'NEW Jewelery!! House of Harlow, Nordstrom, etc'

If you have looked at any of my past "Jewelry Wishlist" posts, you will know I'm pretty much obsessed with House of Harlow 1960 Jewelry =)  About a week ago I just happened to stumble upon some pieces that have been on my wishlist, on SALE!! Of course I'm a sucker for a sale ;) so I picked up a few things!

House of Harlow 1960 Jewelry

Yep, I got 3 HOH rings!!! YAY! I will warn you that these run a bit small. I wish I could have gotten them in a size 8 so I could wear them on my middle and index finger, but all the sale had were 7's! Anyway, I absolutely love all of them. They have such a nice weight to them! Really, I just can't get enough =)

I also picked up a few pieces from Nordstrom while I was in Chicago...


I loooove me some wrap bracelets ;) haha  I've been making them myself, but at such a great price (like $10 maybe?) and with such an array of colors I just had to get this one!!

Are you into any jewelry trends?? Have you checked out HOH jewelry?!

'Review: Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation SPF 20'...UPDATED

I have been meaning to do this review for ages now! To try and help give you a better idea of what the Vichy Dermablend foundation is like, I will be comparing it to Estee Lauder's Doublewear Foundation a bit. I know lots of you have tried that one out, so hopefully it will be helpful!!

Let me just start out by saying that Vichy Dermablend Corrective Foundation is my HOLY GRAIL foundation. So yes, this will be a mostly positive review =)

Okay, here we go!

'Chicago Sephora Goodies!'

While I was in Chicago the past week, I couldn't help but make a quick stop in Sephora and pick up a few things... =)

Sephora Haul
I legitimately needed another bottle of my St. Tropez self tan! Ahhh to be tan again ;)

Ok, on to Dior...

Dior Shine Lipstick #465 "Singuliere"
Dior Shine Lipstick #465 "Singuliere"

I love this lippie!! It's just a nice sheer (buildable) pink. That's it!

Sephora by OPI "Safari luxe" mini nail poish set

I have yet to try out any of these shades, but you will be the first to know when I do!! They are all a bit deeper in color than the picture is showing, the first is more khaki looking etc.

Have you found anything good in Sephora lately?!

'NOTD: China Glaze, Shocking PiNK!'

For some reason I felt the need to put on an uber girly polish this time around. =) What's more girly in the summer than NEON PiNK?! (ok maybe a barbie pink is the most girly, but we are talking summer here!)

China Glaze's "Shocking Pink"...

Does anyone have any tips on how to capture color more accurately with a camera??! I suppose it varies depending on what camera you have, but I am a total fail when it comes to getting brights to show up true to color. Sure, the color looks pretty in the picture, but this is NEON pink!!! Grrrrrr  >:(  haha

'MAC Goodies (Surf Baby! & more)'

I have been meaning to get this post up for a couple weeks now... I could use the excuse of being super busy, or that I was out of town for almost a week (because I was both) but let's be honest, I just haven't felt like it =) However, I am back from my short holiday and ready to dive back into our wonderful blog world!

'NOTD: China Glaze'

If you like neon nail polishes, you NEED this one. I'm telling you it is freaking AMAZING. I wish my camera could pick up the color correctly... It's probably just me though, I think I need a camera lesson! haha

Here is my attempt anyway. It's China Glaze "Sun Worshiper".

China Glaze "Sun Worshiper"

In person this color is an insanely bright neon yellow-based orange. I'm telling you, it's looks practically glow in the dark!!

China Glaze "Sun Worshiper"

I tried taking a picture sort of in the dark. You can (sort of) tell that the color is still super intense!

*sigh*...... You really need to check this color out in person. It took me about 4 coats to get it totally opaque and not streaky, but the color is TOTALLY worth it!  =)  I don't get back-ups of hardly anything, but I'm getting another bottle of this one just in case!!

Have you seen this color yet?!

'Upcoming Collection!! CHANEL A/W 2011: Illusion D'Ombre'

As soon as I saw pictures of this upcoming Chanel collection I knew I HAD to share them!! I won't keep you in suspense, here are some sneak peeks of the Chanel A/W 2011 "Illusion D'Ombre" Collection...

Chanel A/W 2011 "Illusion D'Ombre" Collection

How pretty are those colors?! Now here are the products that I am most looking forward to checking out, and most skeptical of as well!

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre Eye Shadows

In this collection Chanel is coming out with 6 "whipped gel" eye shadows that have a shimmery finish. Straight off you are probably thinking about MAC's Big Bounce eye shadows and how well those went over... NOT! But these have to be better, right?? First of all, just looking at them I would imagine the texture will be quite different. And I mean, this is CHANEL we are talking about after all, they aren't capable of producing a sub-par product (maybe that is an exaggeration).  =)

I can't wait to get my hands on those eye shadows and find out for myself!!

Chanel A/W 2011 Le Vernis nail polish left to right: "Graphite", "Peridot", "Quartz"

You know I couldn't finish off this post without drooling over the nail polish ;)  At first look I thought Quartz would be my must-have. However, I've seen some not-so-great swatches of these and I'm now on the fence as to whether I will be picking any of them up. Hmm...

There is a lot more to the collection, and you see additional pics and descriptions at Cafe Makeup. All pictures and info are via this amazing site!

So what do you think of this upcoming collection?! I want to hear your thoughts on it!
