Fashion Week Survival‏


With Fashion Week (September 8th – 15th) fast approaching, the ‘beautiful people’ are sure to come out in droves! You too can join the fashion elite by prepping your skin with make-up artist must-haves from Mama Mio Skincare – a brand favorite of make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury and models Claudia Schiffer, Natalia Vodianova, and Christy Turlington.

- Eye Know ($39) – This jam-packed serum tackles dehydration, dark circles, puffiness, crow’s feet, wrinkles, and saggy baggy-ness, leaving you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed even after a long night of high heels and smoky eyes.

- Love Your Life Lines ($48) – The ultimate enemy of lines and furrows, this concentrated light-reflecting cream gets right in the groove for immediate reduction of fine wrinkles while 10 actives work to plump up and fill out deep facial lines. Get ready for your close-up!

- Skin Tight ($56) – Dubbed “the gym for slack skin”, this innovative body care breakthrough brings facial peel technology to the body. In just one step, the major multi-tasker delivers four key benefits: tightening, exfoliation, moisturizing and anti-aging – the perfect accessory for Friday’s body con dress

And to help you survive the hustle and bustle of Fashion Week, try these survival must-haves:

- Lucky Legs ($19.50) – Strutting your stuff in stilettos in Lincoln Center can leave your legs and feet in need of intense refreshment. This mini-spa treatment glides on to instantly cool and ease weary limbs—from knees to tippy toes.

- OMega Body Buff ($33) – Don’t let rough skin spoil your fashion forward façade – buff up with this gentle yet effective blend of Sweet Almond Oil, Chamomile, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, featuring micro-ground pumice to reveal soft and supple skin.

- Get Waisted ($56) – Reverse the damage of the inevitable Fashion Week soirees with this miracle ab-rehab cream. Formulated with clinically tested waist-whittling actives, Get Waisted helps to flush out fat, eliminate puffiness and give a more defined, tighter appearance.

Kim Kardashian discovers the perfect psoriasis cover-up?

Kim Kardashian is living with psoriasis. I don’t know how she does it. I mean, how awful. What could POSSIBLY be worse than psoriasis!? (You picking up my sarcasm here?) Kim boldly and bravely opened up about her struggles with psoriasis on her reality show, ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’. We got to see Kim break down and lose it over getting the awful diagnosis. Is there a medal we can give her?

Well, these pictures landed in my inbox this morning, and I realized that Kimmy is probably using this psoriasis as a way to make more money.

This is a photo of my psoriasis before! The next pic in the galley is the AFTER pic! I’m using Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs spray and it is my lifesaver at the moment! I love this stuff! It really covers up my psoriasis so well!

Now, I’m only guessing that she’s being paid for this blurb in her blog….but methinks the Kardashian’s wouldn’t turn away a chance to make a buck. They will promote anything! Sell anything! Heck, Kris is making money off her incontinence issues!

Ever the opportunist, 55-year-old Kris Jenner managed to turn incontinence into yet another money maker, landing a gig as the face of Poise pads.

What do you think – was Kim paid for this post?

More on the product from Sally Hansen:

Tanning and pantyhose are so yesterday. Now you can give your legs a makeover in just seconds. No sun. No salon. No streaks. Just flawless looking, irresistible, sexy legs. This light-weight leg makeup, enriched with Palmaria Extract, enhances the coverage of freckles, veins and imperfections. It’s water and transfer resistant. Bare legs are nice. Airbrush Legs are irresistible. Find Airbrush Legs ® in the Sally Hansen section at your local retailer.
