Swift Shadows – RMS Beauty released their new pressed powder eye shadows, the Swift Shadows – said to offer the “same pigment payoff and light reflective finish you’ve come to expect from RMS”. I picked up two shades, Garden Rose GR-12 and Sunset Beach SB-46. I’ll be posting a full review and swatches soon, but let me tell you, they are truly exquisite!

Morrocan Rose – My beloved Beldi Soap from Kahina Giving Beauty is now available in a delightful rose scent. The Beldi Soap is a one-of-a-kind gel soap that intensely moisturizes as it effectively cleanses. I was strictly a bar-soap kind of girl, until I discovered this one. See me rave about the original Eucalyptus here.

A Pouch for Pups – I recently picked up the adorable limited edition Cookie Bag from Jane Iredale. This makeup bag features a photo of Jane Iredale’s Dog Cookie. A portion of the profits from each sale will be donated to the Berkshire Humane Society. My little pooch got in for the photo.

New Beauty – Jane Iredale’s latest Fall Collection* offers some new and noteworthy products, including the new Smooth Affair For Eyes – a cream to powder formula that can be used alone for a sheer wash of shimmering color, or as an eyelid primer. Also, a new Retractable Brow Pencil, currently available in three shades – and let me tell you, they are good!

Harmony Palette

The Best Beauty Sub Box Teri Miyahira’s August Beauty Box* is the best yet! Each month Teri knocks it out of the park, with an amazing selection of green beauty and skin care products – I don’t know how she does it! This month features two full-sized beauty products a full-sized skin care including:

  • Harmony Palette – A Compact Color for Face & Eyes, featuring four delightfully soft and intensely pigmented shades, a cool pink, a soft gold shimmer, a coppery bronze and a matte bronze. The matte bronze just happens to be the perfect shade for my light complexion. I’ve pleaded to Teri to bring us a full-sized, it’s just the perfect matte shade of bronze that’s not too red or orange – just perfect!
  • Strength Powder Eyeshadow – This taupe shade has a lot of dimension, sometimes appearing more mauve and at other times more lavender, such beautiful color. The texture is beautiful and applies with ease.
  • Green Tea Detox Gel Cleanser – A detoxifying cleanser featuring all natural ingredients like witch hazel, nettle and green tea.
