It has been a week full of beauty, with boxes arriving and a little in-store shopping. I have plenty to show you over the next few weeks. Can't wait! Yesterday, it was impossible to get pictures here. We were having monsoon-like rains. Even now, in early morning as I write this, it's raining. We needed the rain, but I always wonder if these huge soakers make up for months of sub-standard rainfall.
Chanel's Holiday Collection for 2010 is in stores. I saw it (and purchased many pieces) at Saks yesterday. I already knew that the new and incredibly exquisite eye shadow collection from Giorgio Armani Beauty, planned for a fall introduction, had been delayed. I learned yesterday that we might not see it until February! Armani's holiday goodies will be the next to arrive in stores, sometime this month. Before long, all of the holiday collections will filter into the stores. It's hard to believe we are approaching the holiday season. Did September fly by?
Don't forget we have a Kat Von D Painted Love Lipstick Set giveaway contest underway. You can enter until midnight Saturday night to win six miniature lipsticks, with shades spanning the range from nude to red. It's a useful set!
It's time for The Friday Forum! We use The Friday Forum to share information. Are you using a fabulous product and want to sing its praises? Did you find a beauty product disappointing? Do you have a question others might be able to answer? Want to talk about skin care? Just use the comments. Don't be shy.
We have busy weekends and slow ones on the forum. I'm happy if even one reader stops by. Leave a comment, and say hello - even if you don't want to comment on beauty products. As I always do, I'll leave news of some great beauty offers (great, not just good) in the comments of this post. If you want to know where to find nice gifts with purchase, free shipping, and other deals this weekend, make sure to check the comments.
Thanks for reading Best Things in Beauty! Got anything you want to talk about?
