I very rarely, if ever post a press release in its entirety on my blog. However, I know many of you are Mad Men enthusiasts (all I have to do is watch my Twitter-stream on a Sunday night!) and I felt this interview with Mad Men Makeup Department Head, Lana Horochowski, who uses MAC Cosmetics on the set, was a really fantastic read.
Q: Youâ€™re the new department head at Mad Men for Season 3, will you be making any changes to any characters makeup?
Guest review from beauty blogger Gloss Menagerie.
CHANEL. The name just oozes luxury doesnâ€™t it? So when I got the chance to review CHANEL’s Exfoliating Cleansing Foam Purity + Anti-Pollution, I was excited. But that doesnâ€™t compare to how I felt when the beautifully packaged bag arrived, complete with a luxuriously soft CHANEL washclothâ€”how decadent!
The packaging is a squeeze tube that opens on the bottom (also referred to as a malibu tube, Iâ€™ve heard), but the cap just twists on and off with a quick twist, not one of those ones you have to stand there spinning around and around.

Beauty post from beauty blogger Indian Girl:
Growing up, face masks were an everyday thing in my house. My mom is all about using fruits, vegetables, herbs and several other natural / organic ingredients on the face. Having grown up believing natural is the best way; I am always excited about products that incorporate some culture and whole lot of natural ingredients.
The Biotropics Ramuan Spa Relaxing Face Mask is just that. The key ingredient in this mask is Tongkat Ali, a plant indigenous to Malaysian rainforests. It is legendary for its revitalizing and nourishing properties. The mask is essentially a mask with areas cut out for eyes and lips. It comes soaked in a gel . We then pull it out of the individual packet and lay it on our face. Read more
As I sit here on this August afternoon shivering my behind off because it is only 59 degrees (!) I am reminded that in the next few weeks it’ll be time to start wearing fall colors. I was looking at Prescriptives website today and found some great products to give you a jump start on fall makeup. So enjoy and sip some hot chocolate along with me!
