We all could use a wintry nail polish to not just carry us through the holiday season, but also to perk up our fingers and toes in the dark, cold months ahead. Burgundy is one of our fave colors: It’s as pretty as red, but not so predictable. L’Oreal Paris will donate $3 of every bottle of “Woman of the Year” sold, to benefit Dr. Hawa Abdi, a Glamour Women of the Year Fund Honoree. For 20 years, Dr. Abdi has been providing food, shelter and medical care to women and children escaping violence in Somalia. (You can learn more about her work at DHAF.org.) Giving back and looking glam: how beautiful is that?
I don’t deviate too far from my daily skin care regime of washing with a benzoyl peroxide face cleanser and applying a prescribed MetroGel. I’ve found what works for me and I intend to stick with it until it no longer works for a while. But like most women obsessed with skin care, I know the benefits of a good face mask and recently tried the emerginC Scientific Organics Phytocell Detox Mask. Keep reading »
It’s day 22 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge, which means there’s only about a week left, and things are looking good. I’ve been using Karin Herzog‘s Dynamic Duo Anti-Cellulite Kit for about three weeks, and it seems to be working. By the way, at the end of my experiment, we’ll be offering a deal on the Herzog products, so you can try them yourself.

In anticipation of the release of her third LP, Let Freedom Reign (out today, Nov. 30), Island Def Jam recording artist Chrisette Michele let a bunch of bloggers pick her brain last night at an event hosted by the Carol’s Daughter store in Harlem. We all know she’s an extremely talented singer and musician (you know, one who actually has a voice and isn’t about gyrating for attention), so what I really wanted to know were Chrisette’s style and beauty preferences. Find out how she gets the power to voice her thoughts and why the reaction to her natural hair was annoying, after the jump. Keep reading »
We’ve spent much time and money waxing, tweezing, and threading the hairs that grow between our two eyebrows (and we imagine so have you). But this process, it turns out, isn’t shared by all women in the world. Over in Tajikistan (a small country just north of Afghanistan), women pride themselves on their full-grown brows as a mark of beauty. And for those who don’t naturally have pronounced unibrows, one can easily purchase pigmented herbs to color in the space, much like an eyebrow pencil. Keep reading »
And so we return from the holidays for another edition of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge. Nothing says, “Bring on the cellulite!” like the holiday season, really, what with all the binge eating, the fatty foods, and the lolling about on the sofa. Prior to Thanksgiving, I was reporting great results from the anti-cellulite creams I’m using for a month. Did the results hold up? Find out. Keep reading »
