Fabulous Links of the Week

I met Romero Jennings At The Makeup Show NYC! I interviewed him and Johnny Weir a while ago about MAC’s Glitter & Ice collection for holiday 2011.

I was at The Makeup Show NYC this weekend! As always, it was a great time, with inspiring keynotes, photo ops, makeup, a press preview led by the always hilarious James Vincent, and did I mention…makeup?! I’ll try to get a pic up on Instagram ASAP of some highlights from the goody bag. This year there was really good skin care, and a cool Kat von D lip liner.

While I ran around The Metropolitan Pavilion, where the show was held, beauty news still happened elsewhere in the world. Remember my friends at Memebox? They announced this week they are no longer selling K-beauty products in the U.S., in order to focus more on K-beauty content, such as product reviews and tutorials. But fear not, K-beauty fans. You will still be able to buy Memebox’s K-beauty finds through Amazon. (WWD) (Fashion Network)

And Johnson & Johnson must pay the largest settlement ever in a series of law suits claiming it’s Johnson’s Baby Powder, which is formulated with talc, causes ovarian cancer. In this case, J&J must pay a Virginia woman $110.5 million.  Last year, the personal care giant was ordered to pay plaintiffs in similar cases $70.1 million, $72 million, and $55 million. I’ll just stick to sprinkling it in my shoes. (Allure)

Have a great week! xo

This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter.

Bath and Body: Le Petit Marseillais Shower Creme

I’m down to try anything French, especially French beauty products. The French know their stuff. So I couldn’t wait to try France’s popular Le Petit Marsellais line of body care, which recently launched in the U.S.*

According to parent company Johnson & Johnson, Le Marseillais started as a small hand-made soap company in Provence. One of the brand’s first products was olive oil soap sold in a few local pharmacies. The ingredients in Le Petit Marseillais are inspired by the South of France: lavender, orange blossom, and nectarine.

“The spirit of Le Petit Marseillais goes beyond ingredients,” Dawn Kidd, senior marketing director at Johnson & Johnson, Consumer Inc., said in a statement. “These products capture an entire way of life in the South of France: the sun-kissed countryside, vibrant colors, and simple pleasures of Provence.”

I am currently loving the Cotton Milk & Poppy extra-gentle shower creme. It smells like clean laundry, and leaves your skin feeling really soft. Apparently poppies bloom in the summer in the Mediterranean.

My other fave? White Peach & Nectarine extra-gentle shower gel. I’ll be smelling yummy this summer!

Le Petit Marseillais is available at stores like Walmart, Target, and CVS. As a matter of fact, according to the press materials, Walmart exclusively carries a line of 17 Le Petit Marseillais products, including hand soaps, body lotions, and a bar soap. The best part is that all these items are priced between $3.99 and $7.97. How wallet friendly is that?!

Tell me. Have any of your favorite foreign beauty products made their way stateside? You know me and K-beauty. And I’ll always come back to Nuxe body oil from France. Let’s talk imported beauty in the comments!
