Zoe Kravitz Is The New Face Of Vera Wang Princess

It’s only fitting that Zoe Kravitz, the offspring of rock and Hollywood royalty, would be the spokesmodel for Vera Wang Princess perfume. It’s too bad she was photographed in that tragic wig. Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: Dior Lip Maximizing Gloss

We’re not entirely sure that Dior’s Lip Maximizer gloss actually made our lips look larger, but it did make them look gloriously shiny and leave us with a tingling sensation that we would like to believe meant it was working. The gloss claims that it will help reshape the contours of your lips in 15 days, but we’re a bit skeptical of that claim. They looked a little more luscious (we think…) for a short period of time, but the light pink lip gloss doesn’t strike us as having the stamina to create lasting Angelina Jolie Mouth. That said, $30 is a lot to spend on a lip gloss with dubious plumping abilities. But the color is that perfect mix of sheer and sparkly that won’t leave you looking like a hooker if you wear it during the day, so if you’ve got the money to spend, it’s kind of the perfect wear-it-whenever gloss, and the pretty packaging doesn’t hurt, either.

Ever Wonder What Michelle Obama Smells Like?

What does Michelle Obama smell like? Apparently, our first guesses of sunshine and warm apple pie were wrong. The First Lady’s signature scent has been revealed, and it’s “Love in White” by Creed. Keep reading »

Demi Moore’s Youth Extending Beauty Secret Revealed!

While most of us suspect Demi Moore‘s exceptional ability to seemingly grow younger-looking by the day has to do with scalpels and needles, she insists there’s a far more natural (yet creepier) regimen at hand: “I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy. These aren’t just swamp leeches though — we are talking about highly trained medical leeches. These are not some low level scavengers — we’re talking high level blood suckers,” she said. Highbrow indeed! We know leeches have been used in the medical field for years, but have no clue how they improve your complexion. In other beauty news, Moore will likely be the next to debut a celebrity line. She’s reportedly in talks with beauty giant Helena Rubenstein to develop a new product range. No word on whether blood-sucking worms will be utilized as key ingredients. [IOL] Keep reading »

Check Out Forever 21′s New Beauty Line

Continuing their obvious bid for complete and total retail domination, Forever 21 has expanded into beauty, because clearly they’re not satisfied simply sticking to fast fashion. The new collection, Love & Beauty, will launch on Nov. 8 and include lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. While the products surely won’t be Sephora-style quality, it’ll most likely be the cheapest and easiest way to try new beauty trends — a similar approach for many to their trendy clothing. If you spend $75 today, you’ll receive a free lip gloss to try … and hopefully you’ll love it enough to become a fan of the line. This is just the beginning of their expansion though, as the brand is planning on moving into the home goods sector as well. Like we said, total domination. [Forever 21] Keep reading »

Nail Art As Real Art

Finally, someone looks beyond the superficial value of manicures. Photographer Molly Sorno focuses her work on nail art, salons, and manicure culture. Her pictures make you realize that your nails say a lot about you—concentrate solely on them, and you start imagining the person neon airbrushed tips belong to. Sorno’s work is now on display at the Brooklyn, NY gallery Nefer/NFR along with other artists’ works that explore the concept of adornment. If you’re in the area, check it out! Otherwise, look to Sorno’s vision as proof that what you wear on the outside resonates culturally. (Just don’t go so far as to call yourself an artist when you’re getting dressed in the morning.)

Win This! Orlane’s New Absolute Radiance Set

We’re low-maintenance gals in these parts, but special events (parties, weddings, dates, etc.) call for a little something extra. Orlane’s new Absolute Radiance Set promises “Cinderella skin” in seven minutes, and you’d better believe we were intrigued. The kit comes with several applications of an eye serum and patches, a face mask you get to mix together all chemistry set-style, and a brightening face cream. We applied the products in the specific combination outlined in the included instruction manual, and it left us with refreshed, glowing skin that looked so divine we ended up skipping foundation altogether. We were stunned. In fact, it was sort of like seven minutes in heaven. [$200, Neiman Marcus]

WIN IT! We’re giving away five sets of Orlane’s Absolute Radiance Set, but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, Nov. 6 through Thursday, Nov. 12—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Pete Wentz Needs A Makeunder Intervention

Why hello there, Pete Wentz, glad you’re here. We have something rather important to discuss with you. It has come to our attention that you’re wearing far too much makeup, even if your intention was to make it “pop” on the red carpet. In fact, we’ve tolerated your guyliner ways for a long time now, but when you show up to the party wearing more paint than your girl and your name is not David Bowie, then that’s when you know you need to shut it down, my friend. The heavy pancake foundation (in the wrong shade for your skin tone we might add), the extravagant eye makeup, the shimmery lip gloss — it’s all too much to take in. Now go get yourself some industrial-strength makeup remover and get the hell out of here. Keep reading »

How To Get Pretty, Shimmery Shoulders

For some reason I’m always eying up womens’ shoulders. Unlike any other part of a woman, no matter what their size, shoulders always look sexy. And before you make a face, it’s not a pervy thing, I just think that it’s a seriously underrated body part. Haven’t we heard enough about legs and, jeez, boobs? So, imagine how pumped i was when I came across a post about how to achieve that luminous shoulder look. What’s better than bare shoulders? Shimmery ones. According to the girls at Glamour‘s blog, I should pay a little extra attention to my shoulders—not hours more, just a little bit. Basically, treat your shoulders like your face when you’re wanting a little luminosity: Hit the bits of your shoulders the sun would hit (your collarbone, the rounded bits of your shoulder, etc.) with a pearly body lotion like Scott Barnes’s Body Bling or even a little bit of the shimmer you use to highlight your face, like a Nars “The Multiple” stick in Copacabana. Good for the holiday party circuit, no? [Glamour] Keep reading »

Get Your Hard Candy Fix At Walmart

In August, we heard cult ’90s makeup brand Hard Candy was coming to Walmart stores at lower prices. Well, the time to paint your nails funky colors and wear matching jelly rings has arrived. Hard Candy lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, concealers, and, yes, nail polish, are available now. The products have retained their cute packaging and playful palette, but they’ve kicked the hefty price tag. Back when Hard Candy launched in the 1996, LA retailer Fred Segal sold bottles of pale blue polish for $18 a pop. These days, everything costs $10 or less. And, if you don’t live near a Walmart store, buy online — shipping costs just 97 cents. Needless to say, our nails will be painted forest green as soon as the postman delivers our order.
