A true beauty icon - Raquel Welch. In case you have not heard, Raquel has been named a Beauty Icon and has collaborated with MAC to bring you this years Beauty Icon collection.

Can you believe that this icon is 66 years old? AMAZING! And she has created this colour collection for an older woman. The colors are flattering, and in my opinion, fit for any woman wanting to look classy. And I want those lashes... if I could only figure out how to apply them!

The items are housed in beautiful tiger-print and glossy black cases. Beautiful.

My favorite items in the collection are:

A Benefit How-To!

Check out this cool little product from Benefit. It is called "10", to get your cheeks looking like a perfect "model 10".

The application technique is unique, and I am not totally sure if it would work without some effort. You know, sweeping the brush over the product with the same pressure, and things like that. And what if you wanted a little more bronzer and less highlighter?  You would have to use a few more brushes. But it does look like a nifty little product I would definitely give a try.

Here is the "How to":

UPDATE: I wrote this post before I actually tried this product, in which I just did. There is more of the bronzer than the highlighter in the box, and the application is really simple. I just use the brush included and swipe it evenly back and forth 2 or 3 times to get the right amount of product and sweep the brush onto my cheeks. It really is easy and a great way to get a perfectly balanced look. Kudos to Benefit for a unique product offering.

"10" is $26 and shipping is free at BenefitCosmetics when you purchase "10" by using promo code: FRSHIP10

For a Fresh and Flawless Face...

For a fresh and flawless face, turn to no other than Cover Girl.

covergirl_1.jpgThey just came out with mineral enriched facial products. A loose powder that doubles as a foundation, a blush and bronzer. And I couldn't be happier about the quality of product, shade selection, and especially the price.

The Naturally Luminous Loose Powder comes in four translucent shades to easily match skin tones. It is simple to apply by using the Bare Escentuals method of swirling, tapping, and buffing this onto you skin. It leaves an air brushed look to the skin.
