Starkeema Greenidge of Harlem attended a Rihanna concert earlier this month, where the makeup brand MAC was holding a popup shop and selling Rihanna’s new RiRi Woo lipstick. Like many a woma…

There are a few things that every makeup-lovin’ lady needs to have in her arsenal.

6 Spring Lip Colors We Can’t (And Won’t!) Wait To Wear

Kick off your boots, fuzzy socks, and leg warmers (um, do people wear those?): spring is coming, and soon. Okay, so that may be a little bit of wishful thinking on my part, and there may or may not have been a snowstorm less than a week ago. But still, spring is well on it…

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…

Beauty Test Drive: Drew Barrymore’s Flower Lip Butter

Never in the million years did I think I’d be recommending you a product sold exclusively at Walmart, renowned big box store of sex discrimination lawsuits and sexist tee shirts. Neither would I have suspected that Drew Barrymore, hippie goddess of love and light, would choose Walmart to exclusively sell her makeup line, Flower. But she…

Most Lipsticks Contain Lead, But Not Enough To Really Worry About

As a beauty product enthusiast (one might also say “hoarder,” if one were being less kind), lipstick is one of my very favorite things. At any given moment I have a bare minimum of 5 tubes rattling around in my handbag… and another 500 at home. When I buy a new one, (which I do,…

Beauty Test Drive: Revlon Balm Stain

I am very possibly a lip beauty product hoarder. Alas, that is not what we are here to discuss.

I’d long admired the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain at my local pharmacy, but I never felt justified in forking over $8 for yet another lip product. Then last weekend I lost my…

Tis The Season For Darker Lipstick

From brick to burgundy, matte to glossy, celebs across the country have been spotted wearing this fall’s classic trend: dark lipstick.

Beauty Cues: Amanda Seyfried Spikes This Classic Red Lip Look

With her fair hair and icy complexion, there’s no doubt in my mind that Amanda Seyfried can pull off just about any makeup look. The “Les Misérables” actress killed it at Paris Fashion Week earlier in the month wearing the season’s perfectly on-trend plum lipstick, but she brightened things up for the Hollywood Film Award…

A Lipstick Pencil To Solve Any Equation

For all my love of all the makeup, I’m undeniably fickle. I buy and try everything, only to eventually cast it all aside because it isn’t quite perfect. This is especially true when it comes to my lip color ― not only do I need the hottest, brightest orange-leaning red this side of the sun,…

4 Ways To Rock The Purple Lip Trend

Unlike orange or tangerine, purple lipstick is a trendy color that works on everyone; you just have to find the right shade. I suggest printing some pictures out (like the ones below) of lip colors you like and take them with you to the makeup counter. This will help narrow down your options and give…

French Artist Sculpts A 330-Pound Cube Out Of Yves Saint Laurent Lipstick

Leave it to the French to come up with a fresh, creative, avant-garde use for a practical product from one of their most iconic brands: conceptual artist Fabrice Hyber crafted a 330-pound, one-meter cube, titled “1m3 de Beauté” (or “One Cubic Meter of Beauty”) of solid Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade…

Beauty Test Drive: Bobbi Brown Rich Lipstick

I’ve never been big on lipstick. I have thin lips and I also drink coffee constantly, so it seemed like any foray into lipstick would be a waste. But as I get older (and wean myself off caffeine), I’ve taken the plunge into what feels like more grown-up makeup than my usual lip balm, or…

Beauty Test Drive: Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar

Ever since I got in on the bold lipstick game, I’ve been on the hunt for the most pigmented, longest-lasting color around. It’s fairly safe to say that I’ve tried at least half of the formulas on the market (or at least that you can buy at Sephora, where I am basically the resident squatter),…

Gwen Stefani And Prada Are Cool With Coloring Outside The (Lip) Lines

I’m like a magpie as far as beauty products go — I’m drawn instinctively to anything bright, sparkly, bizarre, or beautiful — but when it comes to what I put on my own face, I’m an unlikely makeup classicist, and I most definitely stay inside the lines. At the S/S 2013 Prada show in Milan,…

Beauty How-To: Get The Perfect Precise Statement Lip For Fall In Five Easy Steps

The cooler seasons always call for more dramatic beauty looks, from sultry smoky eyes to vampy red lips, but this year’s focus is especially inclined toward a statement lip that’s a touch darker than the usual fall fare. Most of us (myself included) won’t have the guts for the vampy bordeaux lips we’ve been seeing…
