Jennifer Aniston Perfume

Hey chicas (particularly New Yorkers)!

If you’ve tried Jennifer Aniston’s new perfume and would like to participate in a short interview about your thoughts on her fragrance for the New York post you can e-mail Mandy Stdmiller at [email protected]

She’s interested in seeing what you think of the fragrance and you’ll possibly be quoted in an article that she has coming out for this Friday’s edition of the New York Post.

I just got off the phone and we had a nice chat about the fragrance. It’s quick, painless, and fun!

Hope to read your thoughts in the article this Friday!

Do Not Want: Scented SPF

Stella SPF 30+ Sunscreen Towelette

It always boggles my mind that folks don’t like scented skincare or lipgloss, etc…I’m not sensitive to these types of thing and absolutely love if my facial moisturizer is scented like strawberries or a banana split, obviously not but you’re getting the picture right?

But some things probably shouldn’t be scented….

Do not want scented SPF.

Yay or Nay: Emma Waton’s Lancome Look

Emma Watons Lancome Look

With the release of Deathly Hallows Part 2 come July we finally, with a heavy heart, get to lay our obsession with Harry Potter to rest.

Sad sigh.

Memo to self:
Bring tissues to premiere.

As we say our final good byes we also get to embrace the growth and maturity of stars like Emma Watson because let’s face it, Emma is here for the long run and we’ll be witness to her climb into Hollywood legend ever after the madness of HP has died down.

Emma recently got down to work for her Lancome ad campaign that I leaked to you a few months ago with famed fashion photographer Mario Testino in March in Paris.

This was actually the same day Lancome officially launched Emma Watson as one of their newest faces.

Musings of the Day: What Brand Do You Want Bringing Your BB Cream To You?

BB Creams Blemish Balm Creams

Dr. Jart recently launched two BB Creams to the US Market available exclusively at Sephora. This is a big step for the US market however sadly, my experience so far with BB Creams here in the US is lacking.

Dr. Jart, BRTC, Missha, Skin79, etc…are all popular BB Creams available in Korea and household names however larger brands we all know and love also have BB Creams available within the Asian market such as Dior, MAC, Lancome, etc….

This Summer, I believe you’ll start seeing the ripple effect of Dr. Jart’s US launch. It’ll be small at first but by Fall, BB Creams will finally be something that the US market will know of and hopefully embrace.

I already have confirmed news that Smashbox has a BB Cream of sorts that will be available exclusively from QVC. I also hear rumors of MAC finally bringing their BB Cream to the states and also a whisper about Clinique possibly launching one.

My question is, which brand would you like to see release a BB Cream here in the US?

Perhaps your favorite high end brands like Dior and Chanel?

Or maybe middle end brands such as Urban Decay or Too Faced?

Or maybe you want to hit up your local drugstore and grab one from Revlon or Covergirl?

Either way BB Creams are finally launching here in the US but whether or not our market actually embraces them or not only time will tell.

Beauty Most Unusual: Edible Perfume Because Smelling Beautiful from the Inside Out is Important!

Deo Perfume Candy

I admit it, I’m addicted to fine fragrances. Scent has the power to awaken the most wonderful feelings and memories. A spritz here and there can evoke feelings of happiness, cheer, and even excitement.

But did you ever think that maybe the traditional application methods such as a spritzing or misting would be replaced by consuming your fragrance?

Yes, like literally eating it.

Beauty Most Unusual?

Possibly!
