What a difference a week can make in the life of a teenager! Back on November 20, Selena Gomez was poised to launch her new collaboration with Adidas, in perfectly appropriate teen attire. Then exactly a week later she pulled out the stops in a stunning panel dress that showed off her pretty figure. But both looks were topped off by Selena’s preference for a shiny, nude lip color.

Selena’s look is easily copied with Dior Addict Lipstick. Their sheer color formula packs high shine and soft moisture into one killer lip color. For a more tannish nude, like Selena sported for the Adidas shoot, Dior Addict Lipstick in Tulle 214 (light beige) should do the trick. But if you’re looking for a sheer and shiny pink like she opted for on the red carpet, Dior Addict Lipstick Urban 178 (sheer pale pink) is your best bet.

You can buy Dior Addict Lipstick in 28 shades (including the two mentioned above) for $30 at
Ole-Henriksen-Celebrate-The-Truth-Kit.jpgIf you can only ask for one beauty gift this season (perish the thought!), make it a good one. And we’re standing behind the Ole Henriksen Celebrate The Truth Kit. This kit has every product from the Ole Henriksen line that we’re completely obsessed with. It comes with the following products:

Truth Serum Collagen Booster
Truth Creme Advanced Hydration
Truth Is In The Eyes Eye Peel Concentrate
Truth To Go Wipes

And they all come presented in a vibrant orange travel pouch!

Plus, every product in the Truth line smells absolutely fantastic. They’re formulated with Vitamin C to brighten and hydrate the skin, and they smell just like oranges! We’ve long been using every product in this kit and we can vouch for their utter amazingness.

If you suffer from severely dry skin in the cold, winter months, this is the cream for you. It helps even the most cracked, miserable, scaliest of skins return to a soft and supple state. Its non-greasy formula won’t leave you feeling shiny or slick and its super-absorbent qualities mean it penetrates deeply and restores skin quickly. It’s also completely natural and safe for use on the body or face … personally, my hands practically scream for it.

You can buy First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream for $28 at
Soap-&-Glory-Clean-On-Me.jpgI try a lot of shower gels. And I mean a lot. Well, recently, there’s been one on constant rotation in my shower … Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Moisture Shower Gel.

I love the way it smells. It’s scented with a combination of fresh bergamot, mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, oakmoss, amber, woody notes and warm vanilla. A lot of notes to find in one shower gel? Maybe. Do they combine to create an intoxicatingly wonderful scent? Absolutely.

Plus, only a few pumps are enough to create such an amazing amount of lather on my pouf! At this rate, I’m going to have this shower gel brightening up my tub for quite some time, even though I use it so often!
