Dior Vernis Dauphine Pink (253) Swatches and Review

Wednesday, August 31, 2011

Dauphine Pink (253) is a new and permanent shade in Dior's Vernis Collection. I'm a bit confused on what the name should be since I see both Rose Dauphine and Dauphine Pink listed on the box.  This retails for $22USD and can be purchased at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks counters.


Weekend Edition: Summer is a thing of the past

Friday, August 26, 2011

With all the recent Fall Collections released this past week, one would think summer is surely a thing of the past.  For those of you who live too far from the mall or simply don't have the time to make a visit, here are a few lot of things to look forward to:

MAC Me Over Collection officially launched on 8/25/2011.  The Collection features 51 pieces ranging from nude eyeshadows to bold and vampy lipsticks.   My personal favorite is Stunner, a soft pink blush that is oh-so-pretty.


Shadestick fans, there are 4 new shades for you to take home.


Burberry Fall 2011 Collection Swatches - Nude Rose, Nude Cashmere, Fresh Glow

Last month, Burberry launched the new Fall 2011 Collection which I posted here with in-store swatches from Kristy.  Nude Rose and Nude Cashmere are 2 new shades added to the permanent Lip Cover Satin Lipstick collection. The Fall Collection also introduced a brand new Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base. The lipsticks retail for $30USD and Fresh Glow is $48USD.

You can purchase all 3 on Nordstrom's website or contact Kristy Hoffman from the Nordstrom San Francisco counter. She is extremely helpful and is one of the few SAs who can show you the products in real-time with the QuickShop app for Iphones, Ipod Touch, and Ipad.

Essie recently released 6 new shades for fall in the Brand New Bag Collection.


I only picked up 4 out of the six shades.  The two I did not pick up are Case Study and Carry On.  Case Study is a khaki green that leans a bit yellow on my skin tone.  Carry on is a deep burgundy wine, a shade that I've seen released in previous collections.


Weekend Edition: Shop Til You Drop

Saturday, August 13, 2011

Moving forward, there will be newly added weekend edition posts to naturalNchicmakeup.  The weekend edition will include new product information, cheap finds, food, and whatever I happen to find during my weekend excursions.  Most of the time I tweet pictures and thoughts of makeup, but I do realize that not everyone has a Twitter account. Hopefully the weekend edition posts will capture everything that was also tweeted throughout the week  for your enjoyment!

First up is exciting news from Guerlain's Holiday 2011 Collection.  Get your wallets ready for a brand new powder spray, pressed powder/blush, Meteorites Perles, 2 Rouge Automatique lipstick shades, and Ecrin 4 Couleurs. Please credit back if you are going to re-post the image.

My Strange Addiction - Samples, Samples, Samples

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

TLC recently came out with a new show called My Strange Addiction, where professionals step in to help those with peculiar obsessions.  Some of these obsessions range from eating couches to bathing in bleach.  Compared to the cases found on the show, my obsession is well, a lot less serious.  However, it suckers me in every time and makes me weak in the knees. My strange addiction? Samples.
