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.

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)

I am so in love with this kit I’m relatively new to the bareMinerals line but the more I try the more I wonder WHAT THE HECK DID I WAIT FOR!? The Love and Happiness collection celebrates the 35th birthday of bareMinerals and dare I say I love it more than cupcakes?

The whole collection creates such a beautiful and fresh look but there are a few standouts. First off the Big and Bright Eyeliner in Oz, truly the most beautiful emerald green it smooths on so easy and looks amazing. There is even a little smudge sponge hidden in the end of the eyeliner, genius! The primer is such a great peachy shimmer and feels so light and smooth on my eyes definitely a new beauty staple. Finally the Best Friend Lip Balm in Raspberry is heaven in a tube feels great and is the perfect shade of berry.

Love B& B Eyeliner in OZ!

Tickled Pink: OPI’s Nice Stems Nail Polish Collection

OPI’s new Nice Stems! nail polish collection has us tickled pink. The cult nail brand has blended four floral-inspired lacquers that beg to be painted on fingers and toes.

Can’t you just see one of these pink shades peeking out of your favorite pair of nude sandals?

“These vibrant, feminine hues complement ’60s ladylike fashions, ’70s glam looks, and bold color-blocking, which are the season’s staples,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI executive vice president and artistic director. “The Nice Stems! collection also offers an interesting contrast and feminine accent to the punk and biker looks on the runways.”

The collection includes: Play the Peonies, a soft-pink; Come to Poppy, a shimmering coral-pink; Be a Dahlia Won’t You, a fabulous fuchsia; and I Lily Love You, a sparkling pink.

To instantly bright up your mani or pedi, Weiss-Fischmann suggests layering on I Lily Love You to achieve a shimmering 3-dimensional effect.

“I Lily Love You is a glitter coat that can be layered over any of the other three shades to add a bright sparkle; or, it can be worn on its own for a subtle tint of pink with strands of glitter,” she says.

The Nice Stems! nail polish collection ($8.50) will be available June 2011 Dillard’s, Regis and ULTA.
