Beauty Buzz: Cool Peel-Off Lip Stain That Lasts 10 Hours!

We like when beauty products make it EASY for the lazy me and invent bizarre makeup items that really work.

Take They have this AMAZING PEEL-OFF Lip Stain that takes just 10 minutes on, and when you PEEL it AWAY.....You're left with lips wearing a soft popsicle pop of color.

 And the COCOON Lip Stain LASTS for 10 hours...... not bad for a $22 lip product.

We LOVE the pretty popsicle shades:

How the heck does this peel-off lip stain work?

Beauty science. Best of all----Cocoon Lip Stain is kiss-proof + water-proof.

This is how you put it on, says Cailyn Cosmetics:

1. Apply Cocoon Lip Stain with a small lip brush making sure the product is evenly distributed.
2. Wait 10 minutes, or until dry, for Cocoon Lip Stain to set.
3. Starting on the corner of the lip, slowly peel mask.

Sounds like a great product to try!

Magical New Top Coat: The ESSIE Gel-Setter

My nails need help, ASAP!

And maybe I've found a great helper. If this works, then for 10 bucks, it's WORTH it.

I'm talking about this:

This is NEW from ESSIE, the nail experts.

It's called the GEL SETTER at Kohl's.

Just brush it OVER your FAVE manicure and watch the high GLOSS take over.

It creates a nice gel-like shield for days

NO lamp time. NO gel curing time.

And the public response has been GOOD.

I LOVE a gel manicure, but HATE spending $$$ on my nails, so hoping that a bottle of Gel-Setter can mimic the thick high gloss of a gel manicure.

Our 3 Favorite Drugstore Mascaras

Yes, I LIKE drugstore beauty products, and so do many beauty YouTube stars.

Today, I'm talking MASCARA, one of my must-have makeup items.

ZERO mascara means an off-day for Beauty Tip Today.

I've mentioned these mascara winners before, but I looked at my mascara stash today, and these 3 are ALWAYS with me.

I ADORE big a** lashes, LOL.

Here we go. You CANNOT fail with a double-blend of these.

In other words, MIX + MATCH 2 of them for the longest, fullest lashes, EVER.

1. L'Oreal Telescopic Mascara (Carbon Black, at ULTA, $9.99)

And WORTH every penny.

This formula creates LONG, THIN, DOLL Lashes.

2. Maybelline Great Lash Curved Brush (Blackest Black, at ULTA, $5.99). The CLASSIC, never fail mascara for thick, dewy lashes.

3. L'Oreal  Voluminous Volume Building Curved Brush Mascara (Black, at ULTA, $8.49).

This STUFF rocks! FULL, luscious lashes. Almost look FAUX.

All 3 = excellent mascara.
I like mixing Telescopic with either Great Lash or Voluminous. Try it!

The Power And Beauty Of Makeup----OMG, Kelly Ripa!

Here is an excellent example of a famous, pretty woman named Kelly Ripa. Women ADORE her and admire her fitness discipline.

We all know her from her former days on the iconic soap "All My Children," and especially on "LIVE with Kelly."

PHOTO #1 shows the petite 45-year-old star with wet hair pulled back, on her way to the TV studio Thursday morning to prepare for her show.

Is Kelly attractive WITHOUT the power + magic of makeup?

Yes, BUT.........

Now here's Kelly WITH makeup artfully applied + hair done.

You decide, which Kelly is more appealing?

We rest our case.

To see how amazing Kelly Ripa looked on Thursday's show, check her out here on video as she interviews Beth Behrs.

Maybelline Introduces Spider Lashes Mascara Because Trend Is HOT

Maybe you're into the HOT beauty trend of the moment---Spider lashes!!!

It's been a look on the runways---Jason Wu sent his flock of models to Fashion Week last October showing off the beauty trend, and he used the drugstore brand that just hit shelves for everyone else in April:

Maybelline The Colossal Spider Effect Mascara ($7, at ULTA).

It's a SEXY look, but best achieved by a professional makeup artist.

Kim Kardashian has recently been playing around with this beauty trend, and we all know she ALWAYS has a pro doing her entire look.

KK ALWAYS rocks the most spectacular eye makeup, and we think her spider lashes are gorgeous fauxs.

Do you like SPIDER lashes.......And will you try on the HOT beauty trend?

Asian Massage With Ceramic Spoon Creates Firmer, Slimmer Face?

There are so-ooooo many beauty treatments out there. Some are old, maybe even ancient and some are new. Whether most of them really work, is another thing.

We are fascinated by YouTube's many beauty gurus who teach + inspire many of us to be a more attractive + healthier you.

Today, we came across the YouTube sensation, Wengie, a famous Chinese beauty blogger from Australia. And Wengie was demonstrating a popular beauty ritual that many Asian women perform weekly to force their faces into the Asian ideal of the V-shape + slimmer jaw.

This is done WITHOUT plastic surgery or dermatological enhancement. All you need is an Asian ceramic spoon + some facial oil or gel + 10 minutes of time.

All the action is done with a FIRM upwards motion. Asian women believe this facial massage is effective at DRAINING toxins and fluid retention from the face.

Here's Wengie demonstrating the facial massage.

Wengie's YouTube video does an EXCELLENT job at explaining  each step.

Now, the million dollar question........

Does facial massage with an Asian ceramic spoon really slim and firm the face?

Hmmm. Probably NOT. But then again, we have NOT tried the popular Asian treatment yet.

Maybe some of you do this beauty ritual. And if so, we would like to know if it's helped or not helped you.

If something as cheap + simple as a ceramic spoon can FIRM the face, then count us in.

Just sayin.....
