Um, No: Strap-On Bangs

This is the least bangin’ strap-on we’ve ever seen. Apparently, there are people out there who want bangs so badly, they’ll don a headband with artificial hair attached to it. We understand the desire to switch up your hairstyle without having to wait months for it to grow out, but faking a fringe like this is guaranteed to look, well, fake.

More Ridiculous Than The Vampire Facial—Wrinkle-Reducing Goggles

Beer goggles: Make ugly people look prettier.

Japanese wrinkle goggles: Make ugly people look uglier, normal people look uglier.

The last completely insane anti-aging treatment we heard about was the vampire facelift, a creepy process involving facial blood injections, but now these “wrinkle goggles” make just about any beauty treatment seem legit in comparison. Keep reading »

Lanvin’s “Marry Me!” Fragrance Skips Subtle Marketing Tactics

You can thank the “Mad Men” episode about Pond’s Cold Cream for reminding us of an era when advertising appealed directly to a stereotyped female psyche. As Freddy says about Pond’s: “If young girls started using it, maybe they’d find a husband and they wouldn’t be so angry … if you use Pond’s you’ll get married.” We’re thinking the folks at Lanvin drew inspiration from Sterling Cooper Draper Price, as their new fragrance “Marry Me!” is anything but subtle, cutting right to the chase with its white dress-clad model and company. Ladies, buy this perfume, and your guy will propose. Gag. [Fragrantica] Keep reading »

Tweezing Never Looked So Fabulous

Tweezing is way too painful to be glamorous or pampering. But if you add a little Betsey Johnson to the experience, you can at least feel fabulous while you pluck. Betsey has teamed up with Tweezerman to create the Betsey Johnson Slant Tweezer Collection. Choose from three options: black with a “Marilyn” face, neon pink with white skulls, or white with pink rosebuds. Today is the day to start plucking in style.

Genius: The Perfumed Court Offers Expensive Scents In Little Doses

One of life’s little pleasures: spritzing yourself with your perfume, the one that you’ve really adopted as your smell. The problem with this is that perfumes are generally expensive (unless you somehow enjoy dousing yourself in Eau de Britney each day). After wearing the relatively affordable Ralph by Ralph Lauren scent since my teenage years, I recently came across a fragrance I absolutely fell in love with—Byredo’s “Blanche.” But at $200 a bottle, it’s not something I’m going to drop down for. So instead, I’ve savored my itty bitty samples and feared the day of the last drop. My prayers, however, have been answered: The Perfumed Court is a service that decants scents and repackages them into 1-15 ml spray bottles and roll-ons. You’ll find top brands like Pucci, Chanel, and Jo Malone, along with lower-level names like Fresh or even … Paris Hilton. In case you just want to give that a try.

Kiehl’s Mini-Products A La Carte

Kiehl’s addicts a) don’t travel without their Kiehl’s, and b) never want to waste a drop of it. We often find that while those generic mini-containers you can get to transfer shampoo into are a good idea, we end up wasting the product in the process (it spills over the sides and there’s residue left in the bottle). That’s why we figure that stocking up on Kiehl’s mini-sized goods is actually more resourceful in the long run. Rejoice! You can get all your favorite of the brand’s basics—Amino Acid Shampoo, Creme de Corps, Olive Fruit Oil Nourishing Conditioner—in perfectly portioned 2.5 oz. bottles or tubes.
