Are Your Ready to Play with Some New Lancome?

The last thing I really need to be shopping for are more beauty products. But when there is a gift so great, filled with some products I use a lot, including a terrific bag that I really need, then I must place an order.

Right now at Nordstrom and Nordstrom.com, with any $39.50 Lancome Purchase, you will receive this "Time for Play" gift. 

lancome_time_for_play_gift.jpg Inside this glam gold train case are the following Lancome favorites:
Definicil's High Definition Mascara in Black
Cils Booster XL Mascara Base
Color Design Lipcolor in Trendy Mauve
Color Design Eyecolor Quad
Eye Color Base in Nude
Renergie Microlift R.A.R.E. SPF 15 Superior Lifting Cream
Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover
Train Case
PLUS three coordinating bags.

The polishing treatment has done a superior job of ridding my body of it's dry winter skin, and with just a weeks use, I am already noticing softer and more luminous skin.

My total for this was $46, which qualified me for the gift, and I bought some other great goodies - not from the beauty department - that qualified me for Free shipping, making my little online spree a good one.

This offer is only good while supplies last, so shuffle on over to NORDSTROM to make your Lancome purchase soon.

Heatherette Eye Shadow Trio 1.

Looking online simply does not do many of the Heatherette shades justice. In person the Heatherette for MAC Collection has exceeded my expectations. From the hot hot-pink to the metallic fuchsia along with the holographic foil decoration of the packaging, to the beautiful shades inside the palettes, compacts and tubes.

My favorite piece of the collection is the Eye Shadow Trio 1.

The shades in this palette:
Hoppin’ Clean Pastel Peach (frost)
Mood Ring Pastel Mint Green (veluxe pearl)
Cloudburst True Black with Subtle Green Pearl (velvet)

When looking at the photo of this  trio on MAC, I thought it was too bright. But I was wrong. The shades are simply gorgeous and appear much softer in real light.

I am using the peachy/pink shade all over my brow bone and eye lid with the teal shade (really, it is much more of a teal than a mint green) on  the outer two-thirds of my lid. I then take my MAC 211 Brush and use the darkest black shade that has sparkles of the teal shade in it, as an upper and lower liner. It is beautiful. The sparkle is subtle, but it softens the black and brings the teal shade out more.

The Heatherette Trio's (which are back in stock over at maccosmetics.com) retail for $32.50. And if you are a gal that loves the pink and lilac shades, then you will want to check out the other eye palette, Trio 2.

Fragrance Friday - Philosophy's Grace Scents.

One if the most fantabulous things about the Philosophy fragrances are that you can layer them. Fragrance over fragrance, over shampoo, shower gels, or moisturizers. Anywhere you wear them, particularly any of the "grace" fragrances, will leave you smelling super sweet, and fresh. Never, ever overly done.

In case you do not know of the Philosophy Grace scents, let me introduce them to you.

Amazing Grace
The original grace fragrance is Amazing Grace. This scent is a very light and feminine blend of soft, floral blossoms. With a hint of musk, more noticeable on some people than others, this scent is an everyday fresh and airy choice.

Pure Grace
Like almost the prettiest smelling soap and water, clean and fresh, this scent is not like any other I have used in a fragrance. The fresh blossoms in this scent are lighter and the musk more clean, almost crisp.

Inner Grace
This is another very soft floral scent. Light and fresh, like sniffing blossoms through the air. This one is the lighter and almost more "girly" of the scents.

Baby Grace
If you want to conjure up thoughts of a baby or want to smell like the most pure and innocent, cleanest of bambinos, then this one is for you. I love this scent, and I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t. It almost evokes calm and memories of childhood right after spraying.

You can mix and match any of the scents to make them lighter or more floral. And as everyone is unique, every combination is as well. On the weekends, I love to use the Baby Grace perfumed body lotion, layering it with one spray of the fragrance and then dab the Pure Grace on my pulse points. Dreamy!
