Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) has added several new shades to the range. I believe there are 9 that I did not cover before (a few that are listed as new were previously exclusive to Sephora). Full reviews to come, of course, but here’s a look at swatches for now!
Dior Diorshow Mono Lustrous Smoky Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.06 oz.) is a new powder eyeshadow formula for fall that is available in six shades. I’ve only seen them on Dior’s website, and I actually picked up one shade (Gravity) from Selfridge’s as it is out of stock on Dior’s website. Initially, I thought they were a wet/dry formula, so I swatched them dry and then damp. They are designed to have a “lustrous finish” with “unprecedented shine.” Full reviews to come, but here are swatches:
Estee Lauder Hi-Lustre Pure Color Envy Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a new, permanent formula available in 12 shades. It’s supposed to be a medium coverage lipstick with a lustrous finish. My order just arrived yesterday, so here are some swatches! 🙂
Each harmony associates 5 selected shades for a flawless result: 1 base to smooth out and illuminate, 2 nude shades and 2 smoky shades for a smoldering look. Each shade can be applied alone or layered to create a perfect harmony. Every look is possible, from nude to smoky, according to your wishes. Shades come in matte, satin or metallic finishes and are enriched with Light Pigments, reflecting light to make the eyes seem more open and brighter.

Haul: It’s actually been a completely ridiculous week of stuff coming in! Most of what I bought will be swatched/reviewed (well, I hope), I just ask for your patience so please don’t ask me when, as I can’t make any promises! 🙂 I picked up several IT Velvet Luxe Brushes, plus all 12 shades of Estee Lauder’s Hi-Lustres, First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream, First Aid Beauty Lip Balm, Dior Mono Eyeshadows (x6), Anastasia Stick Foundations, Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Colors (x9)
Weekend plans: I’m trying to get up a half our earlier to take advantage of the “cooler” temps we’ve been having so Mellan can get a walk in! I’m also hoping to organize the garage. We’re fortunate that we don’t have that much stuff (about 1/2 of a car space worth), but it could be more organized and better laid out for greater access. It’s the last part of the house that hasn’t been organized since we moved in last year.
What has been the best part of your summer?: My mom and grandma visiting was a major highlight! It meant a lot for both to come!
