Kathie Lee & Hoda’s Favorite Things
For their favorite things segment, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb shared some interesting items and pastry chef Mindy Segal brought in a special treat for the ladies.
Kathie Lee: Chanel Nail Polish “Island”
Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, and Sara Haines each had a nifty recommendation. Up first was Kathie Lee…she says she brings in something new all the time and people don’t always enjoy it, but whenever she changes up her nail polish people always ask about it. So, her favorite thing of the day is Chanel nail polish…the color she is in love with right now is Island, which is a pearly, oyster color. It’s very beachy!
Hoda: Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Review
For Hoda Kotb, her favorite thing is her face cream she uses. It is called Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant and she says it works amazingly well for her because her face is so oily. It leaves her face feeling clean and open.
Sarah Haines: Oribe Beach Spray Review
For Sara Haines, her favorite thing is Oribe Beach Spray. It has no salt in it, so it doesn’t dry out the color of your hair and it gives the tousle look and it smells good. They all enjoy the slogan on the bottle…”Only to be followed with lipstick and heels.”
