Send a Kiss on Veteran’s Day

kisses-lips-mdnIn honor of Veteran’s Day, tomorrow, November 11th, Cosmopolitan Magazine and Maybelline New York are partnering with the United Service Organizations (USO) to collect and deliver “Kisses for the Troops.”

There goal is to set a new Guinness World Record for most lip-print kisses collected in 12 hours on postcards to be mailed to our troops overseas.  For every kiss collected, Cosmo & Maybelline New York will donate a $1 to the United Service Organizations (USO), the designated charity partner.

Here’s how it works:

From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Cosmo will be traveling throughout New York City to collect kisses. Participants will be asked to leave their kiss mark (Maybelline New York will provide new ColorSensational lipstick)

Well that day has come.  According to sources from People.com say she was fired, however, Carrie Gordon, Rachel Zoe’s rep, would only confirm, “Taylor Jacobson is no longer with Rachel Zoe, Inc.”

In Taylor’s farewell email to her contacts she said:

“After four amazing years at Rachel Zoe Corporation, I’m saddened and exhilarated at the same time to announce my departure. After much thought and consideration, I have decided to take the challenging leap to go off and style on my own.” [Fashionista.com]

Compared to the average size, it’s huge and it only takes one coat for full coverage.  The brush is amazingly precise and makes the polish so easy to apply.  (Make sure when dipping the wand, you wipe the excess polish on the edges of the jar, otherwise you may find
