Friday roundup - March 21, 2008

OK, I'm a day late, but here's what I found interesting among our Friends this past week.

The Beauty Brains answer the question Makeup Removers: Does Oil Cleansing Really Work? (the answer is yes). Shop With A Vengeance uses almond oil as moisturizer.

After renovating her bathroom, Ondo Lady decided that she needed bath products for the new bathroom. She confesses, I'm a Lushite. Indeed, Lush fans are very devoted. After trying several Lush products, the only one that I really like is the Floating Island bath melt.

Beauty Addict reviews several mass-market creamy body washes. While Kristen was not too fond of Caress Ultra Rich Cream Body Wash, Jamie of Beauty of Life raved about Caress Ultra Rich Cream Body Wash (I like it too).

Mischo Beauty alerts readers to an article in the New York Times Section about celebrity makeup artists hired by mass-market brands to increase their prestige. The NYT article covers Pat McGrath (P&G brands Cover Girl and Max Factor), Joanna Schlip (Physicians Formula), and my beloved Matin (Neutrogena).

Girl-Woman-Beauty-Brains-Blog presents 5 laws of writing "The List" or "Bucket List." I'll flesh mine out later, but suffice it to say that among the things that I want to do is to pursue my love of India in a deeper, more profound way.

The popular leftist blog Crooks and Liars referenced my article Iggy Pop for the Rock'n'Roll Hall of Fame for their post Late Night with Iggy Pop. Too bad they don't know I prefer Little Green Footballs as a political blog.

Finally, Christopher Drummond gives a shout-out to The Style Page. Thanks, Christopher!

Well, that's it for now. I'll be out of pocket next week, with limited (if any) Internet access - visiting my mother in St. Louis.

Hi,
I've been a fan of your blog for awhile now and I always enjoy reading it. I also write a blog makeup2beauty.blogspot.com and I'm a member of Total Beauty as well. I was wondering if you'd be interested in exchanging links?
I think our blogs would complement each other.
Take care,
Agostina
