Women over 40 beauty, Skincare, Fashion, Fitness and Lifestyle

Hope Santa brought you some beauty goodies! I’ve been busy with family and travel the last few days.  It’s great to see everyone, but I’m happy to be back in my own home.  Our beauty blogging friends were busy this week, like Santa’s elves, helping you find the best of the best.
Check out our favorite features from the last week.

We are smitten with Chanel’s Ombres Perlées de Chanel for Spring 2011.
Check out Café Makeup for Amy’s review, The Beauty Look Book for Sabrina’s review, and Best Things in Beauty for Charlestongirl’s review.
Think we love it? Get a gift card for Christmas? This could be your purchase – treat yourself! We reviewed other products from Chanel’s spring collection, so make sure to read all of this week’s Chanel features.

Want a golden glow for New Year’s Eve? It’s not too late to pick up Guerlain’s L’Or Makeup Base. Find out why you need it from Gaia at The Non-Blonde.

Was Jennifer hoping for Philosophy’s Hope in a Jar in her stocking?
Recently featured in Oprah’s “Ultimate Favorite Things,” Oprah loves this product. Read Jennifer’s review at BeautyXposé.

Benefit granted two Christmas wishes for Laurie: 1) they gave her an awesome spray tan, and 2) a new boxed blush, Bella Bamba! Benefit’s newest face powder brings something new to the Benefit line-up, with promises of a 3-D brightening effect. Read all about it at Product Girl.

Kelly proved she’s game for anything at Gouldylox Reviews. Water Marbling isn’t for everyone, but if you find yourself snowed in, it’s a fun look to try.

Jane got in the Christmas spirit at Daly Beauty. Head over to find out what’s ringing her bells for the holidays.

Find out why Debbi’s knocked over by a Dior advertisement from 2007 – still airing, still alluring. When you visit DivaDebbi, let her know if you think Charlize Theron knocked it out of the park for Dior.

I will be playing a bit of catch-up with my beauty this week, but in the meantime, check out a makeup primer that can be used before or after your makeup application. Find out more about Dior’s Crystal Nude Primer at Fab over Forty.

Was Santa good to you? Hope you enjoy your holiday!
