Virgin Atlantic Launches Its Own Lipstick (Yes, Really)

Any excuse for a new red lipstick is a good excuse, right? The airline Virgin Atlantic has debuted its own lipstick, Upper Class Red, in collaboration with actual makeup purveyors bareMinerals. Random! The color is modeled after Virgin uniforms and the airline’s “grooming manager” explained the lipstick’s blue undertones are universally flattering. Female flight attendant…

Ricky Martin Does Some Heavy Lifting

Here’s Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj in a new ad series for M.A.C.’s Viva Glam collection. All sales from their lip conditioner (Ricky’s) and lipstick (Nicki’s) go toward helping families impacted by HIV and AIDS, so it’s a great cause. But aside from that, this ad just makes me really, extremely happy. Look at Ricky…

Lipstick 101: How To Find The Perfect Bold Lipstick

Figuring out how to wear a bold lip can be a daunting task, especially if you’re not used to wearing lipstick. (Or if you’re basically used to ignoring the fact that you have lips on your face altogether.) The wrong shade can wash you out, or make you look lizard-y. And when you’re wearing a…

A Pencil For The Perfect Pout

I like my lipstick like I like my men — bright and smooth to the touch. Kidding! Kidding! But I do happen to like lipsticks that are bright, matte and add a little extra punch. That’s why I’m super into these new high pigment pencils from Bite. Available now at Sephora, Bite’s long-wearing lip color…

Makeup Bag: Put Some Spring On Your Lips

Is it still winter? I don’t even know anymore. The calendar says early March, a time of year that’s supposed to be defined by rain, slush, and extreme wind chill, but the weather has been saying 55 degrees and sunny. What?! For all intents and purposes, I have deemed that it is spring. It might a…

Beauty Test Drive: Target PixiGlow Fairy Face Palette

Looking pretty is all about light in the right places: that is the philosophy behind Pixi’s new PixiGlow-inspired line for Target.

And it’s a philosophy they’ve fulfilled more than admirably. I actually love their Fairy Face Palette so much that I’ve used it daily since December and I’m already fretting about whether I’ll…

Winter Beauty: 10 Festive Holiday Lipsticks

I love lipstick and own many, but wearing them on a regular day makes me feel … overdone. Of course, the unfortunate byproduct of this is that I rarely give myself the opportunity to wear the colours that I just had to have. Luckily, the winter holiday season is the perfect justification for me. Partie…

Finally, A Red Lipstick For Modest Pouts

Sadly — and please, get your hankies ready because this is a tearjerker — I was born with no upper lip. My bottom lip is modest, but the top lip is so thin it’s practically non-existent. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always seen lipstick as something that would only draw attention to…

The Perfect Red Lip

Unlike the vast majority of fashion enthusiasts, I wouldn’t call myself a Chanel obsessor. Though I covet old photos of Coco with a string of pearls and a cigarette, I refuse to idolize a Nazi spy, and Karl Lagerfeld is about as pretentious and boring as the bouclé suits the line is famous for. Many…

Fancy Ladies Are Wearing $55 Lipstick Made From Caviar

We’re all familiar with today’s notion of “luxury lipstick”: I, for one, am so desensitized that a $24 NARS price tag strikes me as a steal.  Enter Tom Ford, who practically bleeds couture. The high-end tastemaker was not the first to introduce the concept to the public, but at $48, his coveted gold-and-white metal tube…

Rediscovering Gold Lipstick

Ask any of my friends about my signature makeup look, and they’ll tell you that I love a bold lip–either red or purple–it doesn’t matter as long as it’s noticeable. But lately, I’ve rediscovered my favorite lip color in high school — IMAN Citron. I used to slather on this gold lipstick when I wanted…

Lip Tattoos: Fancy Or Freakish?

Lip tattoos have arrived, ladies, and I’m deciding if this leopard print pair will be part of my new spring look. Violent Lips, temporary lip tattoos, come in lots of hues and prints for any mood, occasion, or getup. My pros and cons list after the jump.

Do You Wear Bold Lipstick For Yourself Or Your Guy?

Since I decided to go bold with my lipstick two years ago, there have been few occasions that I’ve painted my pout nude. Yet, my boyfriend can’t seem to get past “the attention” my bright lips bring.

I proudly rock bold lips for me and could care less about the stares or whispers. Sorry,…

Kate Winset Wants to Do It With Some Lipstick

Okay we get it, sex sells. But this Lancome commercial would have us believe that Kate Winslet really wants to have sexytimes with some lipstick. Watch as she writhes around on the floor in the nude with a set of the glosses and seductively puts a swipe of the stuff on her maw. No…

Sex Toy Test Drive: Booty Parlor’s Lipstick Vibrator

When a girl’s down, she finds out who’s got her back! I’ve got a friend in Booty Parlor, the sex toy company: after I stupidly left one of my vibrators behind in my old apartment after a breakup, they sent me a new vibe in the mail, stat! And it wasn’t a regular old dildo-style…
