Bath & Body Works Cooling Gel Lotion Needs A New Name


A few weeks ago, I paid a visit to my local Bath & Body Works store. I was on the hunt for a tropical-smelling body wash that wouldn't break the bank, and B&BW seemed like a good place to search. When I entered the store, I was greeted my a really nice saleswoman who asked me what I was CONTINUE READING

Laura Mercier Master Class: Makeup Bag Must-Haves in Your 30s


Every month, my girlfriends from college and I get together for dinner in the Philadelphia area. We started this tradition about two years ago, and - of course - we have a great time catching up and reminiscing!  Most of them are product-obsessed (like me), and most have been through some sort of make-up introductory when we became "of age" to wear it.  Now CONTINUE READING

Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry


One of my all-time favorite products is Dermadoctor KP Duty, a dual action body exfoliator that combines the benefits of a chemical peel and microdermabrasion. It was developed to treat chicken skin - those little red bumps that many people get on their upper arms. But, for years, I've been using it to exfoliate my legs pre-shave.  There's really no body exfoliator CONTINUE READING

Kim Kardashian’s Favorite Hair Styling Cream

Posted on by daneen in Beauty Tips, Celebrities, Hair Styling | Leave a comment

kim kardashian grammy1 Kim Kardashians Favorite Hair Styling CreamWhat’s Kim Kardashain’s favorite styling cream? She loves Ojon Animated Styling Cream.

“It increases hair volume, adds separation and texture, boosts moisture and shine, and it’s non-greasy. I use it when my hair is down and I’m wearing a sleeker look. It’s also the perfect cream to use in a pony tail when you want it slicked back but not that oily-greasy look. You guys should try it!”

Kim+Kardashian+Curly Kim Kardashians Secret to Curly, Sexy Hair 24/7
On her blog, Kim Kardashian shares her secret to “curly, sexy hair 24/7.”

curly+sexy+hair+24 7+curl+spray Kim Kardashians Secret to Curly, Sexy Hair 24/7Many of you have left comments on the site asking how I achieve my full, curly hair look…

Part of what I do is use [Curly Sexy Hair] 24/7 Curls: It’s an instant-set curling spray that protects from the heat of curling irons and locks in shine. It has memory that creates long lasting curls.

Here’s how you use it: You section your dry hair then you spray it on evenly over each section before you use the curling iron. It really helps in protecting your hair but makes the curls last all day! I never just curl my hair without any product or it will fall so fast.

SAG Awards Beauty: Kate Winslet

kate winslet sag awards 2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate Winslet
This year at the 15th Annual SAG Awards, Best Supporting Actress winner Kate Winslet accessorized her gorgeous Narciso Rodriguez gown and dazzling Chopard jewels with a little help from Fekkai, Lancome, Avon and Serge Lutens.

kate+winslet+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate WinsletKate’s glamorous low bun and side swept bang were created by Frederic Fekkai stylist Renato Campora using Fekkai products. To get the look, apply More All Day Density Styling Whip to wet hair for added volume. On the bottom portion only apply Coiff Magnifique Ultra-Light Finishing Creme to ends for a smooth blowout and to protect hair from the heat of styling tools. Using the Large Round Brush, blow dry hair and part on the right side. Once completely dry, use a one inch curling iron throughout hair to create tousled movement with dimension. Apply Technician Glaze to ends working it through with fingers for texture that is not too heavy. Tease the top of the head – ever so slightly – to create a touch of height. Next pull hair back into a low ponytail. Create a loose braid and twist it around to form a bun. Secure with pins. Making a braid helps to keep the bun from appearing to severe and gives it the soft modern touch.

kate+winslet+lancome+sag+2009 SAG Awards Beauty: Kate WinsletCelebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey played up Kate’s eyes with lots of black eyeliner, mascara and shimmering shadow paired with a soft neutral palette on her lips and cheeks. Jillian used Lancôme Artliner in Noir on the upper lash line and then lightly dusted Jillian Dempsey Professional for Avon Eyeshadow Trio in Pebble Wash on the eyelid. She finished the eyes with a few coats of Lancôme Ôscillation Mascara in Black. For the lips, she used Serge Lutens nude lip liner and filled in the entire lip. Finally, she applied Color Fever Gloss in Engaging, a very sheer nude shade, for a high-shine pout.
