That's Just Wrong...

I try to keep this blog gossip-free and I wouldn't usually post anything that wasn't nice, but occasionally a star will wear something so horrific I am forced to call them out (as nicely as possible, of course!). Behold...

This is Bond girl Gemma Arteron at the premiere of Quantum of Solace wearing, what I am guessing is a couture American Gladiators costume. What do you think?

Dramatic New Fragrance from Comme des Garcons

There are some days when I simply can't wait for someone to develop technology that will allow us to taste, touch or smell things you find on the Internet. Today is one of those days, thanks to this...
It's the new scent from Comme des Garçons! CDG designer Rei Kawakubo worked with a British milliner to develop the fragrance, which mixes violets with hints of clove, carnation, rose, jasmine, heliotrope, and amber.
I'm mad for the sophisticated all-black bottle and mini hatbox--so dramatic and vintage! Look for this new Comme des Garçons fragrance at all flagship stores.


Say No to Drugs; Say Yes to Benefit Beauty Uppers

I've got a little brother and tons of little nieces, nephews, and cousins, so I'm constantly preaching the importance of eating all your veggies, being a good boy/girl, and, most importantly, saying no to drugs. But the clever minxes at Benefit Cosmetics have created some "uppers" I can actually condone.
Benefit Beauty Uppers ($68) is a collection of three of the brand's best-selling beauty pick-me-ups tucked neatly into a darling (I mean darling) canister that you can reuse. You'll find Dandelion, a powder that brightens and illuminates your face, Benetint, the rose-colored stain that put Benefit on the beauty map, and You Rebel Lite, a tinted moisturizer. It's an adorable gift, but make sure you get one for yourself too!

And while you're at it, order the newest Bad Gal to join the troop - Plum! BadGal Plum Mascara is an electrifying formula to brighten and beautify those pretty peepers. The purple hue will bring out that sexy little sparkle in your eyes.

Don't forget Benefit's gift to you: Free US Standard Shipping on any $50 purchase. Enter promo code PRETTY50 at checkout.
