Jessica Simpson’s “Price Of Beauty” Could Now Be A Makeover Show

Breaking news: something disappointing is getting even more disappointing. We’ve always been unimpressed with Jessica Simpson‘s show, “The Price of Beauty,” in which she and her best friends, Ken Paves and Cacee Cobb, travel around the world to discover what “beauty” means in other cultures.

But scratch that idea. Now it could become a makeover show. Keep reading »

Don’t Skimp On Those Beauty Treatments

Everyone loves a great deal: a pair of shoes half off, a sample sale, or accessories that are buy one, get one free. But here’s a great reason why beauty shouldn’t always be about the price — or the deal. Jane Ubell-Meyer received what should have been a normal gel manicure, but after her experience with an inexperienced technician, she’s had to visit orthopedists, dermatologists, and chiropractors due to major pain through her thumb. It seems during her beauty treatment, the manicurist working on her nails slipped and cut Jane’s finger, then exposed the inside of her skin to chemicals, which later affected her nerves. Though everyone always thinks these situations can never happen to them, this is certainly a wake-up call to realize that when it comes to beauty and your own body, skimping to save a few dollars isn’t the answer. If you’re planning to get a gel manicure, watch out for these signs and make sure your technician is fully educated on how to perform the treatment … Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Make Up Forever HD Concealer

In our ongoing efforts to find the ideal concealer for these hot months, we gave Make Up Forever’s HD concealer wand a try. We were impressed by the smooth feel, oil-free aspect and the fact that it left us neither dry nor slippery. Our only gripe with the stuff is that you have to be very careful about the quantity you use because if you go a little bit overboard, you’ll start looking chalky. A built-in incentive not to overdo it with the makeup may not be such a bad thing, though. [$28, Make Up Forever, Sephora] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Tarte Lip Stain

At first swipe, we had high hopes for Tarte’s Natural Lip Stain. Lust, the color we tested, had an appropriately sultry name and glided on with a practiced sort of ease, moisturizing as it went. Unfortunately, the honeymoon period soon disappeared and we were left with nothing but faint vestiges of the relationship we’d begun a mere hour before. If you want really expensive pigmented Chapstick, this is the product for you, but don’t get into the relationship looking for it to last. [$24, Tarte, Sephora] Keep reading »

We fully advocate using sunscreen on a daily basis, but unfortunately, sometimes those rays get the best of us and turn delicate skin bright red. In an effort to save our skin from the terrible pain that sunburn causes, here are a few tips on how to deal with the blistering pain, before and after the burn takes hold. Keep reading »

Shave Your Legs Wrong, Kill Your Boyfriend

Copyranter points us to this darkly humorous commercial out of Russia for the Venus Gillette razor for women. It’s a tad difficult to decipher, but it seems the young lady chose to use a razor that didn’t shave close enough, and when her boyfriend attempts to remove her stockings … Well, suffice to say, he doesn’t get a happy ending. So, in case any of you ladies out there don’t take your personal grooming seriously enough, know that if you don’t use the Venus Gillette, you may be responsible for the death of a loved one. Or, you know, you might just have some stubble. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
