Weekend Reading #23
Happy weekend! Even though last week was a short week for me it still felt like it took forever, so I’m looking forward to the holiday next weekend. And after that – vacation! I’m seriously counting down the days until we head out to California. Is it to soon to start packing?
One of the things I’m going to check out ASAP when I get to San Francisco is the Burberry Summer Showers collection for this season. The Beauty Look Book has swatches of the nail polishes and lip balms – and as usual, fantastic comparison swatches. I’m fairly sure I need Pink Peony everything in my life.
Another summer collection that looks awesome is the ArtDeco Miami collection, which Makeup4All has promo images of. Believe it or not I haven’t actually tried anything from ArtDeco yet, but I’m really interested to see how the eyeshadow pencils hold up against my other favorites and the lipstick/crayon hybrid things intrigue me.
A lipstick that I probably would have skipped over entirely are the Clinique Soft Matte lipsticks, but I stumbled across them on Buy Now Blog Later, and they look absolutely stunning. I’m a sucker for a demi-matte lipstick, so these are going on my list o’ things to test at Sephora.
Another thing that I may also check out at Sephora is the new Benefit They’re Real Push-Up liner. Tracy from Beauty Reflections didn’t really enjoy it, despite the hype, and honestly I don’t expect to either. But I got an email from Sephora this morning about a sample for it (code PUSHUP) so if it’s still around the next time I make an order I may grab it. I’ve been holding strong on my low buy, but I do need to pick up a new bottle of Hourglass Immaculate….
If you’ve been looking for an updated perfume shopping guide for NYC, The Non-Blonde has a fresh version up for you. It’s enough to fill up an entire week! I haven’t had the chance to visit any of them (seeing as I’ve never actually been to New York), but I have ordered from Twisted Lily before and they were incredibly helpful with my questions – amazing customer service.
I also really want to check out This is Ground, a leather accessories brand I heard about via Farpitzs. The Explorer Mod folio claims to be for ‘outdoorsmen’ but do those loops look like they’re the perfect size for lipstick or what?
