Max Factor Review

I recently tried Max Factor's Vivid Impact Lip color. Wow, this stuff is awesome! It really gives MAC a run for it's money. The lip color goes on smoothly with one application and has lasting power! I ended up using the color that the quiz recommended and it was great! It was fun to try a different shade and not my usual coral, brown shades.

I highly recommend this new lipstick!

I took the quiz and this is what I got for a result: Your ideal Vivid Impact Lip Color- Ms. Understood

Wild, moody, unpredictable? None of the above. If anyone understands you most, it's you. Part fashion junkie, part socialite, you love doing your own thing most, like experimenting with signature shades (of the week). Keep this little vibrant little violet-pink number, one of 20 hydrating shades, on call for days when you feel all smiles. Take the quiz by clicking here.

Anne Hathaway is Magnifique!

Anne Hathaway is one of those girls that I just can't hate. She is a beautiful and so down to earth. She is also a great actress, especially in The Devil Wears Prada. She doesn't care about what the media thinks about her figure and she speaks her mind. She is also a Lancôme ambassador.

Check out this new commercial featuring Anne Hathaway and Lancôme's fragrance, Magnifique. This fragrance is spicy, floral, woody, and perfect for summer! The commercial was filmed at one of New York City's hottest nightclubs, The Box and Anne was styled by the famous Rachel Zoe.

Do you want Kate Gosselin's hairstyle?

I went to the local salon yesterday and I was joking with my stylist about Kate's hairstyle. She said that someone actually brought in a picture and wanted her hairstyle. I thought she was joking but she was not! Seriously?

Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Ageless Lifting and Firming Daily Moisturizer

Aveeno Active Naturals Positively Ageless Lifting and Firming Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 Review:

I have been using this lotion for the past two weeks. I really like the pump dispenser. With one pump I get enough lotion to cover my face and neck. The lotion goes on smoothly and under my makeup with no issues.

As for the ageless and lifting factor, I have seen no improvements on my skin. At first, I did break out a little but I am not sure if it was caused by stress or the lotion. With a little Clearasil, it was gone.

As for the SPF30, it did last through a few hours of the hot sun, but probably shouldn't be used as a primary sunscreen for the beach or a day of hiking.

Overall, I probably won't buy this product again unless it is fairly inexpensive and use it as a backup lotion. I paid approximately $19.00 for it at CVS.

What Sunscreens to buy

The Best and Worst Sunscreens
Whether we like it or not, sunscreen is a must for all of us. And according to Heidi Waldorf, M.D. of Waldorf Dermatology & Laser Associates in Nanuet, NY, we need "an SPF of at least a 15 daily." No one wants to spend all summer slathering on sunblock, but with these reader favorites maybe it wont seem like such a chore.
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 6*

The Worst: No. 4: Eminence Sun Defense Minerals, $58
Why: Readers complain that it "is too orange" and "the brush bristles break off and shed..."
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.5*

No. 3: Philosophy A Pigment Of Your Imagination SPF 18, $30
Why: Readers didn't like the "thick and sticky" formula and hue, which "turns my skin yellowish and made me look like I was sick..."
TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 9.2*

The Best: No. 14: Dermalogica Super Sensitive Face Block SPF 30, $40.50
Why: Readers like that it is SPF 30 and that it is "not greasy, doesn't clog pores or cause breakouts."

Running Shoe Style

Summer is right around the corner! The fastest way to lose some weight and get your body ready for the beach is running. Take a look at my cousin Susan, for example. She is rock hard and ready to show off her bikini. For a getting started guide, click here.

I found some pictures of Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake running together with their personal trainer. Jessica looks so cool in her adorable Nike outfit and her IPOD. Check out her shoes:

She is sporting the Asics Nimbus 10 running shoe. They are on sale for $111.47 at Zappos.com http://www.zappos.com/product/7402528/color/179233

Or you can find the Asics Nimbus 11 and be ahead of the game! They just came out and can be found in two colors. The best place to buy shoes is at Roadrunnersport.com and join their VIP club for free shipping and discounts with each order.

2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Review

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper Mascara Review:

I had the pleasure of testing the New 2000 Calorie Extreme in Black Velvet. Let's just say, "This stuff is extreme!" The mascara goes on thick and is very dramatic. It took a few times to get used to the applicator because it is so thick. The mascara did have holding power throughout the day and did not smudge. In fact, I used it on my lower lashes and after a 12 hour work day, it did not smudge all over my eyes. No raccoon eyes here!

I do have to say, 2000 Calorie Extreme is probably not for someone in a hurry and running out the door. It takes time and precision to apply this mascara just right!
