Oooh La La, Marion Cotillard

Thirty six years old and truly stunning on this cover of French Vogue.

And perhaps they Photoshopped her face a bit, but thank goodness her hands look like normal human hands, not creepy-smooth like a doll’s.


Finally, Sharon Stone and I Have Something In Common

The HAIR, people, the HAIR!

I toss my hair up in a ponytail that looks exactly like that almost every day.  I don’t have bangs either, so I am totally feeling her Witch Hazel-esque wisps.

But both Witch Hazel and I would trade her perky boobs for our droopy ones in a hot second.

Things I Covet: Rita Hazan Foaming Gloss

Thursday, June 21st, 2012
By Glinda

I want this product, but only if it works.  And based on the reviews, it either works fantastically or not at all.

I have always been of the opinion that my hair has lacked in the shine department.

It is probably fine, especially as I rarely blow dry my hair and don’t really do anything to damage it.

But I’ve always turned super green with envy when I see someone’s hair that is just beautifully glossy.  I’ve never worked up the nerve to ask anyone if their hair is naturally that way or if they used a product to achieve the look.

I also know that you can get a glossing treatment at the salon, but I already spend enough money on the color and cut as it is.

I’m keen on the Foaming Gloss because you use it in the shower instead of having product in your hair all day long.

Does anyone use a particularly great treatment?  Do share…

Tuesday Beauty Poll

Bad computer! Bad, bad, computer, breaking down and not allowing mama to post!

But I’m back, and crankier than ever, thanks to four days without a computer.

54% of you think that perfume that smells like a new book is ridiculous, and 45% you think it is wonderful, which isn’t really that big of a spread.  I wouldn’t buy it, but I think it’s an interesting concept.

Today, I want to know how you feel about Amanda Seyfried’s lipstick at the Tony Awards.

Beauty Shout-Out: Emma Stone

I love everything about this look at the MTV Movie Awards.

A natural blonde,  I have often thought that Emma looks better as a redhead.

This proves me wrong.

J’adore the lip color, the bold eyeliner, the soft hair, and the lovely porcelain skin.

The only tiny quibble I have is with her visible roots, but seeing as how it is an “in” thing and everything else is so stunning, I will let it go.

See What I Mean???

Jennifer Lopez, who is normally very beautiful, was apparently shoved into a janitor’s closet and had her makeup applied by a nearsighted ten year old.

Kudos to the young lass for at least not messing up that waterline, (thanks, SarahDances!) hideous as it may be.

Everyone’s favorite trainwreck Lindsay Lohan eked out a win over Kate Upton and Kate Hudson by only one and two percentage points, respectively.  Which really isn’t much to brag about.  I think my least favorite thing about her look was her lips.  Enough with the fillers, ladies!

Now, onto even more celebrity judging…  Now I know the Met Gala is a chance for many to let go of more traditional fashion choices and be a bit more fanciful.  But that doesn’t mean we get to give up our gavels, does it?

Monday Beauty Poll

Well, most of you (44%) found yourselves in a somewhat hesitant approval of Kelly Osborne’s purple hair and lips, with 18% in enthusiastic approval.  I’m in with you guys, for some reason it didn’t look hideous.  The rest of you disagreed, and one kind soul clicked on my joke of wanting some grape juice.  Thank you, person who took pity on me!

Today I’ve got some more celebrity looks for you to judge…

Beyonce the Beautiful

According to People magazine, anyway.

Well really, who could argue?  Beyonce is definitely a stunning woman by almost anyone’s definition.

I love the color composition of this photo, but what is with her hair?  Is that truly the best they could do?  Also, I’m wondering if they could have gone with a bolder lip, although I know they were trying to avoid a clash with the necklace and bracelet.

So what say you?  Do you agree with People’s choice?

55% of you wear sunscreen on your face only on “normal” days, which probably include being at work or picking the kids up from school or whatever.  For most, it isn’t exposing your skin to lots of sun, go good for you for being in the habit.  35% apply none at all, which I think is OK as long as your sun exposure is limited, amirite?  10% of you apply it everywhere, and your skin is probably going to look the best in the next 20 years.

Today I’m curious as to what you think of the latest look sported by rockstar spawn Kelly Osborne.
