Makeup Mavens for this week and FYI +

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. 🙂

So this week we have some fun stuff to feature…go ahead and read on if you’d like…because you know you want to. LOL
Understated elegance is the order of the day at Hopelessly Devoted to Makeup as Burberry Eyeshadows in Rosewood and Trench take the spotlight. Definite must haves.

Lipstick Luvvies continues her love affair with all things Tom Ford, focusing on the perfect lipstick shade for summer, True Coral.

Fabulous trainer and artist, Erin for Le Metier De Beaute demonstrated some tips and tricks to Christina of Lovesong for My Lipgloss .

The trend for sheer lipsticks shows no signs of slowing down, but Mookie on the Bench shows that it has been around for longer than you might think, with a look at some of her favorites for all budgets.

Product Doctor gives you the ideal makeup remedy by tracking down the only taupe you ever need, from Edward Bess, who is possibly as beautiful as the products he creates.

Is Raspberry Rouge in ‘Ectasy’ this week courtesy of Chantecaille’s blush? Read her excellent review to find out.

So good it deserves to be mentioned twice, The Black Panties showcases the latest Lip Kaleidoscope from Le Metier de Beaute alongside makeup artist supremo Dustin.

We hope you found something to not only tempt you but your wallet as well!
