China Glaze @ Cosmoprof 2011


Let It Snow displayers

China Glaze @ Cosmoprof

I spent some time with the lovely people who work on China Glaze, and they had a TON of goodies on display that we’ll be seeing over the next few months.

  • Just in time for Halloween, China Glaze has the Haunting Collection, which features Crimson, Haunting, It’s Alive, Near Dark, Ghoulish Glow (which glows-in-the-dark), and Black Mesh.
  • For the holidays, we’ll see a collection called Let It Snow. China Glaze has several polish sets that also include another goody (like a pair of finger-less gloves), but you can also purchase the shades individually. We’ll be seeing: Twinkle Lights (multi-colored glitter), Champagne Bubbles (gold), Holly-Day (dark green), Glittering Garland (green), Velvet Bow (ruby red), Winter Berry (red), Ring in the Red (glittery red), Poinsettia (red), Blue Year’s Eve (blue), Tinsel Town (silver glitter), Icicle (silver), and Snow Globe (multi-colored glitter). Also, in November, we’ll see six shades of glitter shades come out in Eye Candy, including such shades as Material Girl, Marry a Millionaire, Some Like It Haute.
  • Next spring, we’ll see Electropop Brights and Lights–together, they form a rainbow of creamy colors, though there is one glittery shade. The Brights Collection includes Techno, Aquadelic, Sunshine Pop, Gaga for Green, Make Some Noise, and Wicked Style. The Lights Collection includes Fuchsia Fanatic, Dance Baby, Electric Beat, Kinetic Candy, Sweet Hook, and Gothic Lolita.

CND Shellac Swatches/Photos from Cosmoprof


CND Shellac @ Cosmoprof

I wrote about my Shellac experience at Cosmoprof earlier this week, but I wanted to share with you more photos of other shades of Shellac that are available as well as better photos of what I had done! 🙂 I will provide an update with before/after photos after 14 days of wear.  You can learn more about the technology and full color range at CND’s website.

On the pinky, I have Purple Purple; on the ring finger, I have Hotski to Tchotchke with Zillionaire layered over it (multifaceted flaky glitter); on the middle, I believe it is Rock Royalty with a coat of Iced Coral; on the index, it’s Hot Pop Pink with loose glitter put on over the color coat and sealed with two layers of top coat (totally smooth); and in the thumb, it’s Asphalt that’s been buffed to make it matte and dabs of the top coat for 3D polka dots.

Quick Eyes with Urban Decay Midnight 15 & Flow

Quick Eyes with Urban Decay Midnight 15 & Flow

Yet another quick look with Urban Decay’s 15th Anniversary Eyeshadow Palette — this is the look I wore when I swatched through the Super Saturated Lip Colors. I’m not 100% positive what I used on the lower lash line, but I’m pretty sure I just grabbed for Underground (because it happened to be out).  I needed a look that was super neutral, because the lip colors I was swatching were all rather bold and bright, so I didn’t want the eyeshadow to compete.

I’ve been trying to go through all of the bajillion of folders I have and either using or deleting the photos in them!  I had photos of products I never got around to testing from January, and I just had to force myself to hit the delete key.

You will need the following…

For eyes, start by applying Smudgeproof all over the lid and above the crease with the 249 to lay down your eyeshadow base.  Apply Midnight 15 all over the lid with the 239.  Next, apply Flow into the crease and diffuse it above using the 222. Then apply Trench on brow bone to highlight with the 272. Next, apply Underground eyeliner on the lower lash line and smudge with Flow. Coat lashes with They’re Real mascara to finish the look.

Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss


Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss

Launch Date: July 2011 at all Bobbi Brown counters, bobbibrown.com

Fun is what Bobbi had in mind when she created High Shimmer Lip Gloss. This new formula features a special mix of pearls in a clear base for the ultimate in shimmer, shine and color. Plus, it’s good for lips too thanks to moisturizing emollients and Vitamins C and E that condition and offer antioxidant protection. Bonus: After countless requests from lip gloss aficionados, Bobbi’s sized up all her glosses—including High Shimmer Lip Gloss—and added a convenient doe foot applicator. High Shimmer Lip Gloss is perfect for a night out on the town, special occasions, or simply when you’re in the mood for something fabulous.
