So feeling totally jealous at all de lucky people with new iPhone5s!! I’m thinking of doing a little retail therapy, plus it’s the end of summer and I’m kinda sad about that!! I had an amazing time this summer!! My highlight was definitely my trip to Turkey (yes I, still have some posts to write on that!)!
Anyway, vegan nail polish brand has 2 glitter collections available now for pre-order.
First, the Ornate Collection for Winter/Holiday 2012/2013
The NEW Zoya Ornate Collectionis the perfect to decorate your nails with stunning jewel tone colors and special effect pigments this season. Featuring six stunning, glittering, crystal shades in our new Power Pigment Full Coverage Formula. Superior coverage and dynamic color in one. All in the long-wearing, toxin-free (BIG5FREE) formula you love… Each one is as beautiful as the next.
It’s also the launch of New York Fashion Week! Needless to say that Manhattan is buzzing!
There is also FNO in other cities across the US and around the world. Many beauty brands are bringing out limited edition or special edition items just for this night.
NARS Cosmetics has added two new products to their 413 BLKR collection, a Duo Eyeshadow and a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. Now available at the NARS Flagship Boutique NYC, online at narscosmetics.com and select retailers (Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel, Barneys NY, Lord & Taylor and Bloomingdale’s).
Doesn’t this remind you of new pencil cases from your primary school days?

Urban Decay releases a new limited edition set of 8 pencils.
Introducing Ocho Loco, a rainbow collection of eight FULL-SIZED 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils by Urban Decay. The set mixes FOUR new and EXCLUSIVE brights and shimmers with some of our best-selling, sexy shades. We also included a Grind House Double Barrel Sharpener, for the ultimate 24/7 set!
Makeup artists and beauty bloggers rave about their favorite 24/7 pencils, but always want more shades. Ocho Loco is a Technicolor dream with new shades like LSD, a navy with bright turquoise shimmer; Psychedelic Sister, a bright purple shimmer; and the long-awaited Mushroom, a taupe/pewter metallic, inspired by our best-selling new Eyeshadow.
Urban Decay almost never creates a set with full-size pencils, so Ocho Loco is a true collectors’ item for the eye pencil connoisseur. The craziest thing might be the price: $59 for eight full-sized pencils – that’s a value of $152!
This collection of pencils is housed in a sleek, multi-colored tray… like a box of multi-colored candy. Ocho Loco is a gift that makes an impression!
“Ocho Loco” means “Crazy Eight” in Spanish, appropriate for this OMG-worthy selection of 24/7 shades. Our highly-saturated and waterproof 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils go on creamy smooth, then set for long-lasting wear.
So as you may know, Maybelline NY is the official makeup sponsor for New York Fashion Week and they have released a limited edition mascara collection that will be available in stores only in August in the US. I don’t think these were released to all drugstores, I found mine at Walgreens and I saw them at Rite-Aid. Also I heard they are available at Target, but I have yet to see them in Duane Reade or CVS. Anyway, there are 4 new colours available in the classic Great Lash packaging. I love coloured mascara and the words ‘limited edition’ makes these irresistible to me! I picked up just one of the colours as you guys know that I am not a fan of the original as the brush does nothing to my lashes and the formula is kinda thin for my liking.
This is a brand that I am just discovering. I have heard a lot of good things about Laura Mercier from the artists in the know. I have a few product reviews from this brand coming soon, but in the meantime, check out what’s up for this summer!
Confident, chic, playful
Laura’s inspiration for 2012 draws from her background as a fine art painter and focuses on the mood and attitude of women through different art periods. For Summer 2012, she invites you to escape to a dream world that explores creativity through colour, taking inspiration from Art Nouveau’s innovative spirit and painted posters. This poetic embrace of sugary happy tones in sheer textures sets the mood—soft but daring, playful yet romantic.
The face is touched in clouds of colour that bring sophistication without strong definition. Highlights include sheer milky pastel eyes and translucent lips printed in colour. Skin is illuminated with a soft, healthy touch of bronzer and glow.
