It's no secret Britney Spears encountered a few stormy years along the way, but these days, she's looking better than ever. Last night, the singer took her boys to a Broadway show in NYC, sporting some heavier, parted-to-the-side bangs of the swooping variety. Of course, the great thing about midlength to longer fringe is that it can be easily swept away from the face to create a bang-free look. Even short bangs can be hidden with a little wax and/or pins. If you're a bang-wearer, tell us: do you create versatile looks by styling your bangs in different fashions, or are you totally devoted to wearing them the same way each day?

"Who me?" Yes you, Kim. WWD is reporting that Ms. Kardashian is launching her own fragrance, which she says "really captures who I am." I think every celebrity says something along those lines when they launch a fragrance, but I'm willing to give Kim the benefit of the doubt. After all, prior to her celebdom, she started her career as a boutique curator, and she still has a hand in her store, Dash. What do you think? Will her fragrance keep up with her glamorous image, or are you going to give this one a pass?
I've long been a fan of Boots makeup and skincare line, and I was pretty happy when it jumped across the pond and into American drugstores. But I haven't tried its Vanishing Day Cream ($13). The packaging is adorable, though, and reader stef42678 has nothing but raves about it. She says:
I really love this moisturizer because it's thick and creamy, and it really makes my skin smooth. It has a light, vanilla scent that's so yummy, and doesn't feel oily when it's on. I like that it's so thick, because it's calming to my skin and makes it so soft.

I've loved this stuff since it first came out, and if there's a drugstore product that deserves a post, it's this one. Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Nail Polish ($5) has, on many an occasion, saved me from losing my mind waiting for polish to dry and ruining an entire manicure out of sheer frustration.
When I looked in my drawer this morning, I had seven bottles of the stuff, ranging from bright, sunny yellow to teal to perfect French-tip cream. I'm not saying they have the most gorgeous colors, because they're not all that special, but for five bucks and only two minutes for fully dry hands, this stuff absolutely can't be beat. This is my day-to-day nail polish. Sure, I might throw on something luxe, beautifully hued, and boring as all get-out to wait on when a new episode of True Blood is on and I'm going to be glued to the couch anyway, but Insta-Dry is what keeps me a happy and productive member of society. Thanks, Sally.
MMMMM, honey. It's by far my favorite sweetener, and Winnie the Pooh will forever be my first love. But I didn't realize, until recently, that honey is also a pretty darn good beauty product. I've put together four tips for using honey in your beauty routine; to get all sugared up, read on.
I know that most of you aren't fans of animal testing, but what about animal ingredients? Traditional fragrance ingredients like musk and civet are taken from musk deer and cats, respectively, and entail killing the animal. Aside from the ethics involved in killing animals like these in the first place, there's also the fact that there are lab-synthesized versions of these substances available. And yet some of the most expensive perfumes still use the real things because they're of a higher "quality." What do you think? If you were presented with a pricey fragrance you knew had one of these ingredients, would you keep it, or send it right back where it came from? And do you look for animal ingredients when you're shopping for a scent?
