Y- Facelift Is Quick + Effective For Youthful Contours In 2015

Lately, the entire cosmetic enhancement world appears to be ALL about the injections. With a few stings of  a needlelost volume can be restored, cheekbones curved + enlarged, wrinkles + folds smoothed away, etc.

That's why folks are talking about the Y-Lift facelift, a more sophisticated filler session.

We knew immediately what this beauty treatment was ALL about.

Consider the letter "Y.".Look at the shape of the letter itself---width at top, narrowness at bottom.
And that is EXACTLY how plastic surgeons define the perfect, youthful face: 

The widest portion of the face should begin at the forehead and/or cheekbones heading down to the narrowest part of the face, which should ideally end with the chin.

And what the Y-Lift aims to do, is just that---give the patient more youthful facial contours WITHOUT the surgery + major down-time.

We guess this could be called the minimally invasive facelift of 2015.

So the procedure still consists of facial filler, but it's done in a more artfully + precise manner, if we are to believe all the beauty hype.

We learned more about it here at the website.

The Y LIFT® procedure is performed using a specialized titanium instrument which is inserted beneath the skin and then maneuvered throughout designated parts of the facial region to instantly lift and contour the muscles, fascia and fat underlying the skin. Once lifted, hyaluronic acid, a substance that is naturally present in the skin is used to hold the newly elevated position in place at which point the titanium tube is removed from the treatment site. The rejuvenated face is then “sculpted” to accent and highlight each individual’s beauty.

No one enjoys going UNDER the knife for ANY type of surgery, especially when it comes to plastic surgery.

At least the Y-Lift offers an alternative with nice-looking results WITHOUT the anesthesia, incisions + stitches.

The cost of a Y-Lift varies from location to location but  generally runs between $3,000 and $7,000. this newest beauty procedure for 2015 worth the money spent?

Another New Pore Shrinker For A Smoother, Softer Complexion

Yes, like many of you, we are PORE-obsessed.

We have an oily complexion and clear skin, but DNA has reminded us that we also have large pores around our nose, and such.

Retin-A, glycolic acid, Vitamin C, and other strongexcellent skin care treatments like these can make a major difference over time.

Plus there are a number of over-the-counter skin care products designed to MINIMIZE large pores. And here is a new one:

L'Oreal Paris Texture Perfector Pore Vanisher ($19.99, at Target).

This silky, creamy stuff will work very quickly. In seconds, the pore vanisher will smooth out large pores, leaving a more flawless face with a better base for foundation after.

So, how does L'Oreal's Pore Vanisher help BLUR big, bad pores?

Read the back of the box:

We say this new pore shrinker is worth the $20 beauty investment.

We are well aware that you are stuck with large pores forever, but there are advanced products that minimize their appearance + texture, and this appears to be one of them.

Jennifer Aniston Goes Braless Again At SAGS: We Can't Stop Staring!

We all know that actress Jennifer Aniston has a super fit body, but lately on the red carpet, the blonde stunner is burning her bra, so to speak.

Jennifer Aniston has gone braless, and yeah, we can't stop staring...

Is it vulgar?

Is it just right?

Or somewhere in between?

Here is the "Cake"-nominated star at the SAG Awards last night in Hollywood, sans bra in a lovely, vintage Galliano gown, along with decolletage-teasing body chain. She lost out to Julianne Moore for BEST actress in a leading role.

Some folks feel that Jen's breasts are sagging at the SAGS, so to speak. But then again, maybe we are all just used to seeing breast implants that stand alone + higher by way of plastic surgery.

At least Jennifer's bosom appears natural and how REAL breasts hang from a woman's body. LOL

Who knows? Jennifer's breasts could be the work of a skilled surgeon who has made them appear as natural as breasts can get.

Anyway....Jennifer has chosen to put her bosom out there for the world to see, so it is NOT unusual for us to be talking about THEM.

If you would like to buy a body chain, as the trend is HOT, you can tuck the rest of the chain inside your outfit, as Jennifer has done here on 2 red carpets in a row.

We found this sexy body chain from NastyGal ($28).

Eva Mendes Maintains Signature Head Wrap Turban: Will You Put One On?

Eva Mendes is such a sexy woman. Maybe that is why the striking actress looks so gorg in a head wrap turban thing. And she wears them a lot.

Hey, let's face it. It's NOT an easy look to get right.

But there the new mom put a head wrap on just recently when she went out to dinner with main squeeze Ryan Gossling.

LOVE the leopard print dress, too.

Lately, we've been seeing tons of turban/ head wraps in stores. We're just not sure if many women are buying them, and actually putting one on.

In case you are game for a cool head wrap, check these out:

Forever 21 ($3.90)

WetSeal ($6.99)

Charlotte Russe ($5.99)

Kardashian Family Makeup Artist Joyce Bonelli's Tip For False Lashes

Platinum blonde Joyce Bonelli seems to be everywhere the Kardashians go. There she is in Paris with mama Kris Jenner this week.

If you don't know by now, Joyce Bonelli is the beloved makeup artist for the Kardashian family, and is usually spotted in the Kardashian entourage.

Joyce does a great job applying cosmetics to the K + J sisters. That's why we were happy to find a cool beauty tip for false lashes.

We found an old interview from 2011, where Joyce talks about the faux lashes she uses on Kim Kardashian by Ardell

The company offers tons of inexpensive, beautiful lashes.

Joyce gave out this interesting + smart tip:

Ardell Lashes: “A trick to do– and it’s really important to do this– is at the inside corners of the eye, cut the lash off in the direction of your own lashes, at an angle, to taper off the lash. That’s where people go wrong with false lashes.”

Hey, nice-looking lashes for $4, you can't beat it.

ULTA sells them, as do many beauty shops + drugstores.

JLo Copies Kim Kardashian Naughty Cleavage In Very Bare Down To There Black Dress

Let's be honest here....Kim Kardashian is QUEEN of the cleavage parade, but someone else is trying to steal KK's thunder, and that is none other than JLo, who has been showing off a lot of NAUGHTY cleavage these days.


Because Jennifer Lopez looks gorg at 45, and why not?

Rumor has it that the superstar recently got new breast implants.

Can't prove that, but Jennifer is looking bustier than she ever has. Either's all good...LOL

By the way, JLo debuted this Andrew Gn black dress last night on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live."

Kim K's black dress is by Balmain.

Now, take a look at JLo photpgraphed today sans makeup + all the glamour, walking around NYC.

Wow....what a difference a great makeup artist makes!

Yikes....well, we will admit that a decent foundation does a lot for the complexion---evening out skin tone, covering up blemishes, dark circles, protecting skin from the elements and making a nice canvas for blush, shadow, + rest of makeup.

Jennifer has revealed before as a spokesperson for L'Oreal Paris that she wears True Match foundation:

The Story Behind My Skin:
100% Puerto Rican
Jennifer Lopez, 100% True Mtach W6Sun Beige

L'Oreal's True Match foundation claims that after 7 years of research and working with 57 ethnic backgrounds, they've developed 33 foundation shades, including---your perfect match.

Check out True Match here at for $11.49.
