Liz Earle Natural Finish Pressed Powder 02 Sheer Ivory 1

.

Founded in the UK in 1995, Liz Earle has been a well-established skincare brand for years. Many of its skincare products that I have come across are antioxidant-rich and without the irritating alcohol or fragrant plant oils. In recent years, the brand has branched out into fragrance, haircare, and makeup. In 2011, I reviewed Sheer Skin Tint SPF15, which is one of the first products in the brand’s makeup range. Today I am reviewing Natural Finish Pressed Powder in 02 Sheer Ivory and Healthy Glow Powder Blushes in 02 Blossom and 06 Nectar.

.

Paul and Joe Sale Winter 2011 1

.

First of all, apologies for the delay in posting about this stash update.

I have to admit that, ever since the last Paul & Joe winter sale, I had been waiting for the next one. (Paul & Joe does have items on sale during the summer sale, but the lineup is usually not as impressive, and I didn’t purchase any sale item last summer.) There were a lot of items on sale for the winter sale 2011, and, for the first time (that I can remember), holiday limited-edition items were sold at reduced prices at Paul & Joe counters right on the other side of Christmas.

The waiting is over, but are the new items worth the anticipation? Today I am reviewing Blend Color Eyeshadow in 08 Mizuaoi and Face Color Palette in EX-01.
