It's Bastille Day, so what better time to take a look at French beauty lines with cult followings? We've found five collections that impress us so much that we want to book a flight on the next Air France jet. They're tricky to track down in the States, but it's well worth the effort. Want to see what we found? Alors, suivez-nous!
I always associate bust-enhancement schemes with sketchy ads in the back pages of teen magazines and 1960s adolescents chanting "We must, we must, we must increase our busts!" That's why I was stunned to discover that bust-enhancing creams have apparently gone high-end. You can now buy a jar of something called Sampar Lift Me Up Bust Cream at Fred Segal of all places. For $75 a pop, this cream claims to use "natural firming agents," such as wheat proteins and horse chestnut extract, to coat your skin in an invisible firming film for "immediate enhancement." This just seems wrong to me, and I can't imagine that this stuff actually works. What do you guys think? Would you be willing to try a bust-enhancement cream for $75? Or does this just seem absurd?
