24-Karat Gold - BABY!

gold_dust.jpgI was looking for a little bit of subtle sparkle for New Years Eve last night, and I found it in Jane Iredale's 24-Karat Gold Dust in Gold. And what is truly amazing about this Gold Dust is that it is made with real 24-Karat Gold Leaf.

I swept it over my cheeks, eyelids, chest and shoulders for the big night.  I also patted a bit of it over my lipstick for the evening (Mally's Zooey Doll - the perfect red for my fair skin). I not only looked luxurious, I felt it!

I love how you can totally control the amount of sparkle you wear by simply punching out only a few of the holes in the top of the sifter disc. I never thought of that, but it is instructed right on the package. Love it!

Look for Gold Dust ($34) and all of the great Iredale Mineral Cosmetics online at her website to see the newest innovations in mineral makeup.


Go Out With Some Glitter!

Whether you are ringing out the old or bringing in the new, they isn't a better way to do it than with a little - say Glitter. That is what Tarte Cosmetics had in mind when they created this great Glitterati Eye Kit, an exclusive to Sephora.

To get Tarte's "Glitterati Eye" look, simply stroke Glitterati over your Lights, Camera, Lashes!and be sure to concentrate on the ends to get the real WOW factor. The eye liner can be used on it's own or over a darker liner to really intensify the look. The Glitterati mascara is great to run highlights through your hair to give it a bit of silver sparkle too.

Like I said, this is a Sephora exclusive, so be sure to get over there right away or order online. It is a $48 value for just $30.

And if you are a Tarte girl and think you have what it takes to strut you stuff along side Tarte's creator Maureen Kelly on QVC, be sure to visit this link to find out how you could have the chance to win this once in a lifetime opportunity! 

Happy New Year!


My Best of 2006.

I have discovered so many great new beauty products this year - some new, some tried and true, but new to me - that I am having such a difficult time narrowing down my "Favorite Things" list for the year. 

One thing that I can easily add to the list is you, my faithful and loyal readers. Without you, there would be no beauty blog - and I would have no other way to show and express my joys of beauty searching. So to you all, I thank you for your continued support.

Onto the list. Here I present My Favorite Things 2006.
