There are a few occasions, I suppose, when I might be inclined to wear a “handsome guy mask”: 1.) when I just want to run errands and don’t want to be tailed by the paparazzi; 2) when walking my dog down an ex’s street; and 3) when I want to know what it’s like having women throw themselves at me because I am just that attractive. Unfortunately for the latter, I’d probably go with some other company’s “handsome guy mask,” because SPFX’s version is scaring the crap out of me. [The Gloss

We’ve seen something like these kooky masks before. Designer Ilya Fleet created a similar series for sex boutique Coco de Mer. But shoe designer Minna Parikka‘s line of masks is a little less fetishistic, and they’re made out of deconstructed and repurposed shoes. While Parikka typically designs pretty-in-pink, retro-style footwear, these colorful, playful masks are equal parts lucha libre and sex kitten. What do you think: totally insane or Halloween potential? [Style Bubble]

If you want a thinner face or you are into Darth Vader chic, then I have the product for you. After mulling over the absurdity that is the Japanese Face Slimmer I understand the beauty process as follows: the mask smushes your face to slim it down. First, it melts the fat off your face by massaging your facial dermis—I have always thought there was a fine line between massaging and mauling. Then, the sweat produced from the poorly-ventilated mask combined with the sweat from your chubby cheeks acts as a sauna.
If you have the self-confidence to actually wear this face mask, then kudos to you. For the rest of us who lack egos of steel, a good (or even mediocre) bronzer can fake high cheekbones without the risk of permanently scarring your cat/boyfriend/neighbors, etc. [$32, Japanese Face Slimmer, Amazon] Keep reading »
