This has been a very slow beauty week for me. I haven't visited any stores, primarily because we are in an introduction lull. The summer collections will arrive at counters any day. April will be a busy month.
I've taken the opportunity to rest my foot and try to make some sense of the clutter that has built up since it started hurting. I try to sort my mail at the recycling bin when it arrives - even before it makes its way into my house, but I'm not always successful. Who wants to stand outside and sort mail when it's raining?
It's Good Friday, and I know many of you are preparing for Easter Sunday. Passover had begun. Many schoolchildren are on spring break. This is a busy time; I can see it in my blog's visit statistics. I'll try to come up with some irresistible things to show you over the weekend. One thing that caught my eye - perhaps because of the Easter egg colors - was an advertisement for new Stila colors. The two eyeliners, while not terrible practical, look beautiful.
It's time for the Friday Forum. I love this part of our week. What new products did you discover this week? Did you find any deals you couldn't resist? 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? What's new in your life? Just use the comments. Don't be shy. Just make sure to ask any question you might have over the weekend. By early the next week, most (not all) readers will have moved on.
Don't forget to enter this week's giveaway contest for Tarte's five-piece LipSurgence set. The deadline is tomorrow, Saturday, March 30 at midnight. I'm thinking of running an additional flash giveaway over the weekend, so make sure to check back.
