Lots of new stuff: LE e/s, two Shimmer Blushes, Smoothing Powder, & Powder Brushes!

Where do I even start??? about the new LE Limited Edition eyeshadows!

I am extremely cold-natured so I was inspired formulating this collection by the cool weather. (LOL, I know some of you are laughing since I live in Mississippi where the weather is NOWHERE near as cold as the Northern states but I somehow freeze all the same!!!) I've gotten to love "smokey eye" looks and since I already have the basic colors in my line to do typical smokey eyes (Fearless, Mysterious, Tenacious, Devoted, etc.) I wanted a few brighter shades that ran a little on the cool-toned side for some more unique looks. I think it was Dao of My Makeup Blog who suggested to me a while back to formulate a blue version of Fearless so I've been to work coming up with that along with some colors to mix and match with them. Check them out here in the LE Section!

Besides the special deal on the entire set like I usually do, I thought it wise to add a pick-your-own "Trio Eyecolor Set" for these LE's. I noticed that most people usually find 3-4 colors out of a large collection that they like versus getting all seven colors. These will be available until they are "Sold Out" OR April 1.

We also have some Limited Edition Premium Metallic eyecolors up; you can buy these singly or get the entire trio. They are slightly more colorful versions (as opposed to being super neutral like my other Metallic shades) and even have a marbleized effect when you remember to "dab" on during application (Capricious). As with the Winter 2009 LE, these will be availabe until they have "Sold Out" or April 1.

Oh, and FYI, these will be the final prices on them! We don't intend on marking them down any further while they are available. I think I sympathize with another MMU company in that I feel bad for those that miss out on a sale and those that get the head start and buy early on sometimes lose out since retailers tend to mark them for Clearance later on down the line! So the main price breaks are if you get these in the Trio Sets. :)

Now, as part of our permanent collection, is some additional Shimmer Blushes/Glows. As some pointed out, it seemed we were lacking in some "cooler tones" so we have added two new colors, Bemused & Dainty. Bemused is an almost-scary looking bright lavender but because it is fairly sheer, it simply adds a face brightening radiance that looks great on those of you who have very fair olive/neutral skintones or those who want to brighten up a yellowed/sallow complexion. Dainty, although it appears to be more of a warm shade, is a delicately soft and feminine pink that was a hit with some of my cooler skintoned testers. As with Bemused, it is a sheer shade and simply excellent for added a luminousity to your complexion without adding a lot of color. Unlike Bemused, though, this would also work well with darker, more warm skintones as a glow or highlighter. (I find that I can use it to add highlight or a dewy finish and I wear Grace 4.0.)

In addition, we have added (per request from some of my Consumer Panel members & a couple customers) we've added a line of powders similar to Makeup Forever's High Definition Powder.
We're calling this our Supreme Smoothing Powder as it helps to blur those dratted fine lines and large pores to give you a smoother finish for that porcelain doll effect. To complement our foundation line, we not only have the untinted version, but in Golden (yellow), Peachy, & Neutral Tints. Simply go to our "Powders" category to see them. Also, you can make them one of your choices when ordering in the Trio or Duo Powder sets. Please see the listing, though, for specifics.

As with all our powders, we include a cute little powder puff because it not only helps keep the powder from flowing out too quickly, but the best application for powder is by dabbing it on first with the puff; letting it sit for about 3-5 minutes to "soak in," and then whisking away the excess with a powder brush.

Which brings us to our last addition! Again, per request of one of our wonderful customers, we have added both the large and small version of the powder brushes of the Premium line.

Here is a comparison pic with the popular Jumbo Buffer
so you can see the relative size of both:

Happy shopping! Oh, and for those who placed an order this weekend or are placing any orders Sunday evening & Monday morning, I also wanted to remind you that Monday, Feb. 16 is a holiday (President's Day) so no orders will be shipped out until Tuesday, Feb. 17 since the U.S. Postal Service is closed.
