After announcing that Fergie would be the new Global Ambassador for Wet N Wild Cosmetics, the affordable and fashion-forward cosmetic brand has expanded their global impact by signing a deal with DMV Diedrichs Markenvertrieb to bring their line to Germany.

New products, packaging and fixtures are expected to arrive in stores by May 2012, and will target drugstores and mass retailers. Says Bill George, president and chief operating officer, Markwins Beauty:

DMV is the perfect partner for wet n wild, as Germany is the next logical target for the brand’s global expansion. The German economy is the largest in Europe and German women are amongst the top consumers of cosmetics. Our mix of quality, fashion and value resonates with these customers, and in DMV, we have a partner that knows the market and can deliver the support that retailers and consumers need.

I love the idea that Wet N Wild will be expanding to different countries, bringing their affordable cosmetics to the masses around the world. What do you think?


Estee Lauder will be launching a limited edition, two-piece makeup collection inspired by the hit television show Mad Men. The launch will coincide with the season premiere March 25, 2012, but you can pre-order the collection now via Estee Lauder’s website.

I’m a little in love with Victoria’s Secret 2011 Holiday Makeup Collection – even the packaging is amazing, and I am a sucker for packaging. The collection includes gorgeous, earthy shadows and bold lip colors so you can create the perfect look for all of your holiday parties this year.

First up are the Deluxe Eyeshadow Palettes in Masquerade and Slow Deduction (cool and warm tones.) These palettes contain five shadows each and come housed in a beautiful pink or red case; a bonus dual-sided eyeshadow brush is also included.

Victoria’s Secret has also released three limited-edition Color Lust Lip Lacquers in Red Hot (true red,) Daring (hot pink) and Risky, a soft pink shade. They’re highly pigmented, so you can wear them alone or layer them over a complimentary color for the ultimate impact.

They’ve also released Luminous Face Powder Gems in Moonlight, a product designed to give skin a gorgeous glow all winter long. While I can’t find these listed on their website, I have done a little research and it seems the manufacturing may have been delayed. We shall see! In any case, the other products from their holiday line are available now at VictoriasSecret.com.

Estee Lauder has recently unveiled their gorgeous holiday eyeshadow collection, and I am SO in love! The collection features six new shades that are definitely worthy of adorning your eyes this holiday season.

The six shades include:

Cyber Pink, Cyber Green, Cyber Copper, Cyber Lilac, Cyber Teal and Cyber Silver and are packed with shimmery, glittery particles for a truly eye catching look. The shadows retail for $24 each, and can be purchased at Esteelauder.com. Which one is your favorite?

China Glaze has recently announced their “Eye Candy” 2011 Holiday Collection. In an industry first, these polishes utilize 3-D glitters for a holographic glitter effect that sounds pretty awesome, if you ask me!

The collection includes six colors:

  • Love Marilyn (red with silver glitter)
  • Some Like it Haute (graphite gray)
  • Material Girl (bubblegum pink glitter)
  • Marry a Millionaire (amethyst with multitonal glitter fibers)
  • Lorelai’s Tiara (sterling silver with blue glitter)
  • Blonde Bombshell (glittering gold)

I love all of the makeup collections that are introduced during the holidays, and Stila’s 2011 Holiday Collection is no exception. For the full list of products, keep reading after the break!
