MAC Cosmetics has launched so many new collections lately, and one I’ve recently played with is the MAC Julia Petit Collection!
I love MAC Eyeshadow x 2 palettes, and this Morganite duo from the MAC Julia Petit makeup collection is no exception! Two warm shades–one a sparkling champagne, the other a deep chocolate–can be used to create an incredible eye look with some creative blending!
Sold out online. Retail is $22. Other colors include Sagu and Moving Sand (both are still available). Click through the jump for photos of MAC Julia Petit Boca Lipstick, and MAC Julia Petit Linda Blush! [Read more…]
Bronzer is a staple during the summer months. I love the look of a tan, but certainly not enough to risk sun damaged skin! One challenge for me is that I have fair skin, so dark bronzers look artificial on me. I’ve recommended many bronzers idea for fair skin over the years, and have to add NARS Tahiti Bronzer in the shade Laguna to my list. This bronzer is the absolute deepest, darkest bronzer I have been able to use that still looks natural.
Love what you see? Retail price is $59. Don’t forget you can score this item at a discount during the Sephora VIB sale! Click through the jump for more photos, and a Laguna swatch.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Makeup Removing Wipes review, be sure to surf over!I’ve been having fun playing with some of the products Aveeno passed along! If you haven’t already read my
There are more items in the Aveeno Positively Radiant Family, however. I’ve been using the Aveeno Skin Brightening Daily Scrub regularly for weeks now. I’m almost done with my 5 oz tube! This physical scrub is a great way to turn over those dead skin cells to reveal the more youthful, hydrated skin beneath. The texture of this scrub is extremely refined, so it’s gentle for a physical scrub. Best of all–for the sensitive skinned like me–the formula is noncomedogenic and hypoallergenic.
Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector is a spot treatment. I’m jealous of anyone who doesn’t know what that means! This treatment contains the Aveeno Active Naturals Total Soy Complex to correct uneven skin tone, and also contains Vitamin A. This brightening cream is great to use as a first step in an evening moisturizing regimen, topped with your favorite moisturizer.
MSRP is $6.99 for the Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub, and $14.99 for the Aveeno Positively Radiant Targeted Tone Corrector.
Retailers include Amazon.com, Target.com, and Drugstore.com. Click HERE to read more about it at Aveeno!

I’m in the mood for SPRING and SUMMER readers! I wanted to share the spoils of my recent @ToryBurch #Haul @Shopbop!
THE BAG: Every year, I always keep my eye out for a straw bag to carry through the warm-weather months. My love for straw accessories started in my 20s, when a friend chastised me for carrying a heavy leather tote on 90 degree days. She was right! It just LOOKS funny! Here in AZ the temps are already in the 90s, so I was happy to find the Tory Burch York Straw Buckle Tote! The Tory Burch York design is roomy, with one extremely large center pocket that zips, two roomy open sections, and a large zipped side pocket with several open pockets as well. It’s not just attractive, it’s the ultimate in organization. This tote is ROOMY but a lightweight 28 oz. Metallic gold Saffiano leather trim adds an upscale-resort vibe to a streamlined design. This bag can be carried as a satchel, or over the shoulder.
THE WALLET: I’m all about YELLOW this season, but only as an accent color. I thought the perfect way to add this color to my day to day look was through this Tory Burch York Zip Continental Wallet in “Sunshine”. I’m a long-time fan of Tory Burch wallets, and there are SO many card slots (16) in this design, it’s perfect for me! The wallet also features an interior zipped coin purse and a wrist strap for hand-free carrying when you want to travel light!
Retail is $195 at Shopbop. Runner up yellow accessory included the Tory Burch Dipped Beach Small Slouchy Cosmetic case ($78) that I simply adore, or of course the adorable Reva Key Fob in Sunshine ($60) that also makes a wonderful gift for Tory lovers.
THE SNEAKERS: My favorite pair of Nike running sneakers look like a shark has gotten to them, so this online shopper got to work to find a replacement. I’ve had such a hard time finding a comfortable sneaker! As a shot in the dark, I purchased the new Tory Burch Colorblock Suede Trainer in Gray and was so surprised by how comfortable they are! I love that this sneaker is crafted from suede, and the back of the heel features a trendy colorblock design and a Tory Burch logo.
Retail price is $195, runner up designs included the Tory Burch Colorblock Suede Trainer in Navy ($195) and the Tory Burch Rubber Logo Suede Trainer in Masai Red ($195).
It seems like lifetimes ago, but I was once a road-warrior. Trust me, those of us flying regularly deserve to use the term “warrior”.
I rose in the early AM on Monday to hop a jet, sometimes having to wake as early as 3 am. By the time I landed, it already felt like I had worked a full day, but no. There was at a minimum a 9 hour workday facing me before I got to check into my hotel room. Sometimes I was up a full 24 hours before I had the opportunity to sleep.
Among the many challenges of travel is missing the creature comforts of home. This long-time makeup lover had to abandon a vast selection in favor of a succinct collection that would suit my daily needs and fit easily in my carry-on. Each week I had only two lip colors to choose from, two or three eye pencils, and a tiny neutral shadow compact (or no shadow at all).
The founders of Stowaway Cosmetics are familiar with this conundrum. It doesn’t only affect frequent travelers, but women who exercise at a gym, need to reapply at work, or heck, anyone who wants to tote an assortment of cosmetics with her day-to-day. The brand is working to reduce makeup bulk by offering a line of petite products with luxe formulas.
