  • Jouses contraste Blush in OR (gold), Rouge (red) and Mocha 
  • Soin Tendre Levres - Clear Lip Balm
  • Le Vernis in Shade #437 Coromandel (repromote)
  • Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstikcs
El dorado Joues Contraste blush which was previously released in teh US as a limited edition blush was used int eh Paris' fashion week, but that doesn't necesarrily mean they will re-release it for the fall.  

It looks as thought the chrome nail trend isn't going away any time soon and will roll right into the fall shades.  All three nail polishes, Graphite, Quartz and Peridot are all very pearly and very shinny.

I'm really loving all three of the nail polishes and I can't wait to try the gold eyeliner and's just something new!!!9

I may buy a couple of these as you all know, I love MAC products so I can hardly ever stay away from any of their launches altogether :)  I think the shades are pretty common, so nothing is really jumping out at me screaming "buy me," but when I actually swatch the product, I'll probably change my mind :)

Script Precision Liquid Liner
 Prodigy Hydrating Lip Gloss

Script Precision Liquid Liner                                                     

These liners are being hailed by Hourglass as "a revolutionary new eyeliner boasting one of the smallest felt tips on the market!The micro-fine, razor-point applicator measure just .5mm and allows for unprecedented precision and exceptional control - if you love Calligraphy, you will love this tool"

I like the tips by Hourglass Artistic Director Gina Brooke below:
"Prepare your lids with concealer to cover any discoloration and apply your eye shadow as usual.  If you're feeling unsure about applying liquid liner, try sketching a guide line with an eye pencil or matte shadow first.  Make the guide as close to the lash line as possible.  Tilt your head backwards and gently pull the eyelid taut with your free hand.  With liner in hand, start in the middle of the eye and work outward along teh top lash line using a series of short, overlapping strokes, gradually applying pressure for a thicker line as you work your way to the corner.

Lastly, line the inner upper corner of eye and the bottom if you seek a more intense look.  If you make a mistake, dab a Q-tip into some eye makeup remover and gently erase the spots.

Aside from using it as a liner, Script can be used to create the illusion of larger eyes by filling in between bottom lashes.  More adventurous wearers can extend the line out for a retro cat eye.  I even use it to draw lashes at teh bottom of the lower lash line and beauty mark."

Script shade is called Jett
