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 They are at once super futuristic but also hopelessly outdated.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…

While I’ve personally never found any remedy that can mollify the sting, maybe you’ll have better luck. Check out these seven soothing products we recommend slathering all over in case you get burned big time.

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

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 o…

Makeup Bag: 5 Favorite Summer Hair Products

My hair, washed, dried, and left entirely to its own devices, is soft, fine, flat, slightly wavy, and so, so boring. It viscerally pains me to wear my hair in its limp, lifeless natural state, but I don’t always want crazy volume, either — I’m perpetually in search of a happy medium. I love to…

Makeup Bag: Facial Cleansing Wipes For Late Nights And Lazy Mornings

They aren’t the sexiest or most exciting beauty product — not by a long shot — but facial wipes are an absolute necessity. If you’re prone to late-night laziness or, um, unforeseen sleepovers, a pack thrown in your purse can mean the difference between a fresh face and eyeliner on your cheeks in the morning.

Makeup Bag: 8 Beauty Products That Remind Us Of Mom

Why would you care about the beauty products your mom uses? Because look at your mom! She looks great! She must be doing something right. We’ve picked some of the beauty products our moms — and probably yours — use. Take a look and go slap some of that cold cream on. …

Mirror, Mirror: I Stopped Using Shampoo

A little over a month ago, I stopped using shampoo. And, speaking as someone who has clearly never been in serious bodily danger, it felt like I was being very brave. Just a couple days, I told myself reassuringly. And then, when you look like a horrifying ball of dripping grease, you can do the

Makeup Bag: The Best Of Blotting Papers For Summertime Skin

There’s nothing sexier than a sweaty face in the summertime, am I right? As the self-proclaimed Sweatiest Person of All Time (no wonder everyone wants to date me!), I’m kind of an expert when it comes to the best methods of controlling oily skin when the temperatures rise. First things first: as little clothing and…

6 Pinterest-Approved Ways To Organize Your Makeup Stash

If the eyes are the windows into the soul, then makeup bags are the windows into clutter shame.  Unfortunately, I’ve got lots: from my closet to my dresser drawer to my bathroom to on top of my dresser, my makeup takes up more per-square-inch space than I do.
There’s got to be an easier way…

Poll: Do You Use The Same Beauty Products As Your Mom?

I inherited a lot of things from my mother (for starters: high cheekbones, bullheadedness, a taste for afternoon naps and all things fermented grape), but my love of beauty products wasn’t one of them. It’s actually more likely that my propensity towards packed bathroom cabinets and overflowing shower ledges was directly derived from my father,…

This British Beauty Brand Is One To Watch

As The Frisky’s resident beauty hoarder, I try a lot of different skincare products. Not that I’m complaining (at all, whatsoever): skincare is kind of my thing, and I will put literally anything on my face — provided I’ve given the ingredients a once-over to make sure I approve, of course. Very rarely, however, doe…

Lotion For The Lazy Girl

Now you really have no excuse not to lotion up after the shower. Tired or lazy or in a rush? It doesn’t matter. Vaseline’s Spray & Go Moisturizer makes the lotioning process foolproof. Just aim and spray. This is such great news for that spot on the middle of my back that I can’t reach.

Pucker Up: The Best Lip Treatments And Balms At Every Price

Is this winter weather killing your lips? Because it’s seriously killing my lips. Last night, as I tried to catch up on “Downton Abbey” I got super distracted by how cracked my lips were and had to pause and find my balm (it had slipped under the bed). Don’t do what I did though –…

Beauty Dare: Would You Wear Green Eyeliner?

I love makeup, but my makeup routine? Fairly standard: A bit of the smudgy black eyeliner and a liberal swabbing of blush and bronzer to mask my hideously pale face and I’m set. So when Aveda sent me their new Petal Essence Eye Definer in Jade Vine in advance of its February 10 release date,…

Skin Care That’s The Fountain Of Youth

As a beauty and style editor, I get to try lots and lots of skincare products. You should see my bathroom at home (actually, you shouldn’t see my bathroom at home, it’s a hoarder’s paradise). There’s a lot of good stuff out there, but rarely do I find a product that’s legitimately great. Fresh’s new…

Beauty Test Drive: Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow In “Violet Eyes”

I was playing with makeup at the Jane Iredale display the other day when I noticed a pretty purple eye shadow lurking behind the BB cream. I opened the tester and smeared a bit on the back of my hand, and lo and behold, it was the most perfect, shimmery lavender color I’d ever see…

Makeup Bag: Rejuvenate Dry, Dull Winter Skin

Is it just us, or is January the most painfully slow month of the year? We’re feeling optimistic towards February, because after February comes March, and you know what March means — <i>spring</i>! But back to right here, right now; we’re trudging through the next couple of weeks, and we’re the first to admit that…

Makeup Bag: The Best Beauty Buys $25 And Under

I don’t know about you, but my New Year’s resolutions have a lot to do with being a little more frugal. It hurts to part with my crazy-high skincare and makeup budget (seriously, what’s wrong with me?), but this is something that must be done. Rather than go cold turkey on my favorite products (never
