Since first offering 20-something American men the chance to smell like douche bags, Axe Body Spray has consistently marketed itself as a foolproof chick magnet. And when the company’s newest scent, Anarchy, debuts at the end of the month, women too can smell like regulars at the Jersey Shore cast’s favorite haunt, Karma. First, it was heinous man jewelry; now, body spray for women. Can we all just agree to let each sex keep exclusive sovereignty over respective accessories/grooming needs? Kthanks.
As Axe’s senior brand manager puts it, “We’ve been hearing for some time that females have been asking for and looking for their very own scent of Axe.” Okay, who are these women? J. Woww? I’ve always dreamed of smelling like dark tanning oil and stale cigarette smoke!
Yeah, I think I’ll pass.

Editor’s Note: I have the weekly honor of culling through all of the staff’s blog posts, editing and curating to create a week’s worth of m.blog posts designed to entertain, enlighten and amuse. Every now and again, two of my colleagues will write on the same topic, leaving me with the difficult decision of which to publish. The introduction of Axe body spray was apparently big news amongst the ladies at mm/c, and both Abby & Hannah took compellingly different approaches in their common derision. So in a first for m.blog, I’ve decided to run both. Am sure both will entertain and amuse….enlighten, this time ‘round? Well…2 out of 3 ain’t bad! Read on….
How do you bounce back from a VERY public and damaging affair? Why, launch a beauty line, of course! Rather than fade quietly into obscurity—or at least back into the adult movie aisle—former Tiger Woods mistress (and current porn actrice) Joslyn James is gearing up to unveil the aptly titled Shameless, a line of 13 nail colors set to debut in 2012. With names like “Not Just a Porn Star,” “More than a Mistress” and “36DD,” these sound less like nail polish colors than bottled STDs.
Clearly this girl wasn’t content being a run-of-the-mill slut; now she’s a real fame whore to boot.

If you haven’t watched Madison, the 5-year-old video beauty blogger, you’re missing out.
From bridal make-up to showing off her favorite nail polish hues, Madison has a large collection of beauty tutorials via YouTube.com and each one is better than the next. This little girl must watch some serious QVC to know how to market products as well as she does. Either that, or her mom wears a shit ton of make-up and serves as her inspiration. But, seriously, she’s as cute as a button and so is her pet dog, hermit crab…and recently added parrot. No, I’m not kidding.
Now, don’t get all up in my face about how a 5-year-old is wearing make-up because—after watching these—you’ll see how harmless it is. She’s not rocking M.A.C. lipgloss to kindergarten; it’s just for the amusement of her millions of fans and you know, sick Youtube.com pedophiles…
While I don’t recommend taking her make-up step-by-steps too seriously (I mean, she is only 5), I do suggest taking a few minutes to watch her in action.
Here are my favorite Madison videos to get you started:
And yes, my future daughter is going to be just like her (you know, only with brown hair and blue eyes).

I just about fell out of my chair when I saw these (what can only be described as) masterpieces. Depicting some of the most memorable scenes from Disney classics such as The Lion King, Aladdin, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Alice in Wonderland, 21-year-old artist Katie Alves decorated her OWN eyes with these scenes using an eyeshadow brush, a lot of color, and what I can imagine as even more patience.
I need this girl to be my personal makeup artist. I can’t even come close to mastering the smoky eye let alone putting entire scenes from the most epic movies of all time on my eyelids!
