Hair Trend: Give The Side Braid A Try

Got lots of hair? Try this trend for fall 2010 — the side braid. We love that it’s chic and relaxed at the same time. Also, it is incredibly simple. Put a side part in your hair and then loosely braid your hair in the opposite direction of the part, starting around your ear. Drape over your shoulder and you’re good to go! Lookin’ lovely.

Beauty Test Drive: Calvin Klein Beauty Fragrance

It’s not every day I come across a fragrance that can be worn year round, but Calvin Klein Beauty is appropriate for summer, fall, and whenever feels right. With notes of jasmine and neo-lily (a new interpretation of a lily), Beauty has a floral essence we’ve all come to identify with summer. But the top notes of ambrette seeds give the fragrance a spicy warmth that’s comforting this chilly time of year. Cedarwood adds a rugged familiarity. The heavenly scent lingers in the air and isn’t immediately identifiable. (Don’t you just hate when you recognize your favorite perfume on a stranger, and she smells as if she doused herself in it?) The end result is a fragrance that’s both feminine and sophisticated. [$65 for 1.7 oz., Macy’s] Keep reading »

Nars Re-Releases Vintage Nail Polishes Named For Blockbuster Films

I feel as if I’m always on a quest for my next favorite nail polish. As someone who treats myself to a weekly manicure, seven days can seem like an eternity and I can get bored really fast. That’s why I let out a squeal when I first saw Nars’ “Zulu,” one of five vintage polishes from the Nars archives named after blockbuster films. Zulu is the true green I’ve been looking for and makes me long for corduroy and flannel plaid. If green isn’t your idea of an amazing nail color, the limited-edition collection also includes a gold called “Mash,” a silver named “Full Metal Jacket,” a bronze-y-orange called “King Kong,” and a royal blue dubbed “Midnight Express.” And $16 is an amazing price for something beautiful and vintage.

MAC’s Disney-Themed Collection Looks Kind Of Like The Kid Stuff To Us

When it comes to cosmetics, how important is the packaging to you? Are you likely to buy something just because it has something distinctive on it? Like, for example, MAC‘s new Disney-themed makeup collection, which features cartoon character designs of some of the empire’s villains like Cruella De Ville, the Evil Queen from Snow White, and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. This is just our opinion, but to us, these products feel a bit like your normal MAC purchases simply re-packaged with new graphics. And we also kind of feel like from afar, pulling out an Evil Queen lip gloss from your purse might look like you’re lacquering up with the souvenir you got from your last Disneyland trip (or the souvenir you stole from your 11-year-old cousin’s makeup box). After all, regular Disney kid makeup (bottom lip gloss images) seem fairly similar, at least in the straightforward packaging and aesthetic. No? [Refinery 29, PartyCity] Keep reading »
