I need a cover-up & was thinking maybe one of these...
Monday, November 30
I think Demi is beautiful and it is a shame that she can't grace the cover as is without being altered. There is now even a term for it--they are saying she was Ralph-Lauren'd! Ugh!!
Consumer Reports’ (CR) first test of wrinkle creams finds that on average these products made little difference in the skin’s appearance and there’s no correlation between price and effectiveness. The luxury-priced skin-care offerings didn’t work any better than the drugstore brands in CR’sindependent, unbiased tests. Further, CR’s tests found no relationship between the types of active ingredients in the products and their overall performance.
Olay Regenerist, which is available in drugstores, was the top performer by a small margin. One of the less-costly products tested, Olay Regenerist, sells for about $19 apiece for the “enhancing lotion,” “perfecting cream,” and “regenerating serum” combination recommended by the company. Lancome Paris Renergie, $176, performed nearly as well. The most-costly product tested, La Prairie Cellular ($335 for an ounce of day cream and 1.7 ounces of night cream), was among the least effective. The wrinkle creams CR tested ranged in price from $38 to $335.
In CR’s tests, the top-rated products did smooth out some fine lines and wrinkles after 12 weeks. But even the best performers reduced the average depth of wrinkles by less than 10 percent, a magnitude of change that was barely visible to the naked eye.That last line really gets me. BARELY VISIBLE TO THE NAKED EYE. So, in other words we are wasting our money?!

I think maybe some of you thought I was trying to trick you, but I wasn't! While the difference between the mascaras was subtle to the eye, I definitely have a favorite. The YSL was by far superior in terms of texture, thickening, ease of application, and to me it almost looked like I had more lashes.

Top-rated was a department-store brand, Lancôme Définicils, $24.
But several other very good mascaras are sold in drugstores and supermarkets for just $7 to $9: Max Factor Lash Perfection Volume Couture, Maybelline Define-A-Lash Volume, Cover Girl VolumeExact, and L'Oréal Telescopic Clean Definition & Lengthening.
