Flower lip butter

Flower lip butter

Oh, you have your own fashion line and fragrance? So what! Nowadays, it seems that it’s not enough for you to just be a celebrity with your own clothing line, fragrance, shoes, the list can go on and on. Now, several celebs even have their own beauty product line! If you're wondering if any of these products are worth shopping for, read on to see which picks made my list.

Flower by Drew Barrymore

What it is: The former face of CoverGirl cosmetics, this actress/new mom is the latest to join the cosmetic club.

Her new line, Flower, features the tag line “Love The Way You Look.” Available for purchase at Wal-Mart and Walmart.com, there are 181 units in the collection that ranges from eyeliners to nail polish.

The packaging itself is pretty clean and simple which is great because (and this is just my personal opinion) beauty products that feature tons of embellishments are usually a turn off.

According to recent article in Women’s Wear Daily, which announced the launching of the line, the formulas are custom-made at the same price as those used in luxury products.

Key product: Lip Butter ($6.98, Walmart.com) Anything that has the word “butter” in it has to be amazing, right? Well, this is no different. Available in 9 shades (some are already sold out), this lip moisturizer glides on smooth and leaves lips feeling super soft with a hint of shine.

Nuance by Salma Hayek

Nuance By Salma Hayek

What it is: Who knew that Salma harbored such a love for beauty products? The actress and mom is the brains behind beauty brand Nuance, an impressive array of cosmetics, hair as well as skincare products.

Inspired by her grandmother, Hayek says she created the line “to help every woman enhance the nuances that define her individual beauty.” Each product is available for purchase exclusively at CVS and CVS.com.

Key product: Anti-Aging Wrinkle Filler Eye Serum ($20, CVS.com) As a personal skincare product hoarder, it makes sense that I would gravitate more towards these items in the line. The Anti-Aging Wrinkle Filler Eye Serum contains one of those cooling rollerballs, which makes for easy application. Each of her skincare products boasts some type of “beauty secret” outlined on the side of the package so you can pretend that you’re exclusively privy to some exotic ingredients while applying.

CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm

CoverGirl Queen Collection by Queen Latifah

What it is: Rapping, acting, singing…there isn’t much this woman hasn’t done! She not only serves as the face of CoverGirl, but she’s also got her very own stand alone collection with the brand specifically targeted to women of color.

Key product: CoverGirl Queen Collection Jumbo Gloss Balm ($7.49, at Target and other drugstores nationwide) In addition to hoarding skincare products, I’m also known to do the same with lip gloss. However, this year, I’ve promised myself and the rest of my beauty blogging friends that I’m going to strictly stick to lipstick. However, this gloss balm is like the perfect hybrid between a lip gloss and a lipstick in that it leaves your lips super soft and hydrated with.



Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford

Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford

Meaningful Beauty By Cindy Crawford

What it is: Yes, she’s one of the most stunning women to ever walk the planet. Alright, so maybe that’s a bit of a stretch, but you have to admit that Cindy Crawford is a pretty attractive lady. That’s basically how her skincare line started: she wanted to be able to maintain her beauty while still living her busy life. So, she partnered with French anti-aging specialist Dr. Jean Louis Sebagh (the man responsible for helping her to maintain that amazing skin of hers over the years) to develop her own line of skincare products.

Yahoo! Shopping Editor, Krista DeWeese has been using the Meaningful Beauty products for 5 weeks and noticed a huge difference in the texture and tone of her skin. Krista says, "In just a short amount of time, my skin is totally renewed. I've used many products over the course of a decade and haven't seen results this dramatic! My pores are disappearing and my skin tone is even, and I didn't even have to wait that long to see a difference."

Key product: Crème de Serum (bundled with the New Advanced System, $39.95, meaningfulbeauty.com and also available at Sephora inside of JCPenney stores) It’s already quite confusing to figure out whether or not you should use a cream or serum. This is why it’s a great thing that Cindy and Dr. Sebagh figured that we all needed both so she created this triple potency product that combines the power of a serum with the rich moisturizing effects of a cream. Genius!

