Chanel Keeps Eyes Smokey for Fall

Chanel-Eye-Shadow CHANEL Fall 2008 Collection seems to be all about making a statement. A statement with your eyes and oh, do they twinkle when I wear their Soft Touch Eyeshadows in Black Star (shown here) and Platine. My computer going to computer heaven late last month really threw me off on getting to the fall collections early but better late than never right? The Black Star can be the base of a really sexy smokey eye and the Platine can be used over it or under the brow or in the corner of the eye for an accent. Yes, it’s love.

Choose from Peppermint scented products to White Clover to Almond to Tropical Fruit. With these, you’ll never feel that you’re going without.

Have Your Cake But Don't Eat It With Jaqua

Jaqua I am really liking JAQUA BEAUTY’s new Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Hand Crème ($8/2oz) for when I get a sugar craving. Crazy? Yes, but it seems to stave it off for at least ½ an hour. And I like that the scent is not too strong but they should have just called is Raspberry as I didn’t really smell any buttercream frosting with it. And it’s made with meadowfoam seed oil, real fruit extracts and vitamins A and E so it keeps skin nourished. The scent also comes in a Shower Creme ($18/8oz), Lip Whip ($14), Lip Gloss Ring ($8), which is wicked cute and a Sinfully Rich Body Butter ($22/6oz). All @ bathandbodyworks.com

Need A Scent Pick-Me-Up? Bella Lucce To the Rescue!

Bella-Lucce-Arabian-Odyssey I’ll admit it. I get burnt out every so often, as in, nothing is exciting me and then BAM, along comes something that wakes me up. And that’s exactly what happened with BELLA LUCCE’s new Arabian Odyssey Collection. The Founder of the line has actually traveled to different parts of Arabia six times in the past two years and we’re glad she did as all eight products in the collection have been hanging stateside since I got a few weeks ago. I just can’t get enough! Using ingredients only found in that area like, Turkish coffee, Dead Sea mud, red sandalwood, Moroccan lava clay and date sugar, to name a few, each product is made in small batches to ensure freshness. And like the rest of the line, each is free of parabens, silicones, dyes, formaldehyde donors and phthalates and sulfats.

Our picks:

  • Exotic Date & Wild Honey Buff ($28/10oz)

  • Moroccan Lava Cleansing Bar ($9/4.5oz)

  • Spiced Pomegranate & Yogurt Detox ($30/4.8oz)

So thanks for getting me out of my beauty funk, Bella Lucce! All @ bellalucce.com
