Olay Body Quench Mousse (Active Hydration) ($7.99) is an amazingly powerful moisturizer. I say this because it doesn’t feel moisturizing to the touch, and you just don’t feel like something as light as a mousse consistency can be would give you all-day moisturization. But alas, it actually does.
It dries nearly instantaneously, which is a huge plus, because I often hate having to wait for a heavy body butter to dry–especially in the morning when it’s “go, go, go!”
It absorbs quickly, and yet it lasts quite awhile – I find my legs are still silky smooth at the end of the day, which is quite a feat considering how inconsistent I am with lotioning my legs up (aka they’re scarily scaley sometimes). I am definitely pleased to have this around for beach-going days, underneath my body sunscreen. It’s also great for when I need something quick and easy so I don’t scare people away with my dragonscales!
Art with Attitude: Kat Von D Leaves Her Mark, Exclusively at Sephora
This summer, beauty gets a bad girl edge when Kat Von D, star of L.A. Ink and owner of High Voltage Tattoo, introduces her one-of-a-kind collection exclusively for Sephora. Whether your look is pin-up perfection or rocker chic, this limited edition line-up has something for those who like to add a little edge to their eyes and punch to their pout.
“People have always asked me what I would be doing if I wasn’t a tattooer, and the only thing I could imagine being as fulfilling as tattooing would be doing makeup!,” says Kat Von D. “To me, makeup is one of the most artistic outlets of self expression, and this collection — a mix of old Hollywood glamour with an L.A. vibe — personifies that. The colors are exceptionally versatile so you can create a look that is classic glamour or amp up the volume for something bolder.”
Eyeshadow Palette ($35) — available in two shade collections, aptly called Ludwig (Kat’s Cat) and Beethoven (Kat’s favorite composer), each palette contains eight eyeshadows, in colors ranging from Lucifer (black) to Tequila (light, golden yellow).
Eyeliners ($16) — six shades of liquid eyeliner, perfect for amping up the star appeal and creating the sexiest cat eyes. Available in Puro Amor (black), Turbo Lover (purple), Immortal Love (brown), Love Metal (gunmetal), Romantico (army green) and Black Metal Love (black with glitter).
Eye Brush Set ($48) — a set of five eyeshadow brushes to bring out your inner artist and achieve a flawless finish.
Lipsticks ($18) — four incarnations of red to accentuate the perfect pout — are you feeling mischievous? Underage Red (blue red), Lolita (rose), Misfit (raisin) or Hellbent (burgundy).
The collection will be available from May 12, 2008 in all Sephora stores, as well as by calling 1-877-SEPHORA or logging on to www.Sephora.com.

How does makeup affect your confidence? Does it raise it, give you all of your confidence? Does it lower it?
More Naughty Nauticals! I am LOVING the lips for this look, hands down, totally loving them.
I used Bell Bottom Blue pigment (LE) all over lid, Phloof! eyeshadow on inner lid, Illegal Cargo eyeshadow (LE) on middle of lid, Parfait Amour eyeshadow on middle of lid, Freshwater eyeshadow on outer lid, Pandamonium eyeshadow (LE) on outer crease, Phloof! eyeshadow on brow, Hush eyeshadow above crease, Phloof! eyeshadow on inner lower lash line, Parfait Amour eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, Graphblack technakohl on lower lash line, Royal Wink fluidline on upper lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush (LE) with Guerlain Pressed Meteorite in Mythic on cheeks. I had Fun Fun lipstick (LE) with Ms. Fizz dazzleglass (LE) on my lips.
** These are recommendations for dupes based on permanent colors available â€” may not necessarily be identical; they are the closest I can think of!
Bell Bottom Blue = Naval; Illegal Cargo = (can’t think of a permanent dupe); Pandamonium = Knight Divine; Don’t Be Shy = Well Dressed; Fun Fun = Pervette; Ms. Fizz = Flashmode (maybe)

California ease, hipster cool, and true luxury intersect at Los Angeles’ hottest shopping spot, Robertson Boulevard. May 2008 brings a brand new reason to hit the block: the opening of the sparkling new Robertson Boulevard CHANEL boutique. To celebrate the occasion, Peter Philips, the new Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has designed four limited-edition must-have nail colours, which will be exclusively available in-store.
This mini-collection of graphic, pop-art shades was inspired by the spirit of Robertson Boulevard itself, a young Hollywood hangout now famous for shopping sprees and see-and-be-seen lunch spots such as The Ivy. Just as Robertson offers a signature blend of trendiness and haute exclusivity, these nail colours are fresh, eclectic, fun — bright as a cloudless California day, and perfect for a destination where every shopper feels like a star.
MELROSE A fun, hot pink destined to become spring’s must-have pedicure
RODEO DRIVE A purple splash: girl power meets the power lunch
L.A. SUNRISE A primary yellow as bright and cheerful as its name
L.A. SUNSET A warm tangerine — just the thing for an afternoon shopping splurge
Available exclusively in-store at the Robertson Boulevard CHANEL Boutique beginning May 30th, 2008, on www.CHANEL.com in July 2008, or call 1.800.550.0005. Each lacquer is $25.00.
