Saturday's Best of Blogs

The New York Times examines at the downsides of "Masstige" collections, and the loss of artistic freedom that many designers must swallow if they want to collaborate with a major store like H&M, Target or Uniqlo. Also, they get paid a whole lot less than you'd think...

The Non Blonde reviews "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," and I couldn't agree more with her observations.

I'm sick to death of widespread rumors about beauty products causing cancer. The Beauty Brains not only debunk the myth about antiperspirants causing breast cancer, they go on to explain the science of why it's totally impossible for the aluminum in antiperspirants to cause any form of cancer.

Afrobella reviews makeup removers.

Totally overwhelmed by all the fashion week coverage? Me too. That's why I was so excited to see that Omiru simplified the clothes into a list of the five most wearable trends and least wearable trends.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

I believe that the hype about aluminum and breast cancer is BS, but the evidence for a connection between aluminum and Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders is pretty strong... Besides, since I stopped using super-strong aluminum anti-perspirants, I've stopped sweating nearly as much.

i think you have to be really careful about saying that beauty products don't cause cancer. first of all, we don't REALLY know who the beauty brains are.what if they are scientists for a beauty corp. and it behooves them to talk about the safety side? i have found that some of their info seems suspect. i think that the problem does not lie in whether one or two products a day would cause cancer (or other diseases) but the multiple products, maybe multiple times a day--that's what they talk about. besides the fact that some of the ingredients beauty corps use are known to be toxic in certain amounts (and not the amounts they feed to lab rats).
