Beer-Flavored Lip Gloss Is Very, Very Real

The video above is typical beer company fare—hot young thing applies beer flavored lip gloss, guy plants one on her because, well, bro, she’s got beer on her lips. Is there a better way to get guys to make-out than put an alcoholic beverage on your lips? Clearly not, according to Heineken, at…

When Eyeliner Crosses The, Er, Line

What are your thoughts on Julianne Moore’s eyeliner here? Va-va-voom chic or just too wacky witch? I can’t decide. On one hand, she totally played her makeup cards exactly right—she went big on the eyes and muted the rest of her face. On the other, I just can’t seem to get past the fact that…

Try This Alternative To Red Lips

Want to break out of the red lip box? So do I. I’m sort of over it (or at least over telling you about it). Today, I’m all about bright orange lips for spring—well, bright orange-with-a-hint-of-red lips, that is. They achieve the same wowsa-look-at-her-lips reaction, which were all over the runways for spring, and now…

Sure, you take one look at most supermodels and assume they roll out of bed, throw clothes on and generally look gorge by virtue of being, well, them.

2 More Things Found In Your Makeup Bag That’ll Kill You

We’ve already covered Dr. Oz’s finding on how lip gloss ain’t exactly your friend when it comes to your health (petroleum jelly is a byproduct of oil drilling, and when you spread it on your lips, you end up eating it, which is essentially the same as drinking gasoline, or so he claims), but what…

Hair Model Citizen: Beyonce’s Hair Bling

After posting yesterday’s sleek Grammy hair photos, I noticed something when I zoomed in on Beyonce’s hair—it had sparkly strands running through it! Now, after much tireless hair research, I’ve finally ascertained that 1) I’m not seeing things that don’t exist, and 2) Her hairstylist did, in fact, pump up her hair with loads of…
