Weekend Roundup - February 12

Winter has been hanging on. Fortunately, spring beauty and fashion have hit the stores to give us hope for an end. In the DC area, it's predicted that we will have several 60-degree days next week! That might melt the remaining snow mounds. Find out what we've been up to in beauty land while we wait for spring.

Our own Kari at Fab over Forty was asked by Ladies' Home Journal to name her favorite beauty products for their annual "Beauty Awards" issue. See what made the cut for the magazine's March issue.

There is a lot of new makeup to love. Amy showed us Chanel's Rouge Coco Shine in Boy at Café Makeup. The demand for it has been amazing. I ordered from two stores. I think it will only be sent from one in Florida (our local Nordstrom wasn't scheduled to receive it). It was supposed to ship Thursday, so maybe mine will arrive early next week. I sure hope so!

We Edward Bess lovers are almost cult-like in our love for Edward and his extraordinary makeup. Head over to The Non-Blonde to find out why Gaia finds his Luminous Eye Shadow in Nude an essential.

I received my Chantecaille Sea Turtle Palette this week and promptly fell in love. See the palette and find out why you should support "the cause" at Best Things in Beauty.

Sabrina is on the prowl for a new foundation. Part 1 of her three-part series is ready for you at The Beauty Look Book. I saw this morning that she published Part II also. Find out what products are making the grade.

Ever wonder if RevitaLash Lash Growth Serum and Mascara works? Find out what Kelly thinks at Gouldylox Reviews!

Is you skin suffering from winter? Kathryn has offered us some great tips for winter skin care at BeautyXposé.

As winter drags on, the cold, dry air damages our hair too. Laurie at Product Girl gave us her recommendations for keeping hair healthy. She would love to hear what works for you.

Debbi wrote a fun feature on her beauty graveyard. Check out DivaDebbi to see the discontinued products that she's hanging onto - for as long as possible.

What do you know about Soap & Glory? If the answer is "not enough," you must read Jane's post at Daly Beauty.

Hang in there - winter has to end! Let's all dream about daffodils!

Nothing beauteous to report, just stopped by to say I hope that you're healing up nicely and that the physical therapy is helping! Have a good weekend! I am unfortunately working all weekend. Boo.
