Random Acts of Beauty, December 2, 2011: One Girl. 24 Hours.

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup

How much beauty can one girl spot over the course of 24 hours?

The answer: a lot. 🙂

Like interesting typography that feeds my inner word nerd while it tickles my eyeballs.

December 1, 5:18 p.m. — I’m taking pictures of Benefit’s new boxed blush, but it’s slow going because I’m distracted by the interesting fonts on the box. The blush is called Hervana, a shimmery, peachy pinkish berry ($28).

Hervana doesn’t officially hit counters and stores until January, but if you’re not one for waitin’, set Siri to remind you on Monday, December 5, that Hervana will be available for early sale, one day only, at Benefit online.

December 1, 9:36 p.m. — I’m sitting on the couch and flipping through the DVR menu with the remote… I open the folder for Pop-Up Video to see if any new shows have been recorded (and they have!).

There’s only episode (shoot!), but it’s dedicated to Justin Timberlake videos (YES!).

Oh, yeah… Bring that sexy back, JT. Bring it right here. 🙂

guerlain belle de nuit holiday 2012

A few weeks ago I walked into an air-conditioned Williams-Sonoma store that had Christmas decorations up and a fancy holiday window display (complete with garland-covered pine tree flocked with fake snow).

In early September.

I’m just sayin’.

Funny thing is, when it comes to fashion and makeup, I actually like super early seasonal releases; they appeal to my inner princess — you know, the one who makes grabby hands at pretty products and says, “Gimme, gimme, gimme!” with big anime eyes. 🙂

One of the earliest holiday collections to stake a claim this fall has been Guerlain’s six-piece Belle de Nuit (beautiful night), with colors inspired by the evening sky. It’s available online now through AHAlife.com, a membership site that showcases a wide range of products from food to fashion and beauty (you have to register for an account to place a purchase), and if you’d rather wait, the collection dances onto counters this November.

From left to right: Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder & Blush ($67), Rouge Automatique Lipstick in Nuit d’Amour ($35) and Les Ombres de Nuit 4-Colour Palette ($59)

A Guerlain Belle de Nuit Face of the Day

Published in: Face of the Day (FOTD)

I woke up in a playful mood this morning, so after a few minutes chasing Tabs around the house, I reached for a few pieces from the upcoming Guerlain Belle de Nuit holiday collection and sat down to do my makeup.

From left to right: Parure de Nuit Pressed Powder & Blush ($67), Rouge Automatique Lipstick in Nuit d’Amour ($35) and Les Ombres de Nuit 4-Colour Palette ($59)

That quad? Flawless. I’ll post collection reviews soon, but I couldn’t wait to show you pics of the quad in action.
