What’s new PussyCat? Paris Couture 2010

Well it’s that time of year again, folks! Couture week in Paris…This is where we REALLY get to see what fashion is all about. Unlike here in the U.S., the French fashion industry doesn’t have to make clothes that send buyers into a frenzy by the fact that they can sell, as-is, off the runway.

Oh, go on — Be a Tarte!

When I came across a few new TARTE COSMETICS products, I have to say I went a bit gaga. First of all, the purple quilted packaging is sleek yet oh so fashionable, then, there’s the product itself. I tested Provocateur pressed mineral powder SPF 8, Femme Naturale refillable eye shadow palette (which came in a refillable, patent leather and zip palette box that could be fooled as any stylish girl’s pocket book, its just that pretty! Not to mention its filled with a perfect array of eye shadows, that you will really WANT to use and the Four Day Stay lash stain. I really loved the results of all three of these products. Not only were they extremely easy to use, but they were top performers. I used these on many phot shoots, spanning an array of skin types and it performed well in all cases. Long wearing, and vibrant, they really had staying power.

Taming of the Skin

Recently I have been noticing an array of skin rebellion that seems to be camping out on my face these days. Blame it on the changing seasons, lack of sleep or general need to slough off last season, my skin seems to be on the receiving end of all this epidermal craziness. Would there be any better time to try out some of the new fangled skin care solutions? I think not and with so many new products made just for skin rebellion, I have decided to take one for the team and give my fickle skin the test drive of its life.

I want to get close to you

I don’t know about you but my legs, knees and elbows can always do with a seriously deep moisture treatment. It’s like the season’s sneak up on me and, Bam! Suddenly I am into full summer when it seems like yesterday, I was still bundling up with my winter woolies!

Natalie Portman named the Face of Parfums Christian Dior

I have always been a fan of Natalie Portman, since the early days of her career. I was fortunate enough to work with her for several years and watch her grow from a young girl to a sophisticated woman, who was even back then very funny and sensitive and did I mention smart?

Going against your grain or how I got my hair to behave

I have wavy hair that tends to ‘grow wide’ in extreme heat and humidity. One a really bad day, think Bobble head doll— Little body, (I’m only 5’3”) with a huge head ( my hair is very long) and you get the picture! and like most girls with this kind of hair, I often covet sleek, satiny straight hair.

Burton vs. ZUCA : who’s shredding the beauty trail?

Increasingly, I have noticed that there is an influx of hair and makeup artists who are using popular brands of snowboarding bags as their kit bags when on location shoots. I was in the market for a new bag myself, (my trusted Swiss Army bag was literally falling to bits after two years of hard core location/ NYC street travel) but I had no idea where to start.

I want MOR, I really really do!

I am a sucker for pretty packaging. I admit it. But like dating a gorgeous hunk of a guy with not much upstairs, (was I too focused on what was downstairs) the pretty packaging wears off really fast if there’s nothing there to give it substance.
