Now Your Hands Can Be A Coloring Book

One of the saddest parts of being an adult is the lack of opportunities to use crayons, which is why I’m so stoked about this pack of Crayola nail polish, which includes eight shimmery colors in miniature bottles. It would be such a fun addition to a very grown-up cosmetics collection. Now I just need… More »


Duchess Kate Wears Too Much Eyeliner But I’m Obsessed With Her Anyway

When Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, isn’t all glammed up for events, I think she is so freakin’ adorable. Is that disrespectful to say of a future princess? I just mean that she looks so relaxed and smiley, like a fun normal girl with exceptionally shiny, voluminous hair, that I want her to be my best… More »


The CCIC Revokes Their Leaping Bunny From A Number Of Major Cosmetics Brands

The Leaping Bunny is the universal symbol of the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC) reserved for brands and products strictly not tested on animals at any time during their preparation. As of the past couple of months and continuing through today, a number of companies that clearly took a stance in opposition to… More »


This Bottle Of Nail Polish Costs $250,000 And I Don’t Want To Live On This Planet Anymore

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the most expensive nail polish in the world: Azature’s Black Diamond. The shimmery black formula contains 267 carats of crushed diamonds, and–yep, you read the headline correctly–one bottle will cost you $250,000. The other day I spent $12 on a bottle of nail polish and felt a little guilty and self-indulgent,… More »


Rae Cosmetics Brings Some Pretty To Your Early Morning Workout

My favorite sport has long been surfing the web, preferably on a bed or chaise lounge, but rumor has it that such a sedentary lifestyle might not actually be the best thing for your body. So don’t laugh, but lately I’ve been making more of an effort to get off my lazy ass and actually… More »


Beauty Cues: Jaime King Keeps Things Fresh With A Focus On This Season’s Bright Matte Lips

The Television Critics Association’s Summer Party is underway as we speak, and the brightest young stars of Showtime, CBS, and the CW are turning out for the occasion. To my delight, this guarantees beauty fodder en masse, and the fresh-faced ladies who regularly grace the small screen have not been known to disappoint. Jaime King… More »


Beauty Files: Bare-Faced Beauty

In the world of runway and celebrity beauty, the term “bare-faced” doesn’t actually mean a face that’s, well, bare. In fact, its real definition is much to the contrary — it’s a face full of makeup that imitates the look of flawless naked skin, the reality of which very few people can lay claim to. More »


Beauty Cues: Get Rachel Weisz’s Look On The Cover Of Marie Claire UK

Rachel Weisz is so beautiful it’s stupid, and I think much of her allure has to do with the fact that she lacks the eerily perfect symmetry of most Hollywood faces — she has a really unique, almost strange look to her that is beyond compelling. After all, Daniel Craig put a ring on it,… More »


Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate Will Spare You $200+ And A Lot Of Shame

Taking proper care of your skin can be costly, that’s for sure, but there’s no reason you should have to empty your pockets for it. If you’re tempted by the restorative perfecting promises of overnight treatments like La Mer The Regenerating Serum, $260, but find the price not quite as crush-worthy, look no further than… More »


Teens Still Can’t Seem To Get Enough Of The Black Eyeliner

Julie teen covered all of the teen fashion from the Teen Choice Awards yesterday (my best-dressed pick? T. Swift), but when I took a look through the photos from the event, I saw one thing in common with almost every female attendee: black eyeliner, and lots of it. I think even Justin Bieber had some… More »


Helmut Red Is An Oh-So-Appropriate Tribute To A Legend

Helmut Newton is inarguably one of the most prolific fashion photographers in history. His body of work, which during his life was a mainstay in high-end publications like Vogue Paris and Harper’s Bazaar, is instantly recognizable world-over. Nudity, overt sexualization, and erotic fetishistic subtexts stylized expressively in black and white are the hallmarks of a… More »


Makeup Bag: 10 Shimmery (Not Glittery!) Products To Light Up Your Summer Look

The dividing line between shimmer and glitter is seemingly modest, but boy, is there a gigantic difference between the two (let’s just say glitter is kind of like shimmer’s trampy sister). There’s a time and a place for everything, but when it comes to your makeup this summer, subtle shimmer is the way to go:… More »


Karl Gets Kreative With Shu Uemura To Announce The Birth Of Mon Shu Girl

Well, that was quick! A little over a month ago, my personal Jesus, Karl Lagerfeld, announced plans to consummate the love that we’ve always known existed between him and Japanese beauty brand Shu Uemura. Karl’s been known to use Shu products in an unorthodox way: rather than sketch out his sublime designs for Chanel in… More »


Get The Look: Mila Kunis Brings The Heat In “Interview” Magazine

Mila Kunis is a force to be reckoned with: she’s the rare celebrity, or even human being (!), who is all at once beautiful, hilarious, intelligent, ballsy, self-deprecating, honest, and humble — at least, she appears to be all of those things. (Who said girls couldn’t be gorgeous and sidesplittingly funny? Oh yeah, that was… More »


“Into The Gloss” Is Poised To Become The All-Inclusive Mecca Of Beauty Addicts Everywhere

As resident beauty fiend among beauty fiends (my product collection has surpassed hoarder status and shows no signs of ever stopping), I find the Internet to be the most conducive medium by which to feed my addiction. I will always keep close to my heart the shiny, aspirational aesthetics of glossy magazine beauty spreads, but… More »


Boscia’s Cooling Eye Balm Smooths Over Last Night’s Wounds

I wake up to my signature puffy eye area every morning, without fail. It just so happens that my very favorite things are, in fact, the things that cause puffy under-eyes in the first place: salt, alcohol, coffee, contact lenses, staying up late, black eyeliner in my waterline … the list goes on. I’m not… More »


Beauty Test Drive: NARS Super Orgasm Blush

My friend Aileen and I popped into Sephora a couple weeks ago so I could grab a new face powder, and of course we ended up staying for two hours and testing every single product and fragrance in the store. When our epic cosmetic journey brought us to the NARS section, I spotted their new… More »


Watch: A Mesmerizing New Short Film From Chanel Makeup’s Peter Philips

While there are many things definitively Chanel that I don’t exactly promote — tweed, for instance — I almost always agree with Peter Philips. The global creative director of Chanel Makeup since 2008, Philips is responsible for crazy-coveted Le Vernis nail lacquer shades like Particulière, which sparked the frenzy for taupe-grey (or “greige”) polish back… More »


Makeup Bag: 10 Fresh Face Mists To Make Sweaty Summer Skin A Little More Bearable

I don’t know about the rest of the world — or the rest of the country, for that matter — but it’s depressingly hot at my latitude and longitude. Don’t get me wrong, I love the warm weather and sunshine, but I also like to look fairly presentable, and that is not happening right now. More »
