Dior Beauty Introduces Dior Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Tinsley Pink

Dior Ultra-Gloss Reflect in Tinsley Pink is the brand’s first-ever product named for (and created by) a brand ambassador. Dior Beauty Ambassador and prominent New York socialite Tinsley Mortimer chose a feminine shade of sheer bubblegum pink. I think it looks like the quintessential spring pink gloss. Best of all? A portion of proceeds from the sale of Tinsley Pink will go to one of Tinsley’s favorite charities, Operation Smile.

$24 and limited edition. Get on that shiz.

LOST Analysis: Michael Rowed the Boat Ashore

What a finale! I can’t WAIT for the show to resume on April 24, despite how much I loathe the 10pm time slot. I’m pressed for time this week, so I may expand later. But for the meantime, I’ve discussed a few bullet points:

*The Shining is referenced, and not for no reason. The movie is also the story about a man with a son who has telepathic abilities. Much like those of Walt.

*Mama Cass Elliot: The song playing in the car when Michael tries to kill himself is “It’s Getting Better” by Mama Cass Elliot, who also recorded “Make Your Own Kind of Music,” the song played by Desmond while he’s in the hatch.

Show ‘em Your O Face

Get your mind out of the gutter, dolls. O, as in the O on the periodic table. The chemical symbol for oxygen.

I’m wildly impressed by every single philosophy product I’ve tried. Creator/founder Cristina Carlino was most concerned with helping women achieve fantastic skin that looks good enough to go makeup-free. Her products aren’t even ADVERTISED (kind of like another successful company: Krispy Kreme) but absolutely fly off the shelves at Sephora. The skincare products contain the highest concentration of retinol and Vitamin C you can buy over the counter. But what most impresses me about Cristina is the fact that she comes up with the poems and mini inspirational language that graces the product line’s bottles and boxes. I lurve a girl who uses both sides of her brain.

So Blanche Devereaux: Estee Lauder Golden Alligator Compact

Tuesday night was kind of epic, friends.

It started with a Molton Brown event (it was PHENOM – I’ll be reporting back on my finds from that within the next week or so) followed by the Dove dinner and then a party at Justin Timberlake’s restaurant, Southern Hospitality, for the launch of mag Southern Beauty. The Southern Beauty gift bag included an Estee Lauder Golden Alligator Compact ($32). Upon sorting through the bag with me, Dina, hilariously confessed that she is an old lady and ADORES a metal compact.

If you agree that “Miuccia Prada is one of the best living artists working in any medium,” (and I most certainly do), you’ll adore Cintra’s latest Critical Shopping experience.

In other news, I’m so sad/elated about the final LOST ep tonight for 5 weeks! Someone dies (I think it’s Jin) and we find out about what Michael’s been up to for the last TWO YEARS. Isn’t it sad once LOST isn’t on regularly – which seems to be the case 75% of the time? When it exits my lifestyle once again, it’s like having to say goodbye to an out-of-town lover. Sigh.

The Hills Are Alive With The Sound… of Dove’s New Micro-Series

I attended a Dove event last night with Dina and Marina where I was informed that they have partnered with MTV to create a micro-series starring Alicia Keys. Is that not marketing GENIUS? I can’t get enough of The Hills. The micro-series is called “Fresh Takes” and each three-minute episode will be shown during The Hills‘ commercial breaks starting on March 24. Mark your calendars, dolls.

The micro-series focuses on the ups and downs of three urban twenty-somethings. I had the opportunity to try out a bunch of goodies from the go fresh line and I’m already enamored with the Dove go fresh Body Wash in Cool Moisture Cucumber & Green Tea ($9) and their Dove Go Fresh, Anti-perspirant & Deodorant, Ultimate Clear, Energizing Grapfruit & Lemongrass ($5).

Kate Bosworth Rocks Dior Makeup at the 21 Premiere

Have I mentioned how much I cannot WAIT for the movie 21 to come out on the 28th? I adore movies about schools in Boston and am totally intrigued by math geniuses (fun fact: in Latin, the plural of genius is genii). I’d like to do an anthropological study of them. I find them exotic, as I am a person for whom math is intolerable. So when I got the scoop from Dior about Kate Bosworth’s makeup for the Vegas premiere of the movie, I was naturally, right on top of that, Rose.

Dior Makeup Artist Pati Dubroff created fresh, rosy cheeks and lips and
for the eyes she used soft greys with a pop of gold to play off the
silver and gold in Kate’s dress.
