I had the pleasure of trying a couple items from the ybf line. FIRST – the Perfectly Polished Lipgloss Trio. I looooooooooove the fact that this comes in a pack of three! For the price of what you would normally pay for 1 lipstick – you’re going to get 3 instead!

Lips say it all and a natural nude lip is lovely for that “girl next door” look but now it’s time to reach out and grab a hold of a little chic sheen and glamorized gleam! These luxurious lip glosses are never sticky, since they are ultra-silky with their “lacking in tacky” texture. Your Best Friend hopes you have fun with these easy-to-use, glide on glosses that lend your lips some serious softness mixed with the perfect amount of gorgeous color!

  • Enjoy these perfect glosses that bring not only extraordinary color to your makeup palette, but exceptional flavor to your taste buds! This trio contains Vitamin E with a delicate citrus essence that will dazzle your lips & awaken your senses!
  • Enjoy the creamy shades of beach berry and romantic raspberry that will drench lips in sensational color, then add a hint of glimmer to your perfect pout with iced wineberry.
  • Have fun blending them together to make your own special shade or you can wear each one alone for three different looks!
  • Your gloss trio is also great for highlighting your favorite lipsticks that you already have in your makeup bag! You will love how perfectly polished these shades will leave you as they add a radiant sparkle to your supreme smile!
  • You¿ll receive your own Your Best Friend Beauty Booklet and specific product application card that provides you with the tips, tricks and trade secrets for easy-to-follow, mistake-proof techniques that every girlfriend needs to achieve maximum results with minimal effort!!

Aquage and Susan G. Komen team up in the fight against breast cancer!

As a long-standing advocate and fund-raiser for Susan G. Komen For The Cure Aquage is committed to serve in the fight against breast cancer. And although the brand’s signature color is all things blue, the passionate Aquage family definitely sees the world “through pink colored glasses.”

May, a month synonymous with wide-spread breast cancer awareness will mark the 5th year that Aquage will be supporting Komen for the Cure. The brand, and its many salon partners, will go pink, showcasing an exclusive collection of “pink” hair care with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the cause. To-date, the brand has raised over $489,000.00 for the cause and is anticipating continued success in 2012.

“As a life-long hairdresser and educator, I have met countless women who have been touched by breast cancer. The emotional connection between women feeling beautiful and hair is strong, and that’s why we are committed to finding a cure by working once again with Komen for the Cure,” remarks Aquage Co-Founder, Luis Alvarez. “Our hairdressing community is selfless in their dedication and drive in the fight against breast cancer, and by touching lives daily, we can all make a tremendous impact in raising awareness and funds against this disease.”

According to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, in the United Stated in 2012, a woman will die from breast cancer, on average, every 13 minutes and will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer every 2.3 minutes. Through funds raised for Komen for the Cure, great strides are made in research, treatment and medical discoveries in the effort to further diminish these staggering statistics.

The exclusive Aquage Pink Collection Line-up Includes:

FINISHNG HAIRSPRAY – An Aquage top seller, this fine mist, humidity resistant spray provides maximum hold and shine for long lasting style without stiffness or untouchable residue. At 2 oz., it’s the perfect touch-up item to stash in a summer beach bag. $6.00 SRP

BEYOND SHINE – Using this styling staple, seal in hold and glossy polish by sprizting onto hair before thermal styling. Beyond Shine imparts brilliant shine and protects hair from thermal damage by creating a humidity resistant barrier that controls style in all weather conditions. $19.00 SRP

SHINE & HOLD SET – A collection of Aquage styling products, this go-to kit combines everything needed for spectacular brilliance and efficient staying power. $20.00 SRP

Watch the makeup tutorial that has attracted 1.5 million views – how to apply makeup when you’re drunk!

This might be the highlight of my day. I’m not going to lie, I might have watched it twice.

Have you ever been put in the situation where you need to apply makeup while drunk? (Me either) Well anyway, it makes for an absolutely HILARIOUS video, one that’s already been viewed by more than 1.5 million people!

Jenna Mourey, an American YouTube personality who is known as Jenna Marbles, has uploaded a hilarious video of herself applying make-up and offering step-by-step advice while claiming to be drunk. It has received 1.5 million hits.

The 25-year-old from Santa Monica is shown attempting to apply false eyelashes, liquid eyeliner, lip liner and other cosmetics to her face in what is likely to be a video that pokes fun at the unpolished make-up often seen on inebriated women.

The video, which was uploaded on Wednesday and is littered with profanity, shows the Boston University graduate present a plastic cup filled with an unspecified liquid to the camera before getting to work on touching-up her face.

She is seen slurring at the camera: ‘Nobody really talks about how hard it is, if you go, like, day-drinking and then everyone’s like “yeah alright, rally in a few hours and then let’s go out”… how f***ing impossible it is to put make-up on and get ready when you’re drunk.’

T.G.I.F.!!

My absolute favorite line: “If you can’t move your brush, just move your face!”

What if Branches could Beatbox?

Burt’s Bees knows what nature has in store for the best skin & hair on Earth. And when it comes to the Earth, they have infinite respect and gratitude for all that she has to offer. It’s the reason they compost, plant gardens, turn out the lights, and help save bees.

Every ingredient, every product launch, every tube, bottle and cap is a conversation about how to do the right thing. It’s their business model and they call it The Greater Good. As you can imagine, Earth Day is kind of their high holiday.

So, this Earth Day, Burt’s Bees collaborated with composer/genius Diego Stocco, creator of “Bassoforte”, to create a one-of-a-kind, all-natural musical experience. All the sounds in this piece were created real-time using instruments provided by Mother Nature herself. The same ingredients that are instrumental in making the Burt’s Bees products you love—Honey, rice, almonds, flowers, and more. It’s a reminder to take a few minutes on Earth Day or any other day to pause, reflect, and maybe even shake some branches or tail feathers. You know, celebrate this amazing planet we share.
