Smashbox Photo Finish Primer: Secret to Flawless Skin

May 19, 2010   |   Contributor: Carly Zinderman

Health & Beauty: Have you ever noticed a woman with perfect skin, not a wrinkle or blemish in sight? Chances are she's using Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, a secret beauty weapon that women in the know have been using for a while.

A favorite with our own JustLuxe editor, who describes the luxurious product as "amazing," Photo Finish Primer does everything a foundation is supposed to do, but doesn't quite: fills in wrinkles and fine lines, goes on lightly and smoothly and allows foundation to go on flawlessly. For a really natural look, the "velvety-smooth" formula can also be worn alone.

With so much perfection in one tiny bottle, it's no wonder that the best-selling primer has won awards including Best of Sephora Award for Best Primer, been named one of Marie Claire's "25 Beauty Products That Will Change Your Life" and an InStyle Best Beauty Buy.

Forbes New List of Billionaire Moms

May 18, 2010   |   Contributor: Carly Zinderman

News & Trends: According to Forbes, there aren't a whole lot of billionaire mothers in the world. Forbes calculates that there are just 70 billionaire mothers. And of those 70, a mere 8 are self-made, a stark contrast to the 555 self-made billionaires who are fathers. Here's a look at a few of the rich women on the list.

Margaret C. Whitman, better known as Meg, has had a long career in business, counting Disney, Hasbro and eBay amongst her former employers. These days, the Long Island native is making a run for California governor.

Other wealthy entrepreneurial types include Rosalia Mera, who launched Spanish clothing line Zara, with her now ex-husband Amancio Ortega. Doris Fisher of The Gap and Benetton's Guiliana Benetton also benefitted from founding global fashion powerhouses.

The world's richest woman and mom is Christy Walton. Her gargantuan fortune was inherited from her husband John, son of the founder of Wal-Mart Stores, when he died in 2005 when his private plane crashed in Wyoming.

All these fabulous women leave me wondering: what do you get a billionaire mama for Mother's Day? Or her birthday for that matter?

May 13, 2010   |   Contributor: James Rothaar

Health & Beauty: The Vibram FiveFingers sports shoe fits the foot like a glove covers a hand. The shoes provide the feeling of being completely barefoot with just enough protection to ensure safety. There are unsolicited reviews by athletes and medical professionals who agree that wearing a shoe with this shape makes the feet and lower legs stronger and improves balance and agility.

Time magazine named Vibram's radically shaped sports shoes one of its Best Inventions of 2007. Followers of the toe-glove with a sole are increasing daily, as the company's Facebook page has about 45,000 followers who "like" the company. That number has more than doubled since year-ending 2009.
