Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret
Is it a robot insect? A fancy ball point pen? A heated gelato scooper? Nope! It’s the new Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret. No clamp? No wand? How does it work? As you squeeze the bar it feeds your hair around a heated chamber inside the top of the tool. It’s like hot rollers, only faster, less spiky and automatic! $60, Target, Clearview Mall, 4500 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, (504) 888-2184, target.com
Christian Louboutin Beauté Nail Colour
Hard to believe this dangerous-looking weapon could find a most-favored place on your nightstand, but word on the streets is that Christian Louboutin Beauté Nail Colour is worth every penny. Try this shade first (Laboutin Red) and paint your way through the palette like a manicure pro. $50, Sephora, Lakeside Shopping Center, 3301 Veterans Memorial Blvd., Metairie, (504) 830-4567, sephora.com
Am I the only one wondering how blush this pink could possibly have survived the ’80s? Gotcha, it’s actually a mash-up: make-up sponge meets blotting papers. Blotterazzi is the beauty blender product that soaks up a girl’s biggest challenge: oil excess. A little pink pat-pat keeps you looking just-made-up all day long. $20, amazon.com
How’s a sock puppet supposed to help you with your make-up? Or maybe it’s a luxury soap dispenser. No my friends, behold the Temptu Air, the first ever handheld airbrush-makeup device on the market. And with just the touch of a button, this cordless, rechargeable wonder can apply foundation, blush, bronzer or highlights with professional perfection. Throw in a cup of coffee, and I’m sold! $200, temptu.com
