10 Makeup Palettes That Are Almost Too Pretty To Use

I’ll admit it: much of the reason I own so much makeup is because I’m a sucker for aesthetics. Glossy gold tubes, shiny lettering, minimalist sans-serif fonts… these are all variables that contribute to me forking over my debit card in yet another Sephora sin, but what really gets me is colors. When I open… More »


Finally, A Red Lipstick For Modest Pouts

Sadly — and please, get your hankies ready because this is a tearjerker — I was born with no upper lip. My bottom lip is modest, but the top lip is so thin it’s practically non-existent. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always seen lipstick as something that would only draw attention to… More »


7 Gorgeous Red Lipsticks & The Celebs Who Love Them

First things first: I never wear red lipstick. I have a fatal combination of lips with a tendency to chap and a complete destitution of desire to draw attention to myself, especially my damn face. I own a number of red lipsticks, all of which I have bought with the best intentions and a daydream of a… More »


Winter Beauty: 7 Products To Help You Weather The Cold

Oh, dichotomous winter. I love your pretty snow, your brisk air, your holidays… but I loathe what you do to my skin, my hair, my lips! You turn my most powerful (ahem) feminine assets from soft, smooth, and silky to dry, breaking, and brittle. What ever shall I do? … More »


The Perfect Red Lip

Unlike the vast majority of fashion enthusiasts, I wouldn’t call myself a Chanel obsessor. Though I covet old photos of Coco with a string of pearls and a cigarette, I refuse to idolize a Nazi spy, and Karl Lagerfeld is about as pretentious and boring as the bouclé suits the line is famous for. Many… More »

8 Pumpkin Beauty Products That Will Make You Want A Slice Of Pie

It’s that time of year again — pumpkin season! If you grew up in the suburbs like I did, you’ll know that those unmistakable gourds are impossible to ignore come October. They line nearly every doorstep, with or without the jack-o-lantern faces for which they’re known. I don’t think I’d mind if I never saw… More »


An At Home Manicure That Just Gels

I love having a manicure, but get bored at the nail salon, so I was thrilled about Red Carpet Manicure’s new At-Home Gel Manicure line. The line, which includes a LED light to help set your gel polish, gives you everything you need to do your own gel manicures at home. Why bother with gels? More »


Turning Your Brown Eyes Blue

Well, technically, I’m keeping my brown eyes brown (I like them that way) but want to experiment with lining them in blue. Nars’ larger than life long-wear eyeliner in “Rue Saint-Honore” should add some drama to my fall face, making my natural eye color pop. Cobalt here I come. … More »

Elemis’ new Spa at Home collection gives you literally dozens of ways to relax at home. Their… More »


Pink Parka Your Paws

Two of my guilty pleasures: pretty personal style blogs and nail polish. Often these two things go together, as I end up discovering nail polish shades I might not have considered upon the manicured hands of chic ladies whose looks I covet. Case in point: for the last few weeks, I have been trying to… More »


The Best Body Lotion You’ll Never Smell

Isn’t it the worst when someone in your office or home slathers on a pungent, overbearing lotion that invades your whole space? I think so too. That’s why I love Atopalm’s body moisturizer. It’s not that it’s totally scentless — I find totally scentless moisturizers very suspect — it’s just that the fragrance is so… More »


Tough Love For Rough Soles

You could never tell by the gleaming chip-free polish on my toes that there is a horror show happening on the soles below. Walking has been my main source of transportation for the last 10 years and I have the callouses to prove it. Trips to the salon soften things for a few days, but… More »


Cool, Calm, And Powdered

Embarrassingly, I have a little bit of a face glistening problem in the summer. Okay, it’s more of a full-on face sweating problem. Especially when the humidity hits. I shall worry about face sweat no more because all of my powder prayers have been answered with MAC’s new magically cool liquid powder. Not only does… More »


What’s Your Morning Routine?

Our morning routines are all so individuated and specific and weird. Like for instance, I can’t get my day started without spending at least 20 minutes in bed with my cats. It’s not my decision — it’s up to Pony and The Colonel (the cats, you know). I also NEVER eat breakfast at my house. More »


Stop Boob Sweat Now!

Time for some real talk. We love summer, but the bane of our existence come July is one thing — sweat. Specifically, sweat pouring from places our deodorant stick usually doesn’t see — under our breasts and beneath our derrieres. These curves come with a price — a damp, sticky one. One recent summer day… More »


Model Sues Estee Lauder Over Bad Photoshopping

We know that virtually every image we see in print has had a little Photoshop magic worked on it, but it’s easy to forget just how much. Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Caroline Forsling is here to remind us. She is currently suing Estee Lauder over an ad she appeared in for Origins Plantscription, an… More »


A Close (And Sweet-Smelling) Shave

I consider shaving my legs a necessary summer evil, and to that end, I’ve tried to make it as quick and painless as possible. Enter Eos’ line of sweet-smelling, very effective shaving creams. Eos can be used either in the shower or dry–and it works like a charm, while smelling great to boot. I especially… More »


Girl Skin Care In A Boy’s World

Last weekend, I stayed with a few of my dude besties at their house in Austin, Texas. In between eating tacos and marveling at the sheer number of terrible tattoos Austin has to offer, I went swimming and got some sun. Well, wouldn’t you know it, a house full of 20-something dudes didn’t have any… More »
