Nearly half of women feel unattractive without using cosmeticsMany women prefer "natural-looking makeup," but would you consider skipping makeup altogether? A new study found that 44% of women hate being seen without a full face of cosmetics. The Harris poll, conducted on behalf of the Renfrew Center Foundation, is the latest in a series of studies that show our increasing dependency on products to boost our self esteem. According to The Globe and Mail, surveyors asked the cosmetics-addicted 44% why they can't go without makeup, and they gave these answers:Read More »from 44% of Women Feel Unattractive Without Makeup

-14% felt self-conscious without makeup
-14% felt naked without makeup
For many this is a lifelong habit that's hard to break. One in four women polled have been wearing makeup since they were 13 or younger. We understand the desire (and on early mornings, the need) to use concealer, mascara, and lipstick to look your best at work or for a big night out, but what about forgoing makeup on the weekends and letting your skin

AnnaSophia Robb (left) will portray a young Carrie Bradshaw in the 1980sCarrie Bradshaw is a character many women love and some ladies loathe. Likewise, "Sex and the City" devotees have mixed feelings about Candace Bushnell's prequel, "The Carrie Diaries" coming to the small screen. Casting the right actress to portray a young Carrie Bradshaw is crucial, and we're not so sure about the selection of AnnaSophia Robb.Read More »from AnnaSophia Robb to Play Young Carrie Bradshaw in CW’s “The Carrie Diaries”
Robb, 18, is best known for her portrayal of Violet Beauregarde in Tim Burton's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," and most recently played shark attack victim Bethany Hamilton in "Soul Surfer." Robb was just five years old when "Sex and the City" debuted on HBO, and may lack any connection to the fashion-obsessed, boy-crazy, aspiring writer she's supposed to play. We can only hope she's preparing for the role by watching lots of the early episodes and perfecting her corny puns for voiceovers.
As for the premise, "The Carrie Diaries" is set in the 1980s and shows a young Bradshaw navigating friendships, relationships, sex, and family during

Leigh Ann says, "the packaging is so pretty with the light purple, blue and silver accents." Judy was pleased that the pump didn't clog or splatter like many tend to do. "A small amount is dispensed without having too much which is ideal for my children and myself," she says.
"The scent was quite strong upon application but it wasn't bothersome as I really like the smell of lavender and jasmine," says Carol B. "I was impressed by how long the scent lingered. In fact, when I first used the lotion after my bath my husband mentioned how nice the smell was. Apparently he liked the scent too." M.J. says, "I like the
At the Oscars Angelina Jolie was upstaged by her own right leg. Many A-list celebs put their best foot forward on the Oscar red carpet, but one leading lady had a literal leg up on the competition. Angelina Jolie's right leg got a whole lot of attention last night, as the actress made exaggerated poses to show off the thigh-high slit of her Versace gown.Read More »from Angelina’s Right Leg Has 15,000 Twitter Followers
When it came time for Jolie to present Best Adapted Screenplay on stage, she stood at the mic and took a moment to place her hand on her hip and swing her right leg out from beneath her dress. She grinned as the audience cheered and made cat calls. Then once "The Descendants" screenwriters Alexander Payne, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash came up to accept the award they mocked Jolie's leggy pose for the crowd, drawing lots of laughter. Jolie seemed to love every minute of it.
And the attention didn't stop there. Social media exploded in reaction to Angie's Right Leg, which now has it's own Twitter account. The page features a close up of Jolie's leg and lists 18 Tweets, telling people to "Check out this

Dr. Michael Niccole gave his daughter Brittani breast implants for her 18th birthday. "I didn't have large breasts when I was younger, and all my friends did," Brittani told "20/20." Her adoptive father was happy to help her dream become a reality, and even gave her a nose job right before she turned 21. Dr. Niccole also performed belly button surgery on his other adopted daughter, Charm, when she was just 10 years old. "It was an outtie and I didn't like it at all, so I went under anesthesia and he changed it for me," she told "20/20."
Dr. Niccole says operating on his own daughters is really not a concern. I've done surgery on my other sons,

Underwear vending machines: creepy or practical?You may have bought some Doritos, rented RedBox DVDs, or scooped up Sephora makeup from a vending machine, but wouldn't it be convenient to buy other necessities on the go? This seems to be the logic of creative entrepreneurs looking to make their wares more accessible and useful to consumers. Last year we wrote about Rollasole affordable flats popping up in machines at night clubs-we think they're a brilliant idea for ladies who dance up a storm in heels and are forced teeter home barefoot. But we're not sure if we'll be stuffing quarters into a machine for the latest vending treat: underwear.Read More »from Underwear Vending Machines Coming to Gyms, Hotels, and Airports Near You
