Ah, the lazy days of summer. The perfect time to talk about things that we just never can get to work.
Tear your eyes off that mouse potato on the other side of the room; we're not talking about him. We're talking about beauty products that never seem to provide us with the promised result.
Sure we all laugh about the back-of-the-magazine miracles we all KNOW don't work -- the fat-pulverizing pills and the anti-cellulite suits and those creams that say they'll take a girl from point A to, ahem, point DD. No one falls for those, anymore. Not more than once or twice, anyway.
But what about those things that have lured us in, more times than we care to mention, with more convincing promises of future-perfection; those constantly evolving products we always believe will push us one step closer to Heidi Klum-dom.
We're pretty sure every woman (and a number of men) has been disappointed by a beauty product at some time or another. Maybe for you an eyelash curler is an eyelash crimper. Maybe you've battled more than once to do an at-home French manicure. Or, how about self-tanners, perms, at-home waxing kits, nail hardeners, concealer?
Whatever the disappointment or unmitigated failure, we want to hear about it.
Send a paragraph (100 words or fewer, please), telling us your tale of beauty woe to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, July 25, and we will mention the funniest, most common and most tragic in a future story.
