How To: Big, Bold Brows as Seen at Fashion Week.

Big, bold brows were a trend seen at many Spring/Summer New York Fashion Weeks shows.  To get in on this trend next season, you might want to start now by growing in the brows and getting them in shape to be on trend.

Talika can help you with two of their products. One is to help grow lashes over time, the other to instantly fill in.

Talika Eyebrow Lipocils ($40)
This is the perfect natural remedy to overplucked brows. Use Eyebrow Lipocils twice daily for 28 days to naturally condition the brows with nettle extract and horse chestnut. The formula helps to stimulate both growth and thickening. After 28 days, use oncee daily to maintain your results.

Talika Eyebrow Extender ($35)
Apply the Eyebrow Extender to the brows for an immediate thickening effect. The gel/fiber hybrid—available in three shades to match brow color (light brown, dark brown and black), adheres to the brow area, creating the appearance of a bold, full brow instantly.



A Smile Booster from Talika.

When I first look at someone I notice their eyes, then their smile. A smile can tell a lot about a person, don't you think? Making your smile looks its best and brightest takes some work, especially as we, ahem, grow older. This handy little product from Talika boosts the appearance of your smile by smoothing out lips and whitening teeth.  Meet Talika Smile & Kiss.

Smile & Kiss ($35.00)  is a 2 in 1 treatment for the beauty of your smile. One action is for the lips giving colorless volumizing care. The second action is for the teeth giving whitening care.

Notice the two sides to the wand. Let's take a look at each side and what the active ingredients do.


  • Biological cinnamon essential oil – stimulates and firms
  • Root of Ginger extract – activates the micro-circulation
  • Peptides – increases the lips volume
  • Sea collagen – moisturizes, fills the wrinkles and plumps the lips
  • Black pepper oily extract – stimulates the tonicity of the blood circulatory system
  • Jojoba and Avocado oils – restores and protects against external factors; helps with hydration of the upper layers of the skin


  • Hydrogen peroxide –  whitens the teeth and removes external and internal spots
  • Sorbitol – whitening properties
  • Mint and lemon essential oils– breath freshener

I've kept Smile & Kiss in my purse for a few weeks now and I almost feel like I am becoming addicted. As per the instructions, I have been applying the lip side at least three times a day. Instantly my lips feel more plump, but soft and smooth. After eating, I apply the teeth whitening formula to my teeth and I have noticed my teeth becoming brighter. The only problem with being on the go is that after applying the tooth whitener, you have to rinse, so plan accordingly. This lip wand does what it says; whitens and brightens my smile.



Get Extreme Lashes Naturally with Talika Lipocils Expert.

I don't think I ever talked about my love for Talika's Lipocils, a naturally based eyelash enhancer. Let me sum it up to say that I used it for a few months late last year, noticed a major difference in the length and fullness in my lashes. So when the latest, new and improved version called Lipocils Expert arrived, I knew I had to try it out right away.

Not only did Lipocils Expert lengthen and fill in my lashes like before, my lashes are darker and more "hearty". Hearty as in thicker in individual lash and as in the amount. My lashes have seems to double in number. The need for multiple coats of mascara is just not there anymore. With most mascaras, one sweep over the top and bottom lashes make my lashes look, well extreme. Almost false-like. And it is all done with naturally plant derived actives.

Lipocils Expert will make a difference to your lashes in just a month. Doing so with no harsh medications or chemicals, thus it does not irritate in any way.

Talika says that Lipocils Expert is designed to:

  • Stimulate eyelash growth with botanical extracts like nettle, hamamelis, and apple
  • Increase lashes’ curling power with Polymers & silk proteins
  • Deepen the natural color of your lashes with Coleus Forskohlii
  • Protect lashes from sunlight and other environmental aggressors with Baobab leaf & sour orange extract
  • Re-enforce and protect eyelash root with anti-aging peptides

  • I am loving the applicator too. It has a sponge tip and mascara wand. First, you use the sponge tip to apply the serum to the base of lashes and then take the wand to brush it through lashes.

    The $55 price tag is well worth it for those of us craving naturally longer, thicker lashes. Pick it up online at or at retailers such as, Dermadoctor, Blissworld or Sephora.
