Ken Paves Healthy Hair Boost Up Color Drops

ken+paves+boost+up+color+drops Ken Paves Healthy Hair Boost Up Color DropsAs soon as I heard about Ken Paves Healthy Hair Boost Up Color Drops, I added it to my ‘Needed This, Like, Yesterday’ list.

Boost Up Color Drops can be used to extend salon hair colorings and keep color fresh – or to instantly brighten, darken or add warmth to your regular hair color. In addition to its color enhancing properties, the product also moisturizes, invigorates, and conditions and replenishes lost protein. The best part? One shampoo and it’s back to the old you. “It’s like cosmetics for your hair,” Paves says.

Boost Up Color Drops are available in six shades: Beige, Black, Brown, Honey, Platinum and Red.

Get a .96 oz bottle for $39.95. Or purchase the Color Booster Explorer Kit from HSN (which includes a full-sized bottle of the Boost Up Color Drops plus shampoo, conditioner, shine serum and hair spray from Ken Paves’ new Healthy Hair line) for the same price. This is a no-brainer.

Healthy Hair products are also sold at Henri Bendel. And sometime soon, you’ll see this line popping up at Beauty.com, Macy’s, Ulta, and fine salons near you!

Dishing On The Dish

thedish Dishing On The DishHave you seen The Dish on The Style Network?

Hosted by Danielle Fishel (aka Topanga from Boy Meets World), this show takes an irreverent look at the weekly mishaps and meltdowns of celebrity fashion and lifestyle.

If you’re a Spoiled Pretty regular, you’re gonna love this show. It’s like The Soup for the ladies.

The Dish is one of my new favorite guilty pleasures…along with VH1’s Glam God (hosted by tranny-esque Vivica A. Fox) and The Cho Show. Watch them while your man is in the other room, or out doing ‘man’ things.

Get In Shape Girl

rhythmic+gymnastics Get In Shape Girl
Are rhythmic gymnastics Olympic sports anymore? I’m feeling too lazy to do the research. But if trampoline is a sport, someone needs to bust out some balls, hoola hoops and ribbons right quick.

As a child, I remember tirelessly training for the Olympics with my Get In Shape Girl equipment. And I know I wasn’t the only one…

Kim Kardashian’s Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!

Kim+Kardashian Kim Kardashians Video Makeup Lesson: Part IV, Lashes and Lips!
I know that you Kim Kardashian fans have been anxiously waiting for the finale of her “Smokey Eye” video tutorial. Today, Kim and her makeup artist, Stephen Moleski, show us how to finish the look with lush lashes and kissable lips.

* Stephen recommends fake eyelashes with a clear base, because they’re more pliable.

* Cut fake lashes to desired length.

* Apply Duo Surgical Adhesive to fake lash strip and let dry until adhesive gets tacky.

* While looking down, slip on lash strip – then press false lashes into your own so they blend.

* Kim uses MAC Select/Sheer Loose Powder in NC45 as a bronzer.

* Sweep a highlighting powder under the eye.

* Remove mascara wand from tube (Kim is partial to MAC Zoom Lash) and wipe excess with a tissue to prevent clumping. Then apply to lashes.

* Line lips with a liner that closely matches your natural lip color (Kim uses MAC Lip Pencil in Stripdown), then blend.

* Fill in lips with a pale lipstick, like MAC Lipstick in Angel.

* Top off those lovely lips with a gorgeous gloss, like Kim’s fave, NARS Lip Gloss in Turkish Delight.

* Finally, sweep a little powder blush onto cheeks; Stephen uses MAC Pro Powder Blush in Shy and Cheek