Khroma Beauty

Khroma Beauty

Khroma Beauty by Kim, Kourtney & Khloe Kardashian

What it is: They’ve already oversaturated the clothing market, so why not add in beauty? Say what you want about these reality starlets, but their makeup always looks flawless, so it makes total sense that they would come out with their own line of cosmetics.

Key product: Khloe’s Kardazzle Face Palette ($12.99, ulta.com) While I can’t say that I’ve tested every single item in the cosmetic line, I can say that I am a fan of this palette that contains the perfect eyeshadow to create a nude, smoky eye. As an added bonus, it also contains a blush and bronzer so it’s perfect for on-the-go touch ups.

    • The letter I had to write to my child’s teacher

      I was only in the classroom for 45 minutes, but that was long enough to compel me to write a letter to the teacher once I left. I’ll be honest, I have zero qualifications as it relates to child education. My only qualification and reason for being in a kindergarten class that day is my oldest child is a kindergartner. He attends a public school and I was in his classroom as a parent volunteer. His teacher had asked parents to sign up to help during the daily Literacy Center portion of the morning. I was excited to go in, see my son in his classroom, and meet his classmates. When I arrived, the class was sitting on the floor, singing, and drawing the alphabet in the air with their fingers.

      At this point, everyone, including the legal system, is starting to see the joke behind Lamar Sally and his perpetual scheme to drain his ex-wife Sherri Shepherd of every dime she has. Though Shepherd was already shelling out $4,100 in monthly child support, just last month, Sally was requesting more.  He argued that Shepherd was earning more money than when the judgment was first made and in addition to wanting more of it, he was also requesting that Shepherd pay an additional $75,000 in legal fees. But a California judge shut all of that down, throwing out Sally’s request. The judge determined that New Jersey and not California has jurisdiction over the child support case Sally attempted to

    • NATO in the crosshairs: Who's not paying their bills

      President Trump has a beef with NATO. He's called the alliance "obsolete" and accused other members of not spending their fair share. "We are spending a tremendous amount in NATO and other people proportionately less," he said during the campaign. "No good." When it comes to costs, Trump has a point. Only five of NATO's 28 members -- the U.S., Greece, Poland, Estonia and the U.K. -- meet the alliance's target of spending at least 2% of GDP on defense. Getting more NATO members to pay their way will be something Trump and U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May can agree on when they meet Friday at the White House. The alliance increased overall defense spending for the first time in two decades in 2015,

    • Get a First Look at the Palm Springs Home Where the Obamas Are Vacationing Right Now

      After handing over the keys to the White House to President Trump on Friday, President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama retreated to this stunning 11,000-square-foot stucco home in the Palm Springs area of Southern California for a little time off. Built in the early 1970s by architect Howard Lapham, the home (nicknamed Icha Mayapan, or “exclusive estate”) is a standout example of Mayan Revival design, a popular midcentury style influenced by several Frank Lloyd Wright-designed homes from the 1920s, including the Hollyhock and Ennis houses in Los Angeles. Its current owners, James Costos, ambassador to Spain and Angora under President Obama, and L.A.-based designer Michael S. Smith, who also redecorated the White House while the Obamas lived there, restored the home several years ago.

    • US Navy's Ultimate Dream Weapon (That Russia Feared): Merging a Super Battleship and an Aircraft Carrier

      In the early 1980s, the Reagan Administration was looking to fund high visibility defense programs. Reagan had been elected on a platform of rebuilding the armed services after the “hollowing out” of the early 1970s. One example was the reactivation of four World War II-era Iowa-class battleships, which started in 1982. Each of the four ships, Iowa, Missouri, New Jersey and Wisconsin was refurbished, their sixteen and five-inch guns brought back online. Each battleship was also equipped with sixteen Harpoon anti-ship missiles, thirtytwo Tomahawk land attack cruise missiles and four Phalanx close-in weapon systems (CIWS) for defense. The four battlewagons were swiftly retired after the end of
