WHAT IF A CREAM COULD PERK YOUR POSTERIOR?

BREAKING NEWS: THIS ONE CAN!

Of course remedies, creams, and other alleged cosmetic miracles that promise to pop the posterior, tighten the tush and display it in its roundest, perkiest light, are most welcome during bikini season, when “les bums” are at their most exposed (especially for those daring enough to sport the floss that now pass for bottoms!).

Still, even in Fall, when bathing suits give way to heavier gear, the derrière gets plenty of play in the season’s curve hugging denim, forever snug leggings, and yes, LBDs that no proper Social Gal can live without. Heaven forbid!

And so, that is the reason I still obsessively religiously slather on … drum roll please … BRAZILIAN BUM BUM CREAM (pronounced boom boom in Portuguese):

BUM BUM CREAM IN THE COOLEST CONTAINER EVER!

 

Yes, that’s what it’s called, for real, no jokesies, and after seeing a blurb about it in the pages of my beloved Tatler Magazine (aka the original social ‘zine), I couldn’t help but order a jar. I mean who could resist a name (and container) like that?! Just seeing it on the bathroom shelf never fails to provoke a giggle!

Even better: The beyond well marketed potion, that glides on easily and absorbs quickly, actually works.

Action-packed with proven perkifying ingredients like Guaraná, a native Amazonian plant containing one of the most potent forms of caffeine around (as well as a masterful blend of Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí and Coconut Oil), the cream so many swear by has caused a burst of good stuff to erupt in the booty region; a smooth & sexy lift that continues to elicit good comments and feedback, even when swathed in jeans, and other Fall fabulous!

Should you give this beauty baby a whirl? You bet your soon to swell sassily arse!

Re: application: Be sure to massage in a clockwise circular motion, per the instructions, and then, don’t stop at the bum bum. Do like the rest of us smitten kittens and continue the rub into other worthy parts like arms, gams and yes, tum tum!

Even the sweet fruity smell will intoxicate, conjuring up all kinds of naughty beachy keen images of you and your love on the next jaunt to Rio. 😉

 

INTRODUCING YOUR POUT’S NEW PAMPER

LAISSEZ FAIRE LIPCARE YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT

What if you could apply your lipliner once in the AM, in a shade of your pleasure, selected from a groundbreaking range of 30 hues (we’re swooning over cult-fave Lolita), that would not only feel smooth and silky upon application (creamy enough to wear alone), but last and last and last, even if intense workouts and swims are on the day’s agenda?

Well, you can! Kat Von D’s new Everlasting lip liners are as perfect as her much-loved Everlasting and Studded Kiss Lipsticks, combining 24-hour wear with water-resistant reliability.

That kind of lipliner. 😉

 

Just swipe the high-pigmented, incredibly comfortable, weightless formulations over pouts in the morning, and then merrily surrender to the delicious feel of NOT having to slavishly reapply throughout the day, and post meals.

One less beauty thing to do! Yay! Tequila shots to that. 😉

AND … icing on the Social Gal Secret: These beauty babies are formulated without parabens, are not tested on animals, and are a match for all of the range’s lipsticks like these:

THE MIRROR THAT MAKES YOUR SKIN BETTER

Who knew?

We’re about to change the way you look in the mirror forever, that is the HiMirror, a technovation in beauty that came about because Simon Shen, the CEO of a prominent Taiwanese electronics group, wanted to create a product that would get his wife more excited about his industry.

Mission accomplished. The HiMirror is a genius invention, currently living its best self as the HiMirror Plus, that revolutionizes the way we reflect.

In fact, this revered enhancing gadget, with built-in security protection for the paranoid inclined (like yours truly), not only has the ability, via up-to-the-minute LED technology, to simulate five different lighting scenarios that will (literally) reflect your given destination at a particular time (sunset, restaurant/party, shopping/supermarket, bright office, and outdoor/sunny), but can actually analyze skin problems and track progress, on a day-to-day and month-to-month basis, thereby enabling  efficacious analysis of which products and regimens work best for you.

Developed in conjunction with beauty professionals and dermatologists, the mirror assesses and tracks individual skin conditions, from dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines, red and dark spots, and more, offering effective skin care plans based on the results of the Skin Index Synthesis.

While the information is intended for personal reference only, and is not intended to replace a medical diagnosis, it sure as heck ups the ante of any of the boring old mirrors we gaze into now! 😉

Moreover, in addition to the above, the new plus version enables users to add up to six individuals, provides considerably more photo storage than the original (seven times more to be exact: 14,000), has enhanced wireless capacity, and even allows for syncing with the iPhone and other Shen inventions, like the Smart Body Scale.

I don’t know about you Social Gals and Gents, but my husband envy just went up. What does smart Simon have up his sleeve next? #Can’tWait #HappyWifeHappyLife. 😉
