NARS Super Orgasm Blush
Sephora $25

A beauty phenomenon just got bigger. NARS’ Orgasm blush has long been a favorite - the peachy pink color mimics a natural flush that looks good on just about anybody. The color’s so popular that it’s also been made into a lipgloss and a NARS Multiple. Now there’s Super Orgasm - same great color, but with golden flecks to create more drama and a more intense look. Perfect for the upcoming holidays, Super Orgasm blush is that universal product that works for everyone, whether they wear makeup often or not. It’ll make a great gift, too!


The new location and design of J Salon - in the IBM Building at 1240 Ala Moana Blvd. - is modern, stylish and fresh, complementing the stylists and their creative, up-to-date talents.

Charcoal-toned walls, black ceilings, high-gloss black custom cabinetry and chrome fixtures create a fashion-forward interior that houses top of the line hair products from Shu Uemura and Keratase.

The new space also features a Color Bar, where clients can watch as their color is formulated and mixed. And, once their color has been applied, clients relax comfortably in a serene atmosphere. Stylist and co-owner Joe Randazzo - a former stylist, educator and art director for Vidal Sassoon - is proud to be celebrating J Salon’s fifth anniversary Nov. 14 at their new location.

Stop by and inquire about haircuts for men and women, hair coloring and extensions and Japanese hair straightening. Call 550-4441 or visit for more information.

There is another reason to love the Kaimuki neighborhood—Nini’s! Nini’s is a boutique/exchange/ buy/sell/consignment shop. Find tagged (new!) items from Banana Republic, J. Crew, Betsey Johnson, BCBG MaxAzria, La Rok, T-Bags, Marc Jacobs, L.A.M.B., Lanvin, and more. There is a great denim selection and racks of trendy items like cropped jackets and vests. The good news: Most items are under $50. This cute boutique also carries new sandals and accessories, as well as slightly used designer handbags. It’s a treasure trove of great fashion finds at bargain prices. Go to Nini’s and buy, sell and buy!
