Fergie covers Allure, denies having plastic surgery

Fergie graces the July cover of Allure Magazine, and in the interview she denies having any plastic surgery done, despite the rumors. She says all she did was start parting her hair on the other side, and started wearing a brighter lipstick. Is that it? Is that all she’s worked one? I checked out a few older pictures of her, and nothing really stands out – maybe she’s telling the truth!

On having plastic surgery:

“I did two major drastic things, which is hair to the side—it was the first time—and the big neon lip. I wanted to try something different, and all of a sudden it was this big backlash. People were saying ‘It’s a fake Fergie.’ I heard about some ridiculous amount of money that I spent on my face, which I think is absolutely insane.”

Fergie on her age:

“I’m definitely young at heart, and I always will be, I’m just trying to age gracefully.”

On her body:

“I think people think that I’m pregnant sometimes because my weight fluctuates … My problem is my discipline. I see a Jack in the Box or a Del Taco, and I will impulsively want it. I’m a work in progress in that area … I gain and lose weight everywhere from the thighs up.”

On her relationship with Will.I.am:

“There is conflict, he’s very protective, and it drives me nuts because I do a lot of my best work, writing-wise, when I’m completely alone.”

On working so hard:

“I took a break to have a wedding. I’ve definitely committed some time this year to the Peas, but not as [much as] I have in previous years. I need balance in my life, and the guys understand that … I don’t think Will ever wants a break. We’re very different in that way.”

On her looks:

“I’ve learned to love my nose because it’s unique. It’s interesting, and it just makes me a little different.”

She tries to be a good person:

“I try to be a nice person. I’m not filled with saccharine. Do you want me to give you some bad things that I do? I’m obviously married, so I don’t sleep around. I guess I’ve tamed my ways a little bit, but I am 36.”

POLL: Do you prefer Sephora or Ulta?

I’m not going to lie…my very first visit to an Ulta happened about a week ago, and it was because I was shopping next door and decided I didn’t have the energy to drive out to the mall and hit Sephora like I normally do. The Ulta is so much closer to me, I don’t know what my problem was! I think I was a Sephora snob! I would drive twice as far to go to Sephora – and they don’t even carry Fekkai products anymore!

Once I finally did visit Ulta, I’m shocked I waited so long! It’s fantastic! I’ll probably never drive to the mall for Sephora ever again! The prices are better than Sephora – and they have MORE products!

I figured most women preferred one or the other – so which one do you prefer? Sephora or Ulta?

Not a fan of Frederic Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless

I went to Ulta the other day, and went straight to Fekkai, for my must-have Glossing Cream (I’ll never use anything else on my hair!). I noticed that Fekkai has a new line of products, called Silky Straight Ironless.

Each product in the Silky Straight Ironless collection, infused with advanced micro-smoothing technology, is created to work synergistically to create and hold chic, straight style and luxuriously silky texture without effort. This weightless Smooth Finish Serum wraps each hair strand with concentrated smoothing agents and fights humidity, frizz and curl all day for sleek and shiny hair.

I have always had a problem with frizzy hair, and while Glossing Cream is the best product for this, I still have flyaways all day long to deal with! So I picked up Fekkai’s Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum. The description read:

This weightless Smooth Finish Serum wraps each hair strand with concentrated smoothing agents and fights humidity, frizz and curl all day for sleek and shiny hair.

How to use: For best results, apply 1-2 pumps and spread through dry hair. For especially unruly hair, combine with the Ironless Straightening Balm on wet hair before blow-drying.

Sounds perfect, no?

Well no…it’s not. It doesn’t work at fighting frizz AT ALL. It did not leave me with sleek and shiny hair. In fact, I’m not sure it didn’t make my hair worse!

I returned it to Ulta, and bought another bottle of Glossing Cream.

Tom Ford debuts new makeup line!

The designer, who is set to debut his first full makeup line this year, has been obsessed with beauty since he was a kid — for better and for worse. As he recounted to Women’s Wear Daily:

“When I was 14, I had to be taken to the emergency room because the cucumber slices I had put on my eyes — to camouflage the bags — had made them swell shut. I could eat cucumbers, but my eyes were clearly allergic to them.”

Yikes. Thankfully with his new beauty collection, which includes everything from hyper-pigmented lip glosses to contouring illuminator and brow pencils, Ford and his many fans can rely on more fail-proof methods for perfecting their skin. WWD noted:

Ford also uses a lot of the skin care products himself, including the Traceless Foundation Stick in the corners of his nose and eyes, the Illuminating Protective Primer, and the Purifying Crème Cleanser — “it goes on like cold cream and the skin feels moisturized and unbelievable.” He sometimes sleeps in the oil-based serum, Intensive Infusion Concentrate Extreme, which he said absorbs straight into the skin.
