A Look Ahead to Summer - Lancôme Cabana Bronze.

If this doesn't make you wish for long, hot Summer days, I don't know what will. The Lancôme Summer Collection, which doesn't hit counters until next month, is simply beautiful. Let me introduce you to Cabana Bronze.

The star products include the Star Bronzer Sun Cherub Compact and the Color Design Cabana Bronze Eye Shadow Palette.

The Sun Cherub Compact ($50) is a cherub embedded large bronzer. Loved by celebrities and makeup artists, this très grand palette showcases the original Lancôme cherub embossed in a sea of light and dark bronze shades.

Select from one of the two new shadow palettes. Color Design Cabana Bronze Eye Shadow Palette ($43) in Cabana Sunrise, with its pinks, lilacs and browns, will awaken your senses, while Cabana Sunset with its sultry golds and deep browns will set the mood for the evening ahead.

I am rocking the Cabana Sunset eye look today with the newest Color Fever Gloss from the collection, in a beautiful sheer and sparkling bronze. Now, I just need the bronze tan to match (coming soon!).

I cannot wait until the entire collection is launched in April.

Fragrance Friday - Nanette Lepore.

585248-1383973-thumbnail.jpgWhen I wear Nanette Lepore, I sometimes think that I am a grown up Eloise.

Now living at the Plaza, wearing chic, yet fun clothes, prancing around Central Park in May. With the sun shining, I think that I have bathed in this fragrance before dancing through the flowers. Eloise would have.

Can you imagine? Then you can imagine this wonderfully romantic, yet fun and flirty fragrance, Nanette Lepore.

The fragrance opens with moonstone rose, white peach, and white cranberry juices. With middle notes of black currant, orange jasmine, and Persian lime nectar, it is warm and sensual. The black currant smells so nice on me. As the scent dries down, I am left with the sweet smell of violet.

Yes - light, springy, warm and sunny.

With Gianni Mastrocola, master perfumer, Nanette's whimsical spirit is brought to life through the fragrance.

Nanette Lepore Eau de Parfum Spray is available in both a 3.4 ($78) and 1.7 ($58) ounce size.

Joyous is such a beautiful shade to be worn with beautiful brown and neutral colored eye shades. This one was my first pick and certainly did not disappoint. True Romantic is the perfect companion to the dark gray or blue smokey eye.  I think I am most unexpectedly intrigued with Serenely and how it looks like I just took a brisk walk, yet better.

Of course, the perfect brush to apply the blush is a must-have. Choose from 169 Angled Blush Brush or 116 Blush Brush. Each one is $32 and makes applying the powder perfectly, each and every time.

Beauty Powder Blush is $17.50 per shade, and is on counter at MAC and maccosmetics.com.
