Weekend Roundup - July 10

It's been an incredibly good week for beauty news! Join us for a summer beauty Web tour.

We all have our summertime can't-live-without favorites. Gaia from The Non-Blonde told us what essentials are in her summer bag. Some of Gaia's fab favorites may be surprising!

Think of yourself as a painter and start your everyday makeup routine by creating the perfect canvas. Kari showed us product options for becoming master painters at Fabulous over Forty.

Cindy at Prime Beauty took time out from watching Real Housewives to discover the "East Meets West" skin-care line Juara. Her skin (and family) thank her. Enter her Juara giveaway, and your skin will thank you too!

Summer brings out the fun in nail polishes. Kelly from Gouldylox Reviews was on the hunt for a less expensive version of the Minx Manicure. Find out if Duri Celebrity Scandal did the trick.

As busy women, we multitask every day. At BeautyXposé, Chelsea showed us new and free mobile phone apps we can use to get our beauty on-the-go - from high fashion to low maintenance, everything we busy women need.

Obsessed with keeping your hands moisturized? Just like most of us, Product Girl Carla is obsessed with hand creams. See her latest find and the beautiful très chic packaging that goes along with it.

There is a lot of Twilight love these days! Learn from makeup artist Troy Jensen how he created the red carpet look for Catalina Sandino Moreno, the Maria character in Eclipse.

Planning to order from NARS? Karla Sugar at The Next Best Thing to Going Shopping Yourself has a link you can use to get a free mini lip gloss duo in Striptease/Orgasm. It's valid through July 15.

Debi at DivaDebbi has a checkered lash enhancement history. Don't you want to know which product gave her to-die-for lashes?

Amber offered suggestions for the best multitasking sunscreens for your skin type. Head over to Beauty Junkies Unite to learn more.

Do you have oily skin, or combo skin, in this summertime heat and humidity? At the request of one of my darling French readers, I reviewed Giorgio Armani Beauty's two Lasting Silk foundations. One of them may be perfect for you! Check them out here at Best Things in Beauty.

And don't forget, next week, in addition to my weekly giveaway contest, I'll start a follower contest. To be eligible to win, you will have to be on one of my follower lists: RSS, e-mail, or Twitter. Once I announce the contest, it will be too late to follow to enter (this time). It's like a loyalty contest. My way of thanking you for reading Best Things in Beauty.

Come on back after you take the link tour and let me know what you thought. See anything you can't live without?

After my tour, I think it is the (new?)Juara skincare which attracts me more: the products seem to be amazing and worth trying; the article about Troy Jensen is very interesting too; as to Armani foundations, the two you review look great but I have the same preference as you for the others:-)

Hi Clarisse! Happy Weekend!

Juara makes some really nice products. I like what I've tried!

We >30 (grin) gals seem to love those dewy foundations!
