Weekend Bits + Bobs…7/26/14 Edition

Above: A Beauty Professor profile is currently live on Fashionlush!
Hello, dear readers…I hope your weekend has been wonderful thus far!  This post is dedicated to a bit of beauty this and that; kindly scroll on for all of the details…

Above: Erica Stolman's lifestyle blog has a gorgeous design aesthetic.
First up, I am honored to currently be featured on the brilliant lifestyle blog, Fashionlush. I met the lovely Fashionlush Editor-in-Chief, Erica, a few months ago in Dallas and she subsequently reached out to do a Beauty Professor profile.  The post is chock full of beauty talk and I love her blog layout…so creative and aesthetically pleasing!  Check out the full post HERE

clé de peau eyeshadow quads fall 2014 collection
Above: Behold! The many shades (32 to be exact) of the Cle de Peau eyeshadow quads for the Fall 2014 collection.
Next up, I am over the moon to be in possession of a bevy of key products from the Cle de Peau Fall 2014, namely a host of exquisite eyeshadow quads (to be officially released on August 1st and currently available online at Saks 5th Avenue) and the new Radiant Fluid Foundation.  I spent a great part of Friday taking pictures of swatches and can't wait to share the final results with you next week!  Here's a preview…these shadows are buttery smooth, ultra-pigmented and well worth the splurge  ; )

Diptyque skincare
Above: Did you know that Diptyque has a skincare line? 
Over the past few days, I've been experimenting with the brand new Diptyque skincare line.  Two immediate standouts for me are the Nourishing Cleansing Balm (silky and effective) and the Protective Moisturizing Lotion for the Face, which is incredibly light (excellent as a first base on warm days) with the most intoxicating scent.  So far, both have played well with my insanely sensitive skin and I will make sure to update after I've tried all five products in the line, currently available at Neiman Marcus.

jouer summer 2014 products

Finally, the Jouer Summer 2014 Collection has arrived at Beauty Professor headquarters!  The radiant Luminizing Cheek Tint in Rosy Glow adapts with one's chemistry to create the most flattering pale pink sheen and the delicate, ultra-hydrating Lip Sheer SPF 15 in Sheer Rosy Stain self-adjusts to the most flattering natural pink.  More (including swatches) on this dynamic duo in the very near future!

Bottom Line: So many lovely things in the works at Beauty Professor…with new Fall 2014 Collections and fresh product discoveries emerging daily, my camera is working overtime to capture the wonderment.  A barrage of details coming soon! 

What is new with YOU?

  1. You've read my mind yet again lol!! I think we share a brain sometimes! I have 2 of the CdP quads in my Saks cart but was waiting for reviews (I didn't have the best luck with the old quads...) but the new instillations look amazing! I was Googling the radiant foundation this morning and had no luck finding reviews so I can't wait to read your thoughts/see swatches, because you are my go-to authority on foundation! I'm also so stoked for the new Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting foundation...I ordered from NM yesterday and I'm hoping the shades run consistent with the Traceless stick formula ;) we shall see! Thanks bunches for all you do, I'm so excited for your upcoming CdP posts!

    1. Hello Rebekah!

      I love it ; ) I am in the midst of labeling my CdP quad photos (it was A LOT of swatching!) and should hopefully have the post up by tonight. So far, I am completely impressed by the texture and pigmentation of these shadows...truly amazing and worth the splurge! Also, the Radiant foundation should be available August 1st but I think it can be ordered from Saks right now (I have a link to it in my most recent post). I am off to NM today and hope that I encounter all of the new TF products in person...that would be dreamy, indeed!

      Thanks for your kind words about my blog...I so appreciate your support!

  2. I am really enjoying reading your blog! Thank you for wonderful reviews! Cle de peau radiant foundation and the rest of new release is available in my Topanga Nordstrom in woodland hills already since last Sunday. I got two eyeshadow quads in 305 and I believe 306 (with a silver shade). Currently testing and really enjoying all the new primers and foundation. I am in number I10 and B10. Love them all. And got a concealer brush at Saks Beverly hills about a couple weeks ago. Nice too. I actually really love some old Cle de Peau quads as well. I have about five or six of them, All you need is to use a good primer, in my case it is By Terry Hyuluronic eye primer. Works fantastic with CDP shadows. Anyway, really looking forward to read your review about CDP. I LOVE THIS LINE:)))

    1. Hello...thanks so much for your kind feedback! So glad to hear that you are loving the new CdP releases...the eyeshadows (which are now up on my blog) are luxuriously pigmented and such a joy to wear. I have yet to be disappointed by anything in the CdP truly lives up to the hype!

      Thanks for sharing what is working for you lately and I hope you have a beautiful rest of the week...xx,
