Weekend Roundup - July 3

Fireworks remind me of makeup. They come in every color of the rainbow! This weekend, we'll celebrate makeup - and all products that make us beautiful - in our weekend roundup.

Age spots: We hate them, but unfortunately most of us get them. Gaia from The Non-Blonde has been testing Clé de Peau Beaute's Anti-Age Spot Serum with some wonderful results. "Worth every penny of the pretty pennies it costs." Gaia also has a giveaway contest for a mini Aftelier fragrance of your choice. Be sure to sign up! Who doesn't like to win free stuff?

Do you love cream eye shadows? I sure do! Head over to see what Kelly at Gouldylox Reviews has to say about the newest Stay-There cream shadows from Buxom. They haven't hit the makeup counters yet, but you might want to stand in line to get yours!

Kari at Fab over Forty shared with us one of her many summertime must-haves. The luxurious Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Powder helps to keep the shine at bay and your skin soft and glowing without any cakey feeling or dry look. Another winning product from our friends at Armani!

They "eyes have it" as they say. How can you get "it" too? Chelsea from BeautyXposé gave us some tips on how to get beautifully lined eyes without breaking the bank using COVERGIRL's newest eyeliner.

Are you spending part of your busy holiday weekend at the beach? Laurie from Product Girl is. In addition to her required sunscreen, she shares with us her must-have beauty products for time at the beach. You will want to find out what she took with her.

Cindy at Prime Beauty has what she calls CADD (Cosmetic Attention Deficit Disorder - look out medical professionals, it's the next big affliction), but these five products are ones that stay at the top of her beauty list. They've been around for awhile, but they keep Cindy going back for more!

Yes, it's barely July, and the fall collections are already arriving on the shelves. Lianne at The Makeup Girl spotlighted Tom Pecheux's latest collection for Estee Lauder, Blue Dahlia. He's injecting some beautiful new products into the line and that makes us happy!

Looking to give your skin the royal treatment? Debbi at DivaDebbi gave us the scoop on Keihl's Imperial Body Balm. Does it make her feel like a queen? Go find out!

Vicki at Makeup Artist Backstage gave us more information on what she carries in her professional makeup "suitcase." Have you ever seen Yabby's World of Paint Palette? I haven't, but next time I see Vicki, you can bet I will.

I flipped over Bobbi Brown's Denim & Rose Collection for Fall 2010. I love the highlighter pens, face palette, gel eyeliner - everything, really. You can read about the collection and see swatches here at Best Things in Beauty. Just scroll down!

Today is the last day to enter my giveaway contest for the Bvlgari's Omnia Green Jade fragrance. Enter by midnight if you'd like a chance to win.

Happy beauty reading and remember your sunscreen! It's easier to prevent age spots than get rid of them.
