Aerin Lauder's New Collection

Estée Lauder's granddaughter, Aerin, has always been a great business woman and an entrepreneur. Now she is starting her very own cosmetics line based on having all of your essentials at your fingertips.

There will be two collections, the essentials and fall. The fall collection is broken down further. There is the Weekend palette which is lighter and the Weekday, which is slightly more vibrant.

The essentials collection has some great basics like hand and body lotion, lip conditioner, powdered foundation, bronzer, blush, and a brush set.

Fall weekday pallet. Both pallets have two eye shadow colours, a blush and an illuminating powder. There are also a coordinating gloss and lipstick for each that come separately.

The collection is a kinda pricey ($70 for the pallet, $30 for lipsticks and glosses, $148 for the beautiful brush set), but the target audience is the typical Neiman Marcus only the go customer. It should be in stores by the end of August.

Chanel Fluer de Locus Eyeshadow Quad #35 Rives

Some older brothers are just so darn awesome. Well, not all the time, but when they buy you the limited edition Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad from the Fluer de Locus collection then they are definitely pretty awesome.

I know I tend to wear a lot of browns and simple neutrals when it comes to eyeshadows, but I really like this little baked eyeshadow set. There is a significant variance between the shades of brown so I think it is pretty fun to work with.

This collection was originally released in Asia and was released over here exclusively with Nordstrom for their anniversary sale.

This picture is taken in the sunlight. The lightest shade is barely noticeable, but it makes for a good highlighter while blending the shades together.

Here's my brown smokey eye. 

While here I have a much lighter ombre look.

And here's how I look with two different eyes! I'm surprised by what a difference it makes.
