Weekend Roundup - November 20

The crispness of fall is in the air, and the holiday season starts next week! Office parties, neighborhood parties, family dinners, holiday shopping, and more will be consuming our lives for the next several weeks. We want to look our very best for all of these occasions, and there’s no better place than our favorite beauty blogs to find the best new must-haves for the season.

The holidays are the perfect time to treat yourself to a new fragrance, and Gaia has a suggestion that could make you feel glamorous and add an air of mystery to your charm. Pop over to The Non-Blonde to find out whether Gypsy should be on your wish list.

Flawless skin makes us look more youthful, and we want to look flawless (and youthful!) for the holidays - anytime really! Kari tested the Luminess Air system. Did it give her the flawless look she wanted? Find out at Fab over Forty.

While we're talking about "flawless for the holidays," Jane found a new primer she loves: Exuberance Silicone-Free Primer. You have to read more at Daly Beauty. It sounds fabulous.

At BeautyXposé, Anne was smitten with holiday collections of mineral shadows, liners, and glosses from Bare Escentuals. They may be the perfect gift sets - if you can bear to part with them.

Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book decided YSL's Touche d'Or Highlighter and Colorama Palette gave her a gorgeous golden glow for the holidays. I like them too, and I think our coloring is very different. Will these highlighters make you a YSL convert, if you're not already?

Kelly added some glitz to her life with a little sparkle on her lashes! Pop over to Gouldylox Reviews to find out how Hard Candy's Lash Tinsel could light up your eyes for a special event.

Debbi at DivaDebbi has a new holy grail foundation. Read about DivaDebbi's love affair with Giorgio Armani Beauty's Luminous Silk Foundation - and Armani's blender brush! We're betting she buys the brush too. Make sure to comment and tell her why she needs it. Loyd Cassler uses this brush for everything. He says if you can only buy one brush, buy the blender brush.

Carla at Product Girl knows that smoky eyes are perfect for holiday parties. She's loving the newest kit from Smashbox! Check it out.

Once upon a time...Alima Pure made me feel like a princess. Scroll down to this week's features at Best Things in Beauty to find out how Once Upon a Time could make your own beautiful dreams come true. Later today, I'm getting out the Le Métier de Beauté Magic Lustre Creme to experiment with a little magic, transforming these loose powders into creams. Can't wait to play!

Today is the last day to enter the giveaway contest to win a Vera Wang Anniversary fragrance from Attention USA. Don't forget to enter here! This is a beautiful fragrance - the more I wear it, the more I love it.

See any must-haves in the roundup?

Read the YSL review in Beauty Look Book - I agree with her regarding the Touche D'Or, but cannot believe she doesn't like the Touche Eclat - a must have in my makeup bag. I use it for everything - making my lips look fuller, sculpting my cheekbones, making my eyes pop by applying it beneath and above my eyes, etc. It is indispensible to me, but to each his own. I saw it wielded like a samurai sword by a makeup artist who was working on a bride - literally, she would swoop her arm down, click click, apply, swoop, click click - apply, it was amazing!
Thank you for providing a roundup for those of us who are lazy and need more coffee on our Saturday mornings!

You're welcome, Miss Brahms! I was up and out of here early. Would love to have been lazy. :)
