Ah, the days of warmth may be around the corner, but we sure can’t see them yet. If you’re snowed in or iced in, take comfort in Punxsutawney Phil’s early prediction of spring. We sure hope he’s right!
Recently, we’ve been taking comfort in the fact that we can be beautifully prepared for spring, and this means our flawless, hairless arms, legs and bikini areas.
We’ve been a tad obsessed with Nair of late, primarily because we love to shower. Agreed, that razors are everywhere and very convenient, but you might be …
There are primers and there are Primers. The ones of yesteryear are the colorless, lighter-than-souffle variety that’s chock full of silicones. They glide over your skin like contestants in Dancing with the Stars and prep your face for the canvas of your foundation.
But those primers are so 2010, girls.
Recently, we have been hooked like a cat to catnip on Fusion Beauty’s new quartet of highly-specific primers. These are corrective primers that address specific skin care needs:
The Anti-Redness primer is an extra gentle formula that subdues irritation and redness. It contains …
Redken, one of our favorite haircare brands, has entered the sulfate-free haircare market with its new line Nature’s Rescue. It is the brand’s first sulfate-free and silicone-free line with water fresh fragrances.
The whole premise behind this line is one of cooling. The packaging also reflects this, with its cool blue tones and a picture of the breezy, balmy sea. It’s inviting and cooling at the same time.
The nutrient-rich sea algae complex has sea algae, aloe vera and soy protein to really moisturize the hair. These ingredients leave the hair nice …
As you may or may not know, I hail from the “Emerald City,” aka Seattle, Washington, rain capital of the United States, neighbor to Forks, Washington (yeah vampires and the Space Needle).
There’s a reason why they call it the Emerald City. It’s green here, all year round and mostly because it rains for about five or six months of the year. So when they asked me to write a story on self tanning products, I jumped at the chance. Poor me could easily be cast in an episode of True …
Nothing gives a girl greater pleasure than sizing up new beauty products. Case in point (no pun intended),Caswell-Massey new Onyx’s soap. It’s a thing of black beauty, that is an oval study in black. It suds white, contrary to what you might think.
The most expensive soap by Caswell-Massey, this one smells like an Atelier fragrance. It’s triple milled, slightly moisturizing, and scented with notes of vetivier, patchoulli and tobacco. In short, it definitely is not your average gal’s soap (we think it’s most definitely unisex). The cost is $20 for …
Success never smelled. Period. Unless you have a nose for the imaginative.
Until now, that is. The two new fragrances, Money Cologne (for men) and Money Eau de Parfum were designed to give the air of freshly-minted money and is packed inside a box containing REAL SHREDDED American currency.
I kid you not.
It’s too bad that it doesn’t come with the money pre shredding.
The Eau de Parfum is actually a very floral and wearable scent, with notes of vibrant pink grapefruit and mandarin, and enhanced by freesia, passion fruit, Hawaiian wedding flower …
Ever wondered what goes on into making a great skincare product? Well, hours of work, for one. A good cosmetic chemist is someone passionate about his or her job, and able to refine and harness the power of raw ingredients.
Says Ron Robinson, cosmetic chemist and founder of BeautyStat, “Cosmetic chemists are scientists that formulate beauty products based on their knowledge of cosmetic ingredients and technologies. They combine these ingredients in ways that create skincare, makeup, body care and other types of personal care products.”
Take seaweed, for example. Did …
Clarins introduces soft pastels and neutral sheer color in its spring 2011 collection. We for one are loving this alternative to some of the vibrant shades we are seeing out there. Sometimes, it is better to whisper, than to shout.
The standout of this collection is the wonderful nude shades of lipstick and the subtle blush shades, made to give a soft sweep of color to the cheekbones for that “fresh spring air look.”
Prodige Illuminating Cheek Color: Available in six colors Lovely Rose, Soft Peach, Miami Pink, Sunset Coral, Rose Wood, …
When hearing “Pretty in Pink” most think of the 1986 romantic comedy starring Molly Ringwald. Wake up! It’s 2011 and Pretty in Pink has a whole new meaning according to Clinique.
Michelle Smith, renowned designer of the women’s fashion and accessories label, Milly, has teamed with Clinique to bring you this limited edition collection: Pretty in Prints. Included in the collection are the essentials: eye, cheek and lip with soft pinks packaged in a silver compact with a “one-of-a-kind Milly print.”
The compact is designed by Michelle to showcase her signature. The …
