Here is today's snippets of beauty news...

Newly added to the Make Up Forever HD line is a collection of powder blushes (16 shades in total) which promise to be every bit as good as their cream counterparts. As you know Make Up Forever is pretty difficult to track down in the UK not to mention pricey hopefully this will change in the future. At the moment those in North America can find them via Sephora - link

There is a new Clarisonic coming our way - The Clarisonic Aria. Much like the other Clarisonic brushes is gentle (you can use twice a day) but it features a third extra speed and as the bristles move at 300 movements per second, it removes up to six times more grime. All that and it has a longer battery life. This may be the Clarisonic that twists my arm to cough up the pennies and purchase a machine of my own. Look out for it launching very soon.

It looks like The Body Shop's spring release will be a collective of limited edition Blueberry goodies. Doesn't that sound yummy?

Guerlain has launched Orchidée Impériale - a new eye and lip cream. It is said to promoting cell regeneration for visible action on tissue firmness and density, fine lines and wrinkles and skin radiance and evenness.The new eye and lip cream helps to restore youthfulness and radiance, protecting against harsh climate and environmental factors. Orchidée Impériale is available now priced £120...ouch!

Today it has come to light that Diptyque will be launching their very own skin care line later this year. An instant hit no doubt!

Three of YSL's male fragrances get new and rather funky limited edition packaging - Yves Saint Laurent Edition Art. This is collaboration with Norwegian artist Gardar Eide Einarsson. The artist hopes that the art will bring a new dimesion to the already ever popular scents.

And that is all I have for today.
