Gwyneth Paltrow Swears She's A Bit Of A Tomboy

• Gwyneth Paltrow admits that she's "never been a woman who's very interested in makeup and products. I'm kind of like a tomboy in that way." And she says she's against plastic surgery. Uh huh. Speaking as the new spokeslady for Restorsea, she swears that she's not gonna touch her face. "I like the fact that I'm 41, that I've been through everything I've been through. And I like my lines, but at the same time you want to look the best version of yourself as you age." [Bellasugar]   read more

10 Discontinued Products You Loved Back to Life

You spend years and a good chunk of change searching for the perfect lipstick -- the one that complements your skin tone, stays on and doesn't run -- and you find it. Two tubes in, it vanishes, and you discover the brand discontinued that particular shade. It's my nightmare. I buy in bulk and hoard my favorite beauty products in fear of my violet eyeliner or date night perfume being discontinued. And apparently, I'm not alone. When brands discontinued these beauty products, fans and loyal customers lost it. They launched e-mail campaigns, begged and threatened boycotts.
