10 Lip Colors That Won’t Scare Off Your (Or Any) Guy

As the kind of girl who leaves red lipstick stains on everything, everywhere, I have scared off more than a few men (and probably small children) in my day. There’s nothing more alarming to a guy than a slick red mouth that pretty much guarantees it’s going to end up all over you. Any other day of the year, I would advise you to pile on the MAC Lady Danger and join me in terrifying the penis-wielding population, but I suppose some changes must be made in the spirit of Valentine’s Day. For those who are married to their lipstick, but want to look just slightly more kissable this time of year, here are 10 subtle lip colors in moisturizing formulas to pump up your pout without sending your male counterpart, prospective or otherwise, running for the hills…

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 »

Makeup Bag: Keep Your Icy Cool This Winter

It’s always around this time of year that we notice our skin has taken a turn for the lackluster. We don’t know where to point fingers: the colder temperatures, the food, the drinks, the activities, or (most likely) some combination thereof? As it happens, it’s also around this time of year that our shimmery bronzers tend to seem a bit, well, out of place… so we’re taking a cue from the weather this season and abandoning the golden glitz in favor of icy touches and pearly glimmers. We’ve got the details on how to get that glow back: gentle exfoliation, heavy-duty moisture, and a few key products will help you look every bit the ice queen this winter.  Keep reading »

Here are just a few of the many reasons I wake up every day pissed off that I’m not Margot Tenenbaum: child prodigy, award-winning author and playwright, perfect bob and the face to pull it off, mink coat, wooden finger, cold, haughty aloofness, perfect eyeliner application, marriage to Raleigh St. Clair, verboten romance with hot brother Richie, affair with Eli Cash. She is my dream girl insofar as in my dreams, I am her. But you know who I think is super, super lame? Like, the lamest? Gwyneth Paltrow! She is cripplingly lame. I can’t even reconcile her acting ability with her actual existence because I’m just like, oh my god, Goop, put your Margot clothes back on already for Christ’s sake. Keep reading »

The beauty industry is kind of like Apple insofar as just when you think you’ve got your hands on the latest and greatest product, there’s an even better one already on the horizon. (Which probably explains why I refuse to upgrade my iPhone or MacBook until that shit is busted. I just can’t keep up!) Take BB cream, for example: the super-popular “beauty balm” went from being an Asian favorite made only by overseas brands (and available only on Amazon by questionably-named Korean retailers with 14-21 days shipping) to a ubiquitous formula marketed by every brand from Dior to Maybelline. At first, it was hyped as the be-all, end-all combination of primer, foundation, and concealer. It sounds rad in theory, but the actual product left something to be desired, as they tend to leave an oily finish and come in, like, two colors tops. Keep reading »

My lashes are stick straight and blonde, and I wish I was fine with that, but instead I have dedicated a significant portion of my time on earth to making them appear long, dark, and luxuriously curly. This pursuit has taken me to the brightly lit beauty counters of luxury cosmetic brands and the dark recesses of drugstore clearance racks. It has caused me to hyperventilate in front of the Sephora employee who told me that the Shu Uemura eyelash curler would no longer be carried in US stores (don’t worry, it’s online), and it has caused me to burn my cheek with the metal edge of said eyelash curler after heating it up with a hairdryer in college. Along the way I’ve learned a lot and found quite a few awesome products, but I’m always on the lookout for more. You can imagine my excitement, then, when I discovered Urban Decay’s Supercurl Curling Mascara. Did it live up to its name? Read on to find out… Keep reading »
