LipFusion Color Shine really works! It can be worn over or under lip color and it instantly plumps lips! This stuff is a bit expensive but it lasts about 4-6 months. They have a day version which can be found at CVS, Sephora or other fine stores. $38
LipFusion Color Shine-The next generation of lip plumpers has arrived. LipFusion is a moisturizing treatment gloss infused with revolutionary technology to plump lips instantly - no kidding. How it works: Tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen micro spheres are instantly absorbed by the lips, and seek out the body's natural moisture. As soon as the spheres become rehydrated, they plump and hold onto the moisture they've collected, creating a mild "swelling" of the lip tissue. The result is fuller, smoother, perfectly plumped lips in seconds. Results can last for up to 48 hours.
I like it because it doesn't smell and it isn't too irritating. It costs about $5.00 and can be found at any drugstore. Here is some product information:

His name is Sebastian and he is so perfect. But is there another one that someone isn't telling me about and they don't want to share? My friends can be so cruel. They always avoid this topic.
I have tried the bedhead, the garnier fructise, the aquanet, the suave, the aussie, even the reliable jonathan. Nothing seems to work better than Sebastian. If you have a hairspray tip you want to share, please let me know. Until then , I will be testing others and posting the results here.
I read that you should avoid barrettes because they tend to catch hair and break it at the root. They also put tension on the root, making it stretch, and therefore more vulnerable to breakage. I also read that you should "never use an elastic band to hold back your hair -- it'll catch every split end or rough cuticle it can and yank the strand out." You are supposed to use a soft scrunchy, ribbon or very lightweight clasp. Also, if you have a headache from pulling your hair back, it is a sign that the style is too tight.
Well, so much for Ponytail July. I guess I will have to find a way to make ribbons work in my hair or some puffy scrunchies. Hey, maybe I can start making my own in cute fabrics like U of A, the Cubs, and Star Wars (so my sons will think I am cool).
When I first used it I was amazed! It really gets hot in your hands and as you rub it on your face (very gently) it heats up more and eventually cools down. I felt so refreshed after I used it but afraid my face would be beet red. Turns out, it was fine! The website states that it takes a few weeks to notice your anti-aging results (ha ha) but I am pretty excited about the cleansing factor.
If you need something other than coffee to pick you up in the morning, this is the product. I am sure that there are some similar products out there but this one works for me. I also ordered their Planet Spa Hawaiian Thermal Volcano Paraffin Hand and foot treatment and lotion so I will review that as soon as I receive it!

I have used Victoria's Secret thermal foot treatment and it worked similarly but did not heat up as much and wasn't very effective on my feet. I noted that Olay also has a thermal pedicure treatment but it is pricey at 9.99 on drugstore.com. It got five stars though! Maybe I will check it out if I have a coupon or find it on sale.
This has not been available in the US and will now be offered here. I will be looking for it at local stores to tell you how it works. Cheryl - if you find it in New York please buy a can! I have read it can be found in NYC. Amanda??
L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray comes in many variants; normal, supreme hold, UV filter, prevents colour fade etc. so there is something for everyone. The best part being that it also comes in a nifty handbag size for those last minute emergencies or touch ups.
To use, remove the security tab and shake can. Spray in short bursts from about 12 inches away. Price: $14-$34 depending on size.
We bought a mp3 player and a Garmin gps and both purchases were successful. I think we got free shipping on both and if you use google checkout they take an additional amount off the total. The shipping wasn't super fast (about 5 days) but we were happy with both products.
Costco has several items online that they do not offer in the store. They offer free shipping on many of the items too. In addition, they have travel packages. For my disney trip, it was cheaper to go through AAA (even though I am not a member they will let you buy them over the phone)but Carol used Costco last year and was very happy with them. As with AAA, you receive extra goodies such as a Disney gift card to use in the park. If they don't list your trip/hotel online you can call the 1-800 number, price it out and compare. They are open from 8am-5pm and the customer service is amazing- friendly and patient.
I also bought my camera online at Costco and had a great experience. They recently updated their photo center and it is still in the process of transfering over. I have ordered pictures in the past online and the shipping was free! I ordered over 300 pictures one time and they came in a box and it was still free shipping. I am going to order some soon and see if they caught on to this detail. Kodak gallery charges a fee and also a shipping fee. When I ordered them at CVS they messed up the order and all of the pictures had a black line on the bottom. They gave me a refund but I will most likely never use CVS again for pictures (at least ordering them online through kodak). Costco has never messed up an order for me.
I ordered shoes one time and they came the very next day via FED EX as promised. Free shipping and free returns. They charge a little more but if they have your shoe and you need it quickly - this is a no-brainer. ALSO- they have shoe reviews from real people. I listed one and it showed up the next day. I have some friends who have used zappos and also love them. A little pricey but a good resource to compare and also great reviews.
Works every time! Free shipping and they haven't messed up my order once. The shipping is very slow though (about 7 days)
The Company Store and Old Navy. (great)
DO NOT LIKE OVERSTOCK.COM
I bought something and they charge you a restocking fee and shipping. I will never use them again. I know some people have used them and they liked them but I was very unsatisfied.
One of the hottest celebrities today, actress Jessica Biel is beloved for her incredible body and is more popular than ever due to her relationship with singer Justin Timberlake. But even the hottest actresses have some fashion faux pas in their past. In this picture in 2003, Biel is appearing a bit too Dita Von Teese-like to bad effect.
No-no's to avoid:
Red lips are a timeless trend, but don't let them clash with strong eye makeup. Keep the rest of your makeup light if you opt for bright lips, lest you appear like Bozo the clown.
Heavy eye-makeup is particularly aging. Heavy shadow all the way to the brows is too much, unless you are performing onstage, in which case, have at it.
Careful with the shimmer. As former model Lauren Hutton says in the November, 2007, issue of Marie Clare magazine, shimmer can act like "airport runway lights -- illuminating every line, wrinkle and pore." Hutton should know, since she created her own makeup line when she couldn't find makeup that flattered her aging skin.
Pick the right outfit. Here, Biel's makeup is fighting for attention with the bow on her sweater. If you opt for dark lips, they need to be the center of attention. Keep the rest of your outfit, classy and simple.
