Weekend Roundup - September 25

September is brimming with beauty! From fall flowers to fashion, it's an exciting time of year. We've been focused this week on the season's latest makeup, nail colors, and hair care, among a few other obsessions. Take our beauty tour to see our latest loves.

Sabrina demonstrated why the perfectly named Stellar Pink in Rouge Volupté Perle has become an overnight sensation. Visit The Beauty Look Book to find out why you need the star of YSL's show.

Gaia discovered the wonders of Laura Mercier's fab Eye Liner in Black Ebony and provided some great application assistance at The Non-Blonde. Yesterday, Gaia posted her take on my current faves from Armani, the Uptown Mauve Collection. You can see her swatches (and a cute kitty nose) at this link.

Anne is an admitted nail polish "fiend." She told us why Dazzle Dry is the Energizer Bunny of nail polishes at BeautyXposé.

Kelly modeled the Fall/Winter Collection of the Fusion of Color Natural Collection at Gouldylox Reviews. She showed us how to look like ourselves, only better.

Kari always has a Pantene product in her shower. She recently tried Professional Level Damage Repair Ampoule Treatment for Medium Thick Hair, and even though her hair isn't particularly thick, she liked it! Find out why at Fab over Forty.

Ever wonder how those airbrush foundation products really work? Self-proclaimed klutz Lisa told us how she fell in love with the Luminess Air Brush Pro System at The Beauty Info Zone Blog. We'll be watching to see how long it takes her to repossess it from Marcia.

Did you watch Episode 1 of Flawless Faces for All Races last week? Vicki posted Episode 2 this week at Makeup Artist Backstage. All of us can learn tips and techniques by watching pro artist Vicki make women gorgeous!

Burberry Beauty's Rosewood Eyeshadow has become a blogger darling. Find out why from Elvira at Pink Sith. It looks great on her!

Product Girl Carla celebrated her five-year blogging anniversary this week. Congratulations, Carla! Ever wondered what a beauty addict's home looks like? Head over to see her true confessions.

This week, I got my hands on four of the new Uptown Mauve Rouge d'Armani lipsticks from Giorgio Armani Beauty. Scroll down or go to this link at Best Things in Beauty to see why there should be a creamy, long-lasting lovely in your makeup bag.

Don't forget to enter this week's giveaway contest for a darling Tarte lip gloss set. The deadline is midnight tonight!

We hope you have a great weekend. Do something nice for yourself!

Nice round-up! I scooted immediately to Lisa's blog about Air Brush foundation. I just reminisced about my experiences with Temptu and my recent cheap and cheerful try at the same experience with Sally Hansen's New Air Brush foundation, (sadly, not the same experience)! This system and price point are similar to Temptu's and I'll bet the results are as lovely. WHAT I REALLY WANT is an equally good system at half the price! I just cant justify the indulgence, and I justify plenty!!!

xox,

Hey there, Debbi!

I read your post this week on airbrush foundations and roared with laughter. I am sure, if Lisa is a klutz, that I am the "ultimate klutz."

Since I do really well with a bottle and a foundation brush or sponge, I'm sticking with my "old fashioned" tried and true. :)
