What’s hot? There are tons of great products in the stores right now, but these are my picks for the best of what's around.

NEW for Spring -- sheer shades to flatter a wide range of skin tones! The Violet Face Palette has everything you need to create Bobbi's NEW Violet Look. This limited-edition palette includes seven shades: three Eye Shadows, one Blush, and three Lip Glosses. All shades, except Mahogany Eye Shadow, are only available in this palette.

Bobbi BrownAvailable for a limited time only! The Violet Collection features a vibrant crop of violet-inspired shades for eyes and true beige shades for lips.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer

Smashbox makeup artists use this product to create a perfect canvas for foundation application. The silky blend of vitamins and antioxidants does double-duty as a primer and a mattifier, while the unique formula helps to inhibit the destruction of collagen, and fills in fine lines.


This spring, Fashion Fair adds three beautiful colors to their Finishings collection. Spice of Life, Pamper-Me-Pink and Strike It Rich. Spice of Life is a bronzed peach that kicks earth tones up a notch with deliciously glamorous results. Pamper-Me-Pink indulges the lips with a deep rosy shimmer. Strike It Rich lavishes lips with an overlay of pure golden bling.

TRUE FINISH® POWDER MAKEUP A new shade was added to their mineral powder makeup collection increasing the collection to eight shades. FF8, a rich dark brown it's perfect for individuals requiring a more intense shade of brown. Visit

Im defintily loving the blogs.
The smashbox primer if definitly a great buy. Ive been a smashbox purchessee for about 2 or 3 years now and i love there products.
I have the Photo Finish Primer in the clear as well as another one thats tinted that gives your skin a phenomenal glow( plus its got like an spf of 30,as well as anti-aging properties).
I have several of there eyeshadow singles as well as the trio's.
And about 4 of the cream eyeliners.
You'll also love the make-up brushes.
Smashbox products are wonderful and the quality is top notch. So for the cheapos out there. YOU GET WHAT U PAY FOR.
I haven't bought much Bobbi Brown, but ive never heard anything but good about her products.
Oh and for all the black women reading this, pay attention.
I have very sensitive skin, and ive tried products that would either break me out or make me look kinda ashy and all made up.
But everything Ive talked about above, the brands, are geared towards everyone not just our Anglo-Saxon counterparts.
