Monday, December 18th, 2006

No matter what your style is, there are two staples that every fashion-forward woman can not leave home without – a fabulous mascara and the perfect pair pumps (Richard Tyler pumps, of course). Since this is a beauty site, let’s talk about the mascara first – Max Factor’s new Volume Couture Mascara. Even though this [...]

This photo is for Mom – thanks again for my Black Satin! P.S. The little Vietnamese lady who gave me this manicure thought “I was going to look like Halloween” with my nails like this. P.P.S. Thanks Joel for being the patient photographer!

Review: E.L.F. Cosmetics

Thursday, December 14th, 2006

My friend Julie and both dream about leaving our respective jobs to work in the beauty industry. Right Julie? Until then, we will each maintain our product addictions. Here is Julie’s review of the much talked about E.L.F line of cosmetics: Being the product whore that I am, I was SO excited to get an [...]

“Product Pimping”

Thursday, December 14th, 2006

Earlier this week I posted something about how publicists aren’t utilizing blogs nearly enough. The crux of it is, while they say they see the importance of the blogging world, their actions don’t prove it. Well, I recently read another article on the Pierce Mattie Blog that may explain why. Perhaps they don’t know how [...]

Maybelline’s Garnier to launch Skin Care Line – I wonder if all the packing for these products will be their signature bright green. I’m intrigued. It all goes back to that line I’ve heard so many times while researching skin care – just because it costs more doesn’t mean it’s better. The Hilton Brand enters [...]

Before I go on in detail what this is all about, first let me tell you – don’t get all excited because sadly, this promotion is only taking place in London. However, the concept is fabulous, and Max Factor should consider executing in here in the States next year. Here’s the deal: Basically we all [...]

PR Industry not Utilizing Blogs

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

I think we can all agree that the power of blogs these days is limitless. They are valuable, influential, inciteful, resourceful, and of course, the least expensive media outlet. This is especially true in the beauty/skin care industry because women love to talk about things they love, and things they hate. So, it’s a no [...]

Scarlett Johansson for Louis Vuitton

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

I know this isn’t necessarily beauty related, but fashion and beauty overlap. Louis’ ads are always so flawless, and while I’m not necessarily a Scarlett fan, I love these ads.

Weekend Blend

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

And we’re back! Miss me? Thought so. So, you’re reading this, looking at the title and thinking, it’s not still the weekend. And you’re right, but I’m still getting caught up from the weekend, and posting things that I meant to post then. I usually like to post 2-3 times a day, and I wasn’t [...]
