Berry Stained Lips

After 10 years the wait is finally over, Tarte Natural Lip Stain has developed a lip stain that is clinically proven to increase lips’ moisture content by 6000% with its LipSurgence™ Technology. These much-anticipated natural lip stains are an extension to the best-selling and award-winning cheek stains. Just like the iconic cheek stains, each emotive, peppermint-infused shade smoothly glides on lips for a natural flush that will stay all day. So say goodbye to reapplying your lip color throughout the day and say hello to a gorgeous pop of color and hydration that lasts.

Buy It: Sephora
Cost: $24.00

Other Details: The old meets the new with the infusion of our high-performance natural LipSurgence™ technology which is clinically proven to increase moisture content by an astonishing 6000%. This proprietary blend effectively increases skin’s water content for a ‘plumped up’ appearance leaving lips defined, smoothed, and hydrated. The result is naturally fuller, healthier lips without any irritation or stinging. Like the cheek stains, each shade of these natural lip stains will leave a natural hint of tint that will last throughout the day. These shades are great to wear alone or pair with your favorite tarte lipgloss. This product is free from gluten, animal testing, formaldehyde donors, oil, talc, MEA/ DEA/ TEA.

Fondue for You

In Fashion on March 19, 2010 at 1:54 pm

If you are a chocolate fan then this is the mug for you. Unlike other mugs this one isn’t for boring beverages. Inside this mug resides a pool of warm molten chocolate, just waiting for you to dip and coat some mouth watering morsel.

Fondues are always great fun, and chocolate fondues add another level of yummy to the whole experience. Each Fondue mug is suitable for use by two people. Dipping various pieces of fruit or marshmallows and other sweet treats into molten chocolate is great for providing a romantic and intimate end to an evening. Alternatively get more than one and it is also a great dessert idea for a dinner party.

These porcelain mug fondue sets are easy to use, simply light the provided tealight and place in the alcove at the bottom of the mug. Place some chocolate in the top of the mug and wait for it to melt. If you can resist nibbling while you wait patiently, you can then dip all manner of things into the melted chocolate. YUM!

Oh, and it’s dishwasher and microwave safe. That means heat, eat, done! YAY!

Spanx Your Man

In Fashion on March 18, 2010 at 3:46 pm

It’s true that men can be just as self-conscious about their bodies as women can, but this news seems to walk on the absurd side somehow: Starting next month, London department store Selfridges will start selling Man Spanx, control-top tops for men—shirts that offer not just sucking-in, but sculpting-up. I had to go check out the Spanx web site, and sure enough, the hilarity ensued. I mean, do the models in this photo look like they need to be reshaped?

In all fairness, everyone should have the right to a toned tummy and thus, men deserve Spanx too.

Spanx your man!

Wrap Your Head Around It

In Accessories on March 16, 2010 at 8:32 am

Envision yourself in a red convertible (top down) cruising the California coast with big Jackie-O sunglasses on and the sun smiling down on you. Now envision your hair wrapped precariously underneath a silky, chic head wrap…looking mysterious and perfectly coiffed. This mental image makes me wish that I grew up in the romantic 60’s where women protected their hair dos while cruising around town in their fab sports cars. Enter Anthropologie and their fantastic Sunday Drive Head Wrap. This swath of navy and brown printed silk is lent just a bit of structure by a hidden grosgrain band around the crown. Tie it at your nape and head off with the top down. Loves.
