My pale, winter skin had set in, and I needed to update my go-to concealer for a lighter shade. Instead of purchasing the same solution, I opted to try the well-reviewed Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. This product claims to nourish skin with jojoba and honey, while providing waterproof, crease proof, and transfer resistant coverage. Ha, yeah right. As someone who has struggled to find concealer to cover dark under eye circles, I was skeptical. If this product could provide the coverage I desired, the nourishing powers would simply be a bonus. Keep reading »

Pucker Up!

For those of us who generally ignore the fact that we have lips, the idea of wearing lip color can be intimidating. Even if you have the whole lipstick color scheme down to a science, sorting through the lip aisle can be daunting. Glosses, crayons, and stains. Oh my! (You should see how many different lipsticks we receive here daily!) Everyone wants a glamorous starlet smile and why the hell not?

In our new video series, “I Want That,” Rachel and I pucker up and give our honest opinions on some of this summer’s hottest lip products. Watch above!

Nipple Crayons, Nose Straighteners & More: 11 Amazing & Terrifying Beauty Products From Japan

Japanese beauty products are wild, man. They are at once super futuristic but also hopelessly outdated. Like if Betty Draper met “Tron” or something — you’d be wearing a crazy space suit but worried about “reducing” and “slimming your figure.” I’m totally fascinated by these things, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I pretty much would buy all of this crap if my budget allowed. Who doesn’t want a $4,000 animatronic seal, you guys? Or a bizarre medieval face-stretching device? This stuff is the coolest!

Check out 10 of our favorite bizarre beauty products from the Japan Trend Shop above.

Beauty Test Drive: Sephora’s Express Self-Tanning Kit For Face And Body (Video!)

LET'S GET TAN!

You know who I blame for my never-ending pursuit of the perfect tan? Francine Pascal. The author behind the widely popular ’80s teen/tween book series, Sweet Valley High, instilled me with the belief that to be beautiful meant I needed to be bronzed. After all, Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, the most beautiful 16-year-old twins on the face of the earth, had “sun-streaked, silky blonde hair,” “blue-green eyes the color of the Pacific” and, of course, “sun-kissed skin.” I couldn’t do anything about the blue-green eyes, but for years I “chased the blonde dragon,”  which I finally gave up after a hairdresser finally told me platinum hair didn’t look good on me. But thanks to SVH and being California born and bred, I’ve remained pretty obsessed with having a glowing tan. During the summer, I lay out every weekend, though I realize that even with a high SPF, this isn’t the wisest idea. Thankfully, a recent trip to the dermatologist confirmed I am skin cancer-free. (I’m lucky — for about six months in college I went to the tanning salon once a week. Big no-no!) And I always emphasize the tan I’ve got with bronzer — for awhile, I had the boneheaded notion to use bronzer meant for Black women.

Now that I’ve lived in NYC for nearly 12 years, I’ve gotten some distance from my California-roots and have begrudgingly let go of my desire to be tan 365 days a year; during the winter, I leave my naturally fair skin well enough alone (though I still use a little bit of bronzer every day). But summer is on its way and in less than a month I’m headed to Nicaragua for vacation. I need a (fake) base tan! You know, something close to the subtle, sun-kissed glow of Snooki’s knee-caps. Luckily for me, Sephora sent over their Express Self-Tanning Kit For Face And Body and I rushed home to try it last night. Let’s review… Keep reading »
