The Tatcha brand has been bringing traditional Japanese beauty products into modern times with its luxurious formulations and classic ingredients, and the newly launched Gold Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm ($36) is no exception. The squalene and camellia oil balm is the perfect balance of rich hydration without being too heavy or tacky. Plus, the thin sheet of 24-karat gold on top adds an element of decadence that founder Vicky Tsai wanted in honor of geisha she met with while researching the beauty benefits of camellia oil. When you dip your finger in, the gold melts into the balm. Trust us; you'll reach for this lightly scented, ultraluxe lip treatment again and again.
Summer is the perfect season to master your barely there makeup look, and the newest shades from Lipstick Queen are perfect for creating a subtle palette. The Chinatown Glossy Lip Pencil in Catalina ($20) is a sheer, soft pink that gives your lips a hint of natural color with a glossy sheen that's not over-the-top. The subtle pink shade is just the right hue to bring out the color that's already in your lips, which makes it work on all skin tones for a natural look. Plus, the chubby pencil makes it easy to apply — even without a mirror — and it comes with a made-to-fit sharpener. With a little BB cream, a coat of mascara, and a swipe of pink color, you're good to go.
The service, which can be performed on its own or as an addition to a facial, starts with am impurity-removing foamy cleanser. A walnut-and-sugar exfoliating scrub helps slough away dead skin, a collagen mask firms, and mushroom enzyme product helps to revitalize. You can even get a quick fuzz-busting lip wax with the treatment, which finishes with a hydrating lip balm and lip plumper. I tried the Fabulips service out at the San Francisco Bliss location, so read on for the review.

Considering I already feel like a superstar when I'm playing the Xbox 360 karaoke game Lips, a blinged out microphone could only be icing on the cake.
Oh and they are. The Crystallized Swarovski Lips Microphones are a pair of black and white crystal mics that will dazzle your fellow singers (after your voice does, natch). Of course, like most crazy fabulous things, they're limited edition and pretty pricey — $680.
Ridiculous, sure, but you have to remember — like Kelly Kapoor on a recent episode of The Office, you'll look like J. Lo.
