My Summer Shadows.

After playing on end with different shadow combinations, I have found my perfect Summer Eye Shadows. Well, two, actually. Two palettes. Make that ten shadows - perfect for Summer.


Each of these Cargo Eye Shadow Palettes contain five separate, coordinated shades. The Paradise Island  palette, pictured on the left, is full of rosey, pink bronzes and nudes. While Ibiza, the palette on the right, contains more neutral bronzes.

Sometimes I simply sweep one or two shades over my eyes' and sometimes use all five. They are simply beautiful, and run the gamut from sheer, matte, to shimmery, and full of color.

Each palette is $28 at



Pure. Tropical. Splendor.

Another look into my Lancôme Juicy Tube Obsession - this time it is the Juicy Tube Tropiques.


Pictured left to right: Bronzed Mocha, Peach Sparkle, Raspberry Shine, Berry Luster.

I swear I break out at least one of these tropical tasting, super shiny, glosses every day. Even if it is just a relax by the pool with no makeup on day, one of these is on my lips!

Each Juicy Tube Tropique retails for $17.50 at Lancôme.

FYI - I am on my second tube of Bronzed Mocha! A bit obsessed, I think - oh yeah.



M·A·C Flashtronic.

I have been longing for this collection from M·A·C Cosmetics. Flashtronic is full of Lipglass and Mineralize products. In addition to the three new Mineralize Skinfinish powders, M·A·C is introducing six new limited edition shades of Mineralize Eye Shadow. Look at how beautiful they are!

mac_ft_b.jpgPictured from left to right are the six Mineralize Eye Shadow's ($14): Ether (Deep aqua with silver, black and gold veining); By Jupiter (Light taupe with beige and deep brown veining); Lovestone (Raspberry with wine and copper veining); Quarry (Sky blue with olive, coral, and beige veining); Tectonic (Yellow gold with lime green, warm brown and black veining); Yellow gold with lilac and chestnut veining).

The shades are "A sheer, pearled, mineralized powder eye shadow with up to four shades baked together in one pan". They feel incredibly lightweight and smooth on soft and shimmery.

The rest of Flashtronic includes the Lipglass's ($14) - Perfectly Pink, Flashtronic, Young Spark, and Electro-Lush. And the Mineralize Skinfinish Powder's ($24.50) - Northern Light, Gold Spill, and Global Glow.

I can't wait to try out the limitless combinations of these products, and will definitely have fun with our M·A·C make over night tonight. I will post pictures over the weekend.
