It’s not quite summer yet, but I’m ready for that summer glow. I’m not one for self-tanners, so I think bronzers are a great way to get the sunkissed look of a tan without spending hours in the sun, which, having had skin cancer, I’m under strict orders from my dermatologist not to . But there are so many bronzing products it’s hard to know where to begin when choosing. I know I want to go for a liquid or a lotion since powders tend to dry my skin out. I tested a three liquid bronzers — by NARS, Benefit and Smashbox respectively — to see which one gave me the exact hint of bronze I was looking for. Here are the pros, cons and my overall ratings of the products.
Target market: Men who come early. This Turkish Durex condom ad is especially for the one-and-a-half pump chumps of the world. That was said with total compassion, by the way. Everybody gets a little overexcited sometimes. I wonder what the “delaying effect” is … A numbing lubricant? Or maybe the condoms are so thick that the man can’t feel anything. [Buzzfeed]
We get that having a tan can feel good, but most of us don’t understand Tanning Mom’s desire to obtain that leathery shade of brown. And then there are others for whom Patricia Krentcil is a tanning icon. Trish Paytas — you might remember her from an episode of “My Strange Addiction” – doesn’t get why everyone is attacking Tanning Mom. “I don’t know why people were making such a fuss — [Tanning Mom's] a beautiful color. Her tan would look great on me,” said the 24-year-old lingerie model who spends about $40,000 a year to get her skin that color. We beg to differ.
We suspect Trish is suffering from tanorexia, but she doesn’t agree. “I’m not addicted. I could stop any time. But I feel so much better and confident when I’m tanned,” she explained. You can’t argue with denial. But you can argue with her styling choices. In particular, I’m not getting the white makeup. Click through to see more of the tannest human beings we’ve ever seen. Warning: You may have the sudden urge to run out and buy SPF 80. Perfectly normal. [The Sun UK]
According to In Touch Magazine, Casper Smart, not only got his penis inked, but got his “girlfriend’s name tattooed on [his] nether region.” According to a friend, “Casper surprised J.Lo with this token of his affection – and she was thrilled with the latest addition to his already inked-up body … Jennifer thinks Casper’s tattoos are sexy, but this one is her favorite, for obvious reasons … She loves it, and she loves him.”
Oh no. Fatal mistake. If this tidbit is true, Casper has just ensured himself a breakup. Getting a GF/BF’s named prematurely inked on your body (especially on the dick) is a very bad omen. That’s gonna suck getting that lasered off once Jennifer tells him that their relationship was just for fun. [WOW]
Put a flipper in her and call her a reality star, because “Toddlers & Tiaras’” Alana (aka Honey Boo Boo Child) is getting her own show. Ms. Alana’s spinoff — working title “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” — will be coming to TLC late this summer and will follow Alana in her pageant pursuits and her day-to-day life in rural Georgia doing normal things like picking up roadkill for the family cookout. Best part: The show will also feature family members like belching mom, June Shannon, chalk-mining dad, Sugar Bear, and sisters Lauryn “Pumpkin,” Jessica “Chubbs,” and Anna “Chickadee.” OMG yessssss, please! Congrats to our little tummy-squeezing, dollar-hollering, Go-Go juice guzzling spirit animal muse ! There are various celebrations going on here in the Frisky office. I am playing with my stomach fat as we speak. But dare I say it? What about Makenzie? [Us Weekly]
Just say no to lingerie that accomplishes the opposite of its intended effect. Like this Psychic Friends Network look that debuted at at Tokyo’s Bunka Fashion College lingerie design competition. My crystal ball predicts that no one wants to sleep with a lady wearing a turban and a pair of omnipotent panties. Even Ms. Cleo wouldn’t be caught dead wearing this in the boudoir.
