    They have Terra Inca powder presented in the most beautiful packaging like ever! From what I gather its meant for bronzing. And also s cute eye kohl which I was sceptical about first but after finding out its self sharpening I really want it! And also 3 glosses which I want 2 off I haven't got much Guerlain either and after seeing the prices - I know why!

    Ooh Ooh! I just checked my mail and I got a reply from MAC about the release date for Surf Baby and Fashion Flower! The surprising thing was the date of the Fashion Flower launch, I think its meant to be June

    Surf Baby - 5th May
    Fashion Flower - 7th July (may be error)

    But atleast were getting Surf Baby next week! Ahh its so near!

    I'm only getting two lippies from the main two collections...All my cash is going towards Semi Precious. Can't wait for the collections to roll past.

    I bought the Terra Inca powder and the eyeshadow palette the other day in Dillards, they are so pretty. I am a huge Guerlain fan, have all their Meteorites, eyeshadows, blushes, loads of lipsticks and lipglosses. I also picked up one of the new Automatique lipsticks in a gorgeous coral shade (141 I think). It is very expensive though, I left over £100 at the Guerlain counter.

    Benefit are recruiting at various House Of Fraser and Debenhams stores if anyone's interested in working for them. Just a few venues listed so far, but there might be more to come

    i'd love to work in the cosmetics industry one day - Mac is my brand of choice. the thing that puts me off benefit is the fact they rely on grabbing customers as they walk past - it's all very hard sell with them. and i have worked in sales for many years and i still can't hard sell - it's just not me.

    Thats true about Benefit - Atleast with MAC theres always customers piling up and they don't really have to sell anything cause we tend to go crazy there anyways! I really would love a job thats related to cosmetics! If only there was a MAC office here or something!

    I just discovered that Boots are selling Orly nail polishes on their website. I might be late to the party here, but I've never noticed it there before, and I've looked for nail polish quite a lot recently.

    The Benefit staff in our House of Fraser are a bit pushy with the sales, too. You can't just look at anything without them coming up to talk to you about it.

    Seriously, you can't even glance in their direction before your man-handled into the chair and makeup is applied. I hate the expectation that after such treatment you are almost expected to buy said items applied. Err, No. I just found out the other day my local boots have set up a counter just as you come into the store. Yeah...I'm staying away from Boots.

    yeah i'm not a fan of sales people like that. me and my guys always approach people, say hello and just let them know we are here if they have questions. if they stand around for more than a few minutes we then ask if they need help again but with different wording. but most of the time people actually turn to us and just ask because they know we are here for them

    Ooh, you're right - I've just been and checked. They're 5ml. Thanks for pointing that out to me

    I'm very excited about Semi Precious, love all the mineralize collections.

    Yes, the Meteorites are lovely, but actually they are not that pricey especially when you look at their weight (30-33g), they actually work out cheaper than most other brands gram per gram. The voyage powders are the really expensive ones, they cost over £100 each, but they are so pretty and thanks to eBay I've managed to buy all of them so far. I know, I'm crazy, I just can't resist.

    I agree, that's one of the reasons why I don't own much Benefit make up. :S

    Or you have the snooty Higher End counters when you could be standing on fire and they wouldn't glance your way. I get very intimidated in Debenhams
