Wipes With a Kick...

Dermalogica's Skin Purifying Wipes are a great "wipe" choice for combination or oily skin beauties who tend to breakout. Unlike most wipes, these contain salicylic acid, a great pimple fighter and exfoliator. These are especially great for those of you that workout before or after work. Throw these in your gym bag and wipe away makeup, oil, and workout sweat.


A Coincidence?...

So, Ty Inc., famous for their Beenie Babies, have two new babies on the block. Their names...Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia. BUT, according spokeswoman Tania Lundeen, the dolls are not Obama dolls, they just happen to like these names and decided to make brown doll babies with pigtails.

Says Lundeen:

"There's nothing on the dolls that refers to the Obama girls...It would not be fair to say they are exact replications of these girls. They are not.”

Why "Sasha" and "Malia":

because they "are beautiful names, "not because of any resemblance to Malia and Sasha Obama..." Lundeen insisted.

Um yeah...OK!! If I wasn't such a professional (wink, wink)...my first reaction to this would go a little sumthn' like this: "(BLEEP) please!"


Stila Loves Barbie...

To celebrate Barbie's 50th anniversary, Stila has teamed up with Mattel to bring you four fun-filled Decades of Beauty Cans. Each can includes an eyeshadow/blush palette, a lipglaze and a waterproof mascara needed to re-create beauty looks that are iconic of the past five decades.

1980 Foxy Doll - sultry look that features coral lips and earth-toned shadow—the very look that made this doll the epitome of bold 1980's glamour.

1959 #1 Ponytail Doll - striking red lips and black-rimmed cat eyes, this doll is the epitome of 1950s glamour.

2000 Jewel Doll -
a hip, sparkly look featuring shimmery shadows and glossy pink lips—the very look that exemplified "new millennium pretty."

Cosmetics Lawsuit = FREE Beauty Products Nationwide...

OMGAH! January 20th is shaping up to be the bestest day ever in 2009! First Obama, now this!

Beginning Tuesday, for one week only, Bloomies, Nordies and a slew of other high end stores are being forced to give away $175 million worth of beauty products nationwide. "Por que" you say? Because of a major lawsuit filed against the stores in California in 2003. Apparently, the stores held back inventory of high end products, uped their prices and conspired to never offer discounts. So damn shady. Product companies include Chanel, Christian Dior, Lancome and Clarins, just to name a few.

Shoppers only get one item per cosmetic company, while supplies last. Products are available to ANYONE who says they purchased department store cosmetics from at least one of the department stores between May 29, 1994 and July 16, 2003.

For a complete list of participating stores and products that will be distributed click here.

Check out Allure's tutorial on how to achieve the perfect brow for your face, on your own. Click here to watch!


FREE Product...

Head on over to Suave right now to get a coupon for one FREE bottle of SUAVE Shampoo, Conditioner, Hair Spray, Styling Aid, Body Wash, or Body Lotion. I know, I know, SUAVE products don't exactly break the bank, but FREE is always better than $3 in my book...

The red lip was a hit with some

And not so much w/ others

A few opted for that barely there look

My FAV of the night was Hayden...Classic smokey eye, nude lip & glowing skin

And of course, a red carpet wouldn't be a red carpet w/o a WTF moment

I mean really...WTF!!!

Critics Choice Awards

Celebs hit up the Critics Choice Awards last night in Santa Monica California. Most of the ladies opted for a fresh, barely there makeup look... which I LUV!

Here are a few of my favs for the night:

Angela Bassett was a little more daring and rocked a lavender shadow and a nude lip, proving it's ok to be a little daring at any age. Me likey!

And this pic has absolutely nothing to do w/ makeup...but I luv it and wanted to share!



I'm just a simple girl with a complicated obsession, I love all things beauty...and I need to talk about it!
