When Yoko Ono says “makeup tips,” you pretty much have to assume going into it that there will be very little makeup involved. How much makeup, exactly? None. Zero makeup. In fact, I have no idea what kind of “tips” these are. But I’m sure they’re good, useful ones, whatever they are. “Take rainbow pills — but with caution.” Indispensable wisdom! Like a fine wine, Yoko gets weirder with age. I appreciate that. [Fashionista]
“I did it with my best girlfriend, so she and I go and we get our lips done. Fine. I have it like that for my whole career, right? So then cut to a couple of years ago, I have a doctor remove as much as they possibly can because it got to the point where they were yucky. You know, they get hard. It’s gross. They are now whatever that was after they took out as much of the silicone as they could.”
— Lisa Rinna is the self-proclaimed “pioneer” of lip injections, and you know what? I kind of think she’s right: she’s the first celebrity (I use that term loosely) who I remember seeing on TV and wondering, Is that lady half-tilapia? Nowadays, I don’t even know what Lisa Rinna does for a living. I just think of her as a creepy, bloated pair of disembodied lips, and also a walking billboard for an anti-injectables PSA. This quote from Lisa’s “Today” appearance yesterday makes me increasingly nauseous the more I try to visualize it (should I stop?), and frankly, I’m disappointed that she isn’t actually half-tilapia. What a letdown. [Huffington Post]
Confession: I’ve never seen “Game of Thrones.” I know, I know; I shouldn’t be allowed to work for the Internet. I’m just a little bit gore-sensitive, like this one time I watched this movie “Valhalla Rising” and found it viscerally disturbing to the point of tears, and I’m worried that “GoT” is going to be like that for me, too. I should at least give it a chance, right? Anyway, even though I’ve never seen her in the show as Daenerys, I’m kind of obsessed with Emilia Clarke. She has the coolest eyebrows! And, duh, she looked amazing in this Victoria Beckham dress at the Season 3 premiere yesterday. I want her to be everywhere… and she probably will be. I just hope she isn’t actually dating Seth MacFarlane. She could do so, so much better.
Lazy ladies know what’s up: when it comes to tumbling home after a late night (or collapsing in front of the TV with a glass of wine, whatever floats your boat), face wipes are the only way to go. Why fuss with soap and water when you can just slap a cleansing wipe on your face and call it a day? I know a good thing when I see it, and I also know an even better thing (really): unlike the drugstore-brand towelettes I usually pick up (no shame), these biodegradable Purify Coconut Water Cleansing Wipes from Pacifica are formulated sans nasty chemicals with unpronounceable names. No phthalates, parabens, carmine, beeswax, lanolin, mineral oil, propylene glycol, petroleum, or FD&C colors, and 100% vegan and cruelty-free, they’re simply soaked in coconut water and natural exfoliating papaya, plus aloe and calendula extracts to soothe and calm. If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good face wipe, but 30 all-natural face wipes in a resealable, adorably patterned pouch at a price that’s beyond reasonable? I’m considering buying stock.

Karl Lagerfeld isn’t the most politically correct fellow around, nor is he necessarily the most reasonable, but he is delightful in the way that many kooky, mildly racist old European men just are. He has terrible things to say about almost everyone, but he says them so straight-forwardly and in such bastardized English that it’s next to impossible not to chuckle — he’s just kind of hilarious in the most inadvertent way. “I am not that pretentious; you have a distorted image of me,” Karl tells Harper’s Bazaar‘s executive editor, the fabulous Laura Brown, in this installment of “The Comedown,” her webseries for the mag. They chat about everything from Choupette (who, yes, Karl realizes is “the most beautiful and most famous cat in the world”) to what he would do if he was invisible for a day (robbery). You may want to skip this video if you’re firmly anti-Karl, because there’s a considerable chance you might actually start to find the man wildly endearing, warts and all. [Fashionista]
