Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian.

Olay Body Wash Plus Stage Five Clingers

olay+body+wash+plus+spa+exfoliating+ribbons Olay Body Wash Plus Stage Five Clingers
A few months ago, Marie Claire named Olay Body Wash plus Spa Exfoliating Ribbons as one of the ’25 Beauty Products That Will Change Your Life.’ I really enjoy Marie Claire and typically trust their reviews, but this was straight up hyperbole.

Olay Body Wash plus Spa Exfoliating Ribbons isn’t the worst body wash that I’ve ever tried, but it by no means changed my life. The creamy lather foams up nicely and feels silky on skin. The ocean-y fragrance is pleasant, and subtly lingers. But, unfortunately, the scent isn’t the only thing that likes to stick around.

smurfette Olay Body Wash Plus Stage Five ClingersThe microbeads don’t dissolve, like you might expect them to. Rather, they cling to your skin…so when you’re rinsing clean, you need to check (and double-check) yourself to make sure the blue beads aren’t hiding anywhere. And be prepared for your shower/tub to look like Smurfette just got done exfoliating in there instead of you.

There are plenty of better body washes on the market, so I can’t recommend this one. Even though it costs less than $6, I still expect to be impressed. Yes, Olay Body Wash plus Spa Exfoliating Ribbons cleanses skin and gently buffs skin. But, then again, so does a bar of Dove soap and a washcloth…and this combo won’t leave stage five clingers littering your shower floor.

 Sweet Treat: Jaqua Raspberry Buttercream Giveaway
When the temperature starts to dip, I start craving sweets. Once in a blue moon, I’ll indulge my sweet tooth with Dark Chocolate M&Ms – but my diet only allows for the occasional dalliance. Fortuitously, my beauty arsenal is stocked with products from Jaqua, which all smell so decadently delish, that I’m tempted to taste. Oh, who am I kidding? I have tasted – and unfort, the flavor doesn’t quite correspond with the scrumptious scent. Anyway, moving on…

I am a huge fan of dessert-smelling bath and body products, and I can say – without hesitation – that Jaqua’s Buttercream Frosting offerings take the cake. Literally. I want to lick myself every time I use the Buttercream products (there I go again). Jaqua’s Raspberry Buttercream Frosting Collection, a yummy marriage of juicy raspberry and sweet cream, is the newest addition to the menu.

fresh+fall+2008 Its Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This Fall
This fall, Fresh will expand its fragrance portfolio with a new scent, Strawberry Flowers, created in celebration of Sephora’s 10th anniversary. The company is also expanding its bath and body, skin care and makeup offerings with a bevy of new beauty products.

Launching exclusively at Sephora in September, Strawberry Flowers Eau de Parfum is a fruity floral scent, designed specifically for a younger, Sephora customer. The fragrance, inspired by the scents of a typical spring morning, is composed of top notes of mandarin, yuzu and white peach, middle notes of mountain strawberries, freesia, orange blossom and osmanthus, and base notes of orris, musk and white woods.

Also in September, Fresh will debut the Fig Apricot body care collection, based on its top-selling Fig Apricot Eau de Parfum, which launched a decade ago. The collection will include a bath/shower gel and a body cream and will be sold at Barneys, Neiman Marcus, Sephora, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bluemercury.

Fresh’s fall color collection includes the Imperial Bedroom Face Palette, and a new Firebird Mascara. The palette’s cream-based colors include iridescent pearl and warm antique gold eye shades, an opalescent black eyeliner, a shimmer highlighter for the cheeks and a deep red gloss for the lips. Inspired by a Russian fairy tale and based on the company’s best-selling mascara, Fresh Supernova, Firebird is designed to thicken, lengthen and curl lashes. “Supernova gives your lashes a thick, dark and more defined look, whereas the soft lightweight fibers on the Firebird brush gives it a feathery and flirty feel,” said Alina Roytberg, Fresh’s co-founder and creative director.

Fresh+Twilight+Freshface+Glow Its Fresh, Exciting*: New Products From Fresh, Coming This FallFresh has also come out with Twilight Freshface Glow, a multifunctional illuminating cream. The primer is designed to be used as a highlighter along cheekbones, brow bones and décolletage. On the retail front, Fresh has plans to open several freestanding stores by the end of the year.

This month, the company will open a location in Century City, Calif., followed by another store in Dallas’ Northpark Center in October. The company is also looking to open a store in Philadelphia (oh please, please…with Sugar Lip Treatment on top!) along with additional stores in the Northeast.
