Hello Ladies !

Happy Monday ! Did you have a good weekend ?

If I had to describe my weekend I'd call it - Bolly Buster. I don't know what took over me but I woke up Saturday morning craving SRK. Nobody does romance better than him and the only movie I remembered was Kabhie Kushi Kabhi Ghum, so I sat and watched it. I truly believe that a lack of romance in real life can be compensated by an overdose of it from Bollywood and of course lipstick. And yesterday I watched Bluff Master. So I'm full. My Bolly appetite has been served and served well !

Now temme what you did. I hope yours was more exciting than mine ! Think about it and we'll get back to it later.

The Clinique Summer 2009 Bamboo Pink Collection

Read my preview post before this one, so you know how I feel about the collection. I've always wondered what I'd wear if I was invited to meet the Queen of England . Okay I lied. Who thinks of such stuff ! Surely not me. But if I were invited to meet the Queen I would most probably use items from this collection for my meeting-the-queen look. Did you know the Queen was 22 when she gave birth to her first child ? Again, I have never wondered about meeting the queen and I am not obsessed with royalty. I'm just saying...if I did, then...

The collection is for women of all skin tones. And this cannot be said for most collections. Here are the swatches. Ogle at it and then make a mad rush to the mall.

Fresh Bloom All Over Color

Though it says fresh bloom and the flower looks a lot like the Fresh Bloom Collection released for spring this year, there is a marked difference. This product only has about 15.6 % of the frost that fresh bloom products had. This is more like a pink glow for your face. It is for people who don't like bronzers, don't need one or just want to change it up. It catches light so beautifully and makes my face glow in multitudes of pink. Multidimensional stuff, I tell ya !

Bamboo Pink Eye Shadow Quad

Four sophisticated colors in one palette - a champagne pink / taupe / deep wine with hint of brown/ brown pink. I personally love wearing each color on its own all over the lid. Or any of the three with champagne pink as highlight. Sexy as hell ! Totally S.S.S

Butter Shine Lipstick - Bamboo Pink

A dusty pink with a hint of brown and a pearly finish. Great for pigmented lips. Great for work. Great for Kroger. Great for you. Great for your mom. And great for your neighbor with the tiny dog and big hair. Oh wait, that's my neighbor.

Cream Shaper For Eyes

Chocolate Luster is a pretty doe eyed brown. But the other color -Did they call it Cocoa shimmer ? I call it pencil taupe. It is the exact taupe from the eyeshadow quad in a pencil from. You know how makeup artists never get tired of saying " Silver / Gold on the inner corner brightens up your eye" Well news flash - gold or silver on my eye at work only gets me the nick name Goldie- Hawn . ( Yeah my imaginary coworkers are super creative with names) So, what I'm getting at is that this taupe makes for an excellent inner corner color. See, I told you I'd get to the point sooner or later.

Get your sunglasses out, camera flash on silver causes blinding

The Bamboo Brush is beautiful in its design and I'd say you should get it. But if you had to skip one thing from the collection then I'd say its the brush. Nothing's wrong with it but I don't want your wallet to kick me on my behind. The deal is this - I'll save ya $30 in return for no kicking-the-behind.

So, tell me how was the weekend. We are now come back to it. Indulge me. Gimme details. Make up stories. Anything !

Hi Anon !
I saw it both the Nordstroms I went to. The Clinique MUA was telling me about how fast they sold out. The eyeshadow palettes were no longer available at one of the stores - completely sold out !
Did u ask them for the collection ? I am guessing they probably sold out too...
