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 — have a good balm at the ready. We’ve got ten super rich, moisturizing options, at virtually every price point. Check ‘em out! Keep reading »

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, I was like, whaaaaaat? And then I was like, it’s Tuesday, live a little! Try it already! Keep reading »

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 Lotus Youth Cream is that product. An anti-aging face cream with a propietary Super 7 Complex, the Lotus Youth Cream works to minimize the signs of aging and make your skin feel all dewy and fresh. There’s a bunch of good-for-your-skin stuff in it, like maca root extract, which apparently speeds up cell turnover; lotus flower extract, which defends against free radicals; and blue-green algae, which preserves collagen. That’s the long answer to why you’d want to use this stuff. The short answer is, it makes your skin look luminous and beautiful and radiant. [$42, Fresh]

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 seen in my life. It was also $19, which is more than I usually spend on eye shadow. Still, the package claimed it was great for sensitive skin and eyes, and I’d heard rave reviews about Jane Iredale products, so I went for it. Read on to get the full scoop! Keep reading »

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 this winter is wreaking havoc on our complexions. Not only do we have to put up with the cold air and harsh wind outside, but once we’re safely contained indoors, we’ve got artificial heat sucking the life out of our skin. Not cool. If you’re in the same predicament, fear not — we rounded up 10 rich, revitalizing products that are guaranteed to get you looking springtime fresh, even in the dead of winter.

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 a good idea), I’ve found that many of them come in significantly cheaper mini forms, so I don’t have to sacrifice style for savings… and neither do you! Here are 10 of my favorite, no-fail beauty products that ring in at just $25 or under, perfect for your (and my) penny-pinching program. Keep reading »
