Speaking of hair — and color — I need YOUR help!
I’m desperately itching for a hue change. I was gold last year at this time and am currently a brunette.
Should I stay brown or switch it up back to gold?

last year
this year
And here is a picture of a woman on the street who had the exact hair color I think I want. She had it done in Brazil. It’s that dark roots, light tips baliage look…
So, what’ll it be? Vote below or leave a comment in the comment section. Merci!

Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2009…

By | Uncategorized | 4 Comments

Yes, it’s true… Bar Rafaeli (Leonardo’s main squeeze) is Sports Illustrated 2009 Swimsuit Cover Girl.

This is a BIG deal! And she’s a pretty girl, but cover girl material? I don’t know… the pic seems a little blah… not very exotic.

Is this nepotism?

The former Mrs. Beckham (we kid, we kid – although we do have a massive crush on Mr. Becks), Victoria (a.k.a. Posh Spice), chops her mop!

She debuted the new do at the Marc Jacobs Mercedes Benz Fall Fashion Show in NYC on Monday night.

We’re thinking this look is rather androgynous – David Bowie circa Ziggy Stardust

How are YOU feeling about the new cut?

Max Factor’s New Face Is…

Supermodel and trophy girlfriend to hotness Tom Brady, Giselle Bundchen!!!

The ColorGenius Face Collection campaign will start running in 2009 but the pic above is a sneak peek at the ad! **source** Giselle replaces Carmen Electra after her 3 year deal with cosmetic company.

Is Giselle a better choice? We think, yessssss! She’s the sexxxiest (with the sickest bod and cutest boyf!).

You decide~~~

We think that Giselle looks absolutely gorge in this ad… angelic… like an angel – oh wait! She is an angel – a Victoria’s Secret angel!

We’ve never really been a fan of the Max Factor color line but we are a HUGE fan of Giselle… so, maybe it’s time to reconsider the products??? Hmmm…

Have a favorite Max Factor product? Let us know! We want to try it!

Hair-crazed Jenny isn’t only hair-obsessed, she’s also a (non-practicing) psychic. And her ability to see the future is guiding her to a new trend, a very bold and blue trend!

Jenny swears that this blue polish (pictured below) by Sephora (Myrhile) is going to be the next must-have hue for YOUR claws…

What do YOU think…

Gossip Girl Blake Lively at the premiere for her film, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 in NYC at the Ziegfeld Theater last night…

She looks FIERCE!

Great summer makeup (I’d say she’s using Tarte’s cheek stain Tipsy on those cheeky apples) – love the dramatic eyes with the glossy, frosty pink lips! Her skin has that sexy bronze glow (hope it’s a self-tanner and not from the deadly sun!).

And the hair! Wow, it’s gorgeous with full-bodied curls and the spring/ summer trendbraids!!! Although, these braids are randomly placed along the crown of her head and they sort of blend into the hair in an effortless, natural way (I actually used to do this to my hair back in the day…). Hmmmm…. new trend alert?!

Penn Badgley does Blake well….

I cannot WAIT for THIS….

Lancome’s newest installment to their world-renowned mascara collection is:


Here’s what they have to say about the news:

“We just learned of some exciting mascara news from our team in Paris… This fall, we will be launching Ôscillation, a unique mascara that provides a 360-degree coat around each and every lash. The vibrating brush provides no fewer than 7,000 vibrations per minute for the perfect formula application. Ôscillation has four patents for technology and formula and was created by a team led by Jean-Louis Guéret, the designer of all Lancôme mascara brushes. The King of Mascara, Guéret has been the father of nearly 400 mascaras during his illustrious career.”

We DEF will be pre-ordering Oscillation (although we’re not too keen on the name… it’s a strange one to pronounce!)!

If you’re a woman (or a gay man) living in America, you’re probably counting down the days until the highly anticipated Sex and the City Movie (14 days to go!) premieres….

And if you’re like me, one of the main reason you’re so stoaked to see the movie is because you just can’t wait to have a look at all the fabulous fashion and beauty trends!

So, as a little fashion and beauty preview, Beauty Banter wants to know… who do YOU think gave best face at the London premiere of Sex and the City: The Movie!

Sarah Jessica Parker (what the f*^# is that thing on her head?!? A flower pot?!)

Cynthia Nixon (love the side boob action… who knew lesbians had such sexy style?!)

Kim Cattrall (ehhh… the hair do makes her look 50… which she probably is, but still, don’t you always wanna look younger?!)

Kristen Davis (very Charlotte-esque – simple, a wee boring, and very safe).

We vote for Cynthia Nixon! How about you?
