OVERALL, Dress Camp is incredibly pretty and chooses good hues/shades to create a very small (and limited!) collection. So while you may have been out of the house while it sold out in less than 24 hours, do not fear, there are known dupes for just about every color launched! I really adore the palette because it is ideal for summer, especially for someone with similar tastes to me (um, I’m all over golds!). The lipglasses are cute, as is the lipstick, but She-Gold is the most impressive out of the three.

Dress Camp is available at www.maccosmetics.com! I picked up one of everything, and overnighted it… hope it comes Thursday so I can get you all swatches and pics! (This is why I ordered, LOL, I think otherwise I would have skipped!)

Future Earth | May 29, 2008 (Int’l June 2008)

Temptalia brings you this EXCLUSIVE look at Future Earth coming at you this Summer. Please enjoy & credit responsibly. And make sure you share your thoughts and potential hauls!

Volcanic Ash Exfoliator contains natural Volcanic Ash and sugar crystals to cleanse and exfoliate the skin while adding moisture. It glides over the skin effortlessly and allows time for application before the product sets. Volcanic Ash is made from finely ground volcanic rock. The resulting clay is mineral rich and helps to absorb excess oils from the skin. This cleanser contains Volcanic Ash from Vanuatu, which contains sulfur that comes from deep within the earth. This sulfur has been used for centuries as a treatment for a wide variety of skin conditions. Sucrose, another one of the key ingredients, has fine crystals that act as a natural exfoliant. This dermatologist-tested formula adds moisture, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is non-acnegenic and suitable for all skin types.

Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher is a dual-sided stick that combines a lip exfoliator and a lip conditioner that provides the perfect, smooth base for any lip colour product.
