I sorted this week’s “New…” widgets a little differently — limited edition items vs. permanent ones. Nothing’s double-checked or cross-referenced, so don’t blame me if a few of the items are on the wrong list, but this should be more or less correct!
I love the look of the new Clarins mono eyeshadows. They’re one of the last (or perhaps the very last?) Clarins products to be repackaged and relaunched, and the brand did not disappoint! (Review coming soon for ome of the shades; just need it to get light out in Edmonton again.)
The product that surprised me the most to see, though, was YSL’s Touche Éclat foundation — I just figured that if they were planning on doing one, they’d have done it sooner, you know? It’s not exactly news (anymore) that the illuminator has done well for itself! Better late than never, I suppose, though, and foundations have been “in” again this year.
Limited edition items
From NARS, Fall 2012; from Chantecaille, Safari Chic (elephants!); from Lancôme, Midnight Roses… the list goes on. Dior Purple Revolution (and hey; if you’re going to have a revolution in violet, I am not going to complain); MAC Illustrated (Nordstrom/The Bay exclusives, if I’m not mistaken); Estée Lauder Violet Underground.
Oh, and then there’s…
Jouer has launched at Nordstrom, which brings it quite a bit closer to the cosmetics forefront — and I hope it does well, based on the (good) things I keep hearing about the line!
The department store put up a number of MAC skincare minis online recently as well, which (as a lover of travel-sized skincare) I just had to point out. Minis are great for travel, of course, but they’re perfect for trying out new products, too! (I’m not really sure how MAC Illustrated worked its way into this one, but… just ignore those two, yeah?)
I hope you’re having a lovely Sunday :) Talk to you all soon — sorry I’ve been AWOL recently, but I’m trying my best to keep it from interrupting our every-day or every-other-day posting schedule!
