Helmut Red Is An Oh-So-Appropriate Tribute To A Legend

Helmut Newton is inarguably one of the most prolific fashion photographers in history. His body of work, which during his life was a mainstay in high-end publications like Vogue Paris and Harper’s Bazaar, is instantly recognizable world-over. Nudity, overt sexualization, and erotic fetishistic subtexts stylized expressively in black and white are the hallmarks of a… More »


Make Up For Ever Releasing Madonna’s Personalized Lipstick For The Unwashed Masses

Make Up For Ever made Madonna her very own high-pigment red lipstick called Aqua Rouge #8 for her MDNA world tour, which is now going to be available in stores this September. Madonna’s personal makeup artists Gina Brooke helped design the shade. [Racked]
Sofia Vergara tops the list of Forbes magazine’s highest paid… More »


Kristen Stewart’s Hot Pink Lips Are The Perfect Low-Maintenance Accessory For Summer

I have my doubts about Kristen Stewart’s capabilities as a dramatic actress, but I’ll gladly take her as a red carpet presence: in the last few months (or, really, publicity rounds) she seems to have emerged from her cocoon of hideously uncomfortable public awkwardness to flit around like a sneaker-clad fledgling butterfly (if only she… More »


Love It Or Leave It: Ombre Lips

One of the biggest trends in makeup application right now is ombre lips, in which lipstick is applied so that the color goes from dark to light, just as ombre hair is dark at the roots and light at the ends. Clicking around the web, it’s clear that people are wearing ombre lips in a… More »


Watch: A Mesmerizing New Short Film From Chanel Makeup’s Peter Philips

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… More »


Add Pop To Your Pout

Last week, when I was in San Jose for the gymnastics Olympic trials, in addition to, you know, hanging with some of the best athletes in world, I also got to get a private makeup consultation with P&G Beauty’s makeup artist Candace Corey. One of the products she recommended to me, that I just lovvvvved,More »


The Lipstick Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

It seems like lately I have about 15 tubes of lipstick in my purse at all times but whenever I need a pen there are none to be found. I’m hoping this clever lipstick pen can help me remedy this problem. [$5, Fred Flare] … More »


Beauty Test Drive: CoverGirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm

I hereby commence the first-ever meeting of the Ladies Whose Lips Are So Thin We’re Afraid Of Wearing Lipstick support group! So far, Amelia and I are the only members, but with the help of our sponsors, both of  us have been making inroads.

Part of my recovery can be attributed to the… More »


Fall Head Over Heels For Lancôme Rouge In Love

I love lipstick, possibly to a point of obsession and definitely to a point of monetary drain. The more luxurious (and French), the better — Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté, Chantecaille Lip Chic, Guerlain Rouge Automatique… be still, my beating heart. I maintain that the last testament to my sanity is the fact that I’ve… More »


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 attendants… More »


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… More »


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… More »


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 colors… More »


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 as… More »


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… More »


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. Parties… More »


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… More »


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.
