Definitely one of the hottest products on the market right now is Maybelline's Lash Stiletto Mascara & as the name describes, it gives you stiletto height to your lashes! The grip brush grasps & coats each lash from all angles while it's elastic formula lengthens for a dramatic finish. It also contains Pro-Vitamin B5 to condition & smooth the lashes to give a black patent shine to complete the striking finish! So far the feedback seems to be all good, great packaging that makes it fit neatly into your bag, the applicator is thin & easy to use, only small thing is in order to get the effect they boast you may need two or three coats, however you can do so with no clumping so no real problems there! Also a penny pinching favourite at under £8!
'The Rise of The Pillow Face' has been a popular talking point this week & I don't think we could find a better term for the new celebrity phenomena that has been sweeping the red carpets of late! Linda Evans snagging the Hells Kitchen trophy this week sparked quite a few remarks on her 'pillow' like cheeks at the 'tender' age of 65, clear give away signs of the new popular non-invasive cosmetic surgery...!!! Increasing numbers of A-listers are requesting the new sought after 'plumped' look, as opposed to the 'wind tunnel' face lift or the 'frozen' & 'shiny' Botox looks that have been all the rage over the last decade.. As we age & our skin looses not only it's elasticity but it's fullness & volume as well, which no amount of botox can bring back & that's where the magic 'Fillers' come in to play, with one simple injection all your youth can come flooding back....or does it!!?? Some may disagree & instead say all we see is unnatural puffed out cheeks & swollen lips!
The most popular fillers are Restylane, Voluma & Radiese & now a new more controversial product called Sculptra which was developed for AIDS patients whose faces would sink around the skill after treatment.
Below are a few other clear candidates for the Pillowface age, some food for thought on how we would like to see ourselves in the next 10 or even 20 years perhaps!!!?? -
