Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...and those of us holding the mascara wand.

After two decades of covering the beauty industry, I've come to learn what makes it so alluring. Finding the perfect shade of makeup to match your skin tone, adding a swipe of eyeliner to give your tired eyes a lift, discovering an innovative new product line, or indulging in a totally luxurious spa treatment. My experiences have been documented in magazines, newspapers and websites worldwide. I've tested newly formulated products in the lab, explored hair removal options, shopped for lipstick, added shine to my hair and succumbed to massage marathons--all in the name of beauty. I've written press releases, hosted makeover events and co-authored a Do-It-Yourself Beauty book (Alloy). On this blog, I write about products and services that I come across every day as well as those that have been provided by publicists or the companies that make them. Either way, I write what I think. I hope to share some of my insights--and bring you the latest, greatest beauty news right here. Join me in the quest to find all things pretty.

brush with greatness

There is no such thing as frizz free--especially in summer. There's "more controlled frizz" or "limited frizz" but frizz free? C'mon. I wasn't born yesterday. Goody's new brushes come close, though, to offering reduced frizz for your hair. I have been determined to find a great new brush every since my last one flew off the handle during use a couple of months ago! (It was wood.) Now I love my Dual Bristle Oval Round brush from the Goody Pro Achieve Collection ($2.50-$7.50). The unique oval shape provides maximum lift while ball-tipped nylon bristles on one side of the brush give you height and control and natural boar bristles on the other side deliver control and beautiful shine. After the first time I used it, three people asked if I had gotten my hair done. And if that's not reason enough to make the purchase, I don't know what is.
