Two Rusk products perfect for stocking stuffers this Christmas!

Can you believe we’re already talking about Christmas? Seriously!? I had to sit down today and make my Christmas list, and go over who I have to buy for – and who gets what. It’s a very daunting task, I tell you. As the family grows – so does the Christmas list. I need to learn to knit or something, so I can knit up hot pads or something for Christmas. Much cheaper.

INTRODUCING Rusk’s Designer Collection™ W8Less™ Spray Gel, Medium Hold Shaping and Control Aerosol Gel!

WHAT IS IT? A lightweight flexible styling gel.

WHO IS IT FOR? All hair types, especially fine hair.

WHAT DOES IT DO? Defines and shapes hair while adding weightless volume, texture and shine. Hair is left pliable, full-bodied and brushes easily.

HOW DO YOU USE IT? Use on wet or dry hair. For a slick look, apply to wet hair and allow to air dry. For a dry look, distribute evenly through hair and blow dry as usual.

W8less™ Spray Gel Medium Hold Shaping and Control Aerosol Gel is a lightweight, non-greasy formula that won’t weigh hair down. It’s ideal for defining and shaping hair, while leaving it full-bodied and pliable. All W8less products contain Thermplex™, a unique combination of ingredients that activates with the heat of a blow dryer to provide shine, control and condition.

I love this product, because it really holds your hair in place, without feeling and looking like you have helmet head! I wear my hair up quite a bit (okay – alotta bit) and I need something that will help my hair stay in place once I tie it back. I like this product because it really holds my hair in place without fly-away’s all day! It’s an awesome product, and would make the PERFECT stocking stuffer!!

And also introducing Rusk’s Designer Collection™ Shining™, Sheen and Movement Myst!

WHAT IS IT? A non-aerosal myst to add sheen and movement.

WHO IS IT FOR? All hair types.

WHAT DOES IT DO? Provides exterior of hair with a high degree of natural-looking sheen. When activated with the heat of a blow-dryer, Shining adds brilliance, builds an invisible shield to protect the hair and increases ease of movement and softness.

HOW DO YOU USE IT? Can be used alone as a styling product – spray evenly throughout length and ends of hair and blow-dry for maximum sheen. Can be used in addition to Str8™ or Thick™ before blow-drying. For added sheen, spray lightly on top of Str8™ or Thick™ and blow-dry as desired. Can be used as a finishing spray – mist lightly and evenly over finished look for maximum sheen and movement.

Shining™ Sheen and Movement Myst provides exterior of hair with a high degree of natural-looking sheen. When activated with the heat of a blow-dryer, Shining™ adds brilliance and builds an invisible shield to protect the hair and increase ease of movement and softness. Each hair fiber becomes sheathed in a micro-thin layer of protective ingredients. Hair is protected from abrasion, sun and wind.

Contains Thermplex™, which is a high performance complex of Panthenol (Pro-vitamin B5) for body and shine, plus Dimethicone PEG-8 Meadowfoamate, a versatile, heat-activated conditioner that penetrates the hair fiber to enhance movement and maximize shine.

I loooooooooove this product. A lot. I have naturally frizzy hair, and it’s the bane of my existence, I swear. Whenever I decide to wear my hair down, I have to deal with frizziness. This product REALLY helps combat that problem. It’s so light it doesn’t weigh your hair down. It smells heavenly, and leaves your hair looking and feeling amazing!

At only $13.00, this makes the perfect stocking stuffer! You can find this product at ULTA, or go here!

PIC: Kim Kardashian spends over $2,000 on her Halloween costume wig!

Kim Kardashian dressed as a mermaid for Halloween, and Kanye went as her captain.

Kim’s wig is drawing attention today, as it’s been revealed she paid more than $2,000 for it!

“Even though the group was lively throughout the evening – posing for pictures, dancing, ordering bottles of Midori – Kanye stole a couple of sweet moments with Kim,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They kissed a few times and he was rubbing her back. At one point, she whispered something in his ear and his face lit up.”

“Kanye kept bragging to his friends about how beautiful Kim looked,” the source adds. “And that he loved her as a blonde!”

“Fun times last night @kanyewest @joycebonelli @carladibello @simonhuck,” Kardashian Tweeted on Sunday.

As the spokeswoman for Midori, Kim hosted the 2nd Annual Midori Green Halloween party in New York City.

I know I’m probably going to get a lot of flack for this, but I just think she is so unattractive. Her boobs are GROSS, she wears too much makeup, she just looks….. plastic. Not a fan.


Jennifer Aniston becomes the face of new hair product line created by MIT Scientists!

Living Proof announced last week it is joining creative forces with Jennifer Aniston as she becomes a co-owner and hair care spokesperson in the ground-breaking company. Living Proof was founded by Dr. Robert Langer, Institute Professor of MIT and by Jon Flint and Amir Nashat of Polaris Venture Partners, a leading venture capital firm that supports the translation of scientific discoveries into meaningful products. Living Proof has distinguished itself by attracting world class scientists and utilizing advanced scientific technologies that originated from MIT to solve women’s toughest beauty problems.

Ms. Aniston will actively help build the Living Proof hair care business using her understanding of what drives our culture and hair trends today. Her role will involve hair care brand development and creative marketing direction for Living Proof’s hair products as well as collaboration with our leading stylists and scientists on new hair care product ideas.

Aniston explains her decision to partner with Living Proof: “What caught my attention about Living Proof is the company’s unique approach to hair care — using scientific technologies to offer women actual proof in a bottle rather than hoping for results. I’ve tried so many hair care products,” says Aniston. “Over the years, my hair has been subjected to everything…blow dryers, flatirons, curling irons, color, extensions, you name it. My hair has taken a serious beating. After using these products, I felt like I finally discovered a solution that works every day. I could not be more excited to share Living Proof with the world.”
