This week, Cindy of  Prime Beauty  is hosting Fashion Flash.   I am in the middle of  Budget Beauty series so I’ve become a huge fan of  Prime Beauty’s Frugal Friday feature.  This week she  featured a tempting palatte  of eye shadows made even more tempting at half price.   Cindy has also started to feature great holiday gift sets including  Kiehls’s Creme de Corps Holiday Collection with 100% of sales going to children’s causes around the world and Tarte Baby it Bold Outside   blush or lip gloss  sets.

This week the host of Fashion Flash is Kari of Fab Over 40.  This constantly updated site  has become  my go-to  spot for all things beauty.  In recent weeks she has  profiled   five new delicious lingerie brands, a new long lasting lipstick with vitamins and without parabens,  and a honey  bath scrub from Laura Mercier.  I  have to admit I want them all.

I often have problems with celebrity beauty tips.  When asked  how they maintain a perfect body they claim a)  they never diet, b) drink a gallon of water a day or c) they inherrited their goods looks.  Seriously?
