Because Shaving is the Pits: DERMAdoctor Gorilla Warfare Antiperspirant Giveaway!


My hair grows like a weed. Unfortunately, the hair of which I speak is not on my head. My legs and underarms give my razor a workout. If I shave in the morning, by afternoon, I've got stubble. And forget about skipping days...unless I want to look like Sasquatch. Getting rid of the hair is not only expensive (I CONTINUE READING

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: BlowPro Perfect Shower Cap


The shower and my chemically-straightened hair are frenemies. Every seventh day when I wash my hair, they get along great in a shampoo Shangri-la. But the rest of the week, I employ a shower cap to keep the steam from undoing the silky straightness. I have been wearing shower caps since I was a child, and I’ve tried them CONTINUE READING

Get Catty With Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses


I've been searching for some cat eye sunnies for forever. On a whim, I bought these Wildfox Catfarer Sunglasses from Shopbop - hoping that they wouldn't look too cartoonish. Even though I was afraid they'd be too large, I'm digging the oversized frames. They make a statement without overwhelming my face. And the cat eye shape is subtle, so it's not CONTINUE READING

Peep My Polish: Revlon Top Speed Nail Enamel in Superstitious


Now that I have two kids - and the youngest being 6 weeks old - I needed to get better acquainted with quick-dry nail polish options. I hardly have time to do anything, let alone a DIY - so I needed to find some lacquers that fit my new lifestyle. Yesterday, while going my grocery shopping, I picked up Revlon CONTINUE READING

Tatcha, I'm So Glad I Gotcha


I'm home on maternity leave, so I spend an inordinate amount of time nursing my daughter, burping her and changing her diapers - all the while, watching hours of QVC. I don't know what it is, but I am mesmerized by QVC demonstrations. If I'm channel surfing and I happen to land on QVC, it's damn near impossible for CONTINUE READING

Is Allure Magazine Losing Its Allure?

hilary+and+jessica+allure+covers Is Allure Magazine Losing Its Allure?
As I was straightening up my apartment today (fine way to spend a holiday – I know), I was rummaging through my collection of magazines…trying to decide which ones were past their prime and needed to go in the trash. That’s when I noticed the similarities between the May and June 2008 covers of Allure Magazine.

kate+beckinsale+allure+cover Is Allure Magazine Losing Its Allure?In reality, Hilary Duff and Jessica Alba look nothing alike. But thanks to their mirror poses, side-swept bangs, and rose-tinted lips, the two starlets are doppelgangers. And if you look back to March’s issue, you’ll notice that Kate Beckinsale’s cover shot is almost identical.

Allure is one of my favorite mags. And I recognize that options are somewhat limited when you’re taking headshots. But c’mon. What I love most about beauty is the limitless possibilities…it’s transformative power. If you peruse the pages of Allure, you’ll see some stunning hair and makeup – especially in the editorials. But then, the lackluster covers looks stand in complete opposition.

It’s true you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. But in the world of magazines, the cover can have a huge impact on newsstand sales. And, in my opinion, magazine editors really need to wake up, smell the Chanel No. 5, and start giving us diverse, more alluring covers.

Below is a re-cap of that post (I’ve made some grammar/spelling edits and included links to the products Kim recommends). Enjoy!

kim+kardashian2 Kim Kardashian Answers Fans Beauty Questions
Kristina asks:
Hey Kim…love you and your sisters…LOVE the show! Quick question: In the season premiere of Season 2 Khloe was wearing an awesome shade of pink nail polish when she “cornered Scott.” Can you tell me the shade or at least the brand by chance? Thanks.

Kim answers:
It’s by the company Essie and shade is called Limo-Scene.

Lily asks:
Hi Kim! I love you. As J.Lo is your inspiration, you are mine! I really would like to know what is the perfume you like the most! And for night too!

Kim answers:
I usually stick to the same scent — my all time every day scent is Michael by Michael Kors.

Yiana asks:
Kim, I am your biggest fan. What is your diet/workout regime and what kind of products do you use for your hair?

Kim answers:
I try to eat as healthy as possible, but make sure I work out all the time. I have a trainer Kathy Kaehler who I work out with all the time. We actually just made a work out video which is simple and easy to follow along with — especially if you are busy and don’t have any exercise equipment. As for my hair, I like to switch up products all the time to keep it fresh and vibrant. I use anything from Herbal Essences to Finesse to salon products.

Men’s Fragrance News

josh hartnett 300x400 Mens Fragrance NewsWhen I first heard that Josh Hartnett was teaming up with Armani for their newest men’s fragrance, I thought, “It’s a match made in heaven…if the cologne’s name is Unibrow.”

Alas, the name doesn’t have anything to do with Josh’s fuzzy lower-forehead. He will be the face of Emporio Armani Diamonds for Men, which will be unveiled next month during Spring/Summer fashion week in Milan.

Giorgio Armani said of Hartnett: “Both on and off screen he has a charm and charisma that is magnetic. His individuality, allure and nonchalant way of being are all qualities which inspired me in the creation of this new fragrance.” Apparently, Mr. Armani hasn’t seen Pearl Harbor, Hollywood Homicide, The Black Dahlia, Halloween H20…

deseo for men Mens Fragrance NewsIn other men’s fragrance news, Jennifer Lopez will release her first masculine fragrance, Deseo for Men, this September.

“I wanted to capture the intimate and personal nature of a man who is sexy, yet strong,” says J.Lo. “Deseo means desire. I wanted to take this meaning and put it behind the idea of one desiring another. The smell is warming and creates a provocative and sensual texture.”

The fragrance has “top notes of lemon, yuzu, red berries and cedar leaf; a heart of tobacco leaves, guaicwood and orris, and a dry down of sandalwood, cedarwood, patchouli, amber and vanilla.”

The Deseo for Men collection will include Eau de Toilette (1.7 oz for $45 and 3.4 oz for $55), a 3.4 oz aftershave balm ($40), and a 2.4 oz deodorant ($16).

Rihanna, my favorite Bajan bombshell, is Elle’s June cover girl.

rihanna1 Rihanna’s On The Cover Of Elle (Ella Ella Eh Eh Eh)Her interview with the mag runs the gamut. Lighthearted topics include the decision to cut her hair and singing in front of Jay Z for the first time. The interview turns more serious, when she opens up about her once-strained relationship with an alcoholic father.

Plus, Rihanna hints about whether Chris Brown is the one standing under her umbrella.

And check out exclusive behind-the-scenes video from the cover shoot.

The June 2008 issue is on newsstands now.
