OPI Nail Colors

I lust after these nail colors! I always love a nice light color for everyday, or with some sparkle for more festive occasions. Of course, ruby red is always a classic. If you're fair, like me, the aubergine color would be a great wearable alternative to the black nail trend. You can still go dark, but have a bit of beautiful color to your nails. If you want to go black, OPI has several beautiful blacks that you can wear.

NYX Cosmetics - Preview

It's always fun to find out about new or soon-to-be-released products, don't you think? Naturally! Well, here's a preview of some products by NYX Cosmetics that have yet to be released. I'm most excited about the lipstick. In 96 colors, there should be something for most everyone. Perhaps I'll find my perfect red lippy after all!

Lip Shimmer - Merlot

Yup, once again I am the nightingale that sings Burt's Bees praises. Please bear with me. You see, I've recently discovered something really cool about the merlot shade of lip shimmer.

It's a multi-tasker, & you know how we all love a great multi-tasker. How is it a multi-tasker you ask?

Well, not only is it a very pretty gloss, but it also works great as a cheek color. You just dot it on & blend for a healthy flush of color. Now that's getting more bang for your buck! (or 2 or 3 or 4, lol)

Burt's Bees

I think it's a fairly well known fact among my readers that I'm a huge fan of Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers & Lip Balm. Yet, there are several of their products I haven't tried, but would like to. Especially after reading some of the testimonials.

For example, this is what one lady said about their Citrus Facial Scrub: "I have been converted to your facial care products! I have had horrible skin for years...I was always breaking out and I tried every prescription medication I could get. I started using the Citrus Facial Scrub last month and in days my skin cleared up! It looks and feels healthy. I have been telling all my friends. Thanks!"

Another lady had this to say of their Moisturizing Night Creme: "About 7 years ago I committed myself to cruelty-free products and have been paying a FORTUNE for stuff that kind of works, doesn't work, causes allergic reactions or just plain smells bad. Oh, how I wish I had some of that money back so that I could turn around and invest it in your products, particularly your Beeswax Moisturizing Night Creme! It's almost impossible to find a product that just moisturizes. I don't need sunscreen and 30 thousand other chemicals slathered on my face while I sleep. I just need my skin to be babied from all the day's stresses. The Night Creme is perfect! I'm so in love!"

Still another had this to say of their Tinted Moisturizer: "I am a longtime fan of Burt's. Frankly, I haven't tried a product yet that I didn't like. In fact, I recently purchased a tube of your Burt's Bees Tinted Moisturizer. It is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks a lot!"

These all sounded interesting to me & the praise they've received sounds promising. Have any of you, my readers, tried any of these? If yes, what do you think of them? I want some 2nd opinions, so I know if I should try these or not.

Cute Furry Case 4 Handhelds

I love having a cute & stylish case to hold my various handheld devices, don't you? Like this adorable Nicole Miller case with a cute, furry print. Very cute & stylish. Another plus is that it fits a variety of handheld devices, be that a cell phone or an iPod. My 5G 30GB iPod fits just fine. There is one minor qualm that I have with this case, I wish the strap was a tad longer. Other than that, I feel this is a very cute, stylish, & handy way to carry your handheld devices! Get this at PrimaCases.com for $34.95.

Fan Brush

I got my fan brush! My jumbo fan brush, actually. It came w/a nice protective case that helps the brush retain its shape. I love it, it's so soft & fluffy, perfect for applying just a hint of blush on the apples of the cheeks!

More Headband Scarves

I've found some more cute headband scarves at MagicScarf.com. Animal prints & black & white are hot right now. And as far as I'm concerned, you can't go wrong with polka-dots. Here's some of the great prints I found at only $6 a piece.

FashMatch: New Features

FashMatch, the cool site that lets you match different items to create new outfits, has launched a new feature called ASK where you can ask and answer fashion and beauty related questions. People can also vote for questions they like and they can answer questions too! They've also added a MEET section, a place where you can find like-minded fashmatch voters. I tried these features out, it looks pretty cool & I think it'll be a great addition to the FashMatch Community!

Glitz & Glamour Boutique

I've discovered a new online boutique that sells accessories galore! I found some items that I thought were interesting & cute. The following pictures are a sampling of what's available.

The leopard bag is on-trend right now, because it gives a nod to 2 trends, animal print & patent leather. I also love the cute plaid bag & the croc skin look of the black bag.

I'm seeing headscarves all over lately, very cute.

Metallics are on-trend, & I can't get enough of polka-dots!
