On My Radar / New In Beauty

June 4, 2014

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I’m still trying to get used to the fact that we are already into the month of June. For some mid-week beauty cravings, here are some highlights on items on my radar and a sneak peek of what’s coming out soon. Details from top left, clockwise.

MAC Pedro Lourenço will be released in stores and counters this Thursday. Items have been posted online early though and are selling out quickly. I was able to order the Nude Eyeshadow Quad ($44). I have my eye on Gold Mirror Lipglass and Mirror Lipglass ($16.50 each). I’ll be trying to track these down this Thursday.

NARS is coming out with 12 new shades and formula of eyeshadow called Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow ($29 each) which have a unique wet or dry application formula. The colors range from delicate peach pink to fierce black orchid. These will be available for sale beginning July 1 at NARS boutiques and on narscosmetics.com along with a new eyeshadow brush. In the meantime NARS has created two videos for a preview. (For full color listing, check out The Non-Blonde.)
Burberry Summer Showers has arrived online at Burberry with three new colors of Nail Polish in Orange Poppy 221, Pink Peony 222, Pink Azalea 223 ($21 each). There are corresponding Lip Glow Balms and Fresh Glow Blushes as well to match each shade. These look like beautiful brights perfect for summer weather.

Jo Malone has a new Cologne Intense in Tuberose Angelica ($145). Being a huge fan of the other Cologne Intense fragrances, I’m eager to try this one out. My Jo Malone rep said it has already arrived in store, perfect timing for Neiman Marcus’s Camp Gorgeous Event (June 5 through 15 or while supplies last, gift with purchases online and in stores).

Estee Lauder has a new mini collection out called Crystal Baby. There is a new Crystal Baby Nail Lacquer ($21), Crystal Baby Illuminating Powder Gelee ($40), Crystal Baby Pure Color Gloss ($24) and four shades of Crystal Lipstick ($26 each) in Crystal Baby, Crystal Blush, Crystal Doll and Crystal Innocence. I have three items to show you soon.

Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Balm in Sugar Rose is one of the classic pinks ($22.50 each). A new shade in Sugar Tulip has just been released. Sephora.com has an exclusive early release preview for purchase for those who are VIB Members. I ordered this last week and it just arrived. I can’t wait to try it as it looks like a fresh pink.

What’s on your radar this week? Did you order the MAC items when they went live online? Any other new or recent discoveries?

    Živa from Nothin' Fancy. Really.

  • Ahhhh I'm excited for the new Sugar balm! Will you be reviewing it?

  • It's funny that the new Fresh Sugar Tulip is exclusively on sale for just VIBs when a few weeks ago it was there for anyone to purchase. Please show lip swatches. I didn't want to buy Tulip sight unseen.

    • That's odd, I wonder when it will be available for release everywhere. I will review it. Hopefully this week.

  • Hi! Do you know if Nordstrom will be carrying the Burbery Summer collection? Thanks!

    • I believe they will, I'm not sure when it will arrive, I expect this month though.

    Those shadows look interesting.

    I wish Fresh et al would stop using Castor Oil in products. Though I guess on the plus side, I don't end up buying AS many products because of the proliferation!

  • Wanna try the sugar tulip! Looks like a gorgeous pink 🙂

  • All of these products look gorgeous! I am particularly excited for the Pedro by MAC quad and the powder by Estée Lauder looks so pretty <3

  • Hello Sabrina. I am eager to try the new Burberry nail polishes. They look beautiful and I hope that you review them. Right now I am loving the new fragrance from Nuxe that smells like their huile prodigieuse.

  • I just got that MAC palette and I love it dearly!

  • You should go to the MAC store as early as possible if you want both of those lip glasses. And they are switched in the box, so make sure the lip glasses are the correct ones. They are gorgeous!!!!

  • Oh, this is a perfect whis list!
    Wonderful make up!



  • I really want to try some of these out!


  • The MAC nude palette looks lovely, but I'm eagerly waiting (and trying to save my beauty $$$'s) for the release of the 8 new Chanel Tisse' line of baked eye shadow quads. My Nordstrom Chanel crew previewed them yesterday and I can't wait to get the dish on them! They are to be released around the same time as the Anniversary sale….mid July. They will be permanent items (meaning not a limited release) and replace some quads which will be discontinued. Can't wait!

    • I'm really looking forward to the new Chanel quads as well 🙂

  • My Fresh Sugar Tulip is being delivered today…along with a few other goodies from Sephora. I'm wondering…what is so bad about castor oil?

    Ordered the Nude palette on your suggestion. Got Duchess palette and French Kiss lip crayon on day it was released online based on Temptalia swatches. Quality of Duchess is amazing, hoping Nude is as good. Also love the highlighter in the MAC Refresh skinfinish duo, was wondering if the Estee Lauder highlighter is similar? Or would the Jolly Good duo be closer to the highlighter color? Too much great stuff released this summer, way over budget and probably duping all over the place( yes, duping is now a verb!). I got Lorac Unzipped earlier in the season because Naked3 was just too cool for me and I wanted the pinky browns. However, Unzipped is more peachy on me. Also got Two Faced new version of their neutral palette – very cool brown and gold. Now too many overlapping, what do I do??? Wish I saw your post first, never would have gotten Unzipped (although the swatches I saw of it were better than in real life), and I should have known that the Neutral palette would have NEUTRALS, the basis of my wardrobe! But it was so cute and I thought it would be good for traveling. I'm also not makeup shopping too often, so I have to get this stuff online and make snap decisions. Oh well, I'll have to figure it out by myself! Thanks for your great swatches and opinions.
