Urban Outfitters Mood-Changing Lipstick Takes Me Back To Childhood

When I was in sixth grade, I bought a lime green mood-changing lipstick for $1.25. It painted my mouth a heinous hot pink. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup at the time, but I think my mom let me wear it as a punishment because it was so horrible.

So you can understand my apprehension when I read about Urban Outfitters‘ new mood-changing lipsticks. The five pastel shades are supposed go on extremely sheer in varying degrees of pink and leave lips moisturized. All that being said, I’m still having a difficult time thinking of Urban as a beauty emporium. Would you try mood-changing lipstick? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

Things We’d Rather Do Than Attend A Gwyneth Paltrow-Coldplay Concert

We heard that Gwyneth Paltrow will be singing a duet with husband Chris Martin from Coldplay on New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas and shuddered. We know that Gwyneth’s really stoked to be singing in her new country-fried movie “Country Strong,” but yeah, no. Their combined level of self-righteous GOOP-iness is frighteningly high, and we can’t think of anywhere we’d rather NOT be than a Gwynnie/Coldplay concert.

In fact, we’ve created a list of all the things we’d rather do than attend that concert. Check it out after the jump. Keep reading »

“The Dirty Girls Social Club” Author Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez Alleges Racist TV Adaptation Of Her Book

Most authors would die to see their book made into a movie or TV show. But not Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez — not anymore. The author of The Dirty Girls Social Club got ahold of a script based on her book and was shocked to see that: 1) all the black characters were removed and changed to be of other races, and 2) all the Latina characters are sexually promiscuous, even described as “sizzling.” Seeing The Dirty Girls Social Club adapted on TV, she said, now “holds zero appeal for me.”

“The Dirty Girls Social Club,” in development with NBC, will be written by Luisa Leschin for Ann Lopez’s Encanto Productions (also known as Ann Serrano, as she is splitting from comedian George Lopez). Over a year ago, Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez optioned the rights for her book to Lopez, who, with Alisa’s help, got a development deal with NBC. But the script adaptation she covertly saw when a “no one” within the company leaked it to her was so racist, sexist and overall offensive that Alisa wrote on her blog today, “I’d rather no show get made than to have my name attached to Luisa’s bastardizations.” Keep reading »

Do You Have A Strange Addiction?

We are super excited about the new TLC show “My Strange Addiction.” I mean, a woman addicted to eating toilet paper? Sure. And it got us thinking: Do WE have any strange addictions that we’re not admitting? After the jump, Frisky staffers reveal their strange addictions. And no, being addicted to staring at Ryan Gosling’s face does not count.

And don’t forget to tell us what your strange addictions are. We won’t judge. Keep reading »

A First Look At Rachel Bilson’s New Movie, “Waiting For Forever”


It’s good to see Rachel Bilson again. Her new movie, “Waiting For Forever,” a tale about two childhood sweethearts, looks like it could be super good. While the boy moves away, he stays obsessed with the girl all the way up to when they’re reunited in their 20s. So is this movie going in a “Mother, May I Sleep With Danger” direction? Or will it take more of a romantic twist? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. [NY Post] Keep reading »
