Choosing A Bronzer

Don’t let the summer pass your face by. Benefit’s new watermelon-inspired Bella Bamba collection will leave your face glistening like a piece of ripe, summer fruit. The 3D, brightening face powder illuminates cheekbones with shimmering gold undertones. It goes perfect with a tan, if you’ve found a way to acquire one. Or if you’re more of an indoors type of girl who fears sunburns (holler!), it creates the illusion of a summer glow. Pair with the sheer, scented lip gloss for a look that says “I’ve been sitting on the beach sipping fruity cocktails all day.” Which is a look worth aspiring to when you’ve actually been sitting in front of your computer sipping coffee all day. Ah, the magic of makeup. [$28 (blush) and $16 (gloss), Benefit]

I guess when you are middling famous you pretty much get to do anything that you want. Even if you are, say, Mischa Barton, who was last relevant some five years ago. I mean, it makes sense: I just found out that 50 Cent got to star in a movie with Robert DeNiro, which is equally as implausible as Mischa Barton having her own line of lip gloss. Because why? Who said, “You know, I’d really like to commemorate my fave lanky pseudo-lesbian from ‘The O.C.’ Marissa Cooper with her very own line of lip crap?”

Nobody. But alas, the Mischa Barton lip gloss empire was still birthed. Keep reading »

Weekend Project: DIY Strawberry Foot Scrub

Cinnamon Sugar Lip Scrub
Make your own lip scrub! Read More »

Wearing flip-flops and going barefoot whenever possible is a fun and refreshing summer tradition, but man, it makes for ugly feet. Why not treat your feetsies to a homemade strawberry scrub that will leave them soft, smooth, and smelling decidedly more delicious than sweat and sidewalk? All it takes is three ingredients–strawberries, olive oil, and sea salt. Just mix it up and massage onto your feet to thank them for all their hard work. [Homemade Wellbeing]

For The .2 Percent: The Most Crazy Expensive Skincare Products On The Market

One of my favorite hobbies is irresponsibly throwing cash, caution, and common sense to the wind, essentially handing off my dignity in return for high-end beauty products, but even my cosmetics-grubbing jaw drops at some of the prices on the stuff. Just the other day my very own father texted me to say, “Have you heard of La Prairie Cellular Cream Platinum? It’s $680.” I was like, “Step back, Dad. Don’t you know about Cle de Peau’s La Creme?” If you haven’t, let me fill you in: not only does the moisturizer itself cost $775, but they’re now producing just three crystal-encrusted 50-gram jars of the cream that will retail for $13,000. Seriously, who needs that shit? (Amanda Seyfried, apparently, as the ambassador of the brand.) You can’t just have the regular $775 cream, you need the crystal-encrusted one? Whatever, to each their own — if I had $13,000 to spare, I’d probably be buying jar #3 as we speak. Or paying a month’s rent on a two-bedroom brownstone with a backyard in the West Village, either one. Probably the brownstone. Anyway, Cle de Peau isn’t the only brand that goes a bit buckwild with its pricy offerings… here’s just a sampling of the most exorbitantly expensive skincare products money — a lot of money — can buy.

If you are unfortunate enough to be born with dry skin, your life will go something like this:

  1. Everyone from dermatologists to fashion magazines will tell you that you have to wash your face with Cetaphil.
  2. You will realize they are right, so you will wash your face with Cetaphil.
  3. This will get very boring very quickly and possibly not even work.
This was the story of my life. And then a lovely actress decided to try her hand at skincare and beauty products, price her line, called Nuance Salma Hayek, quite reasonably, and sell it as CVS … and change my skincare routine forever. Keep reading »
