How Is Hair Breakage Measured?

Submitted by Beauty Brains Blog
Ivy inquires… You know, I’ve been wondering about Pantene Restoratives and its effectiveness. I even went so far as to write to the Pantene P&G company and ask them on what grounds do they issue a guarantee promising 90 % less breakage in one month? I didn’t get an answer.

Allergies Away :: Cooling Eye Relief

Submitted by Organic Beauty View Blog

June has been a swampy, rainy month on the East Coast. I found out the hard way that the rampant mold and mildew, caused by more days of rain than sun, are enough to set me on a sneezy, itchy-eye, allergic rampage. And when I realized that awakening to puffy [...]

CHANEL: Noirs Obscurs Collection

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

Debuting in September is this edgy and daring collection from Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel, that uses dense and dark tones, all dramatically undershot with black. The Noirs Obscurs collection takes black to new extremes - three Rouge Allure lipsticks are incredible; Maniac is black with hints of deep [...]

Good Idea: Model Co Star Smile

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

If it actually works, I really love this double ended pen from Model Co. On one end a hydrating lipstick, on the other, a tooth whitening formula with a paint-on brush applicator.

Summer Perfection: Guerlain Terracotta Eau Sous Le Vent

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

I’ve had this Guerlain fragrance kicking around for several weeks now, but wanted to wait until the weather was really hot to give it a try - somehow it just seemed wrong to be applying it in the rain! In fact, it’s not entirely a fragrance; the wording on the enclosed [...]

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

Revlon Autumn 09: First Look

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger
 

Amazing, bold and stunningly vampish, Revlon’s autumn/winter colours are very impressive. I love both the lipstick, VaVaViolet, and the polish, Plum Night, but we’ll have to wait til September before we can get our hands on it. Power lippies like this don’t come along all that often…..I’ll confidently predict a total [...]
