The Devil And Everyone Else ... Wears Prada!

These thumb-sized balms may not look like much but I’m a convert. These PRADA Shielding Balms SPF 15Pradaduo Lip/Tint ($38/10 size .05 tubes @ neimanmarcus.com) are smoothest lippies I have ever tried and they really stay put! I should have known that if a big fashion house was going to get into this category, they would only do it if they could do it right. No wonder all the mags have raved about these. Big recommendation.

Hot Hair Picks

FrizzproductsShort? Long? Frizz creeps up on all of us. The Matrix hair company did some research and found that 87% of consumers use heat tools to style their strands. 87%! So make sure you use protection.

The experts at JOHN FRIEDA are only improving their cult Frizz-Ease by introducing a new addition, Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Formula ($9.99/1.69oz @ drugstore.com). If you regularly use a blow dryer or straightening iron, this one should be in your bathroom, as it does double-duty – controls frizz by putting a barrier between your hair and those hot styling products.
Be one step ahead with new MATRIX Vavoom Gold Heat Blow-In Control Protective Serum ($11.90/4.2oz @ matrix.com). Sprays that protect your hair before styling are like makeup primers, they are really becoming a staple in my daily regime that I never knew I really needed. Made for medium to course hair types, this one not only protects against heat but really made my hair soft and shiny.

Can I Get One To Go, Please?

PhysuseWell we’ve seen the loose mineral eye shadow and pressed mineral eye shadow, but this is a first. Mineral eye shadow with a wand in a portable case! PHYSICIANS FORMULA came up with this cool trick. Not only is there no mess with the sponge applicator wand of these new Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Fluid Powder Eye Shadow ($6.95 @ physiciansformula.com) but the powders are encapsulated in mineral water and they have a cooling effect when applied to the eye. Check out the six colors available and my favorites are Amethyst and Plum Garnet. These are so “mess free” that you can even apply these in the car if you are really rushed, but no driving while applying. I am loving this innovation and the price is right too! ~Lisa

Smooth As Barry White's Voice

Mallygloss3MALLY BEAUTY New Naturals Midnight Lip Gloss ($15 @ qvc.com) is a new kind of gloss to me. It gives you the rich pigment of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss. And the three colors, Clementine, Raisin and Sweet Plum, are all very wearable and will probably suit most skin tones.

Stylin' Locks

Spornette2_3SPORNETTE makes some of my favorite brushes. Their new collection of Coco Tourmaline Nylon and Boar Bristle brushes do double duty. The nylon tourmaline tips on the boar bristles make for excellent styling while it conditions your hair at the same time. The ceramic barrel speeds up the drying time! They named the collection Coco after the pretty chocolate brown barrel. It comes in 3 sizes: 2” diameter #1500/$13.99, 2-1/4” diameter #1505/$14.99 and 3” diameter #1510/ $15.99 @ metrobeauty.com ~Lisa
