Creepy Cool: Crime Scene Pillows

These “CSI”-inspired pillows will, no doubt, make Grisham proud—they’re using crime scene evidence (splattered blood, DNA and fingerprints) as decor! Now all you have to do is scour the (couch) scene, collect the irrefutable evidence and find the missing pieces that will solve the mystery! Or not so much.

When Anna Says Red, You Go Red

We’ve all heard the stories of Anna Wintour casually suggesting something of a beauty change to a model or designer and theverynexthour said model or designer has put that piece of “advice” into effect. Well, word is that model Maggie Rizer (she was huge in the late ’90s/early ’00s and featured in campaigns for Calvin Klein, GAP, every country-version of Vogue, etc. … then her dad up and stole her millions to play the lotto—and lost), has heard from fashion’s end-all, be-all. Anna said that she’d like to see Maggie back as a redhead. Sure, casual comment. Except that it’s not at all casual. Keep reading »

Let’s Take A Little Tour Of ScarJo’s House!

Welcome to Scarlett Johansson‘s house, all! Recently, her Hollywood Hills estate was put up for sale—for those of you with $4.995 million rolling around in your pockets, this house could be yours! (FYI: She bought it for seven mill in ’07—ouch, housing bubble.) Click on for interior shots and a few more exterior photos—personally, I’m more into the outside photos. Is it just me or does the inside feel sort of “eh” to you? And that kitchen? Renovation ASAP, please!

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 I can barely make out her eyes through all the black! (And talk about making her eyes look smaller.) I think what she did here (or her makeup artist did, rather) was go with dual eyeliner. Basically, she started with a liquid, applied a line all the way around her eye, making it thicker at the outer corners and thinner at the inner corners and then came back with a shadow over top. And from the looks of it, the product has a little bit of shimmer in it too (are you seeing the wet-look there?), like the shadow in Stila’s Purrfect Eyes kit. My advice? If you are going with the double-dip of eyeliners, try it out first on just your top lid, then see if it’s really necessary to pile it on. Keep reading »

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 Rachel Zoe is getting in on the action! (Check out Chloe Sevigny, above; she’s a major orange lip fan.) So what orange lipstick/gloss should you pick? Try Make Up For Ever Lip Gloss #2, says Zoe. And for $12, it’s worth the beauty risk!

Got Acne? There’s An App For That (Almost)

In a time not very far away, your iPhone will be able to clear up your acne and help with wrinkles. Really. According to UK’s The Sun, Dr. Greg Pearson is developing an app that he claims will improve people’s skin by shining a special light on your face while you chat on the phone. The light is supposed to kill off bacteria and promote collagen growth. While it sounds like it could be a reasonable plan—derms have been using light technology for a while now to help acne plagued patients—I’ll believe it when I see it! [The Sun] Keep reading »
