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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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. READ MORE »

One of my favorite hobbies is irresponsibly throwing cash, caution, and common sense to the wind, essentially handing off my dignity in return for high-end beauty products, but even my cosmetics-grubbing jaw drops at some of the prices on the stuff. Just the other day my very own father texted me to say, “Have you… READ MORE »

I have a feeling that the man himself would think very highly of this news: François Nars, the beauty maestro behind his eponymous Nars brand, will be working alongside The Andy Warhol Foundation to release a collaborative makeup collection inspired by the creative oeuvre of — who else? — the late Andy Warhol. The Pop… READ MORE »

Deciding to make a drastic hair color change is quite a daunting task, but figuring out how to adjust your makeup look can be even worse, especially if you’re going from dirty blond to Sara Rue red. Such is the dilemma of reader Rachel, who sent us a beauty distress mayday recently. You see, Rachel is worried… READ MORE »

Just like Gretchen in “Mean Girls” kept trying to make “fetch” happen, the world just keeps insisting that Olivia Wilde happen. And why not? She’s gorgeous, catlike and the daughter of leftist politco thinker Alexander Cockburn, so sure. Emma Stone, on the other hand, is a sparkly, keen-eyed redhead with great comic timing who yes,… READ MORE »

Breaking News: Julia Roberts and model Christy Turlington — both women in their 40s — are not the dewy, fresh-faced nymphs these ads for Maybelline and Lancome would have you believe. In fact, these airbrushed within-an-inch-of-their-lives ads have gotten both cosmetics companies in trouble with the United Kingdom’s Advertising Standards Authority, which regulates truth in… READ MORE »

I’m sure very few of you are considering what you’ll look like at your funerals (those of you who are, you are very creepy). But just in case, Brit cosmetics company Illamasqua has partnered with London funeral home Leverton & Sons to provide makeup looks to take you into the afterlife. Their reasoning for opening… READ MORE »

Finally, we get a peek at Solange’s ads for makeup brand Rimmel London. Last year, we reported that Rimmel signed both Zooey Deschanel and Solange to be spokeswomen of the brand. We were pleased to see Zooey’s unconventional beauty gracing magazine pages (well, except for this Photoshop fail), but I kept wondering when Solange would… READ MORE »

Elizabeth Taylor is, of course, famous for her acting career, numerous marriages, charity work, and love of diamonds, but she was also known for her classic beauty look. She often highlighted her natural beauty with a dazzling red pout, but her violet eyes always took center stage with the help of bold brows and expertly… READ MORE »

CVS has expanded its ExtraCare program to include beauty rewards, giving you a reason to shop there. (I say “a reason” because no matter where the CVS is or the time of day, I’ve always had to wait in an epic line to checkout.) Participants will get a 10 percent coupon for registering, a $5… READ MORE »

We’d be happy with having this red tartan bag just because it’s perfect for transporting our tiny valuables–like our favorite lipstick, coins, or jewelry. But MAC sweetened the deal by adding VIVA GLAM V lipstick and lip gloss to the ‘Tis Noble to Give VIVA GLAM Lip Bag. What’s even better? All proceeds go to… READ MORE »
