MAC Tendertones: A Lovely Surprise

honey+bare MAC Tendertones: A Lovely Surprise
I’m the type of person who loves surprises. As long as they’re good ones.

tendertones+honey+bare MAC Tendertones: A Lovely SurpriseTake, for example, MAC’s new Tendertone Lip Balm in Honey Bare. In the pot, it’s a shimmery honeydew melon. The folks at MAC describe it as “sheer peach with white pearl.”

Either way, it should’ve spelled disaster for a tan girl like me. Instead, there are no words to accurately describe how delectably delish this balm is.

mac+honey+bare+on+lips MAC Tendertones: A Lovely SurpriseLeave it to MAC to find a way to make something so wrong look so amazingly right. On my skin, it’s honey golden goodness. It looks irresistably sexy.

There are nine other shades in the Tendertones collection, but Honey Bare is the hidden gem. Snatch it up before word gets out.

Pearl Jam Rocks, But Eddie’s Hair Needs A Little Vitalogy

Eddie+Vedder+Hair Pearl Jam Rocks, But Eddies Hair Needs A Little Vitalogy
Last night, Señor Spoiled Pretty and I saw Pearl Jam in concert. After 18 years, they still sound incredible and put on a ridiculously amazing live show. But one thing I couldn’t ignore was the state of Eddie Vedder’s hair.

In the heyday of grunge, Eddie’s wavy locks were glossy and lush. Last night, however, Eddie’s hair looked fried and – ironically – grungy. I realize that Eddie’s a surfer and could give a rats ass about split ends. But that didn’t keep this beauty junkie from wanting to bum rush the stage, armed with one of my new beauty finds.

elasticizer Pearl Jam Rocks, But Eddies Hair Needs A Little VitalogyEddie is a prime candidate for Elasticizer, a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment from Philip Kingsley that dramatically heals your hair after just one use. It delivers a dose of moisture to the core of the cuticle – leaving hair silky, shiny, and supple. Suitable for all hair types, Elasticizer won’t thicken hair or weigh it down. It provides UV protection too, even after washing – helping prolong the life of color treatments.

Just apply to wet hair, concentrating on mid-lengths and ends, and work through for a minute. Then shampoo and condition as usual. For severely damaged hair, cover with a plastic cap for 20 minutes before shampooing.

Elasticizer is available at philipkingsley.com.

If you have a tattoo, you probably know that the #1 enemy of your body art is the sun. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Tattoo Potion Number 1 SPF 30 prevents your tat from fading, keeping the colors as vibrant as the day you got inked.

My friend, Angela, has the most fabulous nails.

With nail polish, she goes for the gusto. Right now, Ange is rocking OPI’s Pompeii Purple – a shimmery magenta. Oooh…pretty!
