New Lip Injectable For Plumper Pucker: Restylane Silk Launches This Month

Big lips like big booties remain major, HOT trends for 2015.

Those who get fuller lips by way of injections, will tell you that the treatment can be painful + uncomfortable. Let's face it....The lips are one of the MOST sensitive areas of the body.

But here's some great BEAUTY news for 2015....There's a new injectable for lips launching this month called Restylane Silk, and it promises to be delivered in a kinder, more gentler needle for creating the ultimate duck lips.

Restylane Silk is wonderful because of basically 2 reasons:

1. It's made of a unique gel formula--smaller-smoother particles.
2. An ultra-fine needle is used to obtain more natural + precise results.

Restylane Silk has been described as a softer Restylane or hyaluronic acid filler. FDA-approval came last June, and the new injectable launches this month.
And doctors say that one syringe of Restylane Silk is plenty for the entire procedure.

Clinical studies show:
  • 59% of patients treated with Restylane Silk maintained lip fullness six months after treatment.

Nicole Kidman Rocks Long, Blonde, Side-Parted Bob at Berlin Film Festival

Just a few days ago, actress Nicole Kidman showed off super long, pin-straight locks, most likely from hair extensions.

But today, the Oscar winner is rockin' a long, blonde, side-parted bob, and hit the red carpet at the Berlin Film Festival in her brand new, sleek do.

Nicole is busy promoting her new film, "Queen of the Desert.".

The deep side part looks lovely on Nicole, but the pin-straight hair must be a challenge for the Aussie cutie, because she has naturally curly tresses.

E! news personality Giuliana Rancic has been wearing the long, blonde, side-parted bob for several months now, ahead of the trend.

To keep those super sleek locks heathy, try a smooth serum, like this one from Aveda, the 'smooth infusion™' style-prep smoother™ ($24, at Nordstrom's).

Is New 2015 S.I. Swimsuit Cover Showing Way Too Much Or Have We All Become Naked-De-Sensitized?!

For some strange reason, we were MORE alarmed by Hannah Davis' sexy cover for Sports Illustrated's new 2015 swimsuit issue, than Kim Kardashian's recent Paper Magazine full frontal lay-out and naked butt cover. See the KK photo reveal here.


We're not sure.

We have seen Kim Kardashian take so many selfies and appear in tons of super sexy, almost nude pics, that we got used to seeing Kim unclothed. NOT so shocking anymore. It appears as though we have become a naked-de-sensitized society, for lack of a better phrase.

And KK is NOT alone. More + more celebs are posing nearly naked, and it seems as if the envelope has been pushed to the brink.

As far as S.I.'s gorgeous Hannah Davis's major bikini plunge, well, er, it looks almost vulgar. Or are we alone in that thought?

We can clearly see that Hannah gets a Brazlian wax. Isn't this TMI or too much information?

We will leave it at that......

In case you want to try a Brazilian bikini wax, there are D.I.Y. kits. Here's one by Extra Strength Brazilian Bikini Waxing & Shaping Kit ($10.99).

We ALL know it's NEVER wise to wear mascara +  other makeup to bed, because you wake up with crumpy, dry lashes.

Or maybe you've been at the office since 7 AM, and you've got a public engagement to go to straight from work, but your lashes look worn out + dry. do we revive mascara successfully?!

It's a COOL, new beauty product in 2015. It's a serum, actually. And it cleans up dry, brittle, tired lashes. It bathes them, so to speak, so you can then re-apply your regular mascara OVER the UD serum for perfectly smooth, clean, healthy lashes Yay!

Mascara Resurrection says it BEST---Reboot, Refresh, Renew.

So what's it all about?

Here's how UD describes their 2015 breakthrough beauty product:

Our lightweight, oil-free formula contains a special blend of ingredients to moisturize lashes while helping with mascara wear. Copper powder and panthenol condition and bind moisture to the hair shaft, improving lash health while giving your mascara new life.

Loving Sarah Hyland's Super Long Blonde Extensions + Flawless Makeup

Although she is naturally a brunette, we think "Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland looks even better as a blonde. Take a look at her honey blonde highlights + super long extensions!

The petite, 24-year-old actress has been wearing the new look since last November, and we saw her again recently and we think she looks FAB!

Plus, the young star's makeup ALWAYS appears flawless. Of course she has great big eyes + full brows that  only add to her cuteness.

If you love Sarah's honey blonde highlights, you can COPY the look by picking up a DIY kit, like this one from Garnier Nutrisse ($5.95).

Gisele's SuperBowl-SuperModel $128 Flannel Shirt Style: All SOLD OUT Now!

We LOVE model Gisele Bundchen's laid-back Superbowl 49 style from last night's Patriots victory. Her sexy, Pats QB husband Tom Brady, now adds 4 SuperBowl rings to his growing collection, in the thrilling PATs win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Gisele was dressed down in navy tee, skinny jeans, black, low-heeled riding boots and FAB red, white + blue, $128 Rails Kendra Plaid shirt. And let's not forget---the black leather jacket tied around her small, supermodel waist.

By the way, the cute shirt is SOLD OUT just about everywhere. However--there is one in size small selling on EBAY at the moment for $127.50. OMG!

No surprise. People like to copy famous, rich celebs. And why not?

This is a great, easy-to-copy look for a sporting event.

Of course, you DON'T have to have the same RAILS flannel shirt. You could copy the look for a lot less, and still look great!

Come Out Of Your Cocoon: L'Oreal Paris' New Voluminous Butterfly Intenza!

To achieve BIG doe eyes, you need great black liquid liner, of course, an amazing mascara and oh yeah....a super effective mascara brush/wand.

Check out L'Oreal Paris' new Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Blackest Black Mascara ($8.99, at ULTA).

This cool mascara has been out on the market for about a month now. We adore it because of the well-loved Voluminous formula and this unique, double-wing brush/wand.


Because the brush s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s lashes outward. "The unique Cocoon Fibers create silky delicate lashes that look spectacular," according to the folks at L'Oreal Paris.

GMA anchor Amy Robach has mentioned often that L'Oreal Voluminous is her FAVE mascara. We hope she tries this NEW Voluminous Butterfly Intenza!

We LOVE trying new drugstore mascaras, because they are cheaper than the fancy, high-ends, plus do the job nicely.

Look what Amy says about the Voluminous formula that she takes everywhere, even on the plane:

..."But not just any mascara, this tube is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. It lasts and looks great all day in all weather and my eyelashes have never looked fuller.

I've tried the more expensive department store varieties, and they don't even come close."

Get out of your cocoon this 2015, ladies! Try new beauty products, and see if they make a difference.
