Ever since I quit drinking coffee regularly, I’ve fallen victim to a very serious case of the 3 o’clock brain lapse. Every day around the same time I suffer the same symptoms: heavy eyelids, fuzzy thought process, 10 yawns per minute, a mind that wanders to visions of mattresses … and the only known cure for such a cognitive issue is a splash of icy water to the face. It’s a less than desirable proposal for this habitual makeup-wearer — as in, not happening. Luckily, Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir makes a pretty decent stand-in for when hovering over the sink is just this side of totally impractical. The spray is gentle enough so as not to be jarring, but it’s a welcome, refreshing blaster for that all-too-familiar mid-day haze, one that won’t disturb your makeup and even imparts a dewy, fresh glow to the most fatigued of faces … like mine.

The Perfect Purple Eyeshadow Palette

Sephora's moonshadow baked eye palette is very dramatic. Read More »

This lovely purple eyeshadow palette isn’t just easy on the eyes, it’s easy to put on your eyes too. Each color in the eye-shaped palette is sectioned off according to where it should be applied to your eyelid. There’s a dark purple for the lash-line, lavender for the lid, a shimmery white for just under the brow, and even a subtle pink shade to highlight the inner corners of your eyes. Just follow the format for a flattering–and foolproof–look. [$5, AVON]

Finnish beauty brand Lumene’s line of moisturizers and skin creams has all the usual bells and whistles — a built-in sunscreen and a luxurious, smooth feel with no greasy after-sheen. But its added secret weapon? Arctic Cloudberries. Native to Finland, cloudberries offer amazing age-defying benefits. Their seed oil protects and strengthens the skin, and the berries contain an extra high dose of Vitamin C, which make the skin look bright and radiant.  But what you really want to know is: Does it smell good? Of course it does! Fresh, clean and with a hint of berry fragrance. [$19.99, Drugstore.com]

Fall Head Over Heels For Lancôme Rouge In Love

BTD: Colorstay Lipstick
Winona loves Revlon's Colorstay Lipstick. Read More »

I love lipstick, possibly to a point of obsession and definitely to a point of monetary drain. The more luxurious (and French), the better — Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté, Chantecaille Lip Chic, Guerlain Rouge Automatique… be still, my beating heart. I maintain that the last testament to my sanity is the fact that I’ve held off on purchasing an exorbitantly priced yet allegedly unprecedented Tom Ford Private Blend (though the fateful day I make one my own is indeed on the horizon). I’ve never fallen in love with a Lancôme lipstick, but their brand new formula may just become my latest squeeze. The collection, intended to be supremely moisturizing and lightweight, comes in three categories: “Jolis Matins” are fresh and glossy for daytime, “Boudoir Time” promises high-impact brights and evening-appropriate offerings, and “Tonight Is My Night” claims the more sophisticated, intense shades for a lacquered effect. I can’t wait to get my hands on these — I plan on picking up 146B Miss Coquelicot, 322M Corail In Love, and 200B Lasting Kiss, which Julia Roberts wore this weekend to the premiere of her new flick. At $25, they aren’t exactly pocket change, but hey, they still won’t set you back almost $50 like a Guerlain or that elusive Tom Ford. If you’re a drugstore girl looking to delve into the world of luxury lipsticks, Rouge In Love is the perfect place to start. [$25, Sephora]

Blind ‘Em With Your Gleaming Grill

My mom often sends me texts alerting me to new beauty products I “need to try ASAP.” Often times, the sense of urgency is a tad overdone. But the S.O.S. to try Colgate Optic White was warranted. This toothpaste uses deep whitening technology to dramatically whiten your pearly whites in just one week, and more dramatically over time. The enamel-safe formula removes coffee, wine or whatever kinds of stains from the surface of your teeth. God, I sound like a toothpaste commercial. Blah blah blah BEST TOOHTPASTE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD. But … I swear!  My grill was gleaming after just one brush with the miracle paste. It was like my smile needed a sound effect. I’m off to go buy a lifetime supply. I suggest you do the same.

Doodle Those Digits

Bright Blue Polish
Electric blue nail polish is hot right now. Read More »

Amped to try some of this spring’s nail art trends? Get started with Sally Hansen’s nail art pen. This fine-tipped pen is as easy to use as a marker and opaque enough to only require a single coat. Play it safe with some easy yet colorful French tips, or go crazy with stripes, shapes, and patterns! Seriously, despite never having been artistically-inclined, even we found it just that easy to use. Now, which colors to stock up on… [$7.49, ULTA]
