Nicole Kidman in Marie Claire’s December issue

Nicole Kidman graces the December issue of Marie Claire in a Badgley Mischka platinum evening gown, she gushes to the magazine about marriage, life with the paparazzi and her kids.

Nicole on how her nearsightedness helped her deal with the paparazzi:
“I never wore glasses except when I had to read a teleprompter at an awards show or drive, so I didn’t notice much. I could exist in my head. It was kind of my escape from the world and my protection.”

Nicole on how LASIK surgery changed all that:
“I was walking around legally blind. Now I have 20-20 vision. I can’t believe I spent so many years blurry, but I think that coincides with how I was feeling. Now I notice if people are watching me, but I also smile right back if someone waves, which helps.”

Nicole on her first year of marriage:
“They say the first year of marriage is the hardest. Please, God — he’s the most important person in my life, and he says I am for him, and that’s where we’re at. We won’t go more than 12 days apart, ever. The time he went away to rehab was the longest time.”

Nicole on being 40 years old:
“Yipee! I can’t believe I made it. It feels like a long haul to get here. I’m so fine with it. People want you to have some sort of breakdown, but I’m relieved to be 40 years old, and I’ve lived a life.”

Nicole on her kids, Isabella and Conner:
“Yes, they’re being raised as Scientologists. I don’t want to go there.”

Nicole keeps her face look flawless with a Hollywood AmazingConcealer by AmazingCosmectics. What’s so great about this concealer? It is very concentrated so a tube lasts a long time and it does a fabulous job of covering under eye circles, blemishes, scars and even rosacea! And guess what? It’s waterproof!

Fekkai vs. Ojon: A personal review!

l00345.jpg 

I have never tried any of Ojon’s products before.  When my favorite,  Fekkai Glossing Cream ran out, I decided it’s my job – my DUTY to try something new.  For your sake, of course.  It’s such a burden to have to try all these great new products – just so ya’ll can be in “the know.”

Anyway, while I was at Sephora (again) I noticed that Ojon has a new Glossing Cream available, and decided I should give it a try!  It’s a little more than half the size of Fekkai’s Glossing cream – and slightly more expensive. I bought it anyway.

I have to admit, I really like the way my hair feels. It feels amazingly soft, very shiny (but not greasy!) and it looks great.

One HUGE downer, though – this stuff STINKS!  I can’t stand the smell of it!  I don’t know if I would ever buy it again, because I can’t stand to smell it! I’m going to give it one more try – and if I still feel the same way, I may actually try and return it.  It contains sweet almonds, wheat germ and broccoli seed oils.  (No wonder it smells off!)

Anyway – here is Sephora’s review:

This super lightweight leave-in glossing cream for all hair types provides a daily boost of nourishing moisture that leaves the hair looking and feeling glossier and more lustrous. Because this nourishing formula repairs damage and locks in moisture, it’s a great way to keep hair healthy looking between deep conditioning treatments.

It features a natural algae extract which has a similar molecular structure to silicone, and is also enhanced with sweet almond, wheat germ, and broccoli seed oils, plus vitamin E to help intensify color brilliance and maximize color retention. It protects during the day with a potent UV-inhibiting antioxidant complex that helps protect hair from sun and environmental damage, and also helps to eliminate static and frizz. Formulated with 100 percent pure Ojon oil that is supported by clinical studies to fortify, restore, and nourish damaged, color-treated, or processed hair.

To use: Emulsify a dime-sized portion in the palm of your hands until it disappears; distribute through hair before and after blow-drying to add manageability and shine.
