I've managed to go a whole week without going to a department store. That leaves me in the dark about any new things that may have arrived. However, I did get a text yesterday from Chantecaille that new colors have arrived. I'll have to pop over to Neiman Marcus tomorrow.
I did finally receive my Le Métier de Beauté Gravité Kaleidoscope Eye Kit, along with the items I ordered to merit the GWP. I had received an e-mail telling me that the company had been overwhelmed with orders. Gravité is much nicer than I expected. Le Métier de Beauté's publicity photo and their swatch photo made the purple color look hideous. It's not. It's actually almost charcoal. They did themselves a disservice. However, the offer is still on, and the Beauty Vault has been expanded to color, so if you are interested, check it out. I won't be able to swatch it before tomorrow.
Anthropologie has some fabulous fragrances for sale right now. Yosh Han, a well-known and much-loved perfumer, created four scents for the company. I bought all of them! I love Yosh. Yesterday, I tried the first, Sea Ranch ($48), a mineral sea musk with earthy aromatics. It's light and lovely. These fragrances would make fabulous holiday gifts.
Everyone knows the Sephora sale is coming up? Do you know what you will be ordering? Make sure to look at NEST's Luxury Hand Cream Gift Set ($38). Talk about a nice gift!
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.
I hope you have a great weekend!
