Nars Re-Releases Vintage Nail Polishes Named For Blockbuster Films

I feel as if I’m always on a quest for my next favorite nail polish. As someone who treats myself to a weekly manicure, seven days can seem like an eternity and I can get bored really fast. That’s why I let out a squeal when I first saw Nars’ “Zulu,” one of five vintage polishes from the Nars archives named after blockbuster films. Zulu is the true green I’ve been looking for and makes me long for corduroy and flannel plaid. If green isn’t your idea of an amazing nail color, the limited-edition collection also includes a gold called “Mash,” a silver named “Full Metal Jacket,” a bronze-y-orange called “King Kong,” and a royal blue dubbed “Midnight Express.” And $16 is an amazing price for something beautiful and vintage.

MAC’s Disney-Themed Collection Looks Kind Of Like The Kid Stuff To Us

When it comes to cosmetics, how important is the packaging to you? Are you likely to buy something just because it has something distinctive on it? Like, for example, MAC‘s new Disney-themed makeup collection, which features cartoon character designs of some of the empire’s villains like Cruella De Ville, the Evil Queen from Snow White, and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty. This is just our opinion, but to us, these products feel a bit like your normal MAC purchases simply re-packaged with new graphics. And we also kind of feel like from afar, pulling out an Evil Queen lip gloss from your purse might look like you’re lacquering up with the souvenir you got from your last Disneyland trip (or the souvenir you stole from your 11-year-old cousin’s makeup box). After all, regular Disney kid makeup (bottom lip gloss images) seem fairly similar, at least in the straightforward packaging and aesthetic. No? [Refinery 29, PartyCity] Keep reading »

Ben & Jerry’s Anti-Aging Ice Cream Will Be The Greatest Thing Of All Time

This has to be too good to be true: apparently, Ben & Jerry’s is working on developing an ice cream that contains anti-aging antioxidants. So now when you devour a pint of Chubby Hubby, you’ll think it’s OK because you’re helping out your skin. Except … really? This stuff is gonna be calorie-free, right? What? It’s not? (Fingers in ears.) We’re not listening! Can’t hear you! La la la la la! [Allure] Keep reading »

How To Style A Bouffant With Short Hair

Mad Men” has made me obsessed with the vintage bouffant hairstyle. While it looks like you need a lot of hair to achieve the super huge look, it’s actually not so much about the length of your hair as it is the volume, and how to create it. If you have chin-length hair like I do, and want to get the ’60s-inspired style, check out my DIY instructions after the jump! Keep reading »

Light Hair/Dark Eyes And Dark Hair/Light Eyes Are The Prettiest Combos

This morning on the subway, I couldn’t stop staring at the woman seated across from me. She’s one of those people who’s stunning, but you can’t figure out exactly what makes them so pleasing to look at. And then I solved the mystery—she was blond, I think naturally, but had super dark brown eyes. It’s a combination that’s pretty unusual, genetically speaking. This reminded me of my friend Sarah from elementary school, who had dark brown hair like me but bright blue eyes. I was always a little jealous of this. I started thinking about it, and have decided that the celebs I find the most beautiful tend to have this combo of dark hair and light eyes, or light hair and dark eyes. Maybe I should start rocking violet-colored contacts again, like I did in high school? Keep reading »
