Can one have a crush on brushes? I don’t normally get excited about makeup brushes, other than synthetic kabuki’s, but Lancome’s new limited edition blue-black makeup brushes are immensely attractive, and this brush set is one of only a few new products that I predict will strike ahhhh in the hearts of consumers everywhere.
The limited edition “Declaring Indigo” set of Lancome’s new blue-black brushes will be available to ship from Nordstrom.com starting July 17, 2009 (pre-order now). This smolderingly beautiful new Lancome brush set is a $124 value, and comes with four blue and black bristle brushes and a pretty blue-black brush clutch for only $52.
The Nordstrom-exclusive Lancome brush set includes the following 4 brushes:
- Mineral Powder Foundation Brush
- Foundation Brush #2 (liquid foundation brush)
- Blender Brush #4 (face and eye blender)
- Dual-Ended Brush #18 (liner and shadow)

(Note: According to Lucky Magazine, the price of this brush set will go up a lot after August 2!)
[Update: I checked out these brushes in person, and most of them are synthetic, according to the salesperson. I think only the blender is not synthetic. Also, the bag is really cute!]

Le Labo – Neroli 36 Fragrance (Fantastic watery neroli fragrance!)
Cargo PlantLove – Green Goddess Palette (Eco-friendly beauty!)

Enjoy! from Meilily

Farfetch.com promises to fetch visitors the best and brightest of goodies from around the globe, delivered directly from far-off locales. Therefore, the site features one of the most interesting selections of shoes, clothing, and accessories around.
Though even the sale items at farfetch.com may be too expensive to splurge on at the moment, the sale section, particularly the sale shoe section, is definitely worth an inspirational peek once in a while.
For example, on my last visit, I was awed by the artistic construction of purple suede pumps by Chie Mihara (from Maison Nipi, Vigevano), the angled ergonomics of calf-length boots by Opening Ceremony (from SIX, London), and the scalloped classiness of gray patent leather peep toe heels by Emporio Armani (also from Maison Nipi).
Btw, last time I visited farfetch.com, they even had the Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Lady Dragon shoes featured by Meilily in salmon, but unfortunately they sold out. Farfetch.com still has other unique Melissa shoes though, like the oddly appealing Mistrey by Melissa rubber gladiator sandals.
