Okay everyone, are you ready for this new and awesome set of polishes?
We have been having fun with the lovely Muppets Collection by OPI, some crazy bold colors from the Nicki Minaj Collection and of course the pretty spring pastels from Essie, but I'm pretty sure that China Glaze is going to soar high in the sky with these gorgeously wearable colors.
Here are some awesome close ups of the bottles for you:
|DRESS ME UP|
|HOOK AND LINE|
|LUXE & LUSH|
|SMOKE AND ASHES|
I'm personally really excited about Dress Me Up, Foi Gras, and Smoke and Ashes. Which ones are you guys going to run out and get on March 1st??
Let the countdown begin!
(I was debating on being awesome and making a joke about running into the center pit and grabbing your favorite color before the other tributes got to it, but I decided to spare you. You're welcome)

If you are as huge of a fan of AMC's Mad Men as I am, then you are going to be ecstatic over this new Estee Lauder collection. Even though there aren't many pieces, I think that also just proves how important the basics were back then: red lips, a good blush, and GO!
The colors are reminiscent of Estee Lauder's actual collection from the 1960's, which is awesome, and I think it's the perfect company to launch a line like this just in time for the show's 5th season premier.
Above: meet Cherry ($25), the Mad Men inspired lipstick that is a hot cherry red. I'm loving the gold packaging!
Below: this blush is a creme rouge and is called Evening Rose ($40). It is a dewy rose color and comes in a gold and turquoise compact.
I this these are awesome staples for any woman's makeup drawer. I'm thinking that lipstick needs to belong in mine...okay, maybe the blush too.

Everyone who knows me knows that I rave about this product. I always carry four of them in my purse at all times, and people are asking me, "Why do you need so many of those?" It's because almost every color in this collection is SO wearable for every day occasions. Some have more pigments than others, but they all feel super moisturizing and aren't too overwhelming for daily wear.
I wanted to share with you some of the ones I own and love, and hopefully it convinces some of you to go out and grab one (or three) to try out for yourselves.
One of my favorites is Candy Apple! I did a post about it a week ago and already have two friends that have gone out and purchased it, constantly raving about it. It's a sheer red that can be layered for more intensity, yet it is a perfect moisturizing and shiny color that can look good on anyone.
Berry Smoothie is one of my go to everyday colors. It is a pink-mauve color that has some shimmer in it for added shine. It seems a bit thicker than some of the others when you apply it, which is good because you only need to apply a little bit of it.
Raspberry Pie is a really fun color! It is one of the more pigmented colored in the collections. It is a raspberry, pink pigment with no shimmer that would be great for an evening out.
Peach Parfait is my ultimate favorite from the collection! It is a shimmery, peachy- pink that reminds me of a gloss, but goes on like a chapstick. I swear, there really is no way to describe this product accurately because it's like the perfect mixture of all lipsticks, glosses and chapsticks.
Brown Sugar is a shimmery golden tan color. Although it's not the greatest color for my fair skin, I think this could look gorgeous on darker skin ladies.
