New Fragrance Alert – Cheeteau by Chester

Pervasive, fermented passion. The smell of hunger.
The new Cheeteau by Chester. It’s dangerously cheesy.

When I named Bionic Beauty, I never imagined there would be actual “bionic” makeup!  Women have applied makeup in a similar fashion for hundreds of years using brushes, fingers, sponges, cotton, and natural fibers.  Since 1930 women have had the option of permanent makeup – a tattoo that is applied to your face, eyes, or lips – but the process never grabbed mainstream attention until the 1980s.  The drawback of tattoo makeup is the lack of changeability.

Makeup needs a game-changer!  Turns out, it is here. Now.
Pax Color Change Cosmetic Implants - color changing permanent makeup

Blue Sun Research Group has developed Pax Cosmetic Implants. My best friend and research director at Blue Sun Research Group, Dr. Kate Jones, sent me an overview of their new permanent makeup cosmetic implants.

Pax implants are placed under the facial dermis during a quick, outpatient procedure and allow a woman to alter makeup colors on her cheeks, eyelids, and lips through a wireless interface. Basically you can change your makeup look from smokey eye with a nude lip to old Hollywood glamor in just a few minutes!

Pax, short for G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate, uses micro-dermal transduction of bio-luminescent liquid crystals to produce color visible on the skin’s surface. Currently there are 147 doctors in the United States authorized to perform Pax Cosmetic Implants; but the amount of doctors performing the procedure should be widespread by late October 2013.

To top it all off, this summer you’ll be able to change color on-the-go, with the Pax smart phone apps!

Will you be visiting your doctor to get the new Pax Cosmetic Implants?  And how often do you think you’d change your makeup through the day?

And after this leap forward, what’s next in the world of makeup?

Stay bionic y’all,

Pax Cosmetic Implant side effects can include: redness, itching, swelling and discomfort at the implantation site(s); permanent or random color changes of the skin; personality changes such as aggression, akathesia, and insomnia; abnormal growth of the first bicuspids; excessive hunger; swelling of the pituitary gland, adrenal gland, and ears; and restless leg syndrome (RLS).

Spotted at CVS – Awesome Kiss Nails!

by Bionic Beauty on February 24, 2014 · 0 comments

On a jaunt to my local CVS drugstore this week, I spotted these completely awesome glue-on nails by Kiss.

The complete collection:
Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails - 3

And a close up of my absolute faves:
Kiss Gel Fantasy Nails - 2

I am DEFINITELY going to recreate those rainbow-ombre-sparkly-goodness nails as soon as I can! I’m figuring I’ll custom mix some pastel colors with my Gelish top coat – that should get the job done.

Which set is your favorite?
