New in Beauty

What’s shakin’, ladies? This is rather useless trivia, but I just realized that today is the third of five March hump days. 🙂 Hope you have a great one. I’m just chugging along.

    Orange Sapphire smells so GOOD. My husband got me a little bottle of the lotion before the whole line was available and I’ve almost completely used it up.

    I have a coupon for BBW that isn’t good until Monday and it’s KILLING me!

  2. lexi says:

    Hmmm….interesting! The new Chanel formula comes out right at the time I need new foundation – promises of evening skintone, even?

    Color me there!

    I hate to say this but my Shiseido curler has stopped working for me …. that Laura Mercier one is interesting. Working on the brow trend — im also intrigued by the Smashbox The Brow Tech To Go Pencil. Hmmm…

    If things work out, ive a doctor’s appt for my annual allergy shot later … I might pop over the mall to check out those things plus the BBW Orange Sapphire scent and the VS free tote bag for $21 purchase of their new line. 😀

      I’ve never tried the Shiseido one… I’m devoted to my Shu Uemura curler. 🙂

      OOOh girl, you just reminded me that I need to call the doc’s to get my allergy meds situation worked out. There’s a LOT of sneeze-worthly plant life up here.

      What are you allergic to? When spring hits I’m pretty much allergic to everything.

      • NINA says:

        Same as you — every single thing that grows or flies or flutters during Spring is my foresworn enemy!!!

        On regular days its dust, pollen and strong scents – thats why im very careful about what scents I use too.

        The Shiseido was awesome until … one day … it just wasnt. Sad. But true.

        Im prolly gonna leave work 330ish. The shot is like a cure-all. Ill be fine just in time for the weekend – yay!!!

        • Karen says:

          Have you ever tried the Shu Uemura one? I swear it’s the bees knees.

          • Nina says:

            Now I will LOL … picked one up @ Sephora after the docs appt!

            I also got 2 lippies from MAC — Crosswires and Cravings. I was going to get one of the Liberty of London ones but they were out.

            Ive been nawty! 😀

    The Laura Mercier eyelash curler looks like the one I have from Sephora @ $14 which I love, btw.


    Wet N Wild has a similar design eyelash curler and it’s just under $2.

    Oo, got a sample bottle of the Orange Sapphire and I did not like. It was sharp and spicy (not in a good way) and reminded me of orange cleaner. Just my opinion and your mileage may vary. :0)
    For an orange scent that is out of this world, I like Pacifica’s Tuscan Blood Orange. It’s available from Sephora and it’s not too much more expensive than the B&B stuff.

    • Karen says:

      Interesting! I hope it works with my chemistry. Spicy’s more of a fall thing for me so I was hoping for something crisp and fresh.

      Pacifica seems to have lots of interesting scents, yah?

      • Lisa S. says:

        I’m planning on going on a Pacifica binge, the next time I make it to St Louis. (Boo, no Sephora where I live, I have to travel two hours to get to
        a major city) I’m really intrigued by how luscious all their scents sound. But the Tuscan Blood Orange is the only one I’ve tried so far.

  6. Wendy says:

    The Philosophy Apricots and Cream Spritz is amazing!! I sprayed it on my body and was not sure about it at first. But after it soaked in it smelled so fresh and yummy!!

  7. Rica says:

    I just wanna say… ENTERED… haha didn’t know about the Benefit contest. Thanks for informing us!

    Also, I’m kind of skeptical about Orange Sapphire though… I’m picky with my orange. I shall swing by the mall and give it a little sniff.

    Oh, and I cansee myself getting a lot of use out of the Clinique palette, but I have never tried the Clinique eyeshadows before. Maybe I should dig out my gift-with-purchase sample eyeshadows to test it out. What do you think about Clinique eyeshadowsKaren?
    .-= Rica’s last blog post… Icy Look Book – page 1 =-.

    • Karen says:

      I like them. They were my first eyeshadows when I started wearing makeup, so I have a lot of emotional ties to the line. 🙂

      In terms of performance, they’re not as pigmented as other shadows, but I think that’s okay… if you’re a beginner they’re much more forgiving and easier to use.

  8. Steph B says:

    I have a Sephora eyelash curler just like that one. It is great for travel. I really like the open sides — minimizes chances to pinch that delicate skin.

  9. Wendy says:

    It is more of a sweet scent. ( the philosophy rep said that shower gel and lotion will follow soon.)

  10. Denise says:

    Karen, the Mango Mandarin scent at BBW is really nice and smells like citrus. I have the shower gel and I love it. Clinique has a set of three perfumes only available at Christmas time they are Happy, a hint of citrus and a hint of flowers. I love the hint of citrus one, that’s the one I use the most. It helps energize me in the morning. 🙂
