Looking For Super Soft + Shiny Hair? Try This $1 Leave-In-Treatment!

We like going into the Dollar Tree store. We stock up on Bazooka bubble gum, candy like YUMMY unknown gummy bears, etc.

We happened to bump into the shampoo aisle and noticed the Infusium hair care line. What captured our eye was a 16 oz. bottle of Infusium 23 Color Defender Leave-in-Treatment.

At BeautyEncounter.com, the same bottle costs $11.30, BUT....ONLY $1 at Dollar Tree.

If you are looking to SHINE UP dull tresses and make hair super soft and tangle-free, then MASSAGE this watery treatment into wet or dry hair.

We LOVE the watery, thin feeling of this product. We hate OILY leave-in-treatments . And this one works---SHINE, SOFTNESS ...but does it PROTECT color-treated hair from FADING? Not sure.... How exactly would that work?

This is not a VOLUME-builder, but if you are a day between shampoos, this allows your locks to look clean + healthy.
We are NOT certain this product is still in the Infusium line-up at drugstores,  maybe this is just now farmed out to the Dollar Tree chain, but it does create pretty shine, and let's face it.....we all LOVE hair that has that megawatt brightness.

Hey, for a buck, what do you have to lose, ladies?

Cindy Crawford Steps Out In Great Style With Cognac Peep Toe Booties

Maybe it's her supermodel style + beauty, but Cindy Crawford really knows how to wear a pair of peep toe booties....And yeah, the flowing coral dress is SEXY, too.

There's the iconic model at age 49, putting all others to shame, as she steps out for dinner in Malibu.

Gotta LOVE the cognac, peep-toe booties!

Of course, Cindy always looks GLAM + flawless with perfect, wavy hair + makeup.

Peep toe booties are HOT on trend as Cindy shows us here.

You can dress them UP or DOWN, and these shoes look FAB, even with a very feminine, soft flowing dress like Cindy has on. Even though the peep toe bootie is chunky, it works in a number of ways.


You can COPY Cindy's stylish footwear. Peep toe booties are everywhere this summer. We found TONS of them at CiciHot.com.

Look at this pair ($37.99).

Chambray Shirtdress Hot For Summer: Kylie, Anne + Katie Wearing

Everyone LOVES denim + chambray. It's an American classic! And it happens to be a HOT fashion staple for summer in the form of the comfy, stylish shirtdress.

Chambray VS. Denim.....

There is a difference. Just remember that chambray is a lighter fabric cousin of denim, although both chambray + denim seem to be used interchangeably.

Celebs have been looking GLAM in the chambray shirtdress all spring + heading into summer.

Take a look. Here are Kylie Jenner, Anne Hathaway + Katie Holmes:

You can COPY this trend for cheap. We found this one at Target for $22.49 in sizes---xsmall, small, medium, large + xxlarge.

Great look for summer---comfy, easy, breezy.

Yes, There Is Power In Makeup---Why All The Shaming?

We're just happy that someone finally opened their mouth and stood up for women who actually LIKE wearing makeup.....

"Not that there's anything wrong with that."  Ha ha.

There have been lots of makeup shaming photos + posts lately.
We wonder why?

Sure, we believe like every woman that we are MORE than our makeup.

Of course we are. But what is wrong with wearing some mascara, foundation, blush or lip gloss?

Why should women feel shamed when weaing makeup?


There is power in makeup, and thus the growing social media campaign, called the power of makeup.

Take a look here on Instagram.

And watch this amazing vid by NikkieTutorials.

Arm Liposuction Is Real: Then You Can Recyle Fat Into Butt For Sexier Shape

So much pressure on women to be P-E-R-F-E-C-T.

We just saw a quick piece on liposuctioning back arm fat, then taking that flab and recycling into the butt via injections for a Kardashian/Lopez behind.

To see what this looks like Before + After click here on YouTube.

Well, we are ALL for re-cycling, but really now!

Round, BIG butts remain the rage for women around the globe.

And injections or a fat transfer appear to be the most popular way to go, otherwise known as the Brazilian Butt Lift.

Kylie Jenner has come under attack by those accusing the young reality TV star of getting butt injections to look more like her big sister Kim.

Kylie has only recently admitted to some lip filler, NOT booty filler.

We are certainly NOT here to judge on who's getting fat or filler injections, just trying to discuss the body trends going on at the moment.

What do you think? Cool idea to transfer useless fat into amazing butt?

The Perfect Beach Cover-Up: Hey, It Is Summer!

Victoria's Secret ALWAYS features SEXY undies + swimwear, but did you ever wonder about their cover-ups?

We found a gorgeous one with glam rhinestones, semi sheer and in a linen knit.

Plus it's on SALE for $88.

Can you say gorgeous?

This comes in doe skin, as pictured and in white. Either way, it's a lovely summer statement piece.

The v-neck adorned with pretty beading makes this a worthy buy.

Hey, it is SUMMER, finally. Time to shine, ladies!

Strobing Makeup Trend: Getting Your Glow On Fast 'N Easy!

Everyone's been buzzing about STROBING. From Good Morning America to YouTube. It's ALL about the light....the glow. And the upper cheekbone, brow bone + inner eye bone are all you have to worry about  if you want a quick radiance.

Let's face it. Contouring takes a lot of time to shadow the bad stuff and highlight the good. Plus you must BLEND, BLEND, BLEND perfectly.

With STROBING, all you do is HIGHLIGHT. It's fast 'n easy, too. And it's a HOT summer trend.

We like the idea of a pearly kind of glow atop the cheekbones. They just look higher, more defined + pretty.

STROBING adds depth. It can transform a flatter cheek to WOW status. And it looks more natural than the heavier contouring that stars like Jennifer Lopez + Kim Kardashian often wear.

MAC Cosmetics has their own strobe cream ($33) to bring luminosity + a soft dewy-ness to the face.

Check out YouTube's Missy Lynn for her methods of STROBING.
