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 »

You’ll Want To Watch Oxygen’s “House Of Glam”

The success of Bravo’s “The Rachel Zoe Project” has proven that people want a behind-the-scenes look into the fashion industry that goes beyond a bunch of designers competing to show at fashion week. Oxygen has answered this call with “House of Glam,” which features the team at The B. Lynn Group, an image consulting agency that has worked with Rihanna, Tyra, Jamie Foxx, and other celebrities. The team is made up of several high-profile wardrobe stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists and groomers, and even a personal trainer. Think of The B. Lynn Group as a one-stop shop for a celebrity looking to create a cohesive and noticeable image. But unlike “The Rachel Zoe Project,” there doesn’t seem to be one person the group kowtows to or one person who gets all the credit. Each artist is in charge of his/her career, but as with any art, even fashion and beauty, egos certainly get in the way. And that’s where the drama makes “House of Glam” worth watching. Check out another video, in which a stylist and a celebrity publicist butt heads over a catsuit, after the jump. Keep reading »

“Scrub Away The Skank” With Axe Body Wash

Axe body wash’s ad says you can “scrub the skank away” with something called Snake Peel. (Ew.) I would find this only a little less offensive if Dove sold an equal body wash that advertises it’ll “scrub the douche away” … which, you know, wasn’t actually for literal douching.

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.

A Remedy For The Earring Blahs

It’s really easy to get a case of the earring blahs. You love a pair so much that you wear them everyday until they become boring to you. These Rosey Remedies Earrings will take care of your ailment, though. The mixed media — silver, black plastic, rhinestones, and faux pearls — all clustered together give the earrings a one-of-a-kind vintage feel. Yet, you can afford this treatment, even if you’re not insured.

Some Unphotoshopped Madonna Pics For Your Analytical Entertainment

Anytime you hear about un-Photoshopped celeb pics, you assume you’re in for a scandalous treat. We love these gossip items because they make us feel better about ourselves by showing us that famous people aren’t actually flawless demi-gods. Apparently, however, in the case of Madonna, she still looks pretty damn fine without photoshop magic. Here, for your viewing pleasure, some pre-Photoshop pics from her much talked about Dolce & Gabbana campaign. And we must say … we can only hope we look this good at 52 years old. After the jump, some more photos for you to closely inspect with fascination (because we know you will). [StyleFrizz] Keep reading »
