NARS-Orgasm-Blush.jpgIt’s the perfect shade of peachy pink. It’s got a touch of shimmer to make you glow. It’s been a cult favorite for years. Oh, and it’s got a super controversial name. We could only be talking about NARS Orgasm Blush.

We know that the phrase “a color that works for everyone” is usually not true. But, in the case of this gorgeous blush, it really does! It adds such a pretty hint of color to everyone’s cheeks and just makes them look like they have an inner glow.

And, really, why wouldn’t you want to carry around a blush with a name that makes you … well … blush?

I already shared my strong like of the John Frieda Full Repair Shampoo and Conditioner (missed it? read it, here!). So it was really only natural that I try the other products in the line. The John Frieda Full Repair Perfect Ends Sheer Mist is truly amazing. Immediately after I towel-dry my hair, I gather it all together and spritz a couple of sprays of Perfect Ends on the front and then a couple on the back and I comb it through. You only need a little bit and you only apply it to the ends. It helps your ends lock in moisture so that as you blow-dry your hair they don’t dry out and show signs of damage. It also doesn’t weigh my baby fine locks down one bit.

Isla-Fisher-Side-Braid.jpgStarlet Isla Fisher showed up to the premiere of husband Sacha Baron Cohen’s The Dictator last week with such a lovely, beautiful side braid. We’re loving the fullness of her hair, the deep side part and the ease with which the braid was created. It’s not too “done,” which is the perfect girly alternative to a ponytail on a hot day. Well played, Isla, well played.
L'Occitane-Sweet-Almond-Liquid-Soap.jpgWant skin that smells amazing and feels amazing, too? L’Occitane Sweet Almond Liquid Soap is in your immediate future.

This soap is formulated with shea butter and aloe vera extract to nourish, condition and moisturize the skin until it’s softer and smoother than you could even imagine possible. And, since it’s soap, which is normally pretty drying, this is pretty good news!

But the good news doesn’t stop there. This soap smells absolutely incredible, thanks to almond tree oil. It’s sweet but not cloying, and you’ll almost feel like you don’t need perfume after using it. Hey, we said almost.

Brooklyn Decker took the red carpet this week in support of her new movie, ‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting.’ What we weren’t expecting was her full fringe bangs, and yet they looked great. The bangs paired with her long locks’ beachy waves, created the quintessential California girl look. The great thing about bangs like this is they can typically be worn to the side, Brooklyn’s usual style choice, but for other occasions can be worn down to change your entire look.
