The NEW Brow Pen from Anastasia.

The brow guru, Anastasia Soare, known for her work and now brow salons, Anastasia of Beverly Hills, just released the latest addition to her line up. This is the Anastasia Brow Pen, and it is unlike any other you have tried.

This is a fast drying liquid, in a flattering universal shade, that is simple to use. It is actually much easier to use than a brow pencil or powder, in fact. The unique formula bonds to both skin and hair and looks very natural when used to fill in brows.

My brows are in pretty good shape after letting them grow in a bit and shaping them myself, so I don't have shaping to do that I used to with a pencil. The brow pen fluid is perfect to fill in more sparse spots and doesn't look as harsh, at all. The universal color blends perfectly, and I only think this might be a bit dark for someone with faint, thin, or very blonde brows. But for light brown to dark shades, the color is perfect.

Brow Pen is available now at Sephora.com for $21.00. It is a perfect new addition to your Fall makeup bag.

A Natural Volumizing Recipe for Thinning Hair from Kiehl's.

The Ultimate Thickening Shampoo from Kiehl's is just what this girl totally needs.

I hate that my hair is thinning and that when I look at my Mother and how thin her hair has become - I really begin to worry. I am taking a stand to do what I can now. I want it nourished and do what I can to keep it looking as thick and healthy as possible. And thin as it may be, not too thin where I don't want it to be ten+ years from now. Enter this superb shampoo that is taking a permanent place on my shampoo shelf.


The formulation of this new addition to the Kiehl's line of fabulous hair care products, relies upon the benefits of an antioxidant-enriched formula. The formula is infused with a blend of thickening polymers (to help it stick) and an Omega-6 essential fatty acid to help fortify and texturize thinning hair. What I love about it is that my hair looks immediately thicker - without being weighed down. It smells divine, like a light refreshing mint, which I totally need for a pick me up in the morning too.

The only thing missing is the conditioner. I am very weird like that. I usually pair up a shampoo and conditioner that work together, unless I am adding a deep conditioner to the routine. I'll be waiting, Kiehl's.

Inside The Tents at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week.

It is just two short days before the tent at Bryant Park is open. What tent? Well, the tents - a series of them actually, that makeup the main venue for Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week #NYFW. I am excited as I will be in New York, inside the tents, going to events, hanging with Glam and Total Beauty people and some of my other favorite beauty bloggers. I am so excited!

I will not inundate you with only Fashion Week posts all next week, but I will bring you some of what I feel are the stand-out trends in makeup for the Spring and Summer season ('09). To get the latest from everything going in inside and around the tents, you will want to check out Inside The Tents, a  great website that will feature a collaboration of bloggers' posts covering the events of the week.

The first picture here is what everyone sees outside of the tents during NYFW, but the second image is what us lucky bunch get to see inside the tents. It truly is one of the best New York City events, and I feel very privileged to be in attendance, again this season.
