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 Awards… More »


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,… More »


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… More »


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… More »


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… More »


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),… More »


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,… More »


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… More »


Will You Be Wearing Matching Lips And Nails This Fall?

So I guess matching your lipstick to your nail polish is kind of a thing now? A bevy of designers, from Giorgio Armani to Zac Posen, walked coordinating shades down the runway last season, but something about its slightly contrived nature led me to believe it was just one of those things that wouldn’t take… More »


Watch: Chanel Goes Dada With A New Teaser For Rouge Allure Lipstick

In the vast, ever-evolving cosmos of luxury makeup, Chanel unfailingly offers some of the very best — and they come with gorgeous artsy videos, to boot. The brand has been teasing us with short promotional flicks advertising their upcoming Rouge Allure reformulation for some time, and what this new video lacks in the hypnotic factor… More »


Anthropologie Makes Their First Foray Into Beauty With An Exclusive Lipstick Line

Anthropologie gives me a complex. I walk in and I’m like, “I want this life,” which turns into “Does anyone actually have this life?,” which quickly becomes “Why is this life so goddamn expensive?” I go because I want one top; I emerge with that top, a whimsical set of $20 bobby pins, a $60… More »


Step It Up, Lipstick, Hourglass Opaque Rouge Is Making You Look Bad

It’s official: we’ve entered an age in which your average lipstick just won’t cut it, and neither will the slippery high-gloss patinas of yore. We need moisturizing, long-wearing, intensely pigmented matte colors that won’t flake, fade, or budge, and we need them, like, yesterday. Enter Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick, a rich, creamy formula that… More »


Beauty Test Drive: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

I think I’ve mentioned my love for Revlon Lip Butters a few times now, most recently in the context of my summer makeup routine, but I thought it was time to make things official and ask Lip Butter to marry me write up a full Beauty Test Drive. This awesome lip balm/lipstick hybrid is the… More »


Jessica Chastain Proves The Old “Redheads Can’t Wear Pink” Adage So Very Wrong

So who was it that said redheads couldn’t wear pink? Sure, one of Jessica Chastain’s false lashes may be trying to make a run for it, but the rest of her looks freakin’ fabulous. With that said, I am neon pink lipstick’s fiercest, most loyal advocate; I will testify to the death that a seriously… More »


Lust Vs. Must: Awesome Orange-y Red Lipstick

Coral is the color of summer. But do you want to spend a ton of money on a lipstick you’ll probably shove deep in your junk drawer once fall comes? We didn’t think so. So we’ve compared some of the most popular corals on the market. Can you tell which is the $24 lipstick and… More »


Should Heidi Klum Get Her “Responsible Mom” Card Revoked For Letting Her Girls Wear Lipstick?

Growing up, I was never given any restrictions regarding whether or not I could wear makeup, or how much makeup I was allowed to wear. My parents, who are admittedly pretty laissez faire by most standards, are also the type to choose their battles, and what I put on my face was just not one… More »
