Links We Love: Week of January 16, 2012

This week is going to be a great week. Especially if the rest of the week is anywhere near is great as the following Links we Love:

Fotoshop by Adobé – By Jesse Rosten

Why we loved it: OK, we must admit that before and after eye photo towards the beginning hit a little close to home for us, but we’ve got a great sense of humor — and the rest of this video is not only funny but also extremely thought-provoking. Think about the way “beauty” is thrown at us in magazines and on TV, think about a “perfection” that is unachievable. And who decided what is beautiful and what is perfect anyway? Let’s all laugh at the absurdity. “They’re almost unreal…istic.”

But I really do love our eye cream!

Hair Secrets from “The Hunger Games” –Beautylish

Why we loved it: YES. Katniss’s braid is perfect, even better than I could have imagined. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Asking yourself what a Katniss is? Then you should probably read The Hunger Games and then come back to discuss the pure perfection of the braid, how Elizabeth Banks’s entire Effie Trinket look is better than I could have ever imagined and our excitement over how Stanley Tucci will look.

‘Hunger Games’ Hair Colorist Created Over 500 Color Designs – Beauty High

Why we loved it: I know, I know. But it was all over the beauty sites last week! And just look at the hair. How can anyone not be excited about this movie? These brightly colored wigs are for residents of Panem, where they have no real worries and their only concern is being brighter, shinier, more outrageous and ultimately more ridiculous. Imagine that?

Product Reviews | Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti Wrinkle Cream, Revitalizing Microdermabrasion, and Sunsoak Age-Defying Self Tanner – KP Fusion

She honestly reviewed each product and — spoiler alert — she liked them all! Want to win your own Hydroxatone? Enter her giveaway here!

Really. See More Articles by Dori
