The fine people of The Cut tested Bethenny Frankel’s SkinnyGirl products and I’m incredibly shocked by their findings.

I’m still not convinced the second photo wasn’t photoshopped, even though it says “No photoshop was used.” Take a look for yourself…


Obviously she doesn’t really need any type of undergarments to start with, but the end result is pretty astounding.

The young lady in the photos has the Alluring Shaping Bodysuit on: $40.00

They also gave a run down on SkinnyGirl’s beauty products:

(Clockwise from top) Tinted Daily Moisturizer  Thankfully scent-free, rubs in smooth, and leaves a light shimmer.

Vitamin C Face Scrub  Smells like strawberry-flavored Sour Straws but exfoliates like a handful of wet sand. It contains shea butter, which leaves skin feeling soft.

Energizing Lip Shine  A bit sticky and sweet, almost like honey, without calories.

Body Shimmer  Great, if you like your skin more shiny than shimmery, with an indistinguishable color change, and a greasy residue.

Cool Your Feet Spray  Like peppermint mouthwash, for your feet.

Detox Face Mask  Practically odorless, soothing, and probably most effective hangover cure when used after the Margarita Bath Collection.

Do you use SkinnyGirl products?

If you haven’t heard of Birchbox, it’s a beauty box that you can subscribe to in order to recieve “deluxe samples”.

There are three options: $110 for 12 months (one free month)

$10 per month, or a gift birchbox with 12, 6, and 3 month options.

I thought I’d give it a go after seeing some of the things people got, and you can cancel at any time.

I wasn’t exactly expecting wonderful, full-size products, but when it finally came today, I was extremely disappointed.

What I got, in detail:

-Color Club nail laquer in He Loves Me

-Harvey Prince Ageless scent

-Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint

-Orofluido Beauty Elixir

-Stila Smoky Eye Card

-‘Bonus’ Tea Forte skin-smart teas

As you noticed, they are all very small samples. Hopefully, I’ll actually be able to sample them. Take my suggestion and skip Birchbox. Save your money.

*More to come when I try the samples!

Actress, singer, and Weight Watchers spokesperson belter Jennifer Hudson has gotten even thiner, apparently down to a size zero. There’s no denying that the star has come miles from her previous weight, but many are skeptical as to if Hudson is in fact a size zero. What do you think? Do you think she’s at an unhealthy weight and should be a bit more curvy, or looks better than ever and should maintain a weight that makes her happy?

In Chicago earlier this week for President Obama's birthday.
