Have you seen or heard about LipFusion Plump + Replump Liquid Lipstick? Supposedly, it plumps and then re-plumps every time you lick your lips. My sister, Lauren, and I discovered this purported plumper a few weeks back and were less than impressed.
First, not one of the seven shades did we find at all appealing – and when it comes to lipsticks and glosses, we subscribe to the Tim Gunn “Make It Work” philosophy. The colors are much too opaque and creamy, and quite uninspired – if you ask me. Plus it burned like the dickens. Lauren and I found ourselves furiously licking our lips – not to re-activate the product, but to lessen the pain. Finally, we just wiped it off. It was a hot mess, literally.
And even if you’re a fan of maximum strengh lip plumpers, you’re guaranteed to feel a sting, alright..at the register. One tube costs $38!
If you’re looking for a new lip plumping product, I recommend that you try Lise Watier’s Plumpissimo. This gloss instantly plumps the lips thanks to its cutting edge formula. Dehydrated Hyaluronic Filling Spheres penetrate small vertical lines, instantly expanding upon contact with water naturally present in the skin, to make lips look fuller. The result is an shiny, plumped pout – with no pain!
It’s available in six shades (I’m a fan of Corail) and it’ll make you want to lick your lips – because it smells and taste like an orange Fruit Roll-up. Remember those? Mmmmmm.
And Plumpissimo won’t deflate your wallet. It will only set you back $20.
Carissa, writer and editor of Hooked On Beauty and professional makeup artist shares the following tip for your big day. This one is an “eye do”:
Andrea Modlash #53 is the one thing all my girls have in common. It seems to fit every eye shape and looks so natural even the grooms can’t tell.

People‘s 100 Most Beautiful People 2008 issue will be on newsstands starting Friday, May 2nd…but here’s a sneak peek at who the mag thinks got the pretty genes. Making this year’s list are (among others):
*Mary J. Blige
*Rumer Willis (huh?)
*Sarah Silverman (pretty? yes. most beautiful? idk.)
*Eva Longoria & Tony Parker (b/c it’s impossible to separate them.)
*Amanda Beard (uh, no.)
*Cast of Gossip Girl
*Zoe Saldana (I’ve loved her ever since Center Stage.)
*Jessica Alba & Cash Warren (surely, their baby will be beautiful.)
At the head of the pack is Kate Hudson , who graces the issue’s cover. Her best time for looking good, she tells the magazine, comes “at the end of the night, when everything’s soaked in and I’m still up. I like the leftover makeup in the morning. You’ve got to wash your face but there’s always the leftover eye makeup, I love that.”
What do you think about this list?
Do you have a Clarisonic Skin Care Brush purchased prior to July 2007?

I love nail polish. But to be honest – I don’t wear it all that often because I’m too lazy/busy to do them myself or to go get them done. So nine times out of ten, you’ll see me with bare nails.
Because I sport nekkid nails so often, one of my pet peeves is gunk under my fingernails. Anytime I’m playing the waiting game or trying to kill time, I find myself picking at my nails – making sure they’re not embarrassing me.
I used to think that orange sticks were great, but you really don’t know what you’re missing until you’ve tried the Sephora Brand Nail Scoop Cleaner. It’s got this miniature scoop on the one end that really gets under nails and removes every little bit of debris. Quickly and easily. It’s one of those beauty implements that makes you think, “What did I ever do without this in my life?”
