One of the launch items for Sebastian Professional's new Flaunt Collection is a gift box collaboration with designer, and the brand's own cover girl, Charlotte Ronson. The set includes includes this limited edition T-shirt by Charlotte, Sebastian Professional Trilliant Thermal Protection and Shimmer Complex, and Sebastian Professional Light Shampoo & Conditioner.
Is it me or is this tee flaunting Charlotte's ex-girlfriend in-law Lindsay Lohan? With an April break-up and a May launch date it seems like rather unfortunate timing for what maybe (?) the final Lohan-Ronson collaboration.
You can find salons carrying the limited edition box set, priced at $45, here. Below is the behind the scenes for Charlotte's campaign shoot.

With short fat rubber bristles Max Factor's new 2000 Calorie Extreme Lash Plumper is somewhat of an unknown quantity in the quickly gentrifying neighborhood of novelty mascaras. While these bells and whistles draw you in, the desirable results of the formula itself are what will convert you.
First, I took a three hour nap is this with no smudging, smearing, or flaking. Its thick wet pigment never leaves lashes hard or claw-like. The formula is wet and moisturizing (possibly the reason for distinguishing it as a lash plumper rather than a simple mascara.) The results resemble those of fake lashes more than the usual mascara. I for one, am in love. Still, one request to Max Factor: develop a wand that makes "2000 calories" and "plump" sexy for the body as well as the lashes.

Since Exhale Spa is giving away free meditation classes I decided to visit their Central Park South outpost yesterday to do research on behalf of you, my lovely readers. Let me just say, though I couldn't make the mediation class, these instructors are simply the best I have ever seen. You must go. In a one hour Core Fusion Basic class they may change your life, as they did mine.
Despite being possibly the most out of shape person in the class, one hour in Core Fusion (basic!) increased my stamina and convinced me that I can in fact change the shape of my body. Diana, the sprite-sized yogini instructing the class, had a sinewy toned body which I imagined to have the automotive equivalent of a two-door mini cooper with a supped up engine. After an hour of watching her body pretzel about the room I've decided I have the flexibility of a grandma in an assisted living facility. Still, in my workout today I noticed increased stamina and Diana's stretches are releasing muscles that have been bound up for years.
Just like core fusion itself, the music, was outstanding and a bit of the best of everything - moving from LL Cool J to Enya without missing a beat. With 10 minutes left in the class, just as all of my limbs were convulsing and I swore I couldn't go on, LL Cool J started saying things like, "Push it out girl. Arch your back." and "Come on, come on, move somethin'. Come on, come on, prove somethin'. Do a split if you're really hard core" Done and Done.
Let's just say when LL speaks I listen. "Hurt me girl. Move somethin'."
