I’ve been working on it for a long time, because I don’t want to put [just] anything out. I want it to be something that encompasses all the things I’ve learned and all the secrets I have. And it doesn’t have anything to do with needles.  With her reputation for glossy lips, time-defying ultra-flawless skin and the most enviable glow in LA, we’ve got our fingers crossed and high hopes.
