The Best of the Best, Volume #002

This week has definitely been a better one than last–the boy is definitely on the mend (chest pains), and Magellan is limping a lot less. My weekend (which starts today–yay!) plans include mostly catching up on comments (sorry I am so behind! argh!), working on reviews, and generally all that is beauty. (So shocking!) What are you doing for the long weekend? I hope everyone has an awesome holiday weekend! :)

This Week’s 5 Most Popular Posts

This Week’s 5 Most Discussed Posts

  • What makeup is in your purse right now?: Some of you are carrying makeup bags within your purses, others have products rolling around (that’s more my style!) the bottom… and others are finding lost treasure in those cavernous bags!
  • What was the last beauty product you finished?: a surprising amount of you have finished beauty products fairly recently — very nice!
  • The Hit List: Worst Brush Brand: seemed like Bare Escentuals may have made it to the top of the hit list in this week’s edition, but several other brands like Coastal Scents and Posh made appearances, too.
  • Rant & Rave: Perfume: You loved it, you hated it, and some of you didn’t have time for it…
  • Survey Says: this week’s edition was all about what you loved and hated about makeup and how you first got into it.

Kiehl's Acai Organic Skincare

Kiehl’s to Launch Acai Organic Skin Care Line in September

In mid-september, Kiehl’s will unveil it’s first organic skin care line. The line has received approval from Ecocert and Cradle to Cradle.

“Since our inception, we have always been known for our service and for creating efficacious products,” said Salgardo, noting that everyone asks for “green” products, but still demand high performance. “We heard that our customers wanted organics, that they wanted paraben-free, that they wanted natural — and they wanted to focus on the first signs of aging. We went to the lab to do all that. The result: our new Açaí line.”

The Line Includes…

  • Açaí Damage-Minimizing Cleanser, $25 for 5 oz.
  • Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, $27 for 6 oz.
  • Damage-Correcting Moisturizer, $44 for 2.5 oz.
  • Damage-Repairing Serum, $46 for 1.7 oz.

Temptalia Asks You

Do you consider face/cheek highlighters a must for everyday? Do you only bother for certain looks or occasions?

Temptalia's Answer.

I tend to wear a highlighter on top of any blush I wear, so I guess I’d say it’s a must! Sometimes I even wear highlighters alone just for a little oomph.
