Makeup companies tout lofty, unrealistic claims all the time. These include, but are not limited to … uh, well, almost everything they say? Working with beauty products all the time (and, let’s be honest, in my spare time, too) means that I don’t expect much from promises of “all-day wear” and a “flawless complexion.” There are some truly great products out there, but there are precious few that actually fulfill all, or any, of what they allege to do. So, with that said, I would like to personally address the woman who is suing Lancome over false advertising claims related to “24-hour” foundation. Rorie Weisberg, an Orthodox Jew from upstate New York, says the French makeup giant was lying when they said that their Teint Idole Ultra 24H foundation provides, yes, a full 24 hours of “lasting perfection.” Keep reading »

“I’m not like this genetically.”
— Shock! Awe! Donatella Versace admits at the Vogue festival that, unlike her pal Lady Gaga, she was not just born this way. True, she said as much in the context of using “tons of cream” and taking care of her skin and hair, but we can go ahead and read between the lines, right? But who even cares what her face looks like — despite her intimidating persona, Donatella is actually pretty rad, telling her star-struck audience at the event, “Right now, having you kids in front of me asking these questions, this is my proudest moment.” [Vogue UK]
There are a few things that every makeup-lovin’ lady needs to have in her arsenal. It’s sort of like the difference between romantic prospects and friends: bold lipsticks and punchy eyeshadows come and go, but your Holy Grail products are forever. The perfect foundation that matches your complexion exactly and makes it look flawless; the perfect concealer that magically causes every blemish or imperfection you might have to vanish on the spot; the perfect neutral shadow that makes your eyes look bigger and brighter… and of course, the perfect go-to lip color.
Generally referred to as “my lips but better” (or MLBB), the ideal go-to lip color does just that — it suits your skin tone and flatters your face better than a brighter, trendier shade, and it imparts color and impact in a way that a clear lip balm just doesn’t. You could also refer to this type of lip color as “nude,” but it definitely isn’t the generic pale, corpse-y beige that comes to mind. It’s your nude, and it’s different for everyone. So let’s get to finding yours! Keep reading »
Sometimes models off duty default to totally scruffy and unkempt. It makes sense: If you spend your days ensconced in fancy clothes and high heels, you’re probably gonna want to go casual in your private time. Not so for model and Rachel-a-like Erin O’Connor, who was caught leaving London’s Vogue Festival (we’re picturing funnel cake in Givenchy heels) in a (we think it’s) Marni skirt and turtleneck. She looks ready to stroll through a 1940s Italian city scene or something. In any case, we’re coveting that skirt. [Pacific Coast News]
HELLO HELLO. It’s the last day of April! Are we going to get some May flowers after all this April showers bullshit? One can only hope. May is also my birth month, so, you know. Get ready, or something like that. Come see what we’re wearing today, along with special guest Alex, our lovely video editor, whose documentary is premiering at Tribeca Film Festival tomorrow! If you’re in the area, go see it or die. No, sorry, I really can’t go around saying things like that.
Hey y’all, I just wanna give a shoutout to Zoe Saldana, who has been absolutely killing it everywhere she goes. Between two “Star Trek Into Darkness” events this week, and the MTV Movie Awards earlier this month, lady has been looking ahhhhhh-mazing. These looks are all seriously difficult to pull off, but she is Seriously Doing It. I can’t remember the last time I was this wowed by a star’s fashion prowess. Again: killing it.

We don’t know if it’s a case of teen angst or a latent desire to follow in mom’s (former) footsteps, but Madonna‘s 16-year-old daughter Lourdes Leon is a certified badass in the making. The teenager has shirked her famous mother’s strict, borderline puritanical upbringing in favor of cigarettes, piercings, handsome show-biz boyfriends, and now… green hair! Lola was spotted out in her hometown of New York City over the weekend showing off her new verdigris locks, and I have to say, I’m kind of into it. In fact, I had green hair myself when I was 16! So yeah, consider me 100 percent on board with Lourdes’s new look.
Plenty of celebs love themselves some unnaturally-colored hair, and green is a particular favorite. Check out similar looks on Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and more in the gallery above!
Hot damn, Ellen and Portia are a beautiful couple, aren’t they? My favorite thing about them is that every time they’re together, they both just light up–they wear their adoration for each other on their sleeve and I really admire that. OK, enough fangirl-ing about their relationship, let’s talk about their outfits! For the “Arrested Development” premiere red carpet (side note: OH MY GOD I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS ACTUALLY HAPPENING), Ellen chose a sleek gray suit while Portia vamped it up in a tight black dress and a funky pompadour. They both look stylish, happy, and confident, which is the very essence of “Well Played.” [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
