We’ve talked about the alleged horrors of the eyelash growing formula Latisse
gone wrong before, but this video from Consumer Reports tells us a few more scary things about the beauty product. You shouldn’t be easily fooled by the FDA-approved label. The reason Latisse has FDA approval is that it was previously a medication used to treat glaucoma
. And while we knew that some Latisse users had complained about weird pigmentation going on, Consumer Reports confirms that the treatment can turn blue or green eyes permanently to brown, and that users have complained about dyed eyelids—on both the top and bottom—which results in a “raccoon look.” Watch and hear it for yourself.

“Project Runway” returned this week with a typical cast of over-dramatic characters trotting pretty little dresses (and some hot messes) down the runway. We like sweet frocks as much as the next girl, but there are a few challenges we’d much rather see this season on “PR.” Personally, I’m rooting for a challenge that involves dresses made of pastries and culminates in an eating contest for the models where the first girl to finish eating her garment without passing out wins. For those of you who don’t quite see the connection between fashion shows and eating contests, more possibilities after the jump. Keep reading »
Beyond adding extensions or using complicated styling tricks, there isn’t a whole lot you can do to make your hair thicker than it actually is. But leave it to scientists to figure out how to dupe everyone into thinking Mother Nature blessed you with voluminous strands. Living Proof’s smarty-pants team developed a new material that gives hair tons of oomph without making it brittle the way hairspray does. Those lifeless locks should be extinct in no time.

It’s around this time of year that things just start to feel heavy. No one wants to go out. The social season hits a lull. The novelty of snow has gone from being charming to irritating. Your flights are delayed. Your skin is dry. Your pipes are frozen. Life. Sucks. And if you tell me to go to Sharper Image to get myself a light therapy box, I will slap you.
We know there’s not a lot to do to get around winter (save for moving to a tropical climate) and most of the ideas people start throwing around this time of year is stuff you know you won’t do or something so corny (like putting up a picture of a beach in your cubicle), it wouldn’t even fool a 5-year-old. So here are some of our slightly less conventional ideas to get out of that seasonal funk. Share your own in the comments below. Keep reading »
There’s something a little special about this new year. It’s not only a fresh start, but it’s also a brand-new decade. Many people are taking the opportunity to re-evaluate their lives, jobs, and current situations. Alicia Kan was one of the brave souls who quit her job in order to pursue her passions — and now her closet is taking a hit. Over the years, she’s accumulated designer pieces like Hermès scarves and Donna Karan dresses, but now it’s all for sale, as her dream for the years to come includes dressing “like Blondie in the ’80s.” Random? Yes, but there’s an interesting idea to take from her initiative. With the new decade, it’s time to release the ties that bind us to the past, and one way to do that is a closet purge.

Among the plethora of relationship self help books that line an entire shelf of my best friend’s apartment, sits The Manual ($10.04 at Amazon). After scanning the table of contents and sifting through the pages, I came across one piece of advice that I had to take a second look at: Dress to men’s fantasies, and do it subtly. Could this be the reason I was still single? Because I didn’t look like a naughty librarian or a French maid when I went out? I decided to put this hypothesis to the test. I spent five nights in adult dress-up, playing to every guy’s porn-worthy pipe dreams. Keep reading »
