Best in Beauty: 7/29/2012.

I'm officially on vacation. Yipee.  Let me just say that I need it. It doesn't stop me from catching up on all my favorite beauty reads though. Here is the best in beauty of the week.

Braids are hot this year, and Beauty and Fashion Tech shares five summertime braids that I need to try.

Lipstick Powder N Paint tells us how to prevent sun damaged hair.

In Makeup Wars, we shared our favorite summer lip look. Did you see mine?

Product Girl has a look at the beautiful new NARS Vent Glace Eyeshadow Duo.

I'm all about tropical scents in the shower, especially in the summer. The Daily Cookie has me dreaming about this body care duo from Organix.

All About the Pretty has me wanting this Foam Cleanser with Rose Petals.

Gosh, I love Bliss' body creams, and now I want the new Healing Body Balm that The Beauty of Life showed off.
