Found: Makeup For Your Hair

You know how primer creates a perfect canvas for foundation application, by filling in fine lines and pores? Well, what would you say if I told you that I found a product that does the same thing for your hair? Get out, you say?!?! No, you get out!

Porosity, a leave-in spray by White Sands, is marketed as “makeup for hair.” The product acts as a concealer, filling in the blemishes found in each hair strand transforming dry, damaged locks into “illuminating, flawless hair.”

But does it work? As per the instructions, I have been lightly spraying on my towel-dried hair, after shampooing and conditioning. After blow-drying an styling my hair, I noticed a marked improvement in the appearance of my hair. It had a nice gloss to it, and my ends didn’t seem as damaged. My hair felt healthier too…softer and silkier. Porosity made my highlights more brilliant and added a lovely, light fragrance to my hair.

Porosity even improves the effectiveness and performance of chemical and other salon services. From correcting blonde tones to increasing hair color performance, Porosity can also be used to:

• Bleach Highlights: If added to the mixture, Porosity speeds up the processing time and allows the bleach to achieve optimum performance levels. This results in even tones. Immediately eliminate blotchy blondes and bleeding at the scalp since Porosity moistens the bleach while lifting.

• Color Processing: If added to your color, it enhances the tone of your color and creates ultimate shine.

• Pre-Wrap for Perms: If applied before a perm, it equalizes each strand’s porosity and achieves a consistent curl pattern from end to end. Instantly achieve incredible waves on all hair types.

Kate Somerville Coming To A Store Near You

Kate Somerville’s skin care products will soon be available at a store near you. This summer, the line will be popping up at Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Henri Bendel.

Never tried Kate Somerville, but looking for a 1st product recommendation? Look no further than ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. This clinical-strength exfoliant decongests stubborn skin and improves a blah complexion. The active fruit enzymes eliminate dead skin cells, diminish bacteria and reveal a healthy, rosy glow.

According to Kate, it’s the next best thing to visiting her Los Angeles clinic – and it’s especially effective in combating acne and discoloration.

ExfoliKate comes in the most genius jar; it dispenses out the ExfoliKate without letting air in. Which means the product stays fresh, for effective exfoliation use after use. And ExfoliKate isn’t a time or labor intensive treatment. Use 1 to 2 times per week, apply in an even layer, leave on for 20-30 seconds, and wash off. You will notice a dramatically softer and smoother skin after just one treatment! I always use ExfoliKate a few hours before a date with Mr. Spoiled Pretty or a special event.

So be on the lookout for Kate Somerville in your neck of the woods. Having Kate this close has its pros and cons. On the one hand, your face has never looked better. On the other hand, this line has so many winners, your credit card will surely get a workout.

Lise Watier Summer 2008: La Toscana

Yesterday, Mr. Spoiled Pretty and I celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary with dinner at Barclay Prime, a “luxury boutique steakhouse” in the Rittenhouse section of Philadelphia. My dress and heels were basic black, so I decided to wear color on my eyes. Lise Watier’s new summer collection, La Toscana, provided the perfect palette to make my peepers pop!

The shadows in the Eye Quartet in Mer (Sea Turquoise, Satin Terracotta, Soft and Matte Sand, and a Rose-Brown bathed with Golden Sheen) have been baked on a ceramic tile to pay homage to Tuscany. They can be used wet or dry; dry for a light, diaphanous effect, or wet for an intense, opaque finish.

I lined the inner rims of my eyes with the Glitter Pencil in Turquoise – a smooth, pigment-rich liner.

If you’re more “turf” than “surf”, try the Terre Quartet and Glitter Pencil in Vert.

And be sure to check out La Toscana’s other offerings:

Pink Marble Blush Powder
Toscana Gloss Sticks (ultra-hydrating with an olive oil base)
Havana Dry Oil Body Glow
Havana Precious Bronzing Pearls
Havana Sun Dust Bronzing Powder

Can’t Get Enough Sex? Pick Up Marie Claire

The movie’s only been out for a week, and you’ve seen it multiple times. The film made you nostalgic, so you broke out your SATC box set and have taking a trip down memory lane with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. You downloaded the soundtrack and memorized all of the words to Fergie’s “Labels Or Love.” But you’re still hungry from more Sex. How do you satiate your appetite? Marie Claire has you covered, literally.

The magazine dabbled in some four-play for its July 2008 cover. At the newsstands, Sarah Jessica Parker will be the face you see. Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis, and Cynthia Nixon will be randomly sent to the mailboxes of Marie Claire subscribers.
