    … the two tone lips are cute, but does that mean you can’t press your lips together all night?!

    1. michellehorton says:

      @Emily: I was thinking the same exact thing. How long can it last?

  2. Danielle says:

    I actually have ombre hair right now and I love it! My hair is dark brown fading into a honey blonde at the ends. It’s low maintenance too which is great since I’m giving birth in January!

  3. michellehorton says:

    @Danielle: Congrats on your pregnancy!! And I love the low-maintenance appeal of the ombre look.

  4. Summer says:

    Please, I’ve been rockin’ pink eyeshadow since highschool lol. While most of the time it’s light pink shimmer, sometimes I kick it up with a matte hot pink. If I’m feeling particularly adventurous, or a bit goth, I’ll run hot pink all around my eye and smudge it. I didn’t realize that it was “in”, guess I was “cool” for a minute hehe.

  5. Sarah says:

    I think the silver/blue lipstick thing may have come to be because of all the zombie stuff lately.Make yourself look like the undead, it’s HOT! lol

  6. yasemin says:

    i’m scared about the whole stamped on hair color thing yeeeeeeep

  7. Tanya says:

    Being a woman myself, I don’t get why so many others of my kind adhere to such ludicrous fashion trends. For me, the eternal, never-fading trend is just to be yourself and don’t give a …. what others think.

  8. Shea Tek says:

    I never liked the hair feathers, though I use pink eye shadow almost every day. Hard Candy baked eyeshadow used wet looks good when it’s pink–not like those weird pictures. I did dye my hair light pink this year and do black tips. I like it, but you know–different strokes for different folks.

  9. ShelbyAlice says:

    I have dip-dyed hair, and I love it (: Right now it’s dark brown with the ends bleached blonde, but I have had it teal, and before that bright red. It’s a very easy to keep hairstyle and very simple to do. I did all of mine by myself!

  10. FluffFluff says:

    Honestly, they aren’t “Bizarre” compared to other things I’ve seen. All of these trends are pretty tame.

  11. Amanda says:

    I’ve used the stick on nail polish and it is AMAZING! Lasts SO much longer than normal nail polish but can be taken off as easily as it is put on!
