I love the Disney Store as much (or more) than my kids, so excited there are fun new products for me! The Disney store is launching their new fragrance line with everything from hand lotion to room spray. There will be 3 collections Imagination, Pixie Dust and Magic. I was lucky enough to try the room spray and candle from the new Imagination line.

First off for the price the products are huge my room spray bottle is 3.4fl oz and I have been using it for a week and it still looks full. The fragrances are great, I really love the Imagination line its a woody fresh scent that is perfect for freshening up my house from mystery scents of kids. I love the bottle they are very clean and classic with a touch of whimsy. Great new line from Disney, these would make a great hostess gift for events you are attending this summer.

Disney Store Fragrance Collection

Don’t we all need to find more ways to relax? As a working mom, I find a great way to relax after a hard day of work is with my Disney Store Imagination candle. This week, the first scent in a new line of exclusive, high-end fragrance products is arriving in Disney Stores nationwide.

The premium candles let you add a touch of Disney magic to your home, are perfect for the entryway or bathroom and are ideal for lighting when you want to relax with the warm glow of candlelight and beautiful scents. To accompany them, Disney Store offers delicious smelling room sprays, lotions and liquid hand soaps. The products are elegant and classic—fun and appropriate for both a family bathroom or guest powder room—they smell wonderful and look beautiful too.

Inspired by Disney’s most timeless and beloved characters and stories, the scents were created in conjunction with some of the world’s leading fragrance houses, perfumers and an award-winning design team. Each promises to capture the Disney magic in a new way.

Three new fragrances will be released throughout the year starting with Imagination at the end of May followed by Magic in July and ending with Pixie Dust in the fall. We are hoping you can let your readers know about these new collections.

The first scent Imagination is the signature fragrance used throughout the newly designed Disney Store and is described as an enchanted forest of sequoia trees, cool moss and green leaves. Magic, out in July, has notes of ocean spray, mint and chocolate. Pixie Dust has citrus and candy fruit scents blended with the scent of summer rain and captures all the fun of Tinker Bell.

SOMEDAY by JUSTIN BIEBER

Ugh, okay maybe I’m just old and cynical but I feel like the Justin Bieber fragrance is over marketing at its worst. They will slap Justin’s name on anything they think teenagers will buy.  What do you think?
SOMEDAY by JUSTIN BIEBER is more than just a perfume: it’s a fragrance full of the energy, passion, and confidence that pushes him to the top of the charts. It is a personal gift straight from his heart, a scent that drives him wild and makes the girls who wear it totally irresistible. So go beyond the music and journey deep into a world of possibilities—into the world of Justin Bieber.

This fragrance’s glass bottle is fresh yet flirty, anything but ordinary, and topped with a burst of blooming hearts. A crystal-encrusted, heart-shaped charm can be removed and attached to a keychain or zipper pull—so you can be close to Justin’s heart wherever you go.

Notes:
Mandarin, Juicy Pear, Wild Berries, Jasmine, Creamy Florals, Vanilla, Soft Musks.
Style:
Playful. Fresh. Flirty.

In stores early July.

Jemma Kidd Makeup School: Beach Beauty

I love the Jemma Kidd line, very high quality makeup and beautiful color combinations.

Looking good at the beach can seem a challenging proposition…especially at the beginning of the summer. International make-up artist and award winning product designer Jemma Kidd offers tips for the beach-bound to feel confident and ready for the summer months ahead.

To get started, “Mix a little body shimmer into sunscreen to prevent skin from looking dull, and use make-up to define the eyes and add a healthy glow.”

For a day at the beach:

Eyes: Line the upper lash line with dark brown pencil for definition. Apply a shimmery peach eye shadow from the upper lash line to the socket crease. Add a little shimmer under the lower lash line using a gold eyeliner pencil. Apply dark brown waterproof mascara. (Try: Jemma Kidd Make Up School Define Stayput Eyeliner in Mahogany and Vintage Gold, Eye Essentials Shimmer Shadow in Peachie, and Lasting Tint: Semi Permanent, Waterproof Lash Colour in Brown)

Lips: Use a hydrating lip balm with a nude shimmering finish and high SPF to protect lips and keep them feeling moist despite sea spray and sun. Nude/brown tones are more flattering with a tan than red. (Try: Jemma Kidd Make Up School Ultimate Lip Care Protect & Shimmer SPF 12 in Nude)

Face: Apply sunscreen and layer sheer tinted moisturizer on top, blending it well. Pat on concealer as needed to cover blemishes or redness. Bring a natural flush to your cheeks by blending in pink cheek stain, which is water-resistant and will last longer than cream blush. If you need it, blend a little gold-toned highlighter or cream bronzer onto the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, chin and temples. (Try: Jemma Kidd Make Up School Mineral Skin Nourishing Tint SPF 20, Rosy Glow Lip & Cheek Tint, and Dual Illuminator Crème Highlighter & Shimmer Dust in Champagne)

From beach to bar:

Eyes: Draw along the upper and lower lash line with black eyeliner pencil. Apply bronze crème eye shadow over the lid and layer with bronze metallic pigment. Apply black mascara to define and thicken the lashes. (Try: Jemma Kidd Make Up School Define Stayput Eyeliner in Pitch, Crushed Jewel Crème Duo in Bronzite, and Lash Xtension Mascara)

Lips: Moisturize with nude lip balm and add a layer of non-sticky nude or soft pink lipgloss. (Try: Jemma Kidd Make Up School Hi-Shine Silk Touch Lipgloss in Shell)

Face: Apply a tinted moisturizer and concealer as needed, then lightly dust with a little translucent powder before sweeping a little bronzer over the cheekbones and temples. (Try: Jemma Kidd Make Up School Mineral Skin Nourishing Tint SPF 20, and Bronze Perfection Natural Skin)
