Two Twilight-Inspired Beauty Lines To Launch This Fall

twilight Two Twilight Inspired Beauty Lines To Launch This FallTwilight Beauty, a new cosmetics brand themed after the series of films, will launch two lines debuting this Fall: Luna Twilight and Volturi Twilight. The two lines will be available in conjunction with the release of the second film, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which arrives in theaters on November 20, 2009.

Esmy Mancia and Kimberly Clark of All About Beauty, the product development team behind numerous bestselling lines, developed the cosmetic products for Twilight Beauty, together with Cristina Bartolucci, the founder and Creative Director of DuWop Cosmetics.

“We have worked tirelessly to create innovative cosmetics of high quality to serve as the backbone for both lines,” explains Clark. “Twilight Beauty has coupled these products of note with edgy, sophisticated packaging that is undeniably striking.”

“With over 70 products, Twilight Beauty provides a unique and exceptional makeup experience that can be enjoyed by everyone from Twilight enthusiasts to women looking to highlight their own radiance,” adds Bartolucci.

Luna Twilight reflects the mood and spirit of the saga’s iconic female characters, presenting a collection that creates a harmonious blend between soft, natural beauty and stunning, fierce splendor. Notable products from the Luna Twilight line include First Light Body and Face Glow for radiant illumination and Gleam Metallic Mascara for captivating lashes.

Volturi Twilight offers entry into Twilight’s exclusive coven through use of the Volturi family crest as the brand’s logo. The line features Foreshadow Primer, an ultra-sheer eye base that provides the ultimate prep for a smoother, crease-proof eye shadow application that is coupled with loose glitter dust, called Labrynth Shadows. The highly pigmented loose powder shadows and the lid primer are housed in stackable pots, providing the ability to mix and match the colors to create personal, one-of-a-kind eye shadow favorites.

Luna Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 at Dillard’s and Nordstrom. Volturi Twilight will be available September 15, 2009 through specialty retailers. Both lines will be sold at, the exclusive website for both brands.

First Look: Project Runway Season Six

The BS knockoff that is Bravo’s The Fashion Show (they booted Reco in part 1 of the finale, but let James Paul and his trash bag creations stay…discuss amongst yourselves) just makes me appreciate Project Runway all the more. And I’m so excited that season six will make its much-anticipated debut on Lifetime Television on Thursday, August 20 at 10 PM ET/PT.

Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia will guide sixteen contestants as they showcase their design skills to see who makes the cut for Fashion Week. Filmed in Los Angeles and New York City, this season will feature influential guest judges from the worlds of fashion, music, film and television.

Can’t wait? Me neither. The Project Runway blog is pretty entertaining, and should keep me from twitching until the August premiere.

project+runway+season+six+cast Project Runway Returns On August 20th

Mark your calendars and set your DVR. Project Runway returns to television on August 20th.

But starting this season, you’ll have to tune into Lifetime instead of Bravo to see who makes the cut and who gets auf’ed. Rumor has it that season six will be steeped in controversy. Tim Gunn dishes to the Miami Herald, “There’s a big time shocker, some purported cheating….the blogs will be clogged. They won’t be able to vent enough about it.”

Visit the Project Runway section of for more information about the designers and the new season. There’s enough tasty morsels to tide you over until the premiere.

Comb For Curls

ouidad+double+detangler+comb Comb For CurlsHolla at my curly girls!

Ouidad’s new Double Detangler comb is specially designed for girls with curls. The double rows of teeth eliminate difficult knots and prevents from springing back and re-tangling. Longer teeth reach through the most dense curly hair. And the teeth’s rounded tips are gentle on the scalp.

Ouidad customer Jill raves, “I can’t believe how easy it was to get this comb through my disgusting, knotty hair. I can’t stop brushing my hair – it feels like fingers massaging your head if you brush close to your scalp. Ouidad has outdone herself with this brilliant invention.”

The Double Detangler retails for $24.95 and is available at
