Top 5 Celebrity Beauty Buys:101
1. Mason Pearson Brushes
Mason Pearson brushes are the "it" brushes that all celebrities just have to have! For one, they actually clean the hair by stimulating the scalp and thereby increasing the blood flow to your roots. It also spreads the sebum (a natural conditioning oil that all hair has) from your roots to the length of your hair, making it feel soft, looking shiny, and giving it strength. Here's a (sort of) chart to know the prices:
Natural pure boar bristle in Pocket Size: $77
" " in Handy Size: $146
" " in Medium Size: $185
" " in Large Size: $220
Natural pure boar bristle/Nylon in Pocket Size: $68
" " in Handy Size: $93
" " in Medium Size: $108
" " in Large Size: $130
All Nylon in Pocket Size: $36

They also have combs and detanglers, too, for those who want to go all out. Talking about going all out, while you're at it, why not give NYC Peach a call? This special service encrusts your Mason Pearson (and a huge selection of other things- encrusting Sidekicks are also very popular with celebrities) with certified Swavroski crystals in different designs and colors. LOVE it!!!
2. Smith's Rosebud Salve
Haven't you noticed that everytime you read an article about a celebrities favorite beauty finds, or have a peek into their bag, there is always something about Smith's Rosebud Salve? I have, and that's why it's here (d'oh). The Rosebud Perfume Company was actually founded in 1892, and set out to make a multi-purpose product that was both affodable and effective. This cult-favorite, multi-purpose lip balm soothes dry or chapped lips, calms and heals irritation, helps deissapear blemishes and soothes the sting of minor burns. Try dabbing on dry elbows or knees to condition, and relieve dryness. Also an excellent remedy for the treatment of diaper rash. Not that you would have diaper rash. I hope. Anyway, it does so many things (and is effective in all of them [ I have it so trust me!]) that no wonder it's a celebrity fave! It costs an inexpensive $6.
2. CHANEL Waiting List Nail Colors: Vamp and Black Satin
In 1994, CHANEL set off catfights at the beauty counters with its launch of Vamp, a perfect nail color that looked all business at work, but could be oh so sexy anywhere else. Vamp is still mostly out of stock in stores, even after 12 years!!! I guess CHANEL decided to do it again, because Black Satin is doing the same thing to people. But it's worse this time: it's limited edition, so it will end, causing even more catfights with women trying to buy every Black Satin they see in sight so they could (hopefully) have for the rest of their lives. Black Satin is so desired throughout Hollywood and everyone else that their is a WAITING LIST! Even though both are originally $18, Vamp is the only one you can get at that price at the CHANEL website. Black Satin on the other hand, isn't really found in stores anymore, so you should best check on Ebay or write yourself down in the list!
4. DUWOP Lip Venom
Ever wonder how celebs like Paris and Lindsay always have these plumped pouts, when you just know they weren't born that way? It's all due to Duwop's Lip Venom, supposedly the best results you can get without stepping foot in to the "doctor" *cough, cough*. Ultra-shiny with an exciting, spicy bite, this tingly gloss works like a bicycle pump for your pout. A secret blend of essential oils, including cinnamon and ginger, boosts circulation to your lips making them look bee-stung. As I put in my last post, this is very, very "tingly" (painful) but it sure does do exactly as it says ( I've used it).
T3 Blow Dryer
The last but certainly NOT the least, is the T3 Tourmaline Professional Ionic Hair Dryer ($200, left) and the T3 Evolution ($300, right) that every celebrity has, or of course, has they're hair stylist (*cough, Kevin Paves, cough*) equipped with one wherever they go! Infused with 100 percent tourmaline jewels (the world's most potent ionic mineral), You plug it in, and rather than blasting your strands with damaging heat for the better part of the next hour, you're done in half the time and your hair is hydrated, full of shine, and all the more healthier. T3 products deliver the fastest, healthiest heat-styling humanly possible. Compared with conventional dryers, which rely on scorching heat and blasting air, all tourmaline-infused T3 products are based on breakthrough ionic science. Negative ions speed up the evaporation process, as well as infrared heat, to help dry the hair in half the time. In addition, it prevents static, frizz, and color fading. In fact, thanks to this high-tech technology, T3 tools are so gentle, you can use them everyday and damage won’t be an issue. And, if all of that weren't enough, they both dry up to 70% faster than an average blow dryer!
