Whitney's Million Dollar Bill Gets a Well Groomed Makeover


Whitney Houston has traded in her crack pipe for a catchy comeback hit — Million Dollar Bill— and just when I thought the song couldn't get any better, five hotties from Asbury Park New Jersey give it a well-groomed makeover. Hellz to the yeah. Enjoy!

Natural Looking Makeup for Men



Men are slowly adopting beauty techniques that were once reserved for women only. It all started with with facial moisturizers, masks and waxing and now it seems that makeup is inching it's way into the men's room. Now that many of these grooming practices are commonplace for men, can the application of makeup be far behind? I'm seeing more and more YouTube videos offering makeup tips for men. Jean Paul Gaultier has produced a men's makeup line for a while and now other smaller companies are popping up with with products like cosmetic concealer sticks for men.

The Men Pen is a men's concealer product designed to cover up specific areas like acne, moles, scars, dark circles, blemishes, or just rough spots! It comes in 17 different colors so finding the right shade should be easy. You can buy The Men Pen online or if you feel brave and ballsy, you can always go to the MAC or Chanel counter and get tips from the makeup artists.

Best Grooming Tip: Get a Good Night's Sleep (and eat)

Photobucket

Getting seven to eight hours of sleep each night is nearly impossible, and that's especially true if you live in NYC, but there are ways to get your body geared for some zzzz's without opting for a warm glass of milk and a graham cracker. In the book Eat This Not That, David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding share some pretty interesting before-bedtime foods and drinks that have been shown to induce "feel good" relaxation chemicals. Check them out here.

Still a Bad Idea


Men in heels is just a bad idea. Even if the model is Baptiste Giabiconi and the photographer is Karl Lagerfeld. There, I said it.

VICTORINOX SWISS UNLIMITED

Photobucket
With its powerful claim – “no boundaries, no borders, no barriers” – the new Victorinox Swiss Unlimited fragrance is an eau de toilette for men who believe in the core values of the Victorinox brand – ingenuity, functionality, quality and timeless design.

With a woody bottom note, Swiss ingredients and long lasting, unique scent, Victorinox Swiss Unlimited is a logical continuation of the brand’s philosophy of combining design, quality, functionality and innovation with today’s modern lifestyles. In staying with the brand’s philosophy and values of environmental responsibility, the Victorinox Swiss Unlimited fragrance packaging includes a streamlined glass bottle enclosed in a red neoprene sheath, stamped with the famous cross & shield emblem. The larger bottle is refillable, and sheath removable. The clear aquamarine color of the fragrance further enhances the fresh sensation. For adventurers, Victorinox Swiss Army created an innovative “U-Fill Tool”, a refillable mini-bottle for traveling. Both bottles are supplied with a carabineer.


I stopped by the Vicorinox Swiss Army Knife Airstream Trailer as it pulled into NYC’s Union Square to celebrate the companies 125th Anniversary Road Tour. On display: the new Swiss Unlimited fragrance, along with their clothing, luggage and of course the famous knives. And for the techy adventurer, the Swiss Army Knife now comes with a USB Flash drive! All bases are covered.

Depth - live beneath the surface


I’m fascinated by a skincare brand that I recently discovered at Whole Foods. It’s called Depth — a nicely packaged, high-quality line that includes shampoos, conditioners, body washes, hand soaps and shave creams. The line was actually created by two marine biologists. Depth harnesses essential, sea-based, therapeutic ingredients to stimulate skin by delivering a big burst of moisture. Super luxury products like La Mer base their moisturizers on the properties of deep-sea ingredients also. Depth draws upon three different classes of sea botanicals – Brown (Phaeophyta), Green (Chlorophyta) and Red (Rhodophyta) algae – to deliver hydration and minerals to the skin. The products are all natural, 70% organic, 100% vegetarian, hypo-allergenic, and free of parabens, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, phthalates, petroleum and mineral oils, glycols, and harsh cleansers; they also feature 100% natural aromatic blends. The Depth collection comes in four exclusive scents that are definitely guy-friendly: Mangrove Citrus, Sea Berry, Orange Blossom and Bay Coconut. Depth is available at Whole Foods and DrugStore.com
