15 Totally Bogus Beauty Products

Does the skin around your eyes sag and cucumber slices and cold spoons just aren’t doing the trick? Don’t worry, wrinkle face, there’s a crazy, bizarre (and likely bulls**t) gadget for that!

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…

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?

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.

In Your Element

We’ve been huge fans of Elemis’ line of skincare products for awhile — especially their lime and ginger lotion, which gives you the effect of a tropical vacay when you can’t actually even afford to pay the rent. Elemis’ new Spa at Home collection gives you literally dozens of ways to relax at home. Their…

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…

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…

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…

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 doe…

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.

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…

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, a…

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…

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…

Perfect for my skin’s spring cleaning. Now I just need some warm weather so I can tan away my pasty…

Get Your ‘Do Super Straight

For the most part, we’re wash ‘n’ go gals, but occasionally we actually take the time to do our hair. On such occasions that we want to rock the stick-straight look, we depend on this hairdresser-approved flat iron to take us into Cher-circa-1972 territory. The ceramic plate iron heats up to five temperature settings and…

Fancy A Sexy Jell-O Bath?

Admit it: You have slightly shameful fantasies of swimming in unusual substances like pudding, champagne, Pinkberry, or whipped cream. (Or is this just us? Um …) Making one of our dreams come true is Jellybath Tub Soak, which, when added to your bath water, creates “a warm fluffy jelly that retains heat up to four…

Do Mousse Beauty Products Weird You Out?

Is it just us, or are mousse beauty products just a bit nasty? We were browsing Urban Outfitters’ new online beauty shop when we found DuWop’s Lipmousse, which is described as a “cross between a gloss and a lipstick” in which a “hydro-attracting powdered silicone absorbs water and swells, creating a mousse-like look and feel.”…

Beauty Test Drive: NARS Multiple Tint

Don’t let the bright pink color fool you, NARS’ new Multiple Tint makeup stick isn’t trying to leave you looking like a hooker after a rough night. In fact, unless you entirely over-swipe, the pretty burst of pink is so subtle that we dare anyone to even realize that it’s not just your natural glow.
