Beauty Updates!

Beauty Trend: Shades of Purple
The softest versions of violet have been seen all over the spring/summer runways for 2010. Everywhere from lilac eyes at Dior, lilac eyes and lips at Michael Kors, cloudy eggplant nails at Vena Cava and eyes again at Versace, the color was just all over. It's a pretty but fun color that if done in a light lilac can be worn everyday (any eyeshadow I wear for the day is always a light purple) and at night in a more dramatic way. A subtle way to take part in this trend if you don't feel comfortable doing eyeshadow or lips, is to purchase Givenchy's Phenomen’Eyes Effet Extensionin in Purple Impression, which is a navy/dark-purple colored mascara for $29

Beauty News:
The From Our Lips edition of MAC makeup donates all of its proceeds from the limited-edition lipstick sales to the MAC Aids Fund. This year, Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga are the newest campaign stars of Viva Glam. Cyndi's featured lipstick has a rose-colored hue to it and Lady Gaga's is a bright bubblegum pink. The lipsticks will be available by the end of March.

(I checked them both out...I like Lady Gaga's better!)

in 2008, ChloƩ launched their perfume, Eau de Parfum, which smells of roses (I love this perfume) and then next their Eau de Parfum Intense. The first perfume targeted the scent of a rose at midday and the second, the smell of the rose at dusk. The third one, being released this week, is called Eau de Toilette, and smells of roses covered by morning-dew (think freesia and iris).
