Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No. 22 Pale Barley Review, Comparisons

This Spring Burberry Beauty is releasing a new eye shadow shade called Pale Barley ($29), No.22 in their permanent lineup of Sheer Eyeshadows.  Pale Barley seems like a simple enough color, but it is actually difficult to describe.  No matter how you slice it, this is one gorgeous shadow!

Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle Liquid Foundation

I have been using Rouge Bunny Rouge Milk Aquarelle on and off for over a year now, more often in the colder weather. I mostly use tinted moisturizers (Laura Mercier or Rouge Bunny Rouge) or a very light foundation (Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua), but reach for foundations on days when I just need more coverage, or I am going out for the evening and want a more finished look. I have a few different foundations, but Milk Aquarelle is the one I come back to the most because of its lovely gel-cream texture, and the simple fact that after I remove it my skin feels softer, smoother, and more hydrated. It is my favorite special occasion foundation.

Preview: Balearic Love Collection - BECCA Cosmetics

I wanted to share some promotional images from Becca Cosmetics upcoming Winter 2011 Collection called Balearic Love.  I got them from Becca's Hong Kong Facebook page - I don't know exactly when the collection is coming to the U.S. or how much the products will be, but I am working on getting that info.  I know that it will be out this month (December) in both the U.S. and the U.K., so it should be available soon from our friends at Zuneta who now offer super affordable shipping rates worldwide.
