Carson & Kim Team Up For Caress...

Fashion expert Carson Kressley has tapped Kim K to help launch the Caress Skinwear Collection. Skin is the ultimate fashion statement and taking care of it starts in the shower....duh!

Gorgeous skin is always in style on the red carpet, so when I want to make a statement I know my skin has to look beautiful and even toned,” says Kardashian. One of my favorite finds is the new Caress Evenly Gorgeous body wash - it has karite butter and burnt brown sugar … it makes my skin look and feel amazing. The Caress Skinwear Collection compliments my entire wardrobe and gives me beautiful skin right out of the shower.”

Caress is giving away free samples of the body wash while supplies last. Click here to request yours.

Am I Late?...

I mean I've heard about it, seen it and passed by it several times at Sephora, but I never tried it. Well, finally I did. I got a pink all my own with Smashbox's intuitive lip gloss, O-gloss! It comes out of the tube crystal clear but changes to a fabulous pinky red once it's applied to the lips. In it is Goji Berry-C Complex™, ginkgo biloba, and pomegranate seed antioxidants. Marine botanicals and avocado oil moisturize and give a lustrous shine.

Try it...you'll like it!


Makeup How To: Jennifer Lopez...

One of my favorite makeup artists, Troy Jensen, had the opportunity to work with my favorite fashionista. Last month, Jenny Lo attended Andrea Lieberman's clothing launch at Barney's in Bev Hills. When asked if he would like to glam up La Lopez, Troy jumped at the opportunity. Actually his exact response was "Hell Yeah".

Wearing one of Andrea Lieberman's dresses and a pair of killer platform Loubs, Jenny's look was effortless and fabulous!

To create her daytime glam look, Troy used Dior's line. Generally, he likes to use products within one brand of make-up. Below are the products and steps he used (click on image for larger view) :

If You Must Lather...

So, I was doing a little beauty spring cleaning yesterday and stumbled on a bottle of Kerastase shampoo ( for dry hair ). Although I have stopped using sulfate shampoos altogether, I must say that if I were to recommend a great sulfate shampoo, it would have to be this one. When I was using this shampoo, my hair always felt soft and was super manageable. It even worked on my daughter's super thick, curly hair! The only downside is that it's a little on the pricey side. One bottle will run you about $35. BUT, if you go to your nearest Loehman's, you can grab a bottle for about $20 - $25. It's definitely worth a try.

Check their selection out here.

Halle by Halle Berry...

In collaboration with Coty, Halle Berry launches her new fragrance this month, Halle by Halle Berry. In a recent interview with WWD, Halle explains:

"[Before my fragrance] I was mixing other brands that shall remain nameless to make my own scent with fig and mimosa,” she said. “With Halle, I added olibanum, which is an African root, which brings spice to the fragrance, and sandalwood, which smooths everything out and makes it yummy. It’s very sensual, very natural, very much reflective of the outdoors.”

Ok, smell like Halle mission,down!....now how can I look like her?....I mean WOW...if this is what 42 can look like...I'm so ready for it!

Available for $35 at Sears
