After all, during the Festival of Lights, what more fitting gift is there than a beautiful candle? The tin is so pretty that you barely need to wrap it, and the embossed pattern is done in festive blues and golds. Plus, your giftee can always use her new present as a gorgeously scented way to light each successive night's lights (or at least light the shamash). Pretty, appropriate, and surprisingly utilitarian, too.
Answer: Only one! We know, we know — first impressions are super daunting. Luckily, you’re already super smart and clever with killer style, but that winning combo is nothing if your breath is less than fresh. The good news? Scope is here to help with Scope Dual-Blast.
You see, the folks at Scope know that in order to make a lasting (positive) impression you have to have two things: a bright, warm smile and fresh breath. It’s that easy. Bonus: Scope Dual-Blast comes in two bad breath-beating flavors. Both have unique technology that blasts away up to 98 percent of bad-breath germs and strong food odors. It’s available in Fresh Mint Blast and Icy Mint Blast flavors, meaning your chances for a fabulous first impression just doubled (yay, you)!

The other day I did actress Amy Poehler for The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She was coming from the set of her series, Parks and Recreation, and she arrived to the dressing room in her character's hair and makeup. It was pretty and polished but not exactly talk-show fun. I had 10 minutes to turn her simple look into something a bit more striking. As I pumped up her makeup, I realized that women do this type of thing a lot. But with busy schedules, there's little time to build in a date with the mirror. I did these five tricks on Amy and I thought I'd share them with you!
Advertising is all around us, and it's particularly ubiquitous in the realm of beauty. Makeup, skin care, and fragrance get shilled to us constantly, and many of us are only passingly aware of the messages we're receiving. Which is why the 10 ads here are such a big deal. For better or for worse, these spots made a big impression — sometimes on consumers, sometimes on regulatory committees, and sometimes on censors. Whether you're wondering why Dakota Fanning's Marc Jacobs ads came under fire or just heard about those "talking vagina" commercials, all the most incendiary spots from the glossies, the web, and television are here.
