What's new in PINK??

Those of us girly girls always seem to notice anything in Pink.

Pink Beauty

The packaging, of course, immediately caught my eye. I have not tried the cosmetics yet but I have read that they are top notch. The line-up includes products for lips, cheeks and eyes. 

To learn more about Pink Beauty, check out their website at Right now, you can only order them through if you are in the United States.

About "Pink Beauty:"
Taking its inspiration from the colour pink’s soft, delicate hue, Pink Beauty was created by accomplished makeup artist, April Jacob, to allow every glamour girl to emanate her very own irresistibly feminine “inner pink glow”–that ‘je ne sais quoi’ that makes her exude confidence in a fabulously chic way.

Mariah Carey's Lucious Pink Fragrance

I love the pink packaging and ad especially the perfume bottle with the pink butterfly top. I have not tried the fragrance but the bottle would look so wonderful on my dresser next to all the other lovely glass fragrance bottles.

The email ad I received states:
Visit the Fragrance page to experience the ethereal fragrance, and wrap yourself in a halo of sparkling Bellini, velvety Pink Peony and warm Sun-Kissed Woods. This radiant new scent is a luscious blend of notes as enveloping as Mariah's voice.

Available in fine department stores and at

Last week I walking thru Bloomingdales when I saw a new fragrance display from Lancome. The sales lady explained that Bloomingdales is the exclusive US distributor. Plus this is a first for Lancome by doing an initial product release  in the US instead of France.

The tag line is "You are unique; you are Magnifique". The celebrity spokesperson is Anne Hathaway.

I definitely agree that Magnifique is very daring for a mainstream department store perfume brand. Very sexy and feminine. I was asked, more than a few times, what fragrance I was wearing.

A Day at The Races

My girlfriends and I spend a day at Arlington Race Track in Chicago in June. This was something I had never done before.
There was a card of 9 races. Most of the time we spent in the enclosed and air-conditioned box (with a large window facing the track) where we had a tasty lunch and a drinks. The last 30 seconds of each race were entertaining. But basically this was a wonderful social outing.

As you all can see I'm the blonde in the blue silk top in the middle of the picture. We presented the trophy to the winning jockey after the last race.

I always thought it would be fun to go to Royal Ascot in the UK for the horse races, dress to the nines and wear a big floppy hat (like in the picture). Arlington Park was a lot less formal!

Mascara: Long and Gorgeous Lashes

Are you confused by all the different types and brands of mascara?  I love long and sexy lashes. I try something new every few months to see if there is something better.

The other day I was browsing at Sephora and found a truly creative idea.  it is called the "Lash Stash". The Last Stash allows you to test-drive a new mascara every day until you find your true lash love. It contains seven travel-size black mascaras from your favorite brands, for the longest, lushest, most-volumized lashes ever.

The kit includes a 0.14 oz Benefit A Little Bit BADgal Lash in Black, a 0.02 oz Blinc Kiss Me Mascara in Black, a 0.15 oz LORAC Publicity Stunt Lashes in Black, a 0.12 oz Smashbox Bionic Mascara in Black, a 0.24 oz Stila Multi-Effect Mascara in Black, a 1.0 oz Sephora Brand Lash Plumper in Black, and a 0.17 oz Too Faced Lash Injection in Black.

One other interesting new item i received an email about this week. It's the first vibrating power mascara and its from Lancome. It will be available in stores this fall. I can't wait to try it and see if it really makes difference.
