10 Lip Colors That Won’t Scare Off Your (Or Any) Guy

As the kind of girl who leaves red lipstick stains on everything, everywhere, I have scared off more than a few men (and probably small children) in my day. There’s nothing more alarming to a guy than a slick red mouth that pretty much guarantees it’s going to end up all over you. Any other day of the year, I would advise you to pile on the MAC Lady Danger and join me in terrifying the penis-wielding population, but I suppose some changes must be made in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. For those who are married to their lipstick, but want to look just slightly more kissable this time of year, here are 10 subtle lip colors in moisturizing formulas to pump up your pout without sending your male counterpart, prospective or otherwise, running for the hills…

Guess Who This Stylish, Angsty British Teen Grew Up To Be

Helena Bonham Carter kills it on the kooky front these days (it’s no coincidence that her initials alternatively stand for Head Bitch in Charge), but with her teased rat’s nest of hair and macabre goth-inspired wardrobe, it’s hard to believe that the prolific actress was once an adorably offbeat, doe-eyed British teenager in the ’80s. Her dark, otherworldly vibe holds up; don’t you just want to hang out and listen to Joy Division in her car after school? [Teenage Film]

Poor Jennifer Lawrence Got The Aggressive Spray Tan Treatment

Self-Tanner Tip
Use it to hide stretch marks! Read More »

Whoever is in charge of Jennifer Lawrence’s skin color (is it you?) went a little/a lot spray tan-happy on the poor girl before the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon, which left the Jen we know and love looking less like her peachy self and more like the Oscar statuette we hope she wins. She looks terribly uncomfortable, almost as if she’s trying to tell us, “You and I both know that I am not actually this brown.” And then! Jen showed up later in the evening at the Hollywood Reporter Nominees’ Night (on the right), looking wayyyy closer to her natural shade. I am left with the impression that she ran home after the first event and scrubbed herself silly to fade the color, to which I say: been there, done that. You never know what you’re gonna get with those spray tans, and there is a painstakingly fine line between bronzed and luminous and old baseball glove.

Get Your Color-Treated Hair Cleaner Than Ever

Hair Masks!
These 7 hair masks will save your winter locks. Read More »

We’ve all been there (or I sure hope so, otherwise this may end up being an embarrassing confession): you wash, rinse, repeat, condition, and style as usual, only to find that your hair is still looking less than squeaky clean. Product residue, environmental grime, and (ew) scalp buildup all contribute to the dulling and dirtying of your hair, especially around the roots, where these things tend to collect. When regular shampoo just won’t cut it, it’s time to bring in the big guns — a clear, super-cleansing formula that will leave no pesky particles behind. Unfortunately for the dry-haired and dye-loyal among us, these take-no-prisoners clarifiers can make hair a bit too clean, stripping it of both its natural oils and your hard-earned color. What’s a greasy girl to do? Reach for ColorProof ClearItUp Detox Shampoo, of course, a color-safe, sulfate-free (this is very important) detoxifier that cleanses and deodorizes the hair by way of a 100 percent vegan cleansing system that’s so gentle, you can use it every day. As someone who only washes their hair twice a week, when I do shampoo, it better be damn thorough; ClearItUp has earned itself a permanent front-and-center spot in my shower. [$29.95, ColorProof]

The fragrance, inspired by “the softness of baby skin, the freshness of baby breath, a mother’s sweet hug, [and] the first smile” will contain notes of citrus, honey, and melon. Now I’m hungry. Not for babies. [BuzzFeed]
