Trina Cosmetic Case.jpgAs you probably know by now, we love our beauty products. But when a trip arises, if you’re anything like us, you end up with about three to four plastic ziplock bags full of everything from eye cream to exfoliant. Now, ziplock bags may be completely functional - especially during the unfortunate event of a product explosion - but they aren’t at all chic or fabulous. 

Enter Trina Cosmetic Bags. We were sent the Kelly Stripe Lilac Deluxe Weekender to test (pictured), and we couldn’t be more pleased. The four-piece set is ideal for long weekend trips, and (if you pack light and sensibly), any vacation, really. 

We loved the plastic (read: wipeable and water-friendly) exterior, and the super soft, luxe interior. A heavy-duty zipper encases three durable plastic bags. One clear bag with no lining held all of our makeup, another small bag held our face wash, moisturizer, glasses, eye cream and razor, while a third, larger bag housed our hefty saline solution, toothbrush and paste, tweezers, deodorant and toner. 

Though there wasn’t any space left for bathing and hair-washing essentials (those are better suited for explosion-proof ziplocks), we were super pleased with being able to carry around all our must-have toiletries in one ultra-cute and classic case

Stars everywhere have been embracing a new trend in haircolor: Ombre highlights…darker haircolor and roots offset by painted on, sunkissed ends. Ombre is not a new technique, but the abundance of stars sporting them lately had brought new focus to the trend.

Most recently, fashion and beauty insiders went gaga when Jessica Biel debuted perfectly placed ombre streaks at the A-Team premiere in Madrid this week. Lauren Conrad, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, and Rachel Bilson have all embraced the trend, and Sarah Jessica Parker famously wore it as her alter-ego Carrie Bradshaw on Sex & The City.
