THE BEES KNEES

Biting winds, dry air and frigid temps make the winter months a nightmare for skin care. Keeping moisturized can be a struggle, but Burt's Bees now has a great line of new body lotions that puts an end to the war against cracked feet and flaky legs.

The lotions moisturize skin for up to 24 hours, are nongreasy, 99 percent natural and certified by the Natural Products Association. There are four new versions, and they are all $8 for 6 ounces: Naturally Nourishing Milk and Honey; Fragrance Free Shea Butter and Vitamin E; Soothingly Sensitive Aloe and Buttermilk; and Richly Replenishing Cocoa and Cupuacu Butters, which has a wonderful, light chocolaty scent.

BETTER THAN AN INVISIBLE PLANE

Getting dressed up and heading out for the night is not too different from changing into your superhero persona, and now you can combine the two with MAC's Wonder Woman makeup line.

The packaging comes in primary comic-book colors and the shades of the eye shadows and lipsticks are titled with drama-infused names: Defiance, Paradise Island, Star Studded and Real Drama.

Like all MAC products, they are good-quality items, from the long-wearing mascara to the Wonder Woman Reflects Glitter.

Items rang in price from $15 for the mascara up to $40 for the four-shade eye shadow kit.

Get them and increase your WOW! BANG! and POW! factor. Check them out at www.maccosmetics.com.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Anderson Cooper just always stood out for me. He always had this kind of really cool ... playful glint behind his eye, which I always found quite funny."

-- Daniel Radcliffe says on the "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" website about the CNN anchor. Radcliffe stars as J. Pierrepont Finch on Broadway in the revival of the musical, opening this month, in which Cooper is the narrator.
