Get Dirty with Jonathan!

Jonathan who, you ask? Well, I am speaking of none other than famed hair stylist Jonathan Antin - sexy thing that he is!

He has a great new kit for the gals who like their hair to look like second day hair on the first day. This would probably be me! My hair is very fine and thin and I really need to wash it everyday, or it becomes limp, lifeless and too weighed down. I do notice, though, that more times than not, my hair looks pretty darn good on the second day after washing - if I could only get it to stay that way throughout the day.

The Get Dirty kit includes not only the best-selling Dirt Texturizing Paste that the whole kit was based upon, but it also contains the new Spray Dirt Texture Hold Hairspray and the new Detox Dirt Clarifying Shampoo. (Where is the conditioner?)

At $30, this kit looks to be a winner. Let me know if you have tried it yet, as I can't wait to give it a try once I get my Sephora order together. Also, let me know how you prefer your hair - on the day of washing or the day after?

Dior Diorshow Black Out Mascara.

Why hasn't anyone told me how good this mascara is?

When it comes to Diorshow, the reviews seem to be mixed. You either love it or hate it. Never having tried it before, (I know, where have I been?) I have nothing to compare this one to. But let me just say - this is my new mascara find. I love, love, love it!


In an ulta-rich blacker than black color and all the length you need, there are no clumps, dryness, sticking together - nor spider lashes. The volume is enough to plump them just enough while taking lashes to great lengths. Love it!

Everything that I read is that Black Out Mascara is a limited edition, which I am certainly hoping is not true, or I will be spending a pretty penny to stock up now. Each tube carries a hefty price tag of $24 - but I will definitely get my three months worth out of it.

Suite Array - Eyeshadow and Eye Liner Galore from MAC.

Another newbie from MAC. They sure love to launch collections together, don't they? Well, there is Cremesheen for the lips, so of course there needs to be one for the eyes. This is Suite Array. A suite of gorgeous Eye Shadow Duos and Pearlglide Eye Liners.

"Reserve the Luxury Suite. New Eye Shadow Suite with Pearlglide Eye Liners provide all the accoutrements: luminescence, iridescence, phosphorescence, good design."

I am so excited to see eyeshadow duos from MAC. I love their quads, but my makeup drawer runneth over from plenty of MAC shadow pots. I can't wait to get these in there too, and this will make it easier when needed to throw some into my purse. They are beautifully coordinated.
