Tired of Looking Tired

Under eye circles and puffiness are one of the most common beauty complaints and are usually genetically inherited, or accrued from late nights at the office, lack of sleep, and general stress. I have tried hundreds of products that promise to cover and hide the “sleepless night look” so many of us sport under our eyes. Here are some of my picks to combat and conceal- and help anyone who is tired of looking tired!

Frownies Eye Gels, Under Eye & Eye Lid Collagen Patches, $29.95
Frownies eye gels are the first step in achieving a deflated under eye area. The anti-wrinkle treatment contains strong anti-oxidants that not only help protect the sensitive skin, but in one thirty minute treatment 100% of women saw a reduction of fine lines, puff and dark circles. The weight of the patch soothes the under eye area and fights free radical damage. For optimal results, all you have to do is use the gel three nights in a row and then sporadically once a week from there on out! They’re also great to use before any special nights out or as a 30 minute treatment. Frownies are a tinseltown staple and a favorite of Raquel Welch, Rashida Jones and the entire Kardashian clan!

Yves Saint Laurent GLOSS PUR Pure Lip Gloss: Lip-Stick Wearing Convert


I have never really liked how I look in lipstick, but I recently came across 4 new shades of YSL GLOSS PUR Pure Lip Gloss from their Solaris Collection for Summer 2010. Each color is completely different, but I fell in love with all of them. After trying the colors over and over and wasting a whole bin of lip testers I finally decided on Pure Watermelon. The gloss smells heavenly, feels incredibly luxurious, and fills out any lines you may have to give your lips a perfect, shiny-porcelain appearance.

Tip: Don’t be alarmed by the dramatic colors—none of the shades go on as bright as they look. But they are sure to make a kissable statement on any skin tone.—Emilee Malvehy

So Many Shoes, So Little Time


At my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah a few weeks ago, I noticed that most of my girlfriends were wearing cute sandals. Although I love my silver Miu Mius (middle pair), I found myself adoring all of the others. Question is, which pair to buy next? Tell us your favorite in the comments section below. —Melissa Meyers
