The gals at Glamour magazine have been raving about this clever, new breast lift-in-a-box, so we just had to investigate further.
At $17 a box, you can defy gravity, by lifting your sagging breasts up to 2 inches!! OMG!
The company that makes this instant breast lift is Purestylegirlfriends.com. And the tape is sold for sizes A-D.
And it's quick and easy to use, as the girls explain at http://www.purestylegirlfriends.com/:
Simply place the Pick-Me-Up tape over your breast and pull up. Voilá! The best part? The area that goes over your nipple is non-adhesive so it doesn't hurt when you take it off. The adhesive strips are sweat-proof and waterproof, which means staying radiant on the red carpet, and sassy, yet supported on the dance floor."
This is what you get in each box of Pick-Me-Ups:
Breast lift tape
Hypoallergenic, surgical-grade tape
Lays flat under your clothing
Fits A - D cups
Perfect for strapless, backless and halter styles
Waterproof and sweatproof
3 pairs in each box
The Pure Style Girlfriends company sells all kinds of breast beauty products like nipple concealers, double-sided fashion tape, bra inserts, and other clever bosom solutions.
The gals at Glamour suggest that the Pick-Me-Ups are wonderful. And one fashion assistant raved,"It offers better support than my strapless bra."

Brooke comes across as a sincere human being. And even sun care giant, Coppertone, decided that Brooke Shields would bring her own brand of integrity to the company's new NutraShield, a sunscreen containing antioxidants that promote natural skin repair.
Brooke Shields told People magazine at an LA launch for Coppertone's NutraShield, that she recently experienced a skin cancer wake-up call.
"I had a spot on my face. The doctor scraped it, and it turned out to be precancerous," Brooke Shields tells People. "I was scared."
Like many of us, Brooke took in the rays as a youth, slathering on the stuff we all used to baste ourselves with.
"Baby oil and tinfoil and lemon in your hair," she says "All my girlfriends and I would go up on the roof in New York; we didn't have to be at the beach."
And she told People, that she stopped actively tanning 10 years ago. And now she puts on the sunscreen when she heads outdoors, and is especially concerned for her two fair-skinned daughters.
That is why Brooke Shields is proud to be the face of Coppertone's new NutraShield.
The line includes an SPF 70+ Faces lotion ($10.99), as well as SPF70+ and SPF 30 lotions for the body. The product line is available online and at mass retailers across the country.
What's so great about this sunscreen?
Patricia Agin at the Coppertone Solar Research Center explains:
"Our legacy of continuous innovation led to the development of COPPERTONE NutraShield and its Dual Defense technology, providing women an affordable skin-care option that delivers a high level of sun protection as well as antioxidants to help nourish skin."

Are you wearing the perfect foundation shade for your skin tone?
We will be honest here. Unless you have a professional makeup artist at your side, picking the right foundation shade is very difficult. And if you have a yellow-based complexion, it's even tougher, because there aren't too many yellow-based foundations being offered these days.
Thank goodness for Sacha Cosmetics. The company has been chosen in the past, as the 'official cosmetics for the Miss Universe and Miss USA Pageants'. And those beautiful participants always look so gorgeous, their skin and makeup flawless.
So what does yellow-based foundation have to do with a woman's makeup? Plenty, if you realize that the majority of us do have yellow in our complexions. According to the Sacha Cosmetics website:
"Most Caucasian and all Asian, African and Latin women do have yellow skin undertones."
And the website offers a wide variety of makeup, including lip glosses and eye shadows. The Sacha Cosmetics people also give you valuable advice when it comes to choosing the perfect foundation:
"Apply foundation evenly along the jaw line and blend. The foundation should perfectly match the color of your neck without any silica residue. Testing our Sacha foundation on the back of the palm is also a quick substitute, though not as accurate as the jaw line test!"

We'd all be fools if we said we didn't want at least plumper lips than we have at the moment. And yet, how do we achieve them without the sharp pain from a collagen-filled needle?
Hmmm. That's the question: Is there a way to achieve bigger, fuller lips the natural way?
The makers of Cushy Lips, say, yes, you can!!
We haven't tried the product yet, but we are intrigued. The price isn't that bad, either, $19.95 for a full month's supply. Plus there is a 100% money back guarantee.
If you've tried lip plumpers, there are probably a gazillion on the market and many are highly priced. Some work well. Others do not and merely sting your lips with some bizarre synthetic formula. Others dry out your lips making them feel very uncomfortable.
What's so special about Cushy Lips?
According to the information we found, the product is made with natural ingredients. And what you get is a lip plumper and lip gloss-all-in-one.The formula is safe and easily absorbable. It includes macadamia oil, castor oil, menthol, and vitamin E. Cushy Lips is a product that moisturizes and leaves lips very soft.
We learned more from writer Blake Allen
"CushyLips will give both an immediate and lasting plumping effect to the lips. Women should use this lip plumper twice a day for maximum results, applying the lip-plumper first and then the lip gloss for added moisture and color. Within several weeks, they usually see an average increase of 1-3 mm to their lips. Another benefit to using CushyLips is that the plumper's increase of blood flow causes lips to appear pinker. With continued use, lips may appear so pink that women decide to discard their lipsticks."
We're not promising you huge lips, and we can't exactly give you 100% Angelina Jolie lips, but the product appears to give you fuller lips in a natural way. So it seems like a simpler, safer way to achieve a sexier set of lips.
