Weekend Roundup - October 16

This week, several readers noted the abundance of fabulous beauty introductions this season. We agree! Here are some features from the week to tempt you.

Are you afraid to use blue eye shadows? Gaia at The Non-Blonde offered a review and advice on how to wear the beautiful new Aquamarine #13 Ombre Solo eye shadow from YSL's Fall 2010 Collection. Read it and you may reconsider blue.

Considering going organic? Kari at Fab over Forty spent the week sharing makeup and skin-care products that are natural and organic. She even has a giveaway of Liz Earle products. Make sure to pop over to enter!

Sabrina at The Beauty Look Book gave us a close-up of the Guerlain Holiday 2010 Velours d'Or (#410) Ombre Éclat eye palette, along with fabulous swatches. Will these luxury shadows be adorning your eyes for the upcoming party season?

Creating a smoky eye can be difficult, but Kelly at Gouldylox Reviews found it easy with Samantha's Smoky Eye Collection from Buxom. She gave us the details on this hot set, along with a tutorial for creating gorgeous eyes.

Anne fell in love with the Essie nail polish collection for fall. After a seemingly endless summer filled with brighter-than-bright polishes, this new range of deeper shades is decidedly more demure. Check them out at BeautyXposé.

Debbi discovered Reviva Labs and their miracle anti-aging treatments for our hands. Follow the yellow-brick road to DivaDebbi for before and after photos. You won't believe the results!

Marcia and Lisa at Beauty Info Zone Blog shared the Tarte TEN Limited-Edition Collector's Eyeshadow Palette. It has a range of fall eye shadow colors and textures, and Lisa showed us just one of the beautiful looks on her own eyes. I bought this palette (I just realized I never shared it with you) - love it.

Laurie showed us how to prepare for a beauty emergency with Trish McEvoy's The Voyager at Product Girl. The kit is like keeping a spare tire and some jumper cables in your trunk, but better.

Vicki has now posted five episodes of Flawless Faces for All Races at Makeup Artist Backstage. Have you been following?

I have been dabbling in the Bobbi Brown Holiday 2010 makeup treasures. See Bobbi Brown's latest glam metallic eyeliners here at Best Things in Beauty. Or scroll down to see some of the other holiday goodies here. I have more to show you this weekend.

Don't forget my Bare Escentuals Brilliant Gold Giveaway Contest! The deadline is midnight tonight.

We hope you have a beautiful fall weekend!
