New Lippies Protect Your Pucker

Since we hear your lips are the secret to youth and all, it would only make sense that you’d do everything in your power to protect them, right? Lancôme just launched a new line of lip gloss with anti-aging ingredients, called the Lancôme L’Absolu Crème De Brilliance, which seems to be just the way to save yourself from a prematurely elderly-looking pucker. The collection includes eight different colors, all of which are made with Pro-Xylane, Lancôme’s anti-aging molecule. The glosses retail for $29, but if that’s youth in a bottle, maybe it’s worth it?

This style maven wore custom Minx Nails in a money design at the 2010 Grammy Awards. And she even stepped up her Minx game by adding rhinestones to her nails. Find out the answer after the jump. [LA, 2/2/10] Keep reading »

Snakes On A Face: Snake Serum For Anti-Aging?

Not to reinforce stereotypes, but this one is fairly common—a lot of women are scared s**tless of snakes. (Well, except maybe for Britney, but there’s something a bit crazy going on upstairs there in the first place.) Despite this phenomenon, the one way females might feel totally OK about snakes is if their powerful juices were packaged in a pretty, expensive ampoule, and somehow presented as miracle products. That’s what Rodical’s new Glamoxy Snake Serum aims to do. Valued at almost $200 per bottle, the formula claims to be “Botox in a bottle,” and actually doesn’t contain any real snake spit but rather “Syn-Ake, a neuropeptide that copies the effect the South-East Asian Temple Viper’s venom has on its victims.” What does this stuff do? It freezes your muscles for several hours after application, similar to a perma-grin post-Botox. (Lovely.)

Brandy’s Drawn On Alien Eyebrows

Is that Spock? All Brandy is missing are some elf-ears and she could pass for the bazaarly-browed alien alum. It’s not bad enough she’s promoting a new reality show on VH1, she has to do it looking like her eyebrows are scared of the rest of her face? Girl, grab a kleenex, wipe wipe wipe, and hire a professional to pencil those bad boys in. Keep reading »

Breform Means You Never Have To Wear A Bra Again?

Perhaps you’ve heard of the boob lift, a surgical procedure that hoists up your sagging breasts. Now there’s the internal bra, which also does this, but goes one step further by putting a reinforcing structure in place, so that you don’t actually have to wear a bra. Ever. The product used is called Breform—a firm mesh cup that’s implanted under a layer of breast skin, effectively providing a support to lift and hold them. While this kind of sounds like a miracle procedure, some of the details are not so pleasant. A plastic surgeon who performs the technique explains, “Over time, the mesh gets incorporated into the breast as the body produces a fibrous tissue that holds the structure in place — like a permanent bra under the skin.”

The procedure is relatively new, but so far, none of the 600 women to participate have had any complications. What do you think? Something you’d be interested in after some more time and research has passed? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

2 More Things Found In Your Makeup Bag That’ll Kill You

We’ve already covered Dr. Oz’s finding on how lip gloss ain’t exactly your friend when it comes to your health (petroleum jelly is a byproduct of oil drilling, and when you spread it on your lips, you end up eating it, which is essentially the same as drinking gasoline, or so he claims), but what he also mentioned yesterday on his show were two more secret killers you probably use everyday as a part of your makeup routine … Keep reading »

Snooki Gets De-Snookified With A Make-Under


This morning Amelia posted a photo of Snooki (from “Jersey Shore”) post-makeover, but now we’ve got video evidence of the transformation. “Inside Edition” dolled everyone’s favorite party midget down this week, removing the bronzer, the crotch-length dress and the now-notorious pouf for a decidedly more refined look. There were still boobs all over the place and a healthy amount of twirling, fist pumping and lady bit exposure; personally, I don’t think stripping Snooki of her clothes also robbed her of the insane interesting personality that makes her so memorable. Could it be that the pouf does not, in fact, make the guidette? [The Cut] Keep reading »

Lauren Conrad Wants To Talk To You About Domestic Violence

This week I went to a Mark makeup event in Soho and saw two important things (among others): this new PSA on preventing violence against women and Mark’s spokesperson, Lauren Conrad, in the flesh. (Regarding the latter, she is one of those celebs who’s even cuter in real life!) The presentation also introduced a new m.powerment by Mark launch, a pretty Have A Heart bracelet — available here for $12. One-hundred percent of the net proceeds are funneled into their fund to help spread awareness and eradicate dating abuse and partner violence. So check it out. [Meet Mark] Keep reading »

You Are Eating A Freakish Amount Of Lip Gloss, Says Dr. Oz

Here’s a scary clip for lip gloss lovers: Oprah‘s pal Dr. Mehmet Oz freaks out some poor lady by showing her a tub filled with seven pounds of petroleum jelly, the amount a woman licks off her lips in a decade. The new quote of the day is: “[Lip gloss] makes you shiny — but it’s dangerous!” Keep reading »

Can This Underwear Get Rid Of Cellulite?

Everyone hates cellulite, which explains why the market for products that claim to rid your body of those unsightly spots is so saturated. But the sad truth is that while you can buy a million creams, it’s really exercise and genetics that determine just how affected you’ll be. The latest company to create an anti-cellulite product is Advantage Organic, which boasts a pair of undergarments made of neem oil, basil leaves, and pure silver. Neem is used in Indian skincare products to ease irritations, and claims to reduce cellulite on your body. So far, the design comes in a t-shirt and shorts, but the company is working on a line of lingerie for the Western world. Just how thongs will change the appearance of your thighs, though, is beyond me. [Telegraph] Keep reading »
