Beauty Test Drive: Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

We feel sad, hurt, angry and confused when the insult to the injury of a poor night’s sleep includes dark circles and puffy eyes. Is there no justice in this world? Luckily, Origins feels our pain, and with faking a well-rested look in mind, they created a brand-new eye cream designed to lend you the illusion of a person who got eight hours of sleep. I’ve been trying this product since the beginning of Fashion Week, which requires lots of running around on little zzz’s. Of all the eye salves I’ve tried, I’m really impressed with how quickly and efficiently GinZing works. Touted as a “shot of espresso for tired eyes,” it shapes up the eye area in a few different ways: Ginseng and caffeine act as instantly toning eye openers; magnolia helps reduce dark circles, even though some derms claim nothing really works on the latter; and brightening optics, silica and mica, superficially illuminate the area overall. (Word to the wise: Use sparingly and sensitive-skin types should test first, as the ingredients are no joke. I had a slight skin reaction but it cleared right up when I stopped slathering it on like a junkie.) Anyway, I’m so sleepy some mornings I don’t really care how it works just that it does, and after the past few weeks I’ve spent with this secret weapon, well, I can say we’re still in our honeymoon phase.

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Should You Dump A Woman If She Won’t Give Head?

This morning we asked if you should dump a guy if he won’t give you oral sex. So far, the majority of you — nearly 50 percent — have said, “Yes. If he’s a selfish lover, he’ll be selfish in other ways too. See ya!” A little over 36 percent of you are willing to tolerate it, so long as he doesn’t expect you to go down on him, while a mere 16.5 percent believe that lack of oral sex would be a ridiculous reason to dump someone. But because we like to play fair, we decided to ask the same question of the guys on our IM. Do they think you should dump a woman if she won’t give blow jobs? Their answers, after the jump.

Why I’m Secretly Excited For “Secret Girlfriend”


www.comedycentral.com


What happens when some cads cruise for boobs and document their shenanigans YouTube-style? A ridiculous new Comedy Central series called “Secret Girlfriend.” The show is shot in a first-person format, making the viewer the central character in the lives of a 20-something single guy, his two besties/roommates and the two women in his life he’s trying to keep a secret from each other—psycho ex, Mandy, and new girlfriend, Jessica. I know I should be offended by the idiotic and childish pursuit of female tail, but for some reason all I can do is laugh my ass off at these guys. The fact that these clueless idiots actually think they can get laid is hilarious enough to diffuse their offensive antics. Check out the trailer—I’ll definitely be watching the premiere tomorrow night at 10:30 p.m. My fave one-liner? “I’m telling you … my penis looks really weird,” used as a pick-up line. Amazing!

How Do Grown Women Make Friends?

I finally ended a friendship I’d had for about 13 years. The woman and I had gotten to a point where we knew very little about each other’s lives because she constantly canceled plans and wouldn’t return phone calls, and I decided I didn’t care to make an effort without some reciprocity. Basically, we had outgrown each other. This means, I’m down to about three girlfriends. One lives in the south. Another lives about two hours away by public transportation and rarely wants to meet somewhere in the middle. And the third is finding herself now that she’s come out. I’m faced with the dilemma of making new girlfriends and the outlook ain’t pretty. Keep reading »
