I’m super into the dark lip trend that’s going on right now, but with my fair complexion it’s hard to find a color that doesn’t make me look like a vampire. When TopShop sent us some of their new fall/winter lipsticks, I spotted a burgundy color called “Wicked” that I knew I wanted to try. READ MORE »

Sophie and I recently paid a visit to Yotel in Manhattan to check out the quirky hotel chain’s new nail polish collaboration with Habit Cosmetics. Habit is known for their chemical-free approach to nail care, and their Yotel collection is no exception. The polish is vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and 5-free. And, it turns out, it’s… READ MORE »

When I first got my hands on a bottle of Nails Inc. Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat, my first question was why anyone would even care whether their nails were matte. The matte trend has come around several times these past few years, but it never really made any sense to me. Most of the… READ MORE »

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I’ve found the best hair product of the year for ladies with limp locks, like myself. I’ve always had pin straight, heavy hair, which means it goes flat within 30 minutes after a blow dry. Not anymore. Before I went out this weekend, a friend of mine told me I needed… READ MORE »

We’ve already tested the Eylure line of false lashes once, in a controlled, relatively stable, indoor environment. Still, after Sophie’s Beauty Test Drive, I was inspired to give them a whirl myself. Sure, these things look great when you’re sitting in your apartment, straightening your hair and paging through Seamless, but I wanted to try… READ MORE »

I may have a love/hate relationship with Taylor Swift, but if there’s one thing we have in common, it’s loving a bright red lip. So, when I heard that a new premium beauty line (with over 100 lip products!) became available exclusively at CVS/pharmacy, I went on the hunt for an affordable and kickass red… READ MORE »

Who doesn’t love a little glam? I certainly do. So when I was given the opportunity to Beauty Test Drive a pair of Eyelure False Lashes, I wasn’t going to pass it up. There were hundreds of pairs to choose from (including these dramatic falsies which Sophie tried out!), but I was immediately drawn to… READ MORE »

Have you ever noticed that when you overdo it in the sun, your skin becomes crazy sensitive? Some of your regular lotions feel like rubbing alcohol or make you feel like you’ve been standing over a deep fryer? My mom swears by egg whites. She will chase you down with raw egg and insist on… READ MORE »

Kim Kardashian’s face is a masterful work of art. Her cheekbones are always high and tight and the way the light plays off the ridges is mesmerizing. I realize that it is insane to want to look like a celebrity that has a retinue of makeup artists and humans to blot her every shiny spot… READ MORE »

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening right now and, like many major sales, the good stuff goes fast. In particular, anything that says limited edition, exclusive, or free gift with purchase.  The first area to be ransacked is the beauty department. Ever wonder how some women have 20 free makeup pouches and a never-ending supply… READ MORE »

Somehow I managed to enter my third decade on Earth without ever having tried a cat’s eye with gel eyeliner before. Of course I’d worn eyeliners — browns, golds, even blues — but something about that thick, black cat’s eye intimidated me. I thought you needed to have that “cool girl” look, like the author… READ MORE »

I love silver and I love gold, but I rose gold is my absolute favorite. There’s something so elegant and princess-like about the pinkish metallic hue that’s not too flashy, but is still classically pretty. When I heard about Bite Beauty’s new Agave Lip Mask Champagne which has a rose gold pearl tint, I had… READ MORE »

The neutral nail color trend, AKA mannequin hands, is returning this fall. Marc Jacobs’ Enamored Hi-Shine Lacquer in 9 to 5 is part of Marc’s exclusive runway nail polish collection and promises opaque coverage and high shine. Last weekend, I attended a wedding and didn’t want my nail polish to compete with my brightly-colored, graphic-patterned… READ MORE »

I loooove the smell of coconuts. Just a whiff takes me back to the beach where sunscreen and pina coladas are plentiful. So when I heard that Yes To launched a line of Yes To Coconut products, I couldn’t wait to try their lip balm and lip oil that would (hopefully) leave me tasting coconut… READ MORE »

I know the idea of $32 blush must make some people scream. How could anyone possibly spend that much money on makeup? But I have a ringing endorsement here: Laura Mercier’s new Bonne Mine Stick Face Color stays put all day long. It doesn’t sweat off in July’s sweltering humidity, it doesn’t get eaten up by… READ MORE »
