If You Have Hair, The Wet Brush is a Must Have


For years, I have used an oversized wide-tooth comb to detangle my notoriously impossible to detangle post-shampoo hair. The amount of hair that would get caught in the teeth was somewhat alarming. But I chalked it up to the fact that I only wash my hair once a week - so maybe the hair loss really wasn't all that CONTINUE READING

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. I CONTINUE READING

Want to slim your nose, open up your eyes, or chisel your cheekbones? You could go the plastic surgery route, but that’s so expensive – not to mention permanent. Luckily, Stila’s got a solution for all the fickle penny-pinchers out there.

contour Be A Shady Lady With Stila’s Contouring TrioThe Stila Contouring Trio is a set of three shading powders to sculpt your facial features. If the word ‘contour’ is dredging up frightful memories of the 1980’s, be not afraid. Stila has modernized the art of contouring, and made it super-easy to follow.

Each compact contains three shades: light (a high-lighting powder), dark (a low-lighting powder), flash (a soft neutral shimmer), a step by step simple instructions on how to contour cheeks, nose and eye, and some cute lights that surrounds the mirror.

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to follow the directions and replicate the looks – not to mention how flattering the shading powders were on my skin tone.

And here’s the best thing about this kit…at the end of the night when I was starting to miss my petite, cat nose and chipmunk cheeks, I simply washed my face.

The Stila Contouring Trio is available at Sephora and stilacosmetics.com.

Fafi Beauty02 s Paris In Springtime: Fafi for MAC
New from MAC is the Fafi Color Collection – now available at MAC stores and counters everywhere.

MAC Fafi Paris In Springtime: Fafi for MACInspired by the graphic expression of French graffiti artist Fafi, this hip Spring collection includes is filled with bold, empowering hues, unapologetically girly lip shades of pearly pinks and tangerine reds, iridescent powder, brown, blue and green Paint Pots and Quads, and whimsical cosmetic accessories.

“We had the idea on a shoot to capture the spirit of a young woman having fun playing — with clothes, technology, fashion,” said James Gager, senior vice president and creative director of MAC Cosmetics worldwide. “We were inspired by Japanese anime, and as we researched the movement, we discovered Fafi. We asked if she would collaborate with us on a photo concept, and the creation began from there.”

Glamo%2520group%2520framed%2520new All Purpose Powder
Don’t ya just love when a product does double beauty duty? Me too. That’s why I was so excited to get my hands on Glamo-Glitz by Scarlett Cosmetics.

Glamo-Glitz is a one-of-a-kind product that can be used in seven different ways! These mineral-based loose cosmetic dusts are multi-functional, and are used on eyes, cheeks, lips, body, highlighting and even for mascara. Here’s how it works…

Eye Shadow: Use wet or dry and sweep lightly or dramatically over lid.

Eye Liner: Dip an eyelining brush into water and then into Glamo-Glitz, and sweep along lash line. The ones with glitter look fabulous this way!

Lips: Put petroleum jelly on lips then mix one part water with two parts Glamo-Glitz and dab onto lips.

Mascara: Mix two parts water with one part Glamo-Glitz and put onto lashes with a disposable mascara wand. Need a shocking teal mascara but can’t find it? No problem, make one from your Glamo-Glitz. Do not wear glitter formulas if you have contact lenses, though.

Cheeks: Dip a blush brush into your Glamo-Glitz and swep onto cheeks.

Decollete: Get a big, fat brush and brush over this area – as well as shoulders. Very sexy!

Nail Polish: Adding your choice of Glamo-Glitz color to clear nail polish can make a custom color. It blends smoothly so you don’t have to worry about clumps and the nail polish not drying. Try mixing one that has glitter in it!

In the photo, you can see a few of my favorite Glamo-Glitz shades (from top to bottom – Gypsy, Mombasa, and Pop Star). I wet the powders so that they would photograph more vividly; but please note that they also can be used for a sheer wash of color. That’s why they’re so great – because they’re all-purpose!

Scarlett Cosmetics are sold by select retailers in the U.S., U.K., and Hong Kong. But no matter where you’re from, you can live the Glamo-Glitz life by visiting scarlettcos.com.
