Kings & Queens Shimmering Body Milk ($11.00) is intringuing if only for the fact that it seems so cheap to be carried by Nordstrom. It is a Nordstrom Exclusive, and it is something put by Korres. With summer coming up, I am all about shimmering whatnots. Also, I’m a bit of an Egypt buff, so all the talk about Egyptian lotus got me curious!

Lancôme Star Bronzer ($50.00) has this gorgeous palette design of a cherub and sun. It’s hard to resist just for the sake of how pretty it looks, but it’s one of those things that you’ll buy and rarely use for fear of ruining the design.

Guerlain Eye Pencil Glides ($27.00) are highly pigmented gel pencils, and they’re supposed to be able to withstand “wind and tide” aka humidity. Hmm. Comes with a sharpener (score!). I’m soo interested in these. But $27?!

Lancôme Color Design Palette ($43.00) is gorgeous! I actually have this (not in the pretty quad, though) from a lab sample Lancome sent over, and it is such a gorgeous foursome. Just really bronzy and golden, love it! The one pictured is Cabana Sunset, but Cabana Sunrise has pinks and browns (equally nice looking).

All of these are currently available at

  1. Wow, I’m usually not about the browns, but that golden/brown palette is too gorgeous! I looked at the site, and yeah, the pink is awesome looking too! Almost awesome enough to sway me from Mac…. almost. LOL

    Ooh, the Guerlain pencils do sound interesting, but yeah – $27 is a lot of money for just a pencil. I have no problem dropping cash on face makeup and skin/hair products, but I think in most cases, an eyeliner pencil really is just an eyeliner pencil! It’s hard to justify spending $27 when you can buy something comparable for $6 (NYC Waterproof Eyeliner pencils work well!) But, if you do try them, let us know if they’re worth it!

  3. Oh wow! I’ve never heard of Kings & Queens before … thanks for sharing about this – I can’t wait to go check ’em out at Nordies site. xo
