Kim Kardashian Joins Heidi Klum in Her AOL Summer Run

Looks like Kim Kardashian has found a new workout partner in Heidi Klum this week! While filming her spot as a guest judge on Project Runway a couple of days ago, Klum invited the reality star to hit the pavement for her AOL Summer Run in New York City this weekend. Kim’s been exercising extra hard to get ready for her wedding, while Heidi, the insanely hot mom of 4, will be in her workout gear consistently for the next few months as part of her AOL Summer Run.

Klum wrote after her run with Kim: “Just going back to what I said yesterday, it’s always good to work out with a buddy! My friend, Kim Kardashian, ran with me this morning. She was awesome! We took a walking break and she was the one who pushed us to start running again. We did 4 miles!”

Lip Fusion Infatuation Lipgloss

Another great lipgloss find of the week is: Lip Fusion Infatuation Lipgloss in La Lip Jolie a sheer natural baby pink shade. I’ll be honest with you I’ve tried the original Lip Fusion Color Shine and I never got along with it because it tingled too much to a point of a headache and the color payoff was not there, it turned to a clear gloss on my lips. On my recent trip to ULTA however I was happy to discover a different lipgloss collection by Fusion Beauty called: Lip Fusion Infatuation. Needless to say love from first gloss LOL. It tingles but not as much, not too strong. It has a brush application and the color pigment is much bolder. Another plus: it’s long lasting and not greasy. Does it plump? As I mentioned before my lips are naturally full so I can’t never tell. My lips do look smooth and pretty so what’s not to like:)

Buxom Lips Lipgloss

My latest great lipgloss find: Buxom Lips in Debbie a light coral pink shade. It’s not greasy, it’s cooling, long lasting, smooths the lips for and I love it. Buxom is a Bare Escentuals prodigy. In terms of plumping I’ve always been a skeptical to whether plumping lip treatments or lipgloss works or not. Also I have full natural lips already so I never see whether its the lipgloss or maybe I was just born with it LOL. All I know it feels & looks good. Isn’t it what’s it all about?

Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy

Beauty Obsessions: Lip Gloss & Body Shimmer. I’m currently obsessed with Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy a lip tint infused with a honey flavor, natural oils, and collagen-boosting vitamin C. I smelled it in ULTA and I LOVE the honey smell and it also seems to have nice ingredients such as: jojoba, and apricot kernel seed oils that work together to moisturize, replenish and promote cell turnover. This is the same honey scent as Urban Decays’s old classic Sparkling Lickable Body Powder in Honey which I’ve been using for years now.

Urban Decay Lip Love Honey-Infused Lip Therapy smells yummy!

KORRES Lip Butter

Lip Treatment. I’m not an organic freak but every once in a while I do get conscious about all the chemicals I inhale just to get my lips glossy. My latest find for a more natural lip gloss is KORRES lip butters. Formulated without Petro-Chemicals and Sulfates. Favorite shades: Pomegranate (sheer coral) and Quince (sheer rose).


KORRES Lip Butter the more natural alternative to lip gloss

Redken intra force for color treated thinning hair

NEW Redken intra force for color treated thinning hair-hair care collection. I recently went really blonde and that weakened my hair a bit so I’ve decided to try the new intra force shampoo & conditioner by Redken and I really like it. At first I thought it would feel and smell a bit like medicine or strong and won’t feel like a normal shampoo.


Redken intra force for color treated thinning hair shampoo and toner. Redken intra force also includes:1 & 2 Scalp Treatment, 1 & 2 Micro Boost, Hair Advance, and Hair Densifier.

To my surprise Redken intra force shampoos nicely and the toner which is practically a conditioner made my hair soft and manageable. In fact the shampoo has a bit of minty fresh tingly feeling on the hair and scalp and it’s very soothing.
