Coming Soon: Fresh Fruit & Flowers!

We’re gearing up for the big ‘thaw’ as Spring 2013 approaches. We thought the best way to get everyone’s skin ready to show for the warmer months, was to boost it with healing fruit acids and uplifting floral oils!

So we’re boosting a Habibi Favorite: POMEGRANATE. The new blend will contain even more Vitamin C packed Pomegranate juice… to help brighten and improve the overall look of your skin. We’re also boosting the level of Organic Essential ingredients to support the new blend.

LEMON TEA is coming back! For a limited time, the smooth ‘sweet tart’ fragrance will be back on the Habibi roster. We keep limited quantities of this amazing blend because that’s the best way to keep it absolutely fresh. For those of you who listed this fragrance as a favorite, look for it to show up around Mid-March.

PINK GRAPEFRUIT will make it’s debut on the eve of Spring 2013! This fresh squeezed blend will not only brighten your skin, it’ll help ‘lift’ your spirits as well! We worked hard to find the perfect balance between sweet and sour, to create a fragrance that mixes perfectly with our best selling products.

We’re also gearing up for a sale to celebrate the arrival of Spring! So stay tuned for updates, and HAPPY SHOPPING!

Blushed: Giorgio Armani Blushing Fabric (HD Orange)

Armani released a colorful collection of shadows, blushes and lipsticks for Spring 2013. But I only had eyes for one thing: The Blushing Fabric in HD Orange.

 The shimmering orange color just screams Fresh Squeezed Springtime. I wasted no time testing it out on myself.

It applies best (and you use a lot less) with fingers. The formula is non greasy and sets beautifully on bare skin or over foundation. This is my favorite piece of the collection.

Product Review: Chanel Spring 2013

It’s not even Christmas, and already Chanel has put up the new Spring 2013 Collection. I call it a neutral flush, because most of the colors in this collection are fairly neutral, with a little flush from the blush in the collection, and several of the lipsticks.

All of the lippies were a pass for me. The glosses are shimmery in a way that I find unimpressive, and the lipsticks are a collection of nude bronze, peaches, and pinks that I found pass-worthy. What I DID like was the quad (despite its highly dupeable nature), the blush (must have), two of the eyeshadow pencils, and one of the lip pencils.

Oh, and the highlight. My Goodness… The Highlight is truly the Highlight of this collection.

First Impressions: 
The Highlighter is divine. It’s a neutral golden color, that will work on a wide range of skin tones. The finish is amazing… just a subtle addition of golden light. 
The quad is neutral, but the colors are so rich and gorgeous, and the matte brown is the best I’ve seen and used in a very long time. It’s not a must have, but it’s a lovely collection of colors and textures
The blush is perfect for spring. It’s a true matte peach, that will look more like apricot on warmer skin tones. It’s stronger than Espiegle and less pink than Malice. 
The eye pencils are completely gorgeous. Or Rose is worth a backup. There is also a horrid lavender color, that calls to question Chanel’s judgement. It’s a bit juvenile in both color and texture, in my opinion.
The lip pencil is a nice staple piece. If you need one, get it. 
Overall, the collection has a subtle and classic feeling to it. Fans of neutral tones and wearable shades will absolutely love it.
