Cue the Earth Month product marketing. Each year around this time, we start receiving dozens upon dozens of press releases heralding April launches that are so loosely tied to anything remotely environmentally-friendly we have to laugh. Refreshingly, there’s no greenwashing here: Kiehl’s (who maintains a recycling program in their stores), teamed up with Julianne Moore, Pharrell Williams, artist Jeff Koons and surfer Malia Jones to create celeb-designed labels for their Açaí Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, a product which we are obsessed with. The spritz smells amazing, is Eco Cert certified organic, and is part of the first skincare range to ever receive gold standard Cradle to Cradle certification (minimal waste from production start to finish). The cherry on top? One hundred percent of net proceeds benefit the Rainforest Alliance. Now that’s pretty green. They’re available for $26 each right now at Kiehls.com and in stores April 1st.

What are your thoughts on Julianne Moore‘s eyeliner here? Va-va-voom chic or just too wacky witch? I can’t decide. On one hand, she totally played her makeup cards exactly right—she went big on the eyes and muted the rest of her face. On the other, I just can’t seem to get past the fact that I can barely make out her eyes through all the black! (And talk about making her eyes look smaller.) I think what she did here (or her makeup artist did, rather) was go with dual eyeliner. Basically, she started with a liquid, applied a line all the way around her eye, making it thicker at the outer corners and thinner at the inner corners and then came back with a shadow over top. And from the looks of it, the product has a little bit of shimmer in it too (are you seeing the wet-look there?), like the shadow in Stila’s Purrfect Eyes kit. My advice? If you are going with the double-dip of eyeliners, try it out first on just your top lid, then see if it’s really necessary to pile it on. Keep reading »
Oooh, this movie “Chloe” looks good—and I’m not just saying that because this trailer is in French! Julianne Moore and Liam Neeson play a husband and wife and Amanda Seyfried is the escort whom Moore hires to test her husband’s fidelity. But really her fidelity is the one being tested when a smoldering Seyfried seduces the red-headed siren into some girl-on-girl sexytime. Honestly, the Moore/Seyfried kiss isn’t that hot … but Amanda Seyfried in pull-up stockings and garters is scorched into my brain.
Really, who needs English? Keep reading »
Love Julianne Moore. Don’t love Julianne’s choice of dress color. She looks a bit sickly, no? When it comes to picking out a dress or blouse, I swear people don’t bother to think about their skin tone. It’s funny because with anything makeup-related the first question is: “Will this work with my skin tone?” Um, hello, your top has to make just as much skin color sense as your shade of red lipstick!
Like Ms. Moore, I’m a pale person. Granted, I don’t have skin as pretty as hers, but I take serious pains to make sure I do my pale (and sometimes ghostly white) skin every possible favor. And that means never wearing this type of neutral, blah color—I let the more olive-skinned lady folk rock it, the women who always look great in this nude hue. Me, I buy loads of jewel-toned tops and, if I really want a nude or a neutral, I’ll wear it on my bottom half, so it doesn’t suck all the color out of my face and make me look green. What about you — do you consider skin tone when shopping or putting on your clothes every morning? Do you have a go-to color that always makes your skin look great? Keep reading »
