Tweezerman’s Zip File is the perfect example of a product with an innovative packaging that actually works.

The Zip File is a nail file housed in a cute plastic case so you can easily slide the file out to fix chips and nicks and slide back to keep the file protected and clean. Plus it contains two sides, a coarser side for shortening and shaping nails and a slightly smoother side to buff and seal the edge.

Now I no longer have an excuse to chew on my chipped mani or leave it unfixed just because I don’t have a file with me. Hooray!

The Zip File is available at Tweezerman.com for $5.50. For every file that is sold, Tweezerman will be donating $1 to the SmileTrain foundation, an organization dedicated to providing free surgeries to children with cleft lips and palates in 75 of the world’s poorest countries.

To answer some of your skin-related questions, I did a brief interview with Dr. Jeanine B. Downie, a board certified dermatologist with medical licenses in the states of New Jersey and New York. Dr. Downie is also a frequent contributor to The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View etc. and has been quoted on numerous magazines like Glamour, Allure, Elle and more.

Thanks to a trick I picked up from guru Victor C at the MAC Pro Sculpting The Face Master Class and Tweezerman’s BrowMousse, I no longer have to worry about my eyebrows disappearing in the 90+°F Chicago summers!

The BrowMousse is a clear gel designed to help tame those unruly eyebrows and keep your brow makeup in place. Unlike some lower end brow gels, this is super lightweight, non-sticky and never stiffens or looks gummy when it is dry. It also comes with a slightly smaller spoolie applicator that is gentle on the skin and deposits the gel evenly with great precision. All I have to do is brush this through my brows, wait a few seconds for it to dry then fill in my brows with powder and it gives excellent hold so the powder stays on all day. Oh and did I mention that it only retails $10 and is available at all drugstores nationwide? Loves!
