What Are We Reading This Week?

Want the same earthy, natural effect as Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown but can’t reach quite so deep into your pockets? BECCA Cosmetics is a less pricy brand that’s just as gorgeous — and their Beach Tint cream stain has already gotten me a compliment from my boss. Beach Tint comes in a tiny tube (you don’t need a brush!) and can be blended onto your cheeks like blush/bronzer or swiped across your lips — or both. Keep reading »

UPDATE, 3/3/12 at 6:30p.m: Rush Limbaugh issued an apology on his web site today to Sandra Fluke, a young woman he referred to earlier this week as a “slut” and “prostitute” during a discussion about birth control. In his apology, Limbaugh said:

“For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke. My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.”

Limbaugh’s chief of staff refused to tell The New York Times why the apology was issued. We’re hoping the advertiser pushback had something to do with it.  [Politico, New York Times]

Several advertisers have pulled ads from Rush Limbaugh’s radio show after he called a woman a “slut” and “prostitute” on air Wednesday and suggested that she film her sex acts and put them online. Activists Twitter-bombed Rush’s advertisers, threatening a boycott, and so far two sponsors — mattress stores Sleep Train and Sleep Number — have responded, promising they will cut off the dough.

Something tells me the Queen will not be amused. [The Daily Beast via Cosmopolitan UK]
