Christmas comes twice this year!

 

My mailman is my new best friend he just brought me two of the brand spanking new Bare Escentuals eyeshadows. I have been so excited since I heard about these and let me tell you they live up to my expectations. All the greatness of the original but now in a solid for beauty addicts like myself who can’t seem to master loose powder without fallout.

The pigment is amazing and the shadow just glides on  there is a very smoothing element to the shadow that feels great. I love the color combos and can’t wait to try more. Check for these to be available in store and online in October the 2.0 shadow will retail for $20 and the 4.0 shadow will be $40.

My favorite of the two pallets has to be The Enlightenment. They look a little like your average old  colors  but once on your eyes bazinga gorgeous rust and copper sparkles emerge that blend with the luminescent sand.

Versace launching a new fragrance – Yellow Diamond

Check out Versace’s latest fragrance, Yellow Diamond! The fresh, floral Yellow Diamond is in an adorned demstone style bottle top and is the latest crystal themed fragrance in the fashion house.

Inspired by her own yellow diamond ring (of course), Donatella Versace told WWD about the concept. “The jewel has always stimulated a feeling of brightness, sensuality and energy, and this is what I set out to capture in this new glamorous, charming and feminine floral fragrance.”

Australian model Abbey Lee Kershaw will star in the ad campaign, shot by Mario Testino in Paris. You won’t be able to miss it when it hits the beauty counters this autumn. Take a look below to see more of our favourite stand-out perfume bottles.

Can’t wait to smell it!!
