Courteney Cox has a new very brief blog entry on XOJane, a website launched in May by Jane Pratt, the founder of Sassy Magazine and Jane. I used to read Sassy when I was a teen in the late 80s so I have a lot of respect for Pratt. (I recently some criticism of XOJane as being too “girly”, although I think it fit its niche perfectly, it’s an online women’s magazine that is necessarily girly at times but isn’t dumb about it. Their articles are pretty eclectic. Others have countered that girly is fun and that no one is talking down to the audience there. You definitely can’t please everyone.)
Getting back to Courteney’s blog entry, she posted a photo of her “must have” beauty items and one is Clairol Natural Instincts! She also likes some higher end brand of makeup from Neiman Marcus.
1. Clairol Natural Instincts Brass-Free For Brunettes, $8.99 at Walgreens.com
For dark-haired girls who don’t like red hues coming through, I use Clairol Natural Instincts Brass-Free For Brunettes. It lasts about 28 days, but only costs $9.00.
2. Edward Bess Makeup
I’m really into Edward Bess Makeup. I recently was in a hurry, as usual, and popped into Neiman Marcus where I had my makeup put on by the salesperson at the Edward Bess counter. I bought everything she put on me. The two eye shadow palettes (Ultra-Luminous Eye Shadow, $30, NeimanMarcus.com) they sell are pretty much all you ever need. Great compact base as well (Sheer Satin Compact Cream, $60, NeimanMarcus.com).
I’ve had prematurely (well maybe not anymore) gray hair since I was in my very early 20s. Over a third of my hair is gray and I have to dye it at home every month. I’ve gone to many different salons to see if they can do a better job, and even the best don’t match the results I get at home with less time and significantly less cost. I’ve always used Clairol products too. (I used to use Hydrience before my color was discontinued, now I use Nice ‘N Easy.) So I can vouch for their effectiveness, but I go a little “darker” with a reddish blonde and haven’t tried to bleach my hair at home. From what I understand it’s easier to “deposit” color on the hair with a darker shade than it is to “lift” it with a lighter color. So for those of you who go lighter, the salon might be the best bet.
With Courteney, though, she’s looking really plastic lately to put it lightly. So while she may use drugstore products for her hair, it’s not like she’s using Oil of Olay or that L’oreal Paris line on her face and getting those results. (She represents Kinerase anyway.) She’s admitted “trying” Botox, but claimed she hated it. It’s clear that’s not all she’s had done. That is a face full of fillers.
I’ll say something nice though – Courteney’s hair looks gorgeous. Clairol should hire her as a spokesperson.
