It’s a fashion pulse flash of the week! I’m really trying to start my new year’s resolutions early and get in the regular habit of posting the “fashion pulse flash” segment on the same day each week, so that you know when to look forward the latest in fashion and beauty news, and what I’ve tested, experienced, and loved from the past seven days!
The latest from essie has arrived! Two new luxeeffects shades, perfect for holiday 2013 are here — jazzy jubilant, a chromatic confetti-like glitter, and sparkle on top, a white shimmer shade with luminescent and holographic sparkle. Wear alone or layer with your favorite wintery polish shade. Each bottle retails for $8.50, available at essie.com and fine salons and retailers nationwide.
Are you still on the quest for some holiday fragrance options? Let me share with you some new favorites that I discovered with Elizabeth Arden fragrances! Some of my absolute favorites include John Varvatos Classic (a woody oriental), the classic White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor (sensual floral), BCBGMAXAZRIA bon genre (a mysterious, fruity scent) Elizabeth Arden Untold and Red Door, Minajesty Nicki Minaj (sultry, fruity & floral), and Our Moment One Direction. Quite a range, I know, but there’s certainly a signature scent for everyone on your gift list!
You know what could be a very thoughtful gift? A travel makeup brush set. Or, you know what else? An at-home spa set. Or how about a luxe candle, sophisticated shaving set or ultra-rich lotion? They all sound pretty good to me, and as gifts for my loved ones, so I’m going to suggest we head on over to Nordstrom.com for them, since it was the place that gave me all of these ideas! Shop the Nordstrom beauty spot for great gifty items from brands such as Diptyque, Jack Black, Kiehl’s Since 1851, Bliss, Nordstrom’s own label, and more for singular items and limited-edition, special holiday collections. This travel-size atomizer, available in five different colors for just $5 makes an awesome stocking stuffer, and so does this Soft Touch Foot File, and beauty sponge. Plus, with free shipping AND returns, with NO minimum purchase, it really can’t get any better, or easier, than this!
The latest from the Garnier Clean+ Skin Care line is here! These ten new skicare products will make your skin bright, hydrated, and of course flawless have been introduced, and I’m curious to find out which one you’re dying to try first!
