Depil Brazil’s clean, fast technique relies on two direct applications of warm, soothing, highly elastic wax – and no paper. In each client’s private room, our highly trained, professional estheticians remove the entire strip of wax in the first pull, normally removing about 80 percent of hair with minimal pain. Then, wax is reapplied, and the second pull painlessly removes the rest. Multiple areas of skin are waxed at the same time, getting clients back to their busy lives much faster, with smoother skin that lasts.

Who doesn’t love Clinique’s Chubby Stick, that on-the-go lip balm of moisturizing color, which is so fun to use and comes in a rainbow of shades. Now Clinique is introducing a new member of the Chubby Stick family: Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes ($16). It’s easy to apply, allergy tested, and the colors are über flattering. And like its big sister, the stick is perfectly portable and convenient, delivering a sheer wash of pretty colors that are buildable, blendable, and long-lasting.
Ease of use is really at the heart of this sheer stick shadow that applies evenly across the eyelid. Silky and creamy, it stays put without dusting onto cheeks or creasing during hectic and long days. Since it’s formulated with vitamin E, it’ll keep your eyes feeling soft, too.
Chubby Stick’s crayon-like barrel makes application a cinch when you’re running short of time and out the door. A twist of the base exposes just the right amount of tint; a quick sweep across the lid gives you an everyday or dramatic look in a snap; a quick twist down and you can replace the cap with a “click.” My colleague said that even when she dabbed the Chubby Stick on her eyelids, she could see the color immediately. So if you want a more subtle look, a little can go a long way.
According to Clinique Global Color Artist Jenna Menard, “You can create a professional look in just minutes by applying different colors on particular areas of the lid. The key is to blend the edges of the colors with a shadow brush before the makeup sets.”
Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes comes in 12 shades, ranging from nudes (“Bountiful Beige”) to pinks (“Pink & Plenty”), violets (“Lavish Lilac” and “Portly Plum”) to blues (“Big Blue” and “Massive Midnight”). Let your imagination lead you and layer several together. “Each shade can be worn alone as an allover color on the lid, combined with an eyeliner to create more definition, layered under a powder shadow to create more dimension with two textures, or layered with other shadow sticks to create a creamy blend of wow colors on the lids,” Ms. Menard says.
Just like the Chubby Sticks for lips, we expect the version for eyes to be a huge hit. Look for them in stores in February 2013.

When I was in high school, everyone wore Jean Nate. It was the light and clean citrus scent that we loved. Now the world of cosmetics is overflowing with lemon-based products. The lemon is both a small evergreen tree native to Asia, and the tree’s oval yellow fruit. The distinctive sour taste of lemon juice makes it a key ingredient in many dishes and it’s also used in aromatherapy, first aid and medicine. Use it for itchy, flaky scalp and unclogging pores. Rinse hands and feet in lemon juice and water to and pat dry. You can even get sunny highlights with lemon juice. Here’s a roundup of some lemony loveliness to try:
