Jordin Sparks Launches Affordable New Scent

"American Idol" star Jordin Sparks is launching her first scent. The 20-year-old singer had affordability in mind in the concieving the new Because of You fragrance.

"When I was starting this project, I really wanted it to be affordable. I looked at some other celebrity fragrances, and they were like $80. Even now, I look at a fragrance that’s $80, and I can’t bring myself to spend that much," Sparks says. "In this economy especially, my fans deserve a high quality, reasonably priced scent."

The scent will retail at an introductory price of $9.50 for a 2.5-oz. bottle when it hits counters next week. It will then be sold at $14.95 on November 1. Because of You will be available at dots.com or Dots stores next week before it can be made available at Target stores in November.

The "Battlefield" hitmaker said that she also wants Because of You to "transfer easily from day to night," describing it as a "fruity floriental" scent.

Facial Plastic Surgery – Secret Clandestine Facial Recognition Countermeasures and The Future of the CIA

Currently, universities and private companies working to build more robust "Facial, facial plastic surgery, Recognition Technologies" due to Homeland Security funding for such research this area continues to grow. anti-terrorism efforts are a target all over the world, to share these technologies with its allies to use in their country. These new technologies will also be in the hands of our enemies or perhaps future, facial plastic surgery, enemies.

Early recognition software that will be sufficient to identify the people who want to capture and keep out of our sensitive areas for the CIA is a terrible problem of information leaks, the FBI is not much better. The FBI, facial plastic surgery, has lost about 2,000 laptops, now is the exchange of information and databases with other law enforcement officers and we all remember the recent sex scandals to espionage. The CIA can not keep a secret, nor those in Washington who know, as we 'have recently discovered with the wife of a senator is written in a major newspaper.

Then of course there are berths sell, facial plastic surgery, Deep Cover cooperatives and hackers are all waiting in the shadows and the collection, facial plastic surgery, of information. Once a database of operators has been exploited or blanket is an undercover agent discovered their faces will be databases for the capture of foreign countries such as using facial recognition, facial plastic surgery, and other software to recognize the man and equipment. Today, the problem is not widespread, but the technological advances of men are not exclusive to the U.

Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palette Collection: Like a Valentine from Bobbi (review, swatches, look)

Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palette Collection: Like a Valentine from Bobbi (review, swatches, look) Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Spring lipstick lip gloss eyeshadow eye shadow Exciting & New cosmetics Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palettes are a like a Valentine from Bobbi… they’re filled with chocolates and roses (the colors, that is). The spring 2011 palettes celebrate the first anniversary of the Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful campaign, are inspired by Brown’s favorite look – fresh and healthy – and are designed to be universally flattering.

There are two palettes to choose from – the Pretty Palette (above left), a lighter palette for light to medium complexions, and the Powerful Palette (above right and at top), a darker set for medium and dark complexions. I have a light to medium complexion but I tried the darker palette, because I was drawn to the deeper shades.

Strengths

I think the strengths of the palettes are the lip and cheek colors. Rosy tones can work well on most any complexion. In the Powerful Palette, there is a mix of soft and vibrant shades with two light lip glosses and a vivid rose lipstick: Pink Pudding Shimmer Lip Gloss (new color), Pink Bouquet Glitter Lip Gloss and Powerful Pink Lip Color (new color).

The two glosses are both pretty sheer and look quite similar on. My favorite is the Pink Bouquet Glitter Lip Gloss. I love the sparkly flecks in it (although they don’t show up so well in photos).

The Plum Blush gives a great, rosy flush that looks very healthy and springy. It packs a lot of pigment so it should show up on darker complexions. For someone like me, I only need to use a tiny bit.

The size of the palette is also good. It’s relatively slim and small so it will travel easily. And the price is right. You’re getting eight products for $60 (the same cost of buying three full-size shadows).

Weaknesses

I was underwhelmed by the eye shadows overall. Navajo (cream) is a great base to use all over and Chocolate Caviar (new dark brown) is wonderful for shading and lining. But the two pinks are the stars of the show and I don’t think I’ll be getting much use out of either of them: Burnished Rose (new matte pink) and Rose Gold (golden pink shimmer).

While all the colors are supposed to be universally flattering. I didn’t find the matte pink to be all that flattering; and it was just sort of a ho-hum shade. I would’ve been much happier with a matte taupe in that spot. The shimmery pink is nice, but it seemed rather ho-hum too. I would’ve preferred something a bit more exciting or out of the pink color family.

I like the pink and brown color theme. But I think it would’ve worked better to keep the pinks for the lips and cheeks and have done something different for the eyes. Maybe the colors in the lighter Pretty Palette would have worked better for me; but I’m doubtful, because the eye shadows shades look quite similar to the ones in the Powerful Palette.

If you tend to keep your eye makeup very subtle, this probably won’t be a big deal for you. This is more of a disappointment for someone like me who tends to do more with my eye makeup and keep lips on the more subtle side.

Wearing Navajo all over, Burnished Rose in the crease, Rose Gold on the lid, Chocolate Caviar at the outer corner and along the top and bottom lash lines.

Another weakness is the product layout. As with all palettes of this kind, the powder products tend to migrate into the creamy products. You have to be very careful to avoid this. In other palettes, the company has gotten around this by keeping the powders and creams separate. But that tends to lead to bulkier and probably costlier packaging.

The Bottom Line

Overall, the Powerful Palette includes many pretty lip and cheek shades, and a couple very wearable shadows mixed in with a couple less-than-stellar shadows in a very portable package at a very good price. It could be a great choice for anyone who likes to keep their look focused on lips and cheeks paired with more subtle eye makeup.

The Bobbi Brown Pretty Powerful Palette Collection is available now at Bobbi Brown counters and online.

Do Tell

What do you think of the colors and the packaging? Are you more of a eye girl or a lip girl? Do tell.
