you know you're a beauty writer when...
you read the above quote in a new york times article last month, during the height of the blagojevich scandal, and all you can think is "hold on a second...what paul mitchell brush? i've got to try this brush!"
turns out the brush in question is the paul mitchell 413 sculpting brush. i got my hands on one, and i have to say, i do see why he might have gotten addicted - it's lightweight and gives a great scalp massage!
$7.50 at authorized paul mitchell retailer salons.
