I have always *loved* getting my makeup done by the pros and this time, I got to meet with Kohl’s National Beauty Expert, Kathy Snider, who has been in the beauty industry for over 20 years, for a makeover. Since I wanted something soft and wearable for the day, Kathy decided to recreate the look from Flirt! Cosmetics’ latest Green Envy Spring 2009 collection on me.

“Green is a great alternative to brown – a color we have been seeing a little too much nowadays,” says Kathy. “It can also make you look more rested by making the whites of your eyes appear whiter.” Why? ‘Cos “green counteracts redness.” So true!

Here are the winners of the Revlon Fantasy Lengths Fake Eyelashes Giveaway:

* Kimberley from Australia (therealkimmi)
* Lisa (justlisa89)
* Stephanie from Hong Kong (jadoremakeup)
* Covaci Beatrix (lil_lady_beea)
* Taylor (tschaffer1)

Congratulations! I will be in touch with you girls shortly =)

Kenzo’s newest invention, Cleansing Ice Jelly, is definitely not your ordinary cleanser. It contains Ginger plant water and Ginseng extract to clean and tone while stimulating circulation and improving blood flow for younger-looking, glowy skin. But what sets it aside from other cleansers is the texture. It goes on very lightweight, like a white jelly but turns clear with a water-like consistency upon skin contact. It also feels very gentle on the skin and cleanses with no tight/greasy feeling.

One word of advice, if you wear waterproof mascara or heavy makeup, this will not do the job completely. But as a cleanser for the AM in the upcoming hot summer months, this is perfect.

The Cleansing Ice Jelly is available at www.kenzousa.com and all Kenzo counters for $28.
