Weekend Roundup - March 14, 2010

Kari at Fabulous Over Forty and I have been chatting about sharing a weekend roundup. She reached out to some other bloggers who were interested in participating. We aren't quite "there yet" with the official version or a set group (we need a name - got an idea?). We will share this one today anyhow. Some of you have told us you missed the old HLMN roundups. We are going to do something about that!

This was a busy week in beauty blogging land. There were some great posts - required reading for beauty lovers!

Kari has us coveting the Anastasia Mini Wax Kit! Who wouldn't want a wax that works? Check out her post at Fabulous Over Forty. You can buy it for only $12 at Ulta - or less. Did you get your Ulta coupon with the sale catalog in the mail?

Kelly at Gouldylox has the latest, greatest Perricone MD giveaway contest! She has an Advanced Face Firming Activator to give away - good stuff for your skin. You need to enter by March 20, so get over there and do it now!

Gaia reviewed the Edward Bess All Over Seduction Cream Highlighter in Sunlight at The Non-Blonde. Gaia, you are costing us money, honey! While you are at The Non-Blonde, you can find out what's happening with some of our favorite brands.

Amber is currently loving Vapour Organic Beauty. Go to Beauty Junkies Unite to find out how you can get your glow back with 100% natural and chemical free products that have a minimum of 70% certified organic ingredients.

We have to give a shout out to new beauty bloggers (this is hard work!). The darlin' Kristen, a girl obsessed with everything beauty (and an Armani veteran), is writing Belle La La. She reviewed Bath & Body Works Summer Vanilla this week. She chose Lemon Vanilla. Which one grabs you? Make sure to read about Aunt Liz at Belle La La!

Are you a MAC addict? Lianne at The Makeup Girl has the scoop on the new Too Fabulous Collection. It looks "too pretty"!

KarlaSugar posts fabulous swatches on The Next Best Thing to Going Shopping Yourself. Want to see Dior's Extas Pinks and Mystic Smokys, eye shadows for spring? Head over for some armchair shopping!

Do you nails need help? Did winter leave them brittle and breaking? Annieytown has the cure at Blogdorf Goodman with Dior's Creme Abricot. "Sitting down with the Creme Abricot, the orangewood stick, and a cup of hot Earl Grey tea, and just taking a bit of time to take care of myself" - sounds pretty good!

Jennifer at Beauty in Real Life keeps us grounded! She let us know how to get our hands on the latest, greatest CoverGirl mascara, LashBlast Fusion. The availability is limited right now, so hurry!

DivaDebbi trolls the beauty aisles at CVS (like the rest of us!), and she found a great lip liner! Now we'll need to try Q135/Plum Lasting Lip Pencil from CoverGirl's Queen Collection, named after Queen Latifah.

Felicia at This That Beauty is also going to cost us some money! L’Occitane has unveiled a brand spanking new makeup collection that draws its inspiration from the peony - the beautiful, fragrant, voluptuous peony. New makeup from L'Occitane - that's news!

Here at Best Things in Beauty, I reviewed Rouge Coco, Chanel's blockbuster new lipstick introduction. There has to be a shade with your name on it! The choices are gorgeous. A new contest started here yesterday, courtesy of Snubbr. Make sure to enter!

We hope you will enjoy these posts from beautyland. Have a great weekend! Did you spring forward?
