiday-worthy?

Carla posted a contest on Product Girl this week, and if she wins you could win big too! Check out her Make Up For Ever’s Lips to Love contest and vote. If we take home the most votes, we’ll give away 10 train cases with Make Up For Ever beauty inside!

Are you a fan of Edward Bess lipsticks and glosses? Well, you can’t help but fall in love with his newest set of 3 lipstick and 3 lipgloss collections that Sabrina from The Beauty Look Book shares with us. The shades are lovely and swatches are spot on!

Debbi has some tried and true products that she’s tested recently over at DivaDebbi. She shares with us this week a foundation she loves, a mascara she likes and a shampoo and conditioner that, well, sadly disappoint.

Do you have several holiday parties to attend, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on all new clothes? Anne from BeautyXposé shows us a new affordable way to wear designer clothes to all those parties!

Amy from Café Makeup has us thinking Spring! It may be cold outside, but the new Chanel Eyeshadow Collection Côte D’Azur Promesse gives us thoughts of warm sun, the crisp, sparkling ocean and sandy beaches.

Speaking of the beach, Jane from Daly Beauty experimented with Tigi Foxy Curls Contour Cream to give her hair that beachy beautiful look. She shares with us her results and images of her gorgeous beach hair!
