Summer Cheeks

Nothing is worse for me than finding blush and bronzer. I'm fair skinned with pink undertones. These are all swatched pretty heavily but create a nice glow to the face. I'm still debating Chanel's new bronzer in bronze rose which would also double as a blush as it is pretty rosey.

Summer Eyes

Nars Soft Touch Shadow Pencil Hollywoodland (swatched heavy and then in the middle light)
Soft Touch Shadow Pencil provides smooth, long-wearing eye color with easy application. It can be used for shading the lid, smudging along the lash line, or highlighting the brow bone or inner corner of the eye. It can be easily blended, making it the ideal base for layering with a powder shadow for increased color intensity.
I'm a big fan of putting it under the lash line on Sundays for a bit of a brightening affect. It's super easy.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Rose Plantine
This new waterproof eyeliner formula delivers long-lasting definition with a twist of the wrist: Color winds up when you need it, winds down when you don't. A built-in sharpener at the opposite end detaches for quick refreshes.
I wear this everyday and bought two back ups since it is limited edition. I can not speak highly enough about it.

Butter London - all hail the queen, lady muck and snog

Ulta is finally stocking Butter London - so I picked up a few shades:

I absolutely LOVE all hail the queen. I thought it would be too sparkly but it's very neutral and safe for work. Lady Muck is also great. It applies better than China Glaze Sea Spray. I'm not really feeling Snog. I don't think it applies very evenly.

Summer's Hydrating Lipsticks

So many choices in lipstick this summer! They all seem to be hydrating and somewhat sheer. I purchased the Chubby sticks a few months ago but added some Chanel and Dior during the various friends and family sales. Saks just launched their friends and family- Friend2 for 10% off cosmetics! Here are my favorites:

(up to down/left to right)
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Monte-Carlo - great for a beige summer outfit
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm Super Strawberry - currently being ignored due to my obsession with monte-carlo
Dior Addict Lipstick It Pink - very bright and fun!
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy - a bit neutral for a neon outfit
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm Woppin Watermelon - addicted to this one!

Chanel Miami Peach swatch

I picked up Chanel Miami Peach exclusive to Neiman Marcus this weekend. It applies like a dream and is a bit of a jelly. I love the gold sparkles.I am thinking of layering it over a pinker polish. Possibly Essie Peepshow for Jcrew since it is also a jelly.

JCrew head to toe

I am super confused why these pink pants are in the JCrew Fall 2011 Collection... when I already bought them, but they are. I broke them out this week with a silk striped shirt and navy blazer - due to the amazing NYC weather (minus rain.)

Dior graphic berry and rock coat

Sorry for the horrible lighting.....

Dior Graphic Berry and Graphic Berry with Dior Rock Coat.

I found Graphic Berry to only be that perfect shade of pink in subway lighting. In the office and at home it looked too red. Rock Coat was gorgeous over it. Very shimmery with the pink/red peeking through.

New Nail Polish

New purchases! On a pink kick! and threw in a perfect red for good measure:

(Dior Masai Red, Dior Graphic Berry, Essie Exotic Liras, Essie Fruit Sangria)

Essie Peep show for JCrew is on my nails today as it hit high-50s this weekend. It's a bit jelly-like which I love:
