On Thursday, June 30th singer-songwriter, Katy Perry, teamed with Gigantic Parfums to launch Purr by Katy Perry in Toronto, Canada. As much as Katy loves purr-ple she changed up her look and debuted her new red hair! Katy arrived at Sears Toronto Eaton Centre for press interviews where invited media lined up on the purple carpet to learn about Katy’s inspiration and her involvement with the fragrance. Following her interviews, the music sensation greeted her fans, signed autographs, and introduced Purr by Katy Perry to Canada.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to finally introduce me… in a bottle. There is a wonderful world of fragrances out there, but like with my music, I believe there is room for me and my own unique twist on it. Purr is a natural extension of who I am as a woman – it’s a gorgeous blend of all my favorite scents that embodies my style, my tastes and my love for all things incredibly cute. It is an absolutely purrfect perfume that I hope leaves you meowing with delight!” – Katy Perry

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?
