Tag Archive: Spring Collection 2011


So I was browsing around Specktra.net, and one of the members posted the promo pics of this collection from Allura Beauty. I am impressed, and this is coming from someone who previously ran from bronzer. I always thought they made my face look muddy. But I am definitely interested in the type of glow I could get from the Mineralize Skin Finishes and learning what to do with the Lustre Drops. I wonder how they would compare to NARS Illuminating Highlighter?   I can’t wait to try is the Skin Sheen Leg Spray; I imagine they will impart a sexy bronze, sheen to the legs. Hopefully this collection will live up to expectations and we won’t look as orange as an Oompa Loompa.

Sephora by OPI Glee Collection

Sephora announced that they would be producing a limited edition nail polish collection inspired by the TV show Glee.

According to WWD, the Sephora by OPI Glee collection will include seven shades available for individual sale: Slushied, an opaque blue; Hell to the No, a bold purple; Gleek Out, a glittery lime green; Diva-in-Training, a poppy pink; Who Let the Dorks Out, a peacock green; Miss Bossy Pants, a rich raspberry, and Mash-Up, a pearlescent green gray. Each polish will cost $9.50.

A mini set of six polishes (pictured above) will sell for $22 and include Miss Bossy Pants, Gleek Out and Slushied, along with three additional exclusive colors: Celibacy Club, a glimmering, diamond top coat; Express Yourself to Yourself, a shimmery coral shade, and Sue Vs Shue, a navy blue.

In addition to nail polish, Chic Prints for Nails Design Appliqués — precut strips of dry nail polish — will be available in three different “Glee”-inspired designs: Showstopper, gold stars; Berry Special, polka dots; and One Hit Wonder, music notes. Appliqués last two days on nails and retail for $15.
The collection will be available in stores and online in February and will even be featured on the Feb. 8 episode of Glee.

I’m not that much of a nail polish fan, or a gleek, but I think this is a fun collection for those who are.  ENJOY!

Today I got a call from my favorite Bobbi Brown Makeup Artist, Jamie, and she was excited to tell me about their new lipstick formulas that will be launching this month.  So, I had to come and tell you guys about it.   There will be 12 new shades that featuers a  new gel based formula.  They will retail for $22.  Hopefully I’ll have some swatches for you next weekend.
