When TANTLE TEEZER launched their innovative detangling hairbrush, it altered the way we brushed our hair forever. Hailed as ‘life changing’ and made for all hair types, the hairbrush delivered a stroke of genius with its revolutionary teeth configuration and ergonomic design.

Clinique has a thing for color. From its Chubby Sticks, which look like adult versions of crayons, to its Lid Smoothies, which come in cutesy colors like Impromt-Blue to Pinkgo Bilboa , the brand has never shied away from a technicolor display (except, of course, for its nudes).
But the new Cheek Pop—think of a crystal vase filled with bright gerber daisies—puts a little bit of youthfulness in a blush market that’s typically not terribly creative (except for say, Benefit Cosmetics, which has no fewer than 14 various types of blush, and each of them worth checking out). In fact, Cheek Pop ($21) is Clinique’s new wildly creative entry into the blush market, and one that places its fo

Ombre is a buzzword that’s so popular these days that it has its own place in the dictionary. But at-home ombre hair coloring? That’s an entirely different story.
L’Oreal’s Feria Wild Ombre ($12.99) is the first of its kind to put the power of ombre directly in women’s hands. In other words, yes, you can get ombre at home—that is, as soon as the kit arrives in stores next month. At a recent event, L’Oreal executives talked about the hot new hair coloring trends from around the world, including platinum blonde, red hair, and jet black. Ombre is very much a trend ever since Lindsay Lohan showed a picture of her hair tinted in several soft shades.
Celebrity hair colorist Christophe Robin says that the trick to doing ombre at home is the right formula and the right brush. “There’s a trick to getting it right,” he says. “Brush your hair and do the section behind your neck first; wear an old tee shirt and bring all your hair to the front [in other words, part your hair and bring the hair to the front], put the product on the brush and layer it on your hair.”
If you have a lot of thick hair, use more product; if you have finer hair, use less. L’Oreal Feria Wild was formulated with just the right amount of viscosity so that it doesn’t run all over your hair—it’s not too fluid as to be messy but flows enough so you can sweep it nicely on the ends of your hair. Robin also says that it’s important to use the brush horizontally and not vertically, since the color should be even across, and faded towards the ends. With L’Oreal’s new patented brush, you can target specific strands and create a lightened and darkened effect to your taste. Depending upon the intensity, you can achieve results in 25-49 minutes at home.
There are three shade ranges of Wild Ombre: for medium to dark hair, for dark blonde to light brown hair, and for light to medium blonde hair.
The formula uses a lightening technology that actually protects hair as it lightens it, and includes a Lightening Powder, a Creme and a Creme Developer to get the perfect look. It’s a three-part lightening system so that you can easily create ombré effects ranging from subtle and sexy to bold and edgy.
