Makeup Mavens present beauty posts you might have missed. We may be a couple down (holidays beckon) but there is sure to be something to tempt you in our roundup. This week we have a look at some free products for a change, what Chantecaille has in store for Fall, a Chanel nail polish perfect for summer and most importantly, one of our mavens tries Rouge Bunny Rouge for the first time.

Lovesong For My Lipgloss gives us a peek at the latest offerings from Chantecaille, two brand new shades of lip chic perfect for the transition from summer to fall.

In a change to form, Lipstick Luvvies shows us some of the best freebies on offer with the monthly glossies and some TK Maxx bargains.

Barely a week goes by without some mention of blogger favourite Rouge Bunny Rouge, and now it is the turn of Product Doctor. See whether she thinks their loose glitter pigment is enough to start a love affair with the brand.

Raspberry Rouge shows us that some of Chanel’s older polishes are just as fabulous as their latest releases with a closer look at Miami Peach.

As for my FYI: I’m on a bit of a break from blogging, since my life outside of the beauty world, has me everywhere and nowhere at the same time. I can’t disclose much else. I will do my best to blog, but I know I won’t be posting as often. I’ll let you know once that changes. 🙂

Makeup Mavens present makeup you might have missed. This week we posted about Tarte Cosmetics, the allure of false eyelashes, and posed a valid question about SPF in our makeup – are we really getting enough?  
Now that we are in the full swing of summer, 12 top summer essentials were toted by Jenn of HopelesslyDevoted to Makeup. See if your “must haves” for battling crippling heat and unbearable humidity made the cut? 
Jennifer of Lipstick Luvvies did some treasure hunting and uncovered some “hidden gems” found at Zuneta! This post will tempt you into placing a Zuneta order for sure. 
Tarte Cosmetics managed to catch the “eye” of Christina from Lovesong for My Lipgloss and she was kind enough to swatch them al for us! Do any of these calls call your name? 
In this captive post, Mookie On The Bench, raises a great question about relying on SPF in our makeup. 

Product Doctor finally got to sample Burberry Beauty and she was not disappointed! Take a peek at what she ended up walking away with plus a gift with purchase too – Score!   

RaspberryRouge shows us the Becca bronzer that has been logging the miles since the beginning of summer for her.  Doesn’t she have the most gorgeous complexion?  
The Black Panties shows us her go-to eye lashes when she wants to be the spotlight of attention. Are you a fan of false eyelashes yourself? After seeing her wearing these lashes, I’m a fan *swoon*.

For all of my taupe homies, look no further than u-taupe-ia aka Hopelessly Devoted to Makeup’s review on the epic purple taupe that is Delicate Hummingbird eyeshadow. 

I know we are always on the hunt for that perfect luxurious, vibrant pink lipstick. Look no further because Lipstick Luvvies is in love with By Terry’s Cherry Cherry lipstick. Talk about stopping traffic *wink*

Lovesong for My Lipgloss is really adoring her new travel companion, which is Hourglass Illume Cream to Powder Bronzer Duo. I must say, the stuff looks pretty awesome 😀

Bridal makeup is definitely always something we want to perfect since we all want to look awesome on our wedding day. It’s no surprise that  Mookie On The Bench has some great ideas on what items to use and it’s a bonus to see her skills in action.  

Looking for an amazing concealer and treatment in one? Product Doctor is smitten with Le Metier de Beaute’s Peau Vierge Corrector and see what a difference it has made for her skin.

It’s July and it’s always nice to find pretty, very luminous bronzy highlighter that gives a soft warmth to your cheeks. If you’re in the market for one, check out to see if it really is Raspberry Rouge’s alternative to Dior Amber Diamond. 

Since The Black Panties always afraid of warm palettes, she has decided to step outside her comfort zone and take the plunge on my first Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow in #5 Sakurakaba.
